wow March Badness: Which Warcraft Figure is Most Evil?

1 post in this topic

Blizzard are currently running a competition to find out which Warcraft villains are the worst of the worst! Check out who is in the running and get your votes in!

 

The contest will be taking place through Twitter and Facebook, with polls being put out for players to vote who is the worst in each poll. The contenders are as follows:

  • The Lich King - After committing atrocities such as slaughtering his own father and destroying his homeland, Arthas Menethil went on to become the leader of the scourge. Despite Arthas being killed eventually, the Lich King lives on, keeping control of the scourge across Azeroth.
  • Illidan Stormrage - His thirst for power led him to betray his people during the War of the Ancients in an attempt to serve a higher purpose. His unending lust for Legion blood meant he embraced the power that Sargeras bestowed upon him, using it to eventually combat the Legion. Illidan fell into dark times after the Third War, however, and ended up transforming into a demon through the magic of the Skull of Gul'dan.
  • Kil'jaeden - As one of the three brothers approached by Sargeras to act as leaders of the Burning Legion, Kil'jaeden has a wealth of power at his disposal. Unlike his brother Archimonde, Kil'jaeden was never intended as a front-line general. This hateful being would prepare worlds to be conquered, his magical prowess unrivaled by his brother. He would scout worlds and races to be recruited into the Legion, twisting their minds to evil.
  • Deathwing - Formerly the aspect of earth, Deathwing was driven to madness by the Old Gods. He committed one of the most horrible atrocities in Warcraft history after convincing the other aspects to place their power into the artifact he had created, the Demon Soul. After countless support from Malygos, the blue dragon had to watch as Deathwing slaughtered nearly every blue dragon in existence, as well as his consorts. Deathwing has forever fiddled in the matters of humans, trying to bring about his ultimate goal, ending life on Azeroth and reforging the world in his image.
  • C'thun - After being imprisoned in Ahn'Qiraj, this old god freed itself and began corrupting the life around it. This Old God is the embodiment of evil, with the goal of destroying Azeroth and everything the titans came to create. Known for his deathly whispers, this god-like figure seeks to kill everyone that opposes it in some pretty gruesome ways: "Your heart will explode."
  • Ragnaros - The Firelord of the elemental planes and slayer of the son of Al'Akir, he sought to burn down the world tree Nordrassil, which was then defended by Malfurion and Cenarius. He has a problem with waking up early, so make sure you only summon him after he's had a proper nap! Sorry Executus!
  • Algalon the Observer - After the death of Loken, the titan watcher, Algalon was summoned to investigate what had happened. He was prepared to completely re-originate Azeroth, thereby "restarting" the planet and killing all life. We manage to stop him doing so, but it might still be on the cards!
  • Murlocs - Beings of true evil, these small fish-like creatures know nothing but war. They prey on unsuspecting low-levels, hoping to beat them out of their villages. While you can reason with a kobold by bringing them a candle, these murlocs will try to bite your arm off if you attempt any reasoning! Whatever you do, don't wander too far into the water, or you'll find yourself swarmed by these horrible little creatures!

So, now that we know who's competing, make sure you follow the @Warcraft Twitter to get your votes in on who is the most evil!

      Na'zak graces us with extra loot this week and also has the recipe for Rank 3 Potion of Prolonged Power.
       
      It seems we get double World Bosses this week as Na'zak the Fiend has arrived in Suramar (on both US and EU servers). Blue posts confirm this is not a bug, but it also doesn't seem exactly intended (at least originally), as there was a bug where you could loot him multiple times that's already been fixed. Whether this is a new schedule of World Boss spawns that will give us more than one per week (or a chance at more than one) hasn't been announced so it might just have been one of those things that slipped through the cracks.
      In any case, he drops Rank 3 of Recipe: Potion of Prolonged Power as well as:
      Avalanche Resistant Legplates Dessicated Leather Pants Leystone Nugget Loop of Polished Pebbles Mana-Dowsing Ring Na'zak's Dusty Pantaloons Venomscarred Chain Leggings Let's hope this wasn't just a random mistake that was played off as intended and two bosses a week becomes the norm!

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      A reddit user shared some highlights of his exploration of Vanilla, TBC and WotLK using a variety of tricks.
       
      A lot of us who've played Vanilla at some point went and visited Hyal by suiciding through the inactive raid portal, but there were other ways to creatively explore the world around as well. Redditor jarrodnb recently remembered his time in TBC/early WotLK and how he would use the jump bug (where you wouldn't fall off a slope, regardless of how steep it was, if you timed it just right), among other things, to take a look at some of the less often seen vistas and quite a few secrets hidden away behind terrain (remember, at the time you could only fly in Outland, so a lot of these vantage points may seem normal to you, but were very special back then).
      There's a whole album of his exploits (both in the "game breaking" and  the "interesting things he did" sense) and you should really give it a look, as it has interesting comments about the zones and how he got there and plays out like one big story. Here are some highlights:

      "I had always wondered where Nightbane was before he flew onto the balcony"

      "Next up, I had heard about the early "outland" hidden away in VC."

      "Looks like an early version of Howling Fjord is tucked away inside UK. I can't believe how many secrets are hidden away inside the instanced versions of dungeons"

      "I eventually worked up the courage to actually explore GM island, so I busted out my old "bridge" file. One of my "mates" said in "type /who gm island" in trade chat, I was spammed with randoms asking how I got there. I quickly logged off in terror."
       
      Big thanks to jarrodnb for sharing (part of) his exploration journey and reminding us of our own exploration attempts (even if it was just swimming around the edges of the continents)!

      Patch 7.1.5 brings new Artifact Knowledge catch-up options for both mains and alts.
      We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.
      The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.
      Main Characters
      A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Bloods of Sargeras.

      Alts
      Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.
      Artifact Research Compendium: Volume I Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-III Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).
