I gotta wonder what Thrall's role will be post-Cataclysm... he's saved the world, he's on good terms with most Alliance members at this point... he is owed thanks by all the Dragonflights, and the Horde has the leadership it deserves in Garrosh.... so what's he going to be doing in MoP?

Maybe Mary Sue will take a break for an expansion. Go take a well deserved vacation in Nagrand.

Going to Disneyland.

My understanding is that Thrall will become the new Earth Warder (Deathwing's old role before he went mad) It is a great decision and makes a lot of sense given Thrall's connection with Azeroth.

This is the first expansion where we've actually had a substantial focus on Thrall. And even then, we've arguably spent more time hanging around Malfurion and watching him be awesome. I mean, that'll change after Dragon Soul, which is all Thrall all the time. But we haven't really seen /that/ much Thrall. Beyond the one questline and him pointing at a big ass whirlwind. That said, yeah. Earthwarder from the sounds of things. Though it does make me wonder how the whole draconic council thing'll work. Will he get a really tall chair or something?

He'll do what Duke Nukem did - become a penthouse billionaire who gets all the chicks.Maybe Blizzard will even spend 10 years making a game where you play as Thrall before they finally go bankrupt and are dissolved. :P

Nah, they've already said that only dragons can be Aspects, although I wonder if Wrathion will get to be Earthwarder. Thrall is bound to pop up in MoP, whether he's on the scene of some big elemental disturbance, or if we go consult with him, Aggra and the kids in their little house in Nagrand.Perhaps this isn't the trailer Blizzard originally wanted to make, but they wanted to head off a bit of Thrall backlash. I like the character, but we've seen rather a lot of him recently.

Mary Sue or not, he deserves some time to himself with Aggra. Maybe they can start that family he wants. i don't see then getting downtime, but it would be nice if they did. I imagine Thrall will be in Pandaria with everyone else though busy saving the world.

Best bet would be for the strain of using the Soul to kill him too. Dude's character arc is overdue for ending.

Thrall: I have to go now, my planet needs me.(Thrall died on the way back to his home planet. Yes, I know Azeroth is his home planet. Quiet, you.)
