I guess I've never really put a whole lot of thought into Malfurion and his decisions but now that I do, I realize I don't like him very much. I did, however, always feel that what happened to Fandral (prior to Cataclysm and after, if you really want to get down to it) was a shame and I've always felt somewhat sympathetic to him. Sure, he always treated us like inferior wastes of his time, but would I behave differently given the circumstances? If only I'd done that repeatable Morrowgrain quest a few more times... But I digress.I'd LOVE to see more Tyrande and would love it even more in Mists if there should develop a conflict (not necessarily a relationship-ending one - but perhaps a vociferous disagreement over some particular course of action) between Tyrande and Malfurion. Would give her an opportunity to shine as Mr. Ziebart describes in his article and show that she is more than just arm-candy to Sir Sleepsalot.I enjoyed this article very much.

A disagreement similar to letting Illidan out of his cage? Yeah, that could be cool.Hmm. What if that was the decision that lead to this current state of affairs? Maybe Tyrande regrets letting Illidan out of the cage after all he did since then and doubts her choices now. That could explain some of this deferring to Malfurion. Could be an interesting story to see her come to terms with that, regain faith in herself again and take charge again.Contrary to many other opinions here, I'd really like to see the two work together and be equals. I don't want Tyrande marginalized by Malfurion and I don't want Malfurion kicked out by Tyrande. Apparently it's just as difficult (for Blizzard) to write a strong couple as it is to write a strong woman.

I actually went back through the quests and took a look at how Fandral talked to us. He was actually alright--busy, impatient and sarcastic, but alright. At the very least, it was a welcome change from the constant "OMG CHAMPION" "HERO HELP ME" "THAT WAS COURAGEOUS!"

@Blayze, I couldn't agree more. I loved that we had a guy like that, who was just so utterly weary of random adventurers walking in and demanding his time. Dude had an entire cilivisation to run, and my toon comes in with ticket number 3584624B asking about Quest A38. His honest reaction helped draw me into the game at that early stage.
