If Blizzard was afraid of having two clones in her and Vareesa, maybe it was Vareesa who should have gone shadow.
I'm not sure I understand your argument here.

I'm not sure the Alliance really needs WC2 Alleria back. At this point, WC2 Alleria is just Vereesa with less baggage, and narratively that doesn't make sense for Alleria anymore given what she's been through.

Tyrande, throughout the course of Legion so far, hits all of the notes that badass ranger Alleria would have hit, with the added complications of her relationship to Elune as a priestess of the moon and her relationship to Malfurion put on the line.

I guess what I'm saying is that WC2 Alleria is not as much of a character as the other characters we've seen added to the Alliance roster since she disappeared. Adding this void dimension to her jumpstarts her character development and makes her unique.

I can see all of that, and I mostly agree, but in my opinion that focus is on the Void, not on Alleria. Like, "who can we use as a good figure head for Heroic Void Users™? Oh, there's Alleria! Alleria it is" instead of "What can we do to give Alleria something that's entirely hers? Oh! What about THE VOID? Just imagine the sheer amount of possibilites of conflict with Turalyon..."

I don't like it, because it feels like another character "going mad" in order to become a raid boss. Not that I think that she's going to become a raid boss, but it's on that level of "character assassination".

On the other hand, this Void stuff is the first time I have ever been interested in Alleria. Without it she's just a generic elf ranger.

So, what are the chances that she's a Void Lord?

About even with her being an old-god that got chewed up by the others.

Why not both? They used fellow Old God parts to create a channel to their masters.

More seriously, I'm hoping the consciousness behind Xalatath leaves the blade and goes ahead to become a major character in the inevitable Void expansion.
