    It'd come a bit out of nowhere, he hasn't been in this expansion at all.

    The usual ways to break mindcontrol is either to break the magical whatever that does the controlling, or a big dramatic "I know you're in there!" moment, where the mindcontrol is broken by some kind of deep emotional connection (often of the romantic variety)

    Despite what fanfiction writers say, Wrathion and Anduin are not a couple. I'm not even sure I'd call them friends anymore, going by that cinematic in BfA. "You got my father killed" is a pretty big thing to have to work past.

    I just hope we do get a chance to free him, and it doesn't end up being something like we have to kill him in a boss fight, but then his spirit hangs around in the Shadowlands being all sad and mopey. Though I guess the alternative is we free him, and he mopes around in Stormwind for a while with his unkempt emo hair.

    Thats not what I said. I said half assing shit makes it look like pandering to creepy shippers. All they would have needed to do is have someone say "Oh I thought he liked Tim instead" or what ever and it would have been clear and not look like they were just pandering to some fanfiction creeps that gotta ship any two characters that have any kind of interaction together. Or you know don't mention him liking Taelia at all and it would have looked like it was planned all along. If you are going to do something don't half ass it. Don't add a lesbian elf couple where one has become a satyr unless you are going to make a female satyr model either make it two dudes or make the satyr one a dude its that fucking simple.

    It was a shame for him to bow out so soon after being re-introduced into the game, so yes, I'd like him to play a part in Shadowlands.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    I want that just to see the insecure straight people screech and cry about "omg no gay in my game!!! wtf noo" and after they post that, they return to their thinking "I like maid outfits, that makes me super straight right?"

    We know there's a specific chemistry between both (fits Blizzard recent agenda very well on top of that). Will Wrathion's compassion for Anduin help us in freeing him from the Jailer's influence? Will Wrathion partake in Anduin's rescue? This could neatly tie over into the next expansion, which might be Dragonflight-focused as well.

    What do you think?
    Yep. Wrathion will ride his pink poney and save his princess Anduin from the jailer castle and both will live happy forever and have many kids.

    All this while wearing burkas just to be serious about it.

    Ya there’s just too many lore figures for them to focus on at any given time.

    The same way Taelia and Calia got there, via the portal that them and every other NPC uses and which is pretty much canon this time around.

    He's polishing his hammer in Korthia now.. being equally inactive and useless. They don't even give you a fucking quest where you and do something with him once in a while, he is just there, giving you the fucking weekly and staring hollow at the portal stone.

    I can't believe that they gave him that cool new model just to having him stand in Korthia with such a constipated face. He should better do something important in 9.2, unless they want to make him dirtier than they already did at the beginning of SL.

    I full well expect him to stand at the entrance of the final raid and shout some stupid RP stuff, while we do all the work and then suddenly in the final cutscene he get's to rehearse his 3 lines of dialogue and pretend he actually did anything this expansion.

    If my boyfriend was abducted by a giant dominating daddy in another dimension I'd be plunging through to save him. So I only expect to see Wrathion.

    Sadly, you're right.

    I love playing 'Spot the Deeply Closeted' anytime this happens.

    Your belief that wearing a maid outfit / dress / other female-oriented article of clothing automatically makes you homosexual is ironically way less progressive than I think you're trying to come across as here. Or maybe you're just heterophobic, who knows

    Proof is boring. Proof is tiresome. Proof is irrelevance. People would rather be handed an easy lie than search for a difficult truth, especially when it suits their own purpose.

    The annoying thing is it wasn't because we didn't want them to play apart in the fight, it just wasn't fun feeling like we didn't really do that much against Deathwing, only for Thrall to come and one-shot him. They were at leas tbetter in other encounters after, like Illidan on the Kil'jaeden fight. More of that, thanks.

    The thing is, we can be the fucking heroes all the day long, that is not the issue. You can be the hero and still have an adventure with the NPCs, instead of just having one by their infinite grace. Edit: That would also solve alot of their character drama issues, that simply stem from having barely any exposition to the core characters the story tries to put center stage, but the game forgets to actually turn the spotlight on.

    No, because Blizzard writers won't bother to bring him back again after his appearance in BfA.

    But: that's not my point.

    It's more about the implications of an upcoming Dragon Isles expansion where Wrathion for sure would play a role. And so we would have a link between the end of Shadowlands (Wrathion helping to rescue Anduin) and the start of the next one (Wrathion being the Aspect of the Black Dragons).
    Bi doesn't exist in media because a character going from a same sex relationship to an opposite sex one would cause outrage.
