    So Sylvannas is going to take the Jailer's place, right?

    I think it's pretty obvious that they'll pull a Lich King 2.0 and after we defeat the Jailer, Sylvannas is going to take his place and be the ruler of the Maw.

    I just hope they'll surprise us and don't go this route. What do you guys think?

    Nah Arthas will be the jailer instead. You really think we're going to go all of Shadowlands without Athas?

    I mean, knowing they straight up, and confirmed by themselves, copy the MOP plot, on purpose, i can totally see they copying the WtLK plot and patting on their backs saying how awesome and nuanced it is

    apparently we only have 4 routes

    1- Kerrigan, redemption of some sort
    2- Trapped in the Maw for all eternity
    3- Taking the Janitor place
    4- killed/destroyed, essence dissipated.

    There was the whole "going to claim the true throne of power" thing with Azshara that could align. Seemed like it was supposed to be a false flag about her taking the LK's throne.

    And then there was the whole thing where Blizzard supposedly trademarked "the lich queen" or whatever.

    No, I highly doubt that would ever happen. Sylvanas' power comes from Zovaal himself. He could snap his fingers, and she'd be powerless. Zovaal was described by Blizzard as "Titan + +". There's no way Sylvanas would ever be able to become powerful enough to take his place as "The Jailer".

    If I have learnt anything in my years playing this game, it's never to say never.

    We start out killing gremlins, hogs and kobolds.
    We end up stopping cthun

    We start out killing hell boars
    We end up subduing kiljaeden

    We start out killing random undead
    We end up killing the Lich King

    We start out killing naga
    We end up killing a planet destroying dragon

    We start out killing monkeys and fish people
    We end up subduing the best orc to ever grace this world

    We start out killing normal orcs
    We end up killing archimonde

    We start out killing demons
    We end up killing a death titan

    We start out killing each other lul
    We end up killing nzoth in his own lair

    Honestly. All I see is an upward progression fueled by clarion call of "hey guys he drops an epic that increases dps by 200! And omg a mount on mythic!!"

    I am disappointed that when we zone into the maw they don't announce us like danaerys Targaryen given how many ppl we have sent there who start their dialogue with "pathetic mortal!"

    One thing is certain and that is that it will not be a suprise in the end.

    The story always ends in dissapointment. Most recently N zoth. We players always come up with the most interesting hooks only to find out it was the most obvious outcome all along.

    Its getting annoying, but what can you do with a 12+ game, you can only go that far..

    the only way sylvanus takes over the jailer's role is in chains, i.e. she loses her body, powers, allies and is just a banshee tied in chains as the new jailers. And heck, bonus we can have arthas be the one to keep watch on her for eternity

    The crooked shitposter with no eyes is watching from the endless thread.

    From the space that is everywhere and nowhere, the crooked shitposter feasts on memes.

    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Is there actual evidence of Arthas playing a role or is this just fan speculation? Wish they'd just let him stay dead

    Because we haven't. Who have the player characters(in a group btw), killed on their own from your list? Not C'Thun, Not Kil'jaeden, not Lich King, not Deathwing, Garrosh was a fight where we had no outside help?, not Archimonde, definitely not Argus, and not N'zoth.

    We've been a part of a group of characters who took them down and more often than not we've had a particularly powerful NPC or two giving us the aid needed to actually be able to kill/defeat them.

    I hope she dies betrayed by the Jailer.

    I don't believe Blizzard has ever pulled a swerve like that. The writing has never been that complicated. Evil characters are evil characters.

    AU-Grom started out as an antagonist, was betrayed, and then tried to aid us. But I would never say Au-Grom was EVIL. He was a warrior and conqueror in a wild land, but believed in honor. Sylvanas crossed the line into evil.

    Danaerys Targaryen didn't go out and fight people in hand to hand combat. Her army and Dothraki did it. And the dragons can't forget those

    My point is, of course we had help. But given that we start off as bumbling kobold and hog killers and end up as universe savers on spaceships it is fairly telling.

    Put it this way.

    "NoTHinG esCAPes tHE mAW

    Well....

    Except these pathetic mortals...

    ....who keep taking people in and out...wtf?!"
