It is the era of an Old Horde, forged with steel rather than fel blood. A union of great orc clans, the Iron Horde, tramples the planet Draenor beneath terrifying war machines. Azeroth falls next. Worlds uncounted will follow.

 

You must mount a desperate charge on Draenor – savage home of orcs and adopted bastion of stoic draenei – at this pivotal moment. Your allies are legends from across time; your fortress a foothold in an alien land. Lead the armies of one world against another…before the future itself is unmade.

 

 

GAME FEATURES:

 

Explore a Savage World: Explore the hostile world of Draenor, home of the orc and draenei races, as it once existed, and adventure in all-new zones alongside characters central to Warcraft history.

Build Your Garrison: Construct, command, and expand your own customizable stronghold on Draenor, and gather NPC followers to collect resources and embark on missions on your orders.

If that's true, then I'm a bit sad we get no new class. To hell with races, already too much.

But Demon Hunter-ish class would be osum!

Other than that - Outland-isk expansion... many nostalgic players might come back. Myself included (but I already bought pre-paid couple weeks ago, just to try Timeless Isle... and boy oh boy free epics) :D

Demon hunter can't really work because warlocks have all its iconic abilities. No race is a trade off for updated models.

I don't know if anyone noticed this.  In the schedule notes for Blizzcon they have.

 

"World of Warcraft: What's next?"

 

Haha, trying to make fun of Everquest?

If an expansion is announced I feel sure I'll be coming back to WoW: I think I'll be starting a new character though, anyone wanna level together? We'll need to pick a server to play on together.

Yeah, I really meant: When a new expansion is announced, I'll return :) Looks like Templar is returning to WoW this weekend; after a 2 year break, I shall make my triumphant return!

I wonder when will they start beta... anyone remember previous ones? Especially once new x-pac was announced at Blizzcon?

Also, can't wait for Balls beta! And D3 beta! Let's hope this time real beta, not a demo version of beta :D

According to WoWWiki:

 

Announcment/Beta/Release

1) BC - October 28, 2005; October 2006; January 16, 2007

2) WotLK - August 3, 2007 at Blizzcon; July 2008; November 13, 2008

3) Cataclysm - August 21, 2009; June 30, 2010; December 7, 2010

4) MoP - October 21, 2011; March 21, 2012 closed; September 25, 2012

5) WoD (?) - November 8!!

 

It looks like it took them pretty much a year for the first three expansions before they got beta up and running, then for MoP it took exactly 5 months.  Expect beta by April 8 at the latest if you subscribe to the idea that they're shooting for 5 months again. 

 

However, I'm thinking that the timeline for everything in the upcoming expansion has moved up considerably given how fast content has been pushed out since MoP release and the extra crew that has moved over to WoW from our beloved Titan team.

Keep in mind that WoD will be in development for almost 14 months when announced this week (even more since sometimes they work on 2 expansions at the same time briefly). In the past expansions were 8-10 months along when announced. Also the team is much bigger now than previously.

Since it seems that many of us will be returning to WoW shortly. I think we should decide on a server to play on together. I think it would be great fun to play and level together.

 

Any suggestions for a EU (And US) server? I'll play anyway, I'm rolling a new character (Paladin or Priest) anyway.

 

Also, do you guys want to roll Horde or Alliance? If it's Alliance I'll be playing a Gnome Priest, if it's Horde I'll be playing a Blood Elf Priest or Paladin.


OMG NEW EXPANSION TRAILER. OMG OMG OMG

The gnome character models are especially good in my opinion.
