When can we off him as a raid boss? Replace him with Sassy Hardwrench.Also, did anyone note the new quest dialogue for going to Silithis? I play a goblin and it said "Gallywix is less then pleased that we are assigning you to it." Is it the same with any other race that takes up the quest, since I would think he would be pleased if it was a great war hero overseeing operations... But less so if it was a former buisness rival who has serious beef with him. (%^&*ed with our party by sending pirates, enslaved us and kept acting like a total *!@#$%.)But if it is the same for every race, it means something is up about the whole thing and the dislike is because:A. He is doing something shady that betrays the HordeB. We are big grand heroes stuck on the 'Save the World' mentallity and not various individuals who say... want to milk this powerful resource to get super rich. Thus will meddle n his plans.I really hope it is a Goblin only thing since that small touch would really work.
That "whisper" was just Anduin gasping.
The Horde cinematics is very interesting from the dining etiquette.Sylvanas -- host, womanLor'themar Theron (on right) -- the most important guest, man, Silvermoon leader (her homeland, the closest ally of the Forsakens)Nathanos Blightcaller (on right) -- the second important guest, man (we know why ;-) ).Lady Liadrin (3rd) -- woman, the one of Silvermoon sub-leadersBwemba (4th) -- woman, the representer of Trolls -- faction of previous Horde leader (but where is Rokhan?, or is she only for man-woman alternation?)Ors (Saurfang and Eitrigg), Taurens (Baine and Hamuul), and Goblin (Gallywix) are at the end of table!Goblin position is quite natural, but orcs and taurens are founders of the Horde!Baine is even sitting back to entrance!Pandarens are not presented (not even invited?).Orcs and Taurens are nomands and they can not know about dining etiquette.But Sylvanas is from noble family, dining etiquette is in her "blood" -- so we know clearly now what she thinks (may be subconsciously).And her Silvermoon kamrads must understand her thoughts clearly too.
I think the biggest twist the story of BfA would make Anduin the one manipulated by the Old Gods rather than Sylvanas, thing that the hardcore alliance players would hate so much.Note I said manipulated because I don't see Anduin being "corrupted", but being given false information that benefits the Old God's plan. The "lies" Anduin gives us are misinformation rather than intentional lies coming from him, and the climax of the expansion would be him realizing he has been leading the alliance into the outcome of what the Old God's want. As for "the King of Diamonds has been made a pawn" I do think Magni is being also being used by the OG, but also without him really knowing. These both things may be related.As for Sylvanas, the twist is that she is indeed doing everything on her power to keep the horde strong; of course not of any sense of loyalty or altruism, but because she NEEDS the horde to be her bulwark. She can't act against the horde's interest, because she would be acting against her own. She HAS to keep the horde on her side, and the only way she truly can do that is by being a "good" warchief. That's the meaning of her warcry on the cinematic, it's all for show, cause she has to inspire them even if she doesn't really care. It's the means for her end, and her end is survival. So as long as Sylvanas doesn't have a plan B that secures her immortality, she can't turn on the horde, she needs it. And pretty much every story choice that would lead to her betraying the horde would feel like a Garrosh rehash. It was hinted on the Legion page that Sylvanas' true watershed moment would be if she cared more about her goals or the forsaken, and the biggest twist in all of this is that Sylvanas' arc was closed by doing something truly selfless to save her people, the horde, and even Azeroth herself. Her whole character is profoundly rooted by her selfishness, how everyone is just an arrow on her quiver, something she can use, a selfishness caused by her fear. So the most compelling end for her -yeah, I feel Sylvanas' is not for long- would be that BfA forces her to understand that she can't keep putting herself first, that she can't keep justifying her actions as a necessity to save herself, the forsaken or the horde.I think Sylvanas' has to die, but it will be as a truly selfless act. It would serve to galvanize that even the worst of the horde can make the ultimate sacrifice, and bring the horde closer than it has ever been.Also the idea of making Sylvanas a martyr would piss off so many alliance hardocores and I just love that, and I say this as someone that while enjoys the horde complexity far more, is and will always be an alliance stalwart because of War 2.
I really like the spot Sylvanas is in. She has the skills to be a leader but shes at her best working in the shadows.Seems like the Alliance will be attacking the Horde on a "just in case" bases.
Also, I just a side note, I do think I'll grow into it and accept the story. I have no reason not to. Just atm, feels a bit.... well, here we go again lol.
Who the hell is the other Tauren?
Love you to death Perculia, but the eagle does not pick up anything, it just flies from a chunk of it back to the scout.
