I'm going to go with the popular notion that the next expansion will focus on the Great Sea... Kazan, Queen Azshara, naga, goblins, murlocs, Gilneas, Kul Tiras, Tel Abim, pirates, all that.Although those settings and themes don't have one single character that is quite as popular as Arthas, I think that the tropical and/or oceanic settings are a good natural next step for the game, and will be well received, especially if the expansion also includes something on the order of a new class(es) or races, which I would imagine is highly likely. So, yes, Blizzard can and probably will repeat the success of Wrath.

I'd rather see the Emerald Dream than the Great Sea. And how long can Blizzard leave those portals there without them taking you someplace?

Ya cause Druid nightmares are worthy of a whole xpac.

If the next expansion is a Maelstrom/High Seas expansion, Blizzard will definitely have to up its game as far as weaving an engrossing story that doesn't rely heavily on established characters. It'll be their biggest test so far in creating new lore within WoW.As far as the Emerald Dream goes, the previous replier should spend some time on Wowikki. Its called Emerald "Dream" but that doesn't mean it its just someone's nightmare. Its how Azeroth would have been had no sentient race interfered - so for example, no destroying of the moonwell which sundered the continent into Northrend, Eastern Kalimdor, and Azeroth. I think that there is a lot there to work with.
