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.

    I could see this being a book title. But if it's for the next expansion I'm fine with that as well. Maybe it'll be timewalker stuff

    I feel people forget who the warlords of dreanor could be. I might resub after 5 years break if it involve who i hope/think it does.

    I don't see anything in the application about Grom, time-travel, orcs, Horde, Garrosh, etc.

    In fact, I don't see anything about a WOW xpac. A lot a jimmies rustlin' over a very tenuous thread.

    This is going to be FAR more than Outland Cataclysm.

    Blizzard really isn't that stupid, no chance.

    Please, please, please give us Demon Hunters, I don't care about it being called a "hero" class, but starting higher would be nice, even if it just matched DK starting level, but we shall see, even if not and the implement it, I want it.

    Also, pretty sure this xpac will be released earlier than usual, I hope anyway, urgh so much info we need...

    Back to Outland might keep me past Blizzcon... As long as there isn't another Horde warchief as the main character. Two expansions focusing on one side is enough.

    I would be more inclined to believe if it were not for the GoDaddy registration.

    I really hope not. I'd love to fight the legion on distant worlds again, but I've had enough of time travel.

    Heh, and here come the speculations. As always.

    I love the idea of time-travel based expansion, though. Always loved that stuff. I could jump the mainstream wagon and say something pompous like "DAT IS DA CONTENT DAT MAKEZ ME RESUB!!11", but I've not unsubbed ever, so I think I'll just wait for Blizzcon with my fingers crossed, lol.

    • Reforging is changing, soon you will no longer need to keep hold of an item to "own" the transmogrification appearance.
    • The upcoming Blizzcon secret gift is an Elite Tauren Chieftan Hearthstone gift card.
    • The Dark Below has been registered for 'Titan', not World of Warcraft as is the rumor.


    A big thank you for this information goes out to:

    Good job dude.

    It could still be a pretty good hoax either way. The website being registered means nothing... or did any of you see the popular websites wrathofthelichking.com or cataclysm.com or theburningcrusade.com? Nope. Me neither... we can just wait.

    edit: HOLYF*CK SKYE i just had a heart-attack after posting, thank you very much.

    This sounds incredibly likely to me to be honest, as well as being the expansion to bring Demon Hunters.
    There was some soundfile called "Timewalkers" if I remember, plus the whole questline about the timelines and the Bronze Dragonflight, plus the Timeless Isle appearing from no where all of a sudden.
    The fact that it was mentioned that this will feature Time Travel just really really makes me think this is it.

    About the Demon Hunter thing though, Ghostcrawler said he wanted Illidan back in the past (sometime in Cata); considering how Time Travel is said to be featured in this, it is more than likely he could easily make an appearance and bring Demon Hunters to the table. Especially if it'll be about Draenor and the Burning Legion.
