There will be an overarching story, it just won't be of the "Azeroth's effed up the bum" variety. We saved the world. Let us enjoy it for once.That said, Ulduar's story really DID tie into the Lich King's story. It's easy to miss the tie-in to the Lich King because it's hidden away in Yogg-Saron's fight, which was all kinds of hard back in the day. In the fight, you could see one of three visions (Garona murdering Llane, the creation of the Demon Soul, and the Lich King breaking an immolated champion.) The last threw speculation into overdrive. Who was this guy? Was it Bolvar? He's alive? He's being broken by the Lich King? Will he be a raid boss? Most chilling, though, was that it was Yogg-Saron's vision, and so it was clear that he had a hand in it.The Twilight of the Aspects book also expounds on this: every single atrocity, perhaps all of history in Azeroth, has been one long and giant conspiracy by some invisible hand. Old Gods have been running history, and Ulduar's purpose was to put perspective to the Lich King's threat. He is a pawn, an insect compared to this horrible looming threat that has been manipulating all of the races of Azeroth for millenia. Ulduar's purpose was to show that the Lich King (and Deathwing) was merely an instrument, a stepping stone to a much larger plan. It will all lead to this epic confrontation. And next time, we will not interfere! (That's what they're planning at least.)
