Gahhhh anyone else feel like grabbing a shovel to start digging in the glades
*sigh* Anybody got a link to Ask CDev #2? I love it when they answer questions by not answering them.
Must know what is buried there......
In other words: Elune is not a Naaru.
I like when they say that Velen made an "outlandish" claim on that matter... that is so true that it can almost be used in any real life religion discussions.
What an enlightening little Q+A.
The only reason the whole stupid 'Elune is a Naaru' thing came up was because someone made a Tin Foil Hat article on wowinsider and due to people not realizing tin foil hat means wild and crazy theory, are acting like it's true, no matter how many times Blizzard says: No.
It's a joke; it has been a running joke since that article came out, especially since Elune was around before the Naaru showed up(IE Priestess of Elune unit from Warcraft 3). If anything they are just milking the joke to make people's heads spin around.If you read the lore on both, the only likeness between a Naaru and Elune is that both are said to give out light; but no Naaru has done what Elune has done over the centuries.
I think that if Elune was a Naaru, she'd have manifested during the War of the Ancients, as that was a far greater conflict than what was seen during the events of TBC, which was practically crawling with Naaru. I'd be more willing to believe her to be titan-made or even a titan herself, except for her correlation with the White Lady, and the lack of evidence to support a claim that the moons were titan-made.I think that, as in all things, a balance existed on Azeroth. There were the Old Gods on one end, Elune (and possibly others) on the other. All we know is that when the titans discovered Azeroth, the balance was severely tipped in the Old God's favor. Elune may have been in hiding or, being such an incorporeal deity, she might only be able to manifest when there are those who believe in her and call to her (and even then, historically it has only been her power that manifests, never herself).
I think I'm gonna grab an old shovel from my bank and go dig the hell out of them Glades. Mark my words, it's dreadlords down there, having some weird dreadlordgy and stuff. Damn dreadlords.
