Know Your Lore: The unfortunate tale of Lilian Voss {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2011 7:02PM According to quest text, this character gave up her childhood for her father, and was raised as a weapon against the Scourge. The Scourge is ten years old. This GIRL is nothing more than a teenager, and she knows stealth, sorcery, martial arts and can phase through solid objects.

I am confused, and I don't like this one bit.

Dec 26th 2010 2:56PM I think that depends on what kind of person her brother is.

Know Your Lore: The Dragonmaw clan {WoW}

Nov 25th 2010 5:51AM We don't have any dragons either, and we have a word for them. ^^ My guess is that they had a word for some mythical creature that they imagined looked similar to the dragons of Azeroth.

It feels somewhat ironic, though, considering their fate.

Nov 25th 2010 5:38AM Actually, she's gray.

We don't know exactly why the Dragonmaw and Blackrock clans have gray skin color, it could be a few different things. The three most likely explanations are, IMO:

- It has something to do with the skin color taint, a step further towards fel orcs that doesn't include consuming more demon blood.
- It has to do with their original skin color being more gray than brown.
- It has to do with them spending lots of time in the areas surrounding Blackrock Mountain (under the leadership of Rend Blackhand and Nefarian), which implies that there is something near that mountain (read: Ragnaros) that changed their skin color (kind of like the Dark Iron dwarves).

Nov 24th 2010 7:20PM Fel orcs have consumed enough blood to start being transformed physically (beyond just being red), and therefore there is no return for them. Tainted orcs (that means the normal, green ones) are orcs that have had lots of interactions with demonic magic, so they will have some changes, but since they haven't reached the final stage yet, they're not beyond saving. Orcs like Grom and the rest of the Warsong clan after drinking the blood of Mannoroth for the second time are usually referred to as Chaos orcs (the name used in Wc3), and that stage is also revertible. It's in the middle of tainted orc and fel orc, and further interaction with demonic magic will lead to drastic changes (= fel orcs).

Breakfast Topic: Varian Wrynn doesn't care about Menethil people {WoW}

Nov 24th 2010 8:11AM Aren't there more dwarves there anyway? And in that case, shouldn't it be the council's problem?

Nov 14th 2010 5:56PM Of course, the trolls were first. The trolls are ALWAYS first. They were there before everyone else had come, and they will remain after everyone else has perished.

Breakfast Topic: Does world PvP feel dishonorable? {WoW}

Nov 6th 2010 9:22AM For me, I think World PvP is as much a part of the game as endgame raiding is. Killing members of the opposite faction, no matter their level, is not something to shy away from. Rather than that, it should be endorsed. If Blizzard didn't want it to happen at all, they wouldn't have put two factions in the game. The very core of it is built around having two factions fighting each other. It does not make sense for me to not kill my enemy.

Although, even if I say that, I never actually go after low-level characters just for the sake of it. There's no challenge to it, and I don't see the fun in it. It makes as much sense to me as soloing RFC at 80 for the gear does.

I always try to face opponents that are equal to or better than me, so that I can improve my skill, because that is the point of having any kind of PvP in the game at all.
