They do.Emerald Dream is likely next. Right before they showed the MoP reveal trailer at Blizzcon 2011, some dude clearly screamed out "EMERALD DREAM EXPANSION!" during a quiet moment.Metzen looked up, and calmly replied to the gentleman in question, "All in good time, my friend. All in good time." There's a video of it on YouTube.The thing that sits in the back of my mind and bugs me is, they have probably saved Emerald Dream for last, given the depth and size that that expansion would require.The Nightmare is sealed in the Rift of Aln (which is likely The Maelstrom in the mortal realm), but it is not defeated. Since the Emerald Dream is the entire world of Azeroth, carbon-copied right down to mountain ranges, etc, as it would have been had mortals never came, and thus no sundering, logically the expansion would be the collective sizes of Burning Crusade, Lich King and Pandaria put together.That type of expansion would not be suited for a 1st expansion, a 2nd or even a 3rd. An expansion of that size, with story material of that importance, would likely be better suited to WoW's curtain call.I know, I know, Sargeras would be the final boss in the final expansion, but maybe Blizzard's got a trick up their sleeves to tie it all together somehow? I'm not saying it's true, I'm just saying that that thought bugs me..... maybe we've never gotten it because at some point prior to vanilla launch, they decided that ED would be better as The End?
