Doing the quests for him he seems like he genuinely cares for you as a friend (well as much as a crazed troll can) and wants you to be his number 2. Every time I've done that quest line I secretly have wanted to switch sides and help him. Not because I particularly want to be scourge but just because he seems like a cool guy.
Aug 30th 2010 3:26PM Sorry if this was posted before. I typed it up, submitted and it never showed up and I had to leave so now I'm going to retype it.
Anyway here's my 2 cents:
I think there definitely is room for atheism in WOW though at the level of the common folk. Adventurers have explored and seen too much to deny the existence of beings of higher power (not getting into the semantics of what defines a god). The common folk don't see all of that. I'm sure they know that magic exists but to them what's the difference between the priest that heals a cut while talking about some mystical "light" and the mage that can throw fire but without all that religious mumbo jumbo. I think there's room for the person to decide that they both wield some power that is inherent to the universe, but not necessarily some all powerful being.
Someone rebutted about the idea saying that common folk see adventures on a daily basis tramping through their farms and towns. That of course assumes that we, as adventurers, have a tangible impact for the viewpoint of lore. I'm just not sure that we do. If Blizzard was to sit down and write the lore of this time period it wouldn't include "millions of adventures slew yogg saron thousands upon thousands of times." The example I would use is Onyxia. In vanilla we killed her over and over again but yet now the official lore is that Varian killed her. So what part do we play in lore? That one I can't answer.
Jun 4th 2009 8:36PM I just read the most recent issue of World of Warcraft's comic and it led me to an interesting question.
During the pre-Wrath in game event Thrall and Garrosh fighting and before it is interrupted it seems clear that Garrosh has the upper hand. In this issue of the comic they have that scene but it really makes it seem like the fight was interrupted before anyone could be said to have the upper hand. Sure it's not important but I'm just interested if this might be a retcon on Blizzards part or if the fight just wasn't meant to be focused on in the comic.
Dec 21st 2008 11:42PM Not being on an RP server I don't really have a character I play but I have a specific personality that is in mind about who my character is .First off he is an Orc Death Knight. For some reason I see him as more of a Ronin type character. While he supports the Orcs and the Horde he's out to do good in general as retribution for his past sins.
While I don't think much about the evil powers I use all that much has anyone ever wondered about where we use our powers?
For example I was in Sholazar Basin next to the Avatar of Freya with my unholy blight (desecration) spreading on the soil around me. While I know I'm doing good by killing the scourge I feel like I'm doing just as much damage.
