    Since that wont happen and this isn't GW2 sadly, its more likely blizzard has a plan in mind, my own two cents however in a way that makes sense by blizzards cliches is that Garrosh either:

    1. Is sent into exile and consequentially gets finished off by Vol'jin as the Troll promised.

    2. Is sent into exile, only to be taken in by the very creatures he fought against, the burning legion, vowing revenge on all of Azeroth soon enough.


    The latter is possible because of the fact we know there is an "Iron Horde" template for the next expansion, even if it was only a texture model its actually part of Garrosh flag which implies that we haven't seen the last of Hellscream.

    Again, the idea of a reoccurring antagonist to me is a good idea, it gives us a familiar face to love to hate and long to finish off once and for all.

    He lives, Orgrimmar was just a set back !!!

    He will erect an army of True Orcs and will strike the Legion when time is right getting revenge for all the orc race and redempting his past sins as he will be assisting to save the universe.

    He can't be killed either, since, you know... as much as I ADORE WoW lore, there always was one big problem with it - age rating.

    The story may turn dark sometimes, we can sometimes have really grim scenarios like Kor'kron purge of Orgrimmar, but it's still PEGI 12... It's kinda disappointing, but as serious and mature this story has been to this point, it simply can't end with execution, for the sole rating reason...

    As much as I wish we could get a really dark and serious ending to this - I don't see it. Blood is blood, death is death, martial law is martial law, they could show pretty much everything and still get away with it, but execution is a whole different thing. Although the cinematic showed Thrall's clear intentions, so... Well, I'll be positively surprised if something develops in this direction!
    Executions happen all the time in WoW. Hell, we basically go in and execute every major lore boss. The whole 'it's pg12' argument really doesn't do much for it; We watched the red dragon get murdered by Deathwing in the Badlands, sacrificing her own egg to ensure that Wrathion did live. We've heard of the rape and imprisonment of Alexstraza to create the drakes for the original Dragonmaw. An entire army in the Pit of Saron is killed all at once, and re-raised as undead right before our eyes, while both Horde and Alliance slaves are worked to death or worse directly behind us. Corpses are strewn together and re-raised only to fight against the very cause they worked for in life.

    Tell me again a single execution can't happen.

    He's going to be redeemed. They've already set it up all the necessary pieces. If he was going to die, he would have in the raid.

    He has had his pride thoroughly destroyed. Defeated by rebels/Alliance, Varian sparing his life, Taran Zhu walking him away in chains and Vol'jin of all people becoming Warchief. He should be pretty broken down now. Anduin also seems to talk to him while he's in the cage. So he can begin to walk the path to redemption.

    Not only that, but Gorehowl, the uncorrupted one was purposefully left there for him to use again.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend. His name is forever linked to the Legion. He'll be imprisoned for the next expansion. The following expansion will be Legion-themed, so he's being set up for redemption. At that time, he'll be instrumental in the death of some Big Bad (possibly Kil'jaeden) and clear the family name before dying of his wounds. Blizzard is rather predictable in my opinion. They want his redemption, many of the player base wants his death, they'll split the difference.

    The timeline I I want to see unfold is:

    - Garrosh escapes, whilst murdering someone we all love during the escape.
    [lots of time passes]
    - Garrosh's escape turns out to be a ruse by a worse villain that actually captures Garrosh and subjugates him to intense torture (the power he amassed/stole is being SLOWLY siphoned out of him to power a portal that summons worse evil).
    [even more time passes]
    - Garrosh barely survives through his torture and is a husk of his former self, transported to some desolate prison world.
    - Players raid this world and come across Garrosh, kill his Jailer and bring Garrosh back to Azeroth to finally face his trial.
    - Garrosh pleads to be put to death. Denied. Made to live out the rest of his days as a Prisoner... (to be continued)

    What the hell is this mess? Garrosh needs to be pardoned?!!

    I enjoyed Mists of Pandaria, I really did. The Lore, Quests, Patches, Raids etc but if people still think that Garrosh isn't evil by now ... He spent Orc lives turning them one by one into SHa using the Divine Bell. He put a hit out on Vol'jin and tried to make the Echo Isles a Prison camp, and used the Sunreavers to steal the Divine Bell just to further corrupt his people.

    Garrosh supporters can only be described as battered housewives trying desperately to defend their abusive spouse. "Let the jerk go. He doesn't love you anymore." To which they reply "He can change, he told me he Loves me (with his fists)."

    Just plain sad.

    What does this have to do with pegi rating? Killing people left right in center, commiting downright genocide is all fine according to pegi (12), because it uses the twisted american point of view where titts are evil incarnate and blowing someones head off is divine justice. The only thing you can't do is make the cutscene a splatter movie, but simply suggesting it should be absolutly fine, I mean I smashed in the heads (na actually I dug them up, but you get what I mean) of the humans in hilsbrad in the human-farm, how is that any diffrent? Even worse, it was me (potentially) doing it.

    While I think an execution is by far the safest way to handle someone with so much power in their own form and followers around the planet who would empower him again if given half the chance... I'd rather see him branded, magically and physically disabled from being able to ever run again and forced to rebuild the areas he destroyed when he released the Heart.
    Praise the Quest Writers for they give life to otherwise boring expansions.

    No, THIS would be really lame.

Garrosh will be a mid expansion raid boss with a whole new arsenal and new plans to help take over Azeroth with the Burning Legion who promises him his Throne in Orgrimmar be returned to Garrosh.

    I'm aware this will probably NEVER happen because blizzard sucks at storytelling.
    I know it's somewhat cliche, but I really, really like this idea.

    Lol, I was thinking that Garrosh was going to be punished the same way Illidan was but this kinda made my day. Thanks!

    Garrosh is very strong and i think Shado Pan can train him into monk, so he will understand his mistakes and be good orc.

    Very unlikely. In Lore he is already established as a warrior, he even represents warriors in Hearthstone, I doubt he will suddenly become a monk...

    He will be left alive in captivity. Blizz will reserve the redemption option.

    Garrosh lives, but he's given life imprisonment. He becomes Hannibal Lecter to Anduin's Clarice.

    What's the difference between anti-hero and villain?

    Other: Jaina Executes Garrosh during his trial, when he is exiled from Azeroth since he is from Draenor, she doesn't like it & kills him, While Varian & Thrall are shocked by this. she turns on The Alliance calling them cowards like the Horde & flees. The Kirin Tor is torn apart & turned against the Alliance & Horde.

    Anti-Hero = Does things for the good of the people even if it means hurting others or doing things that are deemed illegal/immoral.Villain = Does nothing good for the people and has motives to usually benefit themselves and only them.
