World Of Warcraft’s Next Expansion Needs These 6 Things

1 of 7

This is a big week for World of Warcraft fans, such as myself. If you haven’t heard yet, the next expansion will be unveiled at Gamescom 2015; an unprecedented location for an expansion reveal, but a sorely needed one. Warlords of Draenor, though stuffed with fabulous leveling content and some of the most challenging raid bosses yet, has fallen flat over time, and the player base is ready for a new expansion. Fans demonstrate their enthusiasm, predictably, by wild speculation.

I’m not going to pretend I have any idea what’s coming next, though admittedly an Azshara/South Seas expansion seems more likely than ever. Instead, I want to talk about a few things I think WoW sorely needs, regardless of the expansion’s theme. Though I’m sure the next expansion is planned out far beyond my desires, I hope that the developers at Blizzard have seen the same things I’ve seen, and that I’ll be pleasantly surprised this week during the reveal, and in the months to come.
