Introduction

After being imprisoned for year thousands within the Twisting Nether by his fellow Titan brethren of the Pantheon, Sargeras now seeks to set himself free and complete his only task: lay the Great Dark under his control. Despite being greatly weakened, Sargeras has managed to gather enough strength over the years to make for his escape. Using his mind control powers, he forces his nephew Golganneth into lowering the power of the chains which he had been held by for almost an eternity. During his escape he nearly kills his nephew and shatters the Shargahn so as to diminish his powers. Not willing to be set-back once again, Sargeras also invades the throne room of the holy chamber and destroys the remaining Titans of light's major power source: The "Globe of Worlds". Leaving his brethren in a weakened state, the Destroyer of Worlds takes the first step toward total chaos and calls upon all the forces of the Burning Legion and revives old, fallen members such as Mannoroth, Archimonde and Kil'jaeden. With the full strength of the Legion back, Sargeras now watches as they invade Azeroth; the last planet in the Great Dark of which the Legion is not yet in control of. Only waiting for his powers to grow back so that he can break his bonds to the Twisting Nether and step into the mortal realm to end it personally, he now watches as the first steps is taken towards Azeroth's final moment of life.

Despite being weakened, the Titan; Aman'thul seeks out a hero of strength on Azeroth, one which he tells to unite the Alliance and the Horde, to gather new factions that will fight together and bring the Legion to its end. Reaching out with success, the prophet Medivh return's after mysteriously disappearing when the Legion lost the Third War. Having heard the call of the High Father, the prophet now seeks out to gather new adventurers of strength that will stand as a line between the Horde and the Alliance in this war. Still trying to help the world as they may, the Titans keep using what powers they have left to grant back the power to old heroes, including the Awakening of the Aspects.

As time goes and Sargeras enjoys the scenery of the prophets work to unite new factions and make the Alliance and the Horde side in these dark tides, he makes his second move: Argus, once the old home planet of the Draenei now works as the Legions major planet of command, to set the fear into the citizen of Azeroth, the Destroyer of Worlds moves the entire planet itself through space and destroys half of it in the process. Placing it over the skies of Azeroth for all mortal eyes to see it's now locked for a full scale battle as the Legion invades Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend and Outland and the Heroes of Azeroth charges upon Argus.

With war ongoing on each planet, the brave Heroes of Azeroth now fight against not only the Legion but time itself as if they can’t claim victory soon enough; Sargeras will step into their realm and undo everything himself. No longer needing to fear for his brethren to stop him again, the Destroyer waits and watches till the moment of his release finally comes.

Stationing their ships outside Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Shattrath City and Dalaran: Adventurers that has reached level 88 can use these to venture to Argus and join the battle in the lands that has been re-taken and the lands that not yet have been.

New level 90 - 100 zones

  • Neutral Flatland Highlands: Level 88-90. Located in central/south-eastern Argus, these green grasslands with its majestic hills and valleys have already been mostly ridden of the Legion's forces and are being renewed and works as the united nations major land of operation on Argus with new cities already raised and the landing field for the incoming ships of reinforcements from Azeroth.
  • Neutral Swamp of Misery: Level 90-92. Just north-east of Flatland Highlands; this swamp of its moist climate is also mostly ridden of the Legion's members but serves as the home land for The Command A united force of old enemies of both the Horde and the Alliance that sided with the Legion in order to save them self from death and aid the Legion in taking control over the Great Dark.

  • Neutral The Shroud-Spire: Level 93-95. Located north-west of Rek'hilan. These lands is where the ongoing battle to force back the Legion goes as well with that some members of the Alliance and Horde has opened war against one and other to keep control of a place called The Floating Temple. Additionally old neutral factions have moved this far into the lands and made new home basses, among these are: The Sha'tar, Knights of the Ebon Blade, Wyrmrest Accord, Argent Crusade and the Kirin Tor.
  • Neutral Legion Lands: East: Level 95-97. Placed of-coast to the west of The Shroud-Spire; these lands are still fully controlled by the Legion and the Alliance has barely started their charge upon these lands, being nothing but a husk of brunt ground and destroyed environments, the only thing of value in these lands is to drive the Demons back and get to the "Exodar's Last Stand".
  • Neutral Legion Lands: West: Level 97-99. Just west of the eastern Legion lands lies this nearby decollate area, having almost all forces focused within the eastern lands, the faction of the Neutrals along with some members of the Alliance and the Horde has made their way in and fights the Legion from the back, deep within the lands also lies The Demon Gate The structure that hold a back-way into the Twisting Nether which even mortals can step trough.

Just of-coast to the north of this isle to lies an island shrouded within the fog called Skeleton Isle.
  • Neutral Sargeria: Level 100. An isle located in the eye of Argus itself, this small island holds the Gate of the Destroyer which is the doorway Sargeras must use in order to leave the Twisting nether. Leading into the part of the nether called Toombs of Nightmare: this is where Sargeras currently spends his time watching the ongoing battle until the time and power is right for him to make his escape.

New Starting zones

After escaping the Timbermaw Hold which is destroyed, the Furbolg's seeks out the Alliance and settles themself within Darnassus

Dungeons and Raids

Dungeons

(To be noted is that these plans have been around for years and I got a tad MANNY Dungeons and (MAJORLY) Raid's planed, yet later I will show how many PATCHES I got in mind so it might make up for it. There will be almost as many raids and Dungeons during "End-Game" but this is majorly to keep the challenge alive.)

As patches is released through this expansion, each old raid and heroic dungeon in kicked up in difficulty to keep things at a hard level.

These dungeons are out during the game release. Each one possible to do in Heroic mode to.

The following Dungeons are added after later patches. (Mostly raid's is only added with patches, the Dungeons above are about 80% of all dungeons that will appear in the game.)

Raids

Fall of the Pantheon comes with four starter dungeons and adds one-two new raids per patch, as mentioned earlier; each old raid and Heroic is kicked up in difficulty per patch but not surpassing the new content.

Start game raids:

Other Changes

Nations and new Factions

A bunch of new Factions is introduced in this expansion, most of them being factions that gets an promotion from their previous state or which sides with the united nations to fight back the burning Legion. (To tell at the beginning, any sentence called "united nations" which most likely will be and that have already been mentioned is not an official faction but the short sentence for the Alliance, Horde and The Neutrals in one word.)

New neutral factions

New factions for Players

PvP

This expansion includes not only new Battlegrounds and Arena maps but also the old Battlegrounds have gone through a revamp the old ones, returning them to how they (almost) was during their first launch.

  • Isle of Aman'thul. A island floating with its own chip of environment to the south of Argus, there is believed to be a Titan relic on it which the Alliance and Horde wants in a hope to use it against the Legion. The battle is split into ten separate pieces, each piece being affected in some "otherworldly" way and the goal is to hold as many pieces for as long time as possible, the Isle will defend itself in time and suddenly destroy certain parts and continuous to do this till only the center of the isle remains, leaving the Alliance and Horde members to battle each other until the relic descends and there is a race to the finish.
  • Chip of Madness. It's discovered heavy amounts of resources in different materials and minerals on the backside of the mountain on Sargeria which holds the gate into the Toombs of Nightmare. Seeking to claim these material's for them self’s, the Alliance and Horde enters a vast battle where the goal is to maintain control of oil platforms, mines and woodland machine units until enough resources is gathered to open Siege Workshops that allows the use of heavy machine units to fight one and other and dig into what the mountain got to offer of minerals, the battle is won by the faction that in the end has the highest score divided on resources and the amount of slain members of the opposing faction.
  • Throne of the Legion. A unknown force pulls Adventurers into a square shaped box within the Twisting Nether. The Demons surrounding have pulled them inside to watch the slaughter and it's locked for a scale battle between Alliance and Horde members where they have limited time to gain the most kills. The cube they are locked within will tricks at times and remove groundings, level up some points and start moving parts of the floor around. Once the timer reaches 0 the victory goes to the faction with the most kills.
  • The Floating Temple. The new outdoor battle ground that takes split purpose between Air combat and land combat. Starting on the backs of Hippogryphs and Wyverns: The Alliance and Horde members must joust each other down as other members of the group attempts to take control of the 10 beacons surrounding the main Temple which is protected. When once faction gains control on 75% of the remaining beacons or the major Temple, the battle is won.

New Arena maps

  • Chambers of the Aspects. Is five new Arena maps which change's looks randomly per battle. Having different ways to work and behave pending on what aspect that is taken into use per battle.
  • The Coliseum floor. The Coliseum stationed on Sargeria will in time become a plain flat arena floor without any kinds of obstacles to players upon engaging in Arena fight.

(I'm still on the planning stage about more Battlegrounds and Arena maps, if I figure something else up I will add it.)

(Example: Say your character aren’t Hit caped, then this stat will apply hit, yet say that the amount of Specialization gained is more than what you need to be hit caped; then the stat will split in two and grant the amount of hit you need and use the remaining amount on increasing another stat which you need)

Eastern Kingdoms

Kalimdor

  • Ashenvale: The entire country is shrouded in flames and most Horde and Night Elf constructs is under siege, the burning legion also fights the elementals which roam the land, seems to be using much forces at guarding Demon Fall Canyon and forces of the Legion is attempting to break through at the Bough Shadow.
  • Azhara: All Naga activity is removed and the Goblin port of Bilgewater Harbor is under attack. The Timbermaw Furbolgs which now has sided as part of The Neutrals have managed to force back the legion at their northern front and have expanded their area.
  • Azuremyst Isle: The Exodar is once again alive and hoovers above the ground where it crash landed, as the legion besieged the entire isle, the guns of the Exodar was used resulting in a total landscape change of the entire isle.
  • The Barrens: The scar which split the land in two upon Deathwings cataclysm has been renewed and the split land has become one again. The Legion got forces scattered around yet the Horde seems to be holding them back.
  • Bloodmyst Isle: Affected the same way as Azuremyst due to how the Draenei responded to the legions invasion.
  • Darkshore: Most of the invading demons is held back by the Night Elf's of Dranassus yet the operation to restore Auberdine has provoked higher demon activity than the remaining of the land.
  • Desolace: The rift that gave life to the land has dose it's job and the entire land of Desolace now got a lush climate unlike before, yet the native Satyr's and Legion forces works to annihilate Alliance and Horde bases as well with ruining the newfound nature.
  • Durotar: Echo Isles have changed remotely as the Darkspear Tribe have kept on constructing and making their home at the isles. The gates at Orgrimmar has been completed and most of Legion invaders has been driven out.

  • Mulgore: Under compete siege by the legion, the land has been charred to the ground and Thunder Bluff is under attack at all times as well.
  • Silithus: With most of the Qiraji empire on the burning legion's side, this already lost land has not changed much with the exception of that demons have ridden out the previous Twilight's Hammer members and are attacking Cenarion Hold.
  • Stonetalon Mountains: Half of the previous Alliance and Horde settlements is lost and the land itself has been destroyed in many ways as it was used as a test zone for a new demo-type of Legion created Fel Reaver.
  • Tanaris: The pathway to Uldum has been ruined and the deserts roam with demons.
  • Teldrassil: Under full scale attack by the Legion.
  • Thousand Needles: The gap that caused the sea to flow in during the Cataclysm was restored by the Legion and the water drained, now serving as a headquarter land for the Legion down on Azeroth, Alliance, Horde and Neutral forces tempt to turn main focus to this zone.
  • Uldum: The Tol'vir has taken back the Lost city and there is not much demon activity to be seen.
  • Un'Goro Crater: Changed into a underwater zone as this is where the Legion dumped the water which once filled thousand needles. And the Fizzle and Pozzik's Speedbarge ended up there somehow due to the Legions decision to move all the water.
  • Winterspring: Most of the land has changed climate and Blue Dragonflight members is aiding the local settlements in holding the Legion back.

Other sub-zones of Azeroth

Outland

  • Hellfire Peninsula: Totally ruined and now seeming more similar to Netherstorm, this land is filled with members of the Burning Legion and each Horde and Alliance base is slowly seeming to lose their hold, the Dark Portal is still held by the united nations while Kazzak sits on Throne of Kil'jaeden and now partway rules over Outland.
  • Zangarmarsh: Half of the zone has been removed due to how Sargeras moved Argus and crashed through this land. The entire Coilfang has been shut down and the Naga activity has been wiped out. Zabra'jin is also removed with this while the Cenarion Refuge and Telredor is holding out.
  • Terokkar Forest: Most of the land is untouched as all incoming legion forces is attempting to enter Shattrath City.
  • Nagrand: Northern parts of the land are removed due to the moving of Argus. Oshu'gun is re-activated and is patrolling the Nagrand skies under control of the legion. Aldor and Scryers members tend to bring down the ship somehow and re-take the land while the Sha'tar keeps most of the legion busy in Shattrath.
  • Blade's Edge Mountains: Not much has been changed due to how the Legion already had prior control yet attacks is launched on several settlements and Kazzak has made his mark by cutting a line through the land.
  • Netherstorm: As the Blood Elf's eventually were driven out the Goblins of Area 52 have taken use of the Mana Forges and have turned the technology: using the forgers to generate a protective barrier around the entire land to hold the invading demons outside.
  • Shadowmoon Valley: Lost majorly to the Legion: Illidan and his new league of Demon Hunters seek to start re-claiming these lands.

Northrend

  • Borean Tundra: Besieged by the Legions demons and most Alliance and Horde settlements is having a rough time yet Coldarra has been sealed off by the Blue Dragonflight for current unknown reasons.

  • Zul'Drak: Under attack from Dragonblight and Grizzly Hills borders: Yet the different representive animal gods are fighting against the Legion.
  • Crystalsong Forest: Removed as a zone as it has been flooded by flames due to a demonstration of what Sargeras can do despite his current bounds to the Twisting Nether.
  • Sholazar Basin: Half of the land changed due to what control the legion has established and two of the four standing pillars have been brought down.
  • The Storm Peaks: The siege of the Legion has left its mark yet, Sons of Hodir and a recovered Thorim have been able to drive out most of the demons.
  • Wintergrasp: Charged by the demons, Battleground goal changed. (Yet still an outdoor faction VS faction Battleground)
  • Icecrown: Full war between the Scourge and Burning Legion, the Alliance Gunship; The Skybreaker and the Horde one; Orgrim's Hammer has both been shot down and the Argent Crusade currently stands unsure of how to enter the current war in this land.
