Sylvanas Will Not Be Garrosh 2.0

Recommended Posts

38771-warbringers-sylvanas-the-burning-o

Good news, everyone! Senior Game Producer Michael Bybee confirmed at Gamescom that Sylvanas won't be following in the footsteps of Garrosh in Battle for Azeroth.

Click here to read the full PCGamesN article!

Blizzard finally addressed concerns voiced by Horde players that came into existence after the reveal of the Sylvanas animated short. If you're late to the game and haven't played War of Thorns, Sylvanas burned down Teldrassil and players were not particularly happy about that. Some even started harassing Christie Golden who didn't even write Warbringers.

According to PCGamesN, Bybee said that it's all part of the story thread that they've had planned out for a long time. Possibly the most soothing fact is that the Horde Warchief won't receive the Garrosh treatment and there are definitely other plans in store for both factions.

She didn't write "Warbringers" but she wrote "Before the Storm".  If you've read that book then the events of "Warbringers" are really no surprise because Sylvanas is established, without question, as a true villain.  The burning of the World Tree is all the masks and ambiguity pealed back and a revelation of how corrupt and black her soul is, for not just peace on Azeroth, but for the survival of Azeroth herself.  Vol'Jin really screwed up leaving the big chair for her. 

But the biggest revelation is not just what an irredeemable enemy to The Alliance she is, truly, as bad as any enemy has ever been, but she's poison to The Forsaken as well.

The question is, will she become Kerrigan 2.0 instead, a neutral hero that both factions have to support in fight against Void Lords. This would have been even worse than her ending like another Garrosh.

Not really good news if you ask me. So far I find her worse and far more evil than Garrosh so if she gets a better ending than him, I would find it kind of unfair and unjust.

Then again, perhaps this is what they mean. She gets a worse ending, far more humiliating for the horde than the one Garrosh got. Yay...

 

Edit: Another thing. What do you mean "she won't be following in the footsteps of Garrosh"? She already burnt the tree with innocent women and children inside. She already is worse than him.

Unless... Perhaps she is actually dead/lost already (maybe her suicide worked after all) and our current warchief is just an imposter. Would still make the horde look like stupid, spineless and evil lackeys to whomever gives them whatever order, but at least that way they could restore Sylvanas legacy of being only 90% cartoonishly evil.

Anyway, I can't say that I am optimistic about the horde's future.

You mean Garrosh that dropped a nuke on a town full of civilians and his own troops, and then tried to commit genocide upon the rest of the horde that weren't orcs or a select bunch of goblins that made him his tools of war to attempt said genocide. Claiming that literally the only way there can be a horde is if it's a true, Orcish horde without others essentially polluting it?

She's definitely not been good or "morally grey" but I wouldn't say she's that far...

She would need to be touched by The Light or otherwise influenced by some greater external force or, something, for her to ever elevate back to "enemy of my enemy" territory.  

What is going to be interesting is the re-introduction of Calia Menethil into the game storyline from the book.  When/if she usurps Sylvanas as protector of The Forsaken, becoming their "Light Lady" to her "Dark Lady", she will have nothing.  It would be rather fitting for her to end up in a Warden prison like Illidan.

Yeah, she is that bad and she's done the same.  She slaughtered The Desolate Council in cold blood as a stepping stone to war, as a means to spin the event with the rest of The Forsaken, to blame it on Humans, to stamp out the hope they had of ever being accepted by their living relatives or ever being accepted as anything but a notch above The Scourge.  Sylvanas loves The Forsaken the same as a common wife beater loves his battered wife. 

And the rest of The Horde are simply tools for her.  She doesn't even respect Baine, though she and The Forsaken owe their current existence to his generosity in bringing them into The Horde after being rejected by The Alliance as abominations.  Her only desire is more power and more Forsaken, but she'll gladly sacrifice any that dare question or challenge her, because her sights are set on Stormwind and turning all of Humanity into more undead to serve her.

Theramore was a military base and attacking those things during war isn't really something I would hold against Garrosh. Calling it a city full of civillians is a bit dishonest.

But regardless, I am not defending him. He was an asshole and he had to go. Just like Sylvanas. That's my point. 

We can argue all night who is actually more evil and many people did, but honestly, I don't want to.

Wut? No, Theramore Keep was THE military base of the Alliance on Kalimdor. Many of the Alliance quests in Dustwallow Marsh in Cataclysm centered around aiding the military.

Sylvanas set the wheel in motion for losing The Forsaken to Calia Menethil.   She's the hero that they need.  I'm not necessarily optimistic for the future of the Horde but I am for The Forsaken.  Baine and the rest of the "Original Horde" should think long and hard about whether the future of the Horde should include some of these other new races once The Forsaken go neutral.

Not so much third faction, but they could become neutral, like the Goblin used to be and certain groups within their race, as well as others.   

The Tauren brought them into the Horde but Varian has made overtures towards some reconciliation with the Humans after being forced to face his prejudices thanks to his surprising meeting with Alonsos Faol, creator of The Silver Hand and now undead servant of The Light.  Even Genn recognizes, finally, that The Forsaken are not simply creatures and that Sylvanas does not need to define them.  If The Light can accept them and create one of their kind (Calia Menethil) then old ideas and grudges need to be re-evaluated.

I guess for players they could split as well, they could be given a choice, like the Pandaren.  It's possible that some of the Forsaken will hold too much of a grudge against Calia's brother to follow her either to rebuild Lordaeron or settle someplace else.  The rest might be so lost and damaged that they stick with Sylvanas like so many stay in toxic, abusive relationships, because they don't think they deserve better or are more afraid of the Unknown.

I don't think so. I am actually thinking she will share the same fate as Illidan. Sacrificing herself to end the void in any she can. But I do not think she will be truly "neutral", the Alliance already showed their hatred for Sylvanas (Especially now since the burning of Teldrassil). And I really doubt that Anduin will forgive her for burning Teldrassil and "starting" a war. The alliance may end up finding their own means of tackling the void. Or siding with the Horde that's not apart of Sylvanas's horde.

The Alliance hatred for Sylvanas is well and truly justified.  She wants an undead genocide on the entirety of the Human population.  That's her end game.  That's not a difference of opinion.  That's someone that needs to be gone.  She's cancer to everyone, including the world that they live in.  Including her "own people".

She's nothing like Illidan.

Given that the Horde rebelled against Garrosh for far less, Blizz are gonna have to pull some serious deus ex machi-

Also I'd like to point out this is no longer the case. Chronicles retconned this and Thrall accepted the Forsaken just fine without the Tauren pleading their case.

The difference is that Garrosh tried to purge de Horde from the other races, every "evil" action that Sylvanas did was againts her ppl (Before the Storm) or against the Alliance.

Kind of crazy they have to actually come out and confirm this, but I totally understand it as a way to calm down some of the audience. I personally have disliked her "development" (or lack thereof) recently but the overall zone storylines on BfA have been decent to me.

But I hope your opening line doesn't justify the harassment of Christine Golden because that is still a lame, deplorable, childish set of actions by the people giving those of us who enjoy this hobby a bad name...

Was going to say, the horde didn't rebel against Garrosh because of Theramore or something, they rebelled because he literally claimed that they needed the true, Orcish horde (featuring a few goblins). and not even just purging the horde of other races, but also removing a large section of other orcs for things like disagreeing with him, or being warlocks

Just because she wrote it does not mean she is responsible for the plot.

In most cases when writers write for third parties like this (as in not their own IP), they are given the plot in varying levels of detail (Sylvanas did this this and this, this is her motivation, and characters X, Y and Z need to do... etc.). The writer is then just taking it froma list of pre-established bullet points, and fleshing it out.

Just because "Before the Storm" came out first, does not mean that it was developed first. I suspect this whole storyline has been in the pipleline for years, and she likely had very little creative freedom in the major plot points.

Do you think when Arthas' journey was being penned, they struggled with worry that Alliance fans would get upset that one of there's would turn to evil? Well that is where Blizzard has been ever since. I am a Horde player. I love that Blizzard has broken through their fear of offending players that their side may not be as pure as the other side. 

I mean this with all sincerity- this entire obsession with faction 'fairness' is not healthy and is paralyzing the lore. Marketing loves it, but creatives hate it. 

I for one love that my Tauren is living in a more fathomless world. 

Finally, I have said this for weeks- If you never type or say the word 'Azerite' in your disappointment over Sylvanas, you are missing a lot of her long term logic for her choices. But I do not blame you. I do blame that on Blizzard though. In game this crystallized blood of Azeroth, only comes across as "Azerite- Extra Strength Gunpowder®"

Alliance War Campaign makes her look even worse. She was fine by employing someone like a san'layn Blood Prince Dreven, who had begun making new san'layn (Alliance killed him and stopped that) and even drained out of blood some Horde troops.

      Day 2 of the race was quite a sight to behold, as the race unfolded in a very exciting manner, with the three top guilds all going in very different paths and Method and Limit biting at each other's tails throughout the day. In the end, Lady Ashvane and Orgozoa both fell and we ended up at 5/8, but let's start at the beginning.
      Wednesday is EU day in the World First race and the folks on this side of the Atlantic didn't disappoint, as Method and Pieces shot up to 3/8 very quickly and arrived at the first actually difficult boss in the raid: Lady Ashvane. After some exploring of the fight and knowledge of how Limit and Big Dumb Guild went at it, Method and Pieces made very different decisions, with Pieces opting to go for Mythic+ clears to get some more gear and Method thinking they could take Ashvane down with the gear they had, providing they got some good rng. Progress on the azerite Lady took quite a while and Limit came back from their sleep break, continuing their Heroic splits for a little while. So we now had the three top guilds in three completely different states, with two farming different sources and one going at the boss.

      (Timestamp 16:32:03 in case it's not working for you)
      As you can see from the above, Method were right to believe they could take it as-is, and got the World First and 4/8 just before 8PM CEST.
      However, it didn't take Limit that much longer, despite their splits, as they also took Ashvane down two hours later. While Pieces still hasn't taken the fourth boss down, it doesn't mean they're as behind as it seems, as they spent the day gearing up in M+, without having to "spend" their Heroic clears. Now that the strategy to downing Lady Ashvane is clear, they can just swoop in and execute it, while before they went to M+ they didn't seem to have a good grip on what strategy or comp to use for the encounter, which would mean they'd have lost a lot of time figuring it out. They finished the day at 27% on Lady Ashvane.

      And so, on we went to the fifth boss, jellyfish central, aka Orgozoa. Method and Limit progressed on the boss pretty similarly, with the EU guild ending their day at 50% and the US being at 47% at that time. As Limit are on a US raiding schedule (obviously), they had a lot more time to go at the boss after Method went to sleep and kept pushing pretty hard into the night. Meanwhile, the Asia guilds finally got access to the raid, and also very quickly moved to 3/8, with only Skyline actually deciding to progress on Lady Ashvane, while Alpha and Ji Tian Hong went to farm gear. Midwinter also secured a World third, as they were the first guild to down Lady Ashvane after a long gap between the first two kills on the little mermaid villain and the third.
      Limit kept on getting closer and closer to the kill, pretty consistently lowering the bosses health through many wipes, and landing on 12% for quite a number of hours and around 4% for a few more. In the end, though, after having switched to a 5-heal composition, around an hour ago they finally broke through and managed to get their third World First of the raid, downing Orgozoa and heading to 5/8! While they usually stop raiding around when they killed the boss, apparently the adrenaline is pushing them on so they are still raiding now and might be for a while more, as they think there's a chance that the Queen's Court might also fall soon, based on PTR testing and the pulls they've done so far. Considering they've already gotten the Court to 45%, they may just be right.

      (Timestamp 14:12:10 in case it's not working for you)
      And so the day ended up being very hectic, as Method fought back immediately after they got to enter the raid, but Limit returned to the top spot once more at the very end of their day 2. Two more bosses died in the grand scheme of things, leaving only the Queen's Court, Za'qul and the Queen herself alive in the Palace. Let's see how day 3 goes, whether Method can come back and get another World First, what exactly Pieces will be doing and if they can catch up in time, and just what will be happening with the Asia guilds and their two day disadvantage.
      We now have 1 guild with 5 bosses down, two with 4, a crazy 216 on 3/8, 83 on 2/8 and only 110 on 1/8!
      As always, you can follow the race on Method's site, their event stream or Red Bull's!

      In a new initiative, presumably to make LFR a more smooth experience, Blizzard have posted very quick overviews of the first three fights in the Eternal Palace. We have some great Abyssal Commander Sivara, Blackwater Behemoth and Radiance of Azshara illustrations to help get the basics from the dungeon journal down, and it looks pretty damn nice!

      In case you need more detailed guides, however, or need some beyond the first three bosses, check out our Eternal Palace guide as well.

      The very first day of the Mythic Eternal Palace progress race was an interesting one, as it stood in stark contrast to the last big raid we had, with only three bosses down! The last larger raid, Battle of Dazar'alor, had 9 bosses, but 8 of them were cleared on the very first day, and while Crucible of Storms was much better in that regard, with only two bosses it was hard to judge what it meant for future pre-endboss difficulty. Today we've seen some serious opposition in the form of Lady Ashvane, the Eternal Palace's fourth boss, who has definitely proven her worth to Queen Azshara and then some, as she's defended the Palace very well and left the bosses dead count on 3 for day 1.

      The US part of the race started on time and we had Limit and Big Dumb Guild go for it from the very beginning, with Limit taking the first and second kills of the raid - downing Abyssal Commander Sivara and Radiance of Azshara first. But it was actually BDG that got to that 3/8 first, as they used a different route and went from Sivara to Blackwater Behemoth, whom they killed World First, and then cleared Radiance of Azshara some 10 minutes before Limit downed Behemoth.

      It seems 10 minutes was the standard gap between kills, as both guilds were only alone on 3/8 for  another 10 when Midwinter joined them, with Vision and Blood Legion arriving at the same place 10 minutes after that. Intern Made This Boss and Nerd Crew were the next two to join the top group, but the 3/8 cluster stopped growing for a couple of hours after that.

      Lady Ashvane proved to be quite the wall as the top guilds eventually went for Heroic splits for more gear, but still failed to down her before they finished up for the day, making her join the Restless Cabal as the hardest non endboss encounter in BfA so far. She still hasn't died so it seems likely she'll take that throne away from Cabal soon, but we've yet to see what the EU guilds throw at her. We know Limit got Ashvane to 27% with a 20% shield as well.
      Interestingly, at the end of the day we had the most guilds with three bosses down at 46, with 24 on two and 34 ith one. It's now time for the EU servers to come up and for Pieces and Method to have their clash, with the possibility of some new EU contender jumping to the top instead.
      You can follow the Eternal Palace race in many places this time around, from Method's site progress coverage, to the two live stream events hosted by Red Bull and Method as well.
