    Ehhh not a fan of these covenant / afterlife things. Would she not have died and went on to some Orc place along with other warriors? Also why her out of all the other fallen heroes that have been bigged up over the years to be the bee's knees. It just seems a horrid mess i hope it pans out but it feels forced and messy this time more than it normally does.

    I hope they don't split the story between multiple things again and at least tell it in the game in full FOR BOTH FACTIONS!. It sucks when they put huge chunks in books, mini videos, and in game locked behind the other faction. It can be in other things also but it should be all in game and accessible for all those playing.

    I liked it. It's a good piece of preview content for the story, and I expect we'll hear more as we travel through the zone.

    Feels weird to accept that. Blizz has been cheap from time to time, but this is a new level of low. If anything, their art is one of their strongest suits.

    It became clear that it wasn’t realistic to try to get the audience back to being more hardcore, as it had been in the past. -- Tom Chilton

    They even had her say "It doesn't make any sense for me to be here, I'm just a token Orc so the Horde feels like they have a reason to play the expansion".

    After seeing the first one this one is just so bad by comparison. Thrall's mom is a Maldraxus assassin, so what?

    I get the feeling these shorts have been made very recently. They probably had several options for what to do with them, and waited until they had some feedback from beta to choose the theme.

    Be glad they chose Covenants, I'm sure one of their options was having four different shorts showing the day to day life of Sylvanas.

    That made me laugh. Can definitely picture how they would actually do that. xD

    I THOUGHT they looked like Felguards!

    She would not have been ambushed like that if Blizzard just allowed flying from the beginning......

    but then she wouldnt have been dazed and dismounted, so she had to kill a bunch of annoying mobs and get a bag full of crap to bring to the guy.

    I wouldnt be triggered by copy-paste so much if it didnt damage the story.

    The shot is clearly the same one from Illidan cinematic. Same angle, guards stand in the very same position.

    I know it supposed to not be the same place, but shot directly points at Draka visiting the same Pit-Lord Castle Illidan and Co visited. Why and how?

    At the very same time at the very same place so the angles are 100% identical. One may say that just coincidence and she luckily visited the same place before Illidan (i guess) and all details just were the same, even the way guards held their weapon. This is such a stretch and makes so little sense. And she stole some plans and left. What? Pit-Lord hold plans written on paper? Funny.

    That cheap move directly damages the logic of the story. They should have paid extra 200 bucks to artist to make the original shot.

    It is as boring as the Bastion one.

    The afterlives are so much worse than the BFA Warbringers.

    Well, it was pretty good, because unlike Uther, they show her as someone who took her duty in Shadowlands, with Uther they showed us that not every character will take it in a matter of seconds plus they showed some kind of story, in Bastion it was more like what's the duty

    This was boring. And i don't know wth was going on or why i should care.

    Someone pointed this out and... I can't say 100% for sure it's true but would it be surprising? Remember the whole Red Shirt Guy deal way back?

    Geeeeeeeeeeeeeezus ...
    These Afterlives stories are really well done.

    Makes sense. They should have killed Garona a while ago anyways. Her character is just background noise.

    This is why I can't really invest myself in the game lore anymore. They're just making this all up as they go along. Rather than committing to stories they're drawing up whole swaths of cloth and making something new to consume and discard later.

    Man, people are complaining about alot about forced strong female warrior and w/e. But she was calling someone else "my lord" and she seemed pretty loyal and adamant on following orders.

    Edit: Don't compare this to crap like Rey sKyWaLkEr, it's not. It's way better.
