    IMO, he should not have one, be it a straight relationship or not. At best, a supportive partner, akin to what they did with Mayla and Baine and are doing currently with Emberthal and Ebyssian.
    Given his current state, he's in no shape to get into a relationship anyway, nor do i expect him to have any relevance to the story for DF anyway. Possibly not for the next one or two expansions either. Mental issues of that magnitude can take a long time to deal with.

    Unpopular opinion but they could probably cool it with all the relationships in the future. It seems more about shipping rather than actually creating a story. And honestly, relationships make pretty boring stories unless there's some element of conflict involved.

    why would that be considered as unpopular ?

    Anduin fan shipping is stupid, he's straight. I also don't expect him to be relevant until 11.0. (I absolutely hate shipping of two characters who are just seemingly bros. Thats all it is).



    Emberthal and Ebyssian.
    i think its just an arc to show how different Ebyssian was to Sabellian and Wrathion.

    Probably going to announce Cataclysm classic as well.

    I’m going to assume 11.0 is going to be new races and maybe the new continent of Avaloran on the other side of the world? Probably a few old world revamps to boot. Those are the safe bets.

    More crazy bet would be them announcing a new fourth role (Support) for a few select classes which would fundamentally change group content. That would definitely get some headlines. It would be fascinating to see how something like that would shake up the game and community. In an expansion of revamps… why not revamp how we raid?

    This is a franchise about war, not romance. Romance has never - and should never - be a story point in Warcraft.

    Romance has been a story point in wow tons of time rather it be Thrall getting Married, Varian being a dick because he lost his wife, Moria and Thaurissan absconding, ect ect ect.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    For that matter, how many wars have been fought using it at least as a premise...

    And where is "Sabellian doesn't hear voices" coming from? Seems to me he finds them rather annoying and distracting. Maybe he can't understand them, but he very much appears to hear them.
    We see wrathion mention them and Sabellian act like he doesn't understand what he means

    Though I mostly just want wrathion being titan powered touched on

    Not that the story of dragonflight really needed her at all, but killing her off wouldn't have an impact very much because of that. If we start killing off every ineffective character we are left with a fraction of what we have.
    Her dying would be the final original aspect gone.
    She talks about unity but when wrathion asked for her help to do something that we needed to do anyways she went "nah not yet I'm too busy with these eggs" and then we find she's doing nothing

    After Ebyssian takes the role of the Black Aspect, Wrathion will surely seek to his boyfriend's needs.

    I understand that Warcraft's development of romantic relationships sometimes isn't the most compelling, but to claim it's never been about romance ... like that's just not true. Arthas and Jaina, Jaina and Kalecgos, Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande, Turalyon and Alleria, Nathanos and Sylvanas, Varian and Tiffin, Moira and Thaurissan, Thrall and Aggra.

    actually romance should never have been a story point in warcraft (at least a major one), but at this point i don't care, so i'm fully for a transition to Anduin dating sim. blueballing Baine? hating himself for craving that black dragon dick? lusting for Fareeya? questioning himself for developing feelings for Moira? crying to his therapist when he recounts how Sylvanas repeatedly raped him in prison and how he's ashamed to admit that he liked it?
    that's a hundred times more interesting than an nth sermon about compassion.

    We also see Sabellian complaining that it's distracting him. You might be misinterpreting his reaction. They might not be hearing the same things exactly, but they're certainly both hearing things.

    Arthas and Jaina, the whole mess with Tyrande, Malfurion and Illidan, romance's come up plenty of times and this is just in Warcraft 3, let alone WoW itself

    i could be 100% wrong and you could absolutely be correct
    i just dont want the surface level of this stuff to be true because it means they essentially ruined wrathion making him go back to MoP personality and use "old god influence" as a reason when in terms of the 3 dragons he should be the LEAST effected

    Malf/Tyrande/Illidan
    Kalecgos and Jaina
    Arthas and Jaina
    Thrall and Aggra
    Moira and Thaurissan
    Varian and Tiffin
    Alleria and Turalyon
    Nathanos and Sylvanas

    Like, i agree that they should put less focus on it as those relationships are never actually compelling nor interesting.
    But pretending romance has never been a story point is laughably wrong

    Not healthy romance, but the War of the Ancients only happened because Azshara wanted to marry Sargeras. Sargeras himself wanted to... do things to Azeroth.
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.
