Rommath, Halduron and Lor'themor and so forth would be reasonably easy to implement. They did all the Culling of Stratholme bosses apparently, so I'd expect to see mini-bosses like this.

She wants power and control. And she'll kill whoever it takes to get to that point. The more conflict she creates, the more people need to turn to her for help.

I get that, I don't love her, but she's easily the most proactive character in the story. She's the only one who seems to want something and seems to have the drive to achieve it. Everyone else is...

But like, that's the thing I really take exception to. This is WarCraft. There is no divine/natural karmic retribution here.

The world is indifferent. The heroes and the righteous don't always...

I mean they'd basically split the faction between the monsters who've always been genocidal monsters and the rest of the Horde.

Magatha is too evil and amoral? That sounds perfect for Sylvanas. Especially if she wants to install her as a puppet.

And eh, how much characterisation did Baine really have before this expansion?...

I've never really been a fan of Saurfang. He always feels like a really contrived character and his personality doesn't appeal to me.

I'm down for Sylvanas just winning. Not being redeemed, not...

I'm pretty underwhelmed by Baine's characterisation and where they've taken his story but I don't think it's a huge betrayal of his character or anything.

There was clearly tension with Sylvanas...

I dunno if they can do Quel'danas without messing with the map design of the level. (Even on the over world map in Reign of Chaos: Quel'danas exists) But they'll probably make Silvermoon resemble the...

I mean if they're going to add cosmetic options for Night Elves they might as well add a more fitting 'amazonian jungle woman' hair look while they're at it.

Sorry am I at the wrong time stamp? All I heard him talk about was how he never intended for Saurfang to be a major character back in classic WoW.

Uh, how?

She's certainly a character, even if up until this point she's been written erratically and completely inconsistently. (But that applies to every character in the game)

I think as soon as Horde players had a choice about whether they wanted to side with Saurfang or Sylvanas they revealed their hand: there will not be a Sylvanas raid this expansion.

As much as they have a characterisation, the RoC and tFT Night Elves are pretty well in line with one another. Especially since tFT really focuses...
