but what about the infinite dragonflight?how can they be formed if its leader no longer has the timelord power of living for crap-all ever? pocket dimensions that rotate at a slowerrate than this one so time is slower?that kickin anti-aging cream that created clayface in Batman TAS?plot convenience?

They aren't. The Infinite Dragonflight never occurs, because you defeat Deathwing. All Infinites - and Murozond - are from a "dead" timeline that never occurred.

Nozdormu refers to it as a loop, so it has to continue (Timey-wimey asspulls aside). And let's face it--just because we killed Murozond in the Endtime instance, that doesn't mean that was when his story *begins*.Here, let me explain.WORLD CHRONOLOGY: PAST > PRESENT > FUTUREOUR CHRONOLOGY: PAST > FUTURE (Endtime) > PAST (WoE) > PRESENT (Dragon Soul)MUROZOND CHRONOLOGY: ??? >? FUTURE (Endtime)Murozond could have performed any number of actions, been to any number of times and places, created any number of Infinites and sent *them* to any number of times and places, in the space in his chronology defined by "???".

so, what you're saying is basically "babblebabbledoctorwhobabblestartrekbabbledylithiumcrystalsbabbletimecircutsbabblewe'llfixitinpostbabblebabble"XP

I have the perfect explanation:People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

Maaaan the sand flowing out of Noz's broken pauldron was beautiful. Very low-key ending, little underwhelming, but a solid push into the next era. I think it served Cataclysm nicely; important but underwhelming expac, and the end cinematic parallels that.It's no Lich King but it was pretty.

As far as I know, Nozdormu (and Murazond) are so in-tune with time travel that they exist outside of the timeline, as in they exist in the timeline at only one place simultaneously. Such that it wouldn't be possible for Nozdormu to travel back an hour and arm-wrestle himself. So killing Murazond prevents him from stepping into the timeline at any point in the future.Now, in a situation like that I'm not sure how both Nozdormu and Murazond can exist. But otherwise, why WOULDN'T he double up? Adventurers got you down? Make them fight Present Murazond, and Murazond from an hour from now, and Murazond from tuesday, etc etc, all at once.

I understand the Doctor Who fans love that quote, but seriously, we have no idea if that's how Time works in WoW, nor should we assume so since it's got a guardian of time that seems to think we have a linear path that can be threatened by alternate path.WoW has a Method To Time, whether it's ever fully explained or not, it's not some wibbly wobbly anything. If they want to come out and say Time is that way, fine, but otherwise they should remain internally consistent on some level.

Vocenoctum, that quote makes fun of the fact that the Doctor Who series never has one solid way of explaining time or time travel. One episode it might be one-way only, the next it can pull a "Back to the Future" on you by creating diverging paths, they constantly change how time and time travel works or doesn't work in order to fit the story.

Except WoW is as inconsistent with time travel as Doctor Who is.We have Ripple Effect Proof Memory from overwriting timelines OR alternate timelines (The Hakkar incident from War of the Ancients), alternate timelines and offshoots (Twilight of the Aspects, Endtime), rewriting our timeline (Darrowshire, the North Wind) and predestination (Mysteries of the Infinite and Redux).

I think we learned from Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects, that timelines can get messed up pretty bad, but there is one true timeline that is the correct one.Actually, I'm not sure what my point is.. But I sure felt sad, when I saw that cinematic...
