Keep an eye out for more content here and elsewhere in the near future!

    Now you turned it into an April Fools. Now a mod's gonna have to lock it.
    Permanently unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.
    Maybe I'll be back for WoW2, but probably not. - Slowpoke, the former Dokhidamo

    I was very disappointed with AN as well. It was supposed to be a zone and it turned out to be 2 5-mans. I don't understand how come such a fertile theme was wasted so easily. I would like to hope they had such awesome ideas that they saved them for a future expansion, but having seen pandas it is more likely Blizz is truly getting shallower with imagination and creativity.

    This continuity error may have been edited somewhere along the way in this 21+ page thread so forgive me if this has been addressed, but there is one major problem with your idea.

    You mention that the Nexus is torn apart. And it is also clear that this version of Northrend is supposed to happen directly before the events of Cataclysm in order to fix the "time machine" issue. The problem with this is that in the Firelands, you NEED to go to the Nexus in order to appoint Kalecgos as the new Aspect of Magic. But if the Nexus gets destroyed previously to that ....

    I think you see where I'm going with this.

    I'd actually like to see this. Not so soon after wrath though. I'd like to see some expansion of outlands and then this.

    Though, for next years april fools day post I think Blizz should post that this is the next exp.....and follow through with it...since their april fools jokes are terrible and easy to spot now.

    It's probably because he wrote most of the lore before 4.3, so he didn't know the nexus would be needed again. But that can easily be adressed

    "Spider kingdom" is kind of a crappy name though.

    With the release of Mists of Pandaria, I feel much better about many aspects of this concept, from overall theme to the name.

Unless this, somehow, took place literally right after the Cataclysm, some of that lorewouldn't fit with the info we got in Cataclysm, especially patch 4.3.
    It actually fits pretty well. It took Malygos a lot of time and resources to realign Azeroth's ley lines, and he wasn't exactly being careful about it. Kalec was the Aspect of Magic for the proverbial blink of an eye, and he was focused on fighting Deathwing the entire time. Him losing Aspect status would make fixing the ley lines a lot more difficult.

    As for the infinites, I like the idea of having the remainder of them lurking around the furthest reaches of the timeways, forever causing trouble. I also have this theory that their leader Murozond was a corrupt version of Nozdormu after he lost his Aspect status - meaning he was just a very powerful bronze dragon. So there's no real reason why another corrupted bronze dragon couldn't take Murozond's place...

The Scourge should still be the main enemy, and maybe some Necropolis's have fallen, but there should also be some that had risen. What happened to Icecrown Citadel exactly? Was it taken over by the Twilight's Hammer? Or is it still in Scourge possession? A great add on to the story is that the the Frostmourne has been re-forged by the same person who had stole it's remnants(Sylvanas) or the current Lich king has been completely corrupted.
    The Scourge had their expansion already - I wanted to focus on the evils rising up from Azeroth's underworld instead. There are still remnants of the Scourge scattered around Northrend, serving various powerful liches and death knights, but most of them are still being kept under wraps by Bolvar. Maybe he's just stronger than Arthas was...?

    Re. your questions - Icecrown Citadel is under the control of the Knights of the Ebon Blade, led by Darion Mograine, and a few token forces of the Argent Crusade and Wyrmrest Accord. The Twilight's Hammer briefly took the outer chambers (the Halls of Reflection, etc.) but eventually retreated after capturing the saronite necropolis, Malykriss.

    Frostmourne's shards are something that Blizzard clearly has plans for - I'm trying to avoid stepping on their toes, and focusing on stuff they haven't touched on as much. I do have a little story idea for a single shard that was lost...

Unf...ingbelievable... /end rant
    If nothing else, Panda-island expansion has proved that no idea is too limited to be expansion-worthy. We might yet be treking through Azeroth's underworld, one day...

    We've exchanged PMs. No plans to collaborate, but he's made some great stuff of his own.

    I hadn't meant to imply that the Nexus was totally flattened - it's been damaged, but the dungeon area and the Eye of Eternity are still intact. The blue dragonflight and their struggle to restore the ley lines is a big part of a future storyline, so I was always planning to revisit these areas, and needed them to survive. Only the Oculus rings were completely destroyed, and the surrounding area of Coldarra was damaged.

    These events could easily be moved to post-Cataclysm however, if it ever becomes an issue - the damage can be a result of the blue dragons attempting to repair the ley lines.

    Lol omg this is funny and awesome!

    Have to say good work for a fan-made info blog on a "joke" xpac, pretty cool imo though.

    Yeah, that's right - update happening.

    Terrormaw Hold
    The furbolg of Northrend were lured into the depths of the underworld and fell under the dark influence of Yogg-Saron. Living within the roots of the corrupted world tree, Vordrassil, they have transformed into monstrous creatures barely recognizable as the beings they once were. Liquid saronite has infested their bodies, granting them twisted metallic hide, fangs, and claws. In the depths of the Shadow Web Caverns, these furbolg have crafted a stronghold known as Terrormaw Hold.

    Deep within the curling, crudely carved tunnels of their underground fortress, the corrupted furbolg have gathered together in great numbers to undertake a dark and terrible ritual. They seek to resurrect the bear god Ursol, as the furbolg of the Grizzly Hills did to the bear god's twin brother, Ursoc. This time, however, the furbolg are knowingly attempting to revive the Ancient as an evil, twisted version of himself, a dark reflection of his former glory. This abomination will then lead the corrupted furbolg to the surface, making war upon all those who dwell in the light.
    Bosses:


    Ursol, the final boss, in Heroic Mode:


    Bigger version here. Shur'nab, Yogg-Saron!

    Hey... I was in Azjol Nerub on an alt and it reminded me of this thread. It was ages since I had last checked your wowpedia page, but it looks like your still working on it!Most people who have an expansion idea either do it half-arsed or never finish it at all and it's good to see that you're really going all out =P. I'm really looking forward to seeing your ideas for the Halls of Horror. And the Tribual of Restriction seems really interesting by the way...

    Keep up the good work =)

    Thanks Havocz. This project has fallen by the wayside a bit because I don't have the time to do big flash art bits much anymore, and I don't like to update without big flash art bits. But I am still poking away at the wowpedia pages to flesh out the last of the dungeons. Once it's all done I'll probably do one last big update to finish things off.

    I don't usually post in threads started in 2010 but since it got resurrected yesterday and I'd never actually perused through it, I'll congratulate you on the work you put into it. It's a fun read. Since I'm something of an arachnophobe, it's probably not 100% my cup of tea but all said, it's pretty cool.

    You know, Greg Street [Ghostcrawler] got his start in the business by including an Age of Empires scenario he designed with his resume. It happens.

    Best to you.
