Brann Bronzebeard may be the Indiana Jones of Warcraft.Only one thing bugs me though: with his appearance in "Wrath of the Lich King", he'll become a static npc, forever and always. For such an explorer, staying in one place for even a few weeks would be bothersome, but thanks to WotLK and possible quests he'll give, he'll never move again. Even if he pulls a Hemet Nesingwary and moves, staying in one spot for the duration of the expansion until Expansion 3 will still be massively out of character for him.Just one minor way that WoW kills lore, even without actually killing any characters.

This isn't necessarily true. He can still appear in instances and dungeons, trotting around Northrend. Akama has his quests in Shadowmoon Valley and him being there is technically 'static' but from a storytelling point of view, he's certainly on the move. He's with you through all of BT. He definitely isn't standing still as far as the story goes.I don't think Brann is the sort of character they would utilize for something like that, but BC shows lore characters don't need to be static.

But I'm saying he won't be exploring. He won't be randomly going MIA for days or weeks like he did in Lore. We'll never see anything like that. I think it would be fun, leaving an assistant there to give quests while Brann disappears for months, but we know Blizz would never do it.Akama's always in the Warden's Cage, all hours of the day. He's in BT when people do it too, but if someone looks at Warden's Cage while a guild is doing BT, Akama will still be there, so he never really moved. It just seems folly to have Warcraft's ultimate explorer be doomed to give quests at Thor Modan for the entire WotLK lifespan.

Why don't implement something like what they did for Griftah's? That way, Brann would never get bored of exploring nothig ^^
