I agree he should have died, definitely. But I’m being realistic, they’re not going to kill him off. He’s a self insert and “important” to the story somehow. He’ll die whenever Sylvanas dies. If at all.
-The Dalaran Purge of the Sunreavers.
-The eco-terrorist attack on goblin miners in Silithus.
-The use of fire elementals to slaughter hundreds of goblins at a time at a peaceful mining camp in Zandalar.
-The attempted extermination of the orcs before they migrated to Kalimdor
-Garithos. Just… SERIOUSLY, this guy.
Yeah. Night elves are clearly the only ones that have it so bad.
And this is just off the top of my head, I know there’s more.
I agree with the post, but let’s be honest, the writers will write anyone as a poorly written dope to advance a plot they just have to advance. For instance, saurfang just going along with the war because “peace won’t last forever”, anduin and genn sieging lorderon without a counter to the blight, etc. It would end up being a good sized list if we listed all the times the writers dumbed down a character because if they were as smart as usual they wouldn’t take certain actions.
Garithos nearly killing off the last refugees of the high/blood elves when their city is still overrun with the scourge isn’t kicking a group of elves while they’re down when their capital and most of their homelands has been effectively burnt to the ground isn’t the same as kicking a group of elves while they’re down because an ex-scourge overran and burnt their homeland to the ground?
Honestly these seem like basically the same thing, and ironically, one of these moved said group of elves from the Alliance back to neutrality, then eventually to the Horde.
Yes most of the rest aren’t quite genocide levels, but to say no race doesn’t get repeatedly kicked around is pretty much putting on the blinders.
It’s almost like a game company is enforcing a war that makes no sense at times…
How much longer should NE wait? The Horde have been destroying NE zones since Cata/MoP. Any territories supposedly reclaimed in the books is never shown in game and it is not explained. If the zones can be so easily changed to suit a Horde narrative, they can just as easily be changed to show NE reclaimed the land.
Yes, it NEVER made sense that Genn would show up with Anduin and all the Alliance forces to the literal epicenter of the blight and not have at least gas masks…like they would have just forgotten what happened to Gilneas.
They are able to easily hide oversights like this with flashy flying ships and Jaina saving they day. But the way Night Elves are being treated highlights just how bad / biased the writing is.
