Chloroform's a hell of a drug.

I shouldn't probably been asking this but i hope you could clarify something about Wrathion.

Wrathion calls Deathwing his father various times in english, but someone in wowpedia mentioned that in german the word that is used means something like ancestor.

Sorry if i'm annoying Omacron, i just want to understand how Wrathion biological relationship with Deathwing is because of confusing translations

Deathwing has been unable to have children ever since his body became molten during or before the time of the War of the Ancients. So unless the eggs gestated for thousands of years, it seems highly unlikely that Wrathion is Deathwing's son.

However, that's not to say he wouldn't be seen as a paternal figure within the black dragonflight, even if he himself doesn't have any recent descendents.

Deathwing still mated with his mates, only one was able to survive his "mating habits" Sinestria(sp) but she was horribly scared because of it.

But Wrathion's mother is in game, she is the one dragon that the red dragon has captured and was using in her experiments to create a purified black dragon egg. But in all likelyhood, the father was another black dragon since only one dragon was able to survive mating with him and we have no record of any others surviving, unless Blizzard pulls one out of nowhere, which they could do.

It is made pretty clear that Wrathion is Deathwing's son, though admittedly I don't know what exactly makes me think that.

There's a lot of problems with that theory, mostly the Nyxondra surviving the ordeal when it was stated only sinestra managed to do, but in this case is the difference between the use of Father in English and Urvater (which is ancestor/forefather) in German.

Refresh my memory, is there any specific mention of when the egg was laid? Or even of when Nyxondra was impregnated? I'm just sort of spitballing here, but what if perhaps DW had sex with her back before he turned into a walking death-by-sex machine and dragons can either delay pregnancy after insemination (a bit of a stretch admittedly), or perhaps the eggs can go dormant for long periods before hatching?

The fact that it is specifically stated? Deathwing is his father.

Night of the Dragon does say that “Sintharia was the only one of his consorts known to have survived
those matings.” However, just because she was the only one known to Krasus doesn’t mean she was the only one. Also, who knows what wasn’t retconed in that book anyway. Sinestra wasn’t really scarred in game beyond claw marks, not to mention that fact that she appeared after supposedly being disintegrated at the end of NotD. Nyxondra could easily have mated with Deathwing.

Even if originally it wasn’t apparent that DW was Wrathion’s father in the low-level questing, it became very apparent when Wrathion became an actual character beyond just an egg. Blizz obviously decided it was cooler to have Wrathion be “the Black Prince” rather than just a random black.

Blizzard is an American company. It was written in English first by people who speak English. The German translation means absolutely nothing.

Deathwing is Wrathion's father, even if NotD makes it seem problematic.

Lore questions such as about Wrathion should go here, anyways.

That and common sense is that he can't answer anything anyway. He's an intern not some Lead CDev.
