    [ Spoilers ] SPECULATION - What is the yawning Chasm of darkness and he/she!?

    PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK OF SPOILERAGE

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEs90Fus99w

    1.11 onwards

    What does he say there? "More powerful than she/he was even!?" - Who do you think he is referring too? :O


    What is the yawning chasm of darkness beneath us?

    Finally some old god activity? Maybe even N'zoth?

    Thoughts?

    Holy poop, Ra-Den voices? Listening now... He does NOT sound friendly.

    I'm going to guess that "he" is the Thunder King and the "yawning chasm of darkness" is a metaphor for impending doom of some sort, possibly the Legion. Though it could be literal. What exactly the Engine of Nalak'sha does (and exactly how far down that hole goes) isn't all that clear, though there was a similar, defunct engine in Northrend near Yogg Saron's prison.

    Yup, after listening I agree with Drilnos.

    "More powerful than he was even..." referring to Lei Shen.

    The yawning chasm = the rising influence of the Old Gods.

    Jaina's front bottom after a night with Kalecgos and Thrall. Sounds like a yawning cavern of darkness to me.



    srs mode: Maybe the location of an old god?

    could be the internal hate that the alliance have for the horde

    Aegwynn corrupted by Sargeras Soul.

    As far as i know she was some kind of "vessel" to banish him and then disappeared.

    And since next addon is about Burning Crusade Blizzard starts to introduce us into the new Story line.

    'He' is Lei Shen. I repeat, Ra-den said HE, not SHE.

    As for the chasm, I say Old Gods.

    Er... that's not what Aegwynn did at all. Sargeras only stayed with her temporarily, she didn't even know about it. She didn't banish him either, she only defeated an avatar of his. Nor did she just disappear, she gave birth to Medivh before that.

    Probably. He says "beneath", so it is unlikely to refer to the Legion. Though it might refer to something else entirely... remember how the Titans stopped trying to kill the Old Gods after Y'Shaarj?

    In this specific case, the chasm may refer to the slain Y'Shaarj and his essence (the Sha) that pollute Pandaria. The Sha are apparently still active in 5.2, so either destroying the six greater ones just slowed them down, or there really is a seventh Sha still free somewhere.

    But yeah, there are still Old Gods active. Even if C'Thun and Yogg-Saron have been reduced as Y'Shaarj have (and maybe they're not quite that dead), there's N'Zoth, who's probably the strongest, and possibly at least one other, if they stick by the original lore of there being five. Plenty of candidates for being the dark chasm trying to swallow the world.

    If you listen to Lorewalker Cho's sound files, he indicates that Lei Shen ripped out the heart of the mogu god and stole his power, aka Ra'den. So Ra'den is clearly referring to the Thunder King.

    the "He " is the thunder king, the one who defeated Ra Den and imprisoned him.
    The yawning chasm of Darkness is somehow related to the Old Gods I believe. There is a theory that azeroth is not actually a planet but a prison and the most powerful old god lies at the core. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AzathothName sound familiar?

    A bullshit "theory" with little to really support it, yes.

    We've been outright told that the Sha can only be subdued temporarily, not permanently destroyed, so that's hardly surprising.

    Very intruiging. I have NO clue what this gaping chasm beneath us may be. COuld be Old God related, or Burning Legion. If he's using a metaphor it could be sooooo many things.

    This also harkens back to what Moruzond said in Cata, about that this Cata ending with Deathwing not being a bad end compared to what else he had seen in our future.

    It sounds to me like he's a corrupted whatever-the-heck Algalon is.

  17. #17
    I think we might actually get to see Y'Shaarj sooner or later, dead.

    We've already fought a corrupted titan AI, Elegon.

    He says something about "what where the mogu doing in Pandaria".

    Perhaps there is an Old God prison nearby?
