...Oh how I hope you all don't end up making Elune a Naaru. That would ruin perhaps the one unique pantheon in the game! Night Elves have perhaps the only religion, aside from Tauren, that has actual gods and powerful figures that -aren't- giant, glowing wind chimes. You can think of something better than "OH SHE'S A NAARU LOL!" It would just be a huge dissapointment to drop the ball on Elune's lore like that.
What is the Argent Crusade's relationship with the Forsaken, in light of Sylvanas's recent actions?A: Although the members of the Argent Crusade still stand by the Forsaken heroes who joined them in the battle against the Scourge, Sylvanas's actions since the slaying of Arthas have deeply concerned the crusaders. They, along with certain members of the Ebon Blade, are now watching Sylvanas and the Forsaken very closely, as similarities between her and the Lich King are increasing in number by the day. maybe history will repeat itself and we'll see an new undead expansion or just ine a patch.....
Hmm... descended from Trolls?

Not hard to believe given the physical similarities between the Night elves and Trolls. Also, when environmental factors make for such distinct physical and cultural differences between individual tribes of Trolls (ex. Frostmane, Gurubashi, Amani, Witherbark, Drakkari...) it's not a stretch to theorize that exposure to the energies associated with the Well of Eternity could have mutated a race that was already prone to mutation.

Further, the mutation did not stop with Troll to Night elf. High elf, Naga, and Satyr are all derivatives of the Kaldorei, each exposed to different environments/energies. Additionally from High elf to Blood elf is yet another mutation.

In closing, the Trollish Peoples (and their derivative races) seem to be the most adaptive on Azeroth, found in all climate and terrain types.
some people think that night elves are just evolved trolls by the well :D it would rock if you guys had tusks...
Draenei were the worst addition to this game ever imo.

Q: Are blood elf death knights still afflicted by their racial addiction to magic?
A: No, though their new addiction, the one all Ebon Blade death knights possess, is arguably worse: the need to inflict pain. If death knights do not regularly inflict agony upon another creature, they begin to suffer wracking pains that could drive them into a mindless, blood-seeking hysteria—a far worse fate than that of those who suffer from arcane withdrawal.


I now have the lore I need to realistically RP my female BE DK as a dominatrix. Happy day!
Q: Why are humans who drink the blood of worgen unable to be raised as Forsaken?
A: Not only are the Val'kyr less powerful than the Lich King when it comes to raising the undead, but the worgen curse also makes raising them into undeath far more difficult than it is for normal humans. The worgen curse has roots in both the Emerald Dream (through the wolf Ancient, Goldrinn) and the holy power of the goddess Elune. In addition, those worgen who imbibe the waters of Tal'doren—through the ritual they undergo to maintain balance between the worgen curse and their humanity—have a further resistance to the corruption of undeath.


Alright so Worgen are now creatures of pure holy power now instead of the dark monsters that we were promised back during Blizzcon? Why the shift? So what about the Worgen curse makes it a curse now and what about the Worgen that makes them the shadowy dark creatures that they were once known as back during vanilla?
Jesus you people need to stop with the "Worgen curse isn't a curse" crap. I don't see any downsides to being undead at the moment. You can even channel and use the Light without fear of death, only pain to worry about.

You wanna know why the Worgen curse is bad? Because without the potion, you are mindless and will just kill and destroy anything, like the Worgen in Duskwood and Silverpine prior to the potion being invented. After the potion? You retain your mind, but are unable to control your form and likely struggle with primal urges. It's not until after the ritual that the Worgen regain control of themselves, but even then they struggle to control their Worgen side. Just read Genns story. He'd had the potion and the ritual, and he still struggled to stay human while the ship was sinking (even though he clearly had a better chance of saving his family by going Worgen).

Right now, I see the Worgen curse as something you can't show ingame any better than they already have. People are confusing lack of further Worgen lore with evidence that the Worgen curse has no downside. Right now, neither does the curse of undeath. Heck, undeath is often called a gift by Forsaken NPC's and players alike.
You can't taste, "feel", or (usually) feel happy as undead.

It has some more obvious downsides.
More of these please!

I've read most of the novels several times (I was stupid and sold most of them when I moved cross country, ack!), this was a great addition.

Warcraft has become my second favorite fantasy world, behind only Tolkien.
Who knows where Warcraft will be in 50 years of writing (about what Tolkien put into Middle Earth).....if it keeps up someday I could have a new number 1.
