So there might be an expansion called "Cataclysm of the (Blank Blank)".I'm banking on it introducing the Emerald Dream as a playable area.

Ugh. Whole expansion centered around druid lore. Blech.On the other hand, Cataclysm does lend itself to a LOT of possibilities for WoW, especially if they live up to the word and do something DRASTIC to change the face of Azeroth.

There is not enough going on in the Emerald Dream to do an entire expansion. Besides the Emrald Dream is a view of what Azeroth would be had the cataclysm that caused the Maelstrom never happened, in fact if none of the sentient races had ever arisen. The dream could be a raid. Especially if the Emerald Nightmare is somehow tied to the Naga or the Legion. But there just isn't enough going on inside to warrant an expansion.

@Josin: The whole game is based around what you call "druid lore". Even the events of the original WarCraft game are a direct result of the events in question, thousands of years later. The backstory of the game universe is your so-called "druid lore".

Why "Cataclysm of the (...)"? Why not "(...) of the Cataclysm"?For instance, "Shadow of the Cataclysm"... sounds kinda catchy.

If they trademarked "Cataclysm" then the title would just be "Cataclysm."See: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4007:u0a62s.2.1 (THE BURNING CRUSADE)And: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4007:u0a62s.3.1 (WRATH OF THE LICH KING)This is for: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4007:u0a62s.5.1 (CATACLYSM)If it's a World of Warcraft expansion, it'll just be called World of Warcraft: Cataclsym. If not, then it's a new IP called Cataclysm.
