I think all the "high fantasy" purists are clinging to the past, in more ways than one.Netherstorm is the most awesome atmospheric zone, IMO. People need to stop and remember that all the new "technology" in TBC is in fact magic based, and what's more, it MAKES SENSE for civilizations to advance beyond simple talismans into true magical technology, such as the Legion, The Ethereals, and the Draenei and Blood Elves possess.Nothing could be LESS out of place than the Eco-Dome's in netherstorm, or the Draenei crashing on azeroth in the paladin version of a necropolis. After all, IN WARCRAFT ONE, the orcs came to azeroth through a freakin' STARGATE.You can go back all the way to Zin-Azshari before the sundering when the night elves lived in a magically-technilogical civilzation as advanced as anything we've seen lately.If your definition of high fantasy is "primitive" warcraft, NEVER WAS high fantasy. Quit clinging to the past, both in-world, and out.
