    Mists of Pandaria music tells us that the new expansion will be about Burning Legion?

    I've just realised that music from 5.1 cinematics:



    Is the same music that was used in Warcraft III Cinematic (play the video from 1:55 to hear it):

    Listen to the words in Warcraft III Cinematic:
    "As mortal armies rush blindly towards their doom, the burning shadows comes to consume us all."

    And that's what Horde and Alliance is doing in 5.1 and in whole Mists of Pandaria expansion. Is this another hint telling us that the next expansion will be about Burning Legion?

    I hope something like this will be 5.4 cinematic.

    I know you mean for the SoO..

    But I just had an idea; what if during the SoO the Legion shows up again. So in reality 5.4 is actually a conclusion to MoP and Garrosh's downfall, but at the same time an introduction to the next expansion.

    Mind = blown.

    OT;
    Good spot OP.

    If the next expansion does turn out to be about the Legion, this "coincidence" is sweet as hell.

    I would like this.

    IT would shut all the "Where's mah pre-expansion event" people up, cause a nice, fluid transition from this xpac to the next.

    That's...hilarious. I seriously wonder if they were just lazy, or did that on purpose?

    Well a cynic would tell you that blizzard were just lazy and digging up old sound tracks to use in new content, however it would be pretty damn sweet if this coincidence held some meaning.

    OK i have a question for you OP. What else could the expansion be about? It's going to be Burning Legion for sure. Even if it's not all about them it will be partly involving them.
    But good find mate!

    They did it on purpose, they have told us that few times.
    People enjoyed the old Warcraft I/II/III music, so they used those in Mists of Pandaria, And i'm glad they did so.

    After Mists of Pandaria nothing would surprise me

    With all the crazy ideas people come up in this forum, this is insanely awesome. Makes a lot of sense, and could actually be true.

    Interesting coincidence and a nice find.

    Whether it's merely a coincidence or foreshadowing for what's to come will remain to be seen.

    *as mortal armies rush blindly to their dooooooom!* haha love that part. Anyway, very nice find though i really hope if we get demons next expansion, i get to cleave as much skull as in tbc.

    pet battle background music is also re-used. its from warcraft 2.

    but thats pretty common. like they recreate the title song for every expansion login screen. or in diablo when they also re-record the tristram theme. if they have this awesome soundtrack, whats wrong reusing it (but not everytime) if it fits the cutscene/cinematic/etc? Also I think thats part of a vanilla wow track, they just used a small part.

    Interesting find, though I highly doubt it means anything.

    So it comes full circle...

    Excellent find there, spot on old bean.

    i really wish they would have done some sort of remix of warcraft ii music or just gone straight with the warcraft ii music for the login theme. wasn't blizzard saying prior to mists release that it was going to bring the war back into warcraft so it would only fit to have war themed music. warcraft III was more about the 3 factions(at that time since night elves werent part of the alliance yet.) working together to defeat the burning legion/scourge.
