@uncaringbearThere's accepting lesser quality entries to an established lore within reason, and then there's blindly gobbling up whatever crap is shoveled in our face. The former is fine--I think we've all come to accept the sudden, seemingly arbitrary shoehorning of Varian and Garrosh into the forefront of the lore for the sake of justifying more in-game PvP--but the latter is Knaak. He proved that when he screwed over the War of the Ancients and Illidan Stormrage in order to toss in his all-knowing, all-powerful, hot elf banging borderline self-insert (with a vaguely Japanese name for extra dork "cool points," no less!).Is Warcraft lore some high art that shouldn't be stained with anything short of epic, mature high fantasy? No. In fact, the comparison to potato chips is quite apt; it's literary junk food. However, just because Warcraft lore is junk food doesn't mean there are worse things than junk food, and I don't know about you but I don't like my potato chips dipped in shit.I prefer ranch.
