I was watching the cinematics tying into the landings of both factions and I couldn't help but draw some parallels.

Horde landing: Guadalcanal.
Alliance landing: Iwo Jima.


Varian reaction will be Hiroshima and Nagasaki together. At once.

I decided to embrance the whole pregnant vampire DK thing.


Ah.

I'm not allowed back in my basket weaving class.


Was it underwater basket weaving?

I like some of the reader comments on that site.

"New theory:

After Garrosh "kills" Anduin, we retrieve the body, only for it to explode and regenerate.
That's right. Anduin goes all Time Lord up in this lore!"

I lol'ed hard.

After talking about this a bit, my tinfoil hat theory.

Bluseside, in Krasarang Wilds we learn the besides the overall Alliance missive, the Night Elves are there to find the "Beacon of great Light" that Tyrande keeps having visions of. One questline later you find some powers that the Mogu used, which doesn't restore immortality like that one Elf hoped, but just transfers life. In the end he sacrifices himself and transfers his life force into his daughter to save her.

In the blue panda city there, Anduin is standing right next to that very Elf. So he or his party would know of this magic by now I'd think. Someone is going to have to transfer their life into Anduin to save him.

Garrosh Hellscream is a hero.

...

...to the orcs.

Look at his speech. His main objective is to find the orcs a land that they can call their own that isn't a resourceless desert. He wants a vibrant land with resources to call home and believes he can ally with the Pandaren to make it happen (even if he'd likely make them second-class citizens in their own land).

His main affections are for his own people, the orcs, and he wants them to have better. This is actually one of the most consistent parts of his character. He challenged Thrall over leadership because of how his vision of the orcish people differed, he invaded Ashenvale hoping to move the Horde capital there where they'd have resources... and now he's eying Pandaria. He wants the orcs (and their allies) to live somewhere fruitful where they can be happy. What stands in the way? The Alliance. How can he beat them? Well... he thinks the Sha energy can be his trump card. Afterall, this is the guy who has continually evolved his strategy to stay ahead of the alliance. Magnataur, proto-drakes, kraken, mana bombs... these innovations have always benefited him. And Sha energy? He actually seems (right now) to have some control over it and by extension his emotions, which I have to say was pretty interesting.

Now for Anduin. If the speculation is correct and he's dead... that's shocking. However, with the pools available to the alliance and a future chapter of the Wrathion story being entitled 'The Two Princes', I doubt he's dead for long. But if he is...

Anduin is Velen's protege for a reason. the Prophet thinks Anduin is going to lead the Army of Light. So what would happen if Azeroth's savior and the leader of the Army of Light dies before the Legion can invade? Gotta say that I believe that could be a very good storyline.

I miss the days when there was moral ambiguity to the story of this game. The whole good guys vs. bad guys era that Garrosh ushered in is far too Everquest for my liking.

And there's my speculation if we get a Garrosh-redemption thing. But yeah, I wasn't really looking forward to him being sha-infested, although given the theme of corruption the game already has that's not surprising.

That said, I honestly wasn't expecting this either. Killing Anduin? Talk about making it personal.

He's talking to the player.

Anyway, unrelated to your post:

"Decent reasoning, except Garrosh has already committed a nuclear atrocity, and Alliance player's emotions have been escalated for years now.

Anduin is the namesake of ol' Lothar, and embodies the spirit of the Alliance in a way that thematically fits. He's bee built up perfectly to take over when Varian bites the bullet, and do things a thousand times better than Varian could ever hope to.

If he dies this way and stays dead, I suspect WoW has replaced all it's writers with Hozen.
If he comes back to life, I suspect they replaced their writers with WWE writers."

I think you are on to something here!

I would just clarify that the elf standing next to Anduin in 7 Stars is not the very same one who used the water from the Mogu Pools of Youth to transfer his own life to his dead daughter, but he was a member of the group. I am afraid that the name of the elf who sacrificed himself to save his daughter escapes me, but Magister Xintar, the elf standing with Anduin, is/was the vendor in the Krasarang night elf encampments. Since he is both a night elf and a Magister, one can possibly assume he is a Highborne who is working with the Kaldorei group.

Probably something to do with the group of warlocks (Their name escapes me), they have some tie to the story. Two of em headed to the black temple if I remember correctly

Also we gotta bring Illidan back to life for some reason.

I'm still glad Garrosh is maintaining PART of his character, I guess. The whole survival of his people was a pretty big part of it.

Honestly though I'd still rather play Horde than Alliance. Better to be the faction who HAS some darkness in them rather than the benevolent Alliance that never fails and stands for truth justice and hats.
