Ten World Of Warcraft Expansion Ideas

Ten World of Warcraft Expansion Ideas

Less than a week before the upcoming announcement of World of Warcraft's sixth expansion, everyone's trying to figure out what its theme will be. Something related to the movie? Pirates and naval battle? The Burning Legion's invasion of Azeroth? More orcs?

Whatever it is, there's still plenty of untapped potential in WoW's lore and despite the drop in subscriber numbers it's still the most popular MMO out there. EverQuest has 21 — smaller — expansions, just for comparison, so most likely WoW will have a few more too in the coming years. Bellular compiled a list of ten possible future ideas featuring Titans, Old Gods, The Burning Legion, The Scourge and a lot more. They're all really cool:

Give me all of these:

  1. The Other Side of Azeroth

  2. The South Seas

  3. The Emerald Dream

  4. Invasion of Argus

  5. Xoroth

  6. Return of the Titans

  7. A New Scourge

  8. The Great Dark

  9. Nerubians & Qiraj

  10. The Legion Invades

I'd personally love to see a South Seas theme with pirates, naga and Zandalari trolls, but after Mists of Pandaria's The Siege of Orgrimmar patch and Warlords of Draenor, anything without orcs and spikes would be just fine.

    The new expansion is called Heroes Of The Storm. New race called Terrans, have invaded Azeroth and threaten life as we know it

    Murlocs, I'd play the crap out of a Murloc race.

    Didn't it already leak that it's eye of aszahra?

    New expansion will be a time reset to coincide with the movie.
    New features include:
    - Facebook integration which will allow you to manage your garrison directly from your browser
    - Transmog wardrobe so you can choose your outfit before battle
    - To coincide with transmog wardrobe, mobs no longer drop loot and instead drop tokens which directly increase your item level
    - You now have a big neon sign above your head displaying your item level.
    - Instead of fixing boring/broken specs you can play a brand new class
    - 2 major content patches within the expansions 12 month life-cycle
    - at least 1 of the major content patches will be major
    - Brand new neutral capital city (not a promise)
    - Dungeons will be tuned so that no communication is necessary
    - Brand new raid tier - Spectator mode - with heroic equivalent item level tokens
    and many more features if we get around to it.

      Some Blizzard employees must be looking at this comment wondering who among them leaked the info.

      lmfao!
      item level is where it at yo, none of this actual skill needed to play your class!

    I think you're dreaming a bit big there - dungeons, a raid AND Facebook integration? Maybe one dungeon, that Facebook support is obviously too important to cut.
    Edit: was supposed to be a reply...

    I both agree and disagree with this. I agree that Orcs or anything Orc based is a death sentence for the game, but a South Seas based (or anything sea based) would be the most boring idea on the planet. Vashj'ir was a TERRIBLE experiment. So slow, even with mount, and annoying that I'm so glad it's an optional leveling experience with alts.

    Having a collection of smaller islands would be an interesting idea. You could use one as a base, kind of like garrisons now. You could have a ship and freely roam. Pirate theme would be interesting, maybe a new race or class as well.

    few things for certain: It's gonna have more facebook games, subs will rise first few months then drop harder than they've dropped before AND the lore is going to get molested to the point that they might as well just release WoW2 and be done with it.
