Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? I hate Blizzard Sometimes !!! Why did they killed that poor child. Poor Poor Cloudhoof. I cried Tons of Tears ... Good Title for this thread OP.
War is deception, a game played best from the shadows!
And some people will still claim that MoP is all bright and sunshine instead of "good" dark WarCraft.
And yet... despite having dealt this blow to the Sunwalker, and even hinting that Dezco might have accidentally crushed Cloudhoof himself (o-u-c-h), the ending of the story buttons things up far too easily, too comfortably. It feels as though the existence of his two sons, and the death of one, is cheapened by the fact that they no longer contribute to their father's story -- and that Dezco seems perfectly fine with turning his remaining boy over to a secretive order, giving up all chance of actively rearing and teaching his son in the years to come.
I'm sorry, but they pulled out the baby-killing gun and even floated the idea that his own father was to blame... that by all rights should have destroyed Dezco. "Anguish" doesn't even begin to describe, especially when you consider that he also recently lost his wife, in childbirth. But no, Dez seems strangely placid at the end of the story, as if things were meant to go that way. Wow. It severely cheapens Leza's passing and the existence of his boys, with him being "fairly OK" with losing one to a horrible death and the other to what almost amounts to a cult (albeit a fairly cheery one).
I have the suspicion that the author of this story is not a father himself. If he is, he certainly didn't put himself in Dezco's shoes and imagine how he'd react to losing one child, and surrendering another... on the heels of losing his wife/their mother, in fact.

I say again, wow.

Not everybody reacts to loss in the same way. Some people avoid all showing of it. Maybe he really believes that it was fated to happen this way.
He's not "fairly okay", though. He's definitely in a poor state right now, he just doesn't show it.
As for not getting a mogu smashing revenge mission... maybe he's simply not the kind of person to do such things? It's not like it would serve any purpose. For him it might have been a great loss, but for the Mogu, it was just tortureday.
I thought childred in WoW were immune to all harm.
That's what Shi said.Wh-what are you doing here!? G-go away!
I don't want to see you anymore!
Stay away from me!
It's really hard for me to take Dezco and his story seriously after the eye-rollingly awful quest text. I mean, I play on an RP server and I've seen his exact scenario play out many many times, what with the giving birth to twins and the mother dying and the all-caps emotes ("HNNNNNGH!") I think the Horde story in general since Wrath has suffered greatly from internal consistency problems, which is a main reason it doesn't connect with me.
Oh the Tauren want peace and so they um... joined the Horde? Okay well I'm sure that's working out well. They try to save the child at the shrine of Chi-Ji which... oh, the Horde invaded? No wonder he didn't save the kid. The Tauren don't belong in the Horde, certainly the Horde as it exists now. Pandaren make even less sense.
