I really wish that Blizz would follow thru on some of these quests and lore characters. Turalyon and Garona just to name 2, I'm sure that there are a few dozen other lore heavy toons that just get brushed over or forgotten.

Garonas fate has been the focus of the second arc of the WARCRAFT comic.

Thats great, now if only they sold that comic near me.I want the lore characters explored in game, where the PLAYERS can enjoy the story, not in some book that I can buy if I'm lucky enough to be near a store that carries said comic. I hated sunwell b/c all this crap is happening and no one in game knows why really, just that it all refers to something that happened out of game.

Yeah, I really dislike the comics/mangas mainly because a lot of player won't actually read (or even know about) them and therefore be left out of a lot of the story.

I was thinking about this issue. I like the books, comics, and manga for telling back story behind important lore figures, but as to how they pertain to the current game world, I really wish there was more in game. Sartharion is a great example, if you read Night of the Dragon, you know why we should go into the Obsidian Sanctum and try to put a stop to what's going on there. Unfortunately, there's not mention in the game. We don't need some long drawn out attunement (not to say that that wouldn't be fun), but atleast a quest to say, "Hey, there's something bad going on, here's why it's bad, and we could really use somebody to do something about it." Otherwise, in game, we're just going there cause our friends said we could kill dragons there and get some sweet shinies while we're at it.

Agreed, Expanded universe media is for Flavour, side stories and perhaps expanding on minor mysteries/myths and legends of main story (J. R. R. Tolkien's work comes to mind as a good example of how to do expanded stuff - no-one actually needs to read the Silmarillion or Tales of Tom Bombadil to understand what's happening in the main story, but they provide some cool extras for those who bother.) Having some of the major players in the lore, and their impacts on the main product only in the extra novels is just plain bad storytelling.

I would assume they don't want to use up all their heavy hitters in one expansion.
