I wanted them to have some sort of role in the siege but turns out Blizzard had forgotten about them
Expect Jin and Aysa to never be mentioned again, like Velen, Gallywix, Lorthemar before 5.1, Greymane, or Mekkatorque
Ji does show up in the raid though, there's an achievement to break him out of a cage.
His name is Ji firepaw, and yeah Aysa said something about them going back to the Wandering Isle and if they might still have other Pandaren join the Horde or Alliance afterwards is beyond me.
Hope we get to revisit the Wandering Isle.
PM me for my Friend Code, Battletag, ETC...
I'm also disappointed that Ji and Aysa didn't really play much of a role and I was surprised that Thalen disappeared as well. I think they might be saving him for next expansion as a personal villain for Jaina.
I think that Blizzard dropped the ball with the Wandering Isle Pandaren story. Not only is there nothing about it after you leave the Isle, but the story itself makes no sense. I just can't believe that a Pandaren could possibly join the Horde, get told that he has to slaughter his loved ones on the other side, and just be like, "Oh yeah okay." I know that someone's going to get mad and call me out on this, saying that there's more to it - and I realize that there is - but even including those details I feel like it was a weak overall story. Noble in attempts to get Pandaren in on both sides, but it was a mess. Because of that mess, the Pandaren "leaders" had no power and ultimately were forgotten.
Speaking of which, I wonder what will happen with the Horde Pandaren intro come next expac. Knowing Blizzard, they'll keep it the same and pull the "imagine you're back in time" card.
Songweaver would've made a good mini boss. It would've made perfect sense for him to run away to Garrosh's protection when the Sunreavers (which he'd been banished as a traitor from in ToW) came back to Silvermoon.
Thalen Songweaver tell his grandchildren in Silvermoon such as helped destroy Theramore
Gallywix is in the Horde Cinematic thats about it for him..but we do know he has a model now at least.
Songweaver will probably show up on the Future,maybe as a villain in a dungeon ..Kael lite.
I saw your title, and was fully intending on coming here to deliver the verbal equivalent of a punch in the dick.
This is why they need to not create anymore races for the next expansion. They need to work on the races they already have.
Pandaren had less development than other races did in their own expansion.
I read something about the girl panda freeing the boy panda or something? 0o
Even if they didn't want to go that route, I think it would've made more sense if Ji and Aysa had acted as the leaders of the Horde and Alliance shrines in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, with some recurring roles in earlier zones, showing the Huojin and Tushui in conflict, and their struggles with fighting one another. Ji could have been more like Dezco, one of the characters that helps push for the rebellion to end Garrosh.
Thalen? What about Aethus? There were so many hints that there was more behind his part in the Dalaran incident than he admitted. I'm hoping some of this might be revealed in 5.5, but alas, its probably been shoved under a rug with many other subjects
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.
My own opinion is enough for me, and I claim the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
