More and more, I'm getting the feeling that we're going to see the end of the great Dragon Aspects and their flights protecting the world. We have to kill Malygos, Nozdormu may have turned against "us", Ysera may have been corrupted by the Nightmare, and of course Neltharion became the evil Deathwing long ago. The only dragonflight that seems untouched is the red dragonflight, but their end could come someday too.It'll be interesting to see what happens to Azeroth without its protectors keeping order (not that they've done very well in the past).

As much as I cringe at the thought of that, It makes sense. At the end of "Reign of Chaos," Medivh says that his mission was to show the world that they no longer needed guardians, that they can and must defend themselves. The Dragonflights are the eminent guardians of Azeroth, and are a crutch because of it. Their death would be the completion of what began during the Third War.

Interesting point. It would be cool if at the end of WoW's current storylines, all guardian types did relinquish their power to the younger races, Babylon 5 style.

The Guardians Medivh refers to are an order of magi called "Guardians of Tirisfal", where one at a time is imbued with astronomical power, well above and beyond the capacity of any other mortal. Medivh was one such Guardian, and effectively sat out the fight to prove that mortals can take care of themselves. This is why his staff, Ateish, is called Greatstaff of the Guardian.

The Aspects, as guardians have been a failure from the very beginningNeltharion, the Earth-Warder, AKA Deathwing - went evil when the legion tried to invade azeroth, wekaened and murdered a crapload of other dragons and made lots of other bad crap since.Ysera the Dreamer - her dream is messed up by some nightmare she was fighting since forever. The only good thing her flight had done in the material world is sinking some troll temple, and even that was a failure (see Eranikus)Malygos the Spell-Weaver - Got his ass kicked by Deathwing and was comatose ever since. Rescently woke up and decided to murder all mortal races and the other flights, while rerouting all the magic in the world to his temple.Nozdormu the Timeless One - M.I.A, Suspected of leading a rogue group of dragons trying to the destroy the timeline of the world as we know it.Alexstrasza the Life-Binder - The only aspect that isn't a total failure, but still managed to get captured by some looser orcs in the second war, and got used (along with her children) against the other races.I think at some point in time the Titans will come back, see the how their creation got screwed up, the degrees of mess created by the mortals, and the epic failure that their guardians tbecame - and decide to purge this useless world and do it right this time.
