I kinda want that 'horde shaman' to be a recognisable NPC. Instead of it being some random guy we've never heard of before, I think it'd be cool him being an A-list or B-list character.

Does it? We've seen the datamined outcome of the battle, which shows us Theramore becoming a total ruin adorned by smashed piles of rubble and a gigantic graveyard.

I didn't think the Horde would really end up sticking around and building a graveyard for the Alliance dead while they were at it...

Edit: Depends on what you mean by "lost," I guess.

If it has a graveyard means the Alliance got to keep the land

Is there an actual graveyard?

If there is, perhaps it is from a "later phase", after the Alliance character pays respect to the dead.

It looked more like a mass of graves to me. Nothing stone involved.

EDIT: My memory is apparently faulty. Thanks Bryn for the refresher.

I'm guessing the isle is taken over, and then the Alliance goes in to push the Horde out. However, I question the viability of the Alliance keeping the place unless Garrosh decides to leave it like that.

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.

Some have stone markers, some have wooden ones, some have offerings of flowers, and…oh shit, is that Pamela’s creepy doll?!

That really doesn't look habitable to me, even if the Alliance does retake it. They'd be better off moving the teleport thing to Feathermoon, maybe...

So this is a mana bomb thing, and the Alliance does retake the lost grounds, as the graveyard does look like an actual cvilized graveyard. Interesting.

Perhaps the mana bomb was brought to the Horde by Pathaleon's inventor staff from Sunfury, who returned to Quel'Thalas after the Crysis on Quel'Danas?

Garrosh's troops aren't that stupid. Besides, the quests for the Horde end of things have the players go in and rescue a Sunreaver, then destroy all anti-air defenses, and then they go back to their starting point (a ship?) before dropping the bomb. There's no indication of, say, fighting at the front gates.

I've never actually played it, but I knew about it. And, you're right, this game made me think it is spelled with "y" in English.

Now I feel stupid.

So, uh, what do you think about that Mana Bomb thing?

Is there a faint blue glow in the area? I thought purple magic like that was like the Dalaran teleportation spell.

People say it's one because of the glow in the crater.

It's a theory, but I think it is one that makes sense. What's your opinion on the matter?
