Jan 24th 2012 4:00PM The people of Ironforge didn't have an issue with her claim at all. In fact if she hadn't locked down the city and held everyone hostage in a hostile takeover and tried to get along she would have been fine.
The only one who wanted her head was Varian, since she was holding Anduin hostage.
Its clear in the novels that Ironforge was going to respect her claim....but she kinda went batshit crazy for a bit.
Jan 24th 2012 3:59PM Just a little background for those who haven't read the WoW novels.....Varian and SI:7 sneak to IF, then he grabs Moira and is gonna kill her when the Dwarves of ironforge pretty much say "Stop it you dumbass she is the legitimate ruler of our city after Magni" Even Muradin agrees with this (I think to stop a full IF revolt). So basically to appease everyone since Moira's child is heir to BOTH Ironforge and the Dark Iron, was establish the council of Three Hammers to unite all the dwarves and to rule justly until this infant grows up.
Lets be honest its really a move to keep Moira in check but also to keep Ironforge happy.
To give an idea on how Varian was feeling since Anduin was basically being held hostage (Varian didn't know he escaped to Theramore)....he was totally gonna get his Lo'Gosh on her dwarf ass.
Jan 24th 2012 11:27AM Seredane was indeed a portal to the emerald dream and location of one of the world dragons (similar ones are found in Duskwood and Feralas and one 1 other off the top of my head). I died to those damn dragons a lot.
Also on the Moira front....I appreciate the Game of Thrones reference (FOR WINTERFELL!!!!) Oh poor...destroyed...winterfell (read the books people). But I have another spin on it. The Lannister take doesn't really hold because Cersei, though a conniving bitch, legitimately was Robert Baratheon's queen....its just her kids are not his since she's got a thing for her brother.
Moira is different....she basically exiled herself for love....and chose to stay when we offed her husband in god forsaken BRD. Apparently she is Magni's only heir too therefor the throne will fall to her son. However, Moira also comes into play as the head of the Dark Iron who hate the Bronzebeards and would gladly destroy them.
Moira COULD have played it differently....even the people of Ironforge recognized her right to the throne, but then she went crazy. Her big mistake was taking all of Ironforge AND Anduin Wrynn hostage (thank god he had Jaina's hearthstone to escape to Theramore). In doing that she invoked the wrath of the Lion....and I don't mean Lannister's either.
She can't rule Ironforge because Varian WILL NOT ALLOW IT.....since ya know he came 2 inches to SLITTING HER THROAT IN HER SLEEP WITH SI:7 since he was pissed about Anduin.
Oct 25th 2011 1:30PM Yeah....cause I REALLY want to defend a city in a world event that one....I don't like to start with....and two....why the crap am I gonna defend something I know in advance is destined to fall and I cant control it?
I'm just hoping Jaina sees all of this....glares north toward Orgrimmar, yells "Lok'tar BITCHES!" and nukes the hell out of Orgimmar
Sep 9th 2011 3:15PM I disagree entirely that SE bears any blame on this at all. Packaging and the contents of a package are advertising for the developer plain and simple, always has been, always will be. GameStop is blurring the lines between retail and service provider, and they crossed a HUGE legal line when they altered original packaging and claimed it to be new.
GameStop will settle any and all legal action over this because they will lose. In fact they will be lucky if SE doesn't sue them for illegal business practices AND harm from the damage GameStop caused from removing the coupons. Remember GameStop didn't exactly replace what was lost....just replaced it with crap that guarantees someone will come back to GameStop.
Sep 8th 2011 12:57PM @Decaying,
Are you freakin kidding me......the book is about THE SHATTERING....the events leading to CATACLYSM.....Who the crap do you think it might be?
Maybe a pissed off black dragon....and just maybe that door he's busting down is the world pillar.....I mean seriously?
Sep 8th 2011 11:22AM Q for Holisky,
Is there some reason you can't go get your own Sushi and have to try the Japanese version of "make me a sammich?"
Sep 6th 2011 4:25PM I really hope that was a REALLY bad attempt at trolling and you aren't serious.....
Sep 2nd 2011 3:32PM I respectfully disagree with Matt on the threat changes....because now I don't get kicked out of troll heroics because of my gear (hello we have to run them to get better gear) compared to decked out FL gear folks just farming VP.
However I feel this definitely more due to bad and too fast inflated scaling on gear.
In short....Im fine with the change....but Blizzard created the problem (as well as DPSers who just can't wait 2-4 seconds before nuking the hell out of everything).
Aug 15th 2011 2:23PM @Noyou,
Oh and one more thing.....you should learn how the world works....you want to police and nanny everything so nothing bad happens.....the real world doesn't work like that.
I wasn't dismissing the situation at all.....but this guild blew it out of proportion (and I personally would have left that guild the minute I found out they were googling stuff about guildies)
