Jan 26th 2011 2:32PM Something thats been on my mind for a while. I'm a bit or a lore nerd, so I like picking classes for the backstory they provide, within my own head though since I don't like roleplaying.
However in the novels and even in game we see npc's with unique models due to their prowess in their class. Example being druids with bright golden eyes and antlers, paladins/priests with halos, warlocks with fiery red eyes or demonic appendages and so on. We already have it with Death Knights with their cold blue eyes.
What I want to know is, has Blizzard made any mention or this, or has anyone for that matter? and is it doable?
Jan 20th 2011 4:47PM Ok
Lich King is just out of the frozen throne and is launching a full assault on the peoples of Azeroth.
Deathwing has just erupted from Deepholm and is raining destruction on all in his wake.
Both at the height of their individual power wouldn't you say.
Now out of the two, who would win in a one on one fight?

Dec 25th 2010 8:16PM I loves the loot
Dec 19th 2010 11:52PM I love it all, I really want to reroll an undead character now just to see all of this.
No matter what Sylvanas' motives are I believe I have a pretty good idea about what is going to happen next.
Sylvanas will continue to expand her borders, killing humans and raising them as 'Forsaken' untill the whole northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms is hers, except from the Blood Elf lands. I have a feeling that if she tries to push further south than that the Alliance will devote a large scale force to try and put a final stop to her.
Garrosh will let this happen because 1. He doesn't know Sylvanas is using the all-purpose blight 2. He doesn't know Sylvanas' true intentions 3. None of the allies of the horde have suffered from her actions.
Now consider this, she reaches a standstill with the alliance forces and she starts to take heavy losses, how will she find more troops? Clearly she wants the Horde backing her up against 'her' war with the Alliance, but about when their usefulness finally comes to an end. She may secretly begin to make new forsaken from the fallen Horde members, but those won't be in large enough numbers surely, she may end up mass killing all of the living Horde within 'her' kingdom, and why stop there? There are alot of living Blood Elves very close by, undeath has been good to her, she's just doing her former countrymen a service. Then Garrosh see's the light, and the Horde and Alliance go for Sylvanas.
Of course I doubt that all of the original forsaken, with their wills intact, will want to be a part of Sylvanas' crusade, either because they see it as wrong, or they see that she is just mad and know that should she win she won't make their lives easy. Seperate Forsaken faction?
A small question of her past. When she started her quest to kill the Lich King her forsaken followers went along with her because they shared the same goal. The lich king tore them from their old lives, lives with families, friends, jobs, communities. Essentially a happy life for most, and then turned them into the undead, and made them kill thousands more of their kinsmen to be raised as more undead. Hell I'd want to kill the guy who did that to me. They didn't exactly like the living after that either, hell they still had their lives, so some clearly didn't worry about killing them or using them in plague experiments. What now?
The lich king is dead, his goal of turning all life in azeroth into his undead slaves is over. Sylvanas and her Forsaken loyalists now don't know what to do. Whether it's because they were risen by Arthas, exposed to his influence, or some other reason that we don't yet know, the Forsaken have taken up his cause. They are now killing the living and raising them into undeath against their will, and from the sounds of it they share the same mindless unwavering loyalty to Sylvanas that the Lich King's scourge had for him. Similar much?
Admittedly it is quite a turn around for Sylvanas, but perhaps the last few years have finally broken what was left of her High Elf decency. Maybe it's mind control, maybe its just pure posession, or maybe she and Deathwing have something in common.
Last bit I swear.
What I want to know is, what are the Argent Crusade and the Knights of the Ebon Blade doing now?
Yes we see the Argent Crusade taking up some of the Scarlet crusades old holdings, and why not? Did use to be their home. But can they be so naive as to completely ignore what is happening on their doorstep? The Forsaken are using their plague to kill innocent farmers (in some cases), and then raising them into undead against their will, and in the process they are blighting the land which many have worked hard to heal. I know they don't interfere with Horde and Alliance conflicts, but this goes beyond simple politics.
Also the Knights of the Ebon Blade, where are they? Of course we haven't heard from them so they are probably helping to clear up the scouge in Northrend, since we haven't heard a peep from them in the Eastern Kingdoms or Kalimdor, aside from the normal. I don't count Thassarian or Koltira since they are working for seperate factions, and heres my point.
We see what happens to Koltira, well the horde do, and understandably Sylvanas would be pissed off, but I don't think she is going to just lock him up. Free will sounds like a big issue with Sylvanas doesn't it? Now I can understand that the Knights wouldn't interfere with the battle he took part in, since it was his choice, but he is still their brother, as shown by his conversations with Thassarian, faction disputes can't tear them apart baby. Perhaps not currently, but eventually when word spreads of Koltira's fate many Knights will stand in arms againts Sylvanas, she is all for what they are also against.
Well that's what I believe :) Rant over
