    They use future mob creatures as mounts.

    Enchanted Fey Dragon - wod mob
    Luminous Starseeker - Argus mob
    Mystic Runesaber - Suramar Manasaber
    Vulpine Familiar/Silverian Dreamer - Shadowlands mobs

    I think it's high time to stop treating a video game expansion as a some kind of PTSD source. It's getting ridiculous.

    Sorry, but WoD was atrocious, the lore, the garrisons, the abandonment of the expansion. Nothing about it deserves to be romanticized just because BFA was equally bad if not worse. WoW fans have a tendency to do that, like Cata for example, I'd say most people don't even hate Cata anymore.

    Yes. We get that. It was said thousand times. Still, it was no scarring experience like so many claim it is and Yrel will be back at some point, so we better get over it and move on.

    As I told you already you're late. Blizzard already revisited WoD in 2018, where they revealed that Yrel and the Draenei went "crazy" and conquered the planet.

    From that moment forward, it was obvious that the Draenei of the AU universe would be used again. Recently the Alliance has seen a change in leadership, with Turalyon becoming Regent Lord and Alleria by his side. What do you think Blizzard is setting up?
    Some will tell you that the Light is the only path. The only weapon that can stop the enemies of Azeroth. But we see alternatives. Many roads, many possibilities, that are open to us. There will be those who doubt you. Who question your resolve, your ability to harness powers that have caused the downfall of weaker wills. Together, we will prove them wrong.

    Hopefully Yrel died off screen unceremoniously after slipping on a banana peel.

    AU stories are just awful, especially when literally every time blizzard explains more of it, the lore just gets worse. Example: The Danuser Shadowlands AU "rope" explanation.

    Also, Turalyon doesn't seem as fanatical as the fanbase makes him out to be, with his only real episode of fanaticism was dealt with on Argus with Illidan

    He got away from Naaru influence in that cinematic. Now he is an Alliance boy.

    And I personally like Yrel change. Peeps were snoring at yet another goody two-shoes character, and now she is a walking proof that any good teachings can be twisted and everyone can be manipulated.

    In that case, make Yrel join the Alliance. The Alliance needs more hardcore characters like Tyrande when it comes to the Horde in particular. Turalyon to me, seems like he will join the cast of goody two shoes characters, but I guess we'll see. I'm fine as long as he doesn't get villainbatted.

    People whine about a lot of things, doesn't mean they are correct, not that I hate using WoD stuff(I don't care either way).

    A "convert or die" doesn't fit current, she would first start with forcing every Alliance member into getting Lightforge treatment.

    It would actually be kinda cool to see Turalyon and the Lightforged Draenei forcing everyone to lightforge, kinda like what King Mechagon was doing with mechanization.

    The Alliance is in desperate need of more edge, especially with what's happening to Tyrande right now in the PTR.

    While I dislike WoD (though did enjoy the Draenei elements), I'm all for Yrel making a return, particularly as a villain, if that means we'll get Light and Draenei-based gear from it. Gimme more of that.

    Personal taste though, of course.

  15. #2455
    Oh yeah, store mount is 99% certain to launch with 9.1, cause they are doing them every 6 months. It's very likely it will be first hint about 10.0.

    Took a step forward, took a step backward. It's in the same spot it was in before 8.1.

    Zandalar is in shambles, Kul'tiras is just Kul'tiras, N'zoth is in hiding, Azshara is in hiding. Nothing actually happened.

    No thats not true, you are omitting changes within both Kul'tiras, Zandalar and Aszhara to fit your argument.

    Who said anything about Turalyon being fanatical? If anything Yrel serves as foil for Turalyon, because while Yrel is a Naaru fanatic, Turalyon is not.

    He wasn't even fanatical on Argus, Illidan the half-demon mongrel literally destroyed the Light Goddess in front of Turalyon (Paladin of the Light), of course Turalyon would react aggressively lol.

    Lothraxion being among the last remaining Dreadlords and manipulating Turalyon to control SW and forge a new Alliance would be so fucking badass. Would also mark why Dreadlords are incredibly dangerous from an in-game perspective.

    N'Zoth is dead, Azshara is freed from his grasp, Kul'tiras finally has a stable leadership and is free of corruption, and Zandalar's rid of the Blood Troll threat, G'huun, as well as most of the protesters within the area. Did you just not play BFA?

    That's like saying none of the MoP zones changed or shit like that. They clearly did bro.

    Kind of echoes Sylvanas having Varimathras way back when too.

    I like it, actually.
