    I remain unconvinced. 13 more bosses makes this quite an underwhelming expansion in terms of content.

    I think this is the most likely thing to happen.

Same animations and structure, but the outside looks totally different. Sorry for that minor correction.
    No, thank you for the correction. Mistake on my part, a reskin is exactly what i want.

    I mean be that as it may with an underwhelming expansion it's still 99% likely that this is the end. Which I'm so ready for because we need to get the fuck off Draenor. I really hope Blizzard learned their lesson in regards to staying the hell away from time travel expansions.

    So here is my prediction. This will most likely be the final tier of the expansion as it would have netted 3 raids and 2 tiers. May possibly leave room for another raid but definitely not another tier. And last raid would be a smaller number of bosses just as the beginning was...so that the two middle raids serve as the meat of the expansion and the two on the ends are the opener and closer. As to what will happen with grommash and gul'dan i suspect they need a way to tie us back into azeroth proper. Possibly gul'dan working with grommash to find some other way besides the dark portal to get to azeroth and us having to stop them. The story needs to be completed. Or perhaps they do make it to our reality and plan on changing things which forces us to come back to our time and place to stop them. Whatever they do I would take bets that they are the lynchpins in getting us back to azeroth. Dont forget this is just a temporary diversion, this version of draenor. Our draenor still has become outlands and suffered being sundered.
    The big hole with this expansion is the complete lack of any Titan artifacts. We have the burning legion but there is not even the smallest remnant of a connection to the world making Titans. Nor any mention of their counterparts the old ones. Which then infers that their are more powerful and deeper rooted forces that we may need to take heed of other than those two factions. Can the burning legion be even more of a Celestial force than either the Titans or the Old Ones. If this is so, what of the ever mysterious Light. How will these ideas play out in future expansions. This all makes for a whole lot of interesting possibilities for the future of WoW.

    This doesn't mean anything.

    They could simply be pulling an MGS2 and have Gul'Dan take off for Azaroth.

    Honestly, given how there's so much rehashed lore - I've been saying for a while now that they'll have Gul'Dan head to the tomb of Sargeras in our Azaroth - and that will lead us into a Naga-based expansion (since the tomb is quite well under the sea...)

    I've listened through the audio files on Wowhead and although nothing with archimonde in it seems to play, I can say that Grom is being tortured, resists, thanks for freeing him, and tells us to fuck off so he can make a trophy out of his torturer's skull or something, and also that Gul'dan resurrects Mannoroth to keep us busy while he goes to summon Archimonde.

    Nah, that should be for the actual Legion expansion. It also has to be about the Iron Horde. Something along the lines of Bloodbreaker or Vanquisher of Fel Iron.

    Uh... The Rustbringer?

    We've been expecting to fight Grommash and Gul'dan this whole expansion. Whatever Legion twist we were expecting, not fighting EITHER of them isn't what we expected.
    I would really like it if a major antagonist could survive for more than a few patches this time around. Blizzard are chewing through all of their villains without really creating any new ones, and if at least Gul'dan survives this expansion might actually play a bigger role in WoW's story at large.

    Listening to the sound files its cool that we dont get to fight Grom but i wonder what happens to grom when this is finished?

    I bet this is gonna be another huge plot thread blizz is totally gonna ignore except maybe in a another crappy book

    While this all looks like the finality, and a good one at that, this is the first xpac since BC where we dont know who the final enemy is. I mean, the instant ICC, DS and SoO were datamined you knew that was the end.

    But here? I want to see what Blizzard's response is to the innevitable "is this the finak tier?" questions. How will they handle that?

    They'll probably say yes because it clearly is the final tier. Saying otherwise at this point as more information is datamined just becomes an effort at denial.

    Well we'll know for sure if a cinematic gets datamined/teased.

    Finally guessed the expansion right for the first time since MoP.

    Although I'm really pissed about the 2 tiers, I think this is going to be the final one.

    The only one that can be Equal to Archimonde as final boss is Kil'jaeden, nd, if we actually have a 3rd tier, it's going to be him, maybe in Farahlon, but pretty much impossible at this point.

    OOOOOR, maybe that's going to happen, and we have another legendary not related with the ring, a weapon, hopefully.

    I DO WANT A 3RD FUCKING TIER, GOD D':

    If this expansion goes down with none of the "warlords of draenor" in the final raid. Their story telling is even worse than I thought it was.

    It was a joke. I don't think they'll really do a naga expansion. I think they'll seqwey into a Legion expansion and beat that horse for a while.

    Well Groms in the raid according to the voice files but we rescue him not kill him. As for the rest of the warlords they are all dead except kilrogg and he is in the raid.

    Honestly, I don't mind Time Travel as an idea for an expansion at all. What I did mind was how they hyped up how incredibly dangerous the Iron Horde was and kept emphasizing how this was a "suicide mission" and "so incredibly savage" and we land in a world in which we almost immediately get interdimensional backup through portals, have plenty of workers building for us and the planet isn't particularly more dangerous than Azeroth. I mean, hell, they tried to make elementals seem more "savage" by calling them "Furies" and having Khadgar comment on how "primal they are" but our elemental lords kill the crap out of you if you so much as peak into their realm when they don't need help and then *sigh*... the Draenic elemental lords are like "Sup bro, wanna hang out and work on our problems for us kthx."

    On topic though, I imagine Grommosh is just going to end up getting killed outside the raid or be part of a boss fight revealed closer to release.
    Soothing Mist:"Healing them for a minor amount every 0.5 sec, until you take any other action."
    Jade Serpent Statue: "The statue will also begin casting Soothing Mist on your target. healing for 50% as much as yours. "
    [What's half of minor?]
    "Statue casts Soothing Mist at a nearby ally for toddler healing."
