Well that second one is obvious bullshit.

The first is... interesting. I also am not keen on the idea of Garrosh creating yet another reformed Horde and becoming the big boss. Though it's possible of course that his actions would just be lead in to something else (the summoning of the Legion to Outland by Gul'dan).

But... the whole thing sounds like it'd be a big distraction from the buildup they've been doing in game over the last few years. Like Wrathion predicting the next Legion invasion, and the rise of the Zandalari under the Prophet Zul. This time travel storyline would basically throw out all the recent story in favour of playing with a bunch of characters from the history of Draenor - it's basically complete freedom to ignore established canon.
I don't play WoW any more.

I think the idea that this is the name of the Warcraft movie is much more likely. Throwing the entire storyline of the last 6 years out of the window just seems wrong. It would make a very marketable movie story-line too (Hollywood is a sucker for Jesus redemption stories like Grom Hellscream vs Mannoroth).

Another 3 Fing years of chasing Garrosh and the bad Orcs around, and Anduin goes softey so Varian can kick his ass?.. Uggh.....

A whole expac of Orcs and Ogres?.. Uggh....

I expected no new races or classes, since they need 6 years to do new models, but that much recycling?... Uggh....

If that first one is true, might have to get off this train...

Here's my completely uneducated guess

Full Burning Legion expansion spanning across Azeroth, Outland and a Burning Legion world.
Demon Hunter hero class. Shadow damage based ranger style class with two ranged specs and one melee spec sharing gear with hunters/enhancement shaman.
Their intro story will be as a horde/alliance soldier stationed in Outlands left for dead when the burning legion invade. Taken in by the survivors of Shattrath and trained in the art of demon hunting their class quest will end with them preventing the Legion from opening massive demonic portals into the cities of Azeroth.

Blasted Lands in the EK all but destroyed from the initial invasion, Silithus decimated by demonic invasions in Kalimdor. They'll be the starting zones for Alliance and Horde Players. Only Hellfire Peninsula will be phased for players on the Expansion, fight to the center of the Citadel to open the portal to go to the Burning Legion planet.

Raids:
There will be an Azeroth raid as the Legion strikes a deal with the remnants of the Zandalari trolls to strike back at the Alliance and Horde.
Wrathion and his newly formed legion of Azerothian lifeforms, such as dragons and non-alliance/horde intelligent creatures will be a hostile faction to the players and will be the second raid. He has more success against the Legion than we will have, but he also keeps interfering and attacking us in his arrogance and anger over his MoP plans being defeated. That raid will be split between defeating a Legion force attacking his stronghold and then defeating his forces in the stronghold, he will die but will bestow the victors with great power to defeat the legion.
Last raid will be the Legion ending with defeating a reborn Sargeras.

Somewhere in there Sylvannas will assassinate Vol'jin and take over the Horde.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Demon Hunter being a ranged class that uses ranged weapons would be a strong choice that would make ranged weapons distributed amongst 2 classes instead of one, and I'd be fine with it.

What I think would be... weird... is having a class called Hunter and a class called Demon Hunter...

Am I the only one sick and tired of the trolls in every expansion?

Nope, but it looks like we are getting trolls+orcs+ogres+Garrosh+demons+outlands

Garrosh's wild ride in Outlands... sigh.


The Dark Below sounded so much better...

Trademarked in the EU now as well, something is boiling.

I somewhat doubt it's the movie's title, as they wouldnt have needed to trademark it in first place.

I have one, single wish for this x-pack.

A recurring vilain, someone that we got rid of a loooooong time ago for trucking with demons. Someone whose name still resonates everytime we see the Dark Portal:

Let Gul'dan come back, and *stay* alive like the backstabbing opportunist hiding in the woodworks he is.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I think there's a strong chance that Gul'dan will be back soon, if only because he was chosen to represent Warlocks in Hearthstone.

You know, if they introduced "Dark Ranger" (rather than Demon Hunter) they could add Sylvanas to Hearthstone. ;)
