Does blizz have the domains for wowburningcrusade.com and wowwrath(ofthelichking).com ? I've always seen them just use worldofwarcraft.com/expansionname/ for their expansion sites, dunno why they'd change that up unless they did this for the previous expansions as well.

I think you're correct in saying that they've never used those sorts of urls, however, interestengly, godaddy also owns wowburningcrusade.com, so who knows! This is some fun news though, nice detective work 8D I can't wait to hear an announcment at blizzcon!

It's possible they grab those domains so that people with the wrong intentions don't steal the domain.
they had wrathofthelichking.com though it redirects you to worldofwarcraft.com/wrathits entirely probable that if they name the expansion cataclysm, they will use the url wowcataclysm.com. Its similar to how a movie with the name, say, "Writing" will have a URL like www.writingmovie.com to indicate that "writing" is a movie and not a site about writing.

Ah. Well, to be the skeptic, I suppose that even if they were the ones who reserved wowcataclysm.com it doesn't necessarily mean they're making a WoW expansion called Cataclysm. They could just be doing what Lexi said and be reserving the name while it's purpose is still vague so no one abuses it.Though while I do agree that the word Cataclysm in WoW lore is tied to the Maelstrom, the "cataclysm" part of it already happened, so I'm not sure what it would have to do with current events at the Maelstrom other than being its origin. Unless the next expansion is entirely within the Caverns of Time and takes place during the War of the Ancients. Which I doubt. Cataclysm likely refers to something new threatening to tear apart the world, which could be anywhere, not just the Maelstrom. Heck, the Emerald Dream could have an impending Cataclysm. If I understand the whole "World as it would be without mortals" thing, the Emerald Dream is still un-"Sundered". It's really still fairly vague, even if there are minor ties to the Maelstrom.
