Glineas/Greymane?Timbermaw Hold?Grim Batol?Any of the above would make me a happy camper. These places have been around since WoW's launch and have either had little, or nothing, pointing towards whats going on behind those giant locked and sealed doors.

Grim Batol has always been rumoured to be a future raid (it currently is the probable locale of Deathwing) but one that they'll revisit when dealing with the Emerald Dream (because he's a prime canidate for the source of the Nightmare) whatever's behind the door at Timbermaw could also be related to the Emerald Dream. (in fact, most anything in the old world could have this relationship, and could lead to dungeons where your zipping between ED and OW so as to choose your bossesGreymane they said they forgot about, but for it to be acurate geographically, it would be the size of a zone. I think they're saving it for if/when they add worgen as a race.

I don't understand why people keep bringing up Gilneas. It has always been one of the most powerful nations of all. Reducing it to nothing more than a dungeon, or having it be taken over by little worgen, is equivelant to Hogger taking over Stormwind and Mankrik's wife conquering Orgrimmar.

@ Macgayver,I bring it up because its there. It was the largest human nation in all of Azeroth. Where did it go? What happened to it? There are too many unanswered questions.And who is to say that the entire region has to be an instance? I say open the gates, let people explore, and keep the main city itself an instance - IE, Stratholme - while leaving the rest of the area gradually going from lowly level 13 worgen to high enough level worgen to topple the largest human nation ever.

I have to go with Macgayver here. Why the hell does everyone think Gilneas is populated by worgen? What? Because there are some on this side of their GIGANTIC FRAKKING WALL?The one no-one gets past.

Classic trashy horror movie plot, Some rebellious Gilneas teens want to know what all the fuss is about and go for a little camping trip to the gilneas wall. finding a group of survivours camped on the other side, being unable to open the gates, being just a small bunch of rebellious teens and all they instead begin passing stuff through the gates, snacks, Gilneas Pale Ale etc etc, much drunken hilarity ensues, even though someof the survivours do look kinda shifty as its gets dark... then horrors of Horrors, One gets bit on the hand passing a drink through the gates, they all run back to their town, but dont tell anyone because they dont want to get told off...Cue Worgen invasion.

The worgen have to be summoned to Azeroth, so it's possible that Gilneas is populated by worgen now, but I'd like to bring up a few things that make me think this isn't so: -Gilneas is behind a giant freaking wall -No implication is ever given that the worgen are anywhere outside silverpine/ night-elf zones, and now Northrend via Arugal -There IS mention of the naga surfacing and setting up a base near Gilneas. Being isolated between the Graymane Wall and the ocean, I think the naga would take full advantage of that.As for instances, the Karazhan crypt would be sweet.

Are you talking about the Timbermaw Hold in Azhara?I don't think that is a instance.....instead I think they intened that to link up with the tunnle and have it spread across all 3 zones. (there is a sealed part of the tunnel in the Main room)but they scrapped the idea.....Not official. but thats what i think
