Between Calia and Derek, we're either looking at a Forsaken Redemption Arc post-Sylvanas, or an Alliance Undead Allied Race.
I think it is most likely a redemption arc for the Forsaken, rather than an Allied race.
Wouldn't surprise me if Blizzard put Calia and Derek together, even romantically - that way they get to give their fans the Proudmoore/Menethil ship they've always wanted.
I hope Delaryn and other Night Elves that have joined the Horde, will follow Zellings example.
So far i am really unimpressed about the storyline, how is this suppose to be different arc than garrosh, being overthrown at the end.
I'm surprised Saurfang is sitting this patch out. Was really hoping we'd see his journey continue. He's likely on his way to Outland to contact Thrall. It would make the most sense, because he needs his help, especially with Baine's incarceration.So much for Zelling - this will likely turn Voss once again against the Banshee Queen. I think she truly cared for his family and help him cope with becoming undead.
btw why did Sylvanas decided to arrest Baine on the eyes of Alliance spy, on the Alliance territories?To make Alliance think that they can trust Baine. Probably Derek is already mind controlled.
OH THANK THE LIGHT. My heart couldn't take the idea of Derek being forced to murder his own family.Also nice to see Baine taking action!
Sylvanas burned an entire land with many innocent lives in it. Baine and all of the Horde fully supported her after that.Sylvanas just raised a single dead human suddenly all of the horde reacted that she is evil.RemovedAlso this: "Baine showed compassion and honor by returning Derek to us. I fear that choice may cost him his life."What garbage thought is that? Everyone in the horde committed the crime when they followed Sylvanas' path of genocide. No matter how blizzard tries to put all the blame on her alone and show the rest of the horde innocent, it is pure bs.RemovedOn the other hand, this makes perfect sense if you assume that night elves are a garbage race and deserved to be burned alive.Removed
Let's hope this is a hint for another War Campaign chapter in 8.1.5 - something on both sides, not just horde-only Saurfang quests.
"Will you come with me, Jaina? I... I don't know if I can do this alone""Of course, Derek. No matter the storm, we will face it... as family."...Uh-oh... I have a bad feeling about this.And I'm sad about Baine. Hope he'll be ok. Nice to see we have diferent options in quest. (even with the same end)Btw, Derek's questline starts only with next raid?In my horde char, Derek still dead on my ship's floor. XD
Hey, Baine is actually doing something. Takes some guts to go against Sylvanas to send Derek back to his family sans brainwashing. Poor Zelling is probably soon to be dead. And this is certainly going to be hard on Jaina. The brother who was dead is now undead. I bet this is how they're going to bring in Calia, because they'll refer him to her to try and help him cope.
I still believe that calia will bring an allied race to the alliance. I’m so excited.
That sounds like a new Allied race for the Alliance.
Like for all the reasons Baine could've chosen to defy Sylvanas, he did it for a dead human relative of the leader of his enemy faction? Baine's either a dumbass or the writers are just hamfisting this inner horde conflict so hard it just seems ridiculous at this point. Can this all just be a old god illusion already, and tentacles appear and attack us, please N'zoth, save us!
OH look! More things about how evil and dumb Sylvanas are!.......Kerrigan 2.0 incoming. Also this whole deal trying to make Jaina sweet is disgusting.
Well, so much for Baine being the one to save the honor of the Horde. First time he tries, he's taken down. I wonder where that leaves us.Interesting stuff though.As for the Holy Undead, I really hope that'll be a Horde allied race, not Alliance.
If Sylvanas is letting Baine give Derek to the Alliance, I reckon it’s because the brainwashing is done. Baine’s just delivering him to his target and exposing his treachery in the same stroke. A win-win for the Warchief.
