Who knows what the future will hold for new features...
Personally I've been saying I'd like the next expansion to level cap 95 to deal with Azshara and N'Zoth. Though I'd like the patches to lead up to a battle against Azshara only for her to manipulate us into a position to actually fight WITH the naga to stop N'Zoth. An Emerald Dream based raid to fight the nightmare included and it all culminates in stopping N'Zoth and Azshara escaping rather than being killed in the end. A hollow victory knowing she and the naga are completely free to their own devices.
Burning Legion would be fitting for a level cap 100 expansion.
Sargeras has been built up to the "grand villain" of all of Warcraft. The entire idea that we won't kill him is kinda dumb. Do you really think Blizzard would do Kil'Jaedan as the final boss of an Argus expansion, a boss that we have fought (and "defeated") already?
Also, the entire point of getting rid of Garrosh is to allow the two factions to ally when we fight the Legion... putting Sylvanas in charge would be counter-productive.
The 1 with the blood elfes could be interesting as we have seen NOFING since the story end after the sunwell ignition, it might be a re-new of thier lore + thier affection with garrosh i'd bet as they're known for thier tactics in war, just a speculation..
Agreed, and Shandris!Oh don't get me wrong I like the development Varian is getting, it's just I'd like to see some non-humans get some of the spotlight also (Notably Tyrande).
Honestly, I'd like to see Tyrande and Shandris out there leading some forces. I'd also like to see Vereesa on the battlefield after Rhonin's death. And when Alleria is finally back, I want the uncomfortable family reunion.
If you're raised as a Forsaken your choices are: A.) Serve the Banshee Queen, which just means be a citizen of the Undercity, as not all forsaken are soldiers. B.) Return to being dead, because as a level 1 quest shows you, the undead can just willpower themselves dead. Or C.) Go do something else. As Sylvanas has no hostilities towards the Argent Crusade or the Ebon Blade, the exception being Koltira, who directly costs the deaths of many Forsaken soldiers because he didn't end the siege of Andorhal when he could have.
Sylvannas sees the Forsaken as her shield against death. So she does do mass genocide. Although Garrosh asked her to get a harbour and she went to Gilneas, she also tested chemical weapons on Southshore, made human-farms in Hillsbrad and tries to continue the plaguing of the land in Western Plaguelands.
I won't comment of Varian as never wanted a blue Horde either.
And as for Rexxar, here is the deal, Rexxar did not kill Alliance troops. He killed Kul Tiras troops, while Jaina had distanced herself and the Alliance from them when they said they want to destroy the orcs and didn't want to listen to diplomacy. So Rexxar killed the soldiers of Admiral Proudmoore, which, even though allied with the Alliance, were sort of a distinct part of the Alliance. Sort of how the brown orcs are to the Horde.
2. Sargeras is indeed the grand villain of Warcraft. You kill him and the series ends. It's like killing Sauron. I doubt Blizz would end their 10,000,000 player cash cow.
3. From WoWpedia.
As a former Champion of the Pantheon, Sargeras is nearly impervious to physical damage. He is highly resistant to magical attacks. His natural attacks are more powerful than other titans. Demonic influences have given Sargeras' body flames and made him totally immune to fire damage and fel damage. Sargeras' flesh burns with demonic energy, scorching everything in his path. Sargeras' body flames slowly increase the ambient temperature by up to fifty degrees in every direction for one thousand miles. The effect on natural climates can be devastating.If he's so important to the lore, and so powerful, he won't be defeated ever.He has been shown to display the following powers:
Telepathy (able to commune with his servants, such as Mannoroth and Archimonde, from the Nether)
Illusion (created a false vision of what he offered to the eredar in exchange for their obedience)
Invulnerability against mortal weapons, and limited immunity to immortal weapons (the axe created by Cenarius for Broxigar was able to wound him, but not to any great effect, while the powers of the Demon Soul had no effect) as well as complete immunity to fire and fel magics.
Various magical abilities (lashed out with energy at Illidan via the portal being opened to summon him).
Able to look into the mortal realm through the eyes of a chosen servant (his "gift" to Illidan).
Ability to enter mortal bodies (remained within Aegwynn's womb for nearly a millennium) and take control of them (Medivh).
Body Flames (Sargeras’ flesh burns with demonic energy, scorching everything in his path. Sargeras’s body flames slowly increase the ambient temperature by up to 50 degrees in every direction for 1,000 miles. The effect on natural climates can be devastating.)
His molten armor can nearly burn your eyes.
The strength of 100 dragons is merely a fraction of Sargeras' strength; his strength nearly matches the power of a portal closing.
In comparison to Sargeras, Mannoroth and Archimonde were as fleas. This could be a reference to either power or height.
He wields the horrific broken sword, Gorribal.
