Blizzard Trademarks "Warlords of Draenor" - WoW Expansion
Blizzard just trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand. It was then registered in Australia shortly after.

  • Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software, computer game software downloadable from a global computer network, interactive multimedia computer game program; downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs.
  • Entertainment services, namely, providing on-line computer games; providing on-line non-downloadable computer games that may be accessed via a global computer network; providing online news and information in the field of computer games.

It's also worth mentioning that warlordsofdraenor.com was registered a month ago.

I do realize that we had a lot of fun times with trademarks in the past (*cough* Dark Below *cough*) but let's just say that on a personal level I'm pretty confident about this one. I'll leave the speculation up to you guys until Blizzcon.

    Another part of Draenor was never mentioned in lore. I don't like that kind of tricks...

    Christ sake. Instead of exploring the interesting lore that has been developing for years, we gotta go back in time and not learn anything new about the story lines we were actually immersed in? And back to Outland when we could be exploring completely new worlds. Seems uninspired, hope to god it's not the real deal.

    Neither was the Mogu or the Sha. Heck neither was Garrosh until much later. They need develop lore as they go along.

    Or maybe Turalyon will play the role that Tiron did in wrath. Alleria & Turalyon have been thrown around a lot from references to them in BC when everyone was pissed that all the old heroes were back except them to the tool tip later added saying "No one has heard from Alleria & Turalyon in quite some time" or something like that.

    Personally I think/hope that they'll be here to aid us rather than be a bad guy. Turalyon is too much of a Bolvar type figure that if they make him bad/kill him off that people will throw a fit over that.

    As far as the whole time travel thing it seems more likely to be same time line just possibly Draenor being a stepping stone to the Burning Legion without them having to come to Azeroth. Really the Burning Legion has been built up so much by the whole Wrathion quest line that if it doesn't have a direct tie in it's going to be a horrible plot turn. It'd be like Blizzard writing a book about the history of Azeroth and then finishing with a narration of two unicorn's talking about what they want to have for dinner.

    OBVIOUSLY CREDIBLE.....

    Every year before Blizzcon, Boub and mmo-champion find a trademark.
    Every year before Blizzcon, Boub and mmo-champion get their inside blizzard source to leak info about the expansion and they post it 24-48 hours before Blizzcon and end up being usually 65-80% correct in the information (thanks Path of the Ttians, dance studio for crushing that percentage)

    As long as Alleria and Turalyon are involved I dont give a shit If I go back to Hellfire Penninsula for 90-92

    Read between the lines please.
    So I'm wrong for being dubious that this pops up the days after some 1 post guy "leaks" it? And naming Blizzard employees as sources aren't allowed anywhere on here, unless you have physical proof and their consent that they are the source.

    Same. This seems terrible, and I wasn't even negative about Mists of Pandaria when the trademark was found. Merely skeptical at first and accepting later on. However, the more I look at the name here, the more I dislike it. And if the previous forum thread on it and its features was right, then I utterly despise it.


    I have nothing against a Burning Legion expansion, but a Time Travel expansion focused on doing trivial shit that won't matter in the end, in Outland, where we've been before?


    Much rather have Argus or Xoroth, or any other new interesting planet.

    I'm sorry, but it was registered a month ago. And anonymously so. If somebody was trying to troll they would have registered it under Blizzard's contact info.

    But the fact is that every single Blizzard IP has an unused url registered, presumably to prevent very convincing "beta key" phishing scams.

    So heres my question.

    Awhile back someone posted about the Wardens on the Timeless isle, keeping in Theme with this new found trademark are we looking at Time Warden as the Next Class?

    COME ON BLIZZARD! You can do a better name than this crap =/

    AHAHHAHAHAHA that guy was right! Wow. Okay. Wow.

    Even if the info regarding the trademark is real, why are we assuming it's the next expac? Isn't there a decent chance it could be a something more along the lines of Hearthstone, maybe even a small RTS designed for tablets/phones?

    It seems plausible, considering that the three time warden guys standing there almost suggest 3 specs, one of whom describes themselves perfectly as a healer, the other as a tank.

    Yeah feeling kind of the same way. Cool name though. But time travel as a main theme...lame-o.

    Argus is dead cuz the Burning Legion destroit it, thats why the Draenei had to flee from there.
    And u all should consider that world like Argus etc. are other planets, u cant just go there with magic, u have to know WHERE it is and only the ones who come from there know how to go there... Argus would be an option but in the present it is destroit and some kind of sub-base of the Burning Legion i think.
    Sargeras can go everywhere cuz he is a TITAN before he turned against Aman'thul & co. And Kil'Jaeden as his right hand... it would make sense if he knows how this works.
    Xoroth... we know how 2 summon something from there but we dont know who this world exactly is.... ^^ without the Dark Portal we wouldnt know what Draenor is :>
