Zul is no mere troll. Zul is an idea, a concept, a desire to return to greatness. You could no more kill Zul than you could kill the human spirit or the will of the Forsaken.

I did the whole zone (Loremaster of Pandaria ftw!), you don't kill a Troll named Zul, I would have probably remembered that.

Yeah, that's a bit like saying Zul'jin or Zul'tore must be Zul.

Other people saying things Leviathon didn't and acting like they are right! Ha!

Always a classic.

Completely irrelevant to main topic, but this article was weirdly posted today and answers a question re: english. I recommend reading Mark Twain's bit too.


Swiftly back on topic... Has there been anything old-world (or new-world now, I guess) changed beyond the additions in main cities? I recall seeing ships in Lor'danel briefly, though they weren't there when I went on the beta a month or two ago, so I wondered if that was part of the world event, or retconned away.

Also, tying in with the book, what does Northwatch look like in MoP? :o

Of course they're Zul.

They're not gonna call the questline Z for Zuldetta for no reason!

I'll be disappointed if there's no Ghostbusters reference when we finally do engage Zul.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

So I'm wondering regarding the Theramore opening event, we see a small shot of the bomb detonating in the scenario preview, is the detonation itself going to be visible by both factions or just by the Horde?

Because it seems to me that if the objective is to piss off Alliance players they should see the actual dropping and detonation of the bomb.

I think I could go down to McDonalds, order a strawberry milkshake, take the bus to the park, enjoy the weather, and then go home, and it'd still be enough to somehow piss off alliance players.

Presentation is important is what I'm saying. Things like the Sludge Fields and Southshore and the like are effective at pissing people off because the scene, backstory, music, and tone create a visceral emotional response that causes people to get emotionally invested.

If Theramore is supposed to be this rallying point for Alliance players (because for some reason they still need one) then Blizzard should be trying to get that same visceral response.

I agree it would be good if they showed the bomb going off for Alliance players.

I have horde toons if they don't, but I definitely agree it would pack more of a punch if it was a part of the Alliance scenario.

Do ya think they could manage something like a boat you're on being rocked by waves caused by the explosion? Seems like one of those technical thingies that they always have trouble with.

I feel that I must sig this. I was thinking very similar while reading the story forums earlier.

Why strawberry, huh? WTF? Chocolate isn't good enough for you and your stupid Horde biased cup of frozen milkfat?
