    also no, the fire does not, we literally have an overhead view.

    "The audio has people panicking" yeah.. like they would... if there was ANY fire...
    also funny, for fires that are aparently so huge they apparently covered the whole city, it sure did take jaina till the very last second to even notice them, even though she was chasing them through the city, but sure yeah, ok.

    and yeah 3 torches can do a lot, fire spreads well, especially in gasp wood.

    also "never used in actual warfronts" what the fuck are you talking about? have you actually done the warfronts? the horde use a fair few flamethrowers, flaming catapults, flaming slag, and even fire elementals, i feel like you are just trying to be obtuse.

    also what kinda absolute bullshit are you trying to spread.
    "makes a great smoke cloud"

    nah... not really...

    that really isnt that much smoke... have you seen actual fires? small fires can make a fair bit of smoke. this amount of smoke looks pretty average for the ya know, fires shown on screen, especially since we get a second or two to see the city in the background, and there is no smoke or fire there, cause remember all of the burning happened in the cathedral district and the harbor... so those are the only places with fire...

    idk how in the fucking world you think a few fires in the cathedral somehow spread to the entire city, but magically dont show up.

    You can literally see the cathedral in the background perfectly fine, not even covered in fire or smoke.

    its really funny how desperately try to convince people that the sky is not blue xD

    Yeah it definitely also wasn’t because it was the closest and the easiest to get catapults too either.

    Not sure what you mean about an island. It was a tree planted on an island. We never saw any active defense of it by anything, druid, wisp, or otherwise. And the only enchantments were placed by Aspects who had since lost their power. It's a huge tree made by mortal magic users. Versus incendiary titan blood.

But in lore, it's just not that easy.
    Going on hearthstones, they're absurdly rare artifacts. Varian Wrynn in a story taking place in early Cataclysm had never seen one, assuming they were from "stories about elves and mages." Yet every player begins with one in the bags. As for the portals, even in lore it's limited. For instance in WoD we help Khadgar establish a portal back to Azeroth to bring in troops and supplies, but it was clearly spelled out as a portal that could not be kept open permanently and could not bring in large objects. We could bring in men a bit at a time, then use native resources to build one garrison and one town (Warspear).
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

I have little doubt that multiple cannonballs worth of the stuff could burn down Teldrassil, which is not nearly as magical as you seem to believe. It's a tree that was grown by mortal druids, that's all.
    To be fair they walked through those zones in order to make the alliance think they were marching somewhere they weren't at first (silithus) and then did a turn in the barrens to go north and pushed right up into darkshore AFTER the night elves had sent their entire fleet via boat down towards silithus.

    I was talking about them having to fight all the way through Ashenvale and Darkshore. There was a stalemate at the big north/south river that elves held for a while. Then they had to destroy Astranaar. Then they tried to get into Darkshore but got stopped by the wisp wall. It was at this point that Saurfang was ordered to go up through Felwood and come down the mountains while the rest tried to bring down the wall. It was very involved. No portalling anywhere like the guy I was talking to mentioned.
