It would be nice if the author acknowledged the correct stance on "prophecies" instead of misguiding readers by suggesting they all are all true, and all must have meaning. Blizzard wrote themselves a big ol' loophole so they're free to ignore prophecies, but for some reason they're still treated like gospel.The Void (along with Old Gods) can see every possible future, but has no idea which one will come to pass. The Light only sees one possible future (in which they are usually victorious over the Void) and believe it will come to pass. "Light" and "void" prophecies are unreliable, and if they do come true, it's coincidence. This was very clearly outlined in A Thousand Years of War, which apparently nobody read:
I still disagree with Khadgar being the "Lord of Ravens" who turns the key. Why would the "five torches" suddenly be a "key"? Blizzard paid attention to detail and reused the specific phrases mentioned in the prophecies on various occasions. So why should the "five torches" suddenly be a "turning key"?And most of all, it's "Lord of RavenS". Why would anyone think Khadgar is a Lord of Ravens? Because he can turn into one? Please. "Look, I'm a Guardian Druid. I'm the Lord of Bears!" ლ(ㆆ _ ㆆ)If he was, why didn't they call it "Ravenlord" in the prophecy? Or "Lord of the Raven"?Imho, there are exactly two characters where "Lord of Ravens" would make sense:1. Kur'talos Ravencrest, literally a Lord. But he's already dead, so it must be2. OdynWhy? Well, he literally commands two ravens. He was trapped a long time and couldn't act. We've freed him and he told us that he wouldgo to Ulduar to talk to the other Titan keepers.So where could a "Lord of the Ravens" possibly "turn a key"? Maybe in the prison of an Old God, where he told us he would go?Just you wait. The Ulduar keepers showing up is just a question of time. They wouldn't just stand there and watch N'Zoth being freed - unless someone would keep them buisy in Ulduar.
One of Il’gynoth’s whispers was “Five keys to open our way. Five torches light our path.”During the end of the new Xal'atath questline, something caught my attention. Xal’atath refers to us as something in particular.“I have brought the Opener… (another term for a key) The Bringer of Truths… The Torch that Lights the Way!”What else do players tend to do? Congregate in groups of 5. (Dungeons).---I think people have been too focused on the 5 Pillars of Creations as the "5 Keys" - I don't think they're the 5 Keys. I think the players are. I think this suggests that the players have been the (unintentional) threat to Azeroth all along, and will unwittingly be the ones that bring the Void Lords to Azeroth? Will 8.3 bring a dungeon that when we finish it, will summon a Void Lord (or unleash N’zoth) that ends the raid tier, and leads into the next expansion?
Wow, that's a great theory that would also include the game mechanics :ONice one! :)
Wont removing the Tidestone reopen the portal Legion used to come into Azeroth in Legion? Magni states that the reason we have to use the artifacts to remove the corruption from Sargeras's sword is because Pillars of Creation are keeping the portal closed(guess Blizz will just retconn that)
And Azhara would have to Invade Dalaran in order to get the Tidestone, or have some minion go and grab it.
I just wanna know which one of you numpties left the door unlocked after Legion and left the Pillars of Creation unattended. Like ... what's even the thought process there? "Hey guys so here are these massively powerful artifacts that are intertwined with the existence of the planet we're all walking around on, how about we leave them here unattended in this giant spooky tomb on an island surrounded by naga - who have always been known as awesome, reasonable and totally not murderous fish-people. They'll be fiiiiine. Literally no one else on Azeroth wanted any of these things, it's not like we spent the majority of the war ripping them out of the hands of drogbar or vrykul or ... oh."Honestly for a move that braindead we deserve what we're gonna get.
I was wondering what that flower thing was. I just soloed Emerald Nightmare a couple days ago.
Not to be nit-picky, but the world tree in Grizzly Hills was Andrassil, not Andassil. drassil, with an "r". WoW's version of the Old Norse "drasill", taken from the famous Yggdrasil (the world tree that connected the universe), but which really just means "Odin's Horse" (drasill means "horse"), which refers to the "horse of the hanged": the gallows tree.With an "r".:D
It is sad that we have to be incompetent pawns for writers to make these 'foreshadowings' come true. Aside from how Shadows supposedly should lie but writers make it soo ''Oh but it happened and it is because of you !''... it just sad.
i hope we see ysera in the future patches.
You mind giving examples of the retcons you speak of? The fact that there was FORESHADOWING an expansion ago about events that would happen 3 years later is actually good storytelling. Yeah, I'm sure retcons have happened over the years, but not all retcons are necessarily bad.>Blizzard has messed up spectacularlyI dunno if I'd say THAT lol. As I've said, foreshadowing is damn good storytelling which is why I give Blizz props for the move they did this patch.
