Update - For the record, the international codes 009 and 041 only seems to appear on Blizzard's online games trademarks. This isn't a book or anything like that. It appears incredibly likely based on previous trademarks obtained by Blizzard that this is the next expansion.


Mists of Pandaria
Blizzard just trademarked a very interesting "Mists of Pandaria".

    Funny. I will be sure to resubscribe for Mists of Pandaria. My purchase of CE MoP and 1 year paid up subscription > your cancellation. Checkmate!

In literally every single case of people saying that, it turned out to be true. Stop trolling yourselves. When it turns out to be true, the only reason you'll see it as a "slap in the face" or whatever other stupid exaggerated phrase you want to use is your own fault.
      2. It's not going to be a WoW expansion....this IS Titan. Titan was always a code word. Medusa was the code for SC2, Hydra was the code for D3, and now Titan is the code for something else, so no one start saying there's more to the word "Titan" than just a word. Zarhym was quoted saying "We have nothing to advertise for the new MMO because it's a shell of a game thus far. We've already stated it'll be a brand new franchise, which means the lore, art, and game play are being developed entirely from scratch. It's an overwhelming process, but a process through which we excel. Our track record supports this." A pandarian game supports this. New franchise? Since Pandarians aren't really part of the WoW universe and definitely not part of any other Blizzard franchise universe, this checks out. Lore, art, and game play from scratch? Pandarian lore is from Blizzard is a shell at best, so that would need to be developed from scratch. The art is certainly going to need to be developed from nothing, since Pandarian art is a few handful of drawings. Etc etc etc. Titan IS Mists of Pandaria.
    Oh man! I don't know why you believe so firmly that Mists of Pandaria is Titan. If you do some very simple research with google, you'll see a lot of information about Titan that has NOTHING to do with Pandaria. And what makes you think Pandaria is not a part of any other Blizzard universe? Assuming you haven't played Warcraft 3. Anyways, can't wait for more info to prove you are COMPLETELY wrong! Hopefully this year's Blizzcon!

    derp derp. Pandaria is a continent. The title has nothing to do with the end boss being a Panda.

    Who says the expansions are released by this imaginary pattern that some people hold as strong evidence? First two expansions brought new continents, cata didn't. With each year Blizzard are developing WoW content faster, so I won't be surprised if they release new races and classes together.

    this is probably just like patch 5.1 they would be retarded to name it this, now "mists of the south shore" or "mists of vashir", much better names

    For those using Blizzard's logic of "we don't want to just drop new races on you without introducing them to the players in WoW first."

    Let me list them.

    Tuskarr
    Tol'Vir
    Wolvar
    Iron Dwarves
    Vrykul
    Kvaldir
    Val'kyr
    Gorlocks
    Pygmies

    Yes, you can argue that Tuskarr were introduced in WC3... but so were Belfs - and that was why the point of the comment was made that they were no were originally pre-BC. Plus, not everybody who plays WoW played WC3 (I didn't). Now, the only argument I could offer is that this might counter Pandaren as a playable race. But, I'd be surprised if Blizz didn't give people the demand they've been wanting for so long. They gave us flying in Azaroth, which is 200x more difficult to create than a bunch of Panda people. I still say I'd love Pandaren Monks to be the "hero class". You not only play a new class, but ONLY as a Pandaren!

    How can you make a race into a class? A race is a race. Even if there was only one class available for them, Pandaren would still be a race.

    Wow it would be pretty awesome if they go more into the pandas! This makes me look forward to Blizzcon

    come on, people were all OMG CUDDLY YIFFY FURRY WORGENS CATACLYZM GUN BE SO BAD TROLOLOLOL aswell. pandarens will most likely not be a playable race as blizz has said in the past they wont be, not to mention the fail lore they'd have to make up for them to be deathknights.

    Fanboys are obviously free to stay and enjoy the game even until the further expansion, which will probably be all about rainbow-colored little ponys of doom which will be sold and bought for real money at the Auction House...

    And obviously they will find it "great", "cool" and "awesome".

    Whatever...

    *rollseyes*
    You may not be a fanboy, but you're obviously not even a fan. I've never heard of a Warcraft fan who didn't like the Brewmaster.

    This must be the expansion where they clean up all the loose ends since launchWOW:MOP

    People calling players "fanboys", because they like the game, or because they don't share their opinion about the game, are hilarious.

    Blizzard is probably not going to add a race that can join both factions. Blizzard's developers have frequently discussed the importance of character silhouettes in their class design. They want players to be able to see the outline of another character and know instantly what faction that character represents. If there were a race that could represent either faction, that race's silhouette wouldn't provide any information about it's faction affiliation.

    Since Blizzard isn't going to give Pandarin to just one faction if the title of the expansion is "Mists of Pandaria," I am confident that there will not be playable Pandarin in the next expansion.

    Monks can be a class without being a race. Imagine a new set of zones called Pandaria in which the Pandaren NPC race has brought the monk class to the rest of Azeroth.

    Wait wait wait wait. Of course the monk can be a class. Not only can it be a class, it could be nothing else. A class is a certain profession, a group of individuals from different races (in most cases) that are living, acting and fighting in a certain way. A race is a group of people with the same genetic properties. But the question was not, whether the monk could be a class, but if Pandaren would be a class. And Pandaren most certainly is not a class - it's a race.
