Feb 23rd 2010 5:53PM I totally agree your view on Tyrande's characterization. It's not like she experienced 10000 years as the leader of the nightelf, it's like just a few years after WotA(Knaak wrote it a few years ago).
The WotA Tyrande was just a young nightelf girl. So I understand she act so differently than WC3.
But 10000 years passed, I think the WC3 Tyrande is better as a brave and a little bit savage leader. About the Stormrage novel one, I agree to put some struggle on her, some of them are very good so I can accept them even she's not as good as the WC3 Tyrande. But later Knaak didn't do a good job on building her character, all she did is calling her goddess, fight satyrs, got captured over and over again, too pale and ideal, pretty much like many female characters in Knaak's other novels.
