For me, the faction war between the Alliance and the Horde is petty. I don't see any need for one faction trying to kill off the other. Yes, this game IS called World of WARcraft. I understand that. But the 'war' in Warcraft doesn't necessarily mean war between the Alliance and the Horde. Yes, both sides have done wrong to each other. But that doesn't mean they can't try to make amends and attempt peace. There are threats to the world that are more important than a simple faction war. I do also, however, understand the idea of conflict between them. It was the original concept behind the original Warcraft RTS game, after all (and no, I never played the RTS games).ANYWAY, I am super excited for this book, and I hope I can get a copy. This 'terrible discovery' seems like it's going to be the true battle for Azeroth, not the simple faction war that portrayed in the cinematic. I'm really excited to see where the story goes in this expansion.
this is not good if they are delaying on book I wonder what will be expansion -.-
They realized they needed to destroy Teldrassil for some reason before something awful happened. Anduin couldn't let that happen because he needed to protect the home of a people in the Alliance and wanted to find an alternative to destroying it. Sylvanas is more pragmatic and would argue timing is an issue with whatever was happening and decided to take matters into her own hands. Anduin realizes she may have helped avoid a terrible fate for the entire planet, but still must pay for the destruction of the world tree, as well as many innocent lives. He struggles trying to understand what the right thing is to do, juggling between what his father would say, what his surrogate father, Genn, would say, and what he feels to be right. Sylvanas feels victimized for doing what protected the highest amount of people, and believes Anduin at first doesn't have what it takes to play the big leagues in the dangerous world she's had to rule in for three decades. When Anduin turns the field of battle on her city, that look in her eyes says that maybe Anduin has what it takes, after all, but that a slight increase in respect for him does not mean she won't protect her own people.Wild, unsupported guess: Teldrassil's roots are found to be digging into the grave, remains, or prison of x-y-z Old God, much like the first world trees did in Chronicle II creating the Emerald Nightmare. To prevent the unthinkable from happening, the unthinkable must be achieved or executed.
From Illidan, the Legion Prequel to Legion launch was around 4-5 months. However Tides of War was 1 month. Arthas was 7 months. So it is really hard to say if the book has any indication on when the Xpack will drop, other than it is for sure after June 12th. My guess is late July early August. Although I find it hard to fathom a year of Antorus after the disaster a year of Dragon Soul was, so maybe it will be before. Who knows.
Honestly, I think it is time for new factions. At this point many PCs and NPC's have strong cross-factional sympathies and they see their allies doing things that work against their own interests.Let's shake $%^& up:Alliance of Light: Manduin and The Artist formerly known as Prophet"Old Alliance" lead by Genn "F'U, I got Mine" Greymane"The Grand Old Horde" lead by some up-and comer orc all the elder's can't stand. Lot's of warlocks and fuzzy economics in this crowd."The 'I'm too old for this crap again' Horde" led by Saurfang and made of everyone that knows not to stand in his cleave. Free fishing pole with membership.and my fave, the "Get Off My Lawn Confederation" lead by some elemental or loa or ancient, who are pretty much anti everybody.
