Updated! Spoiler Alert: Patch 5.3 Datamined sound files


Spoiler Alert! Beyond the break are several YouTube video embeds which contain considerable spoilers for the latter half of this expansion, as well as, potentially, for the next one.

Our friends over at Adriacraft have been at it again, digging around in the latest patch 5.3 PTR files. There's audio from several key characters in the game (including a great deal of Wrathion), revealing what could well be coming our way. Of course, take this with a hefty pinch of salt. This is datamined information and should be treated as such, so don't take it as confirmation of anything.

As ever, spoilers lurk after the break. Do not hit the break unless you are happy to hear spoilers for upcoming content. Do not read the comments unless you are happy to read people talking about spoilers. Fair warning.

There are also files for King Varian Wrynn, Baine Bloodhoof, Lorewalker Cho and Thrall, and from Wrathion's scenario there are also different sound files for the four gods: Niuzao, Xuen, Yulon, and Chiji.
So, what do you think of all this? It seems like there are various exciting developments in these files, detailing, amongst other things, how the Horde and Alliance will work together to raid Orgrimmar, and maybe even giving us a clue or two to the content and theme of the next WoW expansion!

Does this mean that Vol'Jin is a likely candidate for warchief? Will Thrall return? Or will he be killed by Garrosh? The possibility certainly arises. In the patch where we're working our way back to Azeroth proper, does it seem likely that the faction war takes a backseat to stopping Garrosh in his tracks? Plus some dwarves have appeared, along with the mysterious seventh Sha!

Pop your tinfoil hats on and let us know your crazy theories in the comments below!

Update: This new audio file has just emerged of the Ysharrj scenario, as well as this Titan Construct Scenario audio.
