    Sylvanas = Kitty Pride...

    So apparently Sylvanas can phase-shift herself into an incorporeal form a la Kitty Pryde or Matrix Twins...

    Lore-wise, Sylvanas has the ability to shift into corporeal and incoporeal forms (it' is kind of like the "Matrix Twins"). (Loreology)
    So she STILL has it? Wasn't retconned or lost?
    Yup! Last ruling I have is that she maintains the ability to switch in and out of coporeality. (Loreology)
    So for the record, she can't leave her body like a valkyr possession, but she can pass through things like Shadowcat (X-men)?
    All I have is that lore ruling, so I'm guessing it's a Kitty Pryde type deal. She's quite pleased to have her body back. (Loreology)

    I know KrazyK is gonna love this development.

    Cool, although I can think of a few points in the story thus far where actually doing that would have saved her a lot of trouble. I've been thinking about how her powers are super vague for a while now. What does she actually get from being the Banshee Queen? All we ever see her do is shoot arrows and occasionally use the banshee's wail or pump up her allies with a song. I've always thought she should have a few more tricks up her sleeve/clawed gauntlet than what we've seen.

    It's the reason you used to have to bring a druid with you when the alliance did an Undercity raid.
    If your raid didn't have a druid to cast fairie fire on Sylvanas she would phase shift and become untargetable for a while.

    For the love of...

    Umm...

    hmmm...

    okay, how about this...

    I find it inspiring how a racial leader who's failed so many, many times, so utterly and so completely, still finds the deep-seeded narcissism to get up in the morning and continue attempting to look like a competent individual.

    There, that sounded cheery enough, right?

    I'd imagine anything on her person would also turn incorporeal until she shifts back into her normal physical form.

    Wasn't that just vanish?

    Interesting. I wonder if she'll gain additional powers of the undead as she grows older and more powerful. Perhaps a Legacy of Kain-style undead evolution into more powerful forms.

    Kosak implies that Sylvanas can grow in power:

    In Silverpine Forest, we learn that Sylvanas can't raise undead from bodies of night-elves / gnomes / dwarves. Is this canonical?
    ...or Worgen! That's canonical at the time of Silverpine. But, Sylvanas could always grow in power down the line... (DaveKosak)

    What the f-

    How come she never did it since... forever? Or are they just inventing excuses for more superpowers up the asses of racial leaders? Getting sick of this shit.

    Well, they've already stated they want to build her up for a reckoning sometime in the future.

    For the love of baby Jesus... It's pretty damn obvious that Sylvanas is going to be a villain. The only problem is how many cool lore characters have to die in the process, and how much stuff they stomp over to try and write her into being angsty-undead-Garrosh-with-boobs.

    Hate her. Hate her character. Hate her "powers." Hate her undeserved attitude. Hate the fact that she wont stay dead, and has no reason to in the future. Hate that the fangasms over her have trivialized so much of other race's lore. You know what? Making her a raid boss is more attention than she ever deserves. In my perfect world, Sylvannas doesn't die. (for the fourth damn time mind you.) No, she sits in Undercity and is forgotten. That's all she deserves going forward.

    Give Gilneas back to the Worgen, hillsbrad back into an actual contested state, and give them some in-game ALLIANCE story and I could care less if we never heard a peep out of Sylvanas again.
