Hello again and again.
So, Maiev is still my Favorite character! When I first played Warcraft TFT, where Maiev was introduced in game I thought that she was one of the epic characters. She was determined and skilled a True leader of her group! (I preferred her to malfurion and even Illidan). The one thing she did "bad" in that game was to let Tyrande die in river, and she would have if not Illidan! And I cant judge her in that (Ill explain that later).
I dont understand Why blizzard made her so EVIL, and Villainous character!
She is veteran of War of the Ancients though she was very young and only apprentice Priestess of Elune. She was talented and skilled ! I say that she was ambitious for wanting to be High Priestess and after Tyrandes disappearing she was elected ! And when Tyrande returned she became again High Priestess! The Wilhammer issue was same between Kuldran and Falstad, but the result was opposite - Kuldran who was leader of clan in Falstads absence remained to be leader of the clan! No fair Blizz! That was the 1st disappointment in Maievs life.
Then mad Illidan tried to create 2nd Well of Eternity. Tt was a death penalty for ordinary Night Elf, but he wasnt killed. Why ? Because he was Malfuriones Twin brother and Mal couldnt kill him but decided enslave him for eternity. Maiev was against it and demanded that illidan must be killed! No one listened to her and it was a GRAVE mistake to let her be Illidan 's personal Warden for 10 millenia ! Even Malfurion and Tyrande now "regret" this ! And after 10 000 years Tyrande just came and killed all the Watchers to free the Illidan. Was all this imprisonment in vain? She did no less Evil to her people ! And as I said I cant judge Maiev for leaving her alone to be drawn it the river!
Of course Illidan would be her main target, to track him and to slay him, He was the reason why she suffered for 10 millenia ! And after killing Illidan she became More EVIL ?? Why ? When she returned to Darnasuss that meant that she once again reunited with her kind ! There was no need to make her HATE itself ! When I read Wolfheart I learned that she HATED everyone : Highborne , Malfurion , Tyrande, and whole Alliance ! That was too much !
And when Illidan comes back in near future I am sure that Maiev will be MAJOR villain ! I am sure she will be killed by us in Scenario/dungeon or even in Raid as one of the bosses (not the last boss for sure she is not that strong).
Blizzard just DESTROYED one epic character !
