blizzard should hire me to be remote support, i am the best
I was reminded yesterday that I once wrote fiction shipping shadow priest Shadowy Apparitions with mage Mirror Images.
The Former Spellbreaker
I have an alt warrior who is actually an alt of Kirian. Eventually, in the next few months, he will get a better prosthetic and be able to wear plate again, and thus you’ll be seeing him around like this from time to time.
As far as RP goes, I’ll be keeping him as a caster when he’s around as a mage, and mostly as a Spellbreaker when he’s around as a warrior. Can wave my hands at it and say that using the abilities of the latter dampens his magical abilities, or something. This is definitely an “eventually” sort of thing, but Kirian was a Spellbreaker before the Third War (he lost his leg guarding the city) and I’d like to be able to touch back on that, as that was his dream when he was younger.
This mog is Horde warrior Tier 9 for the chest, legs, and boots, Northrend green BoE plate for the gloves and waist. Cloak is the BoE Wispcloak that I made a couple months back and never used/gifted. Shield is Blockade’s Lost Shield and the sword is a Soul Blade. The shoulders I am most happy with, they are Ramshorn-Inlaid Spaulders and super easy to obtain. I really wanted this set to look, aside from the shield, a bit more lightweight.
I am forever lamenting the lack of understated/obtainable plate robes for warriors. The only two that come to mind are purple Judgement and pally off-set T12 from Alysrazor, which is a little bright for Kirian.
Don’t forget the ICC pally tier! It’s sort of muted colors like the set you’ve chosen here, the non-tier pieces might fit well! http://www.wowhead.com/item=50775
A passive-aggressive jerkwad from Twitter posted mine and Tzufit’s post up at Scrolls of Lore in order to mock us, but someone on there actually got what we were saying:
I’m happy at least…
Yeah, I’m not very happy with how they’ve treated Tyrande. Bit happier with Jaina since she’s still allowed to do thing on her own sometimes.
And its not that I dislike Malfurion, he’s one of my favourite characters (has been since Warcraft 3), but Tyrande needs to not be attached to him all the time.
(*muffled swears at tumblr for eating my text*)
As I was trying to say, I liked them both better earlier on. I haven’t played WCIII myself, but IT’s shown me pretty much all the dialogue, and it seemed to me that while they clashed sometimes - as you’d expect from two strong-willed people who are both used to being in charge - they respected each other.
These days Malfurion just seems so patronizing, and Tyrande is either insecure and pining or reckless and stupid. Ugh.
Did someone call for Tyrande’s dialogue?!
Furion Stormrage: I’ve never seen the creatures so… aggressive before.
Tyrande Whisperwind: Then I will put an end to their curse! Andu-falah-dor!
Furion Stormrage: You’ve changed, Tyrande. There is little mercy left in you.
Tyrande Whisperwind: Long ago, I swore to protect this land, Furion. I never had the luxury of sleeping through times of great peril.
Furion Stormrage: If your endless vigil has hardened you, my love, it must be part of your goddess’ plan.
Furion Stormrage: Be that as it may, he is far too… dangerous. I forbid it.
Tyrande Whisperwind: Only the goddess may forbid me anything. I will free Illidan whether you like it or not.
Tyrande Whisperwind: I will go. I will lead the Sentinels there myself.
Malfurion Stormrage: No, my love. The druids and I can handle—
Tyrande Whisperwind: I am the one who set him free. The responsibility is mine.
Illidan Stormrage: Tyrande! What are you doing here? This battle does not concern you.
Tyrande Whisperwind: I was wrong to set you free, Illidan. I can see that now. You’ve become a monster.
Illidan Stormrage: Monster? Is that what you think of me? I have always… cared for you, Tyrande. I sought only to prove my worthiness, my power!
Tyrande Whisperwind: Raw power is no substitute for true strength, Illidan. That is why I chose your brother over you.
Maiev Shadowsong: We are wasting time here, Tyrande. We should be out looking for Illidan!
Tyrande Whisperwind: [The blood elves] need our help, Maiev. Their brethren aided us against the Legion. We will honor that debt now.
Tyrande Whisperwind: Kael, get your caravan moving across the river! I will stay behind and hold the bridge!
Maiev Shadowsong: That’s very noble of you, Priestess, but you’re no match for a force that vast!
Tyrande Whisperwind: The goddess is my shield, warden. Elune will grant me the strength.
Tyrande Whisperwind: Come forth, you mindless wretches, and taste the wrath of the Sentinels! Elune’s light shall never falter!
Tyrande Whisperwind: Goddess, if this is to be the end, let us die with your name on our lips!
etc. I love Warcraft III/TFT. I just wish Blizzard did too.
“Furion Stormrage: If your endless vigil has hardened you, my love, it must be part of your goddess’ plan.”
"Your goddess"? Elune is worshipped by the entirety of the night elf culture, especially before Cenarius brought druidism to them. And Elune is also Cenarius’ mother and all, so I dont understand why Furion is divorcing himself from Elune here. Do nelf druids reject Elune?
I read that simply as more Malfurion acknowledging Tyrande’s close relationship with Elune, given her status as a priestess? Like a compliment.
Or, maybe that while Malfurion may still revere and respect Elune, if Cenarius tells him to do X and Elune tells him to do Y, he’d probably listen to Cenarious since that’s his god figure. And vice versa for Tyrande. Meaning his phrase would be more “That’s not what my god would say to do, but if that’s what yours has tasked you with, I recognize and respect Elune’s decision.”
Ah, for the good old WCIII dialogue days.
