Anyone else get the feeling that the expansion is still a long ways away?
A common guess around the WI bullpen is that it'll come out sometime around Q4/Holidays this year.

Yeah, but having zero raid bosses designed yet makes it seem like there is a lot more to do. You'd think it would be faster considering there are no new race starting zones.

I completely agree!Some of the comments make me think that it is a lot farther away than I thought originally.I'm also guessing Q4. To me as a PvPer, this means that S4 is still 1-3 months away and will last until the Xpac, so a long long time.

I was just thinking the same thing, like maybe not this year.

I wouldn't worry. Most of the raid content comes after the fact anyway, and they've already got Naxx.Just take a moment to think about how many raids were patched in after the initial BC release. Plenty of time.

I kind of have the feeling they're only saying this to throw us off the scent, they must have some idea what each boss' look and feel is going to be.

I was thinking that same thing too. But it really could be a ploy to throw off Mythic with Warhammer Online. Also, Blizzard has learned it is better to give estimates that are *way* out there than to disappoint with not meeting a deadline.

That's really not an exceptional amount of work in the long run.Kind of like designing a house - you don't need to know which couch goes where to know which room's the living room and what size/color couch you'll want there.

Wow, I failed hard on that last paragraph....Kind of like designing a house - you don't need to know which couch goes where (or what size/color it will be) to know which room's the living room.
