What were your thoughts of the final stage in the Isle of Thunder? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

Even with this cease-fire, I doubt there is any chance of Dalaran being Neutral again.
I've gotta go do it on my rogue. Hmhrph.
What?!? N. and S. Korea signed a cease-fire!?!

I find it very, very hard to believe that Dalaran won't be involved in the next Burning Legion expansion and, therefore, won't be neutral again. It's just too iconic and persistent of a location in the Warcraft universe for it NOT to be able to be visited by both factions. Hell, they even rebuilt the damn thing after WCIII for that purpose.

I liked it.

I liked how the Sunreaver shifted uncomfortably. I liked how Jaina gasped at the insinulation. I liked how the Blood Elves lowered their weapons first. I like the wisdom of Taran Zhu.

It now seems more fitting that the Isle of Thunder concentrated on the Sunreavers and Kirin Tor instead of the Horde and Alliance.

I think it more realistically sets up whats to come in 5.3 and 5.4 using the 'sub' factions rather then the Horde and Alliance as a whole. Rebellion usually starts off on the fringe. It makes more sense this way. For both sides.

That's just my take on it though.

Still...

I liked it.
Felt pretty fuzzy at the end. It also wasn't annoying beyond comprehension like some of the others.

Also Shan Bu is skinnable.

That is hilarious.

The Sunreavers will make their own damn floating city. With blackjack and hookers!

I actually would like to see them not get let back in quite yet, and in their frustration make their own floating isle city. They probably could. But what isle to lift.

Also Shan Bu is skinnable.


So uh... Did you take his face and pretend to be a mogu? Wasted opportunity if you didn't.
It was like an underwhelming Shattered Sun grind.

My character was not a skinner, unfortunately.

I never picked up professions when it came to RAF.

All the goblins need to get their act together and do this already. I'd like something resembling Cloud City from the Star Wars meets Las Vegas.

. . . wow, that's the only Star Wars movie I like anymore . . . childhood shattered.

For Christ's sake, Av, you even have the proper male Draenei body for it.

Opportunity.

Wasted.


Unless this was on an alt. Then I look a bit silly.
Red Shirt Guy over on SoL mentioned this:

"Malfurion [The realm] just unlocked the final stage, there's an interesting but minor thing. After completing the Fall of Shan Bu, the quest text for Jaina says she "sees the Sunreavers in a new light" and seemingly no longer wants to fight them. (She had been under the assumption they were working for Garrosh, now she realizes they're against him too)."
"Sunreavers aren't even loyal to their own faction leader. Guess that means they're okay!"

Ugh.

That makes me sick.
It was interesting, but I kept feeling like there was something missing.

I am sad I am not a skinner now. :( I would have loved to have skinned Shan Bu.
Welp, Alliance-Dalaran was good while it lasted.

Dalaran is still loyal to the Alliance. Just because she can slightly tolerate the Sunreavers now doesn't mean she is making her city neutral again.

She has the Silver Covenant on a leash, who seem to be the only ones with half a brain in the Isle, so it's effectively neutral if all it takes is Lor'themar saying "Nah, these guys are cool." If she's only interested in fighting Garrosh, then once he's not Warchief anymore she won't have an interest in fighting the Horde. Which is disappointing, I liked Fall of Theramore Jaina.
I loved Fall of Theramore Jaina.

But instead of keeping her that way, which I love - we need more dark female characters - nope, gotta be lawful stupid. Puckerin' up to the same people who blew up her nation-state.

Does anyone else get the feeling that if this were real life, half of the Alliance command would be in asylums for Stockholm Syndrome and half of Horde command would be on Death Row for crimes against humanity?
