New Warchief Revealed
Spoilers ahead! Congratulations to Availed of US-Anvilmar for being the first to defeat Garrosh on 10 player normal difficulty!

Vale of Eternal Blossoms - Garrosh Defeat Cutscene
After Garrosh's defeat, there is an extra cutscene in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

Patch 5.4 - Visions of Time: Courting Destiny
Patch 5.4 adds a quest line on the Timeless Isle that involves working for Kairoz of the Keepers of Time. He is on the Timeless Isle because the Bronze Dragonflight is not as powerful as it once was, only being able to catch furtive glimpses through time. He has created an hourglass that will allow for a window into the timeways, but you must collect 50 x Epoch Stones to make it usable.

After collecting the stones, you embark on a series of weekly quests to use the Vision of Time in different locations to calibrate the Vision of Time. Kairoz eventually will reveal that there is a traitor among the Bronze Dragonflight.

As the hourglass grows more powerful, he will send you to the Temple of the White Tiger to see a glimpse of Garrosh and Anduin, which is the scene you see below.

    Honestly disappointed. An Orc should've been Warchief. Besides that, who will be the Orc faction leader?

    Good grief, the most pathetic choice they could have made besides the goblin. Well, there goes my Horde pride. Might as well faction change.

    @ Itisamuh Good we dont want you horde anyway. Faction change. As for the warchief saw it coming. As for the video, this dude needs a better computer to be streaming. Shit is all choppy and the video pauses but the audio continues.

    Garrosh stays alive for trial... there's our 5.5 storyline.

    What a twist. (not)

    Well, I'm not surprised.

    Lor'themar Theron would have been my pick.

    kinda boring...hope the horde one is more interesting. Not seeing what happens to Garrosh is extremely anti-climactic

    Got a real strong inclination someone from the alliance will do something to piss Vol'jin and the horde. It's just gotta be, why else would Vol'jin even think for a second about following Garrosh's path. Either someone almost completely forgotten from the Alliance's past will stir things up or Jaina herself. It's just gotta be, otherwise; they'll need to change the name to World of Peacecraft and that won't be any fun.

    IMO expected and anticlimactic.

    I love what varian said in the end, i would of loved it more if he did what jaina wanted tho and just smashed them all right there and then lol , jaina should have just taken her chance and blew them all away. but still not too bad an ending for alliance i think.
