The Banshee Queen is born as her old self dies to Arthas.

She dies once by suicide.

She dies a second time, to Godfrey.

Third death missing.

As people pointed out in this thread, her death to Arthas could be, to the Void, her birth. Maybe only the other two, already as undead, may count.

Her "birth": she goes to the Light, is pulled back into undeath. The Ranger General dies, the Banshee Queen is born.
"First" death: she goes to the darkness. Makes a deal to escape it.
"Second" death: again, descend into darkness. Her Val'kyr sacrifice themselves to rescue her.

Now, she has less and less Val'kyr. Her final death may be drawing near.

I find that to be unlikely and dumb but it could be a possibility, okay. But a minor nitpick: The Banshee Queen was born when Sylvanas reposessed her dead body not before. Before she was just the first Banshee.

Not the first, actually; there were Highborne banshees before that. Presumably, at least; it makes more sense for all of the Highborne ghosts in Kalimdor, the Broken Isles, etc. to have been that way for millennia, rather than imagining that they died thousands of years ago but that their restless spirits only showed up a handful of years ago.

For what it's worth, the WC3 website talks about how the banshees were female elves killed during the War of the Ancients and later recruited by Ner'zhul, but the manual says they were elves killed by the Scourge.

To be fair, they seemed to appear as both in WC3; the ones in Lordaeron were high elves, while the ones that the Legion woke up all over the Felwood were presumably night elves.

The Scourge probably ended up having a mix of both , as it generally made a habit of reinforcing its own numbers by scooping up any local, pissed-off ancient ghosts it happened across.

True, that.

You guys are forgetting there is a simpler alternative: that Blizzard simply forgot their own lore and forgot that Sylvannas already died three times. So this comment about her third death actually should mean her 4th death, and now that the game was already published with that comment they don't want to take it back.

It may have been the case, but they can just handwave it. "Oh, there was no mistake! Her death by Arthas' hand was, from PoV of the Void, her birth."

Nah the simpler alternative is that it has nothing to do with Sylvanas or Jaina.

Well, if we want to be nitpicky, Azeroth never died either. She was injured, seriously so, but never crossed over to the Titan Shadowlands.

The Wound mini map has been updated and this PTR build is a release candidate. Looks like Antorus might be opening soon.

The raids release doesn't necessarily correlate with the patch. If it releases before mid December then that makes Tomb less than 6 months and in that case they better hope the next expansion hits no development snags and is out by April or May.

The expansion isnt going to follow the same release cycle

They apparently expect Sargeras' fate and The Wound to be common knowledge by Blizzcon, so...

The original description of the Sargeras shirt was a summary of the raid's conclusion, so that means whoever wrote it thought that would be out by the time Blizzcon was.

Or the marketing guy just messed up. It wouldn't be the first time.

Even if hypothetically they released the patch next week or the week after that still doesn't give most players a chance to see the cinematic by November 3 unless the expectation is for everyone to just youtube it. In which case why does it matter, may as well spoil it at Blizzcon. Most people who would spoil themselves via youtube already know via datamining about the wound caused by Sargeras.

I've said it before they don't need to have the ending cinematic be known for the expansion announcement. Just as we didn't have to know about the Tomb cinematic to know that 7.3 will be in Argus. They've been doing a good job with raid tier length thus far. it would be silly to cut ToS for such a reason. Just as it was to cut Ulduar short. It needs to last until a week or two minimum after Blizzcon to be of a decent length. Especially when more than likely Antorus will be longer even if the content drought isn't as bad as previous expansions.

Yep. Which is why I find it silly when people rule out Sylvanas. There is no interpretation of the whispers where the prophecy can be taken as 100% literal. Most prophecies aren't 100% literal. There is a valid interpretation of the Banshee Queen only dying twice.

Here are (what is assumed to be but very likely) the Seabraid Stallion's sound files.

Sounds very weird and/or undead. The summoning sounds sound like they're the same as the Steel Warhorse but I'm not sure.

There is the possibility that the raid may not be quite ready yet, I mean they're still testing LFR right now up until the 24th, so it may even launch the week of Blizzcon.

According to marlamin, there's WMO files indicating that Sargeras' sword is supposed to be sticking out of the raised, black portion of the Wound, but they're encrypted and not loading on the sandbox this was taken from.

In other news, according The Know, the Nostalrius legacy server debacle continues, with its sucessor Elysium having shut down due to claims that two of the developers for it embezzled thousands of dollars!

(wow story starts at 7:21, can't make it show up as a hyperlink for some reason).
