Blizzard May Have Leaked the Location of World of Warcraft’s Next Expansion

Blizzcon is just around the corner, so we may hear about World of Warcraft’s next expansion soon, in the meantime there may be clues hiding in plain sight.

With Patch 7.3, players will be able to visit Argus. Many are speculating this could be the last patch for World of Warcraft: Legion. The community believes that we will be sent to Kul Tiras to fight the Old Gods. There is a post on Wowhead which shows the new tier armor for Kul Tiras. This is the first time Kul Tiras has been mentioned since Cataclysm, as mentioned by Perculia, the author of the post on Wowhead.

When you zoom in on the armor, you see a map of what is assumed to be Kul Tiras. When you compare it to the map of Kul Tiras that is present in the World of Warcraft original game manual, it’s easy to see the similarities. During the course of Legion, players have mentioned the Void Lords would be next in line. This would make sense, seeing as the Void Lords created the Old Gods. Kul Tiras is a naval superpower led by Lord Admiral Proudmoore, who also happens to be Jaina Proudmoore’s father. If you piece together the current lore, and the rumors we have heard of so far, there is some sense made of all these rumors. It is very possible that the truth lies in the rumors, somewhere.

At this point, if the next expansion does not feature Kul Tiras, Queen Azshara, and the Old Gods or even just one of them, it will catch everyone off guard. Blizzard has revealed little pieces of the next expansion in line before in the past, such as Cataclysm’s classes and new races, way before they were even announced officially. When it was rumored to have the Rise of the Naga Empire expansion as the next one, they even mentioned Kul Tiras as one of the leveling zones.
