Isn't she half-draenei? if not then where'd the human come from? I thought she was the niece of Vindicator Maraad?
Jan 7th 2011 7:28PM In terms of the Warcraft universe and Blizzard games at large, pop culture references are absolutely the norm, and have been for a long time. I tend to like them, ever since I first entered "every little thing she does" back in whichever warcraft that was for.
That said, I do feel like it's become too much. They've developed such a wonderfully rich lore for this world that it's depressing when zone storylines become more about emulating CSI than making you feel like you're affecting the history and politics of this world (Wrathgate comes to mind). Northrend to me exemplified this epic scale of things, and Hyjal is a good example from Cata.
It's all about balance and so far it's been pretty decent. You may have CSI in Westfall but the end is a real treat for people who are fans of the lore. There is danger in getting too carried away. Quest names are a good example. It seems like no quest has a straightforward name these days, or even one that takes itself seriously. Of course I exaggerate but it is a bit distracting when you're giving your quest giver "crabs"....
Even so, I say keep 'em coming, they still overwhelmingly make me chuckle and enjoy the game more rather than detract from my enjoyment.
