Ugh... great, if they're just using Garrosh as a scapegoat to ramp up faction hostilities without getting Green Jesus' hands dirty, and then hand the Horde back, I'm going to be even more dissapointed with the story than I was in Cataclysm.

I think Thrall is gone. Vol'jinn or maybe Sylvannas will be in. Say what you will about Sylvanns, but she's the faction leader you love to hate.

Thrall won't be back soon. He is busy changing nappies.

or they could have been building to this for awhile? Dude, Vol'jin himself said he was going to bring Garrosh down.And Vol'jin also reached out to the Alliance during the whole Zandalari and ZG/ZA issue.So this is to say... I'm bettin' Vol'jin is behind this, and I am very happy. /cacklesNewsflash- it isn't a good idea to take a semi-happy family of your closest allies and mock them.

Metzen actually stated explicitly that Thrall would return as Warchief last august. I'm hoping that he's not using this scenario as the vehicle to accomplish that, because it would be absolutely terrible storytelling if he were to simply discard Garrosh at this point. It would undercut the fundamental requirements to creating a compelling story in so many ways.http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/07/23/thralls-return-to-the-horde-and-more-lore-from-san-diego-comic/

"There's more with Thrall" isn't an explicit statement that Thrall will return as Horde Warchief. Especially as it was written before Thrall returned in-game with the Elemental Bonds quest, let alone his whole Dragon Soul appearance.

1) That comment was made months after the release of patch 4.2.2) The quote wasn't "there's more for Thrall" It was "Your Warchief is coming back." And combined with his recent comments about Garrosh's reign was always intended to be brief, and it's looking like it's going to be Thrall.
