I’m going to miss UC on my horde. :/ I never spent much time in darnassus on my alliance, but UC has been my favorite city since I started in BC on my first character ever (an undead lock).
Wait what? But if azerite sightings are coming in from across the world, why the hell are you concerned about smuggling it to the Eastern Kingdoms? It's already there! And Silithus to Kalimdor is a terrible route. Jesus, this makes even less sense than Sylvanas sacrificing Undercity. I really hope this is just a red herring and won't actually be in the real scenario. The "renegade party frames Sylvanas to spark a war" theory is a lot more interesting.
This is terrible writing, the motivation make no sense.
I honestly think this stuff is misinformation and place holder text for now. I doubt Blizzard likes all of the major plot spoilers getting datamined, and while they can't hide everything (like models, zone maps, etc), this is the kind of thing that is easy to change with each build. Regardless, I'm just happy they are finally focusing on the Horde vs Alliance conflict again, even if it does just go back to our usual must kill the big bad of the xpac with Old Gods later. It's nice to remind people that these factions are still at war. I'm really hoping we actually lose Undercity and see the Alliance try to rebuild Lordaeron (No, UC was not ALWAYS a sewer. It actually was one of the major Human Kingdoms). Have the Fosaken move to Stratholme since the Scourge were pushed back, then have new quests in those areas for the updated situation and a new battleground to reflect the new area of conflict in Tirisfal/Plaguelands. This is also an opportunity to integrate the BC zones (Silvermoon, Ghostlands, Exodar, etc) into the actual continents. With those in the map, then create a new Forsaken starting zone in the yet to be utilized area of the map in between the Ghostlands and the Plaguelands. Give Night Elves that Island off of Feralas and move back to Dire Maul, or somewhere else while they plan a way to counter-attack. Its not like we really need Dire Maul or Stratholme as Dungeons at max level, or really at all anymore with the leveling changes. A player can dream right? I'm just tired of this world feeling so static. I like how phasing technology has allowed them to change the map to reflect the story, they should use it more. BTW, some of y'all really need to leave the Salt Mines every now and again. My goodness. You don't even know how this conflict resolves or how the Night Elves react yet.
i smell fake news
If there is one thing Blizzard has shown, it is that when someone does something really bad, they get their asses handed to them, in bits and pieces, later in that expansion.The Kal´dorei will get their revenge, if they so wish, and a new home or a new tree will be places, if not on top of Teldrassil, then close to it.Atleast, thats my thoughts on the matter.
As a Horde fan who loves drinking Alliance tears I can admit night elves have fallen so low. They had the greatest and largest empire on Azeroth, their female warriors were so fierce even Grom and the orcs had to respect their ferocity in battle. They've saved the world from the Legion twice and apparently caused the extinction of a number of races. Then came Cata, they got their asses handed to them hard in Ashenvale, Azshara, Stonetalon and all over Kalimdor. And needed Varian and Co. to save the day and push back the Horde in Ashenvale. Then you had Varian giving 10,000 year old Tyrande a lesson in patience and strategy in Mists. Then Legion we got Tyrande annoying ass PMSing all over Val'sharah over Malfurion (world's first and most powerful druid) who's whining like a little $%^&* for help lol. Now the only real presence they have left in their ancient homeland of Kalimdor being burned to the ground. They've become the biggest punching bags in Azeroth. It's kinda sad but also $%^&ing hilarious at the same time.
I like this turn of event, but i prefered the previous one. Made more sense.
Blizzard really have %^&*ty writers I will tell you that much.
As improbable as it may be, I still fantasize that the Forsaken acquire a new capital after all this. To be specific, a floating, maneuverable, scourgeforged capital.The Forsaken...appropriating...Naxxramas!Then if by chance they want to make Sylvanas a villain, she can be seated where Kel’Thuzad once was as a raid boss lol.A guy can dream ^_^
Honestly, the story is starting to look really stupid as revisions go on. I mean, the Horde are the bad guys AGAIN, Sylvanas is the new Garrosh, and the Alliance are simply puppets who follow suit. Why this again? This really makes both factions look really bad, and us players as well for following our leaders into this. Why would the Highlord of the Silver Hand support this full-on war after uniting to fight the Burning Legion? Why would a tauren druid, the Archdruid of the Cenarion Circle, support the burning of such an important world tree seedling as is (was) Teldrassil? No, this expansion is not making any sense. If the burning of Teldrassil was ACCIDENTAL, or done by any other person unrelated to the Horde and them blamed on Sylvanas, it would kind of make sense. But such as it is, this really makes Sylvanas nonredeemable, and all Horde players just pawns in her quest for power. It's just wrong. And Alliance gets the short end of the stick as usual. First Pandaria and now this? Please, just change the story before it's released, Blizzard! One Garrosh was enough!
This seems all smoke and mirrors to me. I bet this "discovery" is an attempt to throw us off the real story plot....or at least I hope. I agree with other posters, the plot where a sub-faction of undead frame Sylvanas for war is far more engaging. The previous text was better written....this is trite.
To be frank , the BFA plot makes no sense if it wants to be a continuity to Legion.If it is not a continuity and it just after a time of silence then it will be found in the novel.Either way I will play the game regardless the plot makes no sense and before reading the Illidan novel the Illidan hunt to ressurect made no sense either.P.S: I am tired of this alliance QQ and horde QQ so I'll just sit back , take my nachos with cheese and salsa with a Coke Lime or Pepsi Twist and enjoy the show as I feed on your frustration and rage.
This is a bit disappointing. While this dialogue makes sense, I think the old dialogue gave Sylvanas way more character. I also liked the idea of trying to bring peace by making the ocean into a border more than just “seize the new resources and conquer” idea that blizzard keeps using.
