how long did it take you to find out alla of this anyway? and you must have a LOT of time on your hands to find all of that out.

Queggy said:If a Dwarf is religious, he or she will usually follow the way of Light.Sure do!
well, gnomes are athiest, but imma be unique and sayWORSHIPER OF THE OLD GODShonestly it was hard for me to kill c'thun (well, not kill)Already beat you to it. Bwahaha
I had actually thought a little on wow religion, but mostly on the scarlet crusade side of it. Like how they supposedly follow the light, but they are mostly (if not always) misguided. This could also be linked back to the Crusades in rl.
The religion of the Forsaken I find to be the most interesting. If my Blood Elf DK was going to follow any sort of religion, I think it would be that one.
Aeiterealle Rocketghoul was a member of The Sisters of Steel before she fell in Strathholme.Only Dwarves, Humans and Gnomes are qualified at all to become a Sister of Steel, since only these three races can harden their skin to Steel.After all, WotlK proved that all three were at one time created by the Titans, ie. Vykrul, Earthern, and Mechagnomes..Now, she's with the Mystery of the Makers club...Antheryl Cottonpaw is a descendant of a bloodline of Druids of the Claw, but ever since the invasion of the Burning Legion, she herself has chosen the path of a Druid of the Wild, specifically in aspects of the Claw and aspects of the Grove.Antheryl pays her respects to Ysera the Dreamer, Cenarius, Malorne, and to a lesser extent, Elune (for if it were not due to Elune and Malorne, Cenarius would not exist).
Also you forgot about the Cult of the Damned, an evil organization that worships the Lich King.The Cult of the Damned is not a religion. And they don't worship him, they serve him.
Regarding the following portion of the Church of the Holy Light section:Another question that has arisen is the question of the seat of power. Is the Stormwind Cathedral still the seat of power, or is the Exodar or Shattrath the seat now. After all, if the Naaru are light given form, then should the seat of power not be someplace where they reside?I'm not sure it matters. The church of the holy light isn't a governing body of some kind, or anything like that. There isn't really a need to designate one area as the "seat of power" and subordinate the others. Shattrath, the Exodar, and the Stormwind Cathedral can all be major centers for followers of the Holy Light without needing to compete with each other. There wouldn't really be a point to that, especially considering the distance between the three locations--if a devotee of the Light needs to go to one such place for whatever reason, I imagine they'd pick whichever's closest.Also, the Naaru are emissaries of the Light, and not the Light embodied. I don't think their presence at one or another of the given locations would dictate how important that place is. The Naaru are important, but they're not that central to the religion.
Why did you Necro this thread?
Sorry, didn't realize it was old. I got a link to this blog post from another thread on a similar topic, and didn't think to check the dates first.
According to my orc hunter's history, he spends a good deal of time around the Tauren. Mainly because he finds the lack of control amongst his fellow orcs, and the trolls, to be repugnant. During that time he picked up both the shamanistic beliefs, and druidic beliefs of the Tauren. Upon reaching adulthood and choosing the path of the hunter, he spent years in the bush. There he combined several aspects of both beliefs into what he calls "The Great Cycle", which focuses on respect for the spirits of the land (elements) and the careful observation of, and participation in, "The Hunt" which represents the balance of nature as the eternal struggle of predator and prey. Essentially, he believes that we are given form and life by the spirits (elements) and that when we die that same life energy returns to the spirits to find new form. Therefore, one gives the spirits proper respect. For example, one asks the spirits of the earth to produce the ore one needs, and in return one might give an offering of the remains of a deer killed for food, buried at the site.The Hunt is the central theme of this "Cycle", as it represents the exchange of life energy from predator to prey, and from death to life. He views it as a balance, not necessarily delicate, but sensitive. So though he hunts, as all creatures must, he also acts to preserve the "balance" by interfering in the wholesale slaughter of wildlife. (for example, he refuses to do quests to kill large quantities of wildlife for camps, because as he sees it thats what domesticated animals are for).The final important point is his belief in "survival of the fittest", he fully expects and even hopes that when his death comes, it will be at the tooth and claw of a finer predator than himself. That way his spirit and life will return to the land that has blessed and challenged him his whole life, and find new form and life again when it comes time for rebirth.
My DK follows the Earthmother (yey, hippie) and believes that the shape of the Earthmother is the core of Azeroth. He further believes that Elune is just one of the Earthmother's handpicked guardians of life. Also, the titans wasn't the makers, they were just engineers whom envolved from the living seed the Earthmother once gave to iron in Northrend according to my Belf DK. GREAT post, it's truely awesome! :D
being a paladin in life now deathknight in death my char still follows/prays to the holy light and will kill any who endanger its holy site or the graves of those who faithfully served it.
The Titans were unable to kill them—they discovered, to their dismay, that Azeroth and the Old Gods were linked, and to kill one would be to kill the other.This confuses me. What, exactly, do we do to C'thun and Yogg-Saron, then?The argument is that the Titan's version of killing involves glassing the entire planet. Conversely, mortals are small and can get in to perform precise surgery, removing the infection without harming the host.Think nanite surgery (which doesn't exist, so far as I know, but the idea is sound) versus cracking open the ribcage because you had to cut open a ventricle.Nano medicine does exist in research stage atm, basically small robots who carries medicine and building material to affected area with precision, this help ful in certain cancer medicines due the poison hurts other cells also so with precision you cancel out most of the damage elsewhere in the body with no cancer in it.Nanite surgery closest fields is most likely sound surgery and ray surgery. Sound surgery is sounds who you with certain decibel and other factors you set it on a area in the body at a certain depth, so you can destroy the area without having to open up the host, this is also research stage on mostly.Ray surgery is then you use a particular accelerator who then through it tunnel leads to a table or machine where the patience is placed at, the table is then lifted up and adjusted so that the particulars is then hit there the area to be affected is, it is basically a more precise way to use gamma ray beams to affect cancer. This is in active atm with a few hundred patience a year in one place in europe. Was a long time since i read the articles so may gotten the name of the fields wrong, but I know how they worked like. Nanite surgery on the other hand is none existent so far i know, perhaps in the future:)
This thread was seriously stolen from me :< not fair. But overall, a lot more in depth than my post :) Keep up the good work.
