Default Top 3 Favorite Blizzard Characters

Title is self-explanatory, but who are your favorite three Blizzard characters?

1. Jim Raynor
2. Sarah Kerrigan
3. Tassadar

While there are many good characters in Warcraft, I almost think that their non-presence from my short list is more indicative of the inconsistent writing of their characterization. In contrast, apart from a handful of characters (e.g. Deckard Cain, Tyrael), most of the Diablo franchise characters are not highly memorable or noteworthy.

Arthas
Illidan
Sylvanas

Never played Starcraft or Diablo, so only Warcraft characters here.

1) Thrall (more pre-Cataclysm)
2) Raynor
3) Sylvanas (again, pre-Cataclysm)

I really liked Thrall in WC3 and early WoW, but his behavior became kind of weird and incomprehensible. Sylvanas also started out as someone who was evil but fascinating, an essence of violent and self-destructive revolution. Unfortunately, she seems much more two-dimensional now (I'm not disagreeing with Blizzard making her an out-and-out villain; she was pretty bad even in Vanilla. She just feels too much like an Arthas clone at this point).

I think Cataclysm Sylvanas is the closest Sylvanas has been to her War3 iteration since, well, War3.



  1. Infested Kerrigan
  2. Jim Raynor
  3. Arthas

Zeratul and Arcturus Mengsk are up there too. And Alexei Stukov, and Tassadar.

1. Muradin Bronzebeard. < An awesome Dwarf, nuff said.
2. Darius Crowley. < Good fighter/tactican + being a Gilnean Worgen + leading some rebels in a guerillawar = win.
3. Nobuundo. < Come on, that short story was damn good.

(Yeah, I only played WoW....)

Edit: Neh, Darius Crowley is cooler than Taylor.

1. Arcturus Mengsk (mostly his book and original SC incarnations)
2. Kael'thas Sunstrider (pre-WoW)
3. Grommash Hellscream

Special mention: Thrall, Sylvanas, Terenas, Doomhammer, Garosh, Ner'zul.

I am really sad I can't add the Lich King (post TFT) to that list, he has been so thoroughly ruined that I can't even give him a honorable mention.

Neutral Building

This is freaking me out.

It's almost like it's talking about the stuff at hand, but it's obviously a bot.

Are they evolving?

I remember Omacron mentioning that transsexuals were vain. To this day, I still wonder how some aspects of transhumanism are any less vain.

Did I state the contrary? Stop thinking of it as people changing their gender, and think of it as people who want to enhance their body so it'll suit their needs.

I thought I did explain my rationale, but if you want me to go more in depth I'd be happy to do so in another thread.

Nah, it's fine. I did try to avoid posting in that thread, after all.
