We've dealt with the major, recent plots from WarCraft 3. (BC, WotLK, Cata)
We've dealt with the inevitable refurbishment of Azeroth. (Cata)
We've dealt with the equally inevitable pandaren and the Asian theme - not everyone likes this, but it was being hinted at for years. (MoP)
Also, we'll soon be rid of the (now) rather tiresome formula of the evil Horde and Garrosh Hellscream, and the Alliance with Varian and his murky past.
We'll get a new start with the leadership of the factions.
From here, we can only get awesome, fresh content.
- Burning Legion and a new world
- Azshara and the oceans
- Unknown villain and the other side of Azeroth
- You name it
So I'm calling it - the next expansion will see WoW return to a 11-12 million strong subscription base.
