I'd bet there are plenty of people like me. people who study the game's history, who read the books, and devours wowpedia, and yet don't raid because it's a pain in the arse.

I did "work" a lot on WoW. I have plenty of alts, titles and mounts, I struggle to fit more pets in my pet journal, my bank is completely full of stuff, et cetera.
but it's all things I obtained throughout the years with minimal effort. the only time I really worked hard on WoW was during pre-cata, because I had 3 weeks to get shendralar exalted and the scepter of the shifting sands done before those things were removed from the game. thank god I got it on time, but those were 3 hellish weeks with minimal sleep

Thats wierd, these files are usually datamined once they are about to lunch a new build on that day, but the PTR didnt get a new build. Really awesome none theless, hope to finally hear some Thunder King voice files soon.
The purpose of the heart is what's puzzling me, because clearly Ra-den wasn't using it to pump blood. If he was, he'd be dead. I have a hunch that the thing was acting as a sort of power limiter on him, just like the XT Deconstructor's heart.
Perhaps the Thunder King had some help with Ra Den, sort of like old god type help. Maybe the watcher was already corrupted by an old god the way that the ones in Ulduar were.
As far as the real final boss of the expansion, i'm hoping that there is some major plot twist (I was thinking of Jade empire). Perhaps the real final boss of the expansion will be the resurrected Pandaren Emperor who is disguised as Lorewalker Cho. Think about it, the Sha supposedly popped out of him and were then imprisoned, but according to other sources the Sha came from an old god, does this mean that there was some link between the emperor and an old god?

if he was killed in battle by a lone pandaren who got a lucky shot right in his face that somehow hit his biggest weak spot one shotting him.
that pandarens full name would be lost to time O-O but his family name would live on O-O STORMSTOUT @_@

Maybe Ra-Den was wounded and in an inactive state from a battle with an old God when Lei Shen found him , Lei' Shen took it's heart and used it to control and harness the the titanic watcher's power and become the Thunder King.
When Lei Shen is killed the heart is destroyed and Ra-Den is no longer under control and become active , and you have to deal with a wounded and pretty pissed off titan watcher.
