    Admittedly, I can agree with this. Taelia could be good because they've never really done much with her. She's a blank slate whose personality can be developed more. Sylvanas' new shift in personality, on the other hand, is pretty banal. People who do nothing but whine about how life is terrible and unfair because bad things happened to them already annoy me in real life - I don't see who would want to hear nihilistic edgelords spewing cringe when they're trying to escape from reality, too.

    Actually, he is confirmed to be straight. He likes Draenei women and Christie further confirmed it.

    All I can say is that Sylvannas has lived her usefullness. The only people who are left liking her are people who want to play a villain but are actually playing a wrong game because Warcraft follows like most fantasy games the trend of good beating evil. At this point Sylvannas is like a force fed trash that appeals to only a small part in the expense of all the rest who are tired of her presence. It's time we kill her in this raid and move on with the Jailer and see if he can be developed even better as other characters also.

    Trust me I am in agreement in Sylvanas more-or-less sucking up the spotlight, but Taelia specifically is not very interesting nor offers really anything more than Sylvanas does currently. Granted she's very new to the story, only being introduced last expansion, but if Blizzard wanted to use her more, they would have already.


    Which is not to say they do not have plans for her. I'm sure they do. She's just not that important at the moment.

    With a secret kink for Dwarf women. Anduin's got a height fetish: either smaller than him or taller.

    This, she was literally BfA's Pepe the bird. Is it really surprising that she has already lost relevancy? It also happened last expansion after Anduin said 'Hi'. Additionally her usefulness in BfA extended to being a taxi service and little else and we have alternative forms of transport available.

    I'm disappointed with how this meeting happened, it's like
    Taelia: Hi dad, i'm Taelia.
    Bolvar: Hi Taelia, i'm dad.

    He is not, he has a thing for draenei and dwarf women and had a little fling with some girl in Goldshire inn in the Shadow's Rising book.

    Ye, lets hope they have something in store for them later.

    Can't see Blizz focusing on their relationship for the time being.

    Indeed, Tess could easily replace Taelia in the whole Kul Tiras storyline. And Vanessa, given her character, she could easily be hiding in Kul Tiras masquerading as a port official or guard, she would be even better in that situation. So yeah, Taelia is just completely and utterly unnecessary.

    So he is into both bestiality and pedophilia? Quite the range there!

    Moderators on this site are, to put it nicely, morons. They believe any opinion contrary to popular ones are either trolling or flaming or baiting. They can not comprehend the fact that there can be people who would utterly detest what they like or million others like. Well, it is their site and their "Authoretaeh" but they are morons nonetheless.

    I mean, it pretty normal for blizzard to just say " alliance lore who?" yea they are putting her on ice.
    just like back in WoD, when blizzard was like" guys guys, dont worry, i know this seem like a orc / horde focused expation, but there will be alliance lore as well. yrell is going to have her movements and maybe a dark twist"
    And they did nothing with her.
    was only in Legion / BFA allied races they even fucking bothered adding "she is now Hitler of the Light"

    The same will happend with Taelia. She will get 1-2 minor minor minor scenes.

    And then at the end she will be like" AND i think that explains it all and all was told".

    Same with Jaina and Thrall tbh, but they still keep stealing spotlight from other characters. Besides, Sylvanas' story is almost at its peak, but Jaina and Thrall will be around for a long time to come.

    So far Taelia hasn't gotten anything significant beyond the brief conversation she has with Bolvar upon arriving. The first major patch isn't here but doesn't seem to have anything more on that in it. Understandably focus is probably on Sylvanas and the Jailer atm. Supposedly there are two more major patches to go, where Taelia could get some attention somewhere. I'd probably expect the .2 patch before the .3 in terms of Taelia getting content, as half-way major patches tend to be the more 'side-adventure' content, where side-characters like Taelia usually have more opportunity to have something happen to them. There are plenty of other side-characters like Nathanos and Koltira and maybe Tyrande/Ysera and etc. to get through as well, so hopefully they manage to get around to everyone they need to.

    Sylvanas and Anduin do hog the story, but I fail to see what might make Taelia gurl even remotely interesting.

Sadly this is a concept that the devs seem to have lost sight of in their quest to keep anyone and everyone busy.
