    it's simple, it's the expansion to finish off the old gods before the final expansion with the burning legion and sargeras being the final final boss

    They aren't going to release a "Dark Below" expansion without Azshara and the Naga. Your theory is nice but its convoluted and made up from your own imagination completely irrelevant to the lore.

    Not the first time they've done it either. Not shocking in the least.

    Blizzard mostly release big patches and/or expansions to compete with any other mmo on the market. They´ve been doing that for ages now, so can´t really say it´s a surprise if you are right.

Tying multiple storylines together is always much more interesting...

    Now, if they could just make Undermine and Kul Tiras, both on the edge of the precipice, the starting points for our journey into the Dark Below.....
    Who knows. Everyone was convinced Cata was the Azshara/Naga expansion (or the name of Titan).

    ^^ Yep, Ozumat is <Fiend of the Dark Below>. Dark Below is definitely a WoW thing. That looks about right.

    This is what Ra-den sais when defeted
    " Wait! I am... I am not your enemy. You are powerful, more powerful than he was, even... perhaps you are right. Perhaps there is still hope.
    But there is a yawning chasm of darkness beneath you mortals, vast, endless, and all consuming. I do not believe that you can correct this doomed course.
    But you have earned the right to try. Farewell. "

    Um... what theory is that, that Azshara wouldn't automatically have something to do with a South Seas expansion? Maybe she would. Maybe she wouldn't. Nobody knows yet.

    We know the words "the dark below" and that is the only thing we know. If it's a WoW expansion we have no idea what it entails (half the people here seem to feel it would be entirely Burning Legion-based). Your first sentence is therefore rather... convoluted and made up, wouldn't you think?

    Figures, I too thought that we weren't prepared for another legion themed expansion, too soon IMO. So, I was thinking of the Azjol Empire, but I guess that's gonna happen with the Northrend 2.0 expansion, and someone already mentioned Ozumat, so I am guessing South Seas, lot's of water and islands etc. more interesting than a legion expansion, but maybe it's just me. Anyway, could be another thing entirely, we'll just have to wait.

    Nobody thought Mists of Pandaria was the expansion when they trademarked that...!

    I will be all up in your grimdark expansion, doing the Kung-Fu Panda dance!

    You heard it here first:

    I hear various theories about EITHER an Azshara/naga themed expansion OR a Burning Legion expansion. But what if they weren't mutually exclusive??

    Azshara's goal in the War of the Ancients was to transport Sargeras through the Well of Eternity...If the next expansion features Azshara as a prominent lore figure, then what if we travel to the depths in order to stop her from summoning Sargeras through another portal of pure energy? A naga/underwater/burning legion themed expansion?? Could constitute both - and could culminate into the final expansion where we travel through the twisting nether to fight Sargeras on his home turf.

    Every WoW expansion references some "dark, ancient evil" that has awoken. To me it is just incredibly vague for WoW.

    Everyone thought it was the expansion, they just didn't want it to be.

    It's most likely the name of the Diablo 3 expansion. Blizzard said they had a big D3 announcement at Gamescon, so the timing lines up nicely.
