panel, the mystery of the Kul Tiras tentacle armor was solved.
The armor the Sea Priests wear in the panel screenshot looks very similar to the datamined Kul Tiras armor:
A close up of this armor reveals that the maps are surrounded by menacing-looking tentacles...and as we'll cover in the section below, N'Zoth is an Old God believed to be imprisoned in the ocean.

we learned that the Freehold outlaws were big on tentacle motifs, even using them as their flag. Thanks to Paryah for the tip.
We learned at the end of the

panel that Queen Azshara would be a future raid boss.
, Blizzard revealed that N'Zoth was responsible for turning Azshara and her loyal Highborne into Naga.
There are also several Legion hints pointing to an N'Zoth apearance. Several Il'gynoth whispers relate to him:
Il'gynoth whispers: N'zoth... I journey... to Ny'alotha...
Il'gynoth whispers: To find him, drown yourself in the circle of stars.
The first whisper references Ny'alotha, N'Zoth's city of madness. The second whisper appears to relate to N'Zoth because he's underwater.
a circle of stars visible from the Maelstrom, but if it's uncertain if it relates to N'Zoth because past information points to N'Zoth in Vash'jir.
Xal'atath also has a whisper about N'Zoth:
Xal'atath whispers: The God of the Deep writhes in his prison, breaking free ever so slowly. You should hurry and defeat the fallen titan... there are greater battles yet to fight.
It's been widely speculated that N'Zoth is in an underwater prison in Vash'jir, based on data like

In the short story
"A Thousand Years of War,"
we explore Alleria's familiarity with the Void and get some hints about the Old Gods. In this excerpt, Alleria envisions herself pledging loyalty to N'Zoth, the One Who Slumbers.
More visions. Possible futures. She saw Xe'ra, the Mother of Light, declaring her a heretic and calling for her death. She saw her blood on Turalyon's sword. She saw Arator calling an army of paladins to hunt her down, only to fall with her arrows in his throat. She saw herself kneeling before the One Who Slumbers beneath Azeroth's waves. She saw herself killing it and taking its place, leading a throng of horrors to consume every nation.
The influence of the Void continues in Battle for Azeroth with the addition of the Void Elf Allied Race. Perhaps there will be more Old God references in their heritage story:
Many have sought to harness the corruptive magic of the Void. Most who tried have fallen into madness. Determined to use this power for the good of Azeroth, Alleria Windrunner is the first mortal to succeed at defying the shadow's whispers. Coming to the aid of a group of her kin who nearly gave in to the darkness, Alleria has vowed to train these Void Elves to control the shadows within them and pledge their newfound powers to the Alliance.
, the currency for the Heart of Azeroth, was created when Sargeras threw his sword into Silithus, leading Azeroth's life essence to bleed out. Silithus is a place of great significance for the Black Empire and the Old Gods--it is the location of C'Thun's prison and where the Black Empire battled.
This is alluded to in Zidormi text allowing you to swap between versions of Silithus:
Zone includes a former Titan facility where the Titans were experimenting with Old Gods and their magics. From the
So there is a facility in Nazmir, where the Titans were doing experiments on Old gods. They were trying to solve the Old god problem; and you can imagine when you start experimenting on an Old god, really bad stuff has the potential to happen. What they ended up creating was something far worse; and this sorta new blood god — who you are going to see eventually (and this a huge amount of spoiler for you), but this facility only has one of the three seals remaining on it.
Legions of Old Gods attacked Voldun many years ago. the Zandalari have used it as a place to send their unwanted criminals.
