    I didn't right up until he apparently is in love with Sylvanas. Yech.

    Then why would you want someone to pretend to be something he is not in your presence, just to appease you?

    he needs to show up to defend her, and she turns on him draining his life or something ... and just show the look of betrayal on his face as he dies

    Nathanos has been the worst and most disgusting NPC for several expansions now.
    He really deserves to be killed off soon and forever. The writer is more than cringe-worthy...

    Nathanos will be defeated by players, then raped to death by ogre gangs. His corps will be hang on the gate of Orgrimmar and permanently whipped by pandas.

    He's always been a smug asshole. When we first meet him in vanilla we're already pretty seasoned adventurers who have handled just about everything the world up to the Plaguelands can throw at us. You're already a respected and trusted soldier. And Nathanos shits on you, calls you names, sends you out on scut work he later admits he thought up simply because it was gross and he wanted to be able to laugh at you for doing it. And you deal with everything he throws at you, up to and including killing the powerful Scourge agent who killed him and the best you get from him is a promotion from imbecile to mentally deficient, first class.

    He is a completely unneeded character. The sad role he's had so far could have been blended with an actually known and meaningful character. Very annoying to see him involved in anything. And why again is his hatred towards the Alliance or rather toward the living?
    Is he just a malicious hateful scum to impress Sylvanas?

    You're absolutely right. However, at that point you're just some random adventurer, by the time we meet up with again for the BFA campaign, you've done more in service of the Horde than he ever could. He reminds me of all the wives of high ranking soldiers in the military. They actually think they're the same rank as their spouse and try to run shit. Blightcaller is where he is not on merit, but on his connection to Sylvanas. Not to say he's just some random, but he's nothing compared to the player character at that point.

    Nathanos is a very obnoxious character, even if you put his character's affection and loyalty to Sylvanas aside.

    It feels as if the fandom essence of all of Sylvanas' hardcore fans slowly precipitated and materialized in the form of Nathanos Blightcaller.

    He is personification off Sylvanas fanboys.

    He is overpowered because the narrative demands it, not because he is some super duper undead.

    Even the most badass human ranger CAN NOT skip his limitations, for example, by classic fantasy tropes he would always be lex dexterous than best elven rangers (but probably would be better at this as most common elves).

    But story demanded that he would fight Avatar of whatever the fuck Elune is so he do that and survived to tell the tale. He was ganked by Genn and player character at the Stormheim and nearly killed, but sure, empowered Tyrande just was his match.

    He is still ONLY a ranger, even the best ranger in the world would get beaten to a pulp by any mid-high lvl mage, shaman, priest, druid. Player character would spit on him and break his neck.

    You're not wrong.

    thats why like 60% of horde players are blood elves though,

    The only thing I wanted from the BFA story was for Nathanos to die and be done with him. So yeah.

    goes to show how much you read during that quest. it was xavius masked as malfurion.
    Blood Elves were based on a STRONG request from a poll of Asian players where many remarked on the Horde side that they and their girlfriends wanted a non-creepy femme race to play (Source)

    Yeah. Xavius was so freaking petty. Kidnap your archrival and what do you do? Dress up like him and act like a 5 year old and succeed in making yourself look more like a child throwing a tantrum than a former royal advisor turned progenitor of a demon race turned eldritch abomination.

    Xavius was metaphorically and literally Malfurion's kryptonite. It took everything he had to free Cenarius from the corruption and he flat out told you he couldn't set foot in the Eye without immediately being lost.

    And he spoils it. Though I will give him props for the Ysera booby trap. /cries

    No he's one of the characters I actually like. Hating on him is cringeworthy IMO.

  16. #96
    He is a disgusting lapdop, ready to commit any kind of atrocity for a pat on the head from his Dark Lady. Not to mention he is insufferable whenever he opens his mouth.

    And yet, he is everything the Banshee loyalists hope to ever become and achieve

    Love is for the living and Sylvanas will sell his soul to Death. Don't Worry

  18. #98
    I like Nathanos actually.As being Sylvanas's lover i doubt Blizzard will kill him (unlike Rhonin) because she is their waifu.
    It begins with absence and desire.It begins with blood and fear.It begins with....

    that's not been stated anywhere.

    the ritual that val'kyr used to make nathanos' new body hasn't been seen before this, that i know of. nathanos and his cousin stood opposite to each other, and when the ritual completed, only ash remained where his cousin was bound. the val'kyr was incredibly weakened by the experience, too.

    the orc necrolytes gathered already dead bodies from the fields, ripped the souls from fellow orc warlocks, and shoved them into the corpses. necromancy played a part, but fel probably also played a part in the binding of the soul to the body. like gorebound wolves in WoD, demon souls shoved into the corpses of wolves and bound with fel energy.
