In my opinion the next expansion will be a return to Azeroth. Not only because of #7's post but also because of what is happening right now.Let's see, Blue says it doesn't want to empty Azeroth, but azeroth is indeed empty! People will speed level until 58 and then go to the Outlands as there is nothing else to do or someone to do it with. That means that people will still go to BRD, LBRS and then only as leveling instances because there will be no followup to the quests. Once they reach 58 they will fight the good/bad fight in the Outlands. Which is consistent with a desire to move the story forward: Ragnaros has been regularly killed for the last two years... so has Nefarian and, to a lesser extent, Kel'thuzad.The story has to move forward and maybe the next expansion is focused on returning to Azeroth, maybe due to another full fleged Burning Legion invasion... Maybe, and give me a break for i don't know much about the lore, Illidan was somehow stopping the BL of invading Azeroth again and as he is slayed by players that opens the doors again for an invasion.That's for the lore, in-game we would see a revamp of some areas and, more important, a recycle of the instances. Blue could put an instance option in adition of heroic, which is the version you want to run but we would have new BRD, LBRS, MC, Strat, Scholo that would reflect an azeroth on fire and brimstone. So we would have new areas and new instances and i don't think it would be hard to accomplish. New areas and new versions of instances would be locked to the players who wouldn't upgrade and the changes in order to turn azeroth in a world on fire would be quite easy from a technical point of vue.I would like that.Anroth
