Spoilers I guess? Although this is just part of the new war campaign. And people just may have missed this option entirely. But this bothered me a lot. And I felt like talking about it.
So when you’re doing the Darkshore campaign which is the prelude for the battle for darkshore hub Sylvanas’s boy Nathanos orders us to find the body of Delaryn Summermoon. Sira Moonwarden comes out and you have to kill her because she wants revenge. You get her down to one health and Nathanos comes along and yells out “what u doin bruh hurry up and finish the job.”
What you can do instead is tell Nathanos “Nah you do it.” He tells you. “You’re too weak to do it.” and he shoots her instead.
What I don’t get is this. From an honorable standpoint. Is this supposed to be some gotcha moment? Wow! Nathanos is such a jerk! He shot down a defenseless night elf! But… only she wasn’t defenseless. She attacked your character first. It’s actually completely within the lines of Orcish honor to kill her yourself. Are you supposed to consider what’s going to happen to her and Delaryn next? Or are you supposed to just forget that fact? Many people may have just overlooked this because I actually had to think for a moment before trying to talk to Nathanos because I didn’t think such a shallow option existed. This just seems like a problem with Blizzard trying to push the lines of what is and isn’t part of Sylvanas’s Horde.
What could they have done differently though? Should they have done something differently?
