[spoilers] 8.2 Rise of Azshara discussion thread

I did it on both a nightborne and my alliance priest. There was no difference. Nightborne screenshots:

Well either or either way - it doesn’t matter who did what.

The poor timing on Blizzard to remind us of this, strikes again. Personally, I don’t care if a few elves were sent to prison or a few elves died - the point is, the poor timing strikes again, thus promoting further questionable story.

(Shadowtwili) #643

Ah, fair enough

Yes it does! Let the flames of war rise ever higher!

So the Alliance can stand bloody and victorious in the end!

(Leíá) #644

MoP 3.0 begins…ffs…

(Lotheridan) #645

oh my god i want off mister bones’ wild ride

(Vixí) #646

There aint nothin’ stoppin’ this ride, kid.


Quoting again for future reference.

I was always under the impression that they’d never make a branching storyline with separate outcomes in the horde rebellion arc. At most, it’d be this situation where you play along with the traitors to expose them but then Sylvanas is toppled in the end with separate rewards and achievements for being rebel or loyal with loyalists being grudgingly pardoned in the same speech where newly crowned Warchief [censored] praises those who stood beside him in ending the tyrant.

I’ve predicted plots before and this won’t surprise me.

Usually it’s the old god critters who vaugely allude to future events since they’re beyond space, time and death but I suspect Chronicle 6 will include a small aside about how Varimathras was actually the Legion’s spymaster or prophet equivalent, using a scrying pool ritual to see the future back in Wrath and mocked us with the truth in Antorus;


"So, your Alliance still endures. Longer than I expected, though she has already planted the seeds of its downfall. She is patient, that one.

When your thrones run red with betrayal… when your holy places burn and the shattered mask hangs above your hearth… only then you will know. And it will be too late.

It matters not. You are blind to the true darkness closing in around you."


"So, she found me at last. Sent her underlings to finish the job.

Tell me, when she seized your throne of hides and bones, was your allegiance forced? No… I’d wager you surrendered it willingly… or were convinced you did.

It matters not. You are blind to the darkness in your midst."

And the stinger: “Better that you died here, where she cannot claim you.”

The ultimate plot twist is that Varimathras was a good lad all along and that the whole siege of undercity situation in Wrath was about him trying to stop Sylvanas early on, his vision informing him of her long term plan and of what she’d become without Arthas to distract her from the darkness inside herself.



blizzard: what, none of you play gnomes??

(Shadowtwili) #650

Yes, there’s a substentional gnome playerbase.

We’ll gnome you!

(Aerilen) #651

Gnomes confirmed for the ultimate e-boy race tbh.

(Chíeun) #652

The mechagnome visual style is actually kinda cool, the problem with them is that they look like little potatoes with sticks in them because their bodies and heads are normal gnome sized but their limbs are super thin.

(Khaltarr) #653

If we’ve learned anything from video games it’s that you can cover unsightly prosthetic limbs with large black trench coats. I’m sure this will be a transmog option when Mechagnomes hit the scene. Perhaps a racial armour! Complete with cool shades.

(Moody) #654

God I want to play a clockwork gnome so bad it’s everything I ever wanted but I never even knew it

(Levey) #655

Meanwhile, I’m entirely opposed to the idea. Prosthetics doesn’t make a “race”.


(Antherian) #656


And neither does fat.

(Levey) #657

The good drust joined the kul tirans and “vanished” into their population. It’s pretty unambiguous what the husky lads and lasses are.

(Antherian) #658

Huh… Never thought about it that way.

(Telaryn) #659

Then Clockwork whispered long and low
And what he said, no mortal can know

Can we get an F in chat for Gil-Var-Delle?

(Moody) #660

They sneered when Clockwork made his demand
