I have been looking around for some information on just what changes the Lightforging process do to Draenei, aside from the obvious ones such as cool runes and cooler horns.
Personally, I always figured that the Lightforging was in a way the counterpart of the fel-corruption many Draenei have undergone to become Eredar, I.E. it made the bigger, stronger, more endurant, except with more Light themed elements instead of Fel, such as being more attuned to Light spells, and presumably much more resilient to corruption. And with a bit more watered down effects compared to Fel, as I have yet to see a Lightforged Draenei match Archimonde or Kil’Jaeden in height.
I figure the benefits must be pretty amazing in order to make up for the high risks involved, as the Army of Light was not really in a position to waste their people as they were only a few hundred thousand if a few million strong against the endless trillions of the Legion.
What do you think? Is the Lightforging process in essence just a light-themed powerup? Does it have any unique benefits, such as near immunity to necromancy or soul corruption/theft? Or does it just serve Turalyon’s obsession for all things shiny and gold?
Let me know your thoughts!
