First off let me finish jizzing.........Im willing to bet my left foot its Warcraft related (noticed i didnt say world of warcraft). All i ask is blizzard just acknowledge the existence of pandaren so we can all stop raging back and forth about if they do or not. I dont think a whole expansion could be built around this, but i can see a Cata patch about it. Lore says Pandaren hid themselves away from the rest of the world. Mists of Pandaria could mean lifting the mists or something? Book likely but its just as good.
Given the fact that Blizzard has stated that they want to release expansions faster - I wouldn't be surprised if this Mists of Pandaria (should it be real, which I'm still undecided about) is an expansion of lesser magnitude than the previous three. Either that or watered-down, half assed material - and I'm hoping Blizzard's pride prevents them from giving us that.Should this turn out to be real, I'd really like seeing the Pandaren (and I have no ideas on how to actually tie it to the lore, but I suppose they'd manage) as a race playable by both factions. Since if we're getting Pandaren, despite everything, the faction that didn't get the race would no doubt feel slighted, and rightly so.Personally I'll be eagerly waiting for Blizzcon, where they'll no doubt announce what the hell this might be. If it's an expansion...It will be glorious.To be fair though, if they're going as far as adding the Pandaren as a playable race, I find it likely that we'll either have the Brewmaster or the Monk as a playable Hero class. Now that is something I'm not entirely comfortable with. Allright I'm getting ahead of myself. Sorry.

I still doubt we'd see them on both sides; they'll probably end up as an non-playable faction just to keep them from screwing up the PVP aspect.
This would take Promise of the Pandaren to a whole new level !
Titan is its own IP, Its a WoW Xpac jesus christ people.
Hmmm I'm just not sure how will this fit into the Warcraft universe without being so much in humour haha I won't mind it though!
I would, personally, love it if they created the Pandaren as an initially neutral playable race, who could then choose sides based on how the player controls their toon. I'm sure it is not everybodys cup of tea, but it would add quite a bit of freshness to the game for me :)
I am starting to think that maybe it'll be some Facebook or mobile game. It would be so weird as an expansion. I guess we'll see.
The more I think about it, I could maybe see it as being a major content patch along the lines of the Quel'Danas/Sunwell patch which also introduced an entire island along with a new raid/dungeon/daily hub. It could also be used to add lore which would play into the next expansion. The only question I would have is whether or not Bliz bothered to trademark any of the other content patch names long before they actually were released. If not, I don't see them bothering to break the precedent for this one.
Well, It looks like a lot of comments on here are about "There is no end of the world aspect", But think about it. I have seen a lot of Kung'fu movies.... Kung'fu panda LAWL. Anyway, there are a lot of possibilities. There could be a big enemy locked in a Pandaren prison that gets out. This could be an old god or a demon or a dragon etc. Since we have never been to Pandaria... we have no clue how big it is, where it is, and how much content there could be. I don't know much about trademarks, But I don't think they trademark patches and the it says on there alot about a GAME not a book or the TCG like "Computer software that may be sent out with a online network" or something like that.... that really doesn't sound like a book to me. I actually think it would be cool to see pandaria. cause if you look it up on wow wiki there is A LOT of potential and very little place to mess up on lore.
Just throwing this out as I haven't seen this idea yet, but perhaps it a late cataclysm content patch featuring a daily quest hub on an entirely new patch of land, similar to the Isle of Kael'Thalas (if I'm remembering the name correctly) at the end of The Burning Crusade content. , involving pandaria and the pandara and the final Raid Tier of Cataclysm. All we can do is speculate though.
