I am NOT looking forward to do the shroom quest... not when people do not bother to read the quest and and shrooms has like 5 hp...
Can you play through this questline w/o the risk of Scourge Assault turning you into a scourge/zombie? Also the daily quests unlocked are they doable away from player controlled zombies?
That's the one part about the returning Scourge Invasion and the continued existence of the Argent Crusade that felt weird to me. If the whole point of Bolvar becoming the Lich King was to prevent the Scourge from going on a rampage, you would think that in the intervening years between Wrath and Shadowlands, he would be sending the remaining Scourge on an assembly line in front of a firing squad to eventually reduce their numbers to nothing. Why is he keeping a standing army around that can potentially go berserk at any time? And in Legion, he is actively raising more undead with the return of the Four Horsemen. I loved the Death Knight campaign and I get that Sargeras is a major threat, but really? He is intentionally making his own job harder and increasing the impact of a catastrophic failure from an unforeseen event like say... the helm breaking apart...
Well it seems we get another "undead" NPC we dont like or want as Forsaken ... (first Nathanos now Calia...). At this point its just straight up booby fanservice... how about... you know create a badass Forsaken character instead of taking a random ally.
You forgot to mention that Mayla is also present on the Grommash Hold :cI kinda agree about the Warchief stuff, since I was waiting for my boy Baine to become one at the end of BfA, but I also think it's pretty easy for Blizzard to introduce a Warchief again, if Alliance or someone else attacks, because in that case they will need a leader.
Just to point out... Blizz has explicitly said Calia is NOT leading the Forsaken. She's acting as an advisor to Voss and there for her own reasons, including such matters as trying to reconcile the Night Elves turned undead by Sylvanas. As to the Argent Tournament Grounds... I imagine that it would be kept in place as a training facility/base of operations against just such an eventuality. Arthas may have been killed, but the Lich King remained and the threat of the Scourge has still lingered.
Yeah, the intro quite shows the state of the Horde with "neutral" Valeera and totally-not-Alliance and totally-not-future-Queen-of-Forsaken Calia Menethil alongside Lor'themar being the big representatives of the whole effort. Since we're into sharing neutrals, how about having Garona show up in Stormwind to assist in searching for Anduin? She knows the place!
