Some Forsaken probably love this and think of it as a gift. I mean, with your emotions dulled, that guilt and remorse of what you did under the Lich King's control is a lot easier to handle.
Now I'm done. :P
Oct 16th 2008 10:40PM Just thought I'd clarify my view of the whole Forsaken-having-feelings-or-not deal.
Alright. I want you all to imagine you're terrified. How does it feel? Not the feeling itself, but the sensation in your body? Your adrenaline surges, your heart beats faster, you may even feel a tightness in your chest. That all contributes to the actual emotion you're feeling, which is fear.
Now, take away all the bodily sensations. Now it's just the emotion. You can see how it's pretty dull right? Without all the sensations, the emotion isn't as effective. You feel fear, you're afraid, but you don't have the whole thing. That emotion isn't complete is it? It's like you're only feeling half of it, right?
That's how a forsaken feels. All their emotions are dimmed out because the physical sensations aren't there.
Now, you may also see how this can intensify an emotion, right? Being vengeful is one that's usually paired with anger. With the sensation of anger gone, that's dimmed out. But, does feeling vengeful have a sensation without anger? Not really. So that emotion becomes dominant, just like some others. Without the physical sensation of our emotions, most of them would feel empty and distant.
That's how I view Forsaken emotions, and that's how I roleplay mine. I just thought I'd share. :)

Seems to me they're nerfing everyone to buff them up to a shadow of their former selves just so they'd be satisfied. Like with gas prices.
They give us almost exactly what we need, everything's fine and dandy and everyone's excited, then they take EVERYTHING away, then restore only some of it. People think, "well, it's better than the nerf, right?" and keep on going. This beta business is starting to disgust me.
