Congratulations, Tyrande is bipolar.

General Discussion
Hi Blizzard,

How did we go from the young priestess who was Elune's chosen herself because she was pure and loved of all things:

Tyrande asked, “Do you want anything else? More food?”

“No.”

She paused, then said, “My name is Tyrande. I am a priestess of Elune, the Mother Moon.”

The figure in the cage seemed disinclined to continue the conversation, but when he saw that she was determined to wait him out, he finally responded, “Brox…Broxigar. Sworn servant to the Warchief Thrall, ruler of the orcs.”


From the cage came Brox’s gruff voice. “Shaman, may this lowly one, too, have your blessing?”

The guards started, but said nothing. If even a beast so politely requested a blessing by one of Elune’s chosen, how could they argue? They could not, but Illidan could. “You’ve done enough for that creature. You’re practically wavering! Come—”

But she would not deny the orc. Pulling free from Illidan’s grasp, Tyrande knelt again before Brox. She reached in without hesitation, touching the coarse, hairy hide and hard, deep-browed head.

“May Elune watch over you and yours…” the novice priestess whispered.

“May your ax arm be strong,” he returned


to WC3 reclusive woman:

"They are mongrels and nothing more! They are responsible for Cenarius' death! I will be damned before I stand with them."


To finally this in response to horde players:

Speak quickly, <race> I am not in the mood for Thalyssra's petitions.


Tyrande Whisperwind was selected to the be the high priestess of Elune because she reflects ELUNE. She is Elune's chosen because she was pure of heart. She saw past all of these things and loved all creatures.

I understand war changes people. But Tyrande Whisperwind was supposed to be unmoved. She was supposed to see the good in the world as Elune did. Now she's just bipolar.
Is this talking to her in Legion or is that from the beta? Because I'm pretty sure losing her home would make Tyrande pretty irritable no matter how close to Elune she was.
WoW's writers do not value character consistency at all.

Tyrande is one of the biggest victims of this, but she's far from the only one.
Warcraft 3 Tyrande helped Furbolgs reunite and got violent with anyone who threatened the wilds. She helped escort a blood elf caravan to safety and saved Kael'thas and Maiev by destroying a ton of undead with moonstrikes while putting herself in harm's way.

Now in legion she is rejecting her own kind and was forced to kill Ysera because the super stormrage brother Malfurion had to make a fool of himself and get a dragon killed.

I hate what they are doing to her character.

From Suramar if you go to the outside of the Grand Promenade.
The writing is not one of their strong suits.

To be honest I've given up on any and all good writing and just play for other reasons.

I actually had mad respect for her choosing to defend the temple instead of chasing Malfurion off into a Nightmare infested place.

She should have gotten more scenes with Nightborne/fallen. The voicemail in the NB recruitment bothers me so much. It's so lazy.
10,000 years can change a person, I guess? Or more likely different writers write different versions of characters to fit whatever story it is that they want to tell.

I get the feeling that Blizzard are trying to write out the Night Elves and other Alliance races and hand the Humans all their attention.
