We see night Elven ghosts take both forms.

When you do the Rheastrasza/Wrathion egg questline, does it go into any detail regarding the Titan artifact that is used to help purify the egg, or how exactly it's used to do so? I think it was called Eye of the Watchers, but I can't find much information on it.

Maybe it's fortunate that worgen can only give birth to humans/night elves. Otherwise some druids would have interesting families.

They can still choose whether to bite their kids or not, though...

Yeah, but a druid still won't give birth to cubs, kittens or fawns, which is good.

Just because Worgen can't, doesn't mean it applies to other forms.

Lewd. (It probably does, though.)

By the way, what was up with Shadumbra, Ursangous and Sharptalon?
  • Supposedly, Ursangous was simply a bear that was trained by the elves, but could it be that it was a feral druid or something even more powerful?
  • Sharptalon seems to be summonable, by druids, if they have a hippogryph feather. Could this mean that it is a spirit?
  • Finally, Shadumbra... Shadumbra, "the great cat of the forest", with which you can become one, in order to defend the forest... Definitely a spirit, right?

So when exactly did Satiel kill everyone in Deadwind Pass? Because I'm watching the Affliction artifact quest but IIRC Deadwind Pass was normal during the First War

I think it must have been before since the description on the website says the Guardian stopped her, but there'd be no reason for Sargeras-Medivh to stop her since Sargeras sent her.

Sargeras-Medivh was sort of a fused entity, different from both of them. Medivh himself commented on how the two identities were constantly fighting for the control over the fused body.

Malygos was making arcane break up to the surface with his ley line shenanigans. The rifts all around Northrend like between Coldarra and the mainland are Titan bruises!

I was thinking about that the other day. Does that make leylines blood vessels?

I always wondered just what the Aspects knew about the purposes of the various Titanic facilities. They seem like a separate system to the Keepers, but I was pretty sure it was the overarching job of the Dragonflights to watch over the Old Gods. It's been a while since I read up on that.

If Ley-Lines are blood vessels, think of what that means for Karazhan. I'm thinking the Titans set it up as a literal finger on the pulse.

Since night elves had legends about satyr before Xavius was turned into one, and myths and legends occasionally are based on true occurrences, could a kind of satyr predate Xavius's ilk?

While they could be night elves that turned into demons even before Xavius, like Archimonde's tutor was a demon even before the rest of the Eredar, I'm leaning more towards a Wild God's children. The goat and/or sheep version of Cenarius's children.

Sure, why not.

Though it makes me curious why they'd have such a sinister reputation then.

Old God Corruption?

Sheep have got the eyes for it...

Maybe they were just legends before and Sargeras was intentionally playing it up when he reshaped Xavius.

Where and what are these satyr legends recorded?

Or Sargy had seen/used these satyrs elsewhere in his crusade and just brought that idea with him to Azeroth.

A lot of places you can go with this.

Exemplars of the darker side of nature, like quillboars.

@MCA:
They are mentioned in the WotA novels.

Didn't they only become jerks after Agammagan died?

Or did they not even exist until after he died?

Dang timelines.

You know to this day I still have no idea what the average High/Blood Elf lifespan is. All I know was Anasterian was crazy old in WC2-3.

The tutor wasn't a demon he was just a guy who summoned them or void things. Also I'm sure he was a leader among the Eredar

He was a man'ari, based on the artifact's name. Yes, he was a leader, but among the pre-Legion eredar.

I never disputed pre-Legion Nazja I know what I'm talking about. Maybe his skull became corrupted afterwards.

We know there were 2 kings between Dath'remar and Anasterian in a span of 4000 years. We know that Anasterian lasted 3000 years and Dath'remar another 3000 years after the WotA. But Dath'remar had the gift of the Aspects and thousands of years of siphoning the Well of Eternity.

Aaand we know arcane magic can prolong life, and the high elves lived around the Sunwell. So.... Yeah.
