    Feels like a plot point to be by now. The thing about Lawful Good, and Lawful Evil, is they're on the same Lawful alignment!

That's because Sylvanas exploited the frenzy of these mentally-broken undead for her own gains, and only AFTER the battle did she offer them a choice. Was that not already a betrayal of the "free will" ideal that she seemed to love so dearly?
    Absolutely; and that quest is where (imo) the gutting of her character began. The funny bit is that it actually would have been fine if Blizz had just said "YUP! She lied. She only offers that choice when and if it falls in line with her goals!"

    A character can betray their ideals, that's well and good (Hell that's Arthas in a nutshell lol). But for <insert reasons here> Blizz decided to double down on it, insisting that she was still all about free will, despite all of us loudly citing exactly that quest in all of our questioning. Maybe it was an issue of two many hands in the same pot that made her character get so convoluted, or <insert any other rationalization here>. For my part, it's a shame to have watched one of my favorite characters turn into....well you've been watching the same story I have lol.

    I guess my point is that I don't really have an issue with her becoming a villain, just with the janky as hell road that lead us here.

The tree ITSELF was very much was completely defenseless against this unprovoked attack, being a tree (and apparently extremly flammable) made it even weaker then any conventional city that is firebombed. Besides this act of genocide was completely unforseeable, even Sylvanas lackeys were taken by surprise by the order, so no one could even think of a way to defend against it.

    Of course it outwardly says that. But you can't really deny that Jaina as the ruler of Theramore was very much neutral, thus her city posed no threat to the Horde until Garrosh started his campaign. The wiki you mention even goes as far as speak of an unofficial truce that is broken by Garroshs campaign, forcing Theramore into a more active role.
    Thrall had previously welcomed Theramore's presence after the Third War saying Jaina and her people would always have a home there and Jaina had ties to the Horde, she even secretly supported Baine when he was in need. Much to the annoyance of Varian when he learned of this later. Jaina even actively prevented the two factions from slaughtering each other in the Undercity and later when they meet with Brann in the Ulduar trailer. And let us not forget that she sacrificed her bloody father so he would not wipe out the Horde...
    Had Garrosh not started a war and nuked her city, she and Theramore would have never become a threat to him.

    This is the same stuff as what Sylvanas fed Saurfang when he questioned the need for more war. Sure the two factions might clash again in the future, but saying that the survival of the Horde depends on first wiping out the Alliance is bullshit. Both Sylvanas and Garrosh commited their atrocities because they wanted to, they only made up reasons so that other people would help them with it.

Jaina had no other option at that point, she knew that that warmongering tyrant would come for Theramore. Garrosh harbored a deep hatred for humans, there is no way he wouldn't march on such a mighty human city eventually, especially since Theramore was so close to his doorsteps.
    Indeed so. For most Hordes the idea that the Alliance would fight back against them is already a crime, so they conveniently forget about the circumstances.

    I would undersstand that orcs, trolls, goblin and forsaken would follow sylvanis.

    Orcs arent that smart.
    Trolls arent that smart either.
    Goblins want money.
    Forsaken see sylvanis as their own.

    But I dont understand that every other race would follow sylvanis after the burning of teldrassil.

    Bloodelves are mad at night elves, but to the degree that they want to burn every single citizen?
    Nightborn just had a different opinion and thats it, so they wouldnt follow sylvanis.
    Taurens are mostly peacefull guys, so seeing citizens burn would anger them.

    "Wiser and more cunning"

    a.) Slides into Arthas' melee range as an archer to get owned by him.
    b.) Assumes that even though she mind controls random soldiers on the battlefield when they come back, doesn't do the same to her higher ranking new resurrectees, resulting in Godfrey resurrecting and promptly capping her.
    c.) Throws a tantrum and ruins her smart plan to isolate the Night Elves from the Alliance, which had already succeed, after a single Night Elf commander says she feels bad for her. Causing a huge world war and making virtually every leader on the planet want her dead. Like Garrosh.
    d.) Abandons leadership of one of the two superpowers on Azeroth after Saurfang gets a single hit against her even though her remaining Warchief could have led to far, far more deaths for her plan.

    Sylvanas' entire MO has been overconfidence and it blowing up in her face. Usually because she's a child who throws tantrums when 100% of her plans don't go exactly according to plan. Which is funny considering Blizzard bruteforces 99.9% of them to succeed regardless of reality anyway.

    Oh but sorry for interrupting all the people whining about Humans and Anduin again, like every thread on this subforum. Resume your totally unique and never before heard commentary.

    The faction war in general, especially this one can best be embodied by the two leaders, Sylvanas and Anduin.

    The Horde had a perfect setup for a dramatic redemption arc now that we have seen just how low races of teh Horde, especially orcs are willing to go for what they percieve as the greater good.
    The Alliance similarly has the perfect setup for a story revolving around the moral dilemma of how many chances you give someone when you know that they can be better. Do you take them at face value as the psychotic murderers they seem to be, or do you try to look past that and salvage teh good from it.

    But of course, the leaders were Sylvanas and Anduin.

    The Horde having Sylvanas as a leader meant that all moral complexity and Saurfang guilt got thrown to the wayside because Sylvans betrayed teh Horde and the orcs Dundu nuffin.
    The Alliance having Anduin as a leader meant they could not truly explore the harsh vengeance angle that the entire Alliance should be onboard with given how many times the Horde has attacked them unprovoke,d kill thousands, offed a corrupt leader then walked away scot-free.


    At least the faction waris hopefully over now, Blizzard clearly has no intention of making that story with any levels of depth.

    But like it's not even a case of fighting back, it's just a case of anticipating the inevitable. It was obvious that Garrosh wouldn't stop at the Kaldorei in his bid to conquer Kalimdor and the world and he had to be stopped before he became invincible, so Jaina reacted in a proactive way. If only the Allied leaders had learned a few things from Jaina, maybe we wouldn't have had WW2...
    We each walk a line. Choose yours.

    Saurfang tells her she failed to kill hope -> Sylvanas goes nuclear and wipes Saurfang out

    As for how it came to the duel?

    Sylvanas was 100% sure she would win, which even without knowing of her Jailer-instant-death powers was obvious to anyone watching, so she decided to accept and torture the Old Soldier a bit for her personal amusement, there was no downside in it for her. Or so she thought in her immense arrogance.

    Turns out Saurfang knew full well that he would die and instead of focussing on winning, he targeted her emotional vulnerability that he had seen on Darkshore. The result was spectacular: Sylavans went nuclear in full view of the Horde and Alliance and people finally saw her true face just before she ran away from her failure like the coward she is. Only the most blind and fanatic people would follow her after such a show.

    Sylvanas might be able to outthink her enemies and make plans completely devoid of moral considerations, but her emotional instability is a great weakness and that is what the cinematic was supposed to show.

    I bet she does not apppear weak for most people watching these duels, because after saurfang vs sylvanas we got bolvar vs sylvanas as intro cinematic to shadowlands, doing the exact same, without showing that emotional weakness.

    And, needles to say i find this kind of screenwriting disgusting. It might be epic to see the LK again, in some way and form, but not sylvanas.....its like seeing female garrosh for the 3rd time in a row, starting with legion, at least in legion her cinematic appearance made some sense.

    Only one of them is actually legit and its a tauren tribe. Attack on Sunreavers during the purge wasnt a racial cleansing, it was attack on a political/military group, or even a sect if you can call it that way. Like if somebody decided to wipe out Mormons or something. And thats if we actually go to the deepest end and assume that she wanted them all dead (which she didnt, most of them got jailed). And Jaina didnt wiped out Orgrimmar, and she wouldnt be stopped if she didnt found it in her to stop. Sylvanas simply went and killed hundreds of thousands of people out of hatred to all life and weird, misguided quest to overfeed a Jailer.

    Undead or Forsaken specifically are not a race, its a condition. You sound like one of those who argue that curing deafness is “genocide of deaf culture and sign language”.

    I agree, she is outwardly very powerful, the way she blocked Saurfangs (an Orc 3 head bigger then herself and about three times her weight in pure muscle) overhead slash with a two-handed axe with just a dagger, made it obvious that she can`t be beaten by sheer strength. Frankly, I did not expect that, I thought she'd evade to play into the classical theme of "speed over power". That she is actually the stronger one of the two was a surprise.

    Since Saurfang was probably one of the most powerful warriors at that time, maybe even the most powerful after Varians death, this shows a clear image. We won`t beat her with strength alone. It remains to be seen if magic or the Light/Shadow/Fel can still harm her.

    Generally I did not mind the fact that she won against Bolvar, she was favoured in this fight by being undead and thus immune to many of the things Bolvar could do (Frost and Unholy basically do nothing, lorewise), I am just pissed by HOW EASY she won. At least let him get one decent smack with that hammer in so she drops her insufferable smug smirk.

    But the difference of the fight with Saurfang is, that she actually HAD to evade the hammer. So there is a limit to her physical strength. It is just way above anything we can hope to achieve at the moment (we needed more then 10 people + Anduin, Genn and Alleria to take down even Saurfang). If we want to destroy her we have to target her weakspot and that is her emotional instability.

    It is a running theme that Sylvanas cannot deal with emotions, especially negative ones that result from remembering her past. Probably a result of being an undead for many years and thus cut off from her emotions. She is actively trying to mask any lingering feelings but that mask is getting cracks now and then. Like in War Crimes after Vareesa decided against poisoing Garrosh. Sylvanas was completely out of control, the feeling of betrayal nearly wiped out her sanity to the point that she went through a forest and just killed any animal she could find, including tearing the head of a bear with her bare hands.

    If we can somehow use this to our advantage we can win, no matter what Jailer death powers she possesses.

    Undead or Forsaken specifically are not a race, its a condition. You sound like one of those who argue that curing deafness is “genocide of deaf culture and sign language”.
    from UN definition genocide is: "acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group", sunreavers are ethnic group, you might argue it wasnt genocide (i think it was but ok) but however you twist it it was ethnic purge, massacre at best...

    "curing deafness is “genocide of deaf culture and sign language”" - im pretty sure sterilizing (a.k.a. making them unable to procreate) deaf people wouldnt cure them... and neither it cures undead, so again, twist it how you want, definition disagrees with you on this one completely...

    as for Jaina, she was persuaded to stop, yes she changed her mind but it wasnt on her own, so at minimum she wanted to commit genocide, before SOMEONE ELSE (and not alliance members) changed her mind

    why is that? you think i shouldnt bring definition from UN (geneva convention) into game i assume? well, but then burning teldrasssil WASNT genocide, as there is no law in azeroth stating what genocide is

    so we can either use real world definitions (we already use real world morality anyway) or there NEVER was any genocide in azeroth...
    i prefer to use real world definition, rather than normal forum attitude "horde killing alliance is genocide, alliance killing horde is justified action" which is stupid hypocrisy...

    Yes, this definition is extremly stupid. Thank you, UN. Think about it. You can use this definition to assign the word genocide to even the killing of ONE person, since it says "in parts". Every person alive belongs to some national, ethical, religious or racial group. If killing "parts" of such a group is genocide then the Death Sentence in Texas is genocide.
    Obviously no one in their right mind would say that, as with most "clear" definitions made by politicians, this one can encompass everything and nothing. But as thinking people we know that the word genocide is reserved for big horrible acts, such as the Holocaust, the murder of Native Americans and similar things. Acts that intentionally try to "destroy a population", as it says in another definition.

    Jaina never intended to wipe out the Blood Elf race, she just wanted them out of Dalaran because some of them betrayed Dalaran's neutrality and endangered a bloody continent with their leader being fully aware of this and hiding it. As I said in some other post, if Jaina had wanted to wipe them out she would have done so, easily.

    Of course she did not stop on her own, but she did not need to be overpowered is what I am saying. Also considering his ties to Jaina I am no longer sure we can count Kalec as neutral. I mean is that not what many of the Horde say about Baine for being friends with Anduin? If Baine is an Alliance lapdog then Kalec is Jaina's pet.

    There is a very clear understanding what Genocide is. War Crimes makes that clear, when Tyrande flatout asks Varian if he is genocidal. Even if there is no UN there, there is codified law. Teldrassil definately falls under it, Jaina's purge of Dalaran does not, no matter how you tyr to twist it.

    I always love when Hordes use the word Hypocrasy. Every time a new atrocity from the Horde side happens, we see the same lame excuses (Dalaran, Stormheim, Taurajo). I have yet to see any act by the Alliance that claimed as many lives as the Burning of Teldrassil alone.

    I am also fine with her being the scum she is, no bullshit or whatsoever, straight up scum who is hellbent on destroying the world. That is a villain I can get behind.
