No explanation needed.
He reminded me a lot of King boomi (earth king) from Avatar, which makes him even more awesome :PHas anyone said the Monkey King yet? I wasn't expecting such a great character in the (Alliance) 5.1 questline, and now I absolutely love his wise-yet-hozen attitude and his rhymes. I know he is a reference to some asian (chinese?) legend, but he is still awesome.
Ormus The Penitent.
I was once a paladin, <name>. Now the Light shuns me, for my sins are too great.
I will aid my allies as best I can, but never again will I wield the powers of darkness.
Ormus, what happened to your eyes?
A self-inflicted wound, friend. I could not bear to look upon a world where I'd committed so many horrors under the Lich King's grasp.
It was my first step towards redemption, and if my sins are unforgivable, then I will attempt to atone for them for the rest of my life.
that penance. Sooooo badasss!
Here I find myself so close to believing that the ends justify the means. But the ruins of the Magisters' Terrace will haunt me forever, reminding me of the fate I tempt with that thought. This is the line I walk, finally knowing that the actions I take in necessity are nonetheless indefensible. Those truths can never be reconciled, but sometimes I can hold them both side by side and almost understand. I might call this revelation profound if I were ignorant enough not to realize that I am only learning what Kael'thas, and Anasterian before him, had also learned in their turns. All we can do is walk the road we are given with such dignity as we can muster, each to our own glory or demise, and pray that there yet remains something of our own hearts when all is said and done. By the Sunwell, I hope that there will remain something of mine.
He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
The Lich King/Arthas. His story is so intriguing and a true story of good vs. evil at the core of humanity.
The greatest dragon to ever grace Azeroth.
Bread lady Ironforge.
I like Thisalee Crow, a druid (or at least closely affiliated with druids) who takes time out from hugging squirrels to kick ass, druids are portrayed as being so wishy-washy, nice to see an exception, i also like Mishka, because she's the first Draenei in the game who isn't a one-quest NPC.
As the "fun NPCs" i hold a special place in my heart for Oralius (The not-quite-sane dwarf in burning steppes), Lunk the pacifist ogre, Mylune the dryad (Cool parody of the tree-hugging theme that's so common for druids and their allies), and the most fun of all is Mistress Nagmara (The succubus barmaid in the BRD bar area), shame she lost her quest, though it was an annoying quest taking you all over the place, but helping a succubus get her love is a pretty funny idea, with her rants about "the pains of love!" ^_^
"Pain... Agony.... My hatred burns through the cavernous deeps. The world heaves with my torment. Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage... But at last... The whole of Azeroth will break... ...And all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings..."
Deserved better, what a bad ass character.
Also, the August Celestials are pretty cool, I think i like Xuen the most.
Malygos is a whimp compared to DW , just sayin.
Malygos could have soloed DW on his own, if he had been there. Kalecgos is the wimp. Also, the Malygos25 encounter was WAY harder when it was current content than DW HC was.
