With Blizzcon coming, assuming they are going to announce, they need to start preparing materials, so the name needs to be registered before any of that work starts.

Seems a tiny bit early to me since we have at least one patch left before the current expansion is played out. Have we ever had a WoW expansion trademark come out in the late-middle of the previous expansion before?

The MoP trademark was taken out at the start of August 2011, with MoP announcement in October 2011, beta launched in March 2012, game release in September 2012. Little over a year between the trademark and the launch. When MoP was trademarked, we were only a couple of months into Firelands.


Huh, well alright then, sounds like the timing works for a WoW expansion.

I have a feeling its a WoW expansion since I can't see how the title relates to the coming events of Diablo that we have heard about.

My thoughts is that there was something trapped within Azeroth, maybe old god related, maybe Burning Legion. Its prison was broken during the Cataclysm since when it has been building strength within the earth.
Definitely will have some BL tie ins for that expansion when we finally get it.
Maybe some more Goblin stuff.
My speculation is we will also see Magni return to the game. Having spent his time one with the earth, he found out about this darkness thats been brewing and stayed so long learning about it so that he could return now to warn and prepare us.

Seems the D3 xpack will be "The Reaper of Souls", so "Dark Below" seems a good bet for WoW...

See the page for reaper of souls and MMO-C's page on that
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

My money on a Naga/Old God oriented expansion.

...or something about the Burning Legion? Wrathion has been talking about that for the whole expansion.

If im not mistaken, I believe "the Dark below" is another name for N'zoth or whatever his name is.
The old god that possessed Deathwing.
The seacreature (and only reason people assume its an underwater expansion) from throne of tides is called "<Fiend of the Dark Below>" and he was created by N'zoth if i remember correctly.
While the Dark Below can mean dark below the surface, down in water where the sun doesnt reach, its also a way to describe caves in the same way.
Theres also some correlation with N'zoth beeing hidden below the maelstrom (i guess even below deepholm now?).
And since MoP was a bit of a distraction from normal Azeroth business, I would be more than stoked if the next expansion went back to azeroth (smth they have confirmed) and dealt with an old god or two.
If the Dark Below in fact is the name for the expansion referensing N'zoth, then the expansion is pretty much like the N'zoth expansion like Wrath was about lich king.
Leading up to the old god somehow beeing the endboss.
Im pumped about it atleast.

Not disagreeing with you really, but technically MoP is set in Azeroth and was all about an old god. ;)

Very exciting news. Either way you swing this The Dark Below theory, it feels we're definitely moving away from oversized angry turnips and giant manic rabbits back to a more Diabloesque world of demons and monsters.

the more i think and read about it, the more and more i am getting excited for it!
i love MoP and its story lines, and all the stuff it brought with it (ok maybe not ALL of it but..) but it would be great to get back to that darker feel of Wrath :D
(i would say BC possibly, but i only played for the last 2 months of BC)

I really hope it's an Old God expansion, being a huge Lovecraft fan and all.

N'zoth could very much be a possibility. He is said to be sleeping in the sunken city of Ny'alotha (obviously R'lyeh) which also has connection to the Emerald Dream/Nightmare. Possible location?

There's also the theory that Azeroth itself is named after/encased by an old god (see Azathoth) which is why Azeroth is so important to the titans. (Edit: found the article! It's a good read.)

I think I'm going to take a stab at the initial plot/story.

As the warriors of Azaroth brought turmoil to Pandaria and freed the Horde from another cycle of dark influence, something boiled underneath the surface of the Maelstrom. Under the command of N'zoth, Queen Azshara has used Deathwing's corpse with remnants of the Well of Eternity to bring her city back to the world. And with it, turmoil begins anew as her naga ravage the coasts of both Kalamdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Horde and Alliance have agreed to put aside recent grudges in order to force the serpent queen to fight on two fronts, but she holds more beneath her power than they realize. Wrathion, in an attempt to prevent the old kingdom from rising, has been captured and sent to the Emerald Dream. He is slowly being twisted as his father once was. The time has come to enter The Dream and end the corruption that has been plaguing it for years. There is no rest for Azaroth's mightiest as they must fight through the ruins, the water, The Dream and The Dark Below.

Edit: included the Well of Eternity.

no we cant, we still have the zandilari on zandilar to deal with..thier island is sinking, but hasnt sunk yet

i personally like Pfife's idea..plus it would bring in the emerald dream/nightmare and would lead us fairly straight into a burning legion expansion being queen azshara was at one point wanting/going to be (or possibly was? i dont remember exaclty) Sargera's consort/bride.

the reactivation of the well of eternity, as well as the cry of queen azshara might be enough to bring sargera's eye back to azeroth, which he has never forgotten.. we are the only planet to survive an attack from the burning legion, so you know he wants to get a second chance at us


this could be the end of wow wrapped up nice and neat, esp given 2 years per expansion.
we could have the dark below, late 2014, so the fall of argus? (someone book mark this page just to see if i am right in 2 years lol) being launched late 2016, and they said project titan was pushed back til 2016 at least...so we could be seeing the last expansion of wow, which would fit with the old rumors of the engine only handling up to level 100 (dark below - 95, fall of argus - 100) and as wow was winding down with us defeating the burning legion on argus and the draenei returning home possibly, project titan would be picking up more and more steam...


one thing we havent talked about is if it is a wow expansion, like we are fairly sure of now, new class? new race? both? neither?

A new race? What is the current version of Kung Fu Panda? Smurfs 2? Despicable Me 2?

So we're going to get blue, goblin / gnome like figures. Or little yellow dudes with stupid voices.

Smurf race will be Poppa - tank, Smurfette - healer, Clumsy - DPS.
Minion race would be Dave - Tank, Phil- healer, Carl - DPS

If we get minions, I'll keep playing. I won't care what the story is, as long as I can send minions to do my bidding with hilarious consequences.

BAH!

Ooh well, I guess I can turn all the ideas I got in the last half an hour into some form of fan fiction. I had the whole expansion mapped out, ending with N'zoth using Azshara (after some form of betrail) to signal the Legion.
