Nope. Just nope.
I love where this is going. Poetic beauty in the fact that in the undead city of Lordaeron, a Menethil will rein over it once more. The relationship that was promised to rule over that kingdom with Arthas and Jaina, will be fulfilled with Calia and Derek. What a bittersweet tale the Kingdom of Lordaeron became.
Make Jaina`s elemental the warchief and lets create Hordliance and remove any violence from game. Just afk in a neutral capital and with every login, get a cosmetical item.
Wouldn't it feel good if this was just a ploy to get her in a trap, ending the curse of menethil "right" to the kingdom? She is introduced, in game, and the next patch, we drop the blade on the guillotine. Sadly it is just wishful thinking as Blizzard has move away from having the lore influence the story. Now days, it's will just be what the narrative demands...
Yeeeesss i love this, Love the idea of the Forsaken reconnecting with their Lordaeron heritage and identity but remaining in the horde, embracing both worlds. But we better not get the Undead Nightelf Sentinels as the Forsaken allied race -_- no more damn elves.
What will happen to the Sylvans’ most loyalists?
So, if now Forsaken have human feelings, humans don't like rot skin, humans MAY like robots, mechagnomes incoming....MECHAFORSAKENHUMANS ?
no offense to those above, but use reading comprehension. There is no mention of her asking Calia to lead the Forsaken. It states Night Elf Sentinels. She's going to help them lose their anger. Is the Alliance getting Undead Night Elves?
This really seems to play into the blurring of the separation between the Horde and the Alliance. The Forsaken may be "neither'.
It seems many here don't keep up with the books and other official lore outside of the game. This isn't surprising, and it does make sense. The forsaken have been divided and at the brink of civil war for a long time. Remember their inner turmoil is literally the reason the hostilities of BfA started. Yes, Azerite mining elevated escalation, but it was the disaster of Arathi that sparked the war. Only after that, did Sylvanas go ham on Teldrassil. Calia is reclaiming the lost and now empty throne. It simply had to happen. Especially because:1. We are going to Northrend again, make no mistake about it, Bolvar is playing a key role and the Jailor of the Damned, that he doesn't know or sense her or her daughter is just as interesting as to how the "Light" made her undead. 2. If the rumors of the new DK area are true, we might also see a new Plaguelands with a new Forsaken Capital City. Hopefully.
Yes. Like I commented below, many of the comments here are from people that really don't follow the lore it seems. This was sort of expected even before the expac began.
If you ignore Horde + Alliance, this makes the most amount of sense.If you read the books, you would see how the Lordaeron Forsaken reacted to Calia. She died trying to help them. Sylvanas murdered her for being a Menethil. The Light raised her.The war is over, no more 'us and them'. This is a good step.
