I agree with you 100% re: Azeroth's Best Elf, Maiev Shadowsong. I bought WoW because I'd just played through The Frozen Throne and wanted to find out what happened to Maiev. I hope against hope for the day that she will return to us ... but I dread that it'll be as a raid boss."Lollore she went crazy, herp derp", says Blizzard. "The guilty shall suffer!", say I. In Shadowsong's name!

Wasn't she always a bit crazy, in a 'so obsessed, it's really not healthy anymore' kind of way? I'm not saying I want her to become a raid boss (I do like her), but she's definitely not on a journey to Crazyville, she's been living on the outskirts of town for a while now. :P

Well, considering Maiev Shadowsong was explicitly given the job of jailing one of the most dangerous criminals in night elven history, did her job faithfully for 10,000 years, and then Tyrande randomly came through, slaughtered all of Maiev's comrades, and freed Illidan ... I think Maiev's rage is justified, not crazy. Tyrande was the crazy one.

I still think it's weird that the people that imprisoned him decided to kill the guards instead of saying it's an emergency and we need his help. If they say no THEN you kill them all. I know it's not as exciting as a priestess slaughtering everyone to free her brother-in-law but still...

Eh I think that was just an unfortunate side-effect of prioritizing gameplay over everything else. If you go back and play the WC3 mission for that, they basically needed SOMETHING for her to do after deciding to split from Malfurion, and fighting guards was the only sensible thing they could have her do. Plus if Maeiev had just stepped aside and allowed it, it would have undermined her character quite a bit.
