When I saw "The Dark Below" I immediately thought of Azjol'Nerub as well! Don't see it as an expansion though. I would get sick of the spider theme.
Would be much better than either The Legion or underwater stuff. Sadly, it most definitely isn't referring to Azjol Nerub, it just seems too obvious to be the underwater stuff. I wish they'd throw us a curveball again like with Mists instead of making predictable stuff, but that's really just because I don't fancy either the Legion or Naz'jatar stuff.
Oi! Hey you! Will you check out my latest podcast episode which discusses the future of video game technology and if they make you violent!?
that could be kool
On the other hand, the puzzle and Ozumats box referring to how the 'fish know the secrets' etc - could be argued it has to be underwater. But then again, theres no reason Azjol-nerub needs to be devoid of water. It could easily be an underground empire that is partially sunken as well. Ozumat could be fiend of the dark below and still serve as reference to both Azjol-nerub and Azshara quite easily.
Ozumat was summoned in a ritual along with the other faceless ones, who are snnymous with underground places more like Azjol than Azshara (Think Wc3). I think of it as the Kraken in Pirates of the Carribean. Even if the expansion is Azjol-Nerub and mostly ground, the bosses there could still use Ozumat as their servant to go forth and wreak destruction on the seas of Azeroth for them.

An underground themed expansion was the first thing that flicked through my head when I say the 'Dark Below' trademark.
Then I was like "...n-nah. More likely underwater."
Still, Blizzard went to the trouble of adding quests in Cataclysm indicating that the nerubians were rebuilding, so clearly they haven't forgotten the nerubians.
I like it's likely we'll see them and the bug races acting as replacement for the trolls in future, once the last of the Zandalari are dealt with. Then the Aqir come back and the nerubians, qiraji, and mantid rally around them as a new major threat.
Nerubians owo I want. I want I want I want I want.
I had the same thought, but came to the same conclusion that there just might not be enough for an entire expansion. I'd love to see more Azjol-Nerub, you could quite easily bring the Klaxxi into that as then you get exalted with the Klaxxi, you're told they are related to the Nerubians.
I'd love it to be spider themed, but alas, I dont think it will be.
Spider Kingdom could be shoe horned in as a raid teir patch in a future expansion. I could see that, never it's own expansion, because it's too shallow. However, if we ever go to some Dark realm, or shadow realm to kill the true bodies of all the old gods, I could see us going to the spider kingdom for some reason. I dunno, what's left there?! Haven't we killed enough big spider people?

I doubt we will get that at all, even if it would be freaking awesome! Nerubian deserve a real raid atleast. Anub'arak was one of my favorite characters from WC3, and fightning him in Wotlk, but was sad at the fact, he was only a dungeon boss... Well he did become a final boss! ... In a raid that had nothing to do at all with Nerubian... So yeah.. More Nerubian love please!
I dont know, I gotta be honest with myself when it comes to more old gods lore. Two expansions already have been about them, granted they have been only in the background. Im still not ruling out that this could be a D3 expansion, since they need one too. But if it is about the naga and etc, I'll need a strong selling point to get through this lore wise.
I'm still hoping 'the dark below' will involve finding out what's under Tirisfal.
I already thought so, yes. I really loved Azjol Nerub and AhnKahet, and the stuff below ICC and TOC, and I hope we get to see more. The way I see it, TDB (if legit) is generally old god themed, with final boss being N'Zoth, who is chilling in NyAlotha, but im hoping we see some Ancient Nerubian zones and cavernous zones like Deepholm too, not just underwater zones. And since the Nerubians have worked with the Faceless before...
When I heard of the title, my first few thoughts went among the lines of "I'd like it to be Azjol-Nerub. I'd live with it being some naga stuff too though. Hell, I'd love it if it's more Vashj'ir-esque stuff! But it's probably gonna be something for Diablo." But then I started to think. Does anyone remember the C'thun quests in Silithus from Cataclysm's beta? They were scrapped at some point, and we pretty much just went with it. I can see them being used in the new expansion. Definitely would be up for that.
No I hadn't and I think it's unlikely but god
I fucking hope it is
