I played during Vanilla, but I was far too casual to really know much about the goings-on or who Bolvar was. That said, I still really like him as a character and I really hope Blizzard doesn't pull an Kael'thas with him. Another corrupted hero as a raid boss would be not only tiring and predictable, but painfully tragic in this case. I'd personally like to see him turn things around. After a few years of sitting up in Icecrown trying to keep the Scourge in check, he shows up in Stormwind with his Army of the Dead and says "So Varian, I heard you're having some problems with the Sha. Mind if I lend a hand or 10,000? They're not particularly smart, but they do as they're told as long as they keep all their limbs attached." . . . not that I think it will happen in MoP (if at all), but maybe when we take the fight back to the Legion again in a couple expacs.

This X100,000,000,000. Bolvar was someone special, I'd like to think that he was capable of holding himself together. We've had so many fallen heroes, one who clawed their way back out of that pit would be amazing.Hey, you want a plot twist? Sylvanas pulls her Lich Queen impression. No longer a part of the Horde (I could totally see her trying to pull a coup), the Forsaken players and a handful of NPCs remain with the Horde, but leaderless and under extreme suspicion. And THAT is when Bolvar finally finishes getting a grip on the remaining Scourge and goes after Sylvanas...and through some very wierd and intricate hand-waving, the Scourge winds up becoming the new Horde undead faction opposing the now-independent Forsaken. Why does Bolvar join the Horde when he's so clearly Alliance? A: the Horde are used to working with undead, while the Alliance are not. B: In a meta overview, you can't just take a race away from one faction. So having the Scourge join the Horde gives Bliz a convenient excuse as for why there are still undead scampering around Orgrimmar. Also, new racial mount: Frostwyrm!Never gonna happen, but that's why speculating is so much fun!
