This map was posted on mmo-champion.com from WoWGuru.com. Probably a fake, but blizz has been adding Expansion2 graphics into the PTR patches, things like new herb graphics and whatnot, so it's possible that it is real I guess.

And some other stuff regarding the second expansion:

 

Future features (Via Stratics)

In the newest print issue of gaming magazine Games for Windows lead producer Shane Dabiri is quoted "And it's no secret we're working on the next expansion." Now, I'm not totally surprised by this as WoW is an MMO and essentially needs new expansions to keep itself going. The exclusive story in GFW reveals some new little tidbits coming into our game after 2.1.

 

Guild Banks

Some of the key features of guild banks will be the ability to allow some of your members to use the money put in the bank for repairs (from NPC's and bots, which will have a new option) and reportedly will have hundreds of slots for items and such. The potential is ripe for abuse but Blizzard will have it set up so that transactions are documented on their website and abusers can be reported and Customer Service would then get involved.

 

In-game VoIP

Good-bye Ventrilo and Teamspeak! Blizzard is gearing up to add VoIP straight into the game for players that will help the problem of players not knowing or recognizing someone's voice and missing a critical heal or other critical game play needs. A players name will be highlighted when they are talking and you are able to click on their name then to select them and give them their buff/heal/etc.

 

There will also be the option to separate the voice chat from the game music sound to different sound channels. So you could (in theory) have the music and sound effects going through your regular speakers and the voice chat going through just your headset. To begin with, the VoIP will only be available to Parties and Raids but there may be room for expanding on that with custom channels (presumably for guilds).

While sexy to think about, it's a fake.

 

If you look there is the Naga in the Bottom Right, the Giant in the Bottom left, the dragon Up top.

 

This is just the world (Azeroth) map, minus the 2 continents. Looks like they just photoshopped them out, and used it as the backround.

I figured as much. It's fun to think about though. I'm sure we'll hear/see a lot more from Blizzcon.
