The people who write the lore and cutscenes in game don't know how to work with Malfurion. When you read the books and short stories, it's simply not the same Malfurion that we see in game. He's not a jerk at all, but in the game Blizzard doesn't know how.. or just hasn't gotten around to figuring out how to translate the Malfurion in the stories to the character we see in game.Malfurion in the written stories is such a reserved, quietly guilty guy. A lot of "Things suck because I wasn't strong enough/did the wrong thing".. but none of that gets into the quest text or cut scenes.I loved Malfurion to death before Cataclysm. I was excited beyond belief to know he would be coming back. Then I played through Hyjal.. and then the molten front.. and now finally him telling Tyrande to hush (Why Blizzard did that.. I don't know but it angers me a lot. I honestly think that was suppose to come off much softer then it did. "Hush tyrande, you're exhausted and nearly colasping. You can tell me later, where is Illidan?" and not the "hush tyrande, you're speaking out of turn" that it came off as) just makes me incredibly sad. In game he's just not as awesome as he should be.

Yes, very much agreed! He's such a different character in-game it really frustrates me.This very article points out how Tyrande's character has been damaged by changes in WoW, why do we just accept that Malfurion's character hasn't been damaged in the same way? He never treated her as arm candy or something to be kept in the kitchen before. Now we just accept it because of a single word in a recent instance?That's a load of crap.
