    Lore Interview with Dave Kosak

    Sure, learning about raid mechanics and new dailies is great for some people, but the only thing that matters to me is the story.
    Let's get super nerdy with Dave Kosak, Lead Quest designer, and ask him the important questions :P

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osB0_0G5N8g

    Topics include:

    5.4:
    Are you still happy with announcing Garrosh's defeat as early as you did?
    Metzen mentioned at launch that this expansion was the build up to the war - is this still the case and bigger conflict is coming? Or is this the actual war now?
    Alliance fist pump moment - it was promised - what is it?
    What is the moment (in your mind) when Garrosh "becomes a bad guy", seems like he just did all the sudden?
    What important orcs are left now since most are dead? Will we see any of them return (wink wink)?
    Why leave Sylvannas out of the main story line? Is it like Rhonin in Cata? Just couldn't fit him in?
    Why are the Klaxxi joining Garrosh?

    Random:
    Which came first? Old Gods or Titans?
    Where is Dalaran? where is it going?
    What are the Naaru up to?
    And Draenei - they getting some story soon?
    Will we ever seen the Dragon Aspects again?
    Is there anything below Tirisfal? (This is the final answer on this question guys)
    Where are the following people? Will we see them soon?
    Gallywix?
    Rexxar?
    Me'dan?
    Magatha Grimtotem?
    Bolvar?
    Alleria and Turalyon?

    hopefully dead in a ditch somewhere...

    They should ask him about Darius Crowley instead, and what plans there are to give Worgen more role in the game.

    Super awesome to hear you were able to get this done.

    Snake Tail.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Seems like Kosak has more or less confirmed my belief that a) Garrosh was a sociopath and b) he broke under the stress of leadership.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    So he's saying we should consider the Kor'kron in the Undercity to have been canonically purged by 5.4. Would've made a great scenario. Alas...

    Also, he mentions that the Alliance does indeed "allow" the Horde to elect a Warchief that "they can work with" as opposed to the current berserking marauder.

    Saying that the "Old Gods or Titans came first" will eventually be answered in-game makes me think they have planned quite alot for the future.

    Thanks for making the interview.

    I guess thats something.

    I just wish they will show more than "suddenly no orcs". Like corpses displayed as warning or new orc-shaped bone constructs.
    The common man is like a worm in the gut of a corpse, trapped inside a prison of cold flesh, helpless and uncaring, unaware even of the inevitability of its own doom.

    Well, he meets all the red flags for antisocial personality disorder (the current, official term for Sociopathy used by the medical community):

    1. failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest;
    2. deception, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure;
    3. impulsivity or failure to plan ahead;
    4. irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults;
    5. reckless disregard for safety of self or others;
    6. consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations;
    7. lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another.

    edit: Worth noting that Garrosh is likely a high-functioning sociopath, one who is able to resist impulsive urges and can hide their disorder far better than a low-functioning sociopath.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    He spent most of the interview talking in circles and explaining why he couldn't answer anything. :p

    Nice to know that Tirisfal is just an "eh, it sounded creepy" thing they haven't figured out yet, though.

    Sad to hear about the Tirisfal part and actually using it in the future would be like "Hey, look what we pulled out of our asses" and this is what basically ends the "below Tirisfal" thing.

    And interesting to hear about the Alliance fist pump moment discussion! Way to shut up the crying Horde-bias faction.

    It still won't be enough. There are already countless threads that devolve into petty arguments. It looks like there is no quieting that faction until there is no more Horde. It's not equality they want, it's supremacy.

    They've mentioned this king of thing before too. Many times they need to pad out the world with things to make it interesting... example: the snake tail I bugged them about. They were like "look, it looked cool so we did it".
    Not a great answer and definitely not a lore one, but it is an answer.
