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 love the outland zones as they are. I have no desire that Blizzard spoils all those memories by going "laawl revamp!!11"
    Screen shot the place for memories like I am. I still understand your fears though.

    Yeah ... ppl were extatic about the lore and Deathwing was interesting character.
    He was. People did like him. Don't overproject your interest over others. Cata may not have been great but Deathwing was worthy of a character.

    Key word being "get to see", yes. Just like tourists. If we assume that we don't mess with the time lines, there will be no new lore developments for the next couple of years, and everything will be put on hold while we become tourists in time for two years. Really exciting. Not.

    Or, if we do mess with the time lines, then all bets are off and essentially from then on, there in fact is no lore because every time line exists and everything can be subject to change (retcon) at some future point, and essentially everything WILL change, and blablabla. Lore will be offically 100% LOLore becuase very time line exists.

    I don't know what is worst to be honest, but this is essentially why any sane person who care about lore of story hates time travel.

    TBH I don't think World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor sounds right, but I like that people are speculating. I just hope that, whatever they choose to do in the future, they don't do an excessive Outland revamp like they did with Azeroth and Kalimdor, I really miss the old zones .

    Is this a time travel expansion? There wouldn't be any warlords left on Draenor.

    On Outland or what we see is Outland. But here's a possible idea.


    Who owned Draenor in the timeline


    Think about it. Who pawned off Draenor like it was nothing. Who turned the world against itself. It wasn't the Old Gods.

    For some reason I really think this one isnt fake. If anything, I think the dark below was trade marked to throw everyone off for a little bit. If that's true, well played

    Old Outland will probably still exist during the leveling experience. This time travel can be used to explain the whole leveling experience. They can just come out and tell you that you are moving through time when you go to Outland, and then Northrend. We no longer have to question how come when we go to Northrend its like going back in time.

    Just because it says Draenor in the title doesnt mean it's actually set ON Draenor.... Just means theres some connection to Draenor... like the Burning Legion, and because of their influence over the Orcs at one point and time, they could be considered "Warlords"...

    I like the idea/story that could come from this, but the name is just, not good at all in my opinion.

    Still, I'm kinda disappointed that Dark Below won't be... unless it's a section of the game or a raid... That storyline has so much potential

    Ooh don't you worry. I have 3GB worth of screenshots from my old TBC days.
    But I still love to just hang out in these zones.

    Especially Telredor:


    I gave a fuck... Or at least before they kinda butchered him.
    Deathwing was awesome in the books. In WoW he was... simply not there.
    Idiotic move by Blizzard.

    Lichking was too present and always got his balls kicked (Or rather his underlings). Blizzard got Flak for that. Out of fear of repeating that mistake they made Deathwing almost nonexistent.

    Draenor was the name of the planet that is now Outlands. The Orcs were originally from Draenor, but they never gave it a name--the Draenei (which means Exiled Ones) named the planet after they fled Argus. A return to Draenor basically means an Outlands revamp\expansion. I imagine they will update the pre-existing zones and add new zones via the portals scattered throughout Outlands.

    That wouldn't happen. It would destroy the entire timeline. The Orcs had to be corrupted so they could come to Azeroth, then lose the Second War and Thrall reunify them and lead them to Kalimdor to prevent the Legion from draining all the power from Nordrassil.

    Yeah, pretty much. Before he was in WoW, Deathwing was fucking awesome! I feel bad for Blizzard for how they portrayed him in Cata. You know, as in not at all lol

    And are you saying nobody has heard of Draenor... or.... ?
    Yeah, I do think that there was interesting story behind DW, but Blizz decided that dumb dragon is what they want to go with so ... derp. Draenor ... what's that.
