Feels less like corruption and more like religious ecstasy. Too much of anything, "good" or "bad," tends to make people make terrible decisions. The euphoria derived from any power, no matter the source, will always cause good people to do horrible things. Thats not so much corruption as its just blind devotion to flawed beliefs.
I can't believe what I'm reading.1. People saying that Yrel is an ALLIANCE character and that what is going on AU Draenor is ALLIANCE fault? Da hell? She's on her own there, it's very unlikely she contacted anyone from Alliance. 2. People saying that the LIGHTFORGED are evil %^$%. Seriously? Don't you see a difference between the Lightbound brainwashed by the Naaru and the Lightforged who were empowered by the light *without* becoming fanatics? I think the best example of them being sane is the scene where Illidan kills Xe'ra. Everyone is like "well sh^ts happen, let's get back to killing demons". Even Turalyon accepts that and after talking to Velen moves on without making a big deal of it. I only feel bad for Yrel, she's been my favourite WoD character. And I think that Geya'rah might be a liiiittle surprised when she attempts to fight the Alliance. Badly surprised. =)
It seems like they're using this allied race scenario as a means to quietly liquidate AU-Draenor out of the equation. It's like the MMO version of killing a character off screen in order to wrap up plot holes or an actor change. (I'll always remember Law and Order SVU quickly explaining Stabler away in the first 5 minutes of a new season because Christopher Meloni got fired.)
"As a child, draenei scholars taught me to read and write. I liked them. Respected them.Then the naaru came, and fanaticism took hold.The draenei were reborn--no, they have a different word for it--re-forged in their precious Light.Their belief blinds them, binds them to masters who seek to control the universe as surely as the Legion did.Draenei... eredar... so willing to bend the knee. So prone to corruption."This is really interesting. Touching, ad it makes the story believable like the Maghar are telling it.
