    Archimonde, Kil'jaeden, Akama, Ner'zhul or Gorefiend if the teaser is reliable.

    Khadgar if it's a troll teaser.

    The green eyes and sheer size of it would indicate Archimonde...

    Shapes around the head and shape of "legs" indicates Vashj... (Who didn't have green eyes and wasn't exceptionally big)

    I think it's Vashj. Dota nostalgia btw
    This world can have but one emperor!

    Green eyes? Dark Portal? Lich King expansion coming out to Hearthstone next week?
    Pretty sure it's gonna be Ner'zhul

    I think it is Maiev, recently she has always been portrayed with glowing green eyes.

    Probably this is a bug, but person who maked it, that portrait was placed close to Raynor. Funny enough, yesterday Stukow was released.

    Warcraft event? Hearthstone promotion?
    That's probably just a new brawl portrait.

Ner'zhul is also an option, he's the only orc outside of Gul'dan that I know of who has green eyes.

    Edit: Guess it could be Liadrin or something aswell.
    If people actually realized the figure is only like 1/4th the size of the portal itself to notice the green eyes instead of thinking it's like archimonde or something (not you specifically) that would be wonderful lol. It seems like an orc, hell the silhouette actually looks a tad more human then orc... nerzhul seems legit though

    Meh, the size of the portal has changed as many times as it's been shown. It could be massive like in Outland or tiny like in The Black Morass, which means the character can be human sized or Archimonde sized.

    True, and here I figured we'd finally be getting kelthuzad (before this was all teased). I can maybe see him being launched after the hearthstone stuff but eh who knows.

    It can still be anyone. I don't even think the green eyes are necessarily a clue. All that picture shows is that the next hero will come from the Warcraft universe.

    I'm split between Ner'zhul and Maiev, they both have green eyes and are connected to the dark portal and outland. Ner'zhul obviously has a strong connection to the dark portal and the teaser is quite similar to some of his actions such as this image from the TCG.


    He is also related to the void and shadows from WoD. On the other hand his dabbling in void magic, fel magic and shamanism leads to a lack of cohesive identity, as he simply doesn't have the basis for a kit in lore.

    Maiev on the other hand hasn't been depicted interacting directly with the Dark Portal, but has a a stronger connection to dark silhouettes, she's also probably wider known than Ner'zhul, despite being far less lore relevant. She also has a much clear identity as she is a Warcraft 3 hero. As for counter points, the silhouette appears masculine and her connection through the dark portal is relatively tenuous which begs the question why use it as her Teaser? All in all I'd place it at like a 70/25/5 split in favor of Ner'zhul and with the 5 being the other option.

    If it's Mannoroth, Archimonde, Maiev, Akama, Vashj or Grommash I'm gonna so happy! I haven't been this hyped since legion launch day. I don't think they would release Ner'zhul so fast after Gul'dan.

    You're not allowed to discuss conspiracy theories on mmo-champion, which makes me wonder what they're trying to hide.

    Body shape wise it seems to be an orc.. Could be a draenei too, though most Eredar/Draenei have some type of horns.. Could also be Teron Gorefiend.

    I'm not so sold on Ner'zhul. We already have 2 shamans and a warlock. I can't imagine him as anything other than a shaman with a darker twist (not as dark as warlocks, with more connection to death magic than fel, but still). Grom is not an option, we already have Samuro covering all of the blademaster skills. I'd say it could be Blackhand, maybe as a multi-class assassin/tank. The majority of releases this past year have been melee or ranged with really short range, though, it might be about time we get a real ranged character.
