It's fake.

The only sha in the Jade Forest, is the Sha of Doubt. <---He is in the Temple of the Jade Serpent AND has another skeleton/model.


The Sha of Anger/Hatred and maybe Fear use the posted model.

The Sha of Doubt/Despair and Violence (?) share another model (If I am correct).

It's a placeholder for the cinematic when the Sha of Doubt comes out of the statue.

Any reason why it's unlikely? I thought the wrathgate was an excellent idea and something I'm sad we don't see more off.

Hopefully they will work more on Patch trailers. Hour of Twilight was just embarrassing.

Because it's unlikely we're going to get cinematics like that all over? Those take a lot of time to make so it all comes down to whether that is important enough and a big enough deal for them to spend that extra time not just doing a normal in-game 'cinematic'. Since it is the big awakening of the Sha of Pandaria moment it's possible it may get a bigger cinematic but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

I would love it if we got Uldum like cinematics in game but with actual voice overs instead of just text.

I don't see where I implied that we would get them all over. Its a revolutionising scene between the Alliance and Horde and one of the main villains so it has definitely got the potential to be one. I hope it is.

They got annoying fast.

Kill a guy. Cutscene of you running away. Fade to black. Back in front of quest giver.

Flying a short way is too hard?

Chris Metzen: Isn't Kul Tiras burning in slag? ...from, uh, Blood of Our Fathers? ...No?

The Green Shirt Guy: No, it survived, and, in fact, it is- was around off-screen in vanilla WoW and through Wrath of the Lich King.

Chris Metzen: Right, of course. Uh. Yeah, Fargo, what's up with that?

Uldum wasn't the only place to use those cinematics, its simply the only place to overuse them. I remember enjoying the one near the end of Burning Steppes line, regarding the 3 main Blackrock orcs, a great deal.

I don't really mind Uldum, the Harrison Jones quests were a bit boring, that's it.
But it NEEDS voices.

Oh and sorry guys, I really thought the giant Sha was a joke.

We will surely get some wrathgate-cinematics, Cata had this too (Worgen, Goblins and Dragon Soul). But they MUST be epic.

Yeah the cinematic type things they do work much better when there are voice overs than when there are not.

I was under the impression it would be that kind of cinematic for that particular event.

I'm so glad they changed the Lorewalker Cho quests, he was kinda boring before that. I especially loved the choice of what I wanted to paint on his canvas. (I picked "something sexy"... yeah, that's totally going to stay after beta I'm sure.)

I forgot what it was named but it's the quest he gives you first instead of the meditation one. (Which is now the last quest.)

I don't think WoWhead has much about beta quests atm either anyway.
