    Talanji in Shadowlands?

    Since we are going to the Shadowlands and hance to The Other Side with Bwonsamdi. Are we going to see Talanji there? I want to know whether her story and Rastakhan's Bargain are going to be developed further and don't know where or whom to ask this, so I hope someone here have the answer or speculate about it.

    I imagine she will get regulated to the sideline like most key figures of each specific expansion. Saying a line or two each major patch and mostly serve has background.

    Would be interesting, given her intimate tie to death and Bwonsamdi, but I doubt it'll happen. Talanji was a figure-piece of BfA, and as with most expansions she'll probably be relegated to a smaller role behind the proverbial curtain for now. She might show up for a cameo or two, but that would be it.

    I guess Pristine Flawless Talanji will have an epic fight with 5D-Void-imbued-Sylvanas and that will be *yawns* interesting

    It would be neat and make sense... So probably not.

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    I assume breaking her pact with Bwonsamdi will be the point of the dunegon

    Blizzard barely mentioned Bwonsamdi as having a part in a Dungeon
    At best Talanji will accompany us to the Shadowlands and get trapped
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    Seems fairly obvious that the whole Rastakhan's Bargain bit, was intended to be a set up for Shadowlands content. Maybe it will get scrapped as the development process goes on but, I would definitely exspect to see Rastakhan and Talanji play a part in Shadowlands.

    I'mma assume "The Other Side" will be this expansion's Troll Dungeon.

    Zul'Side.
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    Talanji is not flawless, trying to make best possible decisions doesn't make one flawless or pristine.

    It is pretty funny how the Zandalari allied race quest looks in hindsight.
    The final trial Bwonsamdi gave to Talanji was to get the head of Sylvanas, so now Talanji either has to slink back and ask if she can still have that nice out now that Sylvanas is ousted, or even if she is going to try to keep up the prideful facade.

    The Nightborne played a big part this expansion for the Horde so I wouldn't say that's exactly true. We might see her somewhere if Ras makes a comeback

    So I guess the solution here is simple - we'll murder everyone.

    I don’t think we’ll see her in a major role for a while now. Talanji is an amazing character, but I wouldn’t mind her being put on a back seat for now, they might screw her up otherwise.

    It’s funny how she’s considered flawless after her father dying in her arms, killed by Alliance while she was tricked to go to Nazmir.

    I think there’s more to it. The whole coronation process had A lot of similarities to an initiation of a new shadow hunter. It’s possible that Bwonsamdi was checking Talanji for her loyalty and honor. He gave her a choice between her duty and freedom from him. She chose her duty. That shows that she won’t betray the deal he made with Rastakhan easily.
    I’d say that it was an offer that would have benefited Bwonsamdi no matter what. Either preserving his high status or getting a powerful soul into his service.

    Jokes aside, while I find Bwosamdi an interesting character, Talanji bores me to death.

    We might see her having a small questline in Bwosamdi's dungeon, or having a small role in a particular campaign the way Thalryssa did in Naz'jatar but I think that will be all of it.

    Since Bwonsamdi offered to release her from the pact her father made with him if she brought him Sylvanas' head, and the last time she declined because Sylvanas was the warchief of the Horde, it would be weird if the expansion didn't end with Talanji collecting Sylvanas' head.

    Pretty sure that the Zandalari and the loa's will be involved in this exp pack.
    Since we have some loa's of death in the lore.

    Looking forward to the dungeon. Bwonsamdi was hands down the best character of BFA
    Me not that kind of Orc!
