"In Cataclysm, the Blue Dragonflight finds itself hunted once more by Deathwing and his kin. But why, exactly? Malygos is dead, and the blue flight is in tatters, so there should be little need to wipe the remainder of the flight out -- the Blue Dragonflight hardly poses a threat..."So, in other words, if you want to actually wipe them out, no better time has ever existed to do so. Wait until they rebuild and regain their strength, and it may become an impossible task, and one you'll live to regret not accomplishing back when it would have been easier.

"Hardly poses a threat" -- All you need to know in four words.With Malygos dead, there's no real reason to WANT to wipe out the Blue Dragonflight. Especially if Kalecgos is going to be rising to the position of Aspect.

@ Kuro -Clearly you've never read the Evil Overlord List. *grin* If you had, you'd know that you always destroy your foes utterly, even if they don't appear to be a threat, because if you don't, they'll come back to bite you on the ass. To quote:46.If an advisor says to me "My liege, he is but one man. What can one man possibly do?", I will reply "This." and kill the advisor.^_^

Yeah, Deathwing might be a crazed dragon, but I don't think he's stupid. The less dragons to fight him, the better. The red and green dragons both have their aspects, and the bronze have the majority of their drakes left (I don't know if we ever found out where thier aspect was)Instead of letting the blues (Who obviously have a bone to pick with him) live without an aspect, it would make more sense to try to wipe them out completely, to prevent them from assisting the others. Sure, without malygos they aren't as strong as the red dragonflight, but even a weakened group of drakes are capable allies. Not to mention if somehow Kalecgos manages to reach aspect status by some means, and he's anywhere near as strong as Malygos was, or at least smart enough and influential enough to rally the blue dragons that are left, then deathwing is going to run into some problems.That being said, I'm wondering if we might see a reemergence of the Netherwing in this expansion. I'd love to see one of the aspects try to rally the nether drakes to fight against deathwing, it's unlikely as it doesn't make much sense, but it seems like it'd be a good time to introduce them to azeroth.

@JasonBig issue with fighting the bronze is- they KNEW you were coming, in fact every single possibility has been seen for so long that the sheer number of possibilities has probably driven many of the bronze to partial madness (impersonating gnomes of another gender anyone). I wouldn't be surprised if Nozdormu simply has most eventualities planned out in some way and is comfortably napping somewhere in the mists of time. Heck as we saw in day of the dragon- if you confront a bronze on his own grounds you may end up walking away unaware and puzzled at what you have been doing the past few days. "OMG!!! I killed a bronze" Chromie "nah, that was just a few bronze allowing you to see a window into a possibility we saw and prepared for 2-3 epochs ago"

@JasonI love how you used "was" for the fact that Nozdormu never seems to be around. :)You know... 'Cause he's the Aspect of... Time......Yeah~~~~~Anyways, I'm kinda thinking that the Blue flight is still the biggest threat to Deathwing's plans, because while he's an Aspect of an element that has no real defence against magic. I mean, magic-users can manipulate a wider variety of things as well, and just manipulating earth is pretty limited in comparison (yeah, yeah, "earth is what the planet is made of", which is why I said "in comparison", doi). It's really the only direct threat to Deathwing's power compared to the other Aspects' powers over Time, Life, and Nature/the Emerald Dream. At least, I'd hope the Bronze flight would pitch in a bit like they did in Silithus all those centuries ago.I'd also really like to see the Netherwings more involved - keeping the whole of Outland still relevant instead of an odd time-warp-y thing...Hey, maybe that's why players got to Outland and Northrend so long after the events have come and gone... Nozdormu, you crafty Aspect!
