World of Warcraft News: Legion Stories that Are Dying

World of Warcraft News: Legion Stories that Are Dying

Posted time: Apr 05,2017

Before the launch of the World of Warcraft: Legion, it seems like that the charm of this expansion can almost reach all aspects of the game and all the major players. But during the months between the Legion’s launch and the release of v7.2 (Tomb of Sargeras), a lot of promising stories or “hinted-at” lore have vanished. Let's take a look at the Legion's writers letting them fall into a dead end.


Jaina Proudmoore

Jaina played a prominent role in the early days of the Legion. After all, it was she, who created the icy bridges that Alliance players used to try to track down Tirion Fordring. She played an important role in this battle, despite she disappeared when all things went so badly not long after defeating Krosus (the big eredar wading in a pool of fel who later comes back as a boss in Nighthold) is inexplicable. Since Varian Wynn died, we only saw her once, when she stomped out of Stormwind refusing to work with the Horde. Developers have already mentioned that Jaina's story is not a story about the Legion, but that her story will unfold at a later point.

Wrathion - Deathwing’s Son

During the Legion beta, Wrathion was a prominent part of the Highmountain story. However, at some point between the beta testing and the Legion distribution, his character was replaced with a heretofore unheard of Black dragon named Ebyssian also known as Spiritwalker Ebonhorn. Although the reason for change was sound, the presence of Wrathion was due to his outstanding role in Mists of Pandaria and cameo appearance in Admiral Taylor’s garrison in Warlords of Draenor (which happened all thanks to him, anyway).

Faction Leaders / Dragon Flights

Speaking to Highmountain, where Baine Bloodhoof who also appeared there during beta? This should be justified and he will be an important part of Highmountain Tauren storyline but...no. He is not. Why is it unclear. For the other faction leaders, most have been AFK since the defeat at Broken Shore with notable exceptions for Tyrande Whisperwind, Malfurion Stormrage and Velen. In 7.2, we also got the first sign that Anduo Weilun Wang will soon appear. Genn Greymane is also very simple to appear. This only left Gelbin Mekkatorque as the only league leader, at least at a moment after Broken Shore, at least a simple appearance.

As for the Horde, we have seen only Thrall and Saurfang in very, very brief appearance since Broken Shore. Sylvanas was seen quite a bit in the early stages of the Legion, and then he disappeared, except in the Hordies shouting out of the world's PvP's Warden Towers. For the chiefs of the Warchief of the entire Horde, this is an inexplicable omission. During Suramar campaign, the regent of the Blood Elves, Lor’themar Theron doesn’t appear there personally for the big event instead sending over Lady Liadrin and Magister Rommath. 

Sylvanas vs Genn - Horde vs Alliance… or not?

One big selling point of Legion is the good old Red vs Blue. Since Sylvanas became the Warchief of the Horde, and the tension between the factions at its highest after the Broken Shore, it could lead to a storyline in all the locations of the expansion.

On the contrary, the fighting of whole faction is taking place in the first half of Stormheim questing and half a dozen of Warden Towers scattered around Broken Isles will not be mentioned again. As a Hordie, while following the Emirate, completed the Stormheim, and with the Union's incredible stimulus, only to reach Val'sharah, directed by Tyrande Whisperwind. Let alone taking out a Warden Tower to return to multi-factional Class Order Hall. It is possible that Stormheim storyline would have received continuation due to Sylvanas’ deal with Helya and the lantern broken by Genn, but as Helya herself is taken out of equation in 7.1.5 raid Trial of Valor, it seems unlikely it will be followed up on. Here’s hoping that Sylvanas at the very least will show up for Windrunner sisters reunion when Alleria and Turalyon finally show up.

Old Gods

Old Gods are not the opportunity to miss, but rather very strong hint at the direction of a future expansion. There is enough impetus in the direction of N'Zoth and his brother around the expansion. Listening to the whispers of Xal’atath for Shadow Priests, the whole of Emerald Nightmare (with the spirit of Ysera walking into a cave with ominous flower in the end) as well as presence of the Naga lead by Azshara to name a few.
