Say you’re suddenly transported to the world of Azeroth with adventure, heroics and magic abound! Sounds pretty sweet right?
Are you crazy!? Azeroth is basically an Underdeveloped World, that’s right it’s not just one underdeveloped country but the whole freaking world!
When have you ever seen a bathtub in Azeroth? Stormwind may look pretty but oh my god the city must stink and don’t get me started on the canals, enjoying your swim?
YOUR SWIMMING IN WATER SO POLLUTED THAT YOU MIGHT DIE FROM SWALLOWING IT YOU IDIOT!
Takes several deep breaths
Now that’s Stormwind, the height of civilization in the Eastern Kingdoms (sorry gnomes but you kinda nuked your own city) but what about Orgrimmar? Dusty, hot and filled with Orcs who train all day in full armour. Yeah that place will stink.
Thunder Bluff and Mulgore actually didn’t strike me as too bad. These guys respect nature and in turn keep the land clean and healthy, same with Night Elves.
Okay so maybe you can adapt to the lack of hygiene, fair enough.
THE DEAD ARE RISING AND YOUR MUM IS CURRENTLY EATING YOU!
Arthas the Lich King has a huge vendetta against the living so let’s team and fight together!
Actually a good plan, I approve. Okay let’s also send these highly aggressive adventurers to fight the undead for - oh they’re already trying to kill each other.
That’s cool, let’s win anyway yay!
A FREAKING DRAGON THAT CAUSED A PLANET WIDE CATACLYSM HAS APPEARED.
Get me my robe, no the black one, no the other black one! That’s better now I can join that cult on the side is the evil dragon
Of they fully expect to perish along with Azeroth but are happy to help.
Oh the dragon seems dangerous so let’s climb on his back and do some cool stuff.
Aaaand we’re falling but someone else will kill him, yay!
THE WORLD HAD BEEN INVADED BY ALIENS IN SPACESHIPS.
Better go fight them with swords…
Sure the technology on display by the legion is magical and therefore not as powerful as it seems but when SPACESHIPS arrive you don’t just put up a poster and grab your axe.
Oh that worked, yay
Ugh more deep breaths
Azeroth sucks, it must be so hard for people clued in to just leave home. If you live outside a city you may as well accept that you’re running the risk of catching a very serious condition known as dying.
Demons, undead, bandits, wild animals and monsters want to kill you. Azeroth is a bleak world with one war following the last, an unbroken cycle that has left tens of thousands dead.
I don’t wanna live there
