Bravo another excellent content creator.
Please, please i dont want to see these people again. I came here at chrome's recomandation ... why does chrome send here me to see this? And this site is such a good source of information why mess it up with .. these?
ROFL at the people who think opinion-based videos are "telling them what to think".If you seriously think that, then your own critical thinking faculties must be seriously lacking if you're unable to form or maintain a cogent thought of your own in your own head after watching them.Ermahgerd, you whiners are amazing.
The forums embraced this partnering of Taliesin and Evitel with wowhead with a warm smile, while looking forward to the entertaining and informative content they will share with the community.....No, it was a s***show, obviously.I really love that wowhead is partnering with Taliesin and Evitel! Keep up the good work!Much love from a loyal fan.Edit: not anymore since tali salting on goldboii
Yay, I like them very much. They have a very good and interesting view of things. Glad to see them here.
I have to say that much of the criticism of this video hasn't been very thoughtful or deep. One of the problems with putting one's self out on a public medium has to be personal criticism. I am very impressed with the use of Welsh heroic names like Taliesen, Myfanwy, etc. Perhaps they who use them are simply Welsh but I suspect a deeper connection to Welsh and Celtic Lore. Well done guys! As a person who's had a full beard for over 40 years I am more than done with the sgabby, stubbly look on movie stars, rock stars, wanna-be movie stars, wanna-be rock stars and has-beens of all varieties. Taliesin, your beard looks like you just ate a handful of charcoal bricquettes the way Cookie Monster devours cookies. Either grow the beard or shave it or wash your face. That said his exposition of "morally grey" was brilliant and the review of Sylvanus' history is equally good. Evitel, when you say that no one is interested in long exposition of the inner dialogue of conflicted characters, you're wrong. It's why for 400 years people have read and acted Hamlet and a good deal of the rest of Shakespeare (props for showing Olivier's Hamlet contemplating Yorick's skull) and why people still read Tristram Shandy, Moby-%^&*, War and Peace, The Man Without Qualities and a raft of the rest of the world's great literature. That said I doubt that more than a handful of WoW players expect a book in their Collector's Edition box to be great literature. Fleshing out the inner lives of characters is not a bad thing. You are correct, Evitel, in saying it's not everyone's thing.High Overlord Saurfang is rising to become one of the true tragic figures not just of WoW but he may make it to literature. Everyone I ever raided with always moaned and groaned over the long lead in to the fight against Deathbringer Dranosh Saurfang to open the doors to Icecrown Citadel's Upper Spire. The son that old Saurfang sent to Garadar, fallen at the Wrath Gate and now raised to fight his father is the stuff of high tragedy. The weeping old man with his son, twice dead, in his arms recalled in the Old Warrior video gets me every time and no less in the new video. Tragedy, as Taliesin points out (more props for referencing Orson Welles in Citizen Kane and Gregory Peck in John Houston's film of Moby-$%^&) stems from good people making bad decisions and then suffering the consequences. Saurfang makes what I consider the bad decision to continue to fight for The Horde though he knows it is in the wrong.Once again, Taliesin, (he might live up to the poetic heights of that name yet but the beard...come on!) points out that Blizzard is putting us all, Horde and Alliance, in the morally questionable position of fighting for our faction when our faction may not deserve our efforts. Then he goes where the cinematic (let's call it that now because it deserves more than just video) ought to take us and recites the introduction to dawn before Agincourt from Henry V and Taliesin has me (still...lose the damned stubble) as he narrates Saurfang finding a cause and a surrogate son on the field before Lordaeron. Vladimir Nabokov wrote that we know that we are in the presence of the sublime when the small hairs at the backs of our necks stand up. That happened to me decades ago when I first saw Picasso's Guernica in person. Both the cinematic and Taliesin's narration also did that for me. Just let the beard grow, o.k?I'm still conflicted. I still hope that someone at Blizzard is reading Robert Graves' The White Goddess for a blueprint to the development of the 3 Windrunner sisters. (Hint: Taliesin, The Battle of the Trees section is a great source but Graves' work on the Triple Goddess would deepen and develop the sisters' relationship in to a tentative reconciliation beneficial to Azeroth as a whole.)All in all, good work and thank you. Let us stand before the walls of Lordaeron:This story shall the good man teach is son,And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remember'd;We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day who sheds his blood with meShall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition:
Taliesin and Evitel, Nixxiom, Nobbel, MadSeasonShow, BellularThe holy 5 youtubers and now one more here :3
Do you really think a video containing word *!@#show and what seems like an image of a baby with $%^& smeared all over its room has any kind of class worthy to be on the best wow site?
Not sure where my last comment went, I'm guessing it didn't get approved. Basically, I don't want to whine about the subject, I just feel that if you're going to get a YouTube partnership thing going with someone, it might be better to choose a YouTuber that is .... how do I put this without offending ANYONE.... It might be better to choose a YouTuber with more content and less fluff. Someone who gets to the point and STILL manages to make it fun/enjoyable, rather than someone who makes it fun for 30 minutes, with 2 minutes of actual content. I know reading through the comments I will get called out on it, but, professionally rather than personally, you might want a creator that can keep a video under 10 minutes without constantly being silly. I've tried to give the creators the benefit of the doubt and have been trying to watch them for a long time, to add some more depth to my go-to's for Warcraft. But, out of the last videos I watched, the only thing I can remember is the 2 of them telling everyone they're getting married, greenscreening balloon rides, and riding on pretend horses. Personally, I have nothing against them, they're probably both very nice people, and seem to love Warcraft. I just don't think they're maybe the right people to be giving weekly news updates across a broad spectrum of people.
I like them very much they give an inside to the story-line and are funny too , good choice they deserve it :D
