What a amazing story! I not big on how blizz is finishing the legion to fast but this war of light and shadow will be super cool!Now it is just me our did aleria just told us how the next expansion will end? Her turning in some type of old good and having and army of shadow! I hope that she don't turn into a enemy but instead she still their power so we can kill the old gods and don't kil the planet in the process.
Love the audio. Great that we can finally get some answers as to how it all happened, how the time went whilst they were in the twisting nether & how Turylon become to have a longer lifespan! Love the way Alleria used the void to get them of Argus when they were in trouble! Answered alot of questions for me!These posters are awesome, if I won one, i'd put it up over my headboard in my room, regardless of what my boyfriend said! 🤣🤣
I really enjoyed these plays, and I found myself thinking about the voice actors as I listened. It was very interesting to hear some of the charisma invested into them, and I learned more about the Void and the Light than I expected to. I am ultimately curious about Lorthraxion too.
I think that audio drama was totally great. I also really liked the one with Gul'dan and the Tomb of Sargeras, tough this one is much better. It has that impact. The lore behind why they were absent is just a masterpiece from blizzard. And it totally fits with the stuff we got in 7.3.I remember back in the days I used to play on a RP server where I met two very nice people, they were my guldies and friends. We were having a lot of good times together. We enjoyed talking about lore, speculating and all of that stuff. And I remember that Erza always said: "I really wonder what happened to Alleria and Turalyon. I hope we will see them in Warlords of Draenor!". Well, we didn't. And both of them are now gone. I really miss them and I wish we could talk about it together, once more.
I have been wondering for years what had happened to Alleria and Turalyon, just imagining them being stranded for years and how it would have felt. It's nice to finally get some clarity on that. I'm also reading "Beyond the Dark Portal" right now and its very fitting to get more into their story now with everything happening in the expansion.
Wow do I love these audio dramas! I hope they keep them up!I think the most surprising part was the revelation about the Void when Locus-Walker was training Alleria, the bit about seeking every path and believing them all to be true. That really opens up the madness that surrounds the Old gods - simultaneously believing all possibilities to be truth would shatter a mortal mind. It was also nice to have the thousand years and Turalyon's longevity explained. My only worry is that the story not lead in a direction of "twist! The Light is actually evil!" It would just be kind of annoying and the sort of thing we see from amteurish writing so frequently. More interesting would be the idea of them playing off of each other, with the cyclical Naaru having a major presence in it (and Xe'ra's actions more the result of a zealot avoiding her true nature).
I'm liking these stories about characters' background.. It gives players an insight to the lore especially to those new players who joined late in the game..
I haven't listened yet. Does this explain the time gap? She and Turalyon have only been gone for like 30 years in-game, so unless the Void did some kind of weird time-skip thing…
I really loved the Gul'dan audio dramas they did before the Legion Launch and am really looking forward to listening to this one over the weekend. I'm a sucker for lore that is found outside of the game.
I'm very glad for this. The story explained some things that needed it. And Lothraxion rocks!
On Draenor, we had 'good' shadow priest npcs (with varying levels of sanity) with the talon priests, with Anzu and Ka'alu being opposed to the old gods. I know WoD lore is tricky, but Reshad or Ishaal could provide an alternate path (or rescue) for where Locus-Walker seems to be leading Alleria. I look forward to finishing listening to the audio dramas. I wish more existed.
I'm so glad we are finally getting some proper backstory on the two. It should go unquestioned that a lot of lore nerds are soaking themselves now. Me included :3.
Alleria is 1000x more awesome after reading this story. Next xpac confirmed to be old god/void-themed if it wasn't obvious already.
What a great way to introduce more lore. I love how WoW lore can get introduced in so many ways both in-game and out. I hope to hear more of this kind of stuff. And to hear more about Turalyon.
I am speechless! I just loved it! She is immune to all attacks from the demon assassin. What a show! And I still do not like Turalyon.
I think it's great we're finally getting to know what happened to the pair while they've been gone. It's been nice to finally put an actual character to the lore we've had for so long. My only concern is Atiesh, Afrasiabi said they had it! (I hope someone gets this Blizzcon joke)
I really loved these 3 episodes. I really wanted to know how Turalyon and Alleria disappeared, an how Alleria met the Locus-Walker. And it was very interesting to see that N'Zoth reference, I think that next expansion will be awesome. However, the problem with that audio was the music: sometimes, it was a bit too loud, but the story was still awesome.
I have always loved the lore of Warcraft but in the recent years blizzard has just taken great strides in delivering that lore. I was really surprised how open Lothraxion was about being part of the legion. Personally I think Alleria would be a great character to use to bring in a conflict expansion between the heroes of azeroth and the void lords. Also after hearing the story and watching X'era and Illidan in game I think both Light and Shadow see us as pawns and that's just messed so they both need to learn the truth about us mortals
I occasionally listen to audiobooks and the production of this went above and beyond the norm—especially for something offered free of charge. This was an unexpected and welcome surprise!
If there is one thing i've learnt in life, there needs needs to be balance. Without light, shadow cannot be. Without shadow, light would be overpowering...Fantastic audio, and great story just filling up the world... of warcraft
