Nov 19th 2011 8:22PM I've been RPing my night elf death knight for a long time, and i'm very happy to finally see an article that sums up what DK RP is truly about these days. Unfortunately for my server it's too late to repair the guilds who only seem to consist of nothing but badass slaughterfests for powerhungry super-evil death knights.
My night elf feels the purpose to prove herself again to her race, even though currently they see her as an abomination of nature. Though because she is in a terrible state physically, thanks to a long time of having been able to rot away, this is a very difficult task. Not to forget that her race accepting her in their midst again would go against thousands of years of tradition.
She deals with her pain addiction by breeding her own animals, and then killing them again. She's conversative and doesn't want to actually 'hurt' what she touches, and this is her solution to that.
As I keep telling people who back away from wanting to RP a death knight;
When you died and were ressurected, and then freed from the Lich King, nothing claims that your head was altered forever, other than that urge to inflict pain which has been stated. Too many believe death knights lack a normal soul. In reality, you are the same person in undeath as you were before. Only you were traumatized, and this might have changed you minorly, or majorly. That is your choice.

So you're giving a counter-argument that pretty much says Coldbear is an asshat? You sir provide very constructive criticism. *cough*
Sep 15th 2011 4:24AM I can't believe that you managed to get my eyes watering on the -third- page.
Aug 26th 2011 8:04AM That the daily quests will be minigames! Sorry Bliz, but... killing another 8 Charred Invaders every day just didn't cut it for me.

I'm a tank because I love crazy multitasking and being responsible for allot of things in a group. Removing threat just gives me one less thing to do, and that only makes tanking a bit more boring for me. xD
If someone pulls aggro? Target dat enemy. Taunt dat enemy. There you go, fixed. Just one more button to press. I don't see the problem.
Jul 6th 2011 5:14AM Well, if you look at it like that you could say removing gear from the game would only remove all those annoyances and only leave the raids attuned to the level of the players, where in the end they will be able to balance the encounters much easier and have allot more time left to create more content at grades of difficulty that are easier to fabricate, and it would make balance in PvP tons and tons easier aswell. (But it also removes the need to grind things for endless hours, so Bliz won't do it.)
Jul 5th 2011 5:14AM I think someone should give Corborus a shot at it.
Jun 21st 2011 4:22AM If there's one thing I couldn't care less about in this expansion (even if it looks this good) then it's mounts. Please spend your time on something else Blizz. :(
Apr 11th 2011 8:18AM This article is much more necessary than many people will realise. Out there is a world of perfect people forfilling the Mary Sue role, and they could all be so much better RPers if they just considered these disadvantages.
When people start about becoming special they start to think about disadvantages like having weird eyes as the article says. Though, the largest problem is that they do not treat that as a disadvantage. Mostly because the people they hang around with do it the same way.
What I want to say to all of you is; Let your character have disadvantages, and have them suffer from them. Read Ylspeth's comment further up. That's what I mean. If your character does not have disadvantages, it's a surreal person. If your character has them but doesn't suffer from them, it's a Mary Sue. ("Yes, I am blind." "Okey, so you don't see the colour of my shirt?" "It's green." "....how do you see that?" "I have mAgIcAl ViSiOn!!!")
Mar 10th 2011 11:31AM Because I feel like it i'm posting my own version aswell.
I'm taking the standpoint of Nozdormu not only saving himself, but perhaps also saving Azeroth from a death in the future caused by the Burning Legion. He does this by forming a dragonflight only he knows of, but none of the other bronze dragons do. He controls the actions of this flight and goes against the timeline structure that he was instructed to stick to by the Titans to prevent Azeroth from falling, because perhaps at some point in the future, this would be the case, and the Burning Legion would be the cause.
The 4 instances and what I believe the purpose was of each:
This instance is the greatest riddle in my theory. Why should Thrall be dead? He would create the Horde and would fight against the Burning Legion, right? Yes, but on the other hand the new Horde would cripple the Alliance who could do the job much easier were the Horde non-existant. Putting Thrall out of the sequence would have made the battle at Icecrown MUCH easier without the Alliance and Horde fighting for the kill. It would have allowed the Alliance to focus on the Burning Legion -only-, and not have to worry about the Horde.
Would the Horde never have entered Azeroth the Alliance would be safe to defend it when the greater threat would come. Medivh and Ner'zhul, both heavily influenced by the Burning Legion, would be dead or out of reach of Azeroth. There would be no Lich King. There would be no crazy wizard just screwing everything up in his madness. The price would be that the New Horde would never come to exist, but as mentioned above, perhaps that is a good thing for the survival of Azeroth.
Battle for Mount Hyjal:
Now lets pretend that the previous attempts of Nozdormu to stop the Horde from ever existing were succesfull, he would have a problem at one point in time. The Battle for Mount Hyjal, where the Horde played a huge part in preventing Archimonde from destroying the World Tree, would have NO HORDE.
By creating a lure in that particular timeline, Nozdormu would force mortals and his own dragons of our time to come back and ensure that the battle would go as planned with our interference.
This explains why Nozdormu's infinite dragonflight did not interfere. They -wanted- you to complete this mission without too much problems, as an extra force replacing the Horde that would not exist at that point in time, had Nozdormu's plans gone as expected.
Culling of Stratholme:
This is an obvious attempt to never let the Lich King return to power, who, even as a rebel, remains a threat created by the Burning Legion. He would also defile the plans of the dreadlords (who are technically agents of the Burning Legion) that are under the command of the Lich King.
Now there remains one question left that i'm answering in this theory, and it goes along with the quest in Dragonblight where Chromie is surprised to see Nozdormu being the leader of the Infinite.
Why is Nozdormu not using his bronze flight to do all this?
The Bronze are meant to follow the timelines. They would not approve of Nozdormu's shennanigans to turn time to his favor, where he and Azeroth would survive. They would say that he would betray the Titans, perhaps take him off his throne as the Aspect, and Nozdormu's goals would then be impossible. Nozdormu likely saw this happen before it occured, and therefore decided to forge the Infinite dragonflight to do the interfering, perhaps already knowing that this would lead to success on his part. Maybe he knows it will not prevent his own death, or Azeroth's, but since Nozdormu knows the future, he knows that we he does right now is good.
So. Ehm. All of you. Stop killing the infinite dragonflight. They are saving us! D:
