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.
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).
Regarding the following portion of the Church of the Holy Light section:
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.
This thread was seriously stolen from me :< not fair. But overall, a lot more in depth than my post :) Keep up the good work.
