    Ursoc seems to have been one of the last folks to get into the SL (the proper way, at least) before the "machine of death" broke.

    Exactly - the dude was saying Ysera was the last.

    Baros Alexston. A familiar face since the very beginning of the world (of warcraft), his death in Draenor saddened me greatly.

    He didn't die, did he? Best I recall he just turned into a withered, but did not die.

    As for who I want to see in Shadowlands but probably wont:
    • Varian Wrynn;
    • Tirion Fordring;
    • Fandral Staghelm;
    • Admiral Taylor;
    • Arthas Menethil.

    I don't think this is true. The Primus has been referred to as specifically a name, and the Seat of the Primus was where they were found. All of Maldraxxus believed The Primus was located there (that is, if they believed he existed/was there, as at least some of the dialogue suggests some Maldraxxians didn't believe/knew he wasn't there) and if they KNEW that, any of the leaders of Maldraxxus would, of course, want to "prove themselves" the greatest warrior.

    But that's not how Maldraxxus went as a story. In fact, each of the houses held a rune which would have allowed any of them to enter the Seat at any time - But none tried, because the Primus was only to be awoken in a crisis. Nobody sought to usurp The Primus, ever.

    A wild bootlicker appears. Hey no offense but your opinion is garbage if you really think this story isn't convoluted, scrapped together garbage - some half-baked attempt at pandering to nostalgia, pulled from the same cringy cesspool our interdimensional time travel expansion came from.

    If only the atrocity that is WoD never happened it would have been cool to see Grom in Maldraxxus. They've completely driven his character into the ground though.

    Brox being the primus would be so metal! I hope they do it!

    I thought that the Seat could only be opened with all five keys together, in order to prevent any random dickhead *cough* Vyraz *cough* from taking things into his/her own hands and !@#$ing everything up.

    Broxigar for sure. Varian to really provide some oomph to Anduin's predicament.

    As far as I know, there just wasn't much reason for the Runeblade other than opening the seat of the Primus. And the seat was only meant to contain the Primus himself - I don't recall ever hearing about any power or might behind it.

    Basically, just that only a fighter who exemplified all of the aspects of the perfect warrior like the Primus should have been capable of it - Because the houses were meant to work together, and grant the runes to those who sought them. That's what I understood from it anyway.

    Gul'dan. No redemption arc, no remorse just the utter villain we've come to know and love.

    Paragons of the klaxxi would be interesting to meet and see how emo they are after we kicked their asses and slew their god.
    Now that i think on it, have we seen any mantid/aqir anywhere in shadowlands?

    What about elementals? We killed Rag in his home, doesnt that mean that hes dead?

    Weve seen Ysera so i guess Neltharion/DW should be somewhere aswell?

    We know demons doesnt go to the afterlife but what about old gods?
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

    Which is weird. Ursoc died in the raid after Ysera BUT Ysera somehow managed to stick around and buff us during the Xavius fight so perhaps she stayed around in the emerald dream for a moment before finally passing.

    Or most likely, Blizzard just screwed it up because they hadn't considered how death functions back then since we saw multiple people who had only been killed very recently be around in the Emerald Dream instead of being send to Ardenweald. Which really tells you how much they care about the lore since usually when you make a campaign setting, figuring out how death works is pretty early concept stuff. And we still don't even know how it works in WoW. Not for elementals, not for demons, not for creatures with a strong connection to one of the other primary forces (Order, Chaos, Void, Light, Life). We don't know how undeath actually works (for sentient undead at least that seem to anchor their souls on the material). And judging by previous expansions, we will likely never really find out most of these answers.

    She isn't dead though.

    As for Brox being the Primus . . . I mean he is a cool warrior but he is definitely not the strongest warrior we've ever seen in Warcraft. That would probably be Toranaar.

    It's up in the air tbh. Many Azeroth races are direct descendants of titan constructs yet they do have souls. I believe that a rule of thumb is, if something has independent conscience it has a soul. The only exception I've seen so far is dredgers who openly admit that they're soulless.

    Yep, that's the reason. The problem with Blizzard writing is they seldom try to make new stuff work with old stuff. Instead, they just put new stuff on top and call it a day. I have no issue with us having unreliable narrators within the game, but when Blizzard themselves are one it just ruins everything.

Otherwise everyone that was killed by a random Chaos Bolt would be going to the TN.
    It's not even all demon hunters, the only ones who are known to have developed a demon soul are Illidan and player character. The souls of regular demon hunters can be found within the Maw.

    A mantid warrior soul occasionally appears in the "Limbo" world quest in Bastion. Kyrian had no issue with him being a spawn of an Old God.

    A soul of a fire elemental also appears in the said world quest. It was sent back because it belonged to the Firelands. When elementals die within their home realm, it's game over for them. Ragnaros is gone for good.

    I don't see why not unless the Dragon Soul disintegrated both his body and soul.

    Old Gods are Void creations so they're bound to it.

    Well we know for demons that they go to the Twisting Nether to respawn. My personal theory is that the Twisting Nether itself is actually another "Shadowland" and all demons are sent there as basically a demonic Ardenweald. This would explain why demons are sent there and respawn, can have this process sped up by feeding anima into them (ie, siphoning power from the titan Argus), and give a logical reason for the whole "all demons from all timelines are one" kind of nonsense that they've also established in Shadowlands for alternate versions of the same soul going to the Shadowlands upon their personal death. It would explain what they put out years back when people were like, BUT ARCHIMONDE IS DEAD?. This would also explain why killing a demon inside the Twisting Nether results in a permanent death for them; you're essentially killing their soul inside of their Shadowland.

    I'm also still of the opinion that alternate timeline souls are sent to Bastion to forget their memories to avoid weird interactions of alternate timeline souls running into their main timeline selves as well; ie, Garrosh from the MU is in Revendreth but any AU Garrosh would be sent to Bastion to forget their memories and become a Kyrian.
