Patch 3.3 PTR: Sound files may reveal fate of the Lich King
Sound files in Patch 3.3 uncovered over at MMO Champion have got players all abuzz. In particular, lore-nerds who have listened to the sound files and put them together in the most reasonably coherent fashion are going nuts over the possibilities and implications. Tissue-sniffling, underpants-changing nuts. The kind of nuts that happen in Twilight Zone episodes. So understand that clicking on any of the links below are on a Need to Know basis. That means it's full of spoilers.

No, seriously. It has so many spoilers that unsuspecting players can explode just by clicking on the Read More link below. It's that dangerous. The sound files are so revealing, so incriminating, that every agent sent by SI:7 to safeguard them has been removed from active duty and sent to the loony bin. They're so volatile that even Ragnaros got burned when he read the rest of this post. So juicy that it cost Lady Vashj an arm and a leg -- or six arms and a tail -- just to listen to them.

The sound files in question are mined from the goings-on in Icecrown, which may (or may not) reveal the ultimate fate of the Lich King. It also includes previously unrevealed first names of only sons, emotional moments from hot mages, uncharacteristic coolness from leaders heretofore labeled as hate-mongering and racist, and unexpected appearances by heroes long dead (but not forgotten). Click on the link for madness-inducing spoilers. Otherwise that lady by your side will whisper something in your ear and you'll go crazy, anyway. Might as well have do it for you.

Patch 3.3 is the last major patch of Wrath of the Lich King. With the new Icecrown Citadel 5-man dungeons and 10/25-man raid arriving soon, patch 3.3 will deal the final blow to the Arthas.'s Guide to Patch 3.3 will keep you updated with all the latest patch news.

Here's Deathbringer Saurfang in some reverse Darth Vader monologue...

More Deathbringer channeling Darth Vader again...

Here's the clip that should get all the Varian Wrynn fans feeling good about themselves for cheering on a major tool *expletive deleted* and ultra-contrived character. Sorry. I still think he's an asshat.

Here's the part where the Alliance charge into Icecrown and Jaina goes all gushy and sentimental. Thrall should listen to this one.

On the flip side, we've got the Horde barging in with Lady Sylvanas. Click play to see what happens to her.

The transcript of all the datamined Icecrown sound files can be found here.

If you were crazy enough to click on the link... or crazy enough to have listened to all clips and read the transcript, then you're crazy enough to buzz along with the rest of us crazies. There must always be a Lich King... so who will be next? Jaina still holds a flame for Arthas! And tears up at Varian's nobility! Boy, this woman gets around. What else? Oh, how can I forget... cancer is cured. Because Saurfang. Freaking. Cries.
