Knew Alduin would get killed by Garosh the moment i did the Hozen starter quest scenario typo thing with the 4 tales from the scouts (when they captured him) even said it in /1. "A certain event boils up the heat in the war between Horde and Alliance.
For my next prediction, Garosh will be infected by the Sha.
I think finale 1 is Ally version(he tells the player I will let you live) and finale 2 is horde version(he says at least the human prince is dead) ... so yeah if Anduin does die fuck blizz, fuck their game, fuck metzen, and I'm out ... ONE GOOD character they made and few months later they kill him ... WHAT DA ACTUAL FUCK ... /rage...
Which is why of course I think Anduin is either not dead, or will be raised a trivial amount of time after he is killed. I'm betting on the August Celestials raising him personally.
Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.
To me, killing a character when he hasn't even managed to develop is f***ing depressing, and in a bad way, one that would have me consider quitting too.
I play both Alliance and Horde, but have a favoritism with the Alliance, and I think its fair to say that its far to early to come to any conclusions yet on what direction the lore is going to take. I very much doubt that if Anduin dies, then he will stay dead for long. There has been to much foreboding for him, and it seems like since The Shattering, Blizz have been trying to upgrade him to hero status, if you will. (That being said, they have admitted that before that book, they had no idea where they were going to take Anduin as a character...)
Even if he dose die permanently, it may not be a bad thing for the Alliance lore-wise. It could unite the Alliance in a way it never has before, and ultimately lead to a stronger characters taking the lead in the fight against the Horde (I was hoping the Theramore story would turn out a little like this...) It could even bring the Horde to question itself and the futility of the war.
I don't really dig all the "Blizzhorde" stuff, the quality of lore isn't told simply by how bloodthirsty a faction is or how 'cooler' their army looks 9At least not by me it isn't!) but its clear that the Alliance has been at the receiving end off the Horde's boot recently (Although I think the Alliance have a much better MoP starting story then the Horde did!) and it would be nice to see the Alliance take a stand and have some of the big lore heroes come out and kick some Horde butt.

anduins death may be what turns the horde against garrosh
I think Anduin will be either a) not dead or b) resurrected by the August Celestials or Jinyu (Alliance allies on Pandaria) in some way since, as others have stated there is far too much buildup on his character for him to just die in patch 5.1. Volj'in's appearance is also interesting (though I love the quip about kissing frogs ). I think he will spearhead the Horde campaign against Garrosh, using these attempts to control the Sha (among other things) to join with Baine and lead the Horde's side of the Siege of Org.
One thing we know for sure: s^@% is about to get REAL!
What if Garrosh picks up Anduin, throws him off a cliff and thinks him dead, but he's save by Wrathion whos in dragon form?
