Yeah I saw that... Kinda lost with MoP. No evil boss in the cinematic for once so its kinda out of the ordinary...

Please add a boss cinematic soon its kinda weird to go so long without one...

Last time there was no boss in the cinematic was the trailer for Vanilla.

Just sayin....

And here I was hoping that you'd finally let go of Knaak for his complete inability to write a story worth reading.

I am disappoint :(

Knaak? Hm. Looks interesting at least. He does great with writing expansive mythology, just hope the dialogue's not so grandiosely roleplayish like his previous works. <_<

Edit: Although it kinda sucks that we never see this type of thing in-game. The origins of Galakrond would've been miiiiighty interesting, especially seeing how big his corpse is in Northrend. o_o

Fingers crossed that Blizz and Knaak give the poor drakes a break instead of just heaping more misery on them.

You do realize MoP is a call back to Vanilla? Where there was no main villain and a whole new "world" to explore? Not having a bad guy in the cinematic was the whole point. In truth, the bad guys do appear - you. That orc and that human represent the player (to a degree), it is we who bring destruction to Pandaria. If you think not having a main villain was an error, you jsut missed the whole point of MoP.

Gotta say, I opened the page just to see who the author was.

Saw that name and didn't bother to read the rest. Not interested.

You do know that you're talking about the guy who invented the idea of Alexstrasza being nothing more than a sex slave just so that his personal fantasy stand in could chest bump her beau, right?

I didn't say it was an error what I'm implying is it would be nice to see a patch cinematic again is all. To say it is an error would be silly I'm just stating a matter of opinion. At some point in the expansion it would be nice to see a bad guy cinematic.

And there is a bad guy the new troll bosses e.ct...

He is doing what he does best. He created the concept of the Aspects.

Soon before 5.2 launches, we'll get a cinematic with the Thunder King appeting - we'll get our bad guy :P

Nozdormu is an Aspect. All the other dragons are, well, dragons. AS far as I know the only dragon "capital" that is abandoned is the Nexus in Coldarra, with the Caverns of Time still populated. There are, however, some mortals who take advantage of the dragons' diminished powers, seeking to change the timeways. Because of this, the bronze dragonflight have called some mortals and made the order of the "Timewalkers", though not shown in WoW yet, is the main focus of the WoW Tcg set.

Writing badly? We know. That's largely why I had hoped that Blizzard finally sent him packing.

So... is this Coming Soon(tm), like the Movie, or actually coming soon, as in sometime before the next millenium?

Gah I am so sick of reading/hearing about Kalecgos!

That said, I'll probably still read this. Anything that has a dragon in it is going to get my attention.

Hear, hear.

George Lucas created the concept of Star Wars, and we all know how THAT went.

Yeah, you know... the old "immortal beings losing their immortality" is getting old. First the night elves, now the dragon aspects...

It's OKAY for Azeroth to have something cooler than the players in it.

No for writing the Dragons which you skimmed over it seems and not address it.
