I mean people are missing the bigger picture calling her loyalist idiots and abandoned. By admonishing the entire horde and going off on her own she opened forgiveness for all her people if they chose it and some took advantage of that to await her future plans which whether they know of it not. Know there is more.
Please, I just want to be an Undead Paladin already!Turn me Sylvanas!
Dark Lady always!
These new classic fanbois are missing out a point: Classic Forsaken is not post WOTLK forsaken. We've seen plenty of the new forsaken raised during cataclysm. They never had vengeance over the Lichking. They raised, served the Banshee queen and served the horde. But classic forsaken had simple reason to live: Vengeance. So there's literally no reason to distrust these new forsaken who saw Garrosh's stronger horde is protecting them from the alliance or whoever dont wants to see a walking corpse. Not to mention during entire BFA, Sylvanas claimed her all actions are to favor the horde. These forsaken saw their queen serving the horde, they waged this (false) war for the horde. Not all of them see the horde as a tool like those classic era forsaken did. So dont bring out your argument with "ClAsSiC ClEaRlY sHoWeD fOrSaKeN dOnT cArE aBoUt ThE hOrDe". Put classic where it belongs, just because that old dead has been raised from the grave, doesnt mean its crappy lore fits in current time.
A bit offtopic, but has that Void Rune thing in the orgrimmar embassy been addressed yet? do we know what it represented or is it still up in the air?
So... what if they're lying? There can be any number of reasons, but let's use the obvious one and say they're afraid of both the Horde and the Lich Queen. This can occur "in reality", so whenever the Horde's "hero" walks around they make it look like they defected from the Lich Queen, and vice versa when her lapdog is off their leash.Would Blizz even try this? Probably not, we've seen how sadistic the Forsaken race can be and now we're seeing how seeing how masochistic they might be... but that's now an option. This is very reminiscent of the zealotry of the Scarlet Crusade, in their eyes "nobly" purging everyone they suspect of the plague, even if they were completely clean? Sylvanas might just do this as well, except replace plague with insubordination and clean with loyalty. Anyone who is not loyal to her is an enemy, and anyone who might not be loyal to her might be an enemy, and how does she treat her enemies?Would this make her a good girl?
I can see many Forsaken being loyal to Sylvanas. There's probably plenty who do NOT think of themselves as Horde and that it's still an alliance of convenience. Therefore Sylvanas never turned on THEM.
Not sure if a bug or because I kept the Gift of N'Zoth, but I do not get the whisper as a loyalist.
