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.

    There was a rumor a 9 months ago about this here reddit /r/wow/comments/16p2ud/taken_with_a_pound_of_salt_of_course_but_some/

    A new ‘continent’ of Outland, twice the size of the Burning Crusade environments. A ‘Nagrand’-esque zone is guaranteed.

    -A new neutral race. One we haven’t encountered before.

    -2 new companion pet types

    -A demonic invasion event to herald the new expansion

    -Changes to the Burning Crusade content to reflect Cataclysm and subsequent events

    -A new mechanic where you can downscale your level to that of a friend/zone, whilst still collecting rep/gold/xp rewards.

    -Several new battlegrounds including a naval battle

    If we do go in the past, I'm kind of excited from reading Rise of the Horde.

    I'd love to see Black Temple and Shattrath back into their original states as a Draenei temple and hidden majestic city. I have to wonder if Velen is a main character if he'll go back with us and we'll see two Velen's or we'll interact with past Velen instead.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we leveled a full 10 to bring us to level 100 in this expansion. Can't wait to find out next week!

    When we go back to the past - does that mean we will retcon or does that mean we will play stuff where we already know the outcome (like all the cavern of times raids)?

    It could be a story based retcon where we change the future in some way.

    Make it so the Horde...

    ..... never existed....

    All ya'll have to remember. Outland was only a PIECE of Draenor. Just because the title has Draenor in it does not mean we are going to Outland. They are probably going to create a whole new chunk of Draenor for us to play on.

    Through Wrathions texts, we already know that the Legion will be the topic of the Xpac (those hints during the legendary quest line)

    BUT all the time I was praying for blizzard to send us to Argus. And at the end we would kick Sargeras' butt...!!!
    Warlords of Dreanor hum?....

    Says right on there 90-100, so pretty sure bet we'll be going to at least 100.

    It's probably not a retcon, but an odd twist on the "future" lore. So, while we technically "go to the past" we're still going forward with the story along a different path.

    Assuming it is in fact a time travel ordeal. The characters (ours and the major influential figures) needed to go through the experiences of the timeline they are currently on (defeating Garrosh and meeting the Pandaren), because these events influence the decisions needed to be made on the TRUE timeline (the one the infinite dragon flight were trying to protect, or nozzy worked to protect realizing we would have to go there eventually).

    Could be that this timeline our characters were in was some sort of chaotic nightmare brought about by the old gods, and Garrosh found this out, so something brought him to flee to this "past" with us in tail.
