I'm convinced. Probably the most logical post I've read about potential storylines today.
Everyone seems to assume Azshara would be associated with a Naga/South Seas storyline, or the Old Gods would be in their own lair, etc. However, it doesn't need to be as cut and dry as it was with Arthas/WOTLK... what if the Old Gods are being resurrected in the ancient depths of Azeroth and Azshara, who has been living there, has discovered the secret to do so? 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).
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. "
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.
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.
“Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming...The nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh…a coast-line of mingled mud, ooze, and weedy Cyclopean masonry which can be nothing less than the tangible substance of earth's supreme terror...The geometry of R'lyeh is abnormal, non-Euclidean, and loathsomely redolent of spheres and dimensions apart from ours...it was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults. ”...deep beneath the sea...the Dark Below.
I'm hoping so much that the Rl'ye...I mean NYA'LOTHA, is going to rise from the depths (atleast partly) bringing lot of landmass with it, and be our new contient as it has been speculated in a few threads.
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.
