emerald dream would be good stuff
WoW will turn free 2 play. Cataclysm was too much..
Off the top of my head there are a few candidates: Underwater/naga/sea vykrul, emerald dream, xoroth/legion/space, northrend/outland revamp, or underground old god/nerubian/sithilid/aquir expansion.
My money is on an underground bug expansion. Blizzard said they had a different expansion planned before mop, and I think it was a bug one. They had a fairly large sithilis revamp on the ptr(never went live TB did a video), a renewed nerubain presence with the northrend dungeon quest revamp, hints at something under trisifal, a cataclysm that would have disturbed anything chained below azeroth, and a titan death machine in uldum that goes very deep underground.
Don't give me the "blizzard can't do anything with just bugs" excuse. BC was just demons. Wrath was just undead, cata was just elementals, and mop was just pandas.
Don't give me the "blizzard has done enough bugs already" excuse. BC's first tier was all undead, but wrath still happened. Wrath's first tier had dragons galore, but cata happened. Blizzard managed to make players feel sympathy for orcs, doing bugs will be cake.
Also, Kalimdor would have been discovered a lot faster than it was, the two continents had nothing in between them on that side. I'd like to think of that sea as the Pacific Ocean between the Americas and Asia, only it will probably contain a continent sooner or later.
Maybe they switched it accidently?
Besides Emerald Dream, Argus, Xoroth, there's the potential for a naga-based expansion wherein Queen Azshara uses the powers of Neptulon to raise sunken portions of Kalimdor back to the surface to create a new landmass - plenty of potential there. There's also the Elemental Planes, and a return to Outland - wouldn't mind exploring more of the history of that world, especially about the giants and the arakkoa.
So yeah, there's a good few expansions we might see yet.
And IF the other side of Azeroth was still undiscovered, what could there possibly be at that other side? As I see it, Azeroth does show quite a lot of resemblance with Earth. And as I know nothing about WoW lore, I'm sort of trying to interpret things as if Azeroth was the Earth. (Northrend would be Scandinavia, Iceland and the North Pole). Kalimdor would be North America + A small part of South America. The Eastern Kingdoms would be a little like Europe and Africa. Pandaria would be more like China/East Asia. If you ask me, practically all of the landscapes & cultures known on Earth are now somehow/somewhat represented in Azeroth too. The "Other" side of Azeroth wouldn't have much other possibilities as Australia, New Zealand, More of Asia or Antartica (Which is actually already somewhat represented by Northrend too). That is if we're sticking to the landscapes and cultures on Earth. Ofcourse this would be with a little twist, but that's the way I'm looking at it.
hopefully it will be dead after mop and blizz rolls out Titan
I would say Azshara so we can kill/save Neptulon or The Emerald dream in order to visit Malfurion and kick him in the feathers for being so inactive and mostly because we all want to see how this third DtA is gonna look, will he be a giant hairy leg ? A bleeding nose ? ...
personally i think the odds are big we're going too another planet agian like we did in BC. especially after blizzard realized making a expansion like cata which added new zones too old continents didnt work. making an azshara themed expansion less likely, ofcourse she might be part of a new expansion but then they have too make a lot of underwater zones (i personally like vashjir so bring it) but lots of people disliked that. and they have too work out some lore that a new continent rises from the deep abyss.
seems a lot easier to go to a new planet and leave azshara for now
Well the biggest candiates are, in no particular order:
1) South Seas, seafloor, Tomb of Sargeras, Zandalar, Azshara as the main antagonist
2) Xoroth, Argus, main antagonist Sargeras
+ maybe Turalyon and Alleria finally found, maybe Outland revamp
3) Emerald Dream, main antagonist N'Zoth
Velophyx' post reminded me that I'm still waiting for a Slavic culture based race.

No, we will defeat the Burning Legion once with Kil'Jaeden as its leader before we defeat it again with Sargeras on top, or perhaps Sargeras will simply be an enemy on his own that they will save for the very last expansion of WoW, or we might not meet him in WoW at all as they might want to save some villans to build on future games - and who better to save than a villan that has been mostly in the background but is directly and/or indirectly responsible for some of the greatest villans in the Warcraft lore such as the Burning Legion + Kil'Jaden and Archimonde, the Scourge + the Lich King and the Naga + Queen Azshara. He could spawn a whole new basket of villans and factions for a Warcraft 4 / WoW 2 in the distant future.
