Prior to Blizzcon, my wildest hope for the expansion was that it would introduce a new faction -- the Pandaren Empire, opposing both the Alliance and the Horde. The Pandaren would be a central race, but it would also include other Asian-themed races -- perhaps ogres themed similarly to Ogri'la, or nomadic Mongolian centaurs. I'd even considered Ethereals as a meddling but possibly allied power, opening Pandaria up to outside influence like Perry's 'black ships' did for Japan.Adding four to six new races and an entire faction's worth of quests at all levels, plus revamping battlegrounds significantly, would be a monumental task, and I admitted it wasn't likely... but darned if it wouldn't have been cool.
