They are in denial.
There's no reason at all why they would announce an expansion for a game that isn't even released yet, let a alone a game that's actually going to be free, and hence "expansions" doesn't even make sense.
Announce Interrupts: Announces in chat when you interrupt a spell.
Tol Barad Reminder: Reminds you to queue for Tol Barad by printing a message when the battle is approaching.
EasyLogger: Turns on /combatlog inside raid instances, and off outside.

Or even more out of left field - a console game. Solely through game disc media.
There's 2 issues I have with this: 1. It fucks up the entire Warcraft storyline, right from the get-go. Just the act of going back in time essentially is a reset button. And 2. Gigantic plot hole: if we're stopping Garrosh again, why don't we just stop him from ever going back in time, rather than following him and fucking shit up worse?
But it'd be cooler to have a different expansion entirely, and have WoD be an RTS (Warcraft 4, if you will), based on the Horde's rise (both the time period and Christie Golden's book), with both Orc and Draenei campaigns. I digress though, since "I'm just delusional and don't see the obvious awesomeness."
Why would they be working on an xpac for game that's still in beta? WoD is the next wow expansion, I'm gonna say I'm 100% sure

You choose a category in which you wish to register, then you need to specify, making it too specific gives the chance someone uses the IP outside of the registered categories, making it too broad increases the chance of objections.
Tbh it's a huge company with several lawyers and several employees beneath them handling these registrations, they probably have a policy but as with everything have some margin within that policy, one registration could be different from another.
Also keep in mind that trademark and patent law is extremely difficult and its far more complicated then just looking up words, you have to keep in mind that there is a lot more involved for instance jurisprudence.
i dont get it either hs and portable devices muah...
the chinese firm who ripped hs off will release that not blizz - blizzard is to big and slow to do changes
