Now that "World of Warcraft: Legion," the sixth expansion set for the popular MMORPG, has been out for nearly four months, many gamers are done with the available content and are already looking forward to the seventh expansion set for the game. Though it will probably be another couple of years until fans get their hands on the next expansion set for "World of Warcraft," this hasn't stopped ardent fans of the popular MMORPG from speculating on what's ahead.

In a new video, YouTube user BellularGaming lays out the possible settings and storylines for the next "World of Warcraft" expansion. According to the YouTuber, the next expansion set for "WoW" could pit players against N'Zoth. The least powerful of the Old Gods of Azeroth, N'Zoth is the only one of the four evil Old Gods who has yet to appear in "World of Warcraft." If the character finally makes his presence felt in an upcoming expansion, BellularGaming suggests that it could be set in existing Azeroth zones. Alternatively, players may finally be able to visit the other side of Azeroth, which has remained unexplored to this day.

There is also speculation that the next "World of Warcraft" expansion could have players exploring the origins of the Titans and battling the Void Lords. The Titans are the god-like, planet-sized beings who formed and brought order to the various worlds in the Great Dark Beyond. The Void Lords, their villainous counterparts, are monsters built from shadow energy. They exist in the Void and are intent on devouring everything in the universe. 

Meanwhile, the Nostalrius private servers, brought back to life by the Elysium Project, are returning on Saturday, Dec. 17. As "World of Warcraft" fans recall, Blizzard sent the Nostalrius team a cease-and-desist letter earlier this year. A "vanilla" "World of Warcraft" server, Nostalrius imitates the original game but supports more than 10,000 players simultaneously. EuroGamer says that the Nostalrius servers will be back at 12 p.m. EST on Saturday. "World of Warcraft" gamers who have played either Nostalrius or Elysium should be able to see their characters on either server again when they log in. On Tuesday, Dec. 13, the Nostalrius Begins Twitter account announced that 25,000 accounts have already successfully generated tokens.
