    If Blizzard wanted to get some hype with these cringy still pictures, they've seriously miscalculated.

    So launch is October 27th. Puts prepatch around September 28th. Well now we know about how long we have to grind different things. Which is about roughly where I was putting it in my predictions. Kind of wish November/December just to have more time, but this is fine too.

    Wouldn't the most altruistic thing be to spare Arthas? Uther has a mad grudge

    Uther was only ever and utter failure

    Uther knows that's Arthas is just a puppet in Ner'zhul hands, why did they punish him like this? Why not save his soul to redemption?

    In case of emergency, break glass. The Illidan meme for Legion.
    Another bad xpack later: Tease the King

    So our boy will be in the Maw as expected. Probably being tortured by Sylvanas. I'd rather she stay away from him though, we have an opportunity for a good lore moment, it's been a few years.

    Uhh... the "cringy still pictures" as you so articulately described have been some of the best video content (apart from their big boy videos) they've ever done lore-wise. Critical thinking is hard, but you'll get there one day.

    So... frostmourne don't trap souls. It just slightly wound them.
    And Uther in the hall of reflection is just swiped away.
    Stupid retarded writers.

    Wow, look at all those retcons and inconsistencies just flying out of this one short. GG Blizzard ganked your lore utterly.

    Strange, worked well for them with the others they did. Guess you know better.

    It's possible the sword takes the part of your soul that doesn't allow you to rest in peace...there's nothing slight about being chained to the memories of your mortal life, especially if they haunt you, as they do with Uther. I don't recall the scene in Halls of Reflection, so I can't speak to that. But in the end, what's the big deal if they retcon a bit to tell a cool story, or try to? This isn't the estate of Tolkien rewriting LOTR and telling us the hobbits were secretly dwarves or something.

    And I really liked the short, and the art style, but, to each their own.
