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.

    Because the only reason I went and found all that corroborating info for Warlords of Draenor was because of the post where the guy said it was the next xpac.

    And Warlords of Draenor is just not a title you can pull out of your buttocks. So if the title is true, then probably the rest of what he said is true.

    from original leak

    "10.30 update

    When the theory is in mess, Anduin Wrynn regrets his choice, while Wrathion faces his glory."

    Anduin uses the powers of the Timeless Isle with/without celestials and bronze dragonflight to "create" a parallel timeline with Draenor intact, or make a portal to the past before Draenor's destruction and sends Garrosh there to meet his father so Grom can bitchslap him (in the vision of time we get, Anduin actually visits Garrosh to offer him this). Wrathion sabotages the whole project because of his own legion-fighting agenda. you heard it here first

    It is for their Heroes of the Storm game. People have that trademark elsewhere and Blizz has to rename it. Maybe they finally decided to have a different name where needed and not run into the loop of trying to find a name not taken globally....

    Yes but Garrosh was much more logical... I mean, Grom could have son, right?
    Also Pandaria, even if made in such lame way(continent larger than Northred - no one ever heard of it untill now) WAS INDEED mentioned in lore, so whatever lived here was up to develop

    Second half of Draenor WAS NEVER MENTIONED! It Draenor / Outland was always described as we new it today...

    Garrosh is Grom's son.

    That Class 9 bugs me to no end. Especially when it is a direct match to Heroes of the Storm.

    So WoW meets Chrono Trigger. That could have some potential if executed properly, besides Ghostcrawler did recently mention Lucca From CT as a possible inspiration for a tinket-type class, maybe an hint?

    Blizzcon sure became a bit more interesting.

    Ok, got it. (I've been skipping the "next expac" threads after tDB hoax. Paid attention to this one because it was on the front page.) Thanks for the clarification!

    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
    Tru dat bro!

    Yeah and you honestly think the same could be applied to Draenor? Where do you think all the water from the planet went? Into the Nether or in my jokingly fashion. Kil'jaeden's personal Nether Toilet! It's not a shocker.

    You're clearly not using the word "Could" properly.
