Here are some ideas for future expansions. They combine others' ideas in a way that suits my own, and do not represent official plans of Blizzard Entertainment.
This page is not yet completed, and will be expanded soon.
- Lore: Barkskin furbolgs are at home in the mountains of Hyjal. After the War of the Ancients, they retreated into the Barrow Deeps to escape the corruption that the Burning Legion spilled upon their kin. They have led secretive lives until recently, when Tyrande Whisperwind acted as an ambassador for the night elves and struck an alliance with the tribe.
- Classes: Druid, Hunter, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock
- Language: Common, Ursine
- Zone: Hyjal
- Racial traits:
- Mount: Stag (normal gray, brown, red; swift black, white, tan)
- Lore: Not often have the fey of the Emerald Dream left their peaceful lives in search of adventure and danger; they never had an incentive. Nevertheless, when the Nightmare grew out of hand, the sprites were among the first to request assistance.
- Classes: Druid, Mage, Priest, Rogue, Shaman
- Language: Orcish, ???
- Zone: Tel'Abim
- Racial Traits:
- Mount: Fox (normal brown, orange, maroon; swift albino, silver, gold)
- Sprites are connected to the Emerald Dream.
- The Horde is composed of mostly, large, "ugly" races, and needs something to balance it out.
Emerald Dream locations
When the Nightmare grew out of hand, the Green Dragonflight ceased its retaliations against outsiders attempting to enter the Emerald Dream. Now, all willing heroes are able to step into the Great Trees throughout Azeroth. From there, they will be teleported to Idrassil, a magical tree within the Dream. This is a neutral haven where outsiders contact the green dragons for the first time. Druids here can learn Teleport: Ildrassil, a utility spell that allows the user to visit at will, akin to Teleport: Moonglade.
Like Shattrath City and Dalaran, this settlement is a sanctuary. Ysera rules the city of golden domes. Dragons ask for the aid of adventurers in abolishing the Emerald Nightmare, and in return offer extraordinary rewards that can-not be found anywhere else.
Emerald Paradise (81-85)
Spanning the east coast of what would be Central Kalimdor, the Emerald Paradise is a lush coastal rainforest. Magestic, giant birds soar above the canopies; gentle creatures walk the ground; life of all sorts thrives in the waterways. All is not well in the paradise, though. Corrupted Ones have crept into the ecosystem, and sapient denziens of the land struggle to purify them before it's too late.
Northern Woodlands (82-84)
Located where the mainland of Northern Kalimdor would be, the Northern Woodlands represent the elven lands without the impact of civilization. Sprites' home was there, and though many went off to assist the Horde, some still remain in place. Darnassus' Cenarian allies also roam the land, and druids from both sides are frequent visitors.
Sands of Time (85-90)
Spanning the southernmost part of Kalimdor from Silithus to Tanaris through the area south of Un'Goro, the Sands of Time make up an ancient, untouched desert. Inhabitants include stone giants, centaur, and a variety of specially adapted arthropods and vertebrates.
Goldenpeak Mountains (83-86)
A long chain of mountains winds down the Emerald Dream's version of Kalimdor.
Black Morass (78-81)
While in the waking world this swamp has been shattered into the Swamp of Sorrows and Blasted Lands, in the Emerald Dream it remains intact. As a dark bog, it is a dangerous place for ambushes by enemies and predators.
Lushgrass Hills (low level)
If the human kingdom of Stormwind had not developed in Elwynn Forest, Westfall, and Duskwood, something equally magnificent would have had the chance to arise. In the Emerald Dream, the fertile soil of this area harbors plants like none ever seen in other worlds. Their stems tower to the sky, and their flowers gleam like the sun. In the center of the region stands Idrassil itself.
Redridge Highlands (low level)
These mountains reflect the Redridge Mountains before the summoning of Ragnaros. Where Searing Gorge and Burning Steppes would have been, the mountains nestle life in their valleys. Recently, the Horde has started to use the highlands' protection as a site for camps and small towns.
Lorn Modan (low level)
Dwarves and other Alliance visitors to the dream have seen this land as "just like home", and quickly chose the snowy peaks as a base from which to combat the Nightmare.
The Shining Sea
Between the continents is the Dream's equivalent to the Great Sea.
Sin'Delar Barrow Den (Northern Woodlands; 84)
Within the Northern Woodlands exists a cavern. There, malicious Druids of the Fang prey on dreamers and trap them as Unwaking. Few dare to rescue these unfortunate spirits, and it is up to a party of seasoned adventurers to free them.
Emerald Nightmare (Shadewood; 90)
The Nightmare is the source of chaos and destruction in the Emerald Dream. Throughout the plane, living things have been transformed into vile monsters from affliction. Recently, the Nightmare has been spotted in the region known as Shadewood. Thus far, all attempts to end the corruption have, ironically, resulted in more corruption. Can someone venture into the heart of this lethal force and discover the cause?
Venture Co. Industrial Camp (Emerald Paradise; 81)
Much to the dismay of the forest creatures, the Venture Co. sees the Emerald Paradise not as a paradise of nature, but one of profit. The goblins of the company are willing to tear apart the land and pollute the air, if necessary, in order to extract and make use of the wealth of resources. The fey have launched a campaign to end the materialistic disruption, but they can-not succeed without the help of the Alliance and Horde.

- Ground Form - As fast as a level 40 mount, the tiger replaces the druid's cheetah.
- Plant Form - Become a plant creature that resembles a lasher and can heal with mana.
Requiring a special saw or axe, logging allows extraction of wood from tree nodes. Sometimes, herbs or fruit can be found on the trees, too. This wood can be used in woodworking recipes and enchanters' wands.
This profession uses wood obtained from logging to craft items. Woodworkers can specialize in three areas:
- Weaponcrafting - Create staves and polearms.
- Fletching - Create bows, crossbows, and arrows.
- Carving - Create trinkets and relics.
- Lore: Laborers and businessmen of the Legion, the Tothrezim show little loyalty to their faction and are concerned more with personal benefits. Therefore, they are easily drawn away from the demonic force by other opportunities. The Alliance's wealth and military might looked promising, and although greatly distrusting of demons, the allied races realized that their knowledge of the enemy could prove invaluable.
- Classes: Hunter, Mage, Priest, Rogue, Warlock
- Language: Common, Abyssal

- Mount: Elder larva
- Lore: Self-serving Gan'arg like to be on the winning side of conflicts. Tired of being bossed around by their physically superior Mo'arg masters, a group of rebels journeyed away from Outland and camped in the Eastern Kingdoms. Impressed by the Horde's influence in beating back the Legion, they offered their technological skills to the Horde in turn for protection from their former team, which has branded them as traitors.
