Default The Four Horsemen [ Legion spoilers ]

So apparently the ebon blade is going to recreate the four horsemen like in Naxxramas. And the choice are good and odd at the same time. ( massive spoilers below ! )

We will have ( if the quests happen without any screw up ):

Nazgrim
Thoras Trollbane
Tirion Fordring


NB: apparently the ebon blade do not hesitate to attack the forsaken for trollbane and light s hope to extract Fordring's body...

http://legion.wowhead.com/quest=4244...-the-firstborn

The Four Horsemen were the most feared of all the scourge lords. The Archlich Kel'Thuzad considered them his greatest creation.

The Four Horsemen are damned souls, shackled in anguish for eternity. They would be powerful allies against the Burning Legion, but few would pay the price for such power.

<Highlord Mograine pauses for a moment before continuing.>

Perhaps there is one... a fallen general of the Horde.

Seek out the resting place of Nazgrim and call him to undeath. He will answer.

Where is it confirmed that Tirion is a horseman? I didn't see it on MMO-champ or Wowhead.

Personally I'd rather each horseman be from a different race. Could go for a night elf or draenei horseman instead of another human.

It's there just his name spelt oddly

That's what I get for doing "Ctrl+F Tirion" in the patch notes.


What are the odds this may be put in to throw us off?

There's also an Initiate Whitemane listed as one of the Deathknight followers, if that's at all relevant.

It's Blizzard, you worked there, you probably have a better idea than most of us. Is there anyone who had fancy ideas on ruining character development?

In all seriousness though: I have my doubts. If Tirion is coming back then on what grounds is the Ret player keeping Ashbringer? Zeliek used the light just fine and he was apparently completely unnoticeable in life, so what possible reason could there be for modern times greatest paladin to not do the same? If he's still around then anything regarding why the player got the sword is gonna be an asspull. An even larger one than completely negating the only real sense of tragedy we know of in Legion as of yet. But still.

My money is on: Deliberate deception at the moment.

They're including Tirion to have a Sir Zeliek standin.

He'll be Paladin-like even in undeath and I think that's the only thing that makes me okay with this.

Why would the Ebon Blade do this? They fought Arthas for a reason.

Oh wait, rule of cool.

Something about the deliberate Tyrion misspelling is telling me that this is just an April's fool joke and that we will get some dwarf instead.

It is odd, they've never spelled Tirion wrong before that I can recall.

The KotEB saved Tyrion back in IC, so like every good Lannister, he's paying his debts.

And here's Rhllor with the late news.

Wasn't there quest text which states that they serve the Lich King hence the Scourge again even before these new missions popped up?

We'll get to view his dwarf model on the eve of April 1st.

I'd rather not? It feels like we're forcing equality for the sake of equality at that point. I'd rather see the thematic of the class and organization being upheld, than appease the people who are riding the, "No more humans and orcs," train. Not that I think you are, Oma, I know you're better than that, I'm just stating my opinion.

All I hope for is that Taylor somehow becomes one of the Horsemen too. Taylor and Nazgrim were foes and rivals in life. It'd be nice to see them as allies and rivals in undeath. Though ideally I wouldn't want Nazgrim brought back at all. The man died a good death and deserves to join the ancestors, with honor. Taylor... died, and I'd rather leave it at that.

Not necessarily serve; they seem to have an arrangement whereby they fight the Legion in his stead, and he helps empower the weapon(s) of their leader (the player) as long as he keeps the Scourge contained to Northrend instead of unleashing it on the demons.

If we're assuming that the new horsemen are going to be stand-ins for the old ones;

Nazgrim is probably the Korthane expy, being the token non-human
Tirion is the Zeliek expy, being all about the light
We have a third guy, Trollbane, who I guess is the Mograine expy because he's... red?

We need a Blameaux.

So these guys are willing to cross other groups for the greater good but not willing to use the Scourge to battle the Legion.

Given the missions in Scarlet Monastery, it could be Whitemane. Her skills in resurrection may come in handy. Also, what better way for Darion to get revenge on Renault by yanking his girl away from him in the afterlife.
