I would be astounded if we had a Legion-themed expansion where neither the Naaru nor the Titans play a role. And like I said, we've used unconventional means to beat every single expansion final boss to date, so it's not like we couldn't do the same with Sargeras.
Except Arthas with whom Ashbringer and the Light had a major role, we didnt defeat any major Legion villains. Kiljadeen was pushed back, thats all. That was not even his full power. Archimonde destroyed the entire city with a single spell. We would definitely need some un conventional help and we would have to work for it. I dont see this all happening in a single expac.
And also, do and of u think the scourge will have a role to play in all this? We do know the Lich King did not unleash the full power of the scourge. So i can see the Legion trying to take control of the scourge or something like that. Opinions on this?
Look man, its not that the Lich King was holding back the scourge, because i mean really? Arthas wanting to take over the world and remake it in undeath and NOT letting them run rampant for what reason lets say... what was it, that small part of Arthas left in him? No, it wasnt that, that is the biggest shoot yourself in the foot scenario.
Arthas didnt not unleash the scourge to its full potential, he kept the millions of undead all around azeroth in check, because he needed them as a mobilized army, you cant defeat strategy with lack of strategy, you still need a chain of command and multiple masses of generals and officers to control the soldiers and perform the menial tasks that you as the biggest baddest higher up cant do because your not everywhere at once.
Remember that quest in Drakari? where you become a ghoul to go undercover in the scourge and extract information for the take down of that troll drakuru. You as a lowly ghoul still needed to give orders to other soldier scourge and FEED them guts you were given from an abom.
What blizzard always meant is that the scourge would possibly indeed wipe out all of life if possibly let off the chain, but then that would also mean that they could fail doing it too due to lack of command and screwing up arthas's big picture for his 'kingdom'.
Imagine it, you as a single faction are facing off against Azeroth's two MAIN most powerful standing factions SOLO, the last thing you'd want is for your forces to be mindless and scattered, possibly turning on each other or dispersing and not being able to fight back effectively which is, what they did do to us, while we WERE fighting them.
