    Bolvar looked like he was about to cry as Sylvanas broke his magical hockeymask.

    Maybe there always was but his soul was in the shadowlands... Along come legion want this power here's deaths chance to get immense power on the outside till 1 day it's broken. Why there must always be a lich king now or this happens

    Bolvar is not a deathknight he was the lich king, arthas only became a deathknight because of frostmourne, putting on the helmet does not turn you into a deathknight.

    and Bolvar resisted being turned by Arthas into a DK, unlike Dranosh.

    This whole thing is why it's bad for there to not be one, keep up.
    Doesn’t make any sense. Lich King was created by the Burning Legion. There was no implication that there’s a greater Death connection aside from being able to use necromancy extremely well.

    That quote has always been about dominating the undead. With no intellect behind them the undead would just create a zombie apocalypse. Now it’s about creating a path to the afterlife?

    Yeah okay.

    Yup, makes no sense. They just can't help breaking the lore and the continuity for the their silly rule of cool. I knew that "There must always be a Lich King" was going to bite them in the ass. Made no sense then, made no sense now.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't "Lich King" made when Kil'jaeden decided it was enough to abuse Ner'zhul in the Twisting Nether, so he decided to cast him into the "frozen roof of the world" and use him as a pawn to weaken the world's inhabitants, so Burning Legion could conquer Azeroth easier?

    With all this they did for this expansion, they kind of killed whole immersion between keeping "undead at bay" and ultimate power of Necromancy. Who was the Lich King before Ner'zhul tho, and on top of that, what is the line of succession on that matter? Did Ner'zhul just stomp the old Lich King when he landed in ice on top of the Frozen Throne, and thus became a new one?

    Visual effects are nice tho, right?

    Wish they indeed would answer to what happened to the Scourge Horde under the control of Lich King's Helm of Domination. Were they redeemed, released to Azeroth or transferred to Shadowlands with the portal opening?

    E: just don't say that the Scourge Horde invasion will be their device for a world revamp in 10.0..

    Can't argue there, cheers. In fact, from my point of view, they almost always surpassed the "expectations bar" set by community.

    Here's hoping that the What's Next panel get's me more hyped. Nothing about what I've seen is hyping me so far.

    So did Blizzard just retcon all lore from before Ner'zhul was cast to Azeroth by Kil'jaeden? Because without the Lich King, there was no barrier between the worlds, so War of the Ancients had to look completely different, huh. Also there's nothing in WoW ingame books and no NPCs are talking about that meteor that crashed in Northend which caused the eternal rift between the worlds to close. lmao

    I wonder this too. I'm sure they'll try to explain it somehow, but indeed it's a very obvious hole in the plot.
