To all the people who will be complaining about some of the blogger's ideas of the races - of course you're not going to like everything. We build ideas from the lore based on how we interpret a lot of things, and most people ultimately interpret things differently, no matter how we go about it. Unless the case in point is flat-out contrary to something officially said on the website or a book - which might happen - don't call it out as "clearly" breaking terms with the game.
Dec 18th 2008 4:12PM I wouldn't be so fast to assume Illidan is dead until there's some evidence past the Black Temple to suggest it, really. Kazak lived on through his debut as a raid boss in the Blasted Lands, and despite Molten Core being the second raid dungeon in vanilla WoW, Ragnaros and his armies are mentioned as being key figures in the Twilight Hammer's plans to create a cataclysmic conflict between the powers of ice and fire during the Midsummer Festival quests. On the other hand, the death of Nefarion is mentioned in Netherwing Ledge, and Kael'thas' own defeat at Tempest Keep is made rather official in the events of Quel'Danas.
All things said, I agree that we probably did kill Illidan, but I'm not going to regard it as canon truth until I hear it out of an NPCs mouth. Somebody who has, feel free to show me the door.
Dec 5th 2008 5:30AM Er, Quel'thalas was the name of the high elven nation, not a specific city as I recall. A nation that the blood elves are currently in possession of, with as much a reason to consider it theirs as any high elf who wants it back.
Dec 5th 2008 5:29AM It probably doesn't help that Undercity spends a fair amount of time in direct opposition to Dalaran's activities in Lordaeron . . .
Nov 26th 2008 7:48PM Ouch . . . even with the animation woes aside, the direction of the scene itself was kind of uninspiring. Not to mention that watching a "kid" in modern-day clothing whose eyes turn red briefly before becoming dangerous, drawing a magical sword that's disguised as a charm around his neck, and promptly charging down the dragon that was butchering veteran adventurers by the droves just screeches in my ears like the sound a knife makes when it's blade is drawn along a piece of rough steel - against the groove. That is just not really the Warcraft fantasy at any level.
And I'm not even going to touch the art quality, which has already been handled nicely, or the nitpicks, which are really just nitpicks.
Nov 13th 2008 9:31AM It's a long shot, but I'm all for trying.
