    In place of Illidan getting the Kerrigan treatment in Legion, we got "blow up big bad with friendship beam" instead.

    @Darknessvamp

    Why does Azshara have the dagger if she's a prisoner?
    I'm guessing it was N'zoth's way of taunting her. "Na na na I am literally feet away from you and the one thing that can rupture my flesh and expose my vital organs is in your grasp but you can't use it. Na na..."

    That wasn't a friendship beam at all, and Illidan never got the Kerrigan treatment, tf?!

Maybe the cutscene is short, but at least in this expansion you, the player, are incorporated into it to some degree. This time you can't say someone like Wrathion stole your kill. Canonically, the Alliance/Horde Adventurer took down N'Zoth in Ny'alotha.
    It's shit in my opinion, I can't and won't speak for others.

    I don't mind the player characters getting the kill on bosses, I do find it strange how we're THE Champion now and it's not just ChampionS of Azeroth(since that's what Magnis faction is called). I suppose there's only one Heart of Azeroth or some shit, still I would've liked it better had they channeled the power through everyone in the raid and not just the one player character.

    Really put emphasis on how you need a group of people for this kind of stuff.

    I just want Shadowlands at this point, let's hope it doesn't take too long for them to release it. Don't wanne be doing this for the next 10 months.

    Story, that was already known with the announcement of SL. They complain about the form, not ending itself.

    Like dafuq? I agree that as a show of power N'zoth was pitiful, but to pretend he has been anything but a charactersless blob of void like all the Old Gods are is hilarious. "character development" my ass bahhaha.
    The Thunder King was one patch of build up and that's your avatar. I'm not really gonna take your word as gospel, lmao.

    Too true, I know WarCraft lore can be retconned on a whim, but the mighty and infamous Old Gods are just mere pets of the Void Lords. Were no more than pests for the Titans who themselves unfortunately lacked the finesse to deal with them directly.

    I guess the additional voices are the Lords, their attention being drawn by the purge of their underlings.

    Void Lords are just Blizzard Dragon Ball Z-ing the Old Gods.

    N'Zoth still deserved better than this.

    Here is how I would've managed to make a less anticlimactic cinematic with a Blizz classic style :
    Goblins go crazy cus of N'zoth, prepare to fire the Azshara canon on Stormwind albeit the peace agreement, the cinematic shows the canon almost be fired by corrupted goblins and then n'zoth explodes and goblins are freed at the last second and change the position of the canon to fire somewhere else : Boom you have your "sword impact" of bfa but it's a crater and it's on another zone !

    Ez
    I AM MY SCARS!
    -Illidan, Legion.

    Using Azeroth's power to blast N'Zoth apart while Magni screams his lungs out about how "Azeroth's strength is our strength" could have fooled me.

    and Illidan never got the Kerrigan treatment, tf?!
    Precisely my point. He never became a glowing avatar of a divine power like the Illidan novel alluded to, so we got the climax to LotV in BfA instead.

    Compare this storyline... to the one another Villain got in another recent MMO that brought Shadows.

    It's like... N'zoth didn't even have a story. Is Blizzard just phoning it in at this point?

    So is Classic. But this fan site is about WoW in general, not just BFA.

    To be honest, I'm not surprised, not am I disappointed. The cinematic team did an incredible job throughout bfa and I think they are just more focused on Shadowlands at this point so I can't be angry at them for rushing that part.
    Is this literally the "Don't worry - wait for patch x.x" meme?
