    N'zoth is behind the Nightmare. He was also behind the Cataclysm and presumably when Azshara starts doing stuff he'll be behind that too. In Dawn of the Aspects it's mentioned (IIRC) that N'zoth is searching for a new Nightmare Lord. Whenever we visit the ED (Whether through a patch or an expansion) it'll be that pawn of N'zoth who we'll be facing.

    I believe N'zoth will be one of (if not the) final boss of WoW should we ever get that far.

    The dream is full of sentient beings. There's one sentence on wowpedia from years ago saying that the ED is "how Azeroth would have been if it's surface hadn't been altered by mortals" (to paraphrase.). And then in future appearances of the ED it's chock full of druids, dragons, satyr, worgen, dryads etc.

    There's sentient beings galore and as demonstrated by places like the Eye of Ysera and Daral'nir they have settlements and gathering places as well.
    Disclaimer: No I'm not Alliance. I reserve the right to bat for both factions thank you very much.

    Agree completely.

    Emerald Dream was an ok idea I guess, I just never really thought very much of it. My friend has been convinced from vanilla all the way to they said that it isn't going to be an expansion that every "next" expansion would be Emerald Dream. Like 15 mins into Hyjal quests in Cata he was completely convinced that the like 1 quest where you go into the cave was foreshadowing for the "next" expansion. It really always gave me a lot of entertainment listening to him every single expansion convince himself that the next was going to be Emerald Dream, and the inevitable ridicule that came whenever a new expansion was announced. Good times.

    we [blizzard] have a terribly narrow imagination on what the ED/EN could look like, we have no ideas, and because our ideas are narrow and boring, a whole expension basing on our narrow uninspired vision of an ED would be boring too, thats why we dont try to expand our imagination and rather leave the idea behind"

    The Druid/Hyjal/Cenarion Circle-Expedition/Firelands etc. has been done to death. It was boring to begin with unless you were a Druid and it was a huge pain to everybody else in the game who never even cared about it. Silithus, Zangarmarsh, Hyjal, Molten Front, Moonglade...some of the most boring places in the game.

    I'm glad they're not making an Emerald Dream expansion, people are sick of Druid stuff. It's boring. My rogue and warrior don't give two damns about running around your forest and fixing the trees and planting new flowers. Go do it by yourself.

    I don't normal criticize Blizzard but I am sorry but anybody with any slight imagination could've made the Emerald Dream an exotic varied place... Considering it's a backup of pre Titan Azeroth they had a limitless amount of artistist options. Yes there would be green forests but they could've had swamps, jungles, deserts, vast lakes etc! It could've quite easily been made as variable as other expansions

    Just disappointed

    Sounds like you just want the name ''Emerald Dream'' at the start of an expansion. They've not said they would never use the concept, they simply wouldn't want to draw out an entire ''continent's worth of jungle, and tbh I agree. I think the singular focus on the Dream itself doesn't have much scope that hasn't already been played out. Sorry that you don't.

    You could say that about any aspect of the game! I personally find an expansion about orcs incredibly tedious and overused

    No, it's because it has limitless potential that they wanna just shelve in favour of orcs, aliens & alternative dimensions

    It actually is very limited in its potential, It's a static environment that technically isn't even real. And duh everything is in favor of orcs, WARCRAFT IS ABOUT ORCS AND HUMANS!! always has been always will be.

    Omg, Yes.

    That story alone would make the expansion.

    mmm......i acctualy think they are right. i like nagrand. but if whole of dreanor was like that it would get boring very very very very fast.
    And i know lore addicts love the emerald dream. personaly i think WoD is the last step before the return of the legion. And my geuss will be that the emerald dream will be a part ( like a zone or zones ) to level in. or like the molton front/timeless isle a quest hub with rep etc.

    but hey there will Always be people who dodnt like blizzard because they didnt get there purple dragon that loves a certain book charchter that didnt ever apear ingame expansion.

    I personaly like most of the things. but hey who am i... i like all yes...ALL expansions so far. even love leveling in vashir :P

    personaly i am disappointed with people who make threads like these about stuff like this. If we do a dream expansion, buring legion fans go ape shit, if we do a legion expansion dream guys go bunkers, if they focus on allaince the hord gets pissed etc etc etc etc. so QQ and if you dodnt like the game/storys stop playing the game.
