-- The expansion III team actually started concept work over a year ago and has been working on early zone art and story details for a few months.-- Expansion III includes the Maelstrom and Grim Batol and BWL-II courtesy of Deathwing.-- Emerald Dream is not getting its own expansion but may be a transitional piece to Expansion IV where the Nightmare will be elucidated as an exta-planar entity.-- The next hero class will be a healer but it may not be Arch-druid. There won't be new playable races until Exp IV.-- There are 2 content patches left for WLK - Icecrown circa August/Sept and Uldum for Winter 2009/2010.-- Expansion IV involves the 2nd Portal in Nagrand firing up-- Expansion V is the last one currently planned and involves the pursuit of Sargeras-- Summer 2010 is good estimate for Maelstrom.

Nice post, but Icecrown is definitely patch 3.3. I hope the rest of this speculation is true, though.

Yeah. Icecrown is 3.3, and although Blizzard stated before that they want to do Uldum, I believe the last thing I read was that there are no gaurentees. Patch 3.2 is currently an unspecified raid. Could be Uldum. Might not be.And I know I'm not the only one who doesn't want an "Archdruid" hero class. The name itself indicated a "superior" druid. Now, if Blizzard wants to make a healer hero class that just happens to be nature based and has another name, I could deal with that. (Depending on how it was done, I might not be IMPRESSED with a healer druid clone, but I'd deal with it.) I just think there are far better possibilities.
