What's the next big shock in WoW?


While we're not going to reveal the big spoiler in the latest patch here in this column, I think it's fair to say everyone's aware... there was one. Something big just happened in WoW, answering the biggest Azerothian "Will they or won't they?" since Ross and Rachel. (The orcs. Did you miss that quest?)

In our role as helpful video game journalists, a few of your intrepid WoW Insider staffers made our best guess about what the next big shock would be. Read on to see what we thing... and leave your own guess for the Next Big Spoiler in the comments!

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I suspect the next really huge thing most people are wondering is what the heck the next expansion is going to be!

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb) Lorna Crowley retakes Gilneas while everyone else was focused on Orgrimmar, which leads to Genn becoming discredited and Lorna being crowned as the new queen. Shandris wins massive victories against the Horde in Feralas and Ashenvale, becomes defacto leader of the Night Elves as Druidism falls out of favor and Tyrande is seen as weak. Moira stages a coup that is successful this time. Wildhammers decide Ironforge sucks and leave again.

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) I'd be interested to know what the next move is for Jaina, and what Sylvanas's long term strategy is.

Joe Perez (@lodurzj) I think it's going to be the extending of peace talks between the Alliance and Horde and I'm waiting to see what the next unifying bad guy is going to be!

Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) Will-they-won't-they narratives sound more at home in romance stories. Thus, I propose Vol'jin hook up with that troll pirate lady in Thousand Needles, then make sure the Kor'kron are all on her deadbeat ex's captain ass to shake him down for child support. WILL SHE STAY? WILL SHE GO BACK TO PIRATE CAPTAIN MAN? THE WORLD MAY NEVER oh shit we were supposed to not spoil the Warchief thing crap
