Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.
You guys sure spent a bunch of comments yesterday debating who the new Warchief is going to be!
Does anyone else think that the super secret last boss of the new raid (for heroic eyes only) will be the final (seventh) Sha? Reasonable follow-up - does anyone else suspect that the Mogu are, in fact, creations of that same Sha? Not sure what it would be the Sha of (I've opined Pride in the past), but this would at least explain how the Mogu reverse engineered the Curse of the Flesh (an act only a servant of an Old God could accomplish before - Tol'Vir).
The heroic-only boss seems to be named "Ra-den," which doesn't seem to use the regular "Sha of _____" naming convention. Bet you it's thunder-related, though!
Regina George asked:
I zoned out for a while. Is Garrosh still going to be the final boss of Mists? With that siege thing and stuff?
Yes, that's the plan. We don't know if we're gonna kill him, but we're definitely taking him on.
Yesterday I decided to do the Black Temple for the first time with a guildie and noticed when I started to kill Illidan, he talks about Lady Vashj. What is their connection?
Vashj and Kael accompanied Illidan to Outland in Warcraft 3. That game and Burning Crusade quests give a bunch of background about this, but you can also read about it on Wowpedia.
Here's a lore question: what do you think the odds are of Anduin being the one to kill Garrosh? Varian has turned out to be a lot more like his son this expansion, I think it would be interesting to see Anduin become like his father and recognize that not everyone can be saved, that sometimes war and bloodshed is the most noble course of action.
Unlikely. Anduin is in training to become a priest and he's also about half Garrosh's size. It'd be a lot to swallow. Not that we've never had weird curveball defeats before, but, yeah. Probably not.
What are the chances Alliance could get an "Avenger of Theramore" title or somesuch this expac? Not sure what a horde equivalent could be.
I doubt that'll be the name, but you can bet there'll be titles for either faction relating to taking out Garrosh.
