There’s some very interesting information to be had in one of the little conversations that you can drop in on after the end of this week’s 9.1 campaign, as we get our first hints at where we might be going in the next patch! Spoilers ahead.
There's some very interesting information to be had in one of the little conversations that you can drop in on after the end of this week's 9.1 campaign, as we get our first hints at where we might be going in the next patch! Spoilers ahead.
As spotted by micwini, Tal-Galan and Ve'nari have a little chat in Korthia and from it we might have actually found out the name of the new 9.2 zone, with the attendant mentioning "Zereth Mortis", and our favorite broker commenting that it's the realm of the First Ones.

Ve'nari: Greetings, my friend.
Tal-Galan: Friend? The elusive Ve'nari has no friends.
Ve'nari: I have been woefully misrepresented! I can be a good friend, a useful friend, to those in need. And everyone is in need of something.
Tal-Galan: You more than most, from what I hear. In fact, I imagine this conversation is merely a pretext for you to inquire what I know of Zereth Mortis.
Ve'nari: Do you not long to see the realm of the First Ones for yourself?
Tal-Galan: One day, perhaps. If the Purpose wills it.
We know the Jailer is headed to the Sepulcher of the First ones, and it's safe to presume it's located in the new 9.2 zone, so having their sepulcher in their realm makes a lot of sense, and so Zereth Mortis may just be the next zone we travel to in the Shadowlands!
The name of the zone itself has already sparked a lot of discussion, as Wowhead spotted, with "Zereth" actually meaning "keystone/cornerstone" in the language of the First Ones, and "Mortis", well... yea. The big conspiracy theory making the rounds at the moment, however, is a bit of a stretch, as "Zereth" kind of sounds like A-zereth aka A-zerOth. Yep, that's where we're at, one of the theories is that Zereth Mortis is actually Azeroth/somewhere on Azeroth and that 9.2 might take place somewhere on our planet. Do with that one as you will.
