Dark Heart of Pandaria
That would make sense as I haven't done that one yet.

The Heart is all that remains of the Old God Y'Shaarj. It's actually much larger than it appeared in the trailer; play the scenario mentioned above and see its real box for yourself. Before the trailer, it was actually a dormant bauble sealed under the earth (possibly by Norgannon, due to the suspicious amount of discs
associated with Mogu'shan architecture and its underground Titan secrets; it'd make sense that he'd have hand in the Heart's sealing. The arcane chains are convincing, also.) and watched over by Norushen
, at least up until the goblins dug too deep and this idiot
ran up and bothered it, with interesting results
With Crafty's death, it's safe to assume that what little "echo" of Y'shaarj's consciousness that made its way out of dormancy went back in, and stayed back in, until Garrosh brought it up and had the genius idea of giving Y'Shaarj a little wake-up slap by dumping his heart in the magical life-giving Pools of Power at Mogu'shan. Unfortunately, it works out exactly how Garrosh wanted it to, and Y'Shaarj comes back to life, though disembodied with his consciousness trapped within his heart. In the raid, this will end up working out for both Warchief and Old God, since what Garrosh wants is to control the full power of the Old God
, and what Y'Shaarj wants is an avatar through which he can wreak destruction on Azeroth
, as he's demonstrated with Crafty.Ultimately, Big Y gets his ghastly ass kicked for good.
