    The Jailer is Illidan 2.0
    I think the difference here is that the Jailer and Sylvanas have yet to give a real reason why the current system is so horrible. At best it just looks like Sylvanas is pissy that she cannot go to heaven after being evil.

    More importantly though is that the solution they seemingly give is to just destroy everything and kill everyone.


    One of the gravest sins a writer can make is to have a resolution be at odds with the way the story is told. If a story is about a foster kid who gains friends and a loving family through a caring system you cannot then have the resolution be that the foster system is terrible.
    Similarly the story in Shadowlands is that everyone goes to a fair afterlife, with at worst a few stragglers that are misjudged, mostly based around the Kyrians. You cannot then have the story end by telling us that this is not how it is supposed to work. We have yet to even see a fundamental flaw in how the afterlife works that needs rectifying outside the specific case of the Kyrians, and even then it seems more that the problem is that they don't want to give massive powers to those that intend ot use it for the wrong reasons.

    Tbh I'd love it if it turned out Sylvanas was just a pawn in the Jailer's game and he never meant to realize the plan she's been working on. That all he really cared about is claiming Azeroth the titan (because for some time now there have been implications that Azeroth is the most important thing in the universe). And he just used Sylvanas to free himself and in his vision of the future he's the master of the universe and everyone ends as a nameless soul-fuel, Sylvanas included. What a shock it would be to her.

    What really got me into this idea was the confirmation that the Nathrezim are under Denathrius' command. Whether he's their master or the Jailer is (and Denathrius is just THE main Nathrezim) is to be found out. But what we know is the Nathrezim pushed Sargeras into the Burning Crusade with claiming the Azeroth titan as an end goal. Maybe the plan was for Sargeras to claim it in the name of the Jailer (either willingly or not)? And since Sargeras failed, the Jailer decided to work on plan B (which, suspiciously, starts with Argus' death and that weird red blast pacifying the Arbiter)?

    My guess is Oribos will be destroyed in 8.1 and a cleared out Tazavesh will be our new main city.
    That would be cool, though I think that probably Jailer will storm through Oribos and move on to Azeroth - he seems to want to break out of Shadowlands.

    As a matter of fact, I almost expect the last raid to be Anduin returning to Stormwind, Arthas style, to take it for Jailer.

    This could be a bit too dramatic and I'm sure there's one particular user who'd hate the idea, but... How cool it'd be if Anduin, under the Jailer's control, killed both Turalyon and Alleria? This would be both very personal and emotional, and the Jailer would prove the Death's dominion over the Light and the Void.

    Seems like overkill to have him kill Turalyon or Alleria, never mind both.

    Would be great to have him return to Stormwind and we have to stop him though.

    I believe this is what will happen.

    Ahh, so redemption it is. I just hope that the whole story will not turn me off like it did in BFA where I completely lost my will and purpose. I still wanna help Odyn to recover his eye though. I think the Jailer is using it. Also the Halls of Valor pretty much resembles Elysian Hold in Bastion. I have been always thinking that I have seen this somewhere. Now I know it.

    I just saw it when Asmongold explored the new zone. Here is a video with Timestamp.
    The architecture, especially the inner circle looks just like Oribos.

    I literally expect the SW invasion shit to be the 10.0 pre-patch. Also, the Jailer wants to escape the Maw, that's it. He wants total control over the Shadowlands and Death atm, however.

    Alleria and Turalyon are the most popular and iconic WC2 characters, Blizzard isn't going to kill them, and especially not that easily.
    Some will tell you that the Light is the only path. The only weapon that can stop the enemies of Azeroth. But we see alternatives. Many roads, many possibilities, that are open to us. There will be those who doubt you. Who question your resolve, your ability to harness powers that have caused the downfall of weaker wills. Together, we will prove them wrong.

    No.

    Korthia is the portion of the land where oribos' base was originally attached to. Until they sunk that mass.

    That is literally not the case.

    Let's not go that far. Besides, Sylvanas is essentially a throwaway at the end of the day. The Jailer's the big boi.

    uhm,is that why every other woman villain in wow was also killed or defeated?the only one that didnt ''die'' was azshara,but she was basicaly taken by nzoth as a gimmick in the next raid,and wile she also caused much bad stuff to happen,its never rly shown and told as directly as with sylvanas

    there is no ''sjw/woke/dogwhistle that will redeem sylvanas from burning innocent kids alive

    full send the purpose is the thing that keeps making me think the afterlife was compromised by order constructs many eons ago. the whole thing is FAR too "ordered" to be death based. im sure zovaal is absolutely heinously evil, and whatever he did to get banished makes him deserve death, but im sure hes also correct that death is not currently in charge of the SL.

    i am extremely cool w zovaal going down and sylvanas getting sent to her own pocket afterlife to have her actual life where she can fade from existence whenever she's done, think the ending of the good place. send nathanos there too so she has a companion. she's just definitely not welcome back on azeroth and that's ok. then winter queen+primus+kyrestia+renathal can re-evaluate what the shadowlands looks like and have some long, thought out discussions about being blind to the puRpOsE

    yeah, just like we arent going to kill ner'zhul, one of the main characters in Wc2 AND Wc3, as a random throw-away raidboss next patch or kel'thuzad, fan favourite since Wc3
    dont fool urself, blizz doesnt give a fuck about the legacy of the characters, if their names arent arthas, illidan or sylvanas
    The crooked shitposter with no eyes is watching from the endless thread.

    From the space that is everywhere and nowhere, the crooked shitposter feasts on memes.

    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Question. If during this raid the Jailer goes to Oribos and Sylvanas destroys torghast (or somethin) are people really expecting two more patches out of this story?

    Nope. From a cosmic standpoint maybe. From a franchise standpoint? The Jailer is a fucking nobody while Sylvanas is one of the faces of WarCraft, featuring in more opening cinematics than any other character.

    A revamp of Northrend for one patch? I doubt it.

    No. I've been speculating for some time that this will be another 2 patch expansion like WoD.

    And it doesn't necessarily correlate to lore either. It's easy to see why marketing-wise it'd be smarter to push for a 2 patch expansion. 9.1 is already coming very late, 10.0 would have to come out in 2023 if they intend to push for a 9.3 patch... and that's simply too late for a new expansion, it would mean a significant money loss for Activision Blizzard.

    Seems like the story is already wrapping up to. Jailer is literally attacking Oribos where the final key is (Arbiter), it doesn't take a genius to figure out 9.2 is likely going to be the final patch of Shadowlands.
