    Do any Prime Timeline meet their Alternate Timeline version?

    So at any point do any Prime timeline characters meet their alternate timeline counter parts? I haven't seen any. And it seems if a "prime character" is active in the alternate Draenor they either:

    A. Have their alternate counterpart still alternate Azeroth which hasn't been contacted
    B. The prime timeline character is dead but alterate version is alive (Doomhammer, Duraton, etc...)
    C. Only exist in the prime timeline (Garrosh, Maraad)

    Seems there is a great chance for some "Timey Whimy Wibbly Wobbly" stories but Blizzard has avoided that altogether. Only characters I know that exists in both timelines at the same time but don't meet are:
    Velen
    Garona
    Akama
    Lantresor of the Blade
    Farseer/Vindicator Nobundo
    Drek'Thar
    Nazgrel (He's just a baby in the AT)

    I haven't played Horde so there might be some there. But what about people that *should* exist at the same time.

    Rexxar
    Saurfang
    Rehgar Earthfury
    Zaela


    Any other characters I'm missing?

    I don't think there are any and I think thats the reason AU Velen died in Shadoowmoon (Haven't done those quests, I'm Horde). To avoid meetings :P

    I've read some really interesting fan fic where an npc meets AU self. And no, it wasn't "dirty"
    You're a towel.

    Nope. Blizzard said they didn't want to mess with that.

    The alternate timeline seems designed to remove anybody from our timeline that could cross over. That's why Garrosh was never born, and why Shadowmoon's storyline progresses as it does.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    no. because blizzard is fucking incompetent and want to create a expansion where we go back in time without dealing with the ramifications of time travel

    "just pay attention to the savage draenor; don't sweat the small stuff ;DDDDD" is what say. who cares about plot holes like durotan not recognizing the doomhammer when you can fight against EPIC an COOL orcz like BLACKHAND THE DESTROYER (so epic lol)

    I would really like to see Yrels reaction if she ever met MU Velen......

    no. because blizzard is fucking incompetent and want to create a expansion where we go back in time without dealing with the ramifications of time travel

    There would be no ramifications. This isn't just time travel this is an alternate universe altogether. EVEN BEFORE GARROSH ARRIVED this Dreanor had differences from ours, such as Garrosh never being born and Ner'Zhul never having killed his wife.

    As for the Doomhammer, I would chaulk that up to the fact that they were busy trying not to die against Blackhand. Ogrim likely didn't think to pay attention to his allies weapons let alone that there could be another Doomhammer.

    There is a thin line between not knowing and not caring, and I like to think that I walk that line every day.

    are you retarded? i'm talking about ramifications as in MU characters meeting their AU selves. or MU orcs/draenei having to deal with fighting their old clan/fighting to protect family they lost.

    i never said anything about orgrim, i'm talking about durotan

    durotan was best friends with orgrim. there is no fucking way he wouldn't recognize the armor/weapon.

    Perhaps I missed it, but where is alternate Maraad or what happened to him?

    There is no Alternate Maraad. Like Garrosh he just didn't exist in the alternate timeline.

    Not our problem. Really, AU Draenor wouldn't be our problem either if Garrosh hadn't linked the Dark Portals and tried to invade us

    AU Rexxar is in Gorgrond. I would have thought Zaela wouldn't be born yet in the AU?

    Yeah AU Azeroth is doomed to fall to the Old Gods at the very least. All those Caverns of Time dungeons let us know what would have happened to Azeroth if the Orcs never came to the planet, and in each scenario Azeroth was toast.

    The retarded part was uncalled for. Thing is no characters have to necessarily meet. In an Alternate universe it's not necessary they'll meet. It's up to the writers themselves if they meet.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    OMG WHAT IF

    We hadn't killed Ner'Zhul in Shadowmoon Burial Grounds, and he went into MU northrend and put on the lich king helmet. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?

    Why didn't we just destroy the dark portal on our timeline side, then we would have just effectively trapped Garrosh/Wrathion in the alternate universe.

    which goes back to what i said: blizzard wants a time travel expansion without having to deal with the ramifications of time travel. which is fucking stupid, and shows their incompetence.

    Rather impossible considering only one timeline was altered. Azeroths timeline was never changed the events leading up to this point already happened.

    excusable as this is a game, not a movie/book.
