    Because they say so! That's the only reason. No background, no history, no connection. The only connection is Sylvanas, which has become a meme of character now!
    Yes the only connection is definitely Sylvanas, and some useless dude named Arthsomething, what a loser

    Regarding his look, he's threatening enough to me. He's probably even more if you add the helm of domination to what seems to be his regular armor.

    A funny title considering technical behind-the-scenes details...

    No-no, really, it's very difficult to hold back a smile while reading this. I'd even consider it... "most ambitious" contention I guess this is taken from some piece of interview.

    So, you feel threatened by a story yet to be told?

    LOL then!

    Happy that you find him threatening. I found him bland as the first raid boss in any raids!

    Warhammer is a straight rip off of D&D. D&D is a rip off of mythology, pulp fiction, and contemporary fantasy authors of the 1960s and 1970s.

    Are far are we going to go down this rabbit hole? Every piece of fiction is inspired by another piece of fiction. In terms of Warhammer and WoW, they're more so just based off of similar source material.
    My point was his complaint about the jailer being a ripoff was pointless since the whole IP and lore since warcraft 1 has always been nearly straight rip offs.

    Probably blizzard paying them to promote it by pre-releasing cover art.

    Made me chuckle

    They always release months in advance. For Battle For Azeroth there was one with Sylvanas that released in June but was the September issue. Apple vs Epic, Fall Guys, Flight Simulator, etc probably won't be current news by November.

    Why's the Jailor have tusks? Is he Muezella's true form? Somehow related to Trolls or Orcs?

    But you have only seen pictures and a 3d model (not even a raid one) so far
    He's literally as threatening as Bolvar could be, or even Kael'thas (wow, a blood elf, so threatening, what a lame guy). What makes him threatening is his actions and his behavior, which we'll have a glance at in cinematics (potentially). Hard to tell anything from a front cover showing his face.

    But some dude with an angry face, bulky body, chest hole, scars and FROSTMOURNE RUNES on his head is threatening enough to me, as "first picture" we get to see of him.

    So you just made it up. Ok.

    I kind of like that we have someone who's relatively unknown as the big bad of an expansion for a change. To me, a lot of expansions have just felt like going down a check list killing every possible big name we know in lore who can possibly be made into a bad guy so it's nice to have a new face for a change. I do like how the Jailer looks in game better though tbh.

  16. #76
    Wouldn't matter how he looked people would complain anyways.
    Atleast its a new guy and nothing revamped or whos been dragged around for 5 expansions.
    also: no orc so me happy SMorc.

  17. #77
    I don't get why people think he looks bad, looks pretty unique to me. He doesn't look like any other WoW villain really

    - - - Updated - - -

    Important to add all the filters and backgrounds from the actual cinematic aren't present, so of course he looks a bit strange on a plain white background

    Jailer is defined as Titan ++ by Ion. So yeah, I am sure you guys are going to solo farm in a week.

He was built up implicitly.
    I didn't know much back then, but i knew he is going to be threatening and powerful. And he demolished Lordereon easily.

    Then we united and fought back at the end of NE campaign. That was awesome.

    Jailer, where is the build up? who is this guy? We fought Gods and Titans. Why should be scared of him?
    Because they say so! That's the only reason. No background, no history, no connection. The only connection is Sylvanas, which has become a meme of character now!
    Even his look in the CGI doesn't look threatening. He is just a raid boss at the moment. He is not a villain, he is a raid boss.
    - They've started to build him at least since BFA with the Vol'jin quests with the dead leaking into the mortal world.
    - Also Sylvanas secret plan looks like it was related to this.
    - The Afterlives shorts are pointing to him as a threat too (Bastion with "The Maw is leaking!!", Maldraxxas with "something is attacking the Shadowlands" and Ardenweald with "something is drying of the supply of anima").
    - We also get hints at the Nathrezim may being his agents.
    - We'll surely get more exposition during gameplay along the history of the expansion.
    The only diference is that WC3 expose it in about ¿a couple of hours? while this is taking months.

    Actually, no. I don't remember Void-lords being even mentioned outside Chronicles.

    making cinematics with main characters instead of Saurfang and Thrall could make a great difference
