I like this, I like it a lot.We all know that the Old Gods are manipulating the mortal races, and we already know that they are manipulating Deathwing.And to what end? Well, that's pretty obvious as well. They're prisoned. Before the Sundering they were all trapped. Their whisperings the Neltharion were the first step to a much greater plan of freedom.You see, Neltharion was the Aspect of Earth. He is literally the jailor of the Old Gods. This is why he was their first target. He is closer to them, and he is the reason they can't break free.The Sundering could very easily because caused by the Old God's schemes, as was the Shattering. The Shattering however, is a different goal. The Sundering was a means to weaken the bonds that bind them, the Shattering, however, is possibly their scheme to get their Jailor killed, by inciting the insane aspect to fully threaten their world.I need to look deeper into this way of thinking. As we all know, the forests of Lorderon whispered the name, Arthas. Possibly a sign that he was being manipulated before his birth. Likewise Illidan was imprisoned for 10,000 years in the Barrow dens, with only Maiv for company. Maybe those two have been manipulated as well. However, off hand, I can't see to what end, but it is potentially a very interesting theory if it doesn't become too far fetched.

This is the part where I cry for an edit button, only to secretly know that it's my own damn fault for not proof reading before adding my comment.Sorry for the crappy English in that post. Hopefully some of you can read around it.
"The forests of Lordaeron whispered the name, Arthas" was almost certainly not a literal thing, but just a narrative flourish on Terenas' part.But I like the rest of your thoughts.

What if it wasn't a narrative flourish? I mean, he may think it was, but what if it felt that way and like the right thing to say because it really was happening? The plot thickens.Duh-duh-duuuuh.

As I read the last paragraph of your post, a thought came to mind (not whispered to me, however). I have a feeling that soon we'll be seeing a lot of"I don't know, therefore: Old Gods."(http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ancient-aliens)
