In my personal opinion, the Ebon Blade, lore-wise, is pretty much everything the Forsaken should have been.Imagine if the Forsaken had been written as dark, brutal, but ultimately regretful of what they had done. Their primary goal is vengeance, but in a way that their vengeance is the key to their salvation. They fight smart, use incredibly underhanded tactics, but at the same time do not hesitate to ride to the rescue of their allies.Suppose that instead of mustache-twirling "let's wipe out all life" villainy from level 1, the Forsaken plague quests are written as failed attempts to find a cure for undeath. Then comes Putress's reveal, that the "cure" you were helping him test was actually a plague to wipe out all life. Then his actions would feel more like a true double-cross instead of making the Horde leadership either look like clueless patsies or complicit in his betrayal.Instead we have a faction that is a wolf that isn't even bothering with the sheep's clothing. It walks up to the sheep and says "I'm a wolf", yet the sheep are somehow surprised when it starts trying to eat them.
