When Leyara says "I don't believe it! I seared the life from your body!", it makes me think there is some kinda meaning behind it... whats up with that?

It is interesting to note that he was definitely dead after Leyara was through with him. 0/3.7 million HP, level ??? corpse, etc, and since we got him back we've been inundating him with fire elemental crap to help him heal in exchange for gold and marks. And we all know how much Blizzard loves the corrupted hero trope....

I thought that was odd, too. I sincerely hope he hasn't been possessed by an Old God or something. It would be like John Locke and the Smoke Monster all over again, and I don't think I can take the pain of losing another nature-loving old man to an evil entity.

Ilmyrn: I got that same sense of dread when I read that bit.That would be ... uncool.

It's Sargaras. His spirit found a new home and used all those scales and elemental hearts to prepaid the new body for handling his power. Or, she was just wrong...

There must always be a Ragnaros!

Yes, he was defintely dead after the Leyara encounter, but, you know, the wonders of the Emerald Dream and the forces therein are manifold and beyond our grasp - especially for those who have such strong ties to it like Hamuul Runetotem. ;)

Well, she did alot of damage. But druids DO have "Revive" as an out of combat rezz now. It's okay if he dies. (I'm being slightly silly, but there -are- examples of rezzes being used in context of the game. Like the shaman leader of the Taunka using some sort of mass rezz to raise his men again against the Nerubians in his village in Dragonblight). So it wouldn't be totally surprising to argue that the druids got there in time to rezz him but he was so damaged that they're still having to use unique methods of healing him. I'm not going to go conspiracy theory yet. :)

Yeah, if you're going to accept that he was "dead" because his health was 0, then you also have to accept that he can be rez'd.Otherwise you have to accept that it was a plot device that interacted with a game mechanic.Or you can assume he was at .2 health and the meter rounded down...

Honestly, I don't think there's any sort of conspiracy either. I think Blizz just wanted his survival to be a pleasant surprise to players and cheated a bit. If they'd actually had to (story-wise) resurrect him, I imagine that would have been mentioned in quest text.

"I can't believe it, how did you survive? What pact with the divine saved you from my fiery wrath!""lol, soulstone"

I wouldn't be surprised if Hamuul ends up being a flame druid of some sort, only a "good-guy" version of one
