Pile of ashes? Do you think a tree that large would just turn into a pile of ashes?

It'll be charred, sure. The surface will be burnt. So, it'll be a giant burnt tree in the middle of the ocean for the Forsaken to claim as Burnt Dead Treelandia.

Unfortunately this means there's no way the Alliance keeps it unless there is an equivalent amount of content for Horde in Northern Kalimdor.

You have a Sunwell that can put up a nigh impenetrable shield if prepared properly. I'm thinking Quel'thelas is pretty damn safe, and no longer accepting pilgrims.

Me too. We just had two boring expansions of Power of Friendshipcraft. It feels like Warcraft coming back.

And let's be honest, Alliance vs Horde bitchfests is what kept this forum active. If it can bring back WoW discussions and finally get rid of political stuff on this board, you'll all be glad.

Isn't genocide a second nature for the Horde?

And? It's also stupid when we do it then.

Why do people think this sort of thing is a valid excuse?

It's been WarCraft all along.

Another faction war just brings the irrational people with nothing useful to say back out of the woodwork.

WoW's factions are tailor-made for stupid people. It's a brainless story and gaming mechanic for brainless people who have difficulty coping with non-binary comprehension.

So the major "add on" races to the Alliance and the Horde (Night Elves and Undead respectively) post WC3 are getting shafted in terms of racial capitals.

There's also some ancient ruins that have revenants guarding them.

As for the Lordaeron vs Teldrassil thing; they said Stromgarde was only ONE of the war fonts. I guarantee there will be one in Kalimdor with the exact same plot but the factions reversed where its the Horde trying to stop the Alliance from retaking stuff.

Also: According to the dungeon journal, Zandalari are in a civil war between Rastakhan (who wants to join the Horde) and Zul (who wants to destroy the Horde) we fight his second in command in Atal'Dazar.

Skycapp'n Krag from Hearthstone is the first boss in Freehold.
I heard out there that Maiev was killing Nightborne and Blood Elf.

is it true that quelthalas is safe?

Did any important night elf characters got killed?

Funny thing: The Scourge couldn't do a thing to this city but the Horde made it.

Fighting the Horde is both good and morally correct.

Long term I'd want the faction war to subside, but I think that that is an idiotic idea as long as certain characters and factions were characterized in such an evil manor.

Ignoring, what happened in Gilneas, Hillsbrad, and Sylvanas' use of plague and resurrection would just be a massive hole.

Do things that address the biggest divides between the factions so that peace between the two can make sense and not feel contrived.

The floodgates are open. Alliance and carebears dehydrating on all fronts.

I'd be a riot if they added Naga for Night Elves mid expansion when Azshara appears/is defeated. Dark Iron are cool but Lightforged are so meh.

I'm 75% sure that those big fat Kul Tirian Human will be a sub race, or whatever they are called.

I wish Blizzard would stop making these drippy trailers with a character monologuing about their beliefs. They're so tiresome at this point and they absolutely have the technology to do better.

Also I wish they'd just stop trying to do things with Jaina, who's basically a totally different person now.

So uh, I guess we're kind of going back to the old World again. I like that. I always feel like the more we get away from the core world of Azeroth the less interesting the game is.

Sick of the dumb faction war, because it's never done particularly well. And the opening cinematic was pretty meh. Lotta shouting, lotta action that wasn't even particularly exciting.

I never meant to imply the logic was justified, just that the precedent exists in-universe and out of stupid reasons for stupid things. None of this is surprising.

Less talking in cinematics, period. I just don't get it; these characters sound fine in-game, but ever since Cataclysm, as soon as they're prerendered it's like the voice actors are told to deliberately speak in cadences and pitches that real people don't naturally use to speak, so it all ends up sounding hammy and unnatural.

Consequently the voice work during quests and in-game cinematics sounds better directed than that of the fancy release trailers.

In fact...on second thought I actually can imagine why they might do it. Starting with Deathwing's they've probably been deliberately tailoring the trailers to be variably chopped up and spliced for use in advertising on television and Youtube, so the voice recording is coached to be shouty and overly dramatic so they can punctuate the sound beats in a commercial.

I actually got to see that on reddit. I liked how you worded your post and added it to my own and got this guy raging at me for 'making shit up'.

I actually love the idea of an expansion being faction war centered. I am just worried they will go down the Cataclysm route...

Anyhow - If more sub races are planned, I had an idea to introduce Pandaria (Once again) to the faction war spotlight without being the center of the expansion; and way of making Pandaren perhaps ...Relevant again. Somehow? In their respective factions that is. Now Huojin and Tushui won't be Horde or Alliance specific as it was focused in MoP. I can see many in the Alliance incorporating Huojin ideals into the Alliance's strong traditional roots - Acting, taking back lost ancestral lands. While many in the Horde like Trolls and Tauren can mesh well with Tushui. I digress. I suppose the Pandaren "Subraces" would be from Mainland Pandaria opposed from the Isle.

Alliance: Kun-Lai Pandaren - The more hardy folk of the Pandaren stock. The Pandaren of Kun-Lai pride themselves of keeping tradition, having guarded close to the Vale. But in recent times, the Zandalari have assaulted, invaded and occupied their land; waking up their former slaver masters, the Mogu from the past. Constantly fighting over land with the Yaungol, one can wonder why the Pandaren of Kun-Lai are more intimidating and socially aggressive than their brethren.

-But with the renewed conflict, the Zandalari storm the shores of Kun-Lai once more. Not in the name of their crazed prophet, but in the name of the Horde. Recruiting the warlike Yaungol under the banner of the Horde, the Pandaren of Kun-Lai look towards the Alliance in safeguarding their precious summit.

I'd wager with that. A noticeable difference could be say; Kun-Lai Pandaren are more tall, burly - Warrior-like. Grizzly?

The Horde: Pandaren from Krasarang join with the Horde - More agile and tactical Pandaren; fielding the more covert Shado-Pan. Alliance incursions into Krasarang, and exploitation of the region's resources have displaced the locals. Namely by force.

I know Pandaren probably won't get subraces and the like, but seeing Pandaria and the Pandaren back in some relevancy to the factions again would be neat.
