@PazuzuWouldn't it be nice if the Sha were constructs summoned by the Mogu in their effort to retake Pandaria. We know nothing about the lore here, but the Mogu appear to be fallen Titan constructs. Why not allow the Sha to be some sort of construct/curse they created to drive others off of the continent in order to 'keep the peace.' I already fully anticipate 'the Mantids are servants of the Old Gods, oh noes' to be the story of their section of the continent, and it seems that the Zandalari have been swayed that way as well (what else could give Jin-Do the power to enslave Hakkar?). In Burning Crusade the chief villain was Illidan, who was supplanted by Kael and his mad alliance with Kil'Jaeden. The Old Gods were mentioned in the Arcatraz - and it was implied there that even the Legion is their creation (or at best pretenders to their throne... you know... of evil). In Lich King, a Demon made construct (the disembodied Ner'Zhul) claimed his independence by becoming the erstwhile God of Death, and Ulduar made it seem that he might also have been pondering a crazy alliance with the Old Gods - or at least Yogg Saron. Then in Cataclysm we know that the primary foe has been N'Zoth manipulating Deathwing - who in turn was commanding Cho'Gall, Nefarian, Sinestra, Ragnaros, and Al'Akir - and Ashzara - who now possesses Neptulon and possibly control over the domain of water.What I am getting at here is that the Old Gods are implied everywhere - in the Twisting Nether (BC), in Northrend (WotLK), and the Twilights Hammer (Cata) - yet put in only token appearances. I guess what I am after is a storyline that might not be influenced so directly by them. I accept that they will always be a presence and be an ultimate big bad down the road, but Pandaria seems to be giving them plenty of space to do dire things. Couldn't we get something not Old God related with the Sha? I would also accept a story in which they ACTUALLY DO THINGS aside from whispering. It might be nice to learn more of their secrets rather than killing the things that do and have gone mad before we can learn anything at all. WoW's halflife is probably coming (if it has not already passed), and while seven years has been great it might be nice to get some answers now instead of more riddles. Otherwise I hope they take a back seat for a while and let us get some new experiences under our belt for the next round.
