Sad thing is, while he's no better than Tyrande, he is right about her when he says she has no idea how to lead her people. Sure she can shoot a bow and look pretty doing it, but all she does now is hide away in her temple letting other people run the Alliance. The only reason she's so well liked for the Alliance during the Valentine's event is that Darn. is the last place people go to to turn in their gift . People save it for last.I don't prefer her or Staghelm or even Malfurion because I'm always gonna side with Illidan - too bad the devs/programmers (whoever the hell was stupid enough to make him a boss we had to kill in BC) gave him a bum rap. There was so much potential to have Illidan be a turning force for us and we don't see much of him until the end of a very long rep grind for netherdrakes or until we go to the BT. Such a waste of such a great character.Would have been great if we could have recruited him and have him fight Arthas one more time... now that would have been great to see in WoW.

God yeah.Picture the scene: Ice Crown Citadel.Darrion Mograine is down, Tirion is bloodied and protecting him.The players are battered and bruised and Arthas is mocking them all."Your pathetic light is no match for my bad ass pointy armor and blue sword thingy. Is this all you got?!"POW!Enter Illidan Stormrage, decending from above with his green Klingon bat'leths. That's what I want to see! To proper bad-asses fighting to the death and destroying the whole fortress while doing it.

I....agree.....COMPLETELY!Deadly you've put to words whats been on my mind for a very very long time.Thank you.

I also agree, we couldn't have simply defeated him? No. Blizz takes one of their more interesting characters, makes him 'go mad' and has us kill him off... yawn.IMO Illidan = Deathwing > Lich King by FAR.

Team Illidan FTW! God what a waste of an awesome character. :( (ditto Kael)As far as Tyrande, I seriously can't see her sitting around doing nothing this whole time, which has been my biggest beef with the Alliance all through WoW. People like to complain that there's too many Nelves, etc but the fact is their story has just been botched and ignored in WoW almost from day one. It honestly feels like no one knows wtf to do with Tyrande since Furion's been in the nightmare, so they've just left her alone. She's a dynamic, interesting character and has been totally wasted in WoW. I also would have liked to see more on how such a xenophobic, ancient society dealt with all the sweeping changes that took place (losing immortality, men allowed in the priesthood, women learning druidism, etc). There was so much fodder for interesting stuff that's been ignored.I'm really hoping Cata will give them a place in the spotlight, like BC and the blood elves (though hopefully with a lot better results than the OOC, Sue-tastic garbage we were treated to with that abomination of a manga). The return of the Highborne, losing Ashenvale, and the rest should finally bring Tyrande out.

Team Illidan! Both he and Kayle'Thas did not deserve to become loot pinatas for the players...they were to important and interesting to just have....died the way they did.So...who do we get for the final fight against the litch king? His two jilted angry chicks, some guy with a huge chin and the brain span of a small squirrel, and finally an orc prone to temper tantrums who likes to play warlord.Darrion and Tirion are awesome...but I fear they will be mostly overshadowed by those...folks...ugh......lame. >_
