    At most, anduin will be the first boss of the very last raid of the expansion. Kinda like wrathion in nyalotha.

    Generally not a concern of mine since Blizzard even brings back already defeated bosses. And now Shadowlands is like a grand final good bye World Tour where all your favourite dead bosses are back..some we ally with, some we fight again....

    If we beat the Jailer and they need him back...they just do it. We beat the Lich King...they need another Lich King...we get another Lich King...etc....
    they've only brought back a few. it's fairly rare. I think he will get the Sargeras treatment; we beat him and lock him up again but don't kill him.

    Sargeras and Denathrius are BFFs from High school...

    Currently looks like the end boss of 9.2 is a legal system...

    I think we will see some first rumblings of the next patch major patch in autuum, but I doubt the release window was ever going to be this year.

    Surprised Denathrius didn't make it onto the list.

    I don't think it'll be him. Though I think he may try and swoop in to take the Jailer's place. Either before or after we defeat him.

    I bet 100k it will be Afriasabi, and the fight will be basically the players trying to stop him from groping Sylvanas.

    Well to be honest, Josh Keaton is just such a wholesome dude so I wouldn't blame her. Josh has many years of experience and has voiced a plethora of different characters across many franchises. It's not his fault the character's writing is a bit ...bland.

    I was thinking that we might face Helya again in 9.2 but after following the questline that probably won't happen. I honestly can't think of anyone other than the Jailer who we would face this expansion. which means that 9.2 would be the final patch of the expansion. that being said, there are still a few weeks left of the questline to go so that might give us some hints.

    I actually think we will kill Anduin. Jailer will sacrifice him so that he can escape and start his work or whatever. Then he will tell us all he knows before dying

    the post you quoted was before that tweet was sent. obviously that changes things, we don't know how long they will be off work or how much of 9.2 has been done.

    Most likely SL will end with 9.2 due to the pandemic, how I would round things out, and Zooval will be the end boss. The ending of SoD, for all its 100% flawed nature, looked like the setup for the final phase of the BBEG's plan as it invoked the "darkest before dawn" trope and completely missed what makes it a shit trope that should never be invoked.

    No other choice than Zovaal. They need to wrap up Shadowlands to get to next expansion in 2022.

    With the pandemic delay and the lawsuit stopping all development, they don't have rime for 9.3 left.

  16. #116
    Kotick... obviously. I bet if they make him the end boss, Subs will go over 10mil in a day.

    Could be a two or three fight encounter like Spine of Deathwing and Carapace of N'zoth.

    The first one will be whatever mechanism set in motion by Zovaal, with Anduin involved somewhere. Then we break Anduin free in this fight. The fight ends when we realised it's too late and Zovaal technically has won and has done what he wanted to do.

    The second fight will part 2 of that same mechanism. This time we're fighting to escape. Maybe we manage to find the mcguffin to stop more damage from happening. Said mcguffin could very well be Anduin himself.

    The third last fight is we're about to escape, but Zovaal personally steps in to finish us off or to stop us from escaping with said mcguffin.

    In order for Blizzard to redeem itself they will change last boss to Alex Afrasiabi and to defeat it you need a female only raid.

    we're in the Shadowlands, where all the dead heroes have gone.
    Fel is famous for consuming/destroying souls, and Varian was obliterated by Fel. It's a safe assumption to assume his soul was eliminated and no longer exists.

    why aren't we trying to find and recruit them all? Varian, Doomhammer, Cairn, Lothar, Ravencrest, Fordring...
    They died prior to the Arbitar breaking, so they could be in a massive range of other afterlives in the Shadowlands.
