Default Loose threads and unfinished stories

Similar to the inconsistencies thread. What stories are obviously seeded for next story development? Or plain unfinished story lines, that were abandoned halfway through and in dire need of completion.

Perhaps we can make a list. Stories include both minor and next-expac material.

Off the top of my head:

- Magatha Grimtotem is released by the player and she is in control of unknown powerful weapon.
- Many missing Cataclysm NPCs. I think among them is a female Troll trainer in Orgrimmar, who's brother served in Northrend. She said something about going to fight the Scourge, but the NPC is gone during Cata.
- Status of Neptulon and Naga conflict.
- Sabelian and what was he up to in Outland, when his kin is getting slaughtered and remade as Hunter Tier 13.

There should be an expansion where all Forsaken are killed.

For some reason this just made me laugh really hard, I think it's because of how deadpan you are about this despite the fact that it will never happen ever.

EDIT:

Also, why did you post that in -this- thread?


On that note:

Tyr is still missing right? No one knows if he's alive or dead?

What's up with that Pandaren nelf looking sea deity? Mazu?

Tirisfal Grove is weird still I guess.

Honestly it's been so long since I gave up on the lore that I've forgotten most of the stuff, and that's excluding what I gave up on during Cata since it was retconned or obviously forgotten about, like the Gem of the Five Khans.

I didn't know about the Gem.

Anyways, that is the purpose of the thread. Whatever story leftovers there are, let's find out about them and discuss the future potential. Because Blizz won't.

While I'm not one to say Forsaken should all be killed, I definitely think the entire Forsaken story is one giant loose end in itself.

There was that azurite 'bomb' you recovered during Azshara questing, as well as the (I think it was) Cloaking spell left in the highborne ruin.

What about those folks wiped out in Azhsara revamp, stuck in the sunken boat around a piece of azurite channeling a water breathing spell?

Or all that bloodstone the Forsaken used to mess with.

The "Argus Wake" the syndicate used to work with.

Oh wait I forgot one, Zul! He's been a background-only character since Cataclysm.

With that said, Genn should have a long heartfelt talk with his best friend about giving away the entire kingdom.

Thus ends begins the Crowley dynasty.

Actually Bloodfang dynasty sounds better, long live King Ivar!

- Emerald Dream, Rift of Aln (Unresolved)
- The Great Tree Portals (Kind of a loose thread, we know what they will be for)
- Alleria/Turalyon/Arator (Unresolved)
- The vanilla quest where you bring the Essence of Eranikus to a warlock in Winterspring? The questline comes to an abrupt halt and we don't hear anything further about Eranikus until he is attacking Moonglade.
- Medivh MIA, Garona MIA
- 10 years later the stupid Gnomes still can't get their city back.

Wasn't the Emerald Nightmare wrapped up in the Stormrage book?

Neptulon is back in the Abyssal Maw. The end of the dungeon got retconned. We drove Ozumat off and Neptulon survives. I hope Azshara and Zul are set as bosses for the next expansion, in an epic way.

I'm also curious about Magatha and Koltira, but the most about Crowley and the rest of Gilneas. It sure needs some clarification what EXACTLY happened and why Crowley surrendered Gilneas to the Forsaken (I mean, he HATES them, he surely had a good reason we don't know other than his daughter almost getting killed). Ivar and Crowley have lots of potential, they were really making the Alliance more 'grey' and 'feral'.

Malfurion and pals had contained the Nightmare in the Rift of Aln at the end of the book. I didn't reference it though, just the Rift and the Portals.

A tweet of Afrasiabi and I did Vash'jir last week + the dungeon and saw that Ozumat swam away with no Neptulon attached to his head (but Neptulon despawned though).

So 1+1=2 kind of.

I don't think Ivar is much for royalty, but I wouldn't mind Genn kicking Crowley out of his position as military commander over Gilnean forces and promoting Ivar Bloodfang instead.

Tyrus Blackhorn, the Satyr you help escape in Hyjal. Perfectly seeded loose end that has never been addressed since.

Dornaa and Salandria have yet to be seen as well. I hope their stories progress.
