    True, but Warcraft's Facebook Page just posted that. Obviously they're just teasing us with little hints.

    Wrathion told us last September, at the very beginning of the legendary quest. He doesn't outright say the legion, but his little holo-display shows infernals on their atmospheric entry so it's pretty clear.

    Which is sad, they basically took Velen's role and handed it over to Wrathion. Though, Velen would be less shady about it.

    Maybe, maybe not. Time will tell.

    Where?! Where in the world did anyone get the impression that this is referring to the Burning Legion?

    Wrathion being cryptic about it in the first phase of the Legendary Questline for one.

    One of them is a human.

    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.

    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    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.

    If that's true, we might as well pencil in 5.5.

    Like what? We haven't dealt with the Burning Legion seriously since Burning Crusade.

    Perhaps I am a little slow, but how does this hint towards the Legion specifically? I believe that is where we are headed as much as the next person, but I don't see this as confirmation.

    if you have done the Legendary Questline for Wrathion he says a new danger to Azeroth is coming and shows a hologram of Infernals and fire reigning down on Azeroth aka the Burning Legion

    Wrathion showed us a little *vision* of sorts. It showed Green Orbs falling down on Azeroth. Now we all know what the *green Orbs* mean to us. Well I hope people do.

    We have known since the start of mop that it will be a legion expansion because blizzard got the black prince to tell us more then once. Sargeras? May be jumping the gun there a bit. There are many Legion worlds we need to take down before we attack there home world.

    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 kneels
    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.
    Wrathion stands
    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.
    That's directly from the cloak quest.

    Yes, he's correct about the legion coming.

    No, he won't be the final boss next expansion.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    Yes... but is the Legion really a "NEW" danger to Azeroth?

    Ok, yes, we do see green orbs falling onto Azeroth during that scene, but Blizz has been known to pull the ole red herring before...

    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.

    Azshara not being a final expansion boss would be a major mishandling of her character.

    Read up on her, she's not a pawn of anyone. She's the most powerful mage ever.
