One question at Blizzcon that is always asked is if we will ever get an Emerald Dream or an Emerald Nightmare expansion. And they have finally answered with simply "It's not a question of if, but when". They said the problem with putting it in right now is that they need to find the correct way of adding it. So possible confirmation of a future expansion? Or the next expansion after Cataclysm?
Emerald Dream/Nightmare possibly confirmed at Blizzcon?
" WoW kinda needs to be completely overhauled in my opinion, the combat needs to be faster :/ "Unfortunately for such a massive MMO with a huge fanbase behind it; there isn't much room for change without alienating millions of subscribers. MMOs traditionally have been very slow pace, given their grindfest combat and whatnot. Of course, it isn't to say that Blizzard doesn't try to make tweaks to the mechanics. They just like to add small increments of it so its not a huge change.
I still doubt that combat pace will increase however. You might as well look elsewhere for that such as Guild Wars 2.
" It kinda has always been confirmed, the Emerald Dream is just like Northrend. It was inevitable to become an expansion someday in the future. "That's kinda how I felt. The Emerald Dream setting may also be an opening to create a new Hero Class, like something from the Night Elves in Warcraft III. Seems like they could alternate new races and new class for each expansion, but doing either must be a complete pain at this point, especially the latter.
