Next expansion?

Postby Newsom » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:40 am

I think it's time to start speculating! We had a similar thread for MoP back when they registered some domain name and the discussion proved fairly interesting.

From MMO-C:

Could this be the next expansion? Or is it just Diablo 3?

Quoting WoWPedia's tiny stub on it:
The Dark Below is a place inhabited by demons, devils and infernal creatures, from where some sorcerers take their power directly and sometimes have a patron beast to foster their magic.

WoW or D3 expansion? The Dark Below

Postby halabar » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:42 am

So, it's time to play the trademark game again. Blizz has trademarked The Dark Below, following the pattern of previous game software titles.

So, WoW expac or D3 expac?

If WoW, that sure sounds like we are going to Nagatown. Would be interesting to see a "Mines of Moria" type WoW expac, but we already had Deepholm, can't get deeper than that.

I could see some possile themes going with this:
  • Old god expansion
  • Azshara/Nazjatar/deep sea expansion
  • Demons and stuff coming from underneath Azeroth (maybe the Legion found a new portal somewhere?)

Have you noticed Ozumat's title?

Blizzard has also been avoiding questions about what happened to Neptulon in Throne of the Tides for some time. I recently re-watched the 2011 Blizzcon Lore panel and they straight out said they just didn't want to answer a question about it. Hmm?

Nagaland it is, which will contain yet more Burning Legion lead-ins. (And after Nagaland we'll get the Emerald dream with still more burning Legion lead-in.. thinking that when we finally see the Burning Legion again it will be the last expac).

Well, deepholm wasn't so much deep as in a completely different plane of existance.

Now, since we're into the uncharted lore waters with what they've introduced in MOP... could perhaps be an 'underdark'-inspired expansion? Or at least a literally underground one? Perhaps some ancient force (dark trolls? Or something 'new') make a comeback? Explore the basement of Karazhan?

I don't see too much more underwater stuff, much less an entire expansion based on it, after the rage over Vashj's mechanics.

D3 expansion, possibly as well - I'd imagine it may be of a similar theme (moar underground dungeons!), though I have a bit more of a tough time there since that seems to revolve around the demons and angels mucking about.

Could be both.

A "the deep below" wow expansion could be themed after azjara and naga's empire

But it would also be a D3 expansion and be a reference to the inferno and wherever Lea's mom has gone.

Yeah, but remember the stub (which would make it almost sound like an underdark like thing, with a side of elemental plane) comes from the RPG, which Blizz has been more than happy to ignore.

My gut feeling on this says D3 expansion.

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?

Besides Ozmut's title... consider Ra-dens's defeated text

Wait! I am... I am not your enemy. You are powerful, more powerful than he was, even... perhaps you are right. Perhaps there is still hope.
But there is a yawning chasm of darkness beneath you mortals, vast, endless, and all consuming. I do not believe that you can correct this doomed course.
But you have earned the right to try. Farewell.

Sure points to WoW expac...

Yeah, this is why I'm leaning more towards WoW than D3.

So, sofar, we have the title, The Dark Below

For WoW..

Ozumat's title - <Fiend of the Dark Below>
Ra-Den's defeated text, speaking of a yawning chasm of darkness..

For D3..

no idea. where can they go next, and, with the console version coming out so recently, would they really come out with a D3 expansion so soon?

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.
