Thanks for all the love on this post! Due to the overwhelming response, we went back and rewrote part of our dialogue datamining tool to make character/dialogue associations easier to spot and then added NPC names to all the dialogue in this post. We're going to take another look through the data now and see if we find more fun stuff.
I am actually curious as to how Aman'Thul will enter into this. Highkeeper Ra had removed the last of Aman'Thul's spirit from himself and contained it in some manner. It was later absorbed by Lei Shen when he confronted Ra, and later still absorbed by Wrathion when he ate Lei Shen's heart. For that matter, there's also the question of where is Highkeeper Ra now, since we freed him from his imprisonment.
Added Aluneth, Thalkiel, more Alleria, more Magni, and Horde Varimthrias. Squishei will do another round of edits now.
Thanks for the new parse on dialogues! Interestingly, the part about Alleria and the void...Her teacher seems to be an Ethereal, judging from how he call us "fleshling". Maybe there are more than just humans and draenei in the Army of Light after all.
Never forget that ugly Varian saying "..we will end you!" in middle of my Orgrimmar! MY DAMN ORGRIMMAR! Blizz is so biased...
When Blizzard starts retconning their own lorebook, that they released not even two years ago, that's when you know nothing is safe. The story of WoW follows the rule of cool, and nothing else. Sad times.
for now at least.
Aside from the huge lorebombs and probably the end of the Legion....for now...Varimathras basicly spoiled the next expansion ? With both Sylvanas and Jaina implicated to be traitors ...just as we ALL PREDICTED ?
Nobody is saying anything about or planet being blown up?Archmage Khadgar: It is good to see you again, my friends. When I couldn't find you after the devastation of Draenor, I wasn't sure what to think. High Exarch Turalyon: We feared for you as well, Khadgar. But I think part of me knew it would take more than the explosion of a planet to slow you down.
When dealing with gods/demiurges/etc, death is a fuzzy, wibblywobbly affair
Dunno about you folks, but a "shattered mask" and a "she" that took our throne of "hides and bones", gives me only one answer. The shattered mask on the Forsaken Insignia, the one and only Sylvannas that took the position of Warchief, the position we surrendered, because Vol'jin passed it to her. We did not contest it, because we always need a Warchief, and we respected that Vol'jin saw the "Loa" showing him who to take the mantle of Warchief. So my money is on Sylvannas being the one Varimathras speaks, seeing as Varimathras would know of her plans, since he served her for some time. He would know what she plots.
Possibly another undead takes the mantle of leader? Perhaps Nathanos realizes that following Sylvannas is not a good thing. That's a bit of a stretch, but i dont see blizzard screwing every undead player over.
On Illidan being the Jailor of the Burning Legion:Bolvar,the Lich King of the Frozen Throne, Jailor of the Damned and Illidan, as the Antorus,Burning Throne Jailor of the Burning Legion.I can see "to be continued".. In the future where these two major lore characters will be put up front after we deal with the Black Empire - Qiraji, Klaxxi and Nerubians and a possible fourth insectoid or perhaps crustacean race followers of the depths of the abyss Old god all reunited in obediencd to the Old Gods as we progress in the finale of the Old God expansion, the highly plausible return of C'Thun, Yrsaj, Yogg and N'zoth's forces combined and afterwards the Void Lords.FYI It was Sargeras's bidding why the Lich King was personified and why Illidan became who he is, the 1st ever Demon Hunter, the then Lord of the Illidari and the jailor of the burning throne.On Argus World souls and the Pantheon:The Pantheon are world souls and as a soul it needs a body, an avatar. The dragon aspects are of of them apart from the titan forged in Azeroth. Eonar retrieved her soul and that's why we got her encounter when Ysera died. Argus world soul has been released when the planet got cleaved. And Sargeras will be seen in the future definitely when we truly see that after all he is on our side and that his plan of the Burning Legion, the Bruning Crusade was after all to prepare the Army of Light with Illidan as his Avatar.
