    I think that's kinda the point. We're not going on some grand adventure to save whathaveyou, we're just moseying over to help out some friends with housekeeping.

    All the better to escalate things later.

    Used to be liadrin I think blizzard made a fanfic about them canon in tbc or wrath. Guess they didn’t like it in retrospect so threw that plot line away.

    Meh, I'd prefer Liadrin to be honest.

    Like half if not more of the major characters throughout wow have there story’s tied directly to there relationships in one way or another to the point where you’d have to completely rewrite a fair chuck of them if you take away said relationships.

    Avenging, trying to save, following into danger, or being tricked because of one’s love is a key part of wow lore and always Has been kicking off events like introducing the legion to the orcs, brining thrall to Azeroth, thrall taking down Blackmore, How Varian handled the stone cutters and onxyia taking over storm wind, the rebirth of the sunwell, the purge of dalaran, and on and on and on.

    You know, people usually have more than one love interest in their live.

    It's a somewhat rare incidence in the Warcraft universe if you think about it. Varian-Tiffin, Durotan-Draka, Rhonin-Vereesa, Turalyon-Alleria... off the top of my head I can't think of a major character that had multiple romantic interests other than Jaina who had two... or three if her interest in Thrall is canon.

    Honestly I'd love to see if the Titans KNEW about the First Ones. Given their level of power, the length of time they were active, the fact that they could pretty much bend how the other forces work (e.g. Emerald Dream) and their focus on exploration and knowledge, I would expect them to have at least found out partly about them or even fully know they existed, they are gone, it's their playground now.

    Jaina had Arthas and Kalecgos. Thrall would be an interesting case with Taretha but I think Taretha was more like his older sister than anything else.

    I think you're fine just picking up the ones in your zone when you get to it in your leveling journey tbh, at no point did quests in waking shores/plains feel like I needed the extra Vigor etc to be as efficient as possible moving between quests. Haven't reached the rest yet tho.

    Bleh don't even mention Kalecgos. That romance

    Maybe, maybe not if they aren't aware of the realm of Death. But if it was me First Ones would of birthed the concept of Titans(Children of the First ones then children of the Titans which is us sorta haha lol).

    I think they will just never be mentioned again. The concept is just so stupid that the more you think on it the more plot holes it has. Hell if the universe was supposed to be robotic life why the hell is there a robot hell to start with.

    There isn't even any notion that free will should exist much less that there be an afterlife based on it.

    I think the First Ones just wanted to see how the Six Forces would interact. So Titans are pretty much the experiment; the interaction they wanted to observe. Alternatively, they are running away from something and they created this reality in a corner of the cosmos and died defending it (either actively or sacrificed themselves to shield it).

    Nothing implies the First Ones are "dead". They may just be above the idea of Death itself. I doubt when making the Design, you yourself are prone to a force you basically made and balanced.
    The Sepulcher of the First Ones. Why would living things have a Sepulcher?

    Don't forget that for most of them, we've only really seen a fairly small part of their life. They could easily have had other relationships at times we just haven't heard about because they aren't relevant to anything.

  15. #67755
    As for why I mention the Titans, while I expect it will be Elune blessing the Aspects in a lunar conjunction, I kind of hope we will reach out to the Pantheon. The entire story is about the Primals rejecting the work of the Titans well know we actually have access to them. Plus Golganneth never blessed a flight and I am hoping we will see two more flights enter the game in patch content, Nether and Storm, the latter of which is a great match for him (with Thrymjaris as Aspect?)

    On the other hand, it's the place that makes the Afterlife. So it might be more symbolic. Of the First Ones would then just be because they build it. It doesn't feel much like a grave anyway.

    Because its the place where they made the afterlives. As in "the dead go here." If they were dead they would be here, but they're not. But don't get me started on how this is "the Zereth of Death" but also the origin point of all living things because that doesn't make any sense... another point they did not fully think through.

    I think the point is, it doesn't look like a place that is generating afterlives. It very much looks like a place that is prototyping mortal creatures and biomes.

    The Aspects where originally blessed under an Embrace.
    We helped Kalecgos become the new Aspect in the latest one.
    The Oathstones alone don't work to empower the Aspects again.

    So its likely that at one point Elune might force an Embrace and help empower them.

    Steve Danuser says exactly this *several times* during the Zereth Mortis reveal video. I mean, devs are constantly contradicting the lore & this will surely be retconned because he doesn't seem to think through the implications of introducing lore into the setting but he did say it.
