Will Garrosh Hellscream Return in the Shadowlands?

Recommended Posts

33316-mists-of-pandaria-was-released-5-y

Earlier today, Blizzard unveiled the upcoming Shadowlands animated series titled Afterlives. It's very similar in style to Battle for Azeroth's Warbringers. One of the close-ups in the trailer includes a chained screaming Orc, which looks like Garrosh Hellscream.

We do not know if this is truly Garrosh, but the screams in the animated series trailer sound somewhat familiar. It would be interesting to see why he ended up in Revendreth in the first place.

We need to wait until the premiere at Gamescom 2020 on August 27 to learn more.

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, here's exactly the time stamp with the screaming Orc figure.

Garrosh did nothing wrong!

 

...you know, aside from all the racism (Species-ism?),  magic nuke bombing of a neutral city, complaining endlessly about the horde being corrupted by the legion before purposefully being corrupted by old god juice, and laying waste to Pandaria for existing.

He did all of this to ensure the prosperity of his people. Out of all the so-called 'Warchiefs' Garrosh is the only one that managed to industrialize and bring progress. He wantes nothing more than glory and good living conditions for his people. As far as I'm concerned Lok-freaking-tar and see you in the Shadowlands, Garry!

Even if it's Garrosh, perhaps he will only appear in this cinematic and not in game. Logically, we should see a ton of people, like where is Grom, Varian, Fandral, Lothar, every Saurfang and many others. I guess they can always blame it on the Maw consuming souls or something. Still, it's just too convenient how we are going to meet only selected few. ?

Garrosh would've had the best redemption arc if they had plopped him into the role of Saurfang, standing up to Sylvanas.

 

Saurfang was a great pick because he represented the OG orcs, but Garrosh had all those Cataclysm in-game cutscenes standing tall against Sylvanas' ideologies and killing innocents and whatnot.

 

Bombed a military harbor? Yeah. But he also executed one of his own orc commanders for bombing an innocent druidic village with children.

Please be Grom and not Garrosh. That could have way more interesting story telling.

I don't see why it's a mystery that Garrosh wound up in Revendreth, it's specifically a place for reformation from your mortal sins, chief among them being pride, the same flaw/Sha that made Garrosh corruptible by Y'shaarj in the first place. If you repent, you can either be sent to a different realm or join the ranks of the Venthyr, if you don't repent, you're banished to the Maw.

edit - If Garrosh repents, I could easily see him joining the Necrolords, with their might makes right mentality.

Imagine Garrosh being transformed into bulky vampiric elf-lookalike. I wonder though, if time is different in Shadowlands or some trials just take that long. Kael died years ago, yet it looks like he only started his repentance, while Garrosh died more recently, and it seems they are at similar stage. Anyway, at this point we should see loads of familiar faces, but we likely won't get to meet many of them, no explanation for it or them being sucked into Maw.

Honestly I'd love for Maladraxxus to have tons of former baddies that walking past their torment triggers dialogue when they recognize one of the 'champions' that sent them into the afterlife.

I wonder about dragons, would Deathwing and his black dragons be somewhere too? And what he would turn into!

I don't know about Deathwing, but there's a spoiler in the Ardenweald preview here if you're curious.

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

      Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
      Interview Highlights
      There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.

      We've skipped one week due to BlizzConline, but we're back checking out the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Total Runs Recorded
      We've looked at the total runs recorded for each DPS spec during the 10th week of Mythic Season 1. Based on the numbers, we filter out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      Unholy Death Knight remains the most popular melee specialization for Mythic+ with more than 2 million runs accumulated so far in Shadowlands Season 1. Havoc Demon Hunter is second, and in third place, we have Outlaw Rogue (up from 4th position).
      The least popular melee specialization is Survival Hunter. The spec swapped places with Assassination Rogue.
      1st: Unholy Death Knight - 2,097,235 runs 2nd: Havoc Demon Hunter - 1,637,153 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 1,609,677 runs 4th: Retribution Paladin - 1,567,321 runs 5th: Windwalker Monk - 1,484,006 runs 6th: Arms Warrior - 1,306,343 runs 7th: Fury Warrior - 1,112,379 runs 8th: Subtlety Rogue - 975,157 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 841,074 runs 10th: Feral Druid - 377,938 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 346,118 runs 12th: Assassination Rogue - 100,465 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 98,163 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in at around +16, where most specs start losing their share of representation to the metaclasses. Some non-meta specs stay stable in mid-range keys and only begin disappearing at higher levels.

      Share of Melee DPS Specs at Each Key Level (Weekly Top 500 Runs)
      To see how the meta changes during the season, we sample the top 50 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6,000 keys) for each week. Next, we count the number of times each spec appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
      The data has a zig-zag quality to it. Spec numbers go up and down each week, which is the Tyrannical/Fortified split effect. On Tyrannical weeks, pushers are likely to bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts.

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      Nobody is going to beat Marksmanship Hunter. The spec has accrued almost 5 million runs in Season 1 so far. Balance Druid is second with over 3.2 million runs. Fire Mage occupies 3rd position.
      The least popular spec is Demonology Warlock, with just +30k runs in 2 weeks.
      1st: Marksmanship Hunter - 4,902,342 runs 2nd: Balance Druid - 3,262,862 runs 3rd: Fire Mage - 3,077,748 runs 4th: Shadow Priest - 1,897,133 runs 5th: Affliction Warlock - 1,434,623 runs 6th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 1,275,258 runs 7th: Frost Mage - 1,120,937 runs 8th: Destruction Warlock - 875,969 runs 9th: Elemental Shaman - 853,552 runs 10th: Arcane Mage - 432,427 runs 11th: Demonology Warlock - 305,421 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance

      You can instantly go from Hated to Revered with the Netherwing faction this week and unlock some really cool mounts!
      Sign of the Twisting Nether increases Burning Crusade reputation gains from combat and quests by 50% this week. The buff is beneficial if you're interested in Netherwing mounts. If you played during the Burning Crusade, you probably know how tedious the grind was back then.
      Normally, you would go from Hated to Neutral with the Netherwing faction when you complete the quest line that unlocks the faction.
      With Sign of the Twisting Nether, you will go from Hated straight to Revered! If you haven't done the quest line yet, now's the best time to do so! You can start the quest line at the crystals south of Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley (Outland), where you need to talk to a blood- elf quest-giver (Mordenai) wandering around the crystals. You can find more information here.
      At Exalted with the Netherwind faction, you will receive one Netherwing mount free and can buy the rest for 200 Gold from the vendor. The available mounts are:
      Reins of the Azure Netherwing Drake Reins of the Cobalt Netherwing Drake Reins of the Onyx Netherwing Drake Reins of the Purple Netherwing Drake Reins of the Veridian Netherwing Drake Reins of the Violet Netherwing Drake Here's a screenshot to better illustrate their appearance.
