Well, this just cannot be an expansion because last expansion's name is going to be somehow linked with Titans or Sargeras!Though, i love Pandarens and already can imagine this high in mountains castle, made in a chinese style and covered with mists and a neat dragons around it :) Like, a temple!But this one must not be an expansion, i think this will be the latest cataclysm patch, which is going to be a lore linked, but without any dungeon and raid content, but tons of new and awesome quests, and probably vanity stuff?
As stated numerous times before, there's no need to get a trademark on a patch, because it would fall under the umbrella of the expansion's trademark; both Rise of the Zandalari and the Rage of Ragnaros are extensions of the Cataclysm. While they come out months apart, they're technically all the same product. This is either another expansion or another game entirely.
PANDAREN next playable race plz
1. Pandaren ARE canon (Research the lore of "Chen Stormstout").2. The trademark code means that it cannot be a book.3. There are still many continents/zones of azeroth yet to be utilised for an expansion: Padaria, Tel Abim, Undermine, Zandalar, The Mealstrom, Kul Tiras, Broken Isles, Plunder Isle. These areas seem to be well prepared for use since the Cataclysm.4. With every new expansion, Blizzard has trademarked the name right before the Blizzcon announcement. They have stated their goal is to release a new expansion every two years, which means this Blizzcon is where it will be announced. Blizzcon 2011 will be held on October 21st.5. Blizzard seem to alternate between new races and a new class each expansion. The Pandaren offer two obvious choices for a new hero class - the Monk and the Brewmaster.
/devils advocate.All you guys have is a name , 2 mysterious codes used in online products before and a vague description of what the thing is.There's no indication this is for an expansion at all or any other definite information other then what I've outlined above. Until you see Blizzard confirming what this is I don't think we have any place speculating anything at all or getting that worked up over it. For me it's like you've been given a collection of words some movie studio has registered and you've instantly spun it into an exact plot line development , storyline , scene descriptions , screenshots , trailers , script , cast list and whose directing it and are debating wheter it all is a wise choice.Having made that analogy my sincere apologies if I've read this thread wrong. I haven't read every single post on all 12 pages , only done quick glance throughs of pages 9 - 12 and page 1.
There's a lot of incorrect ideas floating around.This title will either be Warcraft 4 or an expansion or maybe some form of game/online transaction. It cannot be anything else. It. Can. Not. Be. Anything. Else.Pandaria is a part of lore, and while an expansion revolving around it seems small, it also potentially opens up all the other islands and other named sea areas. If it is the next expansion, I see Queen Azshara being the big bad guy. I will, however, admit that the title does seem misleading compared to other expansions.
