Wow, yeah, that's clever. I'm going with that.

This is making the whole thing very complicated as it requires many modifications and without much reason. Just say that the Pantheon "dimming" thing from Chronicle was just them leaving the keepers' bodies as they realized they couldn't withstand their power, and went into hiding as Eonar stated.

Doesn't really work with Aman'thul and Aggramar. Since Aman'thul should be in Wrathion now. Then there's Aggramar whose essence is mentioned during Tyr's death in chronicles and the reason why Tirisfal has arcane energies in the land. Unless the Legion came to Tirisfal and scooped it up to resurrect Aggramar it doesn't really work.

if illidan can btfo every demon in the universe surely the titans could too.

Arcanomancer Vridiel said that when you handle him the essence

It is deeply disconcerting that the power of Aman'thul grows increasingly unstable. We must pursue this matter further.

Is this volatility the result of the Legion's corruption? No, that is too recent an influence. Something else must have...

Because Night Elves are inherently resistant to Fel, and Titans are inherently weak to it.

For whatever reason, Night Elves guzzle fel that would break other races. Its why Night Elves didnt go insane as often as Blood Elves, and Night Elves have shrugged off eating demon hearts.

Which is not something Nightborn or bloodelves seem to have

I mean.. have we ever seen Fel Trolls? It might be Night Elves, being the closest to Trolls in the Elf line, have enough of that mutability and hardiness to explain it

Blood elves and nightborne don't have it because they've strayed too far from the voodoo.

They also had variating sizes. I don't really see a problem here.
I don't believe Kil'Jaeden did.

And Archimonde only appeared once.

Kil'Jaeden I think appeared as a giant to Illidan atop the Black Temple. Nevermind, that was an illusion.

You know that never made sense to me. Why did illidan stay in ouland if Kiljaeden could access that world and stuff. why didnt he just go elsewhere. I mean.

KJ comes there and threatens him and stuff (as an illusion) and then the whole "Fail this and i will kill you" stuff. but well nothing happens Illidan just goes back to outland after failing to kill arthas. and then he just spends his life brooding at the BT and not doing much.

Sad that the Illidan book just covers TBC and not Wc3.

Ehhm, nope?

The novel actually covers his confrontation with Kil'jaeden. (Not the reaso nwhy the fuck he fled to Outland, but perhaps Chronicle 3 explains thsi.)

@Brooding:

Ehhm, have you actually read the book?

Oh? I thought it was just about tbc stuff to explain that stuff and nothing about his life in regards to wc3 and stuff?

Technically, TBC doesn't start until Chp. 21-23, because this is when the story of the pre-event starts. (Kruul opening the Portals, Alliance/Horde striking back and finally arrive in Outland.)

The Prologue and Chp. 1 is WC3.

Everything between the first and the later is Outland, but Pre-BC.
(And actually filling LOTS of story gaps.)

Plus, retconning that Illidan done nothing while "ruling" Outland and was just crazy. (He actually wasn't. People just thought he was, specially Akama.)

Illidan is much more his WCIII/Legion self in the book. The MB we all love.

Why do I think this is you desperately trying to make the night elves look competent?

He was gigantic at Sunwell, nowhere near that big in 7.2 or the Argus flashbacks in 7.3.

He's normal sized in 7.3's Argus flashbacks, and the WotA novels actually say clearly that he's able to increase his size; he did it against Malorne.

Top left, Sargeras promo image, maybe indicates he has a form in game? Doubt it, but it's interesting I guess.

Given the fact that the 7.3 cinematic will include a flashback to Argus, its possible we might see him in that.

In the background, I see a human, a night elf, some draeneï and a gnome.
Even on Blizzard official arts, there's no Horde presence
