When I spawned in Icecrown, there was an interesting mechanic going on. There was a howling snowstorm, and I had a constant debuff that did frost damage every 10 seconds. There were bonfires marked on the map, and warming myself up by them granted me frost resistance and extra damage for a while, stacking the more I sat by the bonfire.
Glad to see General Nazgrim back with the horde, a welcome surprise
Not a fan of Calia being around the Horde or as part of Forsaken leadership; she has no real relation to them. Now, as much as I like Lillian, I can't really say that she's shown the capability of leadership to become the new ruler of the Forsaken, and she doesn't really have the strongest history with them. I'd say make someone of high rank in one of the Forsaken's governmental organizations their new leader, like Aleric Hawkins, Dark Ranger Velonara (who explicitly sided with the Belves, Forsaken, and Horde as a whole against Sylvanas), Deathstalker Commander Belmont, Master Apothecary Faranell, or, hell, even Sharlindra or The Black Bride would make more sense. Really, I say any of them deserve promotion to leader of the Forsaken over Lillian, or they could form their own little council to lead together. As for the Horde council, I'm fine with that, but there should still be a designated Warchief to lead the military effort. Really, they should force the title back on Thrall, or give it to Lor'themar, but under no circumstances should the position be given to Baine "innocent-Tauren-civillians-are-acceptable-military-targets" Bloodhoof. Traitor to the Horde, and traitor to Thunder Bluff. Thrall may aim for peace with the Alliance, but, so far, at least, he's never treated his own people with such callous disregard.
Just so I'm clear: numerous posters have been agitated by a single line describing Night Warrior Tyrande as having once proven stronger than Jaina?Remarkable. Predictable, sure. But remarkable all the same.It's bizarre to consider that #novengeancefornightelves and #annihilationofanentireraceisgood comes from the same people who thought Garrosh's race hatreds and bloodlust were a parody of the Horde -a faction built on mutual protection pacts between outcasts.(Also psst you mean #genocideisgood, boys. Don't hide what you are; we already know.)Compassion used to be the heart of the Horde and then it discovered it was mighty and that compassion -a mix of empathy and compromise- tasted a lot like weakness. And weakness is to hated as a reminder of surviving by the forbearance of others and not because of the axe and the torch.How tragic.I wonder how much of this does Blizz know? I'd say being out of touch was the basis behind BfA, but what with subs supposedly dropping below the three million mark I think it likely Activision has to be screaming that they get their fanbase back in line and paying up.Who knows. Shadowlands sure looks contentious. But what is remarkable is that in an article setting up SL for both factions the Horde player base is clearly furious about the possibility of justice being dealt to them instead of by them. Nine+ pages of comments yelling "the Horde is dead and Blizz loves the Alliance" and barely a dozen posts commenting on what happens to Jaina and Anduin.How remarkable.I once asked a friend of mine why she'd quit WoW after the Burning of Teldrassil and she said "Blizz burned my tree." Not The Horde, but Blizzard Entertainment itself. I think that kind of clarity is on to something. I'm tired of plot twists and contrarian "moral greyness," of contrived and stupid family drama replacing exploring a world, of Blizz trying to walk a tightrope they themselves set on fire when they tried to balance "we like to play with your toys" against "we like to break your toys." Blizz burned Teldrassil, the Horde was just the means.I think it's appropriate that the lands of death are the coming expansion. World of Warcraft itself is dying, and though past-me can't believe I'd ever type these words in earnest, I think I'm ready to let it go.
This quest went missing 1 min after I accepted it. I cannot get it back. Any ideas?
I think the Horde council feels bad as a Horde player, Sylvanas is an "evil" warchief, now we go to a Horde Council? So you're telling me Baine wouldn't be a good Warchief? With the amount of bad writing in BFA, Horde players have a huge right to upset about it entirely.Vol'jin died in Legion and his story continued.. kind of in BFA. Shadowlands will finish off his pointless death.We were forced to burn a tree and killed thousands of innocent civilians.Got our ass kicked at the Battle for Dazar'alor."Defeated" Jaina but her plot armor lets her teleport away mid combat.Lost both warfonts somehow.Another evil warchief storyline that everyone could smell from miles away.We now have a lame council that resembles the Alliance, effectively taking away one big thing that the Horde had that was badass.
Is this questline live? I can't find the start for it anywhere (Horde).
