Plot twists, me like!
I just realized something though, if Garrosh has this Divine Bell that supposedly affects or controls the Sha, this totally means we're gonna be seeing the 7th Sha, under Garrosh's control, in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

Hello dude /waves to boomking
Right then. Fuck it. Kill everyone and let Elune sort it all out.
Fly fast, stay low, hit hard.
- madethisfor1postYou'd think the 8th Anniversary was the Cheese Anniversary to go with all the whine.

If Garrosh somehow really kills him I guess Sylvanas will ressurect him (her playing a role in that hole Garrosh thing as Dave Kossak said).
Garrosh kills Sylvanas, Anduin new Forsaken leader.
Velen doesn't understand what's going on and Lor'themar will do something big that nobody cares about.
Sounds about right to me.
(Sorry if someone has already replied on this)

Maybe it's not an obvious death... Maybe Garrosh just kicks Anduin off a cliff/waterfall or something and we all assume he died. But then PLOT TWIST he pops out of no where later on in the expansion having survived.
It won't be obvious of what happens until we hear Anduin's voice files or see the actual event. If he's gurgling blood, then... well... um. Yeah. Dayum Garrosh, you scary.
The irony if Aduin does die and this does rally the Alliance into full on slaughter mode this would be the second Aduin to have this effect on the Alliance and propel them to a turning point in the war AKA Aduin Lothar.
but on the other hand i can see this as a means thought up by wrathion to dethrone garrosh and to finally have some form of peace so they can finally understand the upcoming invasion.....which they should be well a fucking ware of since they know they didnt defeat the Burning Legion
The way that the dialogue plays out makes me think that Garrosh is speaking (in finale 2) from only an understanding that anduin is dead. If he killed him himself he would have said so to the player/whomever he is talking two, just for clarity, and because its his type of personality. You would assume he would gloat when he can, saying that he killed the prince, rather than 'the prince is dead'.
My thoughts nonetheless.
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
Okay so I have a friend whose cousin works at a startup in Irvine and he's best friends with a guy at Blizzard and this is where I heard this. Here's what happens.
So basically, Garrosh really does kill Anduin and we're all shocked on both factions. Vol'jin then contacts the player character and tells him that Garrosh is going too far by using the Sha. The hero and Vol'jin then go to see Wrathion and Wrathion says that he knew this would happen, which is why he came to Pandaria in the first place. Wrathion will reveal that there needs to be a quick war between Horde and Alliance before a greater enemy (hint hint) reveals itself and utilizes the Horde as its tool. However, to fight said greater enemy, they need Anduin alive because he's going to be very important in that fight.
Here's where it gets interesting. So Wrathion, with the help of Velen, finds out that there is an artifact in Outland that can be used to travel through time called the Eye of the Storm. Wrathion and Velen send the hero to Outland to retrieve the artifact and bring it back. After doing so, Vol'jin, Wrathion and Velen meet with the hero and explain that there is a plan. Someone from the Shado-pan (not sure who) is called out and reveals that they know the secret of animating stone from the Mogu, but that it's imperfect and the animated statue is lifeless. Still, they have been busy making a stone statue of Anduin. (The player is sent on numerous quests to retrieve other artifacts to animate the stone Anduin, etc.)
Finally, the statue Anduin is read and the Eye of the Storm is in hand. Wrathion uses the Eye of the Storm to open a portal that sends the player to just moments before Anduin's death. Upon arrival, time is frozen. The player quickly animates the stone Anduin and REPLACES the real Anduin with the animated stone copy. Then the hero steps back through the portal to the present time and the scene of Garrosh killing Anduin completes, but this time it's the animated stone Anduin!
Upon returning to the present, Wrathion, Velen and Vol'jin explain to Anduin what is going on and that he must be in hiding. Anduin is then taken by the Shado-pan guy (sorry, no idea who it is yet) and hidden. He will be "trained" during his absence to prepare him for the coming battle.
So basically it's all a setup by Wrathion with the help of Velen and Vol'jin and the Shado-pan to cover it up. It's supposed to end with finally eliminating the greatest of the Sha, who will in the end be contaminating Garrosh's body (and which we will kill at the end of the expack).
Sounds pretty cool!
