    Step right up, step right up, place your bets here. Who killed our dinner party host right in his own castle? And how? And why? 

    No spoilers, please, this is for fun. 

    My money is on the Fae.  Now druids don't generally feel like the "cold-blooded killer" type, but they have plenty of access to plant-based poisons and I think the Court is taking the anima situation very seriously. 

    Your guesses?

    Maybe this is a copout, but I honestly expect the answer to be "none of them". Is "Stewart the Steward killed him" really a satisfying answer? No, and the same is true for the others; a story that puts a focus on one of the 10 classes would be a disservice to the other nine. Plus murder-mysteries are always reliant on some kind of twist.

    My money is on Prince Renathal. Purely basing it on his portrait which seems to have some shared full scenery artwork with the hero portrait of Sire Denathrius.

    I have not been following the Murder at Castle Nathria clues or the WoW lore, so I am probably totally wrong here though.

    Since there's no solo adventure for this expansion, chances are this is merely a theme, never meant to be concluded. I highly doubt the midset would suddenly just spring a killer out of nowhere.

    And besides which, Im not even aware its possible to even kill something that's technically neither alive nor dead.

    We might as well see a community based murderer hunt determining the murderer, akin to the Horde vs Alliance battle during Alterac, i.e. T5 might not have a clue either. :D

    I can see the solution being a central part of the expansion event.

    This.

    "Seeing the teaser- this expansion will be a murder mystery- Denatrhius dies and we try to figure out who is the murderer
    By the end of the expansion (or maybe in the mini-set?) the murderer will be revealed to also be the murder weapon- Remornia."

    Oh, I like the event idea. 

    I do think there will be some sort of conclusion, as the name of the expansion is MURDER at castle nathria, and one the diamond legendaries is Sherlock/Murloc Holmes. 

    We'll be finding out more, leaving room for some kind of Agatha Christie style twist.

    I’m pretty sure it’s Renethal… if you listen to his play quote he mentions that today will be the end of Denathrius reign or something like that

    This ain't no place for a hero

    Remornia is a weapon that belongs to Sire Denathrius in Warcraft lore.

    The Sentient blade even almost kills Prince Renethal in a World of Warcraft cutscene.

    Denthrius in lore betrayed the purpose of Venthyr (the nosferatu-looking dudes) and Renethal created kind of an opposition to his rule.
