What I meant more is Elune isn't portrayed as omnipitent or all-good. She's implied to be a powerful force of nature that exists within the world. Who is much more specific in her domain, like the...

But the Night Elves don't subscribe to piety, and they're not monotheistic. They also associated the Humans and Orcs together, Tyrande makes no distinction between them whatsoever (and she's the only...

I think the bigger issue was that the Night Elves' narrative was... pretty much resolved with Frozen Throne. They sort of tried to give them a new hook with Teldrassil, but that never panned out. And...

Elemental Arrows was a talent in the... Legion beta I believe?

But yeah they're not going to give balance druid flavour to hunters unfortunately. The closest we're going to get is sort of...

The only plot points that really bug me in the Reign of Chaos - The Last Guardian - The Frozen Throne storyline are:

1) Founding of Durotar. I just think it's so substandard, even compared to what...

They were a vague notion of a faction in vanilla with three zones (two of them half-assed and incomplete as hell) to their name. The few quests they did have involved them mostly collecting...

I think the Forsaken are absolutely intended to be monsters. Vicious, evil monsters. Perhaps rightly so (lashing out at a world that hates them) but the blight, the necromancy, you're certainly not...

But that's my point. Should there be this all-powerful "we" who arbiters over all morality and only does the right thing?

I don't think so. People respect results and that's mostly what Sylvanas...

I mean this is more a drawback of how Blizzard's set everything up, though. I felt like people mostly understood and got what was going on with Sylvanas in Silverpine Forest + Hillsbrad.

I really wish they'd stop worrying about who's "morally grey" and all this nonsense and just tell the story as it should be. I really don't care about this tit for tat stuff, or making the player...

I mean predominately Elune is the goddess of the Sentinel Army, so I suppose any time they won a battle or were spared it was Elune's hand at work. In their minds anyway.

Well. I think that'd be a little bit cumbersome too because that's really hard to communicate and it sounds kinda weak. Sort of like what they did with Kerrigan in Heart. "She wasn't mind...

Well I think there are other solutions, but they're not particularly elegant.

I think for me, I prefer the plot hole to the Forsaken being lame ducks or them mind controlling people.

Because I'm a fan of the franchise and if they're going to improve the game from a technological perspective, I'm gonna criticise them for not writing it well when I think they're making mistakes.

I'm not being churlish. I'm not a hypocrite for liking SC1 more than SC2 or thinking it's better.

I'm pretty sure that Lordaeron's Capital is going to mainly be one of those RTS warzones they described.
