    Whatever the scene is I believe it takes place before the Raid which is strange considering both he and Sylvanas turn up in the final encounter and the cutscene is meant to be his goodbye, to who it's not clear. I'd hazard a guess that it's just exposition to set up what happens at the end of the raid possibly as a means of lampshading it in advance as well.

    In WarCraft 3, it is explicitly said that the power of Frostmourne "scars the spirit" and the very first mission of the Undead campaign states that the blade took his soul.

    Duhh please don't spread misinformation. You probably should read the story to know more about him. His devotion to the Light is unquestionable, but never has he become a fanatic. Just look at his wife, he loves her and trusts her more than the Light itself.

    Imagine Turalyon stating otherwise. He could say "I wish Anduin dies" as well. It's like Emperor Palpatine announcing "I love Democracy, I love the Republic!".
    Of course Turalyon has to announce that he does not wish to be king. Anything else would be usurpation. But maybe, in secret he likes being a ruler.

    I hope Anduin dies; remove Anduin the sooner the better
    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!

    Killing Anduin is well-meaning but pointless without a change in writing direction to take advantage of it. The only change Anduin ever needed is in how other characters and the world reacted to him, i.e that everything rotates around the bizarre morality he is the mouthpiece for, there's nothing wrong with the archetype.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    So much so that he let her get imprisoned? lol

    So much so that he straight up attacked Illidan cause he “KILLED HIS HOLY WAIFU”?

    Uhuh...

    How is Arthas a Champion of Light? He ditched it immediately the first chance he got for a shiny cursed weapon. Hell, even with Liadrin it took at least severe trauma for her to abandon the light temporarily, Arthas on the other hand was just "Yeah, whatever helps me kill that guy who provoked me. ME! The unhinged undiagnosed narcissistic sociopath!"

    How? I mean, Arthas commited multiple Genocides for basically no reasons at all, just because he wanted to rule everything. Sylvanas at least seems to be convinced that she is fighting the shit system which is the Shadowlands, especially after from her point of view she was ripped straight out of Paradise and afterwards doomed to eternal suffering just because.

    He grabbed it after multiple warnings that the sword is evil, still possessed his own free will and his humanity as we learn in Rise of the Lichking and then he attempted to stab his good side to death because it was nagging him to not be a narcissistic sociopath.

    Her plan is contingent on sending everyone she kills to hell.

    Arthas was indeed going off the deep end. But by manipulation of dreadlords, and liches ( part of jailors plan). The whole horde fell for it following sylvanas. So did the alliance not noticing some stuff.

    Then he got frostmourn/lk armor. And we do not know how much control he had left by that time. Anduin sure does look a lot like arthas did back then. And we know frostmourne was cursed and spoke to arthas. So blizzard can easy retcon that into a anduin 0.0 version. So while i think arthas was not a good person. His situation is very simmilar.
    He wasn't manipulated that much as in enabled to follow his worst tendencies. At every step of his paths, his friends, loved ones and benevolent strangers try to get him off that path he is walking on, but he never listens to them and instead opts for at every opportunity take the most evil choice he can. His characterization in WC3 as a Paladin is basically the guy in SWTOR who jumps at every option which grants him any dark side points. Then it was pretty much confirmed that Arthas always kept his own free will and that he even had his humanity intact, as it naggs at him multiple times not to be a monster, which he ignores until enough is enough and he literally stabs his childlike representation of goodness in cold blood. We know how much control he had, he had all the control and ample of opportunities to repent and turn away from evil. Hell, even Tirion tried to safe him in Wotlk, until he had to accept that there is just nothing good left in Arthas.

    Hell, why am I the only person who actually played the game, did the quest and read the book?

    Because the Jailer convinced her, that he is the good guy. Have you noticed that in Arthas story, there is never anybody who tries to convince him that the Scourge is actually trying to accomplish something benevolent that it is just misunderstood and he plays along still no matter what?

    Side note: a lot of people hinging on Anduin's 'goodbye'. A primary character saying goodbye (truly believing it's the end) and then miraculously being saved is a common trope. So yes, this could be his goodbye but doesn't mean it's final.

    I don't think so. I mean, people here on this forum don't like Sylvanas, but this forum is also full of the kind of neckbeards who call other people neckbeards while suffering from a crippling addiction to a game they do nothing but complain about.

    Eh, Turalyon really does not give a ruling vibe.

    He was considered to be one before his turning, and he is the only dead other than Tirion with a connection to Uther, unless they bring in an unknown family.

    Xe'ra was about to kill/torture Alleria in that moment and Turalyon was ready to die with his wife. He was in no position to bargain with Xe'ra, he served her after all. Asking for mercy literally the only thing he could do. And if you say why Turalyon didn't just screw Xe'ra and leave with Alleria, I'm sorry to say you have no sense of loyalty or responsibility at all. Beside would Xe'ra let them depart after everything she has seen?

    His initial reaction when Illidan blew up Xe'ra was actually justified. Now, the scenario where "Well, Illidan just blew up my mentor, my commander whom I served for a thousand years and I think it just fine!" is actually ridiculous and make absolutely no sense. Which humanbeing has the ability to do that? He has never met Illidan, he doesn't know him. To him, Illidan is just a random guy showing up in middle of chaos. How would you expect him to act like it's all normal and well at all. He attacked Illidan at first, but how about what come afterward? Did they turn out just fine and then working together toward an end?

    P/s: As a guy who has literally follow Alleria and Turalyon since WC2, I can't help but have a vague feeling that every person who claim Turalyon is a Light zealot/fanatic only do that to fit their own headcanon of a scenario where Turalyon serve as main villain/antagonist for the expansion to come. But the truth is: He has never been one. If you look for a potential villain/antagonist of whom involve Turalyon, it should be Alleria. A manipulative, ruthless and cruel human being, her disdain for human, she fit so much more for an anti-hero/antagonist role than Turalyon and I would love to see if they explore it.
    Alleria Windrunner's BIGGEST fanboy. Will defend her no matter what!

    Yeah, when your "mentor" forces Alleria through either a death sentence or a prison sentence for simply using the Void, and if your mentor forces some baseless "prophecy" on a guy who's clearly shown to have had pure distaste for using the Light and is much better off using the Fel than anything else, then something tells me your mentor's kind of a douche. Loyalty to serve ones blind and one sided cause is practically zealous. Really.

    Not to mention there's probably a very clear reason as to why we're learning of this Dreadlord plot now...

    Guess who Turalyon's champion is. :/

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'm not saying Turalyon is going to be or stay as an antagonist, but I am saying he'll do some zealous shit, and likely be manipulated by Lothraxion.

    Well, one, Alleria's not human, but secondly - she's not "cruel" or "manipulative". She's always been very pragmatic and ruthless, yes, but I don't' think she's ever been evil at all.
