Remember, Zul: Cities of stone are impervious to fire. So the torch you threw was effectively doused.
Why are the cutscene so freaking bad this expansion? Even Wrathgate was better than these terrible cutscenes. What happened to the WoD, MoP, and Legion typed cutscenes where ti actually looked like a dang cinematic.
The animation is plain weird honestly
Ya know what I miss? I miss when the Alliance and Horde worked together in WC3 and even (in the expac) worked against someone trying to disrupt the peace between them. In vanilla it was kinda a cold war situation. Besides the battlegrounds, it was mostly just minor clashes between the factions. But Blizz just has to "keep the war in warcraft" so we get 13 years of1) Alliance and Horde fighting each other.2) New threat appears.3) Alliance and Horde fight new threat for a bit.4) Alliance and Horde immediately go back to fighting each other while ignoring threat.5) Alliance and Horde realize they have to work together to defeat new threat.6) With the threat dead, the Alliance and Horde decide to fight each other some more.7) Repeat steps 1-6 ad infinitum.
