But yes, although I'm personally split in half as to whether I'd prefer Azshara or the Burning Legion next, it's pretty much a given that we have some fel spanking ahead of us.
- We know the Horde and Alliance have been exposed to a divide an conquer strategy, but are soon at a point where they'll work together. (This could be the start of the 'Army of Light'.)
- We know Turalyon and Alleria are 'needed for what's coming next' (Metzen at MoP launch ceremony). They have been lost in the nether for decades, and probably wrote the text book on killing demons. Plus, there's an interesting build-up for them with the soon-to-be buddies among the Alliance and Horde. T and A hate the horde and as far as they know, the Horde are demon-infested scumbags.
- We know Wration is making it plain obvious to us that green shit will be raining on Azeroth soon. An 'external threat'.
- I haven't been keeping up with lore in recent months, but last I looked they kept building Anduin Wrynn up to be some sort of leader figure of light. My bet is he will be the key to save the world from the flame, or alternatively become corrupted and be one of our greatest enemies.
I really hope they won't do Legion or Old God next expansion, so tired of them. Make up some new enemies FFS, don't just harp on the same old stuff for another decade.

That's directly from the cloak quest.Wrathion says: The Red Crane of Hope has inspired the citizens of Pandaria from the very dawn of history. I very much want to speak with him.
Wrathion says: Great Red Crane! Hear our plea.
Wrathion says: My champion and I seek your blessing of Hope.
Chi-Ji says: My my, the child of the Worldbreaker, proof that none are beyond redemption. I am honored by your visit.
Chi-Ji says: Tell me, Son of the Earth-Warder: What is the nature of hope?
Wrathion says: Hope is...a belief of a better tomorrow.
Chi-Ji says: You speak, but doubt your own words.
Wrathion says: ...Great Crane. You have not seen what I have seen.
Chi-Ji says: You underestimate me.
Wrathion says: ...the fire that once burned the sky will return. It is inevitable. The Burning Legion WILL find Azeroth.
Wrathion says: Seas of blood, cities in ruins! Who are we - one divided world - to stand against a legion?
Wrathion says: You speak of hope. Believe me, the thinnest silver of belief that we might somehow survive the coming devastation is all that sustains me.
Chi-Ji says: Rise, son of Deathwing. I will give you my blessing, for you need it more than any I have ever met.
Chi-Ji says: I challenge you not to think of hope as a vague and unimaginable future.
Chi-Ji says: Live EVERY day with hope in your heart. In doing so, you CREATE the future you dream of.
Wrathion says: ...thank you, Great Crane.
Chi-Ji says: My challenge, should you accept it, tasks you with healing the most grievous of wounds.
Yes, he's correct about the legion coming.
No, he won't be the final boss next expansion.
Having seen Wrathion's lil display of green fireballs falling onto Azeroth, I do believe the next threat will be the return of the Burning Legion.
I think we'll see Argus this time around. I think we'll see Azshara in a raid with one of the content patches being focused on the sunken Naga city where Azshara waits.
I don't think we'll see Sargeras this time around. I think that'll be the 'following' Expansion where we follow the Burning Legion into The Twisting Nether and finish Sargeras off at lvl 100.
