    What abilities/zones/items/etc. would you want to see in a Warcraft movie?

    With this Warcraft movie supposedly moving ahead under Duncan Jones I was thinking about things I would like to see. I'm not really talking about specific characters, especially since they seem to be aiming for a unique story line within the Warcraft universe. Other than that, though, what sorts of Warcraft stuff are you hoping to see translated to epic big screen live action CGI goodness? They don't necessarily have to appeal to broad audiences, this is strictly for Warcraft enthusiasts who would appreciate the homages. For example, you might want to see Ashbringer referenced, even though it would be nothing more than a 'cool sword' that is quickly overlooked by unfamiliar viewers.

    A few personal wishes:
    - Bladestorm. An epic warrior character, fully geared in armor and a massive greatsword, winds up with ferocious anger and swings around and around at his enemies.
    - Chain Lightning
    - Hyacinth Mccaw. Just sitting on someone's shoulder or something, as a funny little Easter egg.
    - Ice Block. This could come across as dorky to some of the more action-oriented viewers, but I think it'd be a riot to see a mage-inspired character hide in an ice block just in time to deny a brutal swing from some massive axe.

    There's others, too, like Tree of Life, maybe Warglaives if the reference made sense, maybe one of the cooler mounts. What do you guys think?

    Obviously someone at some point will have to get polymorphed or it just isn't Warcraft.

    But I'm not hoping for anything specific, just praying to god it isn't absolutely awful. Like... every video game movie ever.

    Combat that plays out like actual combat, and not wow pvp.

    Alt F4 since I personally feel the movie is a terrible idea.
    I've seen what's over the mountain, and you don't have anything to be dancing about.

    My main right now is a balance druid, but man I hope there isn't a single moonkin in this movie.

    I would like to see some shapeshifting into bear/cat/flight forms, though.

    The movie should take place before Night Elves were even encountered imo.

    The Side of Orcs that is not all RRAAARRGH BLOOD AND THUNDER.

    I want to see the stern, and stoic side to Orcs, and the interesting culture they have.

    more like if someone is attacking with a sword and gets their swings parried, dodged and countered its flowing naturally, not "I use this ability to parry your attack, the cast shield block to block the next incoming melee attack" etc. Skills and abilities are not spells cast, just a combat style.

    Would love to see Necrotic Strike, because I cannot imagine how it would work out. "Hey, I'll stab you, your flesh decays and will take longer to heal" ? Same for Colossus Smash, do you undress your enemy?

    On a serious note: Remorseless Winter, Alter Time, Spirit Shell, Demonology Warlocks in general (the idea of a being morphing into a demology form with a huge-ass 2 2h swords/axes dualwielding demon is too good), Druids and shapeshifting, Enhancer Shaman with wolves/shifting into his ghost wolf before jumping on an enemy.

    I think the only place I would really want to see is Northrend (including Dalaran.) Everything else wouldn't matter to me.

    A few cool abilities I would like to see...

    -Mind control
    -Typhoon
    -Blink
    -Army of the Dead
    -Mirror Image

    I am with Constellation on this one. If combat played out ANYTHING like the game nobody will watch it. Face it combat in wow is rather boring when you compare it to say lord of the rings.
