    Except that Ner'zhul was mindstabbed/killed by soulless/evil Arthas (after he got rid of his human child good side in his mind) in the Arthas - Rise of the Lich King novel. It taking place before WotLK or at the latest after the Howling Fjord quest where the LK said he was a shaman once.

    He was in the Alliance, as it was before the new known Alliance
    More a point of view thing imho. For some players like myself, he was Old Alliance, not current Alliance (Only Stormwind and Ironforge and since Cata Gilneas being the only ones from the original Old Alliance being part of the new Alliance. The Old Alliance died when Garrithos died, for some sooner). Similar how some seperate Old Horde, Thrall/Vol'jin Horde and Garrosh' "True Horde", while others claiming Horde = Horde and Alliance = Alliance, not caring for the differences.

    I hope not. We will surely see him again, but I hope he will still be "the bad guy" when we do.

    some people really expect trial and death sentence in WoW? nope, not going to happen.
    If they wanted to kill off Garrosh he would die in a raid, that means Blizzard still have some big plans for him, I'm happy because either you love or hate Garrosh he is awesome lore character now.

    I'm pretty sure we'll end up 'needing' him when the time of the visions he's been having comes around.

    Will he be 'good'? I hope not.

    We are saying the same thing. That's why i said before the known new alliance.

    By the time of Wrath of The Lich King there was no more Ner'zhul. The expansion doesn't even mention him once. By the events of the Arthas novel Ner'zhul is either destroyed or, at the very least, dormant.

    Going by Blizzard's comments on the matter I say he's destroyed.

    "Awesome lore character..." *eye twitch*

    Please... dear sweet Jesus... don't ever say that. Garrosh isn't a good "lore" character. He's a shittily written character that Blizz wrote themselves into a corner trying to make relevent. His intentions and development makes absolutly no sense and he should have just stayed in Nagrand years ago.

    Considering they are running out of lore characters though, both for new heroes and villains, he'll probably show up in some bullshit role later down the line.

    The ending itself is rather obvious though. Considering that Panderia is the whole, "peace and love" kind of thing. The act of sparing the life of an evil psychopath you've fought against is a typical response in a world like this. It falls under the idea that you can't kill someone when fueld by revenge, and that justice isn't handled by a bloody sword.

    If they decide to have his trial be in-game and not just explained away through a few pieces of pointless dialogue or a money-grubbing book, I doubt that they'll execute him. The Panda-people will just use some magical mumbo-jumbo to seal him away for his crimes or yadda yadda. Then he'll go all Illidain on us, break free and either be a later threat or Blizz will try to make him look like a bad ass and kill himself fighting a demon during the inevitable Legion invasion.

    He will be caged and publicly humiliated once per month. Carted around between SW and Org.

    Well then Taran Zhu could have smashed his head in during the cinematic and there would be no bias towards either side. But it did not happen in the cinematic so gameplay reason is not a valid. Sorry!

Lightning crashes, thunder booms and the scene cuts to Zaela giving birth. "It's a boy..." says the Tauren nurse-maid, Zaela sighs happily - And then a Fel Meteor smashes into the building. Cut back to Garrosh, slumping down against the Pit Lord, covered in wounds, Gorhowl broken, eyes slowly closing. "My son..." are the last words that come from his lips, as the Pandaren rush on over in an atempt to save him, but he's already gone.

    Flash back to Orgrimmar, with Thrall digging through the ruble, desperately trying to search for survivors. Protected, clutched in Zaela's arms is her and Garrosh's son, still alive, still safe, but now an orphan with bother parents dead. Thrall scoops him on up, as Aggra appears from behind, her son in her own arms. The camera pans back, revealing the devastation caused to Orgrimmar, then flashes to each and every city on Azeroth, all ruined, all pelted by The Legion, demons over-running the streets.

    "World of Warcraft: In the Shadow of the Legion" appears on the screen and bang, Garrosh is "redeemed", his son lives on under Thralls tutalage and also allows him to have a rival with Thralls son ^^
    So the children will turn into Thor and Loki?

    If Ner'zhul was destroyed, who is in the Helm of Domination? Remember Bolvar only became the new Lich King after Tirion put the helmet on him. And Arthas is dead by that point. So the Lich King is still in the helmet. Since Arthas is dead, Ner'zhul must still be in there somewhere or there would be nothing to pass onto Bolvar.
