I always sorta saw the whole warlock class as playing the villain - summoning demons and enslaving fel and the like. But that's just my perspective of playing one.

I don't think the alliance really needs a villain - I think some ppl need to stop wishing for main characters to suddenly turn evil to make what sylvanas did look ok or justified. *shrug*

It's not that it's just people are sick of it always being the Horde that does the bad things. If a character turns evil or does bad things 9 out of 10 times it'll be a Horde character. It's just old at this point.

That's kinda how they've been geared to be the last few expansions tho - blizzard have wrote themselves into a corner abit. Goblins polluting the land, Syvanas and her valkyres and Garrosh mana bombing cities for shits and giggles.

I get why the horde players would hate it (I think in Legion they tried to turn it around) but ultimately unless you play a Tauren or maybe a blood elf (possibly a troll but I haven't done their story) blizzard have painted them as the 'villains' for the time being and the alliance as happy families co-op. I don't think (in my opinion anyway) suddenly making an alliance a bad guy would make much sense or really equal out the bad writing on the horde side.

True. With all this "Night warrior" stuff with Tyrande that could lead to some not so good stuff. Or at least some extreme stuff. If I was king I'd be keeping a close eye on something like that.

My hope is that it doesn't lead to anything bad. The main reason that I feel this way is that the Kaldorei and their fans have been getting the short end of the stick for a very long time. Killing/corrupting one of, if not the biggest character of their race would be another big kick while they are already down.

yeah and she's always been abit batshit crazy tbh. The burning of the tree might be the ultimate "I've had enough" moment for her. Hell as a night elf main seeing my civilisation reduced to living in the SW pumpkin patch makes my druid abit batshit crazy too :lol:

Edit: Sakurie might become a villiana and be all night warrior on the hordes ass this expansion - beware my evil moon chicken!!!

Lorash Sunbeam, a BE rogue that was in the Horde novella and was eventually killed by Malfurion, has been reanimated by Sylvanas.

As some might recall, Lor'themar warned Sylvanas back during SoO to never reanimate his people.

From what I'm continually reading it sounds like the Lightforged Draenai may end up becoming the same as the Lightsworn Draenai, which would then make them have the potential to be a bit more villainish.

This is interesting. I never fully thought Lor'themar would be on board with Sylvanas and in "Before the Storm" alleria tries to convince him to join the Alliance. Not that I think BE's would run off to the family co-op but might be a tipping point for him to side more with Baine and the other "original" Horde races against her.

Well, apparently Baine, the Tidesage, Amalia, and a bunch of other people turn on Sylvanas because she raised Derek Proudmoore, according to wowhead's datamine of the Broadcast text.

I really don't see how this ISN'T Garrosh 2.0.

They're literally doing the exact same thing. They're 1 by 1 turning every Horde NPC against the leader.

Apparently raising Derek was even the final straw for Valtrois, as now she sees SYlvanas as no better than the Legion. I mean, she may not lead the Nightborne, but I'm pretty damn sure Thalyssra trusts Valtrois.

Talanji sees Sylvanas as no better than Zul.

....is Gallywix the only leader she hasn't burned a bridge with yet?

Gallywix briefly questions if he should ever have told her about Azerite and realizes that if he did not that the war would never have happened. He then disregards the thought and remarks that he is enjoying making Azerite weaponry.

It does seem that way. It's unsurprising Gallywix doesn't care, as he's a sociopath who cares only about profit. But it looks like the rest of the Horde are quickly heading towards a coup. I can't imagine it'll take the same form as with Garrosh (surely they wouldn't repeat that much of the plot!) but I'm curious where it leads, and who was behind Sylvanas's choosing.

Is it bad that I want this expansion to end already because of this patch and all the datamined nonsense about Sylvanas? This absurd amount of build up to an eventual redemption and/or "did it for the greater good" story is annoying and pathetic. Just give me the old god you want us to kill and be done with it. The Horde is LITERALLY a villainous faction until Sylvanas is removed. There is no morally grey here; you're on the objectively wrong side of history at this point. That's poor writing. Not even Garrosh had this much trash writing.

I really hope that they don't pull a Kerrigan with her. Either kill her off or have the Horde exile her. You can't justify the burning of innocents, the defiling of bodies, or taking away free will.

This is the only expansion where I've hated playing horde.

Considering I don't think she can die of old age, I think exiling her to an island she can't escape from would be better than actually killing her.

And I think the Wardens would be more than happy to act as the... well, wardens. Just from a distance so she can't kill them and res them. :P

Good point, but I had a feeling (but could be wrong) that Forsaken do rot away with age. Anyone know about this is true?

However, I have a hunch that whatever happens to her is going to tie in with the new Lich King. There were hints of something related to him in upcoming content and it seems a big coincidence if there's no link at all, plus all these "death powers" milling about are bound to collide at some point soon.

The Forsaken do gradually rot (necromatic energy slows this) and will eventually die off whether by rotting or being killed. Most Forsaken want for this to happen and do not want for more to be created and were against her creating more.

Agreed. There'll probably be an upcoming xpac where Bolvar plays a much bigger role. Mueh'zala (evil death Loa) might be behind much of what is happening, including Sylvanas becoming Warchief.

I never trusted the new Lich King. I mean it's the Lich king! If you've played the Legion DK quests you know he can still talk to you in your head and that no one is happy about that.
