I had such high hopes after I read the article with the moon power up and Tyrande.... and Malfurions form...Nope, all in vain.
People keep saying "BUT SHE KILLED A VAL'KYR IT'S NOT A TOTAL LOSS", but the thing is, nobody cares about the Val'kyr.It might feel like a victory if Sylvanas had come even marginally close to dying throughout this whole war, but she hasn't. What reasons do we have to believe that she's even going to need a resurrection? None of the other racial leaders have.There's no emotional satisfaction to be gained from killing a character whose name we didn't even know until this very second, whose impact has been all but invisible. ESPECIALLY not when Nathanos leaves the encounter with all of his goals accomplished and the Val'kyr lived out its purpose.If Tyrande killed Nathanos and then the Val'kyr sacrificed herself to res him, that might have been different. As is, Tyrande killed something we spent the entirety of Wrath curbstomping. Big deal.
Something that I don't think has been raised during BFA is if Sylvanas's bargain she made with Helya during the quest A Desperate Bargain is still relevant, as Sylvanas failed to subjugate Eyir. I for one had forgot about it since Legion ended with Helya defeated and no additional mention of the bargain or threat against Sylvanas, but the quest Ring Of The Reefs hints that Helya is not dead and theoretically able to punish those who failed her. The quote below is the quest completion text for the quest Ring Of The Reefs taken from Wowpedia.
Can N'zoth just blow up the planet already. Blizzard can't write for @#$%.
Meh. And I was actually pretty hyped for this. lolSo, Tyrande is EMPOWERED by Elune now, there's a HUGE dark moon in the sky and she can't even solo Nathanos? She can't do this even with the help of her boyfriend? MehThis would have been great if she killed Nathanos after that mind-control part and the val'kyr sacrificed herself to bring him back instead of just being slain. And no need for Malfurion to be present on this one by the way. I mean, he should be still healing from Saurfang's blow. Tyrande DESPERATELY need her time on the spotlight and it should be only about her this time. Malfurion got plenty of development during the druid order hall campaing and Emerald Nightmare plot.At least I know I'll enjoy the Alliance side of this questline since it will show the actual development of Tyrande into the Night Warrior and it will even feature Shandris and Maiev going after her. Great women together doing great things. Btw it would have been WAAAAAAAAAAY cooler if it was Shandris and Maiev helping her instead of Malf here (if they really have this need to make someone present to help her).
I do wonder if the act of raising bodies of fallen Night Elves is what spurs Saurfang to escape his prison and perhaps right the wrongs of the Warchief's actions, actions of which we're are lead to believe he feels immense guilt. Assuming Darkshore happens first, of course, then surely word would filter through the system to his ears.Nothing I can add to the incoming Darkshore scenario that hasn't already been said. It is indeed quite dumb. Win or lose do the Alliance ever end a fight that isn't on the Horde's terms?
Welcome to the Horde undead night elves :D
I love the "It's only PTR blablablaa".Like Wow is a 2018 released game and like 99% of PTR is going to be on live in less 2 months just as usual.And don't tell us to "wait and see" ever again : Darkshore and the burning of Teldrassil was that and holy mother of god, that was the #$%^show we all forsee.
WoW's storyline has been catering to us among the Alliance and Horde who just want to kill something and ask "How much do I get paid?" I like it.
The Nightman Night Warrior Cometh
I must confess, as much as I love Wow I absolutely detest the story lines in this expansion. We aren't even out of 8.0 and I'm already looking out for the next expansion. This feels like a flop expansion just like WoD. The only difference is that there was some novelty to Draenor when it came out.
