Why the hell would the Priestess stay behind?It's a building. Night Elves aren't supposed to worship Elune like some christian "church is a holy building" crap.
So Sylvanas is basically Garrosh 2.0 and Saurfang will be Vol'jin 2.0. Once again the Horde is plagued by tension and mistrust. Basically Mists all over again. I'm still hoping this is all a swerve by Blizzard. Like someone said Christie Golden did say there's misinformation in the dialogue texts. Anyway I'll wait to see how it all plays out. Unlike some people I won't rage and rush to judgment until i see the story in full.
Can someone use a dispell on that Alliance Protective bubble ? Come on.You're trying to make horde so evil all the time and all the time we're losing important characters (Cairne, Vol'jin, Garrosh etc.). Why can't WE just kill some of the alliance characters? Get rid of that THING with honor, this is the war, we're here to kill, not to give flowers. In the end Horde will lose all characters and Alliance maybe one npc in Stormwind.
For the Horde indeed!
I am starting to think that Burning of Teldrassil will actually be an Alliance deed. Just like Sylvanas is using blight to make Lordearon an useless piece of land, Alliance might take the same action and since Horde wants the World Tree for themselves, they will just burn it down. Or it will be some unwanted or accidental thing because why to deliberately burn down something you want to get?
The only people I see complain about Sylvanas are alliance players , which(to be frank) they complain even if you breath as a horde player , and alliance players bored of the races they have and switched to horde(aka there is no "honor").Wake up call , there is nothing honorable about war stop acting like it is.History is written by the victor not by the defeated even thou' the survivors described the best what attrocities the "honorable" victor did that no one listen to since the victor written the history making look like the defeated are the bad guys. This is a MMORPG and neither of the sides , sadly , will be wiped out or even controll more land than the other because of fanboism.If they had a free hand to go at it , I am sure the story would be far more interesting.That being said , knowing Christie Golden she will either kill Sylvanas in a manner of turning her into a martyr or make her a puppet of N'zoth after her will is broken.I will be happy if this ends up as Sylvanas and the Alliance plans aka Alliance controlls most of EK and the Horde Kalimdor.In order to take Blood Elves home Alliance must do what you so much hate about doing which is taking lands that are not theirs nor Hordes land.Both plaguelands are under Argent dawn faction from which they need permision to pass and since AD is a peace faction made out of all races wont happen.Anyway , I dont think that is the reason , I think the reason is because they would need to change the Blood Elf and Draenei story so that it would fit in which case there is no time to do that.There is a reason they never changed both races starting zones and the reason is that is how they join their factions.Atleast thats how for Blood Elves go , you cleanse the land of the remaining scourge , you drive off the trolls to their Amani temple , you kill the one that is the reason why Arthas could get in to begin with and then bring his head to Sylvanas - the one that vouched for the Belves - and she sends you to the Warchief as a proof that you are able to deal with your own %^&* and are capable to help the Horde.In order for Azuremist Isles,Bloodmist Isles and Quel'thalas (in-game speaking) to become a target for this war is to re-write their stories.For the Forsaken it is easy because the zone is just a place where ,after risen , take vengeance on the Scarlet Crusade and kill whoever opposes Sylvanas and that is easy to replace or just discard.The only part that is esential is the 1-5 starting zone where you are risen - that's all.You are already part of the Horde so it is a zone easy to discard off the Horde controll.For the Night Elves is the same , you just mend wounds , controll some wild life population and fend off some remaining corruption which again is easy to discard since if they are no longer there what purpose would that zone serve? I mean , if you think about it in Teldrassil all you do is repeat the same thing you do in 1-5 one . You controll population of the wild life , mend some wounds.You do nothing crucial to your races' story because there is no story behind it to join the Alliance , you are already part of the Alliance which offers alot of flexibility storywise.Whereas on both Draenei and Blood Elves cases all zones matter and a story would be needed to be re-written and they have no time for that.Maybe in the future , who knows?P.S: I love some characters , be it Horde or Alliance.For Instance , I like Malfurion , I hate Tyrande , I loved Varian , I like Saurfang and I am indifferent to Sylvanas and I never liked Alleria or Veressa and after her last escapade in Silvermoon I hate her for being so ignorant.Which even if you are an Alliance player you must admit she was pretty ignorant saying that Belves are traitors given the fact that she knows nothing Belves have been through.
SAURFANG FOR WARCHIEF!
