March Badness: Which Warcraft Figure is Most Evil?

Recommended Posts

16363-march-badness-which-warcraft-figur

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!

      The Warcraft universe Cosmology chart is one of the of the most important pieces of art we have, as it showcases the basic and primal forces of everything, so it's no surprise it's gotten quite a few makeovers recently. AJT_GameArt is back once again, improving his previous rendition once again, with some better images and characters associated with the various cosmic forces, including new Shadowlands figures!
      You can check out the reddit thread below for different versions of the piece, with and without the text, but it's

      Raid buff scrolls won't be returning and Blizzard also nerfed class buffs down to 5% in Shadowlands, so the removal of the Engineering battle rez was something entirely possible to give classes with combat-resurrection capabilities more prominence in raids.
      Fortunately, it is not going anywhere. Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator was added in the recent Shadowlands Beta Build, and the item can be used by Engineers for combat resurrection. It still comes with the chance to backfire and kill the caster instead of resurrecting an ally.

      Shadowlands comes with tons of new customization options, but some of them are locked behind specific skin tones, hairstyles, and more, which is an apparent downside of the feature.
      Reddit user Nihux noticed that if you want to use Faces 16-30 on Human Females, you will be locked to a specific set of skin tones, and the games won't allow you to use those faces with other skin tones, and vice versa.

      Faces 1-15 are locked to the first set of skin tones.

      Faces 16-30 are locked to the second set of skin tones.

      Faces 31-45 are locked to the third set of skin tones.
      The restriction also applies to the new hair colors that can only be used with the new hairstyles, as pointed out by  Reddit user Katur.
      The restriction is in place for other customization options such as scars tied to specific eye color options. When you pick a different scar, your eye color will change automatically, and vice versa.

      Reddit user RlySkiz says it's due to age of the WoW engine that cannot handle texture recoloring while it is running, so every hairstyle + hair color or face has their own model/texture that loads. There isn't a blank model that gets colored based on what option you pick.

      In the latest blog post, Blizzard outlined changes to the Recruit A Friend system coming in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Starting with the pre-expansion patch, characters created by a recruited friend will receive a 30-slot bag (Extra-Spacious Knapsack) upon completing Exile's Reach, the new player experience. Note that characters recruited before the Shadowlands pre-patch will not receive Extra-Spacious Knapsack.
      Experience Boosts that are currently active for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be removed before the launch of Shadowlands. Other rewards that come with the program remain unchanged.

      RECRUIT A FRIEND UPDATES
      With the upcoming release of Shadowlands and the leveling adjustments that come with it, we’re making a few changes to Recruit A Friend. Beginning with the release of the pre-expansion patch, characters who are created by a recruited friend* will receive a unique 30-slot bag—the Extra-Spacious Knapsack—upon completing their adventure in Exile’s Reach as a part of the new player experience. The additional experience boost that currently exists for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be phased out before the launch of Shadowlands. All other rewards available with the Recruit A Friend program will continue to be available for recruiters.
      *Players who are recruited prior to the release of the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch will not receive the new 30-slot bag, the Extra-Spacious Knapsack.

      We're looking at some terrifying texture/model bugs from the Shadowlands Beta, shared by Software Engineer Matt Yan on Twitter.
      The first bug makes the Worgen model look like a Trogg and second one is really difficult to describe, and I don't even want to know what happened to the poor Pandaren.
