    It bears repeating that he will still be sad. He'll be in the Maw and all, tortured for his sins. The entire cinematic will revolve around him fighting the pain of being repeatedly impaled on the sharpened bones of the Night Elves that died in the War of Thorns or whatever his punishment will be to give us this one smile. If the point of how sad Saurfang is is not truly comprehended by the playerbase Blizzard will keep making those cinematics till the end of time.

    Sadly for him, he has the same subterranean IQ as everyone else and so forgot to safely dispose of the knife in the sharp objects container instead of giving his prisoner the only thing that could defeat him.
    He is the God of the Deep after all. He did warn us but we did not listen.

    You shouldn't support people like him, it's like supporting ISIS.

    Reorganization beams just reorganize N'zoth like as if he's never even been there. Kinda like turning him into thin air.

    Just as an addition, N'Zoth basically won until the Heart of Azeroth activated and the player became a living Azerite conduit. Lmao.

    For people pointing out the Saurfang cinematics, remember that the only reason we got so many is that they just reused a bunch of the models from the original BFA cinematic.

    Making all new models of Magni, MOTHER, N'zoth etc for this one would take exponentially longer.

    Doesn't excuse this horrible finale though. Really, they thought this would compare to the Argus cinematics?

    You mean the same guy that mercilessly killed the person that claimed Illidan to be the said "Chosen One", only for him to then reply with "There can be no "chOSeN oNe"?!

    Yeah, totally Kerrigan 2.0.

    Yeah, and the Horde player randomly getting that idea just after N'Zoth gave the player his "gift" of sight and babbled on how the knife will serve his plans even with after pulling Knaifu out of it has nothing to do with N'Zoth's influence.

    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.
    Again, it's not "Kerrigan 2.0" if the Player was never evil to begin with.

    This is the most disappointing thing that has happened in WoW for me. The cinematic was underwhelming, but the complete lack of any reaction from any NPCs, or any effect on the world beyond an award ceremony with Magni? It makes the world feel completely dead, as if nothing that happens in on Azeroth actually matters lorewise.

    For the god of the deep, his storyline this expansion was certainly very shallow...

    The other way around. Anduin already has the magical holy bones that he got after bathing in the healing waters of Pandaria so it checks out that he'd be able to do so.

    Nothing will beat Sargeras' Imprisonment and the fall of the LK, in my eyes. Finally seeing Sargeras' Full Might for the first time was amazing.

    28 seconds for an end cinematic.

    Someone call @Wilfire. We solved the mystery of his title.

    @Yarathir

    Has anyone seen whether it's N'zoth who opens the way to the heart chamber or if it's us who do it? Because if it's he who does it, then that makes the above even better. Dude arranges a series of events that takes advantage of the mental retardation of everyone else, goes free, has nothing that can harm him except one thing he has in his domain. Being a moron, he makes that thing available, but even so, the guys who come to beat him still can't do it and go insane. So he goes the extra mile to further sabotage himself by taking them to the one place where they have the animu energy to power up and beat him instead of say, corrupting the PC and only opening the way to the heart five minutes later.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    Dead Draenei are simply the best foundation of a healthy diet. Good 'ol Gul'dan was simply thinking about all those starving orphans across the stars.

    True.

    So I blame it on Tortollans. After all, we got that dagger from them.

    THE TURTLES ARE THE TRUE BAD OF THE UNIVERSE AND WE KEPT HELPING EVEN MORE OF THEM MAKE IT TO THE WATER FOR MONTHS

    If Anduin is to be burned in this situation it'd be from his holy bones punishing him for feeling hatred. Lava is unnecessary here.

    Not very surprising.

    It is like the Azshara clip from 8.2. A boring and unnecessary in engine cinematic, with lower quality than some fan videos.

    This addon startet out with great looking but mediocrely utilized lvl zones, but it got worse and worse from there. Not as bad as WoD, but it reminds me of Cataclysm, with all it's lost potential and directionless gibberish.

    But we were her pawns all this time and everything we've done served her plans. Then again she probably played 11D underwater checkers on fire.

    The Naaru was raping him and it's just more an object than an actual person.
    Illidan still went from evil dude to good guy saving the day and helping to defeat the greatest threat like that.
