    Emma is there because Calia is close to her after the Before the Storm novel. Not really a stretch to assume that Calia helped Emma get into Oribos to see if she could find her sons.

    Yes, it's a stretch.

    When Alleria, the first of the Ren'dorei, who can tear open Dimensional rifts to go anywhere she wants, was nowhere to be seen in Shadowlands.

    Just your usual Anti-Ren'dorei bias from Blizzard. It wasn't enough that the Ren'dorei were shafted in 8.3 for Anduin's boyfriend.

    Indeed it is. It's guessing and estimating how they approach things.

    The placement of the guards certainly doesn't make it look like they're throwing a party for her.

    Dont know if anyone has posted this, but it appears that Sylvanas will be a person of importance after the raid?
    If those images don’t end with someone spartan kicking her off the edge into the maw, I don’t want it.

    In that crowd shot, does anyone see Pelagos? I think that's him near Vereesa and Alleria but I'm not 100%.

    Also interesting that Tyrande is no where to be seen.

    edit: I'm blind, found her.

    why does lore look so stupid? funny to see new writers can't create new characters, absolutely no talented writers!

    - just create a trilogy of three expansions

    -create a timeline

    -first expansion --- character 17-20 years old

    -second expansion--- character 28-30 years old

    -third expansion ---- character 40-55 years old


    ---------------- new trilogy -----------------------

    one hundred years later

    Too much shit happened in 5 years
    cataclysm
    scourge invasion
    demon invasion twice
    two faction wars
    death invasion


    Blizzard has really bad marketers, people like simple stories.
    do you know that

    -shipper war is 40% of forum discussion ( just put the love triangle Nice Guy + Heroine + Bad Guy, and the forum explodes)

    -simple characters without 3D chess

    - more young characters

    The problem is not that writers cant write new characters, it's just that the fanbase is Marvel-tier level of manchildren who only want to see old things they recognize.

    Just look at everyone wanting Arthas to show up, and everyone spamming "who" when there's any kind of story involvement with a new character

    No thanks, I don't want my characters to end up either dead or beeing between 60 or 120 or whatever you wanna do there. Horrible ideas.

    This is true in comic books but their respective superheroes are something that IMO shouldn't be replaced by a new one. I feel differently when it comes to Warcraft but I'm not a fan of tokenism and well thats an entirely different industry and well its not about wow so its off topic.

    you cannot milk a character indefinitely. Arthas is a simple character, just create a new character with this archetype.

    your character is just a camera man, it is foolish to write a story about an "nameless hero".
    you are just soldier № 123 who will die in 1-2 expansions and will be replaced by soldier № 124

    You just argued the entire RPG genre, a genre known for its story choices, is pointless.

    I think you illustrated where wow has lost its way.

    Calling it now, Sylvanas new Jailer. Zovaal is gone and the Maw needs its mommy.

    They have Se'ra now. That Naaru that raises people as forsaken for some reason. Probably because she used to be a void lord.

    All the covenant leaders now agree the Maw should not exist. And it only exists because of their decree. Why would it still exist after we defeat the jailer?

    No? I can decide what my character is, thanks for the "help".
