This ties in nicely with a theory I just posted on The Queue, so I'll repost it here.One of the major content patches will feature Nazjatar as a raid, with Queen Azshara as the boss. The evidence for this:-Her direct appearance in Darkshore-Reintegration of the Shen'dralar, formerly her greatest mages, into Night Elf society-Her most trusted aide, Xavius, recently made himself known and was subsequently defeated in the Emerald Dream-The very strong presence of the Naga, under orders of Azshara to attack Vashj'ir, a former Highbourne city.Also, yes I know that Blizz once stated that Azshara were not intended to be part of the expansion and she'd likely get an expansion to herself, but plans change and they could've been purposefully misleading people. Recall they also said that we wouldn't be fighting the Lich King until level 100 or so.

Azshara is more powerful than Neltharion (Mannoroth commented that she rivaled even the lord of the Legion and that was when she was still a night elf) and so she would easily be the final boss of the next expansion.

Well, I did say one of the patches. Who says the final boss of the expansion has to be the dude on the box? Maybe Azshara will be the final boss of Cataclysm. It would make a certain amount of sense, given that we're going to her neighbourhood (the Maelstrom) this expansion, and it would certainly be an interesting plot twist (for example, having to team up with Deathwing to defeat the bigger threat that is Queen Azshara).

Blizzard has already said multiple times ever since the end of TBC that they aren't going to screw up and make the main boss of the expansion not the final boss of the expansion again. Deathwing also would definitely never team up with the mortals of the planet.

That's not the mistake they wanted to correct. The problem with Illidan was that it really wasn't clear until players got into Black Temple that he actually was a major villain, his influence throughout Outland was portrayed poorly, and he was also knocked out too quickly, still near the beginning of the expansion. But remember, WoW is not Buffy. There doesn't need to be a single Big Bad that inevitably gets permanently defeated in the season finale. That just sounds way too predictable.

Well whatever makes you feel better. :p

I wouldn't say that Azshara is more powerful than Deathwing. . .

4.0 Raid: 2 Elemental Lords + Bastion of Twilight4.1 Raid: ? (Old god?)4.2 Raid: CoT:War of the Acients(deathwing goes crazy, Azshara becomes Naga, first glimpse of Sargeras)4.3 Raid: DeathwingAzshara=Great sea xpac IMO (Revisit Kezan, Zandalar, Kul'Tiras, Broken Ilses, Naga capital, old god under maelstrom, etc)We are getting out of WC3 stuff, Villains and Protagonists need to be introduced in the expantion prior, since less people know the deeper lore.

i doubt a CoT raid would be a solo raid in any tier of content, maybe foundless, but it doesn't seem like a good idea for blizz to center a whole tier on a wing of a cave.so...4.1 bastion of twilight4.2 CoT and old god4.3 ashara4.4 deathwingand i agree with folk who have said sargeras will be the last intended boss of the game, it just makes way too much sense. and that'll prolly be when we hit level 100 ( just to make it a nice round number ). that siad, that probably leaves 2 MAYBE 3 expansions between now and then.emerald dream and fully taking care of the old gods would be a good expansion in themselvesleaving the last one an all out offensive on the burning leigon. probably using some of those extra portals in outland or something, who knows?

Actually, more like this:4.0: Cho'gall, Air Lord (Al'akir), Neltharion4.1: Firelands (Ragnaros), War of the Ancients4.2: Old God (?) / Something Else4.3: Deathwing / Something elseThey said they dont want to do just one raid in a patch again, because that is just f'ing annoying.
