As much as I enjoy the complexities of the motivations of various characters in WoW lore, it frustrates me that in WoW itself these motivations are always swept aside in favour of: BAD GUY = KILL.Not a single raid instance has allowed for the complexities of the huge characters we are annihalating, completely nullifying any and all lore related to them.I wish it weren't so.

Such is the peril of having us play as player-created entities rather than the heroic lore figures, as we did in WC3. Our primary means of interacting with things is in combat.That said, it seems like Arthas/The Lich King is getting proper treatment, although I'm sure his fight will ultimately boil down to Arthas yelling "Frostmourne Hungers!", many Sunders/Sinister Strikes/Fireballs/etc. being thrown at him, and somebody yelling "Die, fiend!" until he complies.

yes.sometimes, I would love the "big bad guy" beaten in the raid, says :"stop! okay okay, I see your point, I ask peace. we are retreating, I pay the reparations, and here is some artefacts" "- good. now you come with me for judgment."and Behold! not another dead corpse and destruction of a good character.Maybe a "bad" guy could come back in future like a "good" guy. "do you remember me ? This time I here to help !".-It seems, in mostly all american stuff, redemption is impossible if it's not by DEATH. Whatever the crime, even not so hateful ones. You are BAD and I know one punishment : death! Yeah, I dare to imagine what would be the end of the apple war in Shattrah ^^, Oh I know : death in an epic war (but only with 25 persons).-Okay Malygos send his armies, but, did he torture people, destroy cities ? Did he ask sacrifices of young girl ?But still, it's impossible to reason him after a good fight, not to control him or whatever. He is a BIG BLUE Dragon and you have to roast him to hell, even if you have red dragons (old pals (!) ) with you to help."you are crazy to kill me" "-you force me " "-whatever.. GAH !"(I would like a big animation (quest) after a raid, where you bring back the whole boss in city, to be judged. It would be epic. not just the head.)

Don't want to spoil too hard. But Malygos does NOT leave a corpse...He can most probably be dead, but then again... "Pulling a Kael", anyone?
