    Ah alright thanks. The thing lasts a month so we could be waiting a while.

    Chances they actually announce the new expansion this early? Might build hype to contest the deflating opinion on Shadowlands.

    I wonder wtf is up with the cinematic. Is “Anduin’s goodbye” him saying he cannot do anything to stop Zovaal’s mind control shit? Or that he’s telling everyone his future plans? I doubt that tbh...

    It has to be a death scene. There’s no way it’s not imo.

    He probably gives up hope seeing that he cannot be freed even when he sees the compass.

    The devs literally said that Anduin's mind control by the Jailer is an event that will change him him for years to come. We also still have that comic of him being old.

    It's impossible he actually dies here.

    Ye, you know they kill characters based on their planned story? "Balls" have nothing to do with it.

    Because you've been fixating on that well before we got any of the 9.1 story and won't let anything get you off that topic, even though nobody else is seriously considering it.

    Sylvanas will reunite with her good spirit shard and become whole once again and revive.
    Revived Sylvanas will go on to redeem corrupted Anduin when all other methods were impossible. She will earn redemption through redeeming him.

    Cue 10.0 and High King Anduin and High Queen Sylvanas rule the combined Horde & Alliance faction. They have a son.

    Aight, so.

    He's either dead and the image we see of him is the last bit of his essence dissipating.
    Or we manage to connect to him in some manner and he says his goodbyes because he thinks he cant get rid of the Jailers control.
    Or he is dead and this is a goodbye message he left behind.

    Option 1 and 3 are practically the same, but the dissipating soul trope is probably more inline with the current expansion theme.

    That article doesnt exaclty give much of anything to go on really.

    The cutscene is called "Anduin's Goodbye" and Anduins shows up as either a ghost or a hologram and says something, but that something could be any number of different things really.
    It could be him sending a message on behalf of the Jailer. It could be him legitimately dead and these are his final words. It could be him explaining how he allowed himself to be turned by the Jailer to prove a point to Sylvanas or whatever.

    In the end we can only really guess at what exactly happens here. There are a myriad of options beyond the worst case scenario where he sacrificed himself to save Sylvanas.

    There is also the option similar to 2 where his goodbye is him being controlled as the Jailers mouthpiece saying something ominous.

    I am more inclined to believe option 2 though. It fits Anduins character as self-sacrificing. It allows players to feel invested in the story going forward. And it gives us an interesting foil to Arthas when he inevitably returns.

    I'm more concerned Anduin's gonna become the next Lich King or something than he dies.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    Looks like we jumped too fast to conclusions.

    I don't like "clear enemy" races. They're unrealistic. They're also not particularly WarCrafty. Even the Light and Order have internal disagreements.
    "Unrealistic" Unrealistic compared to the real world yes but thats fine sometimes we enter a Fantasy world for simple enemies like that.

    It's probably when he becomes Lichduin.

    As the wowhead article describes, it could just be an echo, possibly made visible my some (anima) magic shenanigans. Maybe he talks to himself in his last few lucid moments before he becomes a full on sockpuppet.

    lol, I wanted Sylvanas' death, but if they kill Anduin this expansion might have one good outcome. He's been an awful character since MoP. Nevermind though, they'll bring him back one way or another, maybe super duper light infused. Anduin dying and be gone forever? Don't be a fool.

    Seems it may be an echo. But the location of where the cubes are is imo also pretty important. I think it’s both a death memorial and an echo as to what happened to Anduin

    I doubt Light will be a big factor next patch. Death and Light makes about less sense than Life and Death for 9.2.

    He ain't dead, it's an echo.
