yay! dreamwalker is back!
I am so overjoyed that Ysera is back! :D I literally cheered at the new cinematic, YAY! :D <3 However, I don't know if anyone else has this bug, but for me the cinematic just doesn't play. The game automatically skips it, and the quest progresses as if the cinematic played. (For the record, nope I do not have AAP on, no addon that would skip a cinematic.) I watched the cinematic here on WoWhead instead.
I only read the title and I won't read the article from fear of spoilers but I'm glad I haven't gotten their yet so this is good to know.
Thanks for posting this! It was a little strange to bring her seed and then suddenly there was a dragon~ This context is great thanks for posting it
glad this was posted with no spoiler warning on day 2...
Another retconn. Great. What a surprise , I am totally surprised. The dragonflights have nothing to do with Elune and by nothing I really mean nothing. Each dragonflight was blessed by the Titankeepers with powers from their respective titans. Alexstrasza got her powers from Eonar to watch over life - Alexstrasza is the Aspect of Life , Eonar also blessed her little sister Ysera. Ysera is aspect of nothing she is "the Dreamer" she watches over the Emerald Dream.The ONLY connection between Ysera and Elune is her soul being taken/saved and sent to Ardenweald by Elune. That's it. It is not her creation , it is not her matron. Winterqueen calls her the pet of her sister because she doesnt know who created the Dragonflights. Elune is being hinted to be a being of Light and Void.
If Elune is the Winter Queen's sister then Elune is an eternal one. Possible character in another patch/expansion/just lore referance. Or something opposite of the realm of death, there is a realm of living siding with the Light? Thus both same cosmic entity and "sister/brother" in a sense. Working together yet opposite - but not directly opposite of the different orders of the WoW Universe. (death, life, light, shadow, order and disorder).
I just played through this today and it was very odd to just have Ysera pop up. But that explains why it felt so off :D Glad I can catch up on what I missed here.
I JUST finished this zone and also thought it was weirdly anticlimactic. Thanks for this! <3
Can we all just agree that Blizzard did absolute #$%^ job once again with lore and the sister might be either elune or eonar at this point, cause lets be real, the people in charge of lore in blizzard dont think 1 month backwards to make sure it all makes sense.
Ok, We were sad about her loss, but we needed to revive her later, is it a paradox between Brian Griffin or Kenny?
yeah i was pretty damn confused when Ysera just gets revived all of a sudden without any dialogues or interactions.
Connections between Elune and the Dream have been made before. Ysera died corrupted by a fragment of Elune, and then her soul was purified by Elune. Ysera’s inner circle are largely Elune’s chosen ones (Tyrande, Cenarius, Malfurion). Calling Ysera Elune’s pet would make far more sense than Eonar’s. Eonar’s child would make more sense than pet for Ysera. Finally, the way that Ysera’s eyes glowed matched The Winter Queen’s and Tyrande’s when she channeled Elune’s Light. My guess is that Elune is part of the Life Pantheon with her sister as a mirror on Death. The Titans are of Order, so that parallel would not work either.
"Do you have a sister, mortal? You are certainly as vexing as mine."This is one of her annoyed poke line. Not that it gives more clarity as to who her sister is, but it is interesting how her sister is a key part of this dialogue.
To me everything smells that the winter queen sister(s) are Ysera and Alexstrasza. It would be a great lead up to a Dragon Isles expansion.
