    This your first videogame greenhorn?
    There is a difference between the internal of logic a fictional universe and game mechanics. Magic and stuff is perfectly logical within the warcraft universe. Hurting a ghost that does not even have a corporal body with a sword is not "logical" in that universe, because it has its own established rules.

    All the RPG elements were already heavily left out of the game in the first place, besides some mentioned stuff like fire elementals being immune to fire (let's be honest here if you cast fire spell against a fire elemental you would actually heal or strengthen them because you add fuel to them)

    But it is left out due to game mechanics and comparing these gameplay elements with lore is just a misconception.

    A game that perfectly follows the in-universe rules is not plausible in a gameplay standpoint and gameplay mechanics are necessary.
    It's like asking why we can carry 500 mounts in our pocket, it is just a gameplay feature and has to be differentiated from the actual lore of a game, this argument is just invalid in such a discussion.

    Or like asking why human males don't ever need to use the toilet, you really wanted to the game developers to add this feature? Nobody wants that. Or coming up with random theories why there are no children in GTA games (just imagine the media backlash if they added killable children in their games)

    Dude if you can't understand the concept of lore and gameplay segregation how have you managed to keep playing WoW up until now lmao.

    the real question is how to ghosts float? why don't they sink through the ground due to gravity and/or why can't they fly? and if they can float vertically why do they almost never do, even the ones that decide they want to float through walls? (which come to think of it i've never seen in warcraft either.)

    it has nothing to do with lore, it's about logic and realism

    but no, lore and gameplay aren't segregated

    lore are things like the history of the war of the ancients

    is there any gameplay element that contradicts the lore of the war of the ancients?

    I mean, do You?

    the game is shock full with instances of lore and gameplay segregation, from void elves using light as holy priests, to hundreds of Ashbringers coexisting even if it's canonically one.

    Like you cannot criticize "realism" when you seem so unaware of obvious concepts lmao.

    This thread appears to be going nowhere constructive. Closing this.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see." - Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
