    But yeah, with how they wrote her so far being merely imprisoned to be recycled later after we beat her into submission is just as likely, and there's always the redemption angle but IMO they're saving that for big boy Arthas, with a side dish of Kael, while Anduin moonlights as the crazy person we beat the evil out of at some point or another. I don't think they will actually kill Sylvanas in a X.1 patch. Then again they did kill Varian and Garrosh in a X.0 one and Illidan (at the time) in a X.1 too so who knows.
    Whether she dies or not I'm hard pressed to believe she won't reappear in some form further on. I was firmly convinced they'd just Gul'dan her early on with the way she was set up in BFA and how little of a role she played in the expansion to build up the Blue Man, and I might still be right, but the Jailer still has very little setup and I can't see him sustaining a story for the rest of the expansion. Then again, that's basically what happened to Gul'dan too, with how terribly KJ was handled and how Argus essentially had no main antagonist.

    At this stage it's too late for my preferred option, that is having her take over for the Jailer and be the end boss, with the remaining options of being Gul'dan'd or redeemed both being shit for fairly obvious reasons. To clarify, and to @ohwell she takes a guy who rules a hell dimension of constant torture speaking entirely in evil one liners as being especially interested in justice and dies as a footnote for this bore after fifteen years in this franchise, or alternatively, she's so easily shaken in the beliefs she burnt a city of kids for by Anduin, someone with whom she has no particular connection save sexual tension in two cinematics, that she switches sides and joins up with people who should by rights still want her dead.

    @Magical Mudcrab

    This is the only solution I agree with. Then he'd lecture Anduin about trusting inhuman beasts.

    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    The PC has been a special character(no longer just some rando soldier) for quite a while now.

    No. I, in fact, do not get tired of it. Why?

    Tyrande exists for no reason other than to kill Sylvanas at this point, that is her storyline and it's not complete until then. I fully expect something like that.

    I voted for Tyrande but in fact, probably more Zovaal. Would be poetic that Zovaal abandons her and shreds her to pieces for having failed something, or simply because she's no longer useful

    She is defeated, sylvanas gets last laugh and activates her final ploy, something happens, shes prepared for death (its like everyone forgets she killed herself and everything she has done since has been to get a happy afterlife) and tyrande steps in and shackles her instead of killing her, sentencing her to eternal imprisonment, putting her on ice till blizz need her again like illidan

  7. #87
    Tyrande, no doubt.

    Lets say you go to burger king often. You dislike the taste of the food but you still go there and eat for whatever arbitary reason you have.
    Every time you are there, you tell the other people there, that you think the food objectively tastes like shit. Noone asked for your opinion, you just tell it to them. Time after time - while sitting there - eating the food.

    Its weird. Thats why.

    She won't die - it is obvious as hell. All these scenes with her doubting and chatting with Anduin are preparing us for her Kerrigan-ish redemption arc. This should be obvious to all tbh.

    I want Garithos to take his revenge.

    Also there seems to be a pattern with getting rid of previous antagonists on current expansion .1, like Garrosh, Gul'dan then Sylvanas
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Alliance's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    But no one gives a shit about Tyrande. And Tyrande isn't a ca$h cow like Sylvanas is.

    She has already died three times.

    1. Death by Arthas
    2. Suicide after death of Arthas
    3. Killed by Godfrey in Silverpine

    Who's going to land the killing blow if she does die and how does WoW go on with their 2nd most famous and most iconic female character gone?

    Mod Edit: Don't use giant fonts in this fashion.
    Baine has an undead-slaying hammer doesn't he?
    Seems like he could do the honors, just so Blizz can say "We surprised ya, didn't we?".

    Like all those characters would be in some grand melee, being as busy with eachother as they are with Sylvanas and Baine just arrives late or something and goes *bonk* and kills Sylvanas.

    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Thinking abouyt it I do guess Tyrande not killing Sylvanas would be the best. That way we get an even further delve into her descent into insanity as she did not even get to kill the person that destroyed her people.

    But by god do I hope they off Sylvanas. Redemption arc being teased or no it would just be a gross injustice on the art of writing in general, not ot mention her character arc.
    Sylvanas is already the most schizophrenically written character, flipping between blind revenge, back to somewhat positive, back to petty bitch in Cata, then to the lowest of evils in BtS and BfA with killing her own people and burning Teldrassil. Somehow having her character do a full 180 back to redemption after such a long time of being the preeminent evil of Azeorth would be so far beyond bad writing as to be comical.

    they need to be careful here

    WoW will be dead for many if this char goes

    very old players are very bored with the game and any reason to quit will make them quit

    The going theory on that is either that A. her deth to Godfrey didnt count since it was such a brief death, or B. her death to Arthas didnt count since that was the death fo Sylvanas, and after that she became the Banshee Queen.
    It isnt the perfect theory, but there is some validity to it.

    1- a disgusting horrible character like her get removed is improvement to wow, not deterioration
    2- don't give a f8ck as long she f8cking DIES

    I'd love to see Tyrande do it...but more and more I doubt she dies, she is likely to be redeemed because you wouldn't want to anger all the people who...."admire" Sylvanas
