Odyn's val'kyr also seem to use the Light and possibly Tyr's vrykul followers too.

That's true, but that's all from the recent expansion and/or Chronicle, so that's new lore. I wanted to know if there were any older references about the Titans using the Light.

One can say that arcane was used to construct their bodies, as it is used today to manipulate the elements, and maybe some "hard-coded" systems, while Light was invoked to imbue the constructs with spirits or, as in this case, free will. So, material and spiritual sphere; probably not as well-defined in terms of what can be affect by which kind of energy, as it might seem, but still.

Good point, however we don't know that, storm dragons might be an independant/lost brood of blue dragons for example. Or as ARM said, elemental dragons that became flesh indeed.

Without going down to "Bad Blizzard writing", what is the likely realistic reason as to why the Ebon Blade started working with the Lich King again?

Friends close, enemies closer.

Honestly, I don't know why people were up in arms about it in the first place.

Pragmatism, I suppose. When the world's about to end you do what you can, even ally with someone you normally wouldn't, plus Bolvar isn't Arthas, as far as malice and power go, so it's not that far fetched. I think Darion also mentioned that in return for their service, Bolvar would hold the Scourge in line? Though it feels like they're a bit too subservient to him considering how he was going to keep the scourge contained/controlled anyway*, and he also benefits from the Legion's downfall, so it's not like he's doing anyone a favor.

*You'd think the Scourge would be better used as extra troops against the Legion, unless Bolvar isn't strong enough to keep his undead from the Nathrezim's own control.

Wasn't it mentioned somewhere that Jaina killing Sunreavers was a bug?

I think it's more how Bolvar is a super-dick and having them murder people to raise them, including dragons, and also the ebon-blade are being dicks force-choking argent folks and whatnot.

Don't ask, don't tell. At least, that's what NCIS has taught me.

Because I posted it in the wrong thread.

2/What was Garrosh's actual motivation/logic with the Siege of Orgrimmar? "They will come for you." "Yes, I'm COUNTING on it!"

Er, why, exactly?

3/Why was Vol'jin given a funeral pyre? Trolls are, literally, the most unsuitable race to burn their dead given their culture. Orcs and Tauren do, fine, that's well established in the Lore, but I seriously think Blizzard just dropped the ball on this one.
Thoughts?

You already got answers. There is not that much of a plothole.

This thread tends to be more active, and I'm interested in more thoughts.

And I'll ask you here then: How are Shamanism and Hair related, exactly?

Hair leads to vanity, so as a proper jedi, Thrall had to shave his head.

Sometimes people shave their head. It's a thing that people do.

Would it have been better if we got a short story about thrall shaving his head? Maybe. It could have made for engaging reading. Then again...

I must say, Helya and Helhelm's undead syle worked better than what WoW did for the Scourge. The Scourge are too mechanical from what WC3 established.
