WRUP: Our crystal balls


It's like someone announced some big giant party. Oh? You mean BlizzCon in November? Yeah, that might be what we're thinking of. So it's time for your intrepid team of WoW Insider journalists to break out our crystal balls... and tell you what we think will go down.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I'm going to be helping my dad - he's remodeling the atrium. It is a messy task but loads of fun! And also I have raiding on Sunday, which has returned to being loads of fun, too. Bonus answer: Expansion announcement, I'm hoping outer space because draenei, maybe new character models, maybe also a hint or two about Titan. So many possibilities this year for cool information, really!

Chase Hasbrouck (@alarondruid, @alaronmonk) I'll be mostly working on updating my druid and monk guides for 5.2, so not too much actual playtime going on. Bonus: WoW expansion is revealed, (likely The Outlands Strike Back)and DIII expansion is announced. Titan announced as World of Blackthorne (okay, that's a joke, but it'll likely be a action-based MMO) and features cross-play with the new Xbox and Playstation, set to launch November 2014.

Dan Desmond (@Antigen_) I imagine I'll be capping VP and doing a bunch of dailies, but outside of that I'm just waiting for Tomb Raider to come out next Monday.

I think the big reveal at Blizzcon will be that Titan is actually a joint project with Bungie called "Destiny." Oh come on, I can dream can't I?!

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb) I think I'm finally shedding the last of the dread plague virus, so I'm hoping to feel well enough to catch up on some gaming. LFR on WoW seems a strong possibility, as well as finishing Project Impact on my Geth Juggernaught or Krogan Warlord on ME3 MP.

My prediction is another burning legion based WoW expansion. Probably with the beginnings of that Army of Light thing and a trip to the Draenei homeworld.

Dawn Moore (@dawnwow) I'm feeling a bit too restless to game this weekend, so other than Sunday's raid I don't have any specific gaming plans. I wish summer would come sooner.

Bonus: I would love to see Titan finally unveiled but I think a Diablo expansion is more likely. But who knows, maybe Duncan Jones will be there and it'll be a "we finally have a script" announcement. I can dream, right?

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) I would love to hit 90 on my paladin, but I'm working nights downtown. So unless all the citizens of my fair city decide to abstain from drugs, alcohol, violence, and all other ambulance-requiring vices this weekend, I probably will just be working and sleeping.

I'm not thinking anything spectacular for BlizzCon. Maybe the official announcements for Blizzard DOTA and the D3 expansion?

Joe Perez (@lodurzj) I'm actually spending the weekend fairly low tech and painting up my space marines, decided to swap them from Ultramarines to Dark Angels so much painting to do. If I have time I'll be doing some LFR on my horde hunter should be good times.

Bonus: Well, I don't think it will be Blizzard DoTA, fairly confident that we'll hear about that at PAXEast since they've already said they had a big reveal for that, which isn't one of the three main IPs, and have already said it's not Titan. For BlizzCon 2013, I'm guessing new expansion announcement which will start leading us towards the road of punking off Sargeras. Probably also something about Titan, since they've been sitting on that for a bit now.

Matt "Matticus" Low (@matticus) Going CURLING this weekend, guys!

Big reveal: Dance studio finally arrives!

Matt Walsh (@Rhidach) Finally received Skyward Sword, so I'll be spending my weekend between the surface world and Skyloft. Can't wait.

Big reveal at Blizzcon this year? New character models. (A man can dream.)

Michael Gray (@writegray) I'm playing with my Squishy.

Olivia Grace (@oliviadgrace) getting alts to 480, and tanking all the things! I missed tanking so much. Likely last minute PvP too, to get characters' gear fully upgraded before 5.2. The way PvP gear is working is kind of crazy this patch.

And I am excited about blizzard all-stars, because that is what it will be. Yes it is. Playable, too. Yup.

Robin Torres (@cosmiclaurel) I'm going to do the Darkmoon Faire on most of my alts. That will take a while. Otherwise I'll be at a birthday party for a three year old and doing other outdoor family things in beautiful Los Angeles weather.

Bonus: The next expansion for WoW, the next expansion for Diablo, and finally some details about Titan.

The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
