Darion Mograine will take it back and be like Sir Zeliek of the Four Horsemen in Naxx. A Death Knight wielding the power of the Light. After all, his father did say he'd one day wield it and mete out justice. Aside from the battle where he became a DK, he hasn't done that yet.

They will raise onyxia again in the chamber of the new lich king and let it drop as a "Legendary"
Ok, firstly, Alexandros Mograine was not a prophet. When he said that Darion would one day wield the Ashbringer, he did so on the assumption neither would become Death Knights. He made a promise, not a prophecy. Those are different in that a promise can be broken, or the circumstances that allow it to be fulfilled can change. Pretty much like a farmer telling his son that 'one day you will run this farm', without knowing that a month later, said farm would be burned to the ground.
Secondly, the uncorrupted Ashbringer turns undead to ash. Hence the name. Death Knights are undead, so Darion even touching it at this point would be excruciating at best.
So that's Darion Mograine as the next wielder of the Ashbringer out of the way...
Tirion may be old, but he's not *that* old. Hey may retire, yes, but I doubt he's going to just fall over from old age any time soon. And even so, if he retires, it may just be solely from active combat. Which he seems to be doing rather little of as it is.
IF he retires, though, and passes on the Ashbringer... we seem to be short on well-known paladins who have a history of fighting the Scourge. Liadrin pops to mind, but that's about it.
They could also just keep the sword within the Argent Crusade, as a symbol, without an actual wielder.
My money is that it will either pass to another high ranking member of the argent crusade or to another paladin on par with Tirion to properly wield the weapon Turalyon comes to mind.
When Sylvanas defeats the Argent Crusade for interposing in her expansion plans, she personally will end with the old Tirion Fordring with the bow she picked up from the cold hands of his sister Vereesa after killing her. The sword of Tirion, the Ashbringer, will be collected by the survivors of the Argent Crusade, escaping in disarray after the defeat.
Later, Sylvanas will manage to take all the Frostmourne fragments for reforge the damned sword again, this time being she herself its wielder. But her ambition does not stop there, after conquering all of Lordaeron her next target will be the Frozen Throne...
Nevertheless, when all the work done by the Argent Crusade was about to be lost, when the hope of restoring Lordaeron to its former glory was about to dissipate forever, an enigmatic heroine will appear from the shadows ... someone who claims to be the legitimate heir to the throne of Lordaeron.
She's the Queen Calia, she is back, and this time not as a pampered princess, on the contrary, she has turned into the image of what should have been her brother. The Queen Calia promises clean all the undead from Lordaeron with the power of the holy light, honoring thus her father and all her ancestors: she seeks to recover all of what her brother defiled.
Every day more people support her, even she is forming her own army, an army from the remains of the Argent Crusade and the Scarlet Crusade: the Scarlet Dawn, which is causing skirmishes against the Forsaken forces here and there all around Lordaeron, a partisan warfare tactic that is exhausting the patience of Sylvanas.
The wrath and contempt that Queen Calia feels towards the undead is atrocious: she considered them the perpetrators of the state in which her former home is now and aims to eradicate all of them with or without the support of the Alliance and against all the opposition of the Horde.
However, everything changes when the Queen Calia encounter a forsaken prisoner in particular, someone who with, despite his rotten appearance, the Queen will be familiar, is it possible that there is still some of the old citizens of Lordaeron alive in these walking corpses?, is it possible that they could be redeemed? The Queen Calia is more confused than ever.
But her fate was written: a legendary weapon has chosen her as its bearer and so, she will be who will face the Banshee Queen herself ... she will be the new ... Ashbringer.
Two vindictive women, two epic swords, face to face for the control of one kingdom ... coming soon ... only in World of Warcraft.

Anyway, I think there is one way to deal with it, put it in cash shop and rename it to the legendary blade of trade chat and general forums - THE CASHBRINGER.
Years went by and finally someone got the idea of fireing a spell of light at the object. Which it absorbed. Then everyone present did the same and voila... it got turned into the orb of light, which was then smacked down by Magni into a flat circle.
So yeah the blade itself could be made better perhaps (even tho Magni said it was the best sword he had ever made). But not the power it has...
