Doesn't confirm a thing. Also video is gone.
Although i definitely don't mind a Burning-Legion xpac, for the love of good NO REVAMPS!!!! Outland revamp = sub loss guaranteed.
There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.
I am proud to know that I was the one that originally killed this thread.
They may have plans for them... at the end of the expansion to set up for 2 expansions from now. So we'll see.
I love the connection the Windrunner sisters have and it'd be nice if they communicated more. Very interesting lore.
My vote is on Turalyon and Alleria becoming neutral though; much like Tirion (who fought with Turalyon before he was sentenced for treason), they'd be the "Screw your Horde and Alliance, get your shit together. We've got the Legion to kill!" type, just like Tirion was with Scourge.
When you get right down to it the new Horde and Alliance have no reason to fight each other at all post-Warcraft III, other than people on both sides being idiots.

Beyond the Dark Portal was 8 years after the first war. MoP is 29 years. Assuming time passed at the same rate wherever they are, they're 21 years older. If Turalyon was in his 20s or 30s, he'd be in his 40s or 50s now. Not that old :P

They went with Pandaren because it's the number one most requested new race since Vanilla. Blame the playerbase if you hate them so much.
“Oof!” He stumbled forward, so lost in thought that he hadn’t seen the pair of children until they’d slammed into him.
“Sorry, mister!” the boy cried. The girl gazed up at him with solemn brown eyes. Turalyon smiled and patted her hair as he spoke to the boy.
“With an attack like that you’ll make a fine soldier one day,” he said.
“Oh yes, sir, I hope so, sir! You think all the orcs will be dead before I’m old enough to kill them?”
Turalyon's smile faltered. “I’m sure you’ll be able to serve the Alliance well,” he said, evading the question. Revenge. The fiery need and anger it kindled in the heart had cost Turalyon someone he loved. He would say nothing to foster racial hatred in a child.Turalyon does not fight to destroy the Horde. He fights to uphold justice. And if he saw that the New Horde also fought to uphold justice(as shown by their rallying behind Vol'jin to take down Garrosh and stop his desire to exterminate all races beyond Orcs), he would ally with them in a greater war against the Legion, as old racial hatreds are not something he wants to follow, but instead the pursuit of the greater good.Turalyon felt a shiver run down his spine. “Alleria,” he began, pitching his voice low, “you’re talking genocide.”
The smile that curved her lips was a cruel one. “It is only genocide when those being slain are people. This is nothing more than exterminating vermin.”
He realized with a shock that she honestly believed her words. She really didn’t see the orcs as sentient people. She saw them as abominations, as monsters, as . . . rats. Turalyon knew he had slain his fair share of them--had done so at times with great anger in his heart at what they had done to his people. But this . . . Alleria didn’t want justice. She didn’t want the orcs to pay for the crimes they had committed, she wanted to hurt them. To exterminate an entire race, if she could.
Although this is a year old thread...is it true? Like, was it confirmed Turalyon and Alleria are coming back next expansion? If so...pretty obvious it will be a Burning Legion Expansion.
Of all losses, time is the most irrecuperable for it can never be redeemed
So is Alleria from Alliance? I googled some images and they were all of a Blood Elf.

It could be that next expansion LAST PATCH is something like "Turalyon and Alleria coming back to warn about imminent Burning Legion invasion with Sargeras leading the charge". Or something like that.
If they're neutral it's entirely an ass-pull from Metzen.
He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
I looked up Alleria and Turalyon in Google and came across this thread. It said September, so I thought it was of this year. Again, sorry.
I see Alleria having a strong bias against the Horde like before. Even with the Blood elves on the other side, I think Alleria understands better than anyone that before the Scourge invasion the High elves were jerks to their human allies.
