    You just really need a set of your favourite tunes on your phone.

    I think GH is memorable more because it's out there and not like anything else, rather than because it's good. Like how I imagine most people also remember Kara's harpsichord music, or WoD's Auchidoun music (though they might not recognize it by that name alone), or the Kazoo inn music from MoP.

    Honestly none of those you mentioned ring a bell. I place GH up there with iconic themes like Elywnn Forest, Westfall, Dun Murough, Loch Modan, Barrens etc

    But I'll give SP a listen.

    I'll never forget how the first few mins of this track made me feel. So curious about whats out there, all the mysteries we could find and discover. Made me so hopeful for the future.

    You know, even though Brower's era had a lot of memorable music - especially ambient music - there's still plenty of good tracks here and there.

    Even though I kinda prefer the ambient music compared to the "flashy" one when it comes to Warcraft, there's still some tracks that are just too good to ignore.

    Like this that plays in Boralus that doesn't even have a name.



    Or this Zin-Azshari theme... Hell, most of the music in that patch was really good.

    I think it's a good theme, but ultimately they instil different emotions and state of mind.

    GH theme is about stillness, contentment and enjoying a day in a simple life.

    SP starts and ends in an ominous fashion with mid section that's about, i dunno, a mix of splendour and discovery

    I've watched the cinematic again and again and I wonder.

    Alexstrasza said "Hidden even from our own eyes", so how did they managed to go back to the Dragon Isles to awaken the guardians ? (we can clearly see Kalec using his blue magic to do it)

    They didn't. The dragons are nowhere to be seen when Stoneboy wakes up. They only show up after he reactivated the beacon and was falling to his death.

    We probably find out where the Dragon Isles are. We are going to Uldaman where the Disks of Norgannon are; the Disks constantly record the history of Azeroth.

    Maybe it has to be something done with the consent of the aspects, like they get them all together to hit the "big red button" that awakens the watchers. Could also be an interesting setup to get Wrathion to finally have to involve himself with the other aspects, and give Merithra some more spotlight.

    Which then begs the question how the hell they arrived on the island seconds after he activated the beacon, but that's just the usual rule of cool in action. :v

    ???

    They didn't awaken the guardians, the isles stirred on their own thanks to whatever caused that earthquake.
    Then Koranos went and started up the spire in Tyrhold.

    When you roll with Bronze dragons, time isn’t a big deal.

    Since the guardians were waiting for some sort of activation signal, my guess is we are going to Uldaman either for some random reason or Alex sends us specifically for this and we activate the signal to reactivate the watchers.

    Also I assume the dragons knew the general location but couldn't enter the mist, since we see them quickly flying over the isles after the mist goes away (quick enough for alex to save stoneboi

    Being a dragon is the big selling point. If they remove that then making it its own race is kinda pointless when they could just make it a class that gets extra customization options like DK or DH.

    But part of being a warcraft dragon is choosing what visage you identify with the most. That's a part of their culture.

    You'd still be a dragon when it matters, but outside of combat you have a range of humanoid races to choose from

    I mean, they should know where the islands are supposed to be. They just couldn't get to their actual location without the beacon.

    Also, that's not begging the question.

    I have a feeling that “visage options” is going to be the new “DH restricted to elves” issue.

    Well, the aspects are already here ... Why would the sky be red/blue/green ?



    And why does the see suddenly turn to blue ?
