    Benedictus

    Why did they Corrupted Benedictus ? In many Lore and Novels he felt so much good person and reliable one. Why blizz picks a random VERY good character and Corrupts him?
    That is not fair.

    Thats the way most WoW characters go. Corrupted - Insane - Kidnapped. You get to choose one.

    Yes a guy who behaves good can't be evil at heart...

    It may be a shame, but wasn't all that bad, and certainly not unfair.
    My youtube can be found at Gcsmith12 for those who are interested.

    Many good games are coming in 2012, Im glad to be a gamer

    That is usually the last step, but my guess is he was chosen, because he was influential and such a good character, he showed once more, that even the most noble people can fall from grace etc.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    It COULD have been a great story. But they scrapped the original version and instead of Varian or Stormwind confronting him after finding out about his evil, Thrall gets to do it because whynot.

    Who knows why they had to shove everything in Thralls direction, it became really annoying over time, not as annoying as the stuff in Northrend but it came close. They waste so much potential with the Alliance and I simply don't get why.

    His Character could be Developed in good way. They corrupted him for one f*cking Novel and a Dungeon.

    They did it before, with far more important characters, like Kael for example.

    You answered your own question. I always believed Blizzard did just that to shock players. Even a good and faithful man can be corrupted, that's the message.
    Personally i hated it. They shouldn't have killed him. WE shouldn't have killed him.

    Deathwing took Stormwind's archbishop and he brought him down to their level. It wasn't hard. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!

    yeah, it really seems to be how they always go. Crazy... I don't get it. But he was a good man for awhile just old and senile now

    I thought the point was he has always been corrupted and deceived us all with his apparent goodness. Considering the Twilight Cult has existed for many many years now.

    And they haven't even touched upon how his betrayal has affected the spiritual life of the Church.

    Yeas I know they did it to My Favorite Character Maiev, but the point is that you are not allowed to Love Character because you never know in what he will turn into. Benedictus was good character, which couldnt be said about Kael'thas or Maiev. He was kind, warm person his life dedicated to Holy light and it seemed Light blessed him with his kindness after time. And they just took it and *smash* destroyed him. Wierdooo .

    You should only love character who THEY (blizz) Love like Thrall Varian etc. others are just garbage and sooner or later will become mad and corrupted.

    Yes Totally Agree with you. Clap.

    I still think it's not OOC for Maiev, who was arguably unhinged and definately unhealthily obsessed, doing what she did in Wolfheart. She hated Tyrande, and even lied about her dying, due to freeing Illidan. I can see her seeing the Highborne as filth and trying to kill them rather than allow them to contaminate NElf society again.

    Bennedictus, we only get one line on his transition, his dying quote, I looked into the eyes of the dragon and despaired. There could have been a good story here. They could have just elaborated a little more, could have gone with the original confrontation with Varian, and actually show his betrayal having an impact on Stormwind's religious life, but instead all he does in game is give Staghelm a prophecy that Thrall will stand in Deathwing's way, and then show up for us to fight as a boss.

    If I remember correctly but I could be dreaming one of the story devs said on twitter that they wish they had given his corruption more focus.unfortunatEly I cannot for the life of me remember who may have said that.

    I remember in Cataclysm beta Grand Magister Rommath was supposed to join the Twilight's Hammer as well. They even had audio for it. WTF ever happened to that?

    They had photo's of him doing really nasty (really really nasty) things with anduin. So pretty much simple blackmail.
