Really sad to see that after all these years and all of that insane profit blizz still can't hire more than 7-8 different voice actors.
Can you do this more than once on the same toon? Can you abandon it before turning it in and pick it up again? I only have 1 decent 110 haha
Ok, the scenario itself was a lot better than the whole Darkshore questline. Doing it with both my human mage and my blood elf demon hunter was worth it.Sylvanas (despite her dangerously Arthas-like actions and the way she insulted Saurfang -seriously, I'm surprised he didn't Cleave her in the spot-) and Jaina (and the first Azerothian Battlecruiser, as I call it) were really badass in the scenario.Also, Greymane you hypocrite, calling Sylvanas out of disrespecting Lordaeron's throne when he disliked Terenas, but well... he's a dog, as Sylvanas made clear, so it's expected for him to be unlikable.
Blizz does it again! So cool!
utterly pathetic, sylvanas is a twatwaffle and after doing the scenarios all you get is an ugly weapon an 19 gold. really worth our time blizzard. /sarcasm.youll never be forgiven for destroying darnassus either.
Hey! Entering the battlefield, and I mean, ENTERING THE BATTLEFIELD was absolutely thrilling, chilling and kind jaw dropping. I am Horde, so, we entered from the Undercity into the scorched, exploding, dusty, firey, loud and chaotic war zone. I said to my good friend who I play with as we did it together, "Now THIS is World of Warcraft!" and he agreed with excitement! The whooshing sounds of catapults, spells, explosions, the zipping sounds of arrows, the clanging of swords and axes, the mighty booms and rubble and dust. Really did a good job of making me feel like I was in constant danger and just barely trying to survive in the middle of a brutal yet exciting sensory overload. it truly was a battlefield that we entered and what an epic and great and fantastic experience. I truly loved it, it was amazing, ty blizzard!
Well done. Though my main is Horde and Forsaken, I have to say that I end these cinematics with great admiration for Anduin. When Anduin silences Genn Greymane he proves himself a good if not great leader. I think he has more trials before he can rise to the real greatness within him but he's surely a good part of the way along the correct road. He has always, even from boyhood, seemed to be a good and honorable person. I would never expect Sylvanus to surrender but her Pyhrrhic victory at Lordaeron is as horrible as the burning of Teldrassil. What was left out is the cinematic showing what has happened to the citizens of Undercity. Do they die of the Blight as the Night Elves of Darnassus died in Sylvanus' fire? Does she bear the weight of a genocide of the Forsaken in addition to the genocide of the Night Elves? She asks if Undercity has been evacuated but there is no answer and are we sure that she would care? And what of Saurfang and his surrogate son, Zakhan? For now I choose to believe that they have survived the battle and will be heard of again.At the end of the scenario I returned to Orgrimmar with those of us who survived to follow Sylvanus, turned in my quest then flew in toward the centre of the city. I froze. There above Grommash Hold spread the great blue wings of Terecgosa. Someone had just completed the quests for the legendary staff from The Firelands. These old, Undead eyes teared up for all that is now lost. Those indeed were better days, far better days.Of late we have been given to quoting poetry. There is one famous poem that is deeply embedded in WoW, Thomas Gray’s Elegy written in a Country Churchyard. This seems and apt time to rehearse its most famous stanza:The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow’r.And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,Awaits alike th’ inevitable hour.The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
This makes travel between Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor seriously inconvenient.Also, as one of my first toons is my Forsaken Warlock, I have been a supporter of The Dark Lady since Day 1. (Not exaggerating there.) This scenario is one step too far for me to condone, much less support. "Winning at any cost" is not a viable option, IMHO. I guess we'll see how this works out for Her.
So first of all, Teldrassil had to burn. Sylvanas was wronged and just as any other rational person would do, she needed to leave her mark on them. Call this just desserts, any woman out there who's been scorned can tell you the same. Why waste time with an assault when burning it to the ground accomplishes so much more? Also, lesson for real life, never let people get away with disrespecting you, and don't stop with wiping out one generation, shoot for 2 or 3.And the Alliance then goes after Lordaeron and sacrifices men and treasure just to go after one leader, which is completely irrational when all that was really needed was a bounty on her head. She's never surrounded by any real guards anymore so any assassin worth their salt could handle it. What were you going to accomplish putting her "under arrest"? Hold a trial of the millennium? Show us how tough but fair you get on leaders when they destroy an entire capital? Seriously, all virtue signaling by the little lion.This makes the second expansion in a row where the Alliance jumped to the conclusion that "Sylvanas is bad, we must kill her" because of faulty and bad information. She's been looking out for her people since day 1. The Alliance however, can't say they have a leader willing to go to the ends of the earth to insure their people's survival.Sylvanas is awesome. Always the best Horde leader and now the best Warchief.
So, hang on a second. We've spent 3 years ridding Azeroth of the Legion and Jaina could've just come and nuked them with her flying magical pirate ghost ship? Unbe-chuffing-lievable. Add that to the purge of Dalaran and I now loathe her more than super-villain Sylv. Nice work with the final cinematic tho. My entire group went from "Wow, Sylvanas is such a " to "OMG Sylvanas is sooooo cool!" lol ;)
Scenario was kinda lame.Why even fight that azerite war machine? At least there it does no damage (will be different for the war front, I know).From Alliance POV:"Onward""Oh, damn, can't fight the blight, retreat"Deus ex machina appears, freezes the undead and the blight, which shouldn't work for the latter."Onward""Oh, there are still walls there? I totally forgot"Deus: "Yeah, ok, have some magic cannons, but I'm nearly out of spells now""Onward""Oh, big horde army again, totally outnumbered, but we'll do this"Another deus ex machina appears: "Let us help you""Damn, blight again, can you lift us over it, deus 2?""Yeah, sure thing, since everyone seems to have forgotten temporarily that they have flying mounts themselves, we can cram 20 players into this one single seat flying machine, it'll work"Also, where is that mass rez scene from the trailer? Shouldn't that have happened sometime during the scenario?Funny note: While the Horde sure destroys a lot during their march to Darkshore, they don't leave a scar like the Alliance does when marching on Undercity. A scar broad enough to be seen on the map, far more wide than the scar leading through Silvermoon.
I for one love a fully fleshed out villain and can appreciate the grim direction Sylvanas has taken. Saurfang is annoyingly whiny.
