  1. (Mortica edit) spoiler gap so this doesn't show up in the side bar







    (/end Mortica edit)

    Part 2/final, smacking the shit out of Wrathion and then him giving us goodies afteward (As well as another monologue):


  2. So now that the book finally came out, I can unleash all the lores for y'all. I actually got the book about a month ago as a review copy, so I've been itching to get out a review. Its full of spoilers, so beware:


    If bullet points are your thing, read below. Warning, obvious spoilers are obvious:

    Score: 3/5


    - Mo' Loa, mo' betta

    - Expanded look at Pandaren philosophy

    - Connection to 5.3 (however small)

    - Taran Zhu. Best thing evar.

    - Chen is awesome.


    - Story is irrelevant, forgettable, and has no lasting impact

    - Simply another "power up" book

    - Dramatic Tension sapped

    - Tyrathan sucks

    - Antagonist's plan is nonsensical

    - Story "reveals" fall flat

  3. I like the Warlock ones...

    I also don't get the mentality about BC gear. That expansion arguably had the wonkiest fucking looking stuff ever.

    The only real Warlock stuff I've liked from Vanilla/BC was Tier 2. Most of my favorites are at least Wrath onward (<3 Putress' set)

  4. I was reflecting on the current faction leaders and which were and were not successful, and I found myself stopping at Lor'themar for a moment. On one hand, I disliked how it took him 3 expansions to get any legitimate content, but on the other, his role in Mists of Pandaria is pretty badass. He went from just another "meh" character for me to one in this expansion that I really found loving and could see him become a serious contender for the position of Warchief (Even though I know they probably aren't considering him). I made a video about his history can you can see here:


  5. So I've been thinking about the conclusion of the story for 5.4. Unless Blizzard throws us a huge curveball, it's most likely going to end with both the Horde and Alliance going back to the whole "cold war" aspect of their disagreement. The Alliance will probably leave Orgrimmar and the Horde will rebuild. Both factions will be united again respectively. And things will be boring. So I began thinking about how Blizzard could create more interesting conflicts within both the Horde and Alliance.

    Granted that the Horde literally just split because their Warchief was a douchebag, I think there's a sweet spot between "Having a controversial figure" within your faction and "Having said figure go completely bonkers and need to be taken out." Sylvanas fills the role for the Horde to a degree, although she seems to be quickly approaching villain status.

    The Alliance's side was a different story. During the Mists of Pandaria storyline, the Alliance basically becomes a huge love fest. Tyrande is reigned in from her stupidly-written role, and 5.3 brings Moira back into the fold. There is quite literally nobody left in the Alliance that questions what their leader is doing. And, in my opinion, that is supremely boring. So I began thinking about a role that could be filled, one in the Night Elves. One that represented the old school way of thinking "We probably shouldn't get in everyone's business." And after discounting Fandral Staghelm because he was made legit crazypants and a raid boss, I fell on Maiev Shadowsong. I took a look at her history and what could have been an awesome anti-hero for the Night Elves, and ultimately expressed annoyance and disappointment in the role that Blizzard placed her in: "Anti-hero who goes crazy." I made a video about her for those who are curious about her history:


    I wonder, does anybody else think she could have fit that role Fandral filled before going crazy? I think she could, and really easily too. Unfortunately I think now she's just going to show up as a raid boss whenever Illidan returns.

  6. So Blizzard added in something that I absolutely love in Mists of Pandaria, lore for the sake of lore. For those of you who don't know by now, Lorewalker Cho heads a faction called "The Lorewalkers" that have to do with all of those lore objects you can interact with on Pandaria. After you find all of the objects in a particular subject, you receive a letter from Lorewalker Cho, where he calls you to his headquarters above the Mogu'shan Vaults, and you can see a little scene explaining bits of Pandarian lore.

    I had realized I hadn't finished all the 5.2 ones, and it made me think if people would like to see not only the 5.2 ones, but all of the Mists of Pandaria ones. I've separated them into groups of three:

    a.) The three 5.2 stories - Lei Shen, Ra-Den, and the Zandalari

    b.) The Saurok, Hozen, and Jinyu

    c.) The Yaungol, Mantid, and Mogu

    d.) Emperor Shaohao, Liu Lang, and origins of the Monk

    Oddly enough, the first one I actually recorded was the 3 new ones added in 5.2, where you can see here:


    I'll be uploading the other ones to this thread as I get them up on Youtube.

  7. I would at least recommend dropping 5 bucks for the Preferred Status. You get a lot of nifty benefits from going from f2p to Preferred Status.

    I can't remember all of them, but it's something like an increase from 2 slots on your account for characters to 6, among other things. It's definitely worth dropping the 5 bucks (Which is the cheapest amount of coins you can buy from the Cartel -- and the act of spending money on anything bumps you up to preferred).

    You also get more inventory space, ect. It still isn't the greatest, but its much better than the nonsense version of the game that is the f2p version.

  8. I made a history of Wrathion and a bit of speculation at the end of how I'd like to see things turn out. You can see the history here:


    (Just as a personal note, I know I've been linking a lot of stuff from my own Youtube, and I don't want to make it seem like I'm abusing TNG for views. If I've crossed a line at some point, I'm sorry and I'll stop if someone lets me know. I just figured some people would find it interesting and that this subforum really isn't that active)
