    if there was never any fan input 90% of all stories and characters in fiction would be radically different.

    just because they have final say doesnt mean they are always right, even blizzard admits this from time to time, for one reason or another even they cant do the story how they want because of the medium or time constraints or because they couldnt think of something right at that moment.

    if blizzard could do a redo alot of things would be different, but because in the majority of cases they cant hit reset there are some things blizzard has to live with because you cant go back.

    tldr: not even blizzard knows or has the story where they want it to be all the time so stop being such a jerk

    i want to see illidan meet wrathion, since wrathion is pretty much the new illidan it would be nice to see how the two anti heroes react to eachother, maybe they would even work together, or maybe wrathion would think he was stupid for essentially using himself as a guinea pig and being to impulsive (skull of gul'dan)

    either way hes going to be redeemed somehow, the only other way they could do it would be to just act as if most of the stuff in bc didnt happen, which i could see them doing and i would be fine with.

    warcraft needs more gray characters, needs more dark anti heroes instead of the lawful good ones weve had so far.
    Ofc they where a tool for him to get power. That's really all he wants. That is why he would most likely be on our side, since he failed the legion in WC3 and hid in outland instead.

    I really just don't want to see a huge "i'm sorry, i'm really a good guy!" redemption. I rather see us having no other choice but to work with him rather. they don't need to redeem him for him to work with us.

    Illidan dos what he dos because he's a powerhungry addict. He and wrathion would most likely have a hard time working together.

Madness has embraced him, Remulos. He replays the events in his mind a thousand times per day, but in his mind, he is the victor and Arthas is utterly defeated. He is too far gone, old friend. I fear that the time may soon come that our bond is tested and it will not be as it was at the Well in Zin-Azshari."
    Fair enough, although I'm not sure how Malfurion would know what Illidan is up to, with the Dark Portal being closed at the time and all. Still, it's not unbelievable that losing to Arthas would break Illidan, exactly as Malfurion says.

    From that we can indeed see he thought he was the victor. He really was not the same Character, he was just labeled insane for the most part and it was a shame I wanted to see more of an anti hero or more truthfully just more of illidan have him showing up a bit more. (thats my real gripe)
    Then people would be voicing the same complaints they voiced about Arthas in WotLK. It's a fine line, one that Blizzard so far has not been able to manage.

    As far as I knew Vasjh was still fairly loyal to illidan so will give you the points about Zangar marsh. Fel Orcs while brutal were signed in via Kargath who wanted to be stronger, so while Illidan gave them a source of power to do so he didnt force (most) of them to be fel orcs.
    That doesn't change the fact that he was feeding demon blood to orcs.

    The main issue was him ordering his Blood elves to wipe out Shattrath for no real reason.

    As for the broken and enslaving them its not really in keeping with his personality from what we saw of wc3, it did happen but its just another point of his character was a fair bit different than what we remembered.
    It was absolutely in keeping with Illidan's character. The man was all about power and rationalizing his own selfish acts. It's a very short step from that to being a slaver, not to mention that the Naga likely would have encouraged it.

    glad thats been cleared up.
    Me too. It was clear to me that Well of Eternity had NOTHING to do with his comment of redemption for Illidan, but not for Arthas.

    yeah im not suggesting they turn him into a goody two shoes and apologize to anyone, but they will probably have him do something that proves himself in a way that people have to atleast somewhat respect him and have to admit they need his help.

    they can redeem illidan without taking away from his character or changing him.

    I think it was to do with the emerald dream and the fact they are twins (complete speculation here) so maybe something of their bond let him know of his brothers situation?

    I think with the TBC - Wrath situation we went from No bad guy showing up/ hardly showing up to saturday morning kids cartoon villains style every corner hes around every bush hes behind. Cata did the same as TBC deathwing flew around but we didnt feel or at least I didnt feel engaged. At least in mop they appear to have hit a sweet spot.

    I still feel it was not in keeping with his character enslaving the broken when they were his allies anyways but as I said I could overlook all of it if there was more explanation of what was going on. Instead all we had was hes lost his mind. Vasjh and kael pretty much acted on their own.

    no it isnt. the point of redemption is to be redeemed for things you did wrong. you dont have to become a different person to right wrongs.

    Why does everyone have a hard-on for Illidan? I mean yeah he was cool in WC3, and had his fame in TBC, but come on, resurrecting him now? What the hell it makes no sense and doesn't fit in anywhere.

    You really don't understand what redemption is, or entails. It absolutely requires change. It's not just saying sorry or paying debts. It's being saved from sin. For Illidan to be redeemed, he would at the very least he would have to give up his lust for power, and more likely give up power altogether.

    For example: for Darth Vader to be "redeemed", he had save his son and turn on the Emperor, acts he previously would not have been capable of because he would not have recognized the evil being done, or at least not cared. Darth Vader's redemption absolutely required his character to change.

    If we go by this logic are you aware how many characters we'd need to revive? Deathwing for starters.

    Either way, looking forward to the inevitable Illidan return.

    please dont bring religion into this. redemption is simply being redeemed for something, you dont have to change, you dont have to become a better person you just have to do something that redeems yourself.

    for some people changing themselves can LEAD to redemption but it is not the end all be all of redemption.

    there are plenty of people throughout fiction and history that have redeemed themselves without changing who they are.

    Well... Demons are transferred back to the Twisting Nether upon defeat, aren't they? Illidan became a demon as well because of Sargaras' actions on him. Doesn't this mean that Illidan can be summoned again?

    I don't think that's all demons, I think there was something about it only being the Nathrezim. Illidan was also only half-demon. Sargeras never really touched Illidan either, it was the Skull of Gul'dan that twisted him.

    he did look like a nathrezim though. i guess they could make the claim that he was a pseudo nathrezim so the same rules apply to him

    Perhaps the fact that you're trying to define the word using the word itself should clue you into the fact that there's something wrong with your concept of it.

    there are plenty of people throughout fiction and history that have redeemed themselves without changing who they are.
    No. There aren't.

    Deathwing, well aside from the fact he was supposed to be cunning bla bla bla, they just went the cheap route of "He's insane".

    Its like when all else fails hit the insanity button.
