Zarhym has thrown a spanner in our preconceptions with the following post

Zarhym - Anduin goes Neutral - Really?

Erm...He's going back to being warchief of the horde. Which apparently isn't supposed to bother all the alliance that have been working with him for the last few years.
I know what was said during the press tour, but don't be so sure yet that you know who the next warchief will be. The information provided during the press tour was... not entirely accurate.
This is very interesting because it creates an entirely new future direction for the Horde. We saw tensions rise between the various factions in Cataclysm
, and with Garrosh's ultimate fate
not terribly rosy, this leaves us with a potential power vacuum and
several individuals who might seek to fill it. Will Sylvanas make a power play? Will Baine, who is seen stretching his muscles in Mists
sending missions to Pandaria, repeat his father's course and challenge Garrosh for the throne? Will Vol'jin seek to rule? Will everyone show wisdom and beg Rexxa
r to become warchief?
Time will tell. But for now, get your best crazy speculating hat on.
It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in
Mists of Pandaria,
World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
