Looking forward to this and everything else surrounding the lore in 4.2. Despite being unable to raid, I hope that I will get a few encounters with the new Druids of the Flame. It is farfetched to think that Staghelm and his goonies could just swoop in and take Thrall so easily; but they did have the element of surprise. And maybe the Emerald Dream weakened Malfurion somewhat? /meh Seems like a cool questline anyhow. :)
Did you forget to look at the spell details? :P Check here.
My mistake. I miss-read what Rainemard said. I forgot this was a PTR, and as such, will most likely be changed because the spell shouldn't be doing what it's doing.Derp.
's okay as long as no harm is done. :) Are you looking forward to doing the quest line yourself?
Not particularly. I'm not a fan of the romance, myself. :PThe Legendary staff, on the other hand...
No matter how many people try to explain how Mr. Staghelm is very very powerful because he is very very old and very very powered-up by a very very fiery lord of very very molten lavas it will never make sense in my mind.Malfurion is a way older druid, he managed to come back from the Emerald Dream uncorrupted while Staghelm utterly failed. Ragnaros is a single lord, while there are at least THREE(Kalec unconfirmed) Dragon Aspects in there. Hell, Norzdormu himself could eat Staghelm and Ragnaros for breakfast, alone anytime.Edit: very
You are assuming that Staghelm failing to leave uncorrupted makes him weaker though. Being corrupted could just as easily make him even stronger at the cost of losing his mind (or whatever Emerald Dream corruption does to you.) And the Elemental Lords are ridiculously powerful on their own. Possibly similar in strength to some of the Dragon Aspects on the mortal realm. But certainly much stronger within their own plane, where Ragnaros seemingly gave Staghelm all the buffing out he would need. And Fandral Staghelm did not kill all of the above. He simply had to grab Thall and run. Something we all know Druids are quite good at doing.EDIT: And you overestimate Dragon Aspects. We killed one certain Aspect weekly for months! XD
Silly complaint but why reward cloaks when raiders will hit friendly the first week of firelands raiding and get the better rep cloaks from there? I know the game is not just about raiding but I am sure noone would mind if instead of cloaks we got rings or even better neck items?
What I am more confused by is the fact that Nozdormu, Aspect of -Time-, present in all possible pasts, presents and futures, did not see this coming. I wonder how he could miss that?
damm it , why romance oh why , thrall will start to pick up flowers instead of defeating Deathwing amg!
Fandral and 4 random Druids pulling something like this off in the presence of so many powerful beings is just too unrealistic, no matter how much Ragnaros has empowered them.Those 4 random Druids are the ones immobilizing 3 Aspects, Malfurion and Kalec for more than a minute while Fandral is taking his time dealing with Thrall.Then, after they are released, they just stand there, instead of taking action against them.Blizzard seems to have taken a lesson from Hollywood in thinking the viewers/players are all ignorant kids who are ready to swallow anything they throw at them.
Great quest line, cheesy way to get Thrall away from the group, but Staghelm and his lackeys did have the power of ALL four elemental planes behind them! The love story was pretty sweet, looks like Jaina and Thrall will just be good friends - no weird inter-species love for those two.Although, the one thing that stood out most for me was the thought, when Cylonas transported you across Uldum, that having a whirlwind for a mount would just be AWESOME! WTB Whirlwind Mount, Blizzard... maybe need to be Exalted with the new faction? (Yes, reputation grinds are easy, but rare drops for mounts suck.)
