I would say that "Mists" in this context implies an unknown frontier, something hazy and not well understood. It's a classical visual metaphor; travellers who have struck out into the wilderness will often end up in a misty climate to really show "They have no idea where they are." If this is a WoW expansion, it could be an indicator that we're striking off into lands unknown.Of course, why does it have to be WoW software? Why couldn't it be a completely separate Warcraft game?

I wanted to mention this as well, as the article states that the "Mist" could refer to the Kvaldir and the involvement of Azshara when I had never thought of it like that. It is a great connection, and the "Mist" would certainly play well to anybody regardless of their lore knowledge just because it's connection with the unknown. It gives Blizzard a chance to flex their creative muscles again and come up with another expansion similar to The Burning Crusade - which many fans refer to as the pinnacle of WoW expansions - and bounce back from the "stale" or "rehashed" feeling many players are struggling with right now.
