This is just random mumblings but why do people theorize that there's a seventh Sha?

The Sha were summoned from the depths of the Emperor himself. They were the manifestations of the Emperor's fear, hatred, doubt, anger, violence, etc.

It's all mentioned in the Seven Burdens of Shaohao.

Now, some theorize that the seven burdens refer to the seven Sha but only 6 are mentioned and then his final sacrifice where he gave himself up to protect the land.

They don't really mention any other sha.

But that's just me....

Alexstrazsa is a red headed woman technically?

And for the 7 sha thing, think about it. The sha seem very Old Godish from what we have seen of them and the Old Gods. An old god, who apparently consisted of fear/despair ect., who had 7 heads. The sha are obviously related to him.
Then we have the 7 burdens of Shao hao. 7 burdens, but only 6 sha are mentioned. Why would it be called the 7 burdens?

Basically, while is never says there are 7, it's assumed because of the clues left behind. If there isn't a 7nth one, oh well, but chances are there is.

Mantid say that the old god they worship is a emotion manipulating seven-headed hydra that was killed and left shadows in the land. Assumption that these shadows are the sha and they correspond to each of his heads

There are 2 more wrath gate like cinematics in the Wandering Isle.

The first one is pretty interesting. it shows Ji set the explosion and the ship was blasted away as Shen-zin Su started bleeding. Aysa cried and blamed Ji for everything. Ji tried to comforted her and invited her to heal Shen-zin Su together. But Aysa was angry and turned him down, shooing him away. The last scene shows Ji's disappointing face.

The second one shows you are riding on a hot balloon, leaving the Wandering Isle and master Shang Xi's spirit bid you farewell.

I feel like there should be more, but if the five is all we get... that's still good.


Are all five of them already in game?

Taylor looks badass if that is him . It would be epic if neither Taylor or Nazgrim die due to there quite awesome starter zone rivalry and when we face the Legion i fully expect them to team up perfectly.

There's no "the 7th Sha",no such thing exist.

Shao Hao took the 7th "Lazy" as a positive emotion, and refused to drive it off.

He believes,it's the emotion "Lazy" that makes Pandaren peace and harmony.

So as we can see, 7 burdens,7 emotions,but only 6 Sha.

It's got the same skin as the "Darkened Broadsword of the ______", an uncommon (green) drop from areas with content suitable for low to mid-60's.

Don't you mean model though? Skin is the texture.

Oh yes, pardon. I was disappointed to see there aren't any similar skins in live or beta. The blue-green skin is okay, but Taylor's is very nice.

Amazing! It sounds like there will be more with the balloon, but the loading screen cuts it off.

Hmm, this is the first expansion they haven't updated the continent maps for. I would have at least expected the worgen and goblin to be replaced by the Genn and Gallywix artwork.

I was just thinking about this a little while ago. Maybe they decided not too for some reason?
