… and I can’t believe how awesome this book is even today!
After all these years, it was hugely inspiring to read once again about Alleria and Turalyon. A tale about faith, about doing right things. And the ending, oh, the ending… when they realize they won’t return home, Alleria sees how Turalyon’s eyes shine bright!!!
It wasn’t long ago when Warcraft still produced awesome stories - three years ago we had Before the Storm, with a lot of cool moments concerning Turalyon and Alonsus Faol… and the gathering, oh, the gathering…
Today we have that pile of crap called Shadows Rising. Madeleine Roux clearly lacks talent, and the story just reflects modern political trends of the woke-left. So we have Flynn&Shaw and a couple of non-traditional marriages - all for the sake of pleasing the supporters of certain political agenda. The narrative itself was bland and uninspiring and after all these months I remember nothing.
Which makes me wonder - why haven’t Blizzard invited the great writers of the old like Richard Knaak, Aaron Rosenberg and Jeff Grubb? They’re still active! Why Blizzard has to experiment with people like Roux that clearly lacks talent?!
I don’t know if there’s anything I want to look forward to on Blizzcon… with the exception of Burning Crusade release. I hope that it will be released as-is, with #nochanges, because if Blizzard can’t produce good stories anymore, they should at least preserve the past. Otherwise, can’t wait to play BC just because it had a great story that was true to Warcraft roots and not badly retconned.
