I'm glad they don't state the night elves coming from trolls as fact, I didn't particularly like that theory anyway. Besides, you know Hebitsuikaza is having an orgasm now.

"Orgasm" would be an understatement for Hebitsuikaza.

I kinda like the idea for trolls/NE thing. /shrug. Just one more layer in the flakey goodness that is Azeroth. But it doesn't matter either way. Nice to know that it's supposed to be the 'Dark Horde' or something like that(?) .

OT for a bit:
Nice icon btw Vicious. Liked that series till the last 3 episodes and my brain went, "wha? Demon faces, giant bird, death, WHA?" :confused: :kawaii:

Thats why you need to read the manga, which does a much better job of explaining what the hell happened :P The anime should never have had that bit, as they had already changed too much of the series for that scene to not make any sense. Still a great series however, but the manga kicks it ass.

Wow, mention of sand and dark trolls in the same article. I'm impressed. Combined with the handling of the "Elves came from Trolls" theory and this is a VERY nice lore update. I'm very impressed, especially after the Draenei snafu.

It is their way of sucking up. I'm impressed they actually remembered how Zul'jin decieded to join the Horde hehe.

Hey, have some fate, it is not like they forgot the backstory if someone like Sargeras, isnt it? :p

Yeah, could have been worse. Not like they forgot Balnazzar dies, or forget what Kul Tiras is. Or forget about Gilneas.
(After wasnt it the case that they forgot Balnazzar died which is the nonlore reason he's in there?)

Reason Balnazzar is alive....

"BLUES LOL" doesnt sound the same. I know the drops of Balnazzar isnt that great, but "EPIXX LOL" sounds much better than "BLUES LOL"

He Drops a really nice 2 handed sword.... Its above average...... BUT its not WTFPWNEDEPIX!!!!! I hated kids when I was a kid..... Now I hate them more. Cyber-jive ruined Warcraft. Not Blizzard, Not Retcons, but Kids..... There should be a server that is RPPVP that required you to pass a trivia or some sort of approval before you were allowed to create a character there. maybe even an Age limit cap too..... Please Blizzard hear my call.

They haven't given a reason for why Balnazzar is alive in WoW.

I seriously doubt they have forgotten that Balnazzar died, just that there's a reason he is still around. Who knows with dreadlords, people should have faith. Its the same with Kul Tiras or Gilneas. Chris Metzen may have said he had forgot about them but it seemed like he was joking, similiar to the Old Gods corrupting Sargares :P

Metzen forgot what he wrote in the Warcraft III manual. He forgot that Knaak's demon character was named Hakkar. I think's it's possible that he really forgot about Gilneas. It's important to note that they did NOT say they forgot Kul Tiras.

With all the Tiragarde stuff going about, it would be stupid to say they forgot about it. Also having a Teal Footman helm helps.

Youre not one of them! Shoo! /kick

;) On a serious note... Kul Tiras is not in the game :P So I assume they forgot about it. Gilneas at least has an excuse you can't reach it in lore terms, but Kul Tiras? Add plx. Anyway, they didnt say they forgot Balnazzar thing either but were all still waiting for a reason aye

Creative

Aslong as they dont say that Kul Tiras was destroyed by the Naga, and it is all some big instance... o.o

I want a single big city in the game, Kul'Tiras' capital could be it.

Creative
06-18-2006, 05:12 AM
Then Horde should get one too, as Kul Tiras wouldnt let the Horde inside... The Orcs should have some big city aswell then :D

Kerrah
06-18-2006, 05:14 AM
Hmm.... Some old horde joint at outland?

Creative

Auchindon! That would be cool, and show that blizz remembers Warcraft 2.

That place will belong to some third faction.

Anyway, dont you think that cities in WoW are outstandingly small and boring?

Creative
06-18-2006, 05:43 AM
Yes, towns like Razor Hill that is only three houses... Sigh... :(

Kerrah
06-18-2006, 05:44 AM
Im talking about the Cities, not towns.

But anyway, why does Creative get credit for linking this when i didnt get recognition for linking the Ogre Lord Beastiary upgrade?

Congratz, Timolas! '

Also, I would guess in game Orgrimmar is as big as "real" Razor Hill, or something.

I doubt that big. In Warcraft 3 Gar'thok's base is Razor Hill, and it wasnt very large even then.

Wasnt Razor Hill were Thrall was supposed to get ambushed, but Rexxar took his place?

Yes it was.

So then it wasnt built yet =D

Timolas
06-18-2006, 06:09 AM
Was it?
Ah I assumed Gar'thok's base was Razor Hill, since Razor Hill in WoW is run by Gar'thok.

Didnt Gar'Thok die aswell? :/


Also, Gar'Thok maybe got in charge of Razor Hill after that outpost got razed.

Yeah all evidence in Wc3 points to Gar'thok dying, but I guess he hid in a crate, because hes at Razor Hill now. Im surprised he got promoted to running Razor Hill if he escaped the battle at his old base.

Kul Tiras is not in the game for the same reason that Quel'Thalas and Zul'Aman were not. It's future content.
