I watched this video from wowmusicable, And i really hope if The Dark Below is the real expansion, that it will be this.
"The Dark below - Hell ?"
This is not Diablo. This is Warcraft!
Legitimately 1 quote from the non canon RPG and a few pictures of Warlock/Demon fan art
i was thinking maybe they mispelled the trademark and it was actually Bellow
so it was, The Dark Shout. probably not.Verb
(of a person or animal) Emit a deep loud roar, typically in pain or anger: "he bellowed in agony"; "the bellowing of a bull".
check out my latest podcast episode, I broke my ankle
Other than the ancient, non-canon reference to the Dark Below in the Warcraft RPG manual there is nothing anywhere linking the Dark Below to Hell or demons. There are, however, references to "The Dark Below" in the game already, most notably Ozumat <Fiend of the the Dark Below>. "The Dark Below" referring to demons is total bunk. Your thread is pointless anyway since there are dozens of threads about this already.
What they likely reference for it being hell is the now non-canon RPG books.
The only canon references we have to The Dark Below is a Faceless Boss called "Duke of Below" and Ozumat being "Fiend from the Dark Below."
The Dark Below is a pretty obvious reference to deep underwater areas or, perhaps, caverns.
Granted, that doesn't mean there won't be demons. Azshara is pretty well known for opening a huge demonic gateway at the Well of Eterinity, after all. She could do it again.
Everyone is expecting a Legion expansion, but Blizzard has mentioned, in the not-too-distant past that they wanted to make Azshara a bit more visible. There's no reason they can't have both Azshara and the Legion in the next expansion. Indeed, it seems somewhat likely if The Dark Below is the next expansion.

I'd laugh if we go into a WoW version of Hell.
MEET ALL THE VILLAINS WE KILLED!!!
I thought warcraft hell was retconned?
Orc Shaman - Pandaren Monk - Orc Warlock - Pandaren WarriorFrostwolf clan is best clan!
nah it would be underwater stuff with azshara and old gods and possibly a connection to the twisting nether
The dark below is probably the inside of N'Zoths azzhoule. Or Thrall's. At least that's the kind of vibe I'm getting from it. No way Blizzard really intends to use it as an expansion title.
Everyone seems to forget that the RPG mentioned the Dark Below in the way it did to allow for D&D-style demons in Azeroth (presumably without just making them offshoots of the Legion). It shouldn't be read as anything dealing with demons/devils and the like because that is non-canon and again it only existed to allow a way for DMs to use the existing Baatezu and Tan'ari devils and demons in the Warcraft RPG.
While I would personally love a 'Hell' for Azeroth where unique demons existed not under Burning Legion control, I guess it would appear to be too Diablo-ish.
That being said, an underground expansion that isn't Deepholm all over again would be great.

I'm still gullible and believe that 5.5 is the Skysunder and the Dark Below references all of Azeroth after the Legion started their invasion with part of the expansion going back to Outland and through some of the portals there to areas beyond.
