Jan 23rd 2012 11:40AM Way back in the stone age, raids had this crazy thing called attunements. They were quests that were required to even have the right to enter the raid instance. In the case of Molten Core and Black Wing Lair - once you completed the attunement, you no longer had to run through the dungeon to the physical entrance of the Raid, but there were orbs that teleported you directly to the raid near the entrance of the 5/10 man dungeon which they were linked to.
Oct 26th 2011 10:07AM I have played both Ally and horde (more ally) - and I will say that in terms of this point of the story - there is a horde bias... but I feel there needs to be, because we all know deep down that if push comes to shove - the alliance wins in the end. Warcrafts core has always been that humanity will find a way, so really the horde needs to shine now as eventually the pendulum will swing back the other way and swing back hard.
As for the age "thing" using my own anecdotal experience - in vanilla, I felt there was a larger alliance presence, you had the 25+ crowd who were coming in from other MMO's and went with the familiar class archetypes. You also had the younger crowds who defaulted to the "good guys." On the horde side, I want to say that you had this big influx of Warcraft fans - the guys who came to revere Thrall from warcraft 3. And that consisted of a majority of the 16-25 crowd.
Early on, the experience gamers from the 25+ crowd seemed to excel. but those college aged kids quickly caught up and passed them - and what I have seen develop is that as the younger player cuts their teeth on the alliance, as they hit that late teen phase they go to the horde.
Just my own experience.
Jun 15th 2011 11:58AM You missed like I did on an earlier character. The quest requests you to turn it into Hamuul in Aesinna's Grove, but the quest helper directed most people early on to the copy of Hamuul that was giving them the quests at the shrine of Malorne. After a series of fix's Hamuul is no longer there at Malorne's shrine to turn in the quest - you must go Aesinna's Grove where you get the cut scene.
May 16th 2011 9:36AM I think you take the timing a tad to literal in terms of the "Night elves found the scythe in duskwood".
That all goes right back to the original vanilla quest that starts in Ashenvale and sends you to Duskwood.
It is at that point that a "night elf adventurer" "FOUND" it in duskwood.
At this point in Vanilla it is safe to assume that the Night Elves already heard of the worgen infestation in Silverpine and wanted to investigate with the scythe in hand.
During commute to Silverpine I think it is safe to say that the scythe was stolen and was not re-obtained until Grizzly Hills, hence why the night elves get to Gilneas during the time period of the cataclysm.
The Scythe was "FOUND" in duskwood and then went through multiple thefts - some of which occur on the alliance and horde versions of those respective quests - before the night elves finally got to Gilneas with it.
It just served no purpose in the comic to detail the side events that occurred in the time frame of finding the scythe and actually transporting it to Silverpine/Gilneas.
Apr 10th 2011 7:55PM The confusion here is where he states that he was banished for 10,000 years. The banishment occurred in Azeroth where he was imprisoned at the end of the war of the ancients. During the third war (the events of warcraft 3) he was freed to help stop the legion. Once again he was shunned by his people for becoming part demon to accomplish exactly what they freed him from his prison for. He then ran off and through a long series of events that occur in the frozen throne expansion to warcraft 3 ended up in outlands.
