I'd like to see a situation where the Prince enveloped in light as predicted by Velen, leads the army against the Legion and Sargeras return but is swallowed by darkness. As the battle starts to go against them an unlikely "ally" arrives to help. The Pantheon returns to Azeroth to strike down or capture their former peer. However, before that plays out, Sargeras releases the remaining Old Gods. This causes wide spread panic and destruction across Azeroth, places the already strained resources of Azeroth into a position where they need to choose which side to back, and choose wisely as we learn the Titans of the Pantheon are not as lordly as they were believed to be.
Start next expac.
Also, you make a huge logical misstep in stating Illidan ordered the attack on Shattrath. Vorenthal said the order came from Illidan, sure, but who did he get that order from... thats right Kael. Now, do we assume an order that made no sense actually came from Illidan due to his insanity... or do we believe the order actually came from KJ... who has a long standing historical feud with the Draenei... yeah, that order didn't come from Illidan.
As for mistreating the broken draenei. You seem to believe that he ever treated them well because you have this view of Illidan as a guy that is inherently good just is grossly misunderstood. There is absolutely nothing to state that from his defeat in Icecrown to the 5 years later that we get to Shadowmoon, that he was originally a good and benevolent leader, and then he switched. I think this is another storytelling trope of having traded one evil dictator (Magtheridon) for a worse evil dictator - in fact Akama states this in his narration of the black temple trailer.
Granted, I wish the presentation of that story was as nice as how there are using the game engine to tell Pandaria's story ; )
Or maybe it was Sargeras that was defeated, maybe the legion was claiming he was the "final titan" and so they must rebuild him. Maybe they are pushing into Azeroth once more to try and resurrect him with the wells of energy.

Maybe Wrathion is trying to re-create the power that Khaz'goroth gave to Neltharion.
So he would be the only true "Aspect".
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
So I chose the path of the Ebon Blade, and not a day passes where i've regretted it.
I am eternal, I am unyielding, I am UNDYING.
I am Zethras, and my blood will be the end of you.
Would be nice if we do end up having a titan / burning legion themed expansion... I guess we'll find out in about ~5-6 months!

Note the dates This, combined with they announced there is going to be a blizzcon this year, means we're only about 5-6 months away most likely from another trademark filing... can't wait!
It was also stated in lore that Old Gods's armies were so vast and endless but combined might of them and elemental lords couldn't stop the mighty titans. So, I am pretty sure Old gods were not outnumbered here. It was the titans who were outnumbered. Titan didn't even need Sargeras to imprision 4 old gods and killed 1.
I'm still very curious as to how Wrathion became possessed and what device did it..
My only thought is it may have been a voice from the past, or he was becoming possessed by a Titan talking at the same time he picked up the device.
Didnt the thunderking get his power from a titan? maybe this is the titan that needs to be rebuilt.
