I don't want Sylvanas to be controled. I want everything she is doing to be of her own free will. I like her just the way she is. She is without a doubt, THE most interesting character in the entire game. I mean besides her, or when your doing "For the Horde/Alliance, how often do you really think about the faction leaders???NEVER!Why, because for all intents and purposes...they are pointless. They are book fodder. Did anyone care about Cairne before he was killed? No, he was just a dude holding a totem pole in TB. No interaction, nothing special, no different than a radom NPC you pass on the streets of Stormwind.But Sylvanas...everyone knows her. She is a polarizing figure. She has purpose, determination, and motivation. What those motivations are now are unknown...only making her more interesting.Making her 'being controled' would be nothing but a cop-out. Like TV series writers running out of ideas, so they throw 'time travel' into the story. We know Sylvanas is about 1 thing and 1 thing only....protecting her people. She failed at it in life, and she is determined not to in death. She will do anything.....ANYTHING...to protect her people from enemies, be they at home or abroad.So, the question is, what makes her any different from Arthas...well thats simple. She knows she's doing it. Arthas was so driven that he was blind to what was happening to him. Sylvanas has proven that if nothing else, she is calculating. And walking blindly into anything is not her way. The coup in the Undercity, of course she knew, getting shot by Godfrey, all part of the plan.The only question is....what is that plan. And thats what we'll all have to wait and see. Lets just hope it plays out, and least partially in game. I loved The Shattering, but I still would have liked to see more of those events play out in game rather than on paper.So heres to Sylvanas...the one faction leader that actually makes us care about faction leaders. Don't hate...appreciate!
