    We could head into Thros etc.
    Both Ulduar and the Thunder King were part of the initial questing experience and you could tell that both will be Raid Content. Isle of Thunder was already datamined during Beta iirc.

    You forgot to add Final Fantasy 14 as an option.

    No idea... probably Anduin with story that will include Arthas.

    There was to much work done on the whole story around Zovaal. They just introduced him to us. He was and got even stronger than anything we ever encountered. No way we will even attack him... What Sargeras is for Burning Legion, Zovaal is for the Undead. General who gets his commands from the forces that have not been revealed yet.

    i think it's who ever the dreadlords are working for either malganis or sargeras

    Pessimist in me says the Jailor will be the 9.2 end boss, because that's probably worst outcome. We barely know anything about him, and the game needs a big bad that sticks around and is a looming threat. If we kill him, that's the worst scenario. If we fight him and even appear to have a chance at beating him in 9.2, that just undermines the character, who will need a DBZ power-up of some kind to escalate his power even further. There's a possible scenario where you fight him but he handily beats us, but it would involve us just annoying him at best... and it could work, but I don't trust the route with the way the game's lore and story has been going.

    That would be catastrophic. Hopefully he isn’t big enough to pick it up.

    normally in a x.2 patch, blizzard changes up the setting a bit so it won´t all look the same. (not only in regards to the raid but also the zone that comes with it.)

    so I think it will be either
    -> Nathreza or something along the lines with the Nathrezim as Antagonists (with some enslaved demons or something like that as servants, maybe even a first look at the Tothrezim from the RPG) and Anduin as Endboss with 2 Blades, the 2nd being Ramornia
    or
    -> the "Lightlands" as zone with the Naaru (Naaru-Prime) / Elune / Lightsworn as enemies and Anduin as Endboss with 2 Blades, the 2nd being Ramornia

    This would develop into certain large scale changes.. Then some time travel will set us back to a different time and timeline. Hence WoW going through some large changes which will see us progressing towards breaking the veil before it is too late, to be able to actually defeat the Jailer and stop his purpose.

    That would see the game revamped.

    That is what I can imagine from the current devs team.
    For the first time? We literally lose in Sanctum.
    For the Alliance, and for Azeroth!

    Unless blizz ends the xpac at 9.2 - we won't be fighting the jailer next Raid. If blizz calls SLS quits at 9.2 then I expect it will be the Jailer next

    9.2 is about 8-9 months away so.. get your potions saved up

    Tbf Shadowlands might be a longer expansion pack due to the pandemic. More so assuming the consistent pattern might not hold true consider the world currently.
    Do you really think they will keep trotting along on this xpac?
    It's unthinkable to me with all the delays and backlash.

    But, yeah, maybe the development of the next xpac is also majorly delayed.

    My money is on 9.2 being the last patch and the next xpac being a longer cycle as well.

    I see 9.2 releasing around feb/march and next xpac a year after.

    Either His Majesty, King Anduin in 9.2, then Zovaal in 9.3, OR Zovaal in 9.2, and then the TRUE puppet masters in 9.3. (Whomever they may be.)

    I still think a cross-over would be hilarious.

    hopefully the jailer so we can skip a 9.3 and get a fresh xpac.

    The safe pick: Zovaal

    With basically the whole expansion building him up, this seems like the obvious one. Him as a final boss, with Anduin being either the boss before him or being part of the final encounter. This encounter would more likely than not feature a Sylvanas redemption arc, to the surprise of no one.

    The slight reach: Anduin

    This one would most likely bank on this xpac having four raid tiers. Anduin pulling an Uno reverse card on Zovaal is also a possibility here. Speaking of...

    The big reach: Ve'nari

    All the time helping her in the Maw ends up resulting in her pulling a fast one on Zovaal. Bonus points if this is a Mythic-only encounter for the "true" ending, but I wouldn't expect Blizz to be that spicy in this day and age.

    Yes, but i doubt we will see more than another raid tier for Shadowlands. Sadly.

    Isn't that Denathrius?... Who we JUST fought as the final boss of Castle Nathria?...

    Zovaal will somehow survive Shadowlands and we'll chase him to the next expansion. Anduin will be the final boss of 9.2 and Shadowlands. I am betting he dies for good because most players realize how often we've killed/fought Horde leaders or characters as bosses and think it's imbalanced that we never kill an Alliance hero.

    Shouldn't Arthas make an appearance somewhere? He is still somewhere in the Maw. Maybe he will Pop up.
