wow, you sure put a lot o effort into this
Blizzard should hire you. As much as i don't want a cataclysm 2.0 that would be amazing.
I've tried to make the dungeons distinctive - it won't be all underground nerubian ruins in the vein of the Azjol-Nerub of Ahn'Kahet dungeons from Wrath.
Wow. That's an incredible amount of work you've done there. Blizzard needs a few more employees like yourself.
Anyway, I really like the idea. Especially the map of Dragonblight with the HUGE gaping hole that players can fly (assuming) through to get to the Spider Kingdom. That's always how I imagined we would enter Deepholm - through a huge hole in the ground that Deathwing created. It would have been amazing... but of course, they took the Maelstrom 'instanced zone' route. Of course, the amount of work otherwise would have been immense. Still cool to think about.
Thanks for providing a nice read!

Good idea i'd like to see with a patch, but not as a FULL expansion. But to be honest Northrend is a good enough area for levelling there's a lot of variety in the different zones which keeps levelling phone. having the same repetitive mobs and ish would make it boring /cough cataclysm.
Anyway they should hire you in an instant. You got a great brain that just needs heading in the right direction as well as amazing art skills. You should consider applying!
You are incredibly gifted. I don't even want to know just how much time you have put into this Should consult for Blizzard!
This is a really well-made concept. Based on face value I would love to play this. I enjoyed Northrend and the Nerubian story so this would be right up my ass.
I am wondering what the deal is with the 93 cap, though.
Thats what Blizzard did wrong. They forgot that the Spider Kingdom existed. Seriously...Anub'arak a 5men boss????Wtf were they thinking (I know that he was a boss in ToC but it wasn't even 1% as epic as it coulda been).
Holy crap! That's some really nice stuff.
I also felt that they missed out on alot of stuff about the Nerubian kingdom being the same size as whole Northrend, should have put alot of more focus on that. You also mention Gundrak which I also thought was poory thought-through by Blizzard, many people discussed that place and thought it could've been so cool with a raid or some nice lore or something.
Keep up the good work... Keeps getting better.

Garrosh Hellscream:"Shut your clever mouth, bitch."
Terenas Menethil II:"At long last. No king rules forever, my son."
Kenny:"I'm just waiting for a fire axe to hack through my door one day and see aulio on the other side goin "heeeeeeeeres johnny"
StarFade:Are you actually serious? To quote every rapper:"How fucked-up is you?"
So I definetly TL;DR this post so my comment my or may not be void buuuuut I want my northrend achievements that I don't have yet which i'm sure a lot of other people will feel the same way so this would definetly be one of those things that would have to be a phase.
Man, Golden, with the new info on the Old God fighting against each other in the past. You going have to update your history and how would these new nerubian would work under Yogg-Saron or the Twilight Hammer.
I'll just say that I read that and would definitely come back to WoW if this was the next expansion!
might need update for Dragonblight with the new 4.3 instances
Update! Small one, but as promised earlier, I've replaced the godawful photoshop of Sapphiron the Wychlord with some decent concept art. And it's colored!
Sapphiron the Wychlord:
Re-animated by the power of the Malevolence, the remains of Sapphiron continue to threaten the living in the form of the Wychlord. The Malevolence will not stop until all arcane creatures, living or dead, are under its complete control.
Next update - More bestiary monsters and dungeon maps.
I'm doing a write-up about the level system that will take people from 90 to 93. It's called the Path of War, and hopefully it'll clear things up. Slow going cuz I'm not much of a game mechanic designer, but it should take form soon.
That is not likely to change for either the Newbreed of the Twilight Scourge.
Thanks everyone for the comments. More comin'.
