From the time that Cataclysm was announced and I saw the previews of Vashjr, I predicted that Azshara would be the main villain of the fourth expansion. They reintroduced us to the naga backstory throughout Vashjr, Azshara makes a cameo in a quest in Darkshore, and now she's center stage in one of the 4.3 five-man dungeons... I figured that when they dropped the Abyssal Maw raid and cut Neptulon's story line short, they were just saving it for the next expansion so they could give it the time and detail it deserved. I was SO convinced before Blizzcon that we'd see an Azshara-centric expansion announced.And then we got MoP instead, and I was rather befuddled. So I do hope that she gets the spotlight at some point. With Arthas and Deathwing out of the way, Azshara is pretty much the most powerful enemy in Azeroth who isn't an Old God. She deserves some major time in the spotlight someday. Plus, there's a shortage of major female villains in WoW (Onyxia, Magatha, the younger Van Cleef, and Sylvannas are the only ones that come to mind.)

Yeah, that's what I originally thought, too. Sort of like a "Cataclysm, Part Two", focusing on Azshara and some more of the 'forgotten' islands like Kul'Tiras, Tel'abim and Zul'Dare. Of course, that's all still available for the future.
