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.

    The cinematic was pretty cool, though I feel like they're setting up Jaina to be the next Garrosh

    6.4 Siege of Dalaran?!

    So, is this the alliance only one? As well, any idea where in game you can see the cinematic same with the dw and lich king one.

    Was talking about the first one that had the people talking. Looked fine

    Still wish Varians son died would of been a better scene seeing Thrall and Varian fight over Garroshes fate having the Pandas step in stopping them briefly with a Panda trick and scooping him off.

    Looks like it's Thrall, judging by the fact he was clearly taking the Horde's side, and stood by them at the end when Varian was threatening this new new Horde.

    Oh well. Personally I would've preferred Rexxar to be the warchief but I still like Vol'jin.

    As I predicted , the head of the rebels, Voljin!

    Now someone can explain me why the King doesn't kill horde heads taking advantage of the moment?
    Why they do a war without get anything!?

    Worse thing about it for me was (and has been) that Metzen just HAS to keep voicing two major lore characters, and the only difference is Thrall's voice being more gruff.

    Really happy for availed and anvilmar. Still on anvilmar too...yay... anvilmar doesn't blow.

    I knew it, Garrosh isnt dead(yet). So Thrall is the orc leader? Why does he want to take a hammer to Garrosh's head? I know he is pissed at the betrayal at Garrosh's hand but it usually Thrall that wants to make peace with everybody, although so does Jaina and we see how Garrosh has changed her.

    Expected, obvious, and highly disappointing. One would think they'd use the end of an expansion to set something dramatic in motion, but I guess they can't jump over their own shadow after all and spice up things a little. Why revitalize an aging game anyway? It's not like people are jumping ship left and right or anything.

    Very weak move, Blizzard. You had the chance to be in the spotlight again with something awe-inspiring, instead all we get is one-dimensional character stereotypes and platitudes. The coming of a new Warchief is an epic, climactic moment - one of the most important events in recent WoW history. And now it will forever be remembered as a bland disappointment and completely generic story development.

    There would have been so many possibilities! Anything from Blood Elf supremacy to a Forsaken grab for power... but now? To end... like THIS?

    Hell yeah! Best choice if you ask me!

    Oh would you people stop whining? I think this is a great cinematic and who didn't expect vol'jin in the first place? Seriously I knew it all along since 5.3 he was leading his men. But I'm still waiting to see the horde cinematic.

    Well ... depending on what we see in the Horde cinematic, I near exactly predicted the ending of SoO nearly two months ago
