    Spoilers: Anduin's captivity

    So i finished one of the longest runs in Torghast, was about 17 floors, anyway Bolvar sends you to find clues to Anduin's wearabouts.

    After you get these clues, this interaction ensues.

    In the quest Blurb after I hand in, Bolvar says that we cannot allow Sylvannas to carry out her plans. Then this interaction between Thrall, Baine, Jaina, Calia and Bolvar takes place.

    So what's the deal? they trying to corrupt Anduin? What makes him so special?




    Fyi: There's a cut scene but they don't show it, just a place holder. This activates after Bolvar tells you to attune to the helm so he could peer inside the maw.

    Wait... they are calling the player "Maw Walker"? God that's bad. I just assumed you'd be called something related to your covenant like in legion you were the "DEATHLORD" or whatever title your class got.

    Sylvanas was toying with him? Breaking everything? Well now, that sounds like nice premise for a femdom shota hentai if i ever saw one.

    yeah the jailer gets talked about like he is the boogeyman of the shadowlands, the maw is the dreadful place everybody is afraid of getting sent to, and nobody has ever come back from it

    so of course you're the only one capable of achieving exactly that cause you are awesome

    seems to me like it's supposed to mirror arthas breaking bolvar

    blizzard and not being able to come up with something new

    I mean the jailer is basically just like the new lich king

    pretty much same role, same function, but he's like the lich king behind the lich king

    Yeah... I wish they'd just give us the option to choose how npcs refer to the player character, I'd much rather they just call me by my name, or my order hall title, or my oldschool PvP rank or even just "champion" or "hero" again... something, anything, just let us choose how we wish to be addressed, because I don't want to be referred to by the cringeworthy title "maw walker" for an entire expansion...

    Nah, Maiev + Illidank was a much better version

    More on topic, another expansion getting to hear about Purity Sue Anduin, and to witness every single character drooling over him, - even if he's physically absent. Yay

    I wanted Alleria and Turalyon but this is fine I guess

    on topic: why do I feel like Anduin is being set up as Arthas 2.0 ?
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Horde's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    Well his father was like half wolf or something. Maybe Anduin will echo that sort of thing by becoming half cow or half cockroach.

    Ah there's the endgame, Anduin will redeem the Lich Queen and the Jailer with the power of his nontoxic masculinity! By the Power of Soy!

    We already have a half-cow Anduin.

    I take it back, BfA is not the lowest the games lore could have gone, this thread proves that.

    Manduin, an Arthas reenactment? Hardly. If anything, he's being set up as an anti-Arthas, i.e. what Arthas could have been had he not gone full Darth Vader. Much like Varian was introduced with the sole purpose of being the "good" counterpart to Garry.

    Well, he WAS her counterpart and rival for two expansions. He's also a prominent Light-wielder, while Sylvanas has thrown in evil.
    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.

    He's special because he's a Mary Sue. A Gary Stu if you will. Bleh. Having Sylvanas get so worked up about him is frankly insulting to her.

    Can't they just call us "Jeff" or something like that after all these years?

    People forget that Anduin can wield both Light and Shadow. In MoP, he used Mind Control to bend the brain of a lowly dwarf. The Jailer is trying to twist Anduin into embracing the Void and discarding the Light, perhaps hoping that this would throw the Alliance into jeopardy. Imagine if the High King of Stormwind embraced the shadows, such scandal! The Ren'dorei can get away with it because they are a rather low-profile sect of elves, but Anduin certainly doesn't have that luxury.

    I will tell you what I told my own son when he picked up his first blade and played at being a soldier. Whatever your elders have told you... War is not glory. War is seeing people at their very worst and choosing to protect them anyway.

    At this point, it wouldn't really make a difference. They have removed all gravity from the setting.

    Shadow spec Anduin incoming

    shadow priests are the op class of shadowlands, maybe that's a clue
    Shadowlands is real world
    The Maw is China
    The Jailer is China government
    Sylvanas is Blizz

    "Moo walker"... Blizzard is just trolling us for not being able to mount up in the Maw, at least not straight away :P
