Sylvanas talks about how anyone can be happy in the afterlife. Going through each zone, I kinda get that. You are rated to whatever afterlife that the Arbiter sees fit based on your life. Each zone has issues and mobs that must be dealt with or killed. It seems like you are bound to either work or suffer regardless of the afterlife that is chosen for you. Even the Fae.... sure, it looks beautiful and peaceful, but they have to fear the drust, tend groves, and essentially make the queen happy. Dunno about you guys, but my perfect afterlife would be something that would continuously make me happy and be at peace. If Shadowlands has taught us anything, the afterlife is far from that.Sylvanas has never been happy nor can she never seem to be at peace. Hence why she became a banshee, her soul wasn't at peace, so she was never sorted. She's doomed herself. What is causing her to never be at peace? I don't know.
I don't mind if they show Sylvanas being conflicted, but I don't really wanna see a redemption arc for her. Though Anduin attempting to redeem her would be in character for him. But it should ultimately fail. At the very most, I would be okay with Sylvanas coming to understand why she's wrong and why she should change course, but if that came about I would prefer if she simply chooses not to, and accept whatever fate has in store for her...she seems to be the type that would ultimately see something to the end, even if they discover it to be futile halfway through.As for Arthas, well, there is no true redemption arc for him. Even with the retcon that he was being controlled by The Jailer through Frostmourne and the Helm of Domination, he culled Stratholme before he had either of those artifacts. And there's a definite argument to be made that Stratholme was his greatest crime. At best, Arthas was heading for Revendreth (as it seems that, before the Arbiter was knocked out, no souls went directly to The Maw, but were sent there from Revendreth after it was determined they were irredeemable).
Eh, i saw this like last week when i was in Thorgast. How can this be new?'Edit. o wait, nvm, how did i end up in wowhead beta section? =D
