I had a brief "John Locke becomes Jacob's brother after he died in Lost" moment when you compared the "I see only darkness" / "I saw only darkness" phrases when compared to Arthas and Sylvanas.Then I thought...well the val'kyr were made by Arthas for a lot of reasons and it makes you wonder why they would so willfully join Sylvanas...but the thought of the val'kyr being Arthas' essence and having him take over her body made me feel uncomfortable.I would doubt that would be the route they'd want to go, there's way too much life (pardon the pun) to Sylvanas' character to just dismiss her like that... even though it would be a brilliant way to sneak such a story in. Unless they ran out of ideas, which I don't think would be the case any time soon.Though I agree that it is strange that the val'kyr accompanying Sylvanas had to die to ressurect her. Surely something is going on with that, but then again they've done over-the-top things before. Maybe because it would just look bad in game to have them ressurect her and be on their way as if it were though she would be immortal in a sense, able to ressurect at any time at no cost would make many people facepalm.A lot of people now are already facepalming at the fact that she was killed so easily and ressurected so easily, but that's not for us to decide since we aren't the writers and have to wait to see exactly why these things are happening.Whatever way it goes I will be patiently waiting. Great job with the Know Your Lore articles!
