    Garona does have a unique skin though, a unique armor skin and a unique voice.

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    "Flawless character" etc. Do you hate Superman too? And if you are religious, do you hate god? Did you hate Goku from DBZ? Bit weird... just because he is powerful
    1 - yes, I hate superman. boring as hell. but at least he has a weakness.
    2 - I'm an atheist.
    3 - goku was stupid as hell and injections would make him soil his pants. besides, his enemies always started the saga many times stronger than he, and he had to work hard to surpass them. he was far from flawless.
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    Not really the only "unique" she have is the voice and the blue marks on her arms, also her armor is a rouge tier used in Wrath of the Lich King

    Well thats your opinion and I am fine with that. I didn't take into account that WCIII ended that way. Regardless I don't mind him. I am not saying we need him, but as there were Guardians before, I don't mind having one again. And I did like Thrall before... when he was Warchief. Now he is a bit messiah-like... too spiritual for my taste. And I don't have that feeling with Me'dan. This opinion of mine might change ofcourse, if he is put like that ingame...

Of course I'd be happy of Med'an died happily ony to get rid if the Guardian nonsense unless something truly dire came again.

    Sprinkling new gimmicks onto an already gimmicky character with gimmicky parents and a gimmicky backstory usually leaves barely any space for actual character development and depth, because well.. imagine a bus full of little "gimmicks", with "developments trying to cram themselves into a filled bus". Yeah.. no.


    And I also despise Superman because he's the embodiment of the typical lack of originality you see every day, but for some reason - he's still praised, despite being dull.


    Development is also when a character struggles to reach his goals. When you're an almighty deity that can run ten times the speed of light, then what is there left to reach? It makes for a very dull, repetitive character that reeks of a man, emasculated by his marriage, trying to compensate.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    Which is EXACTLY the problem with DBZ as well, which is an endless loop of incredibly strong bad guys turning up, only for the heroes finally beating them by becoming EVEN STRONGER, which is inevitably followed by EVEN EVEN STRONGER bad guys turning up ad inifinitum. The whole idea of 'Super Saiyan times x' makes this laughably obvious.


    Even Greek heroes like Hercules would inevitably meet some kind of tragic end.

    Why does everyone hate him, may I ask?
    By Blizzard Entertainment:
    Part of the reason is that Battlegrounds are like ducks.

    Implemented arbitrarily into the comic series with a nearly limitless array of Anime-style powers in a complete disregard of the Warcraft-series major themes.
