    Blizzard - Sylvanas isn't going to be another litch king. Video - literally discribing how she is going for the source of that power, and retcons their statement. Blizzard - Don't you guys have bad memories? Fans: 😡

    Just a fair reminder that if blizzard didn't kill off Varian. Varian would have easily fought off getting kidnapped. Seriously. He'd strike them both down barely an effort and be like "so where were we genn?"

    It's nice to see the King of SW being the victim of a kidnapping for a change. Maybe they will make him lose his memory, and put an evil twin in his stead on the throne. The good twin will be forced into merciless gladiator fights, where he will reclaim his memory piece by piece...Oh! And plot twist - the evil twin is not so evil! So, they just took Mokuba's life out of Yu Gi Oh, and put it in WoW...

    I was expecting some sort of reference to the jailer, but that was entirely centered around Sylvanas. Weird because I assumed the main antagonist of shadowland would be the jailer... especially when everything Sylvanas has done is part of the deal she made with him

    • wendywarrior1


      Өдрийн өмнө

      There is another version of the first part of this vid where Sylvanas references the Jailer. But either way, YES. This is clear evidence of Blizzard's complete inability to tell a story that makes sense, write the story, handle the story, or maintain lore. It's just embarassing.

    It would be incredible and the only correct way to return Arthas with all his paraphernalia (crown and sword) and at the end of the add-on send somewhere further like Illidan! To rid of such a character is stupid ... and this particular option will always instill intrigue and expectation from fans! + The film studio plans to make a film about the Lich King! PS: Thanks for the content, as always gorgeous and there is something to think about! Gorgeous fantasy universe!
