I just read that as "Fuck you Gul'Dan I don't care about your beef."

Does Gul'dan find his skeleton?

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

I know one company that is about 15 years behind on audio dramas.

Maybe 70 if you want to count radio dramas.

Maiev confirmed still a bitch. Khadgar learned the raven trick from his mentor. Which seems to oppose the beta mention of him getting it from Atiesh.

I like how Khadgar and Gul'dan are actually going to fight one on one. They never really got the chance to before in Draenor.

Maiev is a bitch and why is she still in charge of the Watchers

Although I like the explanation for why they chose Illidan to hold Sargeras's spirit: he has the power of the Eye of Sargeras in him.

God, those voices are hilarious...

Also, thanks for reminding us of the Cordana business, Blizzard.

Ok.

I liked how Khadgar decided to face check traps, or that fel traps are a thing. Also another case of child killing. Gul'Dan is getting up there as best villain.

Thinking about it more (because it's too warm to sleep), there's a very simple solution to the whole "yet another expansion has a night elf fail to do her job, causing shit to go down big time", which simultaneously makes the Burning Legion look like a bigger threat.

While Gul'dan tries to open a portal in the Tomb, Cordana prepares to unleash the prisoners of the Vault all in one go, maybe after killing off the demon hunters. (That, or timeline dependent, the Vault's attacked so soon after Gul'dan's work that every bit of extra defense/removing prisoners/artifacts is critical)

Maiev helps Khadgar? We maybe lose the demon hunters, the Vault is overwhelmed by its former captives and the few demons they can summon, and while the forces of Azeroth valiantly hold against them (a la Broken Shore) they break into the Tomb of Sargeras, and start summoning.

Maiev secures the vault? Gul'dan starts summoning at the Tomb, and they secure a massive invasion force and fortify the portal before the Forces of Azeroth get there. Then the Broken Shore happens.

Not only does it stop Blizzard from pretty much saying "10000 years of doing a job makes you shit at it", not only does stop Maiev basically being "Please hate me" incarnate, but it makes the Burning Legion this utterly unstoppable foe- they failed on alternate draenor. Now they have a backup plan. The backup plan has a backup/side plan which, short of everything going perfectly for Azeroth, sees the Legion unleash their armies upon Azeroth. Nothing Maiev or Khadgar could've done would've stopped the Legion, short of just being plain better. Azeroth's first line of defense was simply powerless against the Legion.

So... let me get this straight: Sargeras sent his Avatar to Azeroth to bait out Aegwynn, the Guardian on duty, in order to accomplish the following goals:
  • Get her to defy the Council of Tirisfal and keep the Guardian mojo for herself.
  • Create a vessel for him to plant himself in that would give him even MORE agency (Medivh).
  • Bury the corpse of the avatar in a fortified sarcophagus that, through subconscious manipulation of what Aegwynn was doing while BUILDING said sarcophagus, Sargeras crafted a key that would open a fucking huge-ass portal to grant the Legion egress to Azeroth...
  • ... but never fucking turn the key?

What if the key was a part of the older building? The temple of Elune? Perhaps Khadgar didn't know that another building stood in the same spot before the Tomb of Sargeras.

If only blizzard could provide these things ingame .
