My dk was one of the first on my server. Collected some ice crown server first kills too. The servers went offline right as the first wing rush happened and stayed offline long enough for most of the raid guilds to tie on first kills. Always get a laugh thinking about it. All of the guilds that downed bosses in first wing were credited as having tied. Usually gets a laugh when i tell that story as its as close as i ever got to claiming a server first. I completed the dk order halll series and have the mount so i have done bolvars quests including the slaughter at ruby dragonshrine. I want a more general return for bolvar as i fondly remember turning in quests in stormwind and watching people freak out as dragons assaulted the throne room. I liked watching people, especially lowbies try to help and get owned then bolvar would just crush the dragons.
Use the Force Sylvanas. Don't rely on the targeting system.
There is no indication that warfronts would need to be in at the start of the expansion. IT is always possible these form some expansion content post release, like the ship yard, argus etc. Given the content available at blizzcon i would not be surprised to see beta in the next few weeks.
Bwonsamdi? Is that derived from Baron Samedi, master of cementaries, death and afterlife? Who when summoned using the dark path becomes Carrefour, Tyrant of the Crossroads?
"Death be a doorway and my spirit a window... HAHHAHHAHHA!"As an Alliance player, I like that we'll learn more about the former warchief of the Horde.
I'm not sure how random it was. I mean, it may not have been a glorious or wretched death like Varian... but they were at war. I like that they are exploring characters even in death. I liked him best as warchief because he seemed much more grounded. It seems his role in lore is more important in the afterlife...
Now i have to lvl up horde char
IMO Vol'jin will take a place of a dead Loa, becaming one himself.....
Darkspear never die!
Vol'jin deserved more screen time, glad he's getting it. Hoping it's good ;)
My main worry about Sylvanus as war leader of the Horde is that she has not been very discerning in her choices of men. The first time I entered the Royal Quarter of Undercity my first thought was that having a doom lord like Varimanthus as her chief advisor would not end well. If Thrall alive and the spirit of dead Vol'jin are around to advise her I feel much better about her leadership. One of the reasons I play a Horde toon is that my long experience with humans leads me to have little trust in them. As for Vol'jin being Bwonsamdi...well...Baron Saturday is a complicated figure combining aspects of a devil with those of Charon, the ferryman of Greek Myth who carries the souls of the dead into the underworld. That role is implicit in his epithet as "Tyrant of the Crossroads" when we understand the crossroads as the intersection of life and death. He is Baron Saturday because in Christian mythology the day between Jesus of Nazareth's death on the cross and his resurrection is the day when he descends into hell. It also is the day of the week associated with the Titan Saturn, darkest of the ancient planets and the planet associated with death. Bwonsamdi is, above all a mediator between the world and souls of the dead to the living world. In that role the spirit of Vol'jin would be a very happy choice.
I have been saying since the moment that Vol'jin died in that great cinematic that his story is very clearly not even close to being done. I have seen countless comments, statements, and YouTubers each expressing extreme disappointment regarding Vol'jin's death. The vast majority of these fans, besides Nobbel and a few others, have all assumed that Vol'jin's story is over.... done... finished... history! Not even close..... and I've been saying that his story now has limitless potential to become something greater than it ever could have been if he was still alive.I honestly don't understand how someone could watch his death cinematic and actually be convinced that it's the end of Vol'jin's story line. The Cinematic was brilliant, it immortalized Vol'jin. You literally had the entire Horde faction standing around this great symbolic Funeral Pyre, united as one.... "Help me avenge Vol'jin!" Roooaaarrrr the crowd goes wild! Too many people focused on Sylvanas instead of the symbolism. It was about this great and loved character who died, and the Horde, even the cunning and ruthless Forsaken, stood together and pledged to avenge Vol'jin. The point of Sylvanas reaction was so completely missed. She was completely stunned that she was named Warchief. She was truly devastated that Vol'jin died, and that is saying a lot coming from Sylvanas. The way she stood in the same place for hours... it highlighted how completely taken aback she felt that Vol'jin had honored her in such a way, and that he personally told her to step out of the shadows, and lead their people to honor, and victory. When he was stabbed, he asked Sylvanas not to let the Horde be slaughtered that day too, and she did as Vol'jin wished, knowing it would mean "betraying" the Alliance.. Vol'jin died believing fervently that Sylvanas leading the Horde was key. This wasn't some choice taken on a whim, it was essentially Vol'jin's religion, his very purpose in life, and that he believed in it unto his dying breath. So many significant events and points that were completely missed! Sylvanas generally isn't a character that cares about anyone but herself, and her people(The Forsaken). This is why her reaction is so significant. She actually cares about the Horde as a whole, and she wants to avenge Vol'jin, and honor his wishes. If you read the lore you will see that Sylvanas is rather ruthless. Which is why the cinematic is so significant. No other Non-Forsaken character could have inspired Sylvanas the way that Vol'jin did. Additionally other Forsaken were shown at the Funeral Pyre and praising and pledging to avenge Vol'jin.Sylvanas walked up to Vol'jin all swinging her shoulders, and looking so cunning and ruthless, and then after Vol'jin's last words and death, it left her standing there completely lost and devastated. Sylvanas showing those kinds of emotions because of Vol'jin's influence is incredible! That cinematic was incredible, and yet the response to it was a bunch of unimaginative brats crying about it, and closing their minds, and their hearts off to the potential future, and off to the fact that death in Warcraft doesn't mean &*!@ when it comes to story lines, and a characters potential in the future. If all of the people crying over Vol'jin had actually taken the time to learn about Troll lore, and their story lines. Especially the Loa..... if they had actually learned about the history of Vol'jin, his people, their "religion".... the other Trolls who have become spirits and played a part in the story after they "died"..... then they would as clear as day seen that Vol'jin has been being groomed, and has been set up to become a very important character as a Loa(a spirit if you will). Vol'jin is becoming a legend in the making, and a great important ancestor to Trolls, and a hero figure to the Horde. Learn about the Warcraft lore first, and then watch the Cinematic again and you will see what I mean. When I think of Vol'jin... I think of Durotan, Lothar, Uther, Trollbane, Fordring, Grom Hellscream, etc... etc.... What more could you ask for than to be immortalized? Maybe I just appreciate the Warcraft story as a whole more than others? I play Alliance and yet I seem to understand the Horde better than Horde players do.... If I played a Troll, I would be excited as hell about the future lore. Maybe I will, and I can look forward to having Vol'jin as a Loa looking out for me.... :)
do not forget that Vol'jin had a love affair in the MOP as I might have a little Vol'jin, you never know =)
Bring back Vol'jin, even if it means as a Zandalari troll, with his spirit inhabiting it!
Shadow hunter as new class, please!
