Didn't Med'an stop being Guardian at the end of the comic book?

After some urging from a much better hunter than myself and messing around, I've come to the conclusion that careful aim, black arrow, and sidewinders are the best talents for pvp in their respective tiers.

Which saddens the fuck out of me cause I'm not a fan of any of them. I just want to play a completely petless MM but I'm not allowed to do that because blizz had to go and cave to the whiners who wanted pets back for MM then they had to go and nerf lone wolf so that it makes no sense to take if you want to have fun and actually be competitive.

Well, bad because it was 'pointless'.

'Good' because they can't fuck up another character's story by introducing inevitable plot holes and retcons.

It had almost nothing to do with anything. If anything less happened in that video it could be a content patch for WoD.

A lot more happened in than what's in the Illidan one. (I don't know why that was the one they showed at that summit when its the last one being released)

Illidan's is just Illidan and some demon hunters go through a portal, kill a random pitlord, demon hunter lady sees how committed Illidan is to fighting the Legion and then a "you are not prepared" meme.

I was hoping that the Khadgar one would involve his missing years in Legion run Outland and his survival along with some hints and foreshadowing... This was admittedly a pointless video, showing us that Khadgar won't be a demon raid boss that they could undoubtedly undo anyway. Disappointed...

They probably just had Gul'dan's story left over from LoW and decided to animate it in a new series but had nothing else to tell. I'm glad for this just because it'll quiet the "Khadgar is Medivh/evil" theories.

Eh, I liked it. It showed the weak side of Khadgar, that he does still want to be the Guardian, while also putting to rest any theories of him being something else.

It may hint at him falling in the future, too.

At least Khadgar's video told us why there isn't a Guardian, so that's neat.

It also pretty much continues to confirm that Me'dan is gone forever and retconned out, which is neater.

Stop trying make Med'an retcon happen, it's not gonna happen. They dont wanna use him but he's still canon

While I agree its not enough to say its officially retconned, everything Khadgar and Dreadlord!Medivh say about the history of the Guardian contradicts the Med'an comics. If Med'an is still canon, his storyline has been retconned to at least some degree, probably to make him less powerful and mary-sue-ish.

Why can't it be just the Dreadlord trying to manipulate Khadgar instead of a retcon of Me'Dan?

Harbingers was a mistake. It never should have happened.

They should make Borny Sorcners into the leader of the Horde #SocialistHordeBestHorde.

Well, misdirect didn't want to work in the dungeon I was in. That's fun.

Debating whether or not I should continue on my hunter or go on another character.

EDIT: Talked with someone who mains a hunter and they said that a macro fixed the problem. Not sure if it's a bug or just something that's "working as intended." Shadow priest time, I guess.

Harbringer was fun. I didn't see anything that conclusively retconned anything. In the end it matters little. If Blizzard decides to bring back Me'dan they will.

Way to waste all of their Harbringer videos. Edgy Lords of War retcon leftover for Gul'dan, non-content for Khadgar and Hollywood summer blockbuster for Illidan.

They had so much potential:
-AU Gul'dan tossed into Archimonde's portal and exploring the Tomb of Sargeras.
-Khadgar's adventures after he sealed himself off in Outland. Could also show the Sons of Lothar a bit.
-Wounded Illidan is rescued by Vashj and Kael'Thas after his duel with Arthas and ponders his options to protect himself from Kil'Jaeden's wrath after his failure to destroy the Lich King.

None of those things really would make sense for leading into Legion.

WoD ends with Gul'dan tossed into the portal so it makes sense to see what happens.

The Illidan one could give us hindsight on his plans against the Legion instead of it solely being into a book.

Khadgar could have learned some useful stuff against the Legion in Outland.

It all makes sense, to me at least.
