Mar 26th 2012 6:05PM Am I the only one that still got that chill after watching the Ulduar trailer?
It's been years and I still think, for whatever reason, it was the best raid in wow to date. I can't speak for anyone else, but it just has this inherent coolness factor that I find myself hard pressed to describe.

For some reason what you said reminded me of the line from the Dark Knight that the Joker said...
[You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!"]
The problem is as you said, it is that they told us the plan and that Deathwing was merely a tool. Even though he might do teribble things it doesnt strike the same fear into you when you know that he is simply an empty shell, with no redemable quality, and who is simply a chew toy for the Old Gods. Personally I always expected more to it, considering the Deathwing that you know from the older lore who is not only powerful but sly and conniving; however they seem to have given up on that part of his character, instead treating him like one of the trained attack gods of the old dogs.
Nov 20th 2011 8:40AM I would agree with you, except that is the exact dynamic that occured in BC.
Illidan wasn't evil, he was only amassing an army against the Burning Legion who wanted him dead for not going through with the plan of destroying Kel'thuzad. It's an interesting dynamic, but one they had just done recently. I think the whole "I've been leading you along to make you strong enough to become my unstoppable tool against your own friends" worked for WotLK.
Oct 23rd 2011 10:50PM I've gone to this website for the last couple of years, and while this isn't the first time I've seen your name, I never knew your position or importance to wow insider. However if I have learned anything in my years of existence it's that it is the people that you don't hear about, behind the scenes, that deserve the most credit for how successful something is. Goodbye Dan O'Halloran.
Goodnight, and good luck.
Oct 17th 2010 8:02PM Yeah but even if it isn't chronological, what are those mountains across the water from Auberdine? It cant be Teldrissal and there isn't any other island there that i know of.
Oct 17th 2010 5:38PM Great cinematic, but i have a question...
You mention that we saw Darkshore/Auberdine, but Deathing would've had to pop up north of auberdine judging from the cinematic. (This lead me to rewatch the cinematic which brings me to another question...)
Why did deathwing pop out of the middle of some mountains in the cinematic when he was supposed to pop out of the maelstrom, not to mention the fact that their are no mountains north of auberdine. If someone could please set things straight, cause right now i'm not sure if im crazy or if its a retcon of some kind? (maybe artistis freedom)?
Jun 29th 2010 8:46PM I agree with a lot of your comments, but i think the manga was focused less on the story behind Mages and the backstory of famous magi, and more on the Nexus Wars, and the choices every mage had to take between Malygos and the Kirin Tor, since if you think about it the mortal races using magic has caused quite a lot of problems (Demon Legions, Elemental Lords, The Sundering). It added some conflict between the mages and the Blue Dragonflight, and this new character was designed likely to show to draw for power versus "what is right". That is at least how I interpreted it.
