    Rhonin visits the post office one last time

    So apparently, my Pandaren Monk was special enough to receive a letter from Rhonin, Archmage of Dalaran after his death.

    This raises several questions..

    a.) Was my Panda important enough for Rhonin's ghost to appear, go to the convenience store to buy potions and Fireworks, then mail them off to me?
    b.) How did his ghost get to Dalaran? You can't cast spells while you are dead.
    c.) How did he know my name?

    There are no answers I have been able to come up with, help me out my MMO-Champions.

    It's an automated message courtesy of the Dalaran Postal Department.

    They haven't managed to update it post-mortem

    That's easy. He wrote one letter and made hundreds of thousands of photocopies. In his death will, he entrusted the task of sending all these photocopies to new 80s to his favorite unnamed scribe. Keeping his death a secret.

    It's a boring answer, but I assume your question was whimsical in nature.

    The raptor army mailed it for him. Not that they had to, death is merely an inconvenience for Rhonin Firehair, beloved by elf and man and raptor alike!

These Raptors, Wielding Grenade launchers, firebombed the nearest town to get to a mailbox. Then, sending the mail to loudskies, Rhonins favorite panda bear.
    Fix'd.

    L. Ron Hubbard was publishing books for about a decade after he died. For that matter I see 'new' books by Robert Ludlum coming out all the time as well.

    Ha ha...ghostwriters...

    His death was merely a setback for his letter writing activities.

    rhonin dies in the explosion of theramore, giving his life to save jaina.

    but i am sorry, you have to read the book to get that important twist. the game gives a fuck to tell you that :P

    Northtrend is still in WotLK time, so Rhonin is alive still.

    When they fix this, can they also remove his ridiculously badly written monologue in Dalaran?

    Jaina will replace him with yellow about ulduar.

    Also, Khadgar will probably replace Vereesa on 'The Six', since in tides of war he is a member.

    This. Come on people, we've been over this time and time again. This isn't hard. :/

    We do have one thing to thank Garrosh for.

    OP you went to all the trouble of writing the post then totally forgot he's actually still standing right there in Dalaran? How can that be? D:

    I wouldn't complain, The ghost of Rhonin is more generous than the one you get for reaching 90.
    1 lousy firework ? I'm guessing that's in game austerity for you

    They would have to fire Metzen.

    Remember the alliance quest in the 1st area of Pandaria where you play as the 3 characters as they tell a story ?! When the dwarf discovers the crashed plane with amber kearnan and says "A PLAAAAANE ?!" with a horrible voice acting, I actually imploded.
