    Probably because she knew Saurfang would go to him or got wind that Rexxar wanted to send a message to Thrall after Baine got imprisoned. Of course Thrall is still a threat since he was such an iconic warchief in WC lore.
    Yes, both are very useful as far as words go. Soyboy cucks are the worst.

    Often apt descriptors for the very people who use them .

    Nice cinematic. Nice to Thrall has been at the gym and decided to replace Mjolnir with Stormbreaker.

    I'd like to see some Lor'themar action as well. Based on what I've seen for 8.2 he's a big part of the current story and Baine in comparison has a massive amount in game.

    As I and others have pointed out, there’s no evidence they were actually there to kill Thrall. Yes, they very well could have been sent by Syl with plans to stop a potential rebellion with him or even to make it look like Alli did it to rally the Horde behind her.
    The flip side is that she sent them to just watch Thrall in case Saurfang showed up. Seeing as how they attacked they were there to kill Saurfang when he appeared. You know, common tactic to watch people your enemies might go to when seeking refuge or allies to help them.
    I also pointed out the Rogue attacking Saurfang clearly has poison coming off their daggers, whereas Thrall’s attacker appears to be normal blades. Possibly more for keeping Thrall busy or to cause a no lethal injury while the other is trying to kill a traitor.
    Either way, I hope Blizz clarifies at some point as most people seem to think she wanted to kill Thrall, which I am completely open to admit as a possibility/

    I can't help but feel like the writers don't understand that stealth doesn't literally make you invisible.

    Watching the undead slip into and out of invisibility right in front of people was a bit stupid.

    In WoW lore rogues use a bit of shadow magic to cloak themselves, hence Cloak of Shadows and Shadow Step. Otherwise thinking they are just hard to notice even 2 feet away is just ridiculous.

    the stealthing is too sci-fi looking and not the creepy fantasy stealth that rogues and wow lore are known to use. too marvely. gross.

    Lore-wise, you're a sneaky bastard. That's how you're not noticed 2 feet away.

    You know how to hide yourself behind cover, and can move silently. The idea behind stealth is to play into the assassination part of rogue, which has NEVER required full invisibility. That way, you simply get close, close the gap, then assassinate the target. And then you disappear back behind cover.

    It has never been about invisibility. If rogues could be fully invisible, what's stopping them from assassinating everyone in their sleep whenever they feel like it? In fact, now that we know it is, why hasn't Sylvanas just sent assassins to murder all of us in our sleep, since they're invisible?

    They could literally wait in our rooms till we went to sleep and we'd have no idea. Because they're literally fucking invisible.

    Yeah, Nagrand <3
    It was 100% Metzen. He just didn't have a lot of lines, and his voice was very subdued for the characterization. But it was definitely him.

    Saurfang enjoyed killing the defenseless civilians when the horde attacked stormwind during the second war, he said so himself. He is a piece of shit who enjoyes murdering defencless womena nd children for fun.

    That is the horde.

    Actually to others it DOES make you invisible if you are out of range of them.

    Also confirmed for next expansion enha shammies and warriors will cream rogues in pvp. j/k

    Why is it so many people think rogues can't go invisible when mages can fucking go invisible? I know stealth is meant to work differently, but I don't see why it can't be essentially rogues using a bit of dark magic themselves to literally become invisible in dark environments. Yeah, in broad daylight it is stupid to see, but at night or in places like Duskood when they can use the shadows to their advantage with some dark magic aid? Why not?

    Awesome cinematic. I love how people keep bringing up Saurfang's past. Yeah, he was a piece of shit, and he himself has admitted that much, and has spent his older years trying to atone for it. It doesn't justify what Sylvanas is doing. I really hope the story goes in a place where Saurfang and Thrall smash that bitch's face in with a great big hammer.

    Because a warrior can track 2 stealthed rogues!

    You are both a traitor and a terrible liar.
    The only real traitors are those who follow a crazy undead and unrightful warchief.

    Shades of grey guys, shades of grey!

    Also, glad rogues have finally shown up in a cinematic after 15 years.

    Also Blizzard: Here's Garrosh 2.0. Enjoy our clever lore.
