Lore that doesn't star red and blue or is related to red and blue.

Books that are not the novelization of scrolls of lore.

So how did Taran Zhu get into the Heart of Y'sarrj chamber despite practically choking on his own hatred? Why did Norushen let him in?

My Troll I used to play was embarrassed of his accent, and tried to keep it from showing, effecting a fake accent. It slipped a few times.

Arthas's ploy to incite us to come after him in Northrend echoes Mal'ganis attacking Lordaeron and then goading the Prince to come after him and meet his fate.

I thought it was pretty obvious that Arthas' plan to turn the player characters into champions of the Scourge was his way of convincing himself that what had happened to him could happen to anyone, that it wasn't his fault (or his choice) that he had been turned into the Lich King. It was a way of assuaging his own insecurities and ego, and it's quite in-character given his portrayal in WC3.

I know people say that a lot, but I'd have to disagree. Mal'ganis ploy wasn't just about making Arthas desperate, it was about offering a way out through Frostmourne. Arthas didn't do that. Okay, the opening to the expansion is rather similar, and he is technically trying to make us his champions, but those are the only two steps on his path we face. There is no corruption, no forcing into desperation and no cursed way out. We just come up to him, prove we're strong, and he one-shots us. There is no element of corruptible-ness to it.



Now if you want a parallel to Arthas, I'd say Grom's story in WC3 is a good one.

I felt Tirion was starting to go down a dark path, though. He decided to put the war against Arthas on hold so he could feed soldiers to Jormungar because they weren't strong enough to take on the Scourge. And he did it in front of cheering crowds.

I think the Ebon Blade also knew the whole thing was a bad idea. That's why Crok Scourgebane wasn't a boss in Trial of the Champion even though he is the DK counterpart to Eadric. The Ebon Blade representatives were only there to make sure that Tirion didn't get everyone killed before they could get to Icecrown Citadel.

I don't think it's so sinister as that.

In this universe, combating to the death is pretty par for the course, I don't think it's such a heinous concept, and it was volunteer only.

You could also say it's just a matter game mechanics that we would die. It is a Paladin run event, perhaps in the "actual" events, they would protect those who were failing when possible.

And the idea behind the tournament was reasonable if you consider that in the modern Warcraft era, the idea of "dungeon divers" as being an in universe existence might be a possibility. The "champions" NPC's are always referring to is in part to make your PC feel important, but also I think to acknowledge that yeah, there have been a pretty consistent rise of threats in deep recesses of the earth of late; and yeah, time and time again there are heroes of the world coming together to take it down. It's those people that Tirion called for, because that's exactly the force he needed to go against Arthas.

If only the Pit of Saron hadn't made it all seem like a joke when most of the victorious champions got one-shotted and Scourged by Scourgelord Tyrannus, followed by a bunch of hastily-equipped and exhausted slaves from the mines actually putting up a fight.

Wouldn't it be great if Blizzard allowed us to enter the starting zone instances or, at least, stopped making new starting stones be instanced?

Are there people that RP banshees? Like, is there a dwarf claiming to be one of Sylvanas's banshees that is simply possessing the dwarf?

If you can imagine it, it can be done in RP.

I will admit, I did RP as a human death knight that was one of the old school death knights. Was a follower of Teron Gorefiend until he disappeared and since the orcs wouldn't take her back she joined up with the Alliance, but made up a back story.

My bloodelf warlock would love to be a banshee.
She's not a warlock iCly, but a bit mentally-scarred from the Scourge attack on Quel'thalas.
She identifies more with the forsaken, banshees and Sylvanas.


...and I have the vague idea of leveling a human dk and transmog him with the red Arena Season 5 (ilvl 213) set + the red shop helm.
Only need a nice weapon fitting that set and it would be the perfect Generation I Deathknight...
...but I'll probably never buy that helm. Not for that price. Not even for half the price.

Things I really want:
  • Draenei warlocks
  • More demon battle pets
  • More warlock pets

I want to play a demon that commands demons and pets demons.

So I'm getting back into WoW. I quit when 5.4 was mostly current and came back when it was... still current. And I gotta wonder: Why was the Timeless Isle the tie-in questing zone for SoO? It seems so thematically distanced. Part of me wants to think they ran out of time and wanted to re-use Pandaria's art assets rather than make something new like in 5.2
