This whole sword situation is blown and overmilked way out of proportion. Who the hell cares.
I feel like the sword could play a major role in the 'light vs void' expansion that is to come in the future. I can imagine Silithus / AhnQiraj / the sword being the epicenter of the 'shadow' and QuelThalas/Scarlet Crusade lands being the epicenter of the 'light' with the fights raging all across Azeroth.
i still dk which domain its connected to tbfvoid not reallyfel or arcane? sargy is both in a wayprobably fel
Forget the sword, when are we going to shoot the giant canon in azshara?
Has more the vibe off: "We didn't think we needed to do more with it but rest assured we're trying to come up with something for the future after seeing all the questions".
The topic is funny as a dismissive joke, but when people are legitimately asking "why haven't we removed it yet, I die inside. It's a sword that is larger than the majority of most of Azeroth's cities that is god-knows how dead into the surface of that planet. OF COURSE IT'S STILL THERE! What the hell are people wanting here? Another story breaking macguffin to make the universe's largest fel artifact to suddenly disappear? A cosmic scaled being is needed to remove it. Shocking how the devlopers aren't revealing a future plotpoint for a cosmic plot that players have said continuously that are burnt out by.
"we remember that the sword is there and there will be a story to tell about it and what effects it continues to have upon the world" is a fancy way of saying "Soon™" XD
Either one of two ways that they're gonna do this. Either this is gonna turn into a Sword of Damocles plotpoint, where the Sword is just sitting there waiting until something massive pulls it out and uses it against us while we were busy being adventurers and not caring about said Sword....Or this will turn into a Chekov's Gun sort of thing where it won't factor into anything at all and is just there to make us antsy or give us fake fear.
I think it’s clear they have NO Fn IDEA what they’re going to do with the sword, if anything, so they’re making these vague answers that constantly contradict each other. Then they say later they’re just kidding.
Sargeras won't remain Illidan's training dummy forever. The red star will go out from the sky, and that'll probably be when we revisit the sword.
Oh my god, it's obviously going to be the weapon of Azeroth when she is born.Even then, whats the point of pulling it out when we literally have robots in Azeroths "command center" telling us the sword is no longer a threat?Why remove it? How do you remove it?
Azeroth will finally awaken and pull the sword out of the planet to use it as her weapon against some other big threat...also she is probably annoyed that we mortals haven't done anything about, having a sword stuck in your side still hurts even if it is de-powered
People keep forgetting how big the sword is. We can't ask the titans to get it off because every time they take something from Azeroth, the planet suffers (Remove Old God, big gaping hole that they fill with magic. Remove tantrum titan, sword stabs the planet. Who else is big enough?I know! Lets resurrect Galakrond and ask it to remove the sword! The heroes of Azeroth can then kill him and clean all the death and decay that results from that.
Don't worry. After 'Dragonflight' we'll get another expansion centered around the cosmic forces and we'll get an explation how to get rid of the sword, kinda.World of WarCraft: Battle for the Legion of Azeroth's Shadowy Boogaloo XIV or something like that.
