    WoW: Bloodsworn - Mysterious race?

    I guess this would go in General discussions.

    Anyways, is it obvious what the race is? Am I being a moron?

    Or are there any theories as to what they are?

    "As the Cataclysm rips through Azeroth, Warchief Garrosh Hellscream orders the best warriors of the Horde to come forward and serve in a new army, lest their foes in the Alliance sense weakness and attack. We meet these warriors as they come forward – from very different lands, backgrounds, traditions…

    Will they be able to overcome their deep differences and work together to serve the Horde, especially when challenged by a powerful, unfamiliar race claiming to be the real rulers of Azeroth?"

    I wouldn't think any races that were under the rule of the Old Gods would be stupid enough to call themselves the real rulers.

    But then again, any race that we don't know much about could fit the bill.

    no idea, but magistor bloodsworn is the bloodelf who created bloodknights from the captured Narruu, not sure if they are connected somehow.

    I'm pretty sure it's Mogu
    All right, gentlemen, let's review. The year is 2017 - that's two-zero-one-seven, as in the 21st Century - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of robed sissies.

    "From both the summary and the amount of time its been in development, it looks as though Bloodsworn takes place prior to Mists of Pandaria. While we likely won't see any of our pandaren pals, getting a closer look at the Horde and Hellscream's war machine during the tumultuous events of Cataclysm is apt to be fascinating. And what's up with that powerful, unfamiliar race? Ordinarily I'd say mogu, but I doubt we're dealing with Mists content.

    ive never reeally read the comics, it sounds most likely to be mogu really, but the comic takes place before MoP

    Well Mogu existed before events of MoP, they were ancient allies of Zandalari anyway. And jsut like Pandarens managed to be in lore before events of MoP. Mogu can too.

    How can they claim to be the rulers of Azeroth when they're confined to only a small island in the south? That's quite the exxageration if you ask me. So I don't think Mogu is a likely answer.

    I think we would've noticed/the pandaren would have told us that the Mogu left Pandaria at some point.

    Mogu participated in creation of Azeroth. Pandaria just holds the cradle of life which they built there in the Valley and guard/rule over (after flesh curse)
    That is they are not confined

    You might be reading this wrong:

    "claiming to be the real rulers of Azeroth" - so they claim they are the rulers of Azeroth, but it doesn't mean they have any support of their theory. This doesn't make them titans or something.
    Furthermore, based on the name, Bloodsworn, it reminds me somewhat of those naga tribes names like Bloodtide, Serpent Coil etc. And it sort of fits, naga go claim to be the real rulers of Azeroth. They could be a tribe of naga.

    Cept, Naga are not unfamiliar

    I don't know much, but is it possible the Mogu thought there was no other world outside of Pandaria?

  12. #12
    No, they created the world while serving Titans

    Except they are also described as being "unfamiliar".

    Naga might of been unfamiliar back in TFT, but they haven't been for some time.

    Personally? I don't think we are dealing with any established race in Warcraft lore. I think Blizzard is seeding in a new threat to use in the long term. There are only so many times we can keep retreading old ground, and if WoW is still going strong in the long term then we'll need some other threat to deal with and it's better to be something that's at least loosely established in Warcraft lore.
    Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.

    I would presume them to be the Faceless.

    They're rather unfamiliar and have some claim to being the true rulers of Azeroth.

    Can't be Mogu. This takes place before MoP and the mists only disappeared couple weeks before MoP when Chen/Li li broguht the Pearl of Pandaria to the mists. All in the Quest for Pandaria story.

    It's much more likely to be faceless ones.

    If Chen (a pandaren) happened to be outside Pandaria before MoP - so could Mogu.

    In many of the earlier released artwork the characters were shown fighting centaurs, so I think it's likely that the race may have a connection to Deepholme and Therazane, but that's just speculation for now.

    They started work on this comic like a year before Cataclysm was even released so I wouldn't expect it to be an MoP tie-in, except maybe for some Seige of Orgrimmar stuff, since it's about an elite Horde militia organized by Garrosh (most likely the "Bloodsworn").


    It was originally going to be a monthly series called World of Warcraft: Horde that would run along with the original WoW comic, which was going to be renamed World of Warcraft: Alliance. Then Darkhorse and DC Comics went through changes and they decided to change those two series into graphic novels, becoming Bloodsworn and Dark Riders, respectively.

    Zandalari seem to fit the bill.
