Default Choose an Expansion Concept!

Well, Legion's still three months away, and I never did get to finish Age of Azshara due to Legion getting announced sooner than I thought it would, so I thought I'd do another of my fan expansions here and on Blizzplanet. But I have four different ideas. Which one would you all most be interested in hearing about?

World of Warcraft: Age of Azshara
-Remake of my original idea to fit in with Legion's lore.
-New continent: The Maelstrom
-New neutral race: Naga
-New hero class: Tinker
-Command your own ship
-Rebuild and customize your capital cities: Boralus and the Uberzepplin

World of Warcraft: The Hand of Zul
-Following their defeat in Pandaria, the Zandalari have grown desperate. The Loa have abandoned them, and now Zul seeks to unite the disparate races of Azeroth into an army, The Hand of Zul, to rival the Alliance and Horde.
-New Continent: Zandalar
-New Alliance Race: High Elf
-New Horde Race: Zandalari Troll
-Dynamic zones, establish towns, have them be captured by enemies, and retake them!

World of Warcraft: Beneath Azeroth
-Deep below the world's crust, an unfathomable evil is gestating. The nerubians and Kel'thuzad's reborn Cult of the Damned seek to birth a new Old God finally corrupt the nascent world soul within Azeroth.
-New Continent: Azjol-Nerub
-New Alliance Race: Vrykul
-New Horde Race: Mogu
-Followers as BioWare or Diablo III style companions

World of Warcraft: Vengeance of the Void
-To the south of Outland rests the shattered remnants of Goria, birthplace of ogre-kind. A terrible, all consuming maw has been opened her by the reckless Imperator Gor'vidus, and threatens to unleash the Void upon all of creation.
-New Continent: Goria
-New Alliance Race: Ethereal
-New Horde Race: Ogre
-Establish a homestead on Goria

They all sound cool, but I don't know how they will fit any more continents between Kalimdor and EK. I'll go with Goria, since it not only could add more to Draenor's lore, but I love me some Ethereals and Ogres as playable. (Although I'd go for Ogres:Horde, Arrakoa: Alliance, Ethereals: Neutral)

Based on the races, Azshara = Void > Azeroth > Zul.

I might want playable high elves on the Alliance, but it doesn't seem fair if the Horde gets a new race that doesn't share its models with an Alliance race.

Updated Worgen and Goblin models would be a great feature.

In what may surprise some, I'm not going to vote for the Hand of Zul suggestion, but rather for Age of Azshara.

In part because with the exception of the Ethereal suggested for Vengeance of the Void, none of the proposed new races elicit any sort of enthusiasm from me. It also happens the Naga actually do interest me.

And because I'm an outspoken fan of Warcraft's Trolls, I find myself having to shoot down any idea that includes them, since Blizzard's demonstrated they've no idea what to do with them if it doesn't involve killing them off, and creating a second playable Troll faction would all but guarantee they'd both see their development come to a screeching halt and never be touched again.

Plus I kinda want to see the Uberzeppelin.

I think that the Naga work better as minor antagonists in each expansion. They are all over the oceans so taking care of them and shattering them in one single underwater continent makes little sense to me.

How about an expansion on the Moon? Like, the Titans could have built a gigantic observatory for a few constellars like Algalon.
Zones could be a gigantic foundry, an oversized aquarium, a metal forest, a desert around the observatory and stuff like that.

But otherwise, I'd probably go with either the underground or void expansions.

Beneath Azeroth, with Vengeance of the Void as runner up. Age of Azshara sounds alright. No offense, but your race picks for hand of Zul don't interest me.

I'd like to see Beneath Azeroth expansion. Wrath did not go as far as it could have with the Nerubians and it was a shame. Bringing them back would be great plus Kel'thuzad is still out there. I like Mogu a lot too and to a lesser degree the Vrykul.

No new races please, especially not Naga. Otherwise, Age of Azshara sounds most interesting.

But how will I be able to survive without race changing to a new race?

Hate to be that guy whos talking about something not on the list but damn do I want an expansion where we take back K'aresh and each zone is a giant city in the desert. Not necessarily ruined cities either, cities that are alive, and dangerous with very little law and order. Quests involving smuggling, being hired as thugs or bandits. We bring in a goblin to be our Khadgar for the expansion, except instead of being some magical god hes there to become a political and economical power to gain resources and allies for the army of light or w/e.

Tough choices. I'd most like either a Beneath Azeroth-style expansion done in a Journey to the Center of the Earth kind of way with Dwarves and Gnomes leading the Alliance effort/expedition/offensive/etc. OR a South Seas/Azshara expac, if only so we can finally wrap up that character's story and off her for good.

Alternatively, exploring the "Dark Side of Azeroth" (unknown lands) would be cool but only if it was less Mists of Pandaria and more Invasion of Kalimdor.

The inclusion of High Elves made the choice very easy, The Hand of Zul all the way, otherwise I'd prefer Azshara.

Although I really like high elves I'm going to vote Beneath Azeroth (although I think it could go with some other name) because I don't think the Horde would get Zandalari as a race.
