    WoW should stop focusing on old Warcraft RTS lore (which it's almost out of anyway) and start branching off into new lore, which you seem to dislike the very thought of new lore.
    Lolwhat? No we didnt. WoW has a billion stories that are infinitely better than condescending pandas telling us we need to "slow doowwwwnn".

    They have barely even touched the surface in WoW when it comes to the lore.

    What is there really left for expansions in WoW? We have Burning Legion, Azshara, Old Gods, and Emerald Dream. There is nothing else besides creating new lore.
    You fucking what mate?

    Shows quite well, with them getting their asses handed to them all the time, and succumbing to the Sha all over the place.

    Really? A billion stories? A billion stories that players who are not lorejunkies would recognise or even remotely care about without almost an entire expantion worth of lore and backstory to build them up. Kind of like what they did with pandaria, no?

    I mean, I challenge you to name 10...no, lets make it easy, 5 things that blizzard could use as "new" directions to take the lore that have not already been set up for a long time, or are not a "just a setback" villian return.

    Btw, that means you dont get to do any of the following
    - Azshara (or any of the content surrounding her stuff) since it is pretty much a given that an expantion dealing with her is coming
    - bring back Illidan, no matter how much fanboy wank he has going for him, He is dead...the end.
    - Emerald Nightmare, since blizzard wrapped up that lore in one of their novels
    - The legion (see Azshara)

    So go ahead. Expound on the vast untouched goldmines of lore that the WoW team has somehow forgotten. Tell me about all those great villians just waiting in the wings. Cause I would love to know exactly what you think blizzard could build an expantion around that wouldnt require huge amounts of NEW lore pulled out of their asses just to back it up. I mean, hell, Blizz made an entire expantion based around Deathwing and the vast majority of players who are not heavily into lore had no freaking clue who he even was.....

    I mean, other then what the heck Alleria / Turalion have been up to, what the deal with Zul is, and what exactly is on the "other" side of azeroth, there are very few "fresh" unexplored lore angles for blizzard work with.

    If there is one thing everyone should take away from this thread, it's that Thrall's new name is Orc Jesus.

    What I don't get about mop is how it goes from "bringing the war back to warcraft" to "let's be frenemies"

    Look man, I know Cataclysm sucked, but we can't ignore that it happened.

    The lesson of MoP isn't that we should be peaceful and cooperative. It's about the consequences to our actions.

    Not to mention Thrall's peace was because the Orcs, at the time, couldn't contend with the full might of the Alliance if they went to war with Theramore.

    I don't know if Blizzard is being lazy or if they're trying to get the point across to World of Warcraft players who never played Warcraft III.
    Likely has to do with people who were claiming WoW is too peaceful. Blizz wanted to show everyone what war is, and therefor why the Horde and Alliance should never again come to all out war.

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

    I don't disagree with you, OP, I'm just not entirely sure what you're trying to get at...

    Oh really?

    So did Thrall made a pact with Jaina because he was out of Orcish tail? Did Jaina murder her own father because of daddy issues?

    The entire Orc campaign was just about mindless slaughter of Orcs vs Humans am I right? And on countless instances before pandaria, Thrall didn't try to maintain relative peace between the Alliance and the Horde?

    Noooooo, of course he didn't, we needed pandaren (OBVIOUSLY!) to show us the meaning of peace.
    what is this OP even going on about?
    whom is he responding to?

    OT: I love the Pandaren, I love the new lore, WOW was never better. I'm rather more afraid of the next expansion that goes back to old gods and faceless story... sigh... at least I'll have a new island to explore before it all ends.

    A couple million people will disagree with that statement, and if you don't like the new expansion, you can join them, or run around in circles...no wait, stroll around in circles in pandaria, because you need to slooooooow dooooown or some shit.

    That's pretty much the psychological representation of Thrall throughout the WC3 campaign.
