Nov 2nd 2011 5:47PM Azeroth is something special...this has been stated flat out. I propose a theory along the line following the "Curse of Flesh" that transformed many of the titans creations into the races that now inhabit the world. Consider this, could Azeroth itself have succumbed to the same curse? If it was also a titan creation, then it's certainly plausible. If so, then it really is not much of a leap to think that Azeroth is in fact an Old God, as other posters have speculated. Or, at the very least, some sort of combination of the expanded physical bodies and spheres of influence of the surviving Old Gods. In the real world, there are parasites that do just that, hijack the body of their host to reach their goal. Albeit in our world their goals generally only consist of finding food and procreation. We see examples of the jailed corrupting their prisons all thru the game, rather than actually escaping. Perhaps the Old Gods have altered their plans somewhat, and are now seeking to infect Azeroth to the point that they ARE Azeroth, instead of trying to escape. Food for thought, no? =)
Oct 17th 2011 10:08AM I don't believe that Blizzard has reached the point in Sylvanas's story arc that they are prepared to play out her final death. As many questions as her short story answered, there are still far too many left up in the air to simply cut her loose, just yet anyway. I personally have always had the most sympathy for Sylvanas, and Arthas as well for that matter. They are both personifications of what can happen when determination and belief are taken to their utmost extremes. They both have deeply emotional stories behind them that brought them to their current places in history, whether that be destroyed, as in the case of Arthas, or in some sense reborn, as we see with the Val'kyr's pact with the Banshee Queen.
I actually believe that our beloved Miss Jaina Proudmoore is next up on the chopping block. Although she is not technically a faction leader for the humans, there is no other that has tried as hard as she to forge peace between the Horde and Alliance, save for Thrall himself. Therefor, if anyone would want to cause even deeper rifts between the warring groups, it would behoove them to kill Jaina. Not only would this spark a new wave of anger in the hearts of Alliance members, but just think how Thrall would react to his closest friend that still lives being once again suddenly taken from his life? And let us not forget how much Anduin cares for her either. I saw a few posts mentioning some kind of event taking place that would harden his heart. Well, aside from the death of his father, losing Jaina would be something that could do just that. That being said, I don't believe that Anduin would let it color his view of the world. He's been being tutored by Velen himself and has learned much about the Light and the cycle of life from the old prophet. So that's my thoughts on this. If anyone is going to die, I have a very strong feeling that it's likely going to be Jaina next. If only to further an already half developed plot line. =)
