Default The Scryers and The Silver Covenant

Hi all

Id like to pick your brains if I may.

What do you think would be the relationship between the Scryers and the Silver Covenant?

As far as I am aware they dont have any in-game contact or share any screentime, but I cant imagine the Scryers would be indifferent to the return of Dalaran, or that the Silver Covenant would ignore non-Horde Blood Elves.

Thank you for reading and for your thoughts.

The Scryers voluntarily snorted fel crack at whasshisface's suggestion, and so likely share the same opinion of the high elves as the grand majority of blood elves.

A rare few - like the guys in the bazaar who speak of returning to the Alliance, and Tarenar - might look upon them favorably, but since this is a game of races who hate each other (except for the neutrals, of course!), the Silver Covenant will likely not accept them in.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

The Scryers are only not aligned with the Horde because the Sha'tar are more important. Otherwise, they're pretty much the same as Silvermoon blood elves.

Mmmm. The Aldor maybe rejoined the Alliance,

High priestess Ishanah was at Darnassus as a representative of the Exodar to vote for the Gilneans in the Alliance. (source; Wolfheart)

So the Scryers MAYBE returned to their own people/faction when the war in Outland ended and the situation there was under control.

Ahaha, Luke, you just met the reason people here are so touchy about referring to one's race/faction in the first person. Welcome back, Xil.

Anyway, this is what I thought when the information about Ishanah came out. If the Aldor have joined the Alliance, I'd really like to see the Scryers go Horde. If any of my Ask CDev questions had a prayer of being answered, I'd pick that one.

Why would they care about what some silly ethnic minority wing of Dalaran thinks?

I don't see why they'd ever really interact, at least in any "official" capacity. They don't really work in the same circles, from what we know.

I'll never get why you think the blood elves were unjustified in "betraying" a guy who'd gone batshit insane. According to Ask CDev, the reason we don't see Spellbreakers anymore is that Kael'thas all but wiped them out. That gives an idea of just how many of his own people he killed. Sure, the Scryers left before he got that bad, but Voren'thal's vision warned him about where things were headed. I want them to stop hanging out with the windchimes and go home already, though.

Must agree. I mean... the Scryers aren't bad guys. Following Kael'thas into the realm of batshit insanity was the other option in that situation, and they were already on thin ice having followed him that far.

I was less disgusted with the fact that they betrayed their rightful liege in favor of a bunch of Draeneic demigods, and more with the fact that they sanctioned and rewarded specifically the slaughter of their own people. I was so happy to see an Elven faction in Shattrath, and then BAM! It turns out their goal is slaughtering more and more of their dying kind all for some guy's fascination with Naaru. My character then joined the Aldors to kill some nasty demons.

Frankly, I love almost everyone and everything in this franchise. Can't I complain about something?

I'd say murdering your own people removes your "right" to rule. Quel'thalas: Azeroth's Syria!

Besides, Scryers betrayed the leige long before any killing happened.

But to hell with this, let's continue the showcase of amoral rulers. I nominate Henry VIII.



Man really liked to show off his crotch on those portraits.
