I go over how I made the maps here:
Good luck with the idea!
I have nothing to say other than "Blizzard, hire this guy!" - really amazing work, Golden Yak. I really enjoy reading the updates eventhough I'm not an active sub anymore.

"...some cheese for your whine ?" "Oh goody, another LFR thread!"
Haven't been here for a long time, but just came back and noticed the new changes, really like 'em ^.^ I really hope that we get to further explore the Nerubians at some point.
What are you willing to sacrifice?
Interesting stuff, pretty cool ideas it made me wish this could actually happen.
Cone on, just confirm already that "Spider Kingdom" was a lame name and "The Dark Below" is way cooler.
Then I thought "oh, it might mean underwater too. So, like, Azshara expansion? That'd be pretty great, really."
And now it seems like it was a hoax, and the logo floating around is definitely fake, but... eh! Maybe next expansion!
All the recent buzz about expansions and new patches and such drove me to put the finishing touches on a Spider Kingdom patch. Behold - Patch X.2!!
Spider Kingdom Patch X.2 - Malevolence Rising
The nerubians and their Twilight Cult allies have suffered heavy setbacks, but just as the shadows of doom seem to recede from Northrend, new threats rear their head.
Icecrown Citadel falls under assault by Angerboda and her undead vrykul forces. She has one goal and will not turn from it - she seeks the crown of the Lich King for herself.
Beneath the Storm Peaks, the missing watcher of Ulduar, Tyr, has re-appeared. But he has come commanding a legion of monstrous iron dwarves that are preparing to assault the surface.
And haunting Northrend's ravaged ley lines is the Malevolence, a being of arcane magic and implacable hatred, whose rise threatens all of Azeroth.
Evil is on the rise in Azeroth's underworld...
Mostly finished, few pages I still want to add. One more patch left!*Level cap raised to 95 - the Path of War marches on...
*New high level quest-chain in Crystalsong Forest that leads to a new zone: Shadowcrown Glacier.
*New zone unlocked - Shadowcrown Glacier. It is separated into three large sub-regions - The Vile Cascade, the Sea of Saronite, and Dreadstorm City.
*Many new level 94 and 95 quest-chains have been added. Battle the dread iron dwarves and their fiendish creations, stop Angerboda from creating a new Scourge, and battle the Malevolence and his servants.
*Several new scenarios have begun:
Fall of Malykriss
The Storming of Icecrown Citadel
Cleansing of the Nexus
*Three new level 95 dungeons have been found:
Karazhan: The Depths
*Three new level 95 raids have been unlocked:
Karazhan: The Malevolence Rift
This is very well done.
I see that some of the raidbosses of X.2 have already spells and abilities, but most 5 man bosses and all of the X.1 bosses don't have them. DO you plan to add them later? I enjoy reading through those stuff. xD
Sigh... It's funny how blizzard lets down some of the best ideas for an expansion and make stuff that isn't very important to the lore such as Pandaria. By that I mean who cared about pandaria or pandarens before MoP got announced? Blizzard knows what the players want and think is awesome yet they make stuff which lowers subs and then wonder why. Excellent idea Golden Yak. 10/10 and I hope one day you work for blizzard to help make such an expansion possible "Soon™".
You are the king of fan expansions.
I like the concept of a villain going after the crown of the lich king. I mean, it's such a powerful artifact, you would think SOMEONE would be interested in it. Awesome job at naming stuff too. "Shadowcrown Glacier", "Vile Cascade" sound amazing.
Also inb4 your patch logo is in a YouTube video screenshot.
