I wrote this in another thread
I hope the kill will be a combined effort.
Something along the lines off this.
The players have gotten Garrosh to 1% health or so. Cut scene.
Garrosh: I will not die to mere mortals, I am Garrosh, I am Immortal, I AM A GOD.
Starts corrupting the rest of his body.
A big Lightningbolt hits him right in the chest.
Out of nowhere a dark arrow pierces garrosh stomach. Then 3 more arrows to his upper chest region. Fades out to see Sylvanas, Thrall and Vol'jin.
Camera turns over to jaina that charges with frosty effects through the floor and freezes garrosh from the feet up to his waist. Garrosh then bends over almost in a kneeling position.
Garrosh: THIS IS NOT OVER. I WILL CRUSH YOU ALL.
He sheds the arrows and the ice, but suddenly a holy shackle him down in the position. Fades out to see Anduin.
Varian and Saurfang step over to Garrosh which is know on his knees.
Varian: Your reckless actions has to stop now.
Varian raises his sword.
Saurfang: You have dishonered the Horde, your people and most of all your FATHER
Saurfang raises his axe.
Varian thrusts his swords into the back of Garrosh head, camera is from the ground so you see the sword exits through his face.
Saurfang then chops his head clean off, with Varians sword still attached.
Varian walks over to the severed head, and pulls out his sword, while talking
Varian: A real warchief would never betray his own people. Your actions disgust me.
Saurfang: Thank you for the help. In dark times we find the strangest allies.
Varian: An enemy of my enemy is my friend
Saurfang: With the false Warchief slain, we shall take our time to mourn our losses and rebuild The Horde. What will you do Varian?
Varian: There is no honor in killing something that is already dead. But Saurfang, you should know we are still enemys. This was a one time deal to destroy a bigger threat to Azeroth.
Saurfang: I understand, now leave and let the next time we meet be on the battlefield.
Wrathion suddenly shows up.
Wrathion: That might happen faster than you think
The sky then shatters with greenfire and an infernal plummets from the sky.
Varian and Saurfang looks at eachother. The camera pans out and you see all the heroes and both armies standing side by side. While the sky darkens and you can barely see a face in all the clouds.
You've sacrificed the emotional intimacy of a proper ending with trying to cram as many people and events into a three minute scene with as much blood and gore as you can handle simply so that everyone can get a shot at him.
Saurfang and Varian sound especially off.
This would work only as some sort of deranged parody video.
I'd say Thrall.
He was way too involved when he left the "throne" to him, he might also finish it off.
I think it will be us, the players.
Vol'jin doesn't deserve it and if he does get it, it's gonna be like when you do all the work in a BG to kill someone, all for someone to come running over and steal your killing blow. Vol'jin is too much of a pussy to go 1 on 1 with the great one.
Varok. I think it'd be a really nice unexpected sentiment. And actually bring some lore-love back to the character.
Personally, even though I am Alliance, I think the only one out of the Alliance that i'd want to see is Varian, if they played it right, Jaina would just not be good.
And Already The World Looks A Little Less Bright.....
Wounded by the players Garrosh collapses. Thrall goes over to Garrosh, after stopping Vol'Jin from just shooting him there and then, and cradles his head to listen to the bitter last words of his greatest mistake before he succumbs to his wounds.
Whether at the very end in those words, Garrosh dies believing in his absolute righteousness or if in the final moments he realises his mistakes would define the tone of the scene.
I think if they did it right, Garrosh cannot repent at the end. He has to die accusing Thrall and those who followed of him of having betrayed the Horde, mocking Thrall for the number of dead Orcs that the battle has left, and reminding Thrall very pointedly who put him in charge.
Because each of these words will be like a black dagger in Thrall's heart instead, because this entire situation is one he played a major part in making. Only then will Garrosh close his eyes, driving home that there is no victory here today. Just a lot of dead people.
Too many possibilities for us to say.
Vol'Jin, for his hatred and his oath of the "arrow to the throat".
Thrall, for making the mistake of putting him warchief.
Varian, for losing so many of his own AND for hurting his son.
Jaina, for losing all she had: Theramore.
Sylvanas, for being treated as shit since Garrosh ascension.
The players, as Blizzard stated they wanted the players more involved in expansion's last raid boss kill.
So, honestly, I really have no idea.
He rejects her use of necromancy (as does every other damn race) and when he questions her about it she acts like a smart arse and he calls her a bitch. He rejected her tactics and responded when offended by and an offence.
His treatment of Sylavans is one of his rare moments where he's actually in the right.

Remember....Garrosh has two hearts. The heart of an old god (which reborn has raised interest with the Legion) and his own mortal heart. Blizzard is writing the script (ok, not fully but the theme) for the next expac based on how and why he dies.
Just as with the death of Deathwing and the fall of the Aspects. The rise of the mortals have taken on a new meaning and the threats incoming will be born from Garroshs death.
BTW, it's no one you ever suspect.
Not much to say other than I'm a Share Holder in ActivisionBlizzard.
Metzen's alter ego Thrall will of course. Green Jesus saves the day again.

... just that in my biased opinion, I just want to see Vol'jin keep his promise, especially after the Dagger in the Dark scenario, and having read Shadows of the Horde. Vol'jin's always been one of my fav lore chars, but recent events have actually lifted him to the number one position. So yeah, I'm openly bias ;p
Keep in mind that it is most likely that the guy who delivers the killing blow would be the next Warchief. So likely it'll be Lor'themar Theron or Vol'jin.
Towards the end of the fight Garrosh begins to laugh, stands back up and tells you all "I've had my fun, now die!" And wipes the raid in a single cleave, he stands over your broken corpse and those of Vol'Jin and Varian (who later turns out to just be badly injured) to gloat that he cannot be defeated.
Suddenly there is an ear piercing howl from outside the gates of Orgrimmar and we see Garrosh on the battlements looking down at a small army of Death Knights flying the Warsong banner, at the head of them stands the resurrected Death Knight version of Grommash Hellscream who proceeds to lead his men into Orgrimmar and destroy Garrosh's remaining guards while Grom, hesitantly decapitates Garrosh and silently seats himself on the seat as Warchief of the Horde.
Either Vol'jin or Wrathion flys in as a whelp and stabs Garrosh with the lightning lance.
