Blizzard plans to announce the sixth expansion pack for World of Warcraft next week. Until they make the reveal, all we can do is speculate.

There are a lot of different ways that Blizzard could go with this next expansion pack. The Warcraft universe is full of places and characters that we still haven't seen in WoW. Here are some ideas that we hope Blizzard will use either for this expansion or the next one.

Why It Would Be Great: The Emerald Dream is a spirit world that druids draw their power from. In that realm, nature is in perfect harmony and unspoiled by mortal races. It sounds like it would be a gorgeous place for players to explore. Furthermore, Blizzard has given players brief glimpses into the Emerald Dream through quests. In these quests, they learned that a dark force called the Nightmare is corrupting the realm. After years of teases about the Emerald Dream, it only makes sense for players to finally travel into its wilderness to stop this mysterious darkness.

Why It Wouldn't Work: The big issue with the Emerald Dream seems to be the story. The Nightmare seems to have been stopped in the novel Stormrage, so Blizzard would either need to retcon that book or figure out some other reason for players to enter the Dream. WoW's prior expansions centered around the Alliance and Horde launching military expeditions to stamp out a threat in far-off lands. This structure allows Blizzard to maintain the Alliance vs. Horde war at the heart of WoW. It's unclear what would make these armies invade a spirit realm, though. What's more, this trip into the Emerald Dream doesn't necessarily advance the larger storyline of the MMO.
