The "pentacle" / "elder sign" theory is far from a new one, and has existed... at least a few years.The big problem with it is that it's based on some old theories that were completely disproven in Cataclysm. For example, the creature believed to be an Old God at the Master's Glaive is not an Old God, but rather one of their minions.Anne places N'Zoth there, but that is honestly probably not where N'Zoth is located. All of the hints in Cataclysm, and from the creators at various panels over the last two years, and even the new instances in 4.3, hint that N'Zoth is located in or around the Maelstrom itself, likely in a sunken city called Ny'alotha.N'Zoth is responsible for creating the Emerald Nightmare. The Emerald Nightmare's place of origin is the Rift of Aln, where Malfurion felt a great evil (Stormrage). The Rift of Aln is believed to be directly connected to the Rift in the Maelstrom.The Rift in the Maelstrom is where the Well of Eternity used to be located. It's where Azshara heard the whispers and made the bargain with an Old God to transform herself and the Highborne into Naga.And it's implied that the various Old God minions helping out Deathwing in 4.3 are absolutely loyal to N'Zoth, to the extent that they once waged war against C'Thun and Yog-Sarron, when the Old Gods had their own conflict in the distant past.More importantly, if old lore proves true, one of the original five Old Gods of Azeroth was already killed by the Titans. Which leaves us with only one Old God remaining after N'Zoth.With the possibility that Pandaria is a prison for an Old God (considering the nature of the mogu and the Sha, quite likely), that places the fourth and final living Old God to the extreme south of Azeroth.Assume that the whispers in Tirisfal are caused by the fifth Old God, and what we instead have is an Old God on each major landmass of Azeroth, plus the Maelstrom, forming a cross, not a star.
