A response to the question regarding C'thun.We didn't actually kill C'thun, no we just stopped him from re-entering Azeroth, so we might see C'thun later in the game, except without a eye. As for Yogg-Sarron, I don't know what we are doing with him, maybe staple his mouth shut or something iunno...

Lobotomy. It's his brain we're fighting.

I'd like to see one who has ever disected an Old God and can really tell just how much and what organs they have. Thousand maws? Gazillions of tentacles? HUGE body mass? Possibly multiple amount of brains? It is more likely than you think. They are outside the circle of mortality.

And in the WoW-verse, as in most fantasy settings, life and death is not a simple binary state. It's more of a spectrum of modes of existence going from "eternal cosmic one-ness" on one end, to "total unbeing in time and all dimensions" on the other; with a near infinite number of options inbetween (including "alive" and "dead").The higher a being's "power level", the more points of existence become available on this spectrum. A simple peasant can can be described as "alive" or "dead" (or "undead"). But asking if Saregas, C'thun, the Lich King, etc. are "alive" or "dead" is just too simplistic a question.

Maybe you missed the recent WoWInsider article previewing the latest chapter of the WoW Comic which confirmed the players killed C'thun. He's dead. Bad mojo happens, because he is definitly dead. We poked out his eye, and the trauma finished him off. And with C'thun dead, why wouldn't we kill another? Apparently Blizz is throwing out the whole "killing the Old Gods=Azeroth destroyed" lore, so we can kill all of them. No one's immune to raid death.

I don't like the comic and refuse to believe it. My personal preference, and I am not the only one. When Metzen really states that, I will believe it. Until then, I have my fingers in my ears and I am shouting "LALALALALA!".

I refuse to accept comics and books lore point of view. They are more some "spin-off"/"this could have happened like this" stories. "Actual" Lore is in-game Lore. Others are theorical, even if convincing and elaborated...

Just because we killed his mortal shell does not mean he isn't still alive in some form or another. Just look at cenarius, who is still alive and kicking in the emerald dream helping malfurion stem off the nightmare, despite the fact the warsong killed him.Don't forget what Herald Volazj says in Old Kingdom -"Ywaq maq oou; ywaq maq ssaggh. Ywaq ma shg'fhn."("They do not die; they do not live. They are outside the cycle.")
