    Your headcanon is weird.
    Sorry mate, the ingame events very cleary state that most of the night elves are dead. Thats what the whole Quest was about where you try to evacuate as many as possible and fail miserably. I understand there might be hints in the books that say otherwise, but if ingame events contradict external sources, ingame events win.

    If any, for Tyrande's story, she should have replaced Sylvanas in Shadowlands cinematic. Well thinking about it it would make sense and wouldn't be tons of work beyond a new CGI model : she can use bow and arrows too, and you could justify her breaking the veil to Shadowlands because she wants to kill the Jailer to defeat Sylvanas (well, considering her "revenge" is not achieved yet, of course, because we all know it isn't, except WoW writers apparently).
    Honestly I would have preferred that over a third opening cinematic in a row featuring Sylvanas. More new figures please.
    Honestly, the idea of Tyrande doing exactly what Sylvanas did in the cinematic, just with another motivation would make sooo much more sense and IMO for a way more engaging story

    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    Phew that was a cinematic.
    Could they have put less effort in?

    Has Tyrande always had vampire like fangs? Cinematic still on the front page has her with vampiric teeth which seems odd unless its part of the effect from Elune that she got.

    The very first Night Elf chapter in TFT is in Aszhara which was somehow retconned by WoW into a barren land for some reason; hey they love retcons so doesn't matter now

    Where else would you put the port of Nendis and the Night Elven villages on the eastern coast? They're not on Winterspring and Darkshore is at the east

    this has been in the game since the darkshore warfront was a thing. why is this being treated as new?
    it was just datamined back in 8.1 but became official now; but somehow they still haven't managed to make it decent

    Dark Legacy is unfunny to the point of actual aggravation

    Man that was so cringey.
    Blood Elves were based on a STRONG request from a poll of Asian players where many remarked on the Horde side that they and their girlfriends wanted a non-creepy femme race to play (Source)

    This is just another good example that proves, that the current authors have no clue about large parts of the lore. They seem to be mostly interest in a few characters they can write shitty stories about. Everything else doesn't matter.

    Uuuh when does this play? What is this the end to?

    Besides it being lame (ingame "cutscenes" are shit anyway, might as well have them just play the RP dialogue like before), I'm kinda confused what this is for actually.

    The quality of in-game cutscenes has been shocking lately. It's like Blizzard are trying to copy FFXIV's style of storytelling but with the bare minimum of effort. The dialogue is pretty underwhelming as well - though night elves have long suffered from dubious writing ever since Cataclysm. There's a very stark contrast between how they were written back when the game first launched and how they're written now.

    At least they succeeded in avoiding Tyrande to jump aggressively in this one, that's a feat

    I saw it. I just chalked it up to Genn's routine grumpiness. I guess they're going to drag him into Tyrande's revenge story after all.

    About the Dark Legacy comic, I was actually pleasantly surprised that the "loot 3 chests" daily is retroactive, and if you happen to loot some before picking up the quest, it still counts it for you and the quest will start at 1/3 or whatever.
