ive always stuck to the idea of the Maelstrom being the next expansion. All of the 'missing' zones in Azeroth are coastal, and there are numerous islands around the maelstrom to open up.I also dont think that the maelstrom itself is underwater. Ive always pictured it as, well, a maelstrom: a giant giant giant whirlpool in the middle of the ocean. I think Zin'Ashari is visible and 'open air' at the bottom of this whirlpool. So while youre in the city you have this giant wall of water swirling around you.With regards to new playable races... i think goblins and, wait for it, pandaren would be made playable. (quit your whining, Pandaren WERE a joke; but they are now a part of the lore. China objected to the fact that their national symbol had been mixed with japanese culture... the panda were dressed as samurais. but then they were altered to be more chinese in style... so no more problem).So the pandaren would join the alliance (dwarven links) and a faction of goblins would join the horde. "BUT THEYRE NEUTRAL" i hear you cry.... well would your nation remain neutral if the naga rose up from the ocean and swarmed onto your islands? no. you would make allies VERY quickly.I think two coastal zones would open up, the horde and alliance head on in to see whats happened, and stumble on the naga, in droves (FINALLY WITH NEW VARIED MODELS I HOPE). The zones quests would lead them to cross the ocean to a selection of islands: a troll island, sargeras' tomb islands.... etc. culminating at Undermine where the bulk of neutral goblins would be at war with the naga. we sort them out and then head north into the maelstrom itself.All in all about 8 zones.... plus more maybe....

I highly doubt the Goblins would make allies that quickly, the Goblines are the greedy money making type, if they joined the horde, they would worry about the Alliance profit, so they would most likely not join any faction, but being that the Goblines are neutral, both Alliance and Horde if asked would most likely help them.
