Interresting to see that Wrathion is helping his brother, I would not have thought he would do that. But I guess as it would have been an annoyance to have a corrupted dragon against him he chose to make a move.
Wrathion's matured, not just physically but in intellect and purpose. Granted, this is assuming he's not messing with us again, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt here. Seems he's realized just how dire things have grown. Nice to see he gives a damn about his own flight finally. Also clear that he and Ebyssian have had contact in a positive manner... so far. I do wonder though if his aid here may have the intent of being able to get Ebyssian to divulge information about the Dragon Isles in return (provided he knows enough). I suppose we'll find out the sincerity of his actions soon enough.
Im confused as to how ebornhorn can be corrupted by N'zoth since he was supposedly cleansed by the hammer of kazgaroth, unless that just gave him a resistance to the whispers
This sounds fun! I really don't want to lose Ebonhorn! It's nice that a dragon chose a tauren form instead of an elf... ;)
My hope was that the Vault of Archavon would hold the answers I seek. Unfortunately, though the Vault contained much material for me to study, the giants who make it their home were... less than cordial to me upon my arrival. I cannot say I blame them, given their previous encounters with "visitors" from the Alliance and the Horde.yep
It is kind of curious that none of the characters who received new models appeared in the questline. Especially since as far as we know from the datamining, this is the only major story questline in the current build in any form.Zekhan and Valeera I could conceivably see getting new models even if we weren't going to see them again until 8.3 since both characters have already played notable roles. And I suppose an image of Wrathion might pop up in the final version of the questline at some point. But Calia? There is no reason for her to get a LIghtforged model until she actually appears in game, and she doesn't appear in the questline.Not sure what to make of this, it might just be a matter of Blizzard getting a bit cleverer when it comes to hiding things they don't want the players to know about just yet.
Poor Kalec. Wrathion gets a sexy new model, and Kalecgos is stuck looking like a Lego from 2007.
This text highlights the main issue of writing in WoW right now - many crucial elements of the world go by completely unmentioned until a quest takes place there.Legion started it all. The biggest invasion of Azeroth in years have taken place almost exclusively on Broken Isles, while little glimpses of outside world that we could get in order hall quests were all "blink and you'll miss it" and failed to leave any lasting impact. BfA is even worse with this: pretty much every time we go out somewhere, all we see is "minions of the Void™" "corrupting" something, or whatever else they can do. It's like the entire Azeroth is frozen in time, save for few select areas where main quests take place. The massive world they have built over years lies unused, and this hurts the "World" in WoW.We get told that "The Void can reach Ebonhorn even ", which supposedly should tell us how dangerous and strong it has become after N'zoth escaped, but this is the only display we will ever see of it. We won't be shown entire cities falling prey to madness, or massive swaths of land drowned in Void™, unless this doesn't go along the narrow path that Blizzard cuts with their narrative. We go to Karazhan, yet we don't meet Khadgar. He should be clearly aware of everything that is happening around the tower, minions of the "Void™" included. We won't see him, because he is not central to this part of the story. In Legion, Kirin Tor had presense around Karazhan to keep demons at bay, but in Battle of Azeroth they did what? Exactly nothing, neither repercussions against Sylvanas' painfully obviouly villanous acts nor against ever-growing presense of other notable villains. The faction that so far had presented themselves as an extremely powerful force in ALL expansions since their introduction in WotLK is completely latent in this expansion when their intervention is probably the most needed. Oh well, can't have actually reasonable people interfering with our morally grey characters.I vowed not to touch upon Warcraft lore again, because in it's current state it is a horrible mess that disgraces the name of Warcraft, and makes WoD with it's ever-loathed time-travel plot look like Shakespeare. Yet here I am writing several thousand symbols about it, because the game has grown so much on me, it's hard to let go. I want to believe that WoW ended with Garrosh' death, but I keep coming back in hopes that something would maybe improve, but every time they I read new quest text, I see that writing in WoW remains the same: all gaudy, but empty inside.
In my opinion based on what we have seen so far this expansion and the alleged spoilers of new expansion - I think it's safe to assume something similar to MoP will happen - I mean, the cinematic after we save Baine - Siege of Thunder Bluff inc? In all seriousness though, as much as I was hoping N'Zoth would be the end boss after all the setup, I start to believe the next expansion, or at least its majority, would be focused on him and Ny'alotha. The last tier may be indeed another siege of Horde capital (not really likely, and I think another A v H warfront would make no sense - come on, we have kinda agreed that our goal is to end the war and Sylvanas, so why start another conflict?), or something completely unexpected (like, to me - Argus as the end boss was a surprise). But the most probable options are, to me, some kind of Ny'alotha treshold, the end boss being one of N'zoth's most trusted lieutenants, or maybe even someone we've already heard of. Also it is possible that Azshara will return in some form - maybe even more twisted one, deprieved of any grace she used to have? Not likely in next tier though, but who knows. Buuut deep down inside I am hoping that this expansion ends with Sylvanas beaten down (if not dead for good) and forced to retreat, which could connect nicely to next expansion being focused on the Shadowlands. So maybe after all that Thunder Bluff siege isn't that stupid.
Does this will have any effect with the eye of nzoth we players have stuck on our heads?
