    I have to say this was what I expected but far worse. Nzoth was the one thing I hope blizzard wouldnt completely fuck up. I guess we have half assed generic villains and sylvans to look forward to until the inevitable reboot in a few years.

    They are clearly run out of ideas. The Wrathion cinematic reminded me of Arya vs King of the Night and the final cinematic of a random episode of Dragon Ball Z.

    Like another posted before "i was expecting nothing and still i'm disappointed".

    N'zoth didn't feel the big bad boy of the expansion and his end feels like we defeated a random dude, like with Deathwing on Cataclysm. So much lore wasted in this expansion: Azshara and Nazjatar and the Old Gods and Nyalotha.

    There's something astoundingly hollow about the "victory" that follows this cinematic. It's probably the fact we beat this Old God in the patch after he was just released and became a "threat" to Azeroth and there also happens to be a crazy elf seeking death en mass that is still out there and is actually able to follow through on that plan.

    In terms of an expansion, a story-- you can't just start it with blaring sirens and celebration and then end it with a wet fart.

    You wouldn't enjoy a book either if it started great then ended the main point of conflict that was built up in 1 page of anticlimactic bullshittery.

    Its was the horde "champion" that handed it to her. It was basically "geez, this dagger had an old god in it. And it still reeks of bad voodoo. Nzoth could have done something to it... Yes, I'll just bring it to my warchief, what could go wrong"

    Good lord that's bad.
    The real cinematic is attached to the in-game cutscene. It just shows N'Zoth blowing up and Ny'alotha disappearing.

    We'll go into Shadowlands straight into the part of Sylvanas being redeemed and killing Jailer or whoever is the true enemy to her Kylo Ren plot.

    Yeah I saw. 20 seconds of Nzoth dying and all his constructs disappearing...? Yikes they really cut corners on 8.3. What a terrible end.

    Sylvanas will kiss Anduin to transfer her life essence to him to save his life.

    There's no critical people on this site. They either love it too much or hate it too much.

    Or just GoT ending lmao. 8.3 had even Arya... ehym, Wrathion jumping at the big bad with a magical dagger.
    Is Anduinn going to be Danearys and burn Orgrimmar?

    They couldn't find a way to hamfist Wrathion's smug face in there so they had no motivation to make something cool out of the expansion finale.

    You thought it was Sylvanas who was playing 10D interdimensional poker, but it was actually us, the PC.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.
