It had such a large amount of options to choose from and all you get was that? I mean really, with the re-introduction of NE mages in Cataclysm and the emergence of orc mages and dwarf mages in Cataclysm there's a large gap that Mage could have filled in. Instead they made a simple story about a nobody who's probably going to be nothing and it isn't really relevant.But that's Knaak for you, messing up story one book at a time. They may be "good" to read (I know I liked War of the Ancients Trilogy) but Knaak really messes things up./headdeskThen again, at least Knaak didn't do any real lore altering things.

Blue dragons attacking Dalaran seems like a retcon to me.

Lirdan, you've never done Violet Hold have you? They do attack Dalaran. In game. It's just a very contained event. Nothing like what's shown in the picture in the article.

Violet Hold is calling, it says hello.

Yeah, but in the way they attack in the manga? From above? And then they have a showdown with the LEADER of the Kirin Tor?And we've never heard about any of this? I smell retcon.

Nah, it's not a retcon, it's what happened when you was lvl 72, trying to grind to 74 to go to dalaran.

So in which time line does this Blue Flight attack of Dalaran happen?I figure we have, what, 3 or 4 choices all thanks to Knaak. Might as well have one more, right?If, as a writer, you cannot have your characters work within the constraints of an established system you need to rethink your work. Imagine if a writer of a novel had gone in and made Ensign SuperduperImcool some incredible god of combat that always fought instead of Kirk. Now imagine that after this book the series and movies all had SuperduperImcool around and Kirk was a wuss because he didn't have to be Kirk anymore.I'm pretty sure the writer would have been lynched along with the people that let Kirk get emasculated to stroke an annoy author's ego.Knaak needs to learn to write WITHIN the lore and stop changing it to suit him just because one of his pet characters to be a special flower. There is plenty you can do within the lore to have a cool character that is established and will make the lore richer without resorting to doing a Rhonin.
