What comes after the Void Lords?

General Discussion
There's some pretty heavy speculation that next expansion, we are /finally/ going to defeat the void lords and the light will reign supreme (this was also alluded to in the anduin post-varian's-death lore comic, showing that some time in the future, the void lords are defeated AND Anduin is alive... yep, he's not dying anytime soon).

But what then? The void lords are the "ultimate enemy of WoW".

So... unless that comic gets retconned, what will the future expansions be like?

Wanderers of Unicorn Isle?
Peace in Azeroth: The petbattling expansion?
Warcraft IV: Dating sim in a peaceful world?
Perhaps a new Alliance v. Horde expansion?

What do you guys think?
Azeroth wakes up and we all die.
Anduin becomes a new Void lord hopefully.

Magni, Mekkatorque, and Moira seize control of the Alliance establishing a new law that no leadership positions can be filled by anyone taller than 5 feet.

You beat the game.

Warcraft 4 gets announced, and WoW ends development. Warcraft 4 takes place years after events of last expansion. After Warcraft 4 and its expansion get released and been out for awhile, WoW 2 gets announced and the cycles repeats.
The Light.

As we kill the Void Lords, the balance between Light and Darkness is disrupted and it threatens to destroy the physical universe.

So we must kill the Light Lords to save ourselves.

Are we talking Chryssalids? If so, I need to reroll to fire mage.
We find that Hogger was an astral projection of Azeroth's dormant soul. We all die, servers are wiped, and the game ends the way it should.
That Hogger guy keeps coming back, an expansion exploring his origins and how to truly end him might be worth it.
It took 13 years for us to finally fight the legion, we aren't fighting the Void Gods any time soon.
There can always be a new threat. They have already established there are many different worlds out there so they can pretty much dream up anything they want.

There is also the possibility of more to explore on the far side of Azeroth. Perhaps another continent with a Dark Secret and Savage races/beasts... (OOooo Scary!)

Not every expansion needs to build off already established lore it is ok to make something completely new every now and then.
Likely something to do with Bolivar. There was a lot of foreshadowing in the class mount quests.
Millhouse.

He's up to something...

It will be an xpac of epic hockey games and great beer.
We then continue to recycle villains to use as future plot devices.

We already brought back Illidan.

Next we bring Kael'thas, Arthas, Deathwing, Garosh, etc.


It never ends.

We will be as gods, and thus will turn on each other.
