this is not really a question, but i loved how they are able to still keep BC lore semi-relevant, it seemed that BC was firmly rooted in outlands, but at the end of a long questline to save a dying paladin, we see a certain very powerful person come with his allies to assist tirion in saving a paladin.

Yah its nice how things are moving along. In fact the whole development of the Scourge weapon from their attacks on the Druids in Ashenvale right up Wrathgate is awesome from an Alliance perspective (and I imagine even more so from a Scorge perspective). In fact, the whole scourge betrayal of the Horde is something I am hoping to see develop (I've still got more questing to do so who knows). However, I fear rather than move the story along and rip up the exisitng factions and create all new alliances, Blizzard will prefer to compromise storyline in favour of not up-setting the players and guild structures.Maybe not tho. Perhaps Blizz have some cunning applications ahead and we will see opportunities for cross factions raiding. Maybe the Phasing technology could give us something like a Caverns of Alternate Reality in which different factions exist. Imagine, BEs, NEs and Trolls accepting their common ancestry and banding together or Orc and Draenie putting aside their differences and accepting the genocide in Outland was manipulated by Sargerus. I'm sure their are issues with world economies, trading etc that will make this impossible but heck it would be so cool to group up with certain races, classes of the opposite faction for certain controlled events.Jae

@jaenicoll:1) You mean Forsaken. Not Scourge. They are not the same thing.2) The Forsaken did not betray the Horde. A radical faction *did*, but the vast, vast majority are still loyal, including Sylvanas herself.3) That king you've got up in Stormwind... is a straight up douche bag :P

Thanks Ktok, I did mean the Forsaken and not the scourge in the first paragraph. Both factions have their heroes, anti-heroes and douche bags. So far Varian has acted a little hot headed and looks a complete doofus but I am hoping that Blizzard will make both Garrosh and Varian have more complicated purposes than simply being antagonists to Jaina and Thrall's truce. Anyhoo, my point behind the post was to stir up some interest in using the phasing technology to push the possibilities of how horde and alliance characters might be able to group up for instances and raids. I seriously doubt it will ever affect the status quo of the exisiting factions BUT new temporary truces might be possible with certain caveats and in certain situations (like a CoT instance). Sure, trading would probably need to be disabled (to avoid world economies being altered) and inter faction communication may represent a challenge to implement ingame but those issues can be overcome.Unlikely to ever happen but the phasing technology could be implemented to create all sorts of interesting game altering situations.Jae

I really liked that whole quest chain. Without giving anything away, it's one of those "move heaven and earth to save a life"-type stories, and sends the player to an oft-mentioned place that has never been explored yet in WoW that I know of. (More of that, please!)And the appearance that you refer to is so cool-looking, I actually remembered to mash the screenshot button for once.
