    Destroying Tyrande's character arc by turning her into an edgelord with the night warrior gimmick. Why not just put her in a leather jacket and have her tool around on a motorcycle????

    They were never going to make playable High Elves anyway. It took them 3 YEARS to give void elves pink skin, something that should've been here since their introduction.
    Fair enough. But then again, more people are saying that like Umbric and his researchers should have never existed and let Alleria be a single anomaly instead with just a future plot point. It's too difficult for me to even justify their existence to the WC3 purists

    "The light" being a power granted by wind chimes. It should have stayed as some divine entity we never get to meet. Big let-down, especially since one of those wind chimes got corrupted, proving they are, in-fact, fallible. I want my divinity to be infallible, thank you.

    On the contrary I find it very intriguing. With Umbric and his void elves, we can see how a new race is formed. For many years we heard of how the high elves came to be when Dath'remar and a few others were changed by their long voyage in the EK (so they became an anomaly), so actually seeing the process of an old race evolving into a new subrace is very interesting.

    At this point trying to reason with WC3 purists is like trying to find arguments for a thread called "Sylvanas is secretly the hero".
    We each walk a line. Choose yours.

    Cataclysm's Go'el. Maybe not even the concept itself, though the concept and its execution were already atrocious in their own right. But the main stupidity regarding him was Blizzard's insistence to shove him in every... single... goddamn plot thread of that god-forsaken expansion to satiate Metzen's lust for his own self-insert. 4.2 trailer about Ragnaros taking another swing at Hyjal, the most sacred place of the Night Elves and with importance to Druids? Shove Go'el in. 4.2 itself? Shove a questline about Go'el splitting into multiple Go'els that we have to reforge back into one Go'el. Then let's end it with Go'el's wedding to a character whose only purpose in the story has ever been saying "Go'el" 20 times per second and spawning more Go'els. A book about the Aspects, shenanigans with time and the rise of a new Aspect of Magic? More Go'el please. Dragon Soul and the short story leading up to it? Go'el, Go'el and then some more fucking Go'el.

    The #1 stupidest thing in lore however is the fact that Azeroth is a "special" planet. It houses the greatest and most powerful Titan soul. This cheapens EVERYTHING we do in lore. Before that revelation, we were just some random heroes that were able to defeat incredible foes because our of will, determination and training. After that revelation, we are the special chosen that were born with a silver spoon. We can defeat incredible foes because we are backed by the greatest Titan and draw upon its power in various ways. Its much less compelling.

    someone had to do it. I don't want another retarded Reforged fiasco where the purists literally and practically removed off the Reforged Campaign toggle just because they were uncomfortable of its existence even though the Classic Campaign wouldn't be affected

    sounds familiar?

    Pandas. Still can't take them serious to this day. I get a sinking feeling going through the MoP zones because of how much work was put into them, and how little work and effort was put into virtually everything else.

    It's hard to beat Med'an, however.
    It's really something how a lot of his stuff has been quietly retconned, or dismissed.

    Hopefully the expanded customization paves the way for more lore developments as "Hey, more elves are joining us!"

    Yeah it skated by on nostalgia for a long time but people are increasingly realising TBC is down there with WoD for the worst lore of any expo.

    Hottest and wrongest take I have ever seen. In a game with talking cows and lawn gnomes, Pandas are a step too far? Mists was peak WoW in terms of feature expansion (and personally, everything else) and from that expac onwards it's been concessions and retraction.

    OT: For canon lore? Sylvannas' entire arc post Wrath. Non canon? Med'an

    The whole stuff about planets being titans, the existence of void lords, demons being immortal etc. Basically a lot of stuff since WoD that sort of happened in a chain
    ...that's just my opinion, anyway.
