WarCraft 3 B.net Eyeball The Coven - A Demon Thread

All these race appreciation threads and there's none for the man'ari? That should obviously be rectified, since they were responsible for all the evil in Warcraft before it became cool. Fuckin' hipsters... (OG's are just wannabes.)

So why do you like demons?
Do you like them unaffiliated or as legionnaires?
How would you like their story to unfold?
What revelations do you want to see the most?
Would you like to play as one?

I like both.

Kanrethad mentioned more cults being active out there. I want to meet them.

Same. I loved the info concerning the Observers and that they're mostly wanderers and hoarders of knowledge. The demon Lorewalkers.

Anyways, I would love to play a demon in WOW or at least play a warlock that looks like a demon (draenei), so the quests about being able to uncorrupt man'ari eredar are extremely interesting to me. I mean, even if you are able to turn these beings back into eredar (draenei), the reasons for them succumbing to the fel should still be there as well as the training, unless the procedure purges their memory. Potentially, this would allow for playable draenei warlocks. If you consider that Socrethar was also corrupted in the MU, it is likely that the Sargerai existed there and that this method to cure demons might also have been developed by MU draenei. As a consequence, many MU Sargerai could've been forced to returned to the fold, and some might even have decided to continue practicing demonology, with and/or without joining the Legion again. (Let's face it, all of them repenting should be farfetched just like all of them forsaking their new abilities, so some should side with the Legion even after being cured and some should remain draenei but also be warlocks.)

That said, I would prefer more traditional demons with wings. Succubi or Nathrezim, for example. A faction that's not loyal to the Legion and that agrees to work with mortals while their goals coincide.

I'd prefer more intelligent demons instead of mindless murdering beasts. I'd prefer more types of demons to act like traditional ones instead of just the Nathrezim.

The GF quests made some of the more brutish demons seem smart. It's a shame that we see that side of them so rarely. It's like they're all Garry-orcs in another skin.

1. I love it when my minion burns flesh and soul of my victims. Ah, the sweet melody of agonizing screams... men, women, children, so many screams. A lust to kill and maim that never ends. The ecstatic moment, when you smell their fear and see their eyes widen in terror. When the demon rips through the flesh of the child and eats its heart before the eyes of the mother. The scream, yes, the scream... ok, nuff said. Who wants fruit salad?

2. As legionnaires, of course! With pitch black armor!

3. I want them to destroy Azeroth. The real story takes place after that...

4. Well, that Sargeras was corrupted by Tzeentch and that Azeroth is just another planet in the Warhammer 40k universe. Maybe a fight between WoW demons and 40k daemons?

5. Oh yes, especially as a dread lord. They have an appealing intellectual streak.

Does anyone agree that 40k demons are cooler than Wow demons?

Nathrezim! They're the only playable demon race worth entertaining.

It's a shame that the story is discontinued. The Council is like Jaina and Lor'themar's acquisition of Mogu magic done right. If you've got quests like that, something must come out of it.

If Sayaad weren't already a pet they'd be interesting too. Mostly based on the Holographic Emitter's words, though. We haven't really seen much of their activities as intelligence agents... Similarly, the Shivarra could be interesting, if shown in their role as priestesses and military chaplains. That's one of the problems with WOW's portrayal of most demons. It's like the fel killed the few neurons they had, turning them into nothing more than brutes and sexual deviants.

It's a shame really, when there's even a Wrathguard whose title claims that it is a scryer and then it just turns out to be a brute, like the rest of the Eredar's version of Krokul. Most demons are far too vain, rapacious and dimwitted to be a real threat.

I could see (and would very much enjoy playing) Nathrezim possessing humanoids.

If they gave us actual Eredar instead of Draenei (or at least Draenei Warlocks) I could dig it.

draenei are already as close to demon as your going to get. blizzard found a way to take the concept of demons, and go willy wonka on it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here.

Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

Been a long-time supporter of the draenei warlock idea. It would be fighting fire-with-fire; a select few draenei who have decided that the best way to fight the Burning Legion is by using their own slaves against them. Same idea as the Knights of the Ebon Blade. There's even some precedent for it back in the old RPG books, those uncorrupted warlocks who are able to utilize fel energy without letting it warp who they are.

Draenei Warlocks would basically be treated like Demon Hunters for NElfs, I think. I mean worse, but that same general direction.

It'd be weird but if there's a convincing explanation for it I'm in support. Tauradins were friggin weird too but I dig the Sunwalkers.

If/When we get the Legion expansion, it'd be rad if all of the (warlock) races got a female and male model showcasing how they'd look after being completely corrupted by fel energy and turning into a demon. Even more so if those models were used for the metamorphosis spell and it had all of the face, hair and decoration options the original models have. A metamorphosis that's custom tailored to your own character.

I'm all for gender Metamorphosis, but not race-based. We learned from the green fire quests that Meta was specifically based on Illidan's transformation, so it makes sense to turn into pseudo-Illidan.

Speaking of, why do Orcs in Shadowmoon Valley have that ability?

I love demons because they perfectly embody cunning, power, knowledge, and corruption. One can enslave them, consume them, become one of them... There are just so many more advantages to siding with them, than fighting against them.

I know, but you'd think that they've figured out how to get the night elf out of the demon by now.
