Why are they pushing so many cool quests and stories to the books when they could be doing an awesome phased event for them? Like for instance the fight to take back Thunder Bluff would have been an awesome thing to end the Tauren 1-10 zone. Imagine having almost some of those quests in 1 through 10 be about getting people enthused about taking it back, getting the supplies and arranging logistics, and then finally having an epic battle a la Battle for Undercity where a Tauren could show how awesome they truly are by helping Baine take back TB and avenging Cairne. I mean that would be the epicness of epicness. I know some people would complain about not being able to see it, but the lvl 1-10 experience only takes a couple of hours. With a couple of hours of work, you too could help Baine take back TB.This could apply to the Emerald Dream thing too. As much as I hate Varian b/c of the horribly written comic books and his in-game return having no real explanation, the Emerald Dream fight would have been an awesome way to get his character fleshed out better IN THE GAME as opposed to in a book from an author that is equally hated as well as loved so only half of the people read it.I guess my main thing is to have big lore moments in the game for those of us who like that type of stuff rather than just in literature (and I really hate calling the comic book literature).

Well, they explain and did a much better job integrating the out-of-game media for Blane then they did for Varian. Let's consider it a good thing Blizz is learning.Still, NPCs that explain the whole story in the game might be nice.
