Confirmed. Alliance Undead allied race. Does anyone remember the leak in which it said that they would be called the Redemeed and they'd be led by Calia?

I am a bit confused, Aren't forsaken with Sylvanas by their own choice, not by Lich-king'y mindbending? Or it's taking place with recent... "reinforcements"?

Oh please give me a break.  There as been plenty of deceit on the Horde side much of it caused by the Banshee queen.  The book Before the Storm released just prior to Battle for Azeroth completely showed this entire thread.  But the Banshee killed her own "Forsaken" at a meeting in the Arathi Highlands and made it look like the Alliance was the perp.  Like Baine said, There is a sickness within the Horde mostly the Banshee queen.  In the book she basically states her end goal is to make all of the people on Azeroth "Forsaken".  During Legion she was trying to steal the secret of immortality for her Forsaken but Greymane stopped her according to the cut scene but somehow she still has her fingers in the Valkyr.  She will do anything necessary to reach her goal and destroying the Horde from within is no problem to her.

best story in WoW and now they ruined it? I think you missed the parts where she was crazy before. I recommend you the really good podcasts of "lost Codex".  In one of the videos Jesse analyses how she is (spoiler alert) not out of character. Prior to the videos of him i wasnt to much into the story of the horde, and from my perspective it all makes sense now. But please go ahead and see it for yourself, and make your own opinion 🙂

Really?    The undead situation with the alliance just gets sillier by the expansion.

Marty Mcpriest was a proud soldier of the alliance and believer in the holy light.    Until the day he was killed in battle, then resurrected by the Lich King to be a mindless slave.   Then he was "freed" when Arthas was weakened, and broke free to follow Sylvannas as one of her Forsaken.   

Then, the luckless fellow was killed again by Arthas, and (again!) resurrected by Arthas as a puppet, this time as a powerful Death Knight.     He marched in an assault on the chapel in the plaguelands, and had his mind freed from bondage (again!), this time by Tirion.   

 

But poor Marty Mcpriest still couldn't go back to his human family, because while Tirion interceded with Varian Wrynn to allow the human deathknights back into the alliance, he didn't intercede for the human turned undead into undead(er?) Deathknights, because that would be crazy.  

Now Marty Mcrpriest, after watching the plight of a new fellow forsaken getting rejected by his wife in Kul Tiras, hears that there's a sister of Arthas out there who's recruiting undead for the alliance.   But only light forged ones, whatever the hell that means.

Choice is a very malleable word.

Especially when it's only the appearance of choice.  When all other options are removed from them.  

In actuality, they went from one master to another.  This one insecure in the relationship while on the hunt for the BBD (bigger better deal).

I remember when they said they won't make Sylvannas a Garrosh 2.0.

So what exactly is this then?

For me personally this feels like pretty lazy writing.

It could simply mean she won't be a boss in the final raid. 

She's also not likely to stand trial and reflect on her actions.  While he makes no apologies he was shown to be more than just insane and even more than just evil.  He remained firm in his single-minded commitment to his vision for his own people while actually respecting some of his enemies (unlike Sylvanas, Garrosh holds respect for Anduin based on awareness of who he is and not an ignorant perception of what they'd like to believe he is).

There's no redemption for either of them but the fact that they're both Warchiefs leading their people to ruin is all they have in common, and part of why they have that in common is because of the Horde itself and the fact that neither have personalities or backgrounds that should have made them fit for the job at the time it was given to them.  So in that way it was a fatal error and poor judgement on both the part of Thrall and Vol'Jin as to either of them having the position and you don't need 20/20 hindsight to see that, yeah, coulda seen bad times coming.

But Sylvannas is closer to an Arthas 2.0 or Guldan 2.0 and is both worse and more complicated than a more simplistic villain like Garrosh.

edit: and what I mean by "the Horde itself", well, it is an organization that was formed out of evil.  Simple as that.  It's attempted a reformation since being created as an all-Orc party bent on destruction and bloodshed, but that is its roots.  It was founded in darkness and it should come as no surprise that it is plunged into darkness when its under the leadership of those who have a completely alien concept of what "peace" or even day-to-day existence entails.   How long are the trolls and tauren going to be a part of something that predisposes them pledge allegiance to suffering, murder, enslavement and genocide?

Well there's more similarities than that though.    A fallen hero of the horde going into hiding and leading a rebellion, check.   A warchief who obviously only cares (a very little) about their race's well being and the other horde races be damned?   Check.     Messing with powers anyone with two brain cells should know not to, after they or their father has experience with corrupting, mind controlling powers?    Check.    WIlling to commit atrocities with weapons of mass destruction, on primarily civilian areas?   Check effing plus.

You could go on and on with a thesis about the way both storylines went in the same directions.

Maybe, maybe not.  You could create a similar checklist if they up and decided to make Anduin a villain all of a sudden, and gave him a scenario where he chose genocide.  Doesn't make his story anything but ex post facto "in the same direction".  Unlike Garrosh, however, Sylvanas has been on a long arc to become who she is, and not just someone who rather quickly proved they weren't fit for the job they were given (hell, Garrosh said as much and Thrall didn't listen).

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?

      Even though the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is going away in Shadowlands, Blizzard has no intent to remove the Auction House vendor from this mount and they removed the Mystic Birdhat's Reforging from the Grand Expedition Yak only because Reforging was removed from the game.
      Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be limited to the Black Market Auction House in Shadowlands and Blizzard today dispelled rumors about the removal of the AH vendor from the mount.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Trying to figure out where these people keep getting this idea that the AH vendor is being removed from the mount because that has been said nowhere and yet people are acting like this is common knowledge.
      We want to be perfectly clear on this – we do not intend to remove the AH vendor from this mount, especially when some players put in a great deal of effort to acquire this mount specifically for that functionality. Of course, we remember that we removed the Mystic Birdhat’s Reforging from the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, but that was because we removed Reforging from the game.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is something that fundamentally alters players’ flow around the world, and it’s a unique convenience, but it’s certainly not essential. We’ve seen how luxury mounts like the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth started out as something special and rare: a repair vendor wherever you are! They were originally ultra-exclusive and mostly purchased by guild banks for convenient raid use, but then became increasingly commonplace due to gold inflation over time.
      We think that a moderate amount of gold inflation is healthy. It ensures that new or returning players can catch up and participate in server economies without having to put in a herculean effort to avoid being priced out of essential goods. In this case, we want to ensure that in the long run, years from now, we don’t find ourselves looking around and seeing AH mounts that are as common as repair mounts are today.

      The side effects you get from Corrupted Items have changed on 8.3 PTR again.
      As you probably know, Corrupted Items are making their way into the game in Visions of N'Zoth. These items come with a Benthic-like buff and +Corruption, which activates various side effects based on your current level of Total Corruption. Cleansing the item not only removes the +Corruption stat, but also its beneficial effect.

      Blizzard has been working with multiple iterations of Corrupted Items on 8.3 PTR and side-effect ranges. Here's what we currently have on the PTR:
      Corrupted Items
      Items touched by N'Zoth's influence grant great power, but expose bearers to dangers of increasing severity.
      Grasping Tendrils (1 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to reduce your movement speed for 5 sec. The magintude of the snare increases with further Corruption. Eye of Corruption (20 Corruption) - Your spells and abilities have a chance to summon an Eye of Corruption for 8 sec. The Eye inflicts increasing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec while you remain in range. Range and damage increase with further Corruption. Grand Delusions (40 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing From Beyond, which pursues you for 8 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption.
      Cascading Disaster (60 Corruption) - If you are struck by the Thing From Beyond, you will be immediately aflicted by Grasping Tendrils and Eye of Corruption. Recent 8.3 Changes
      Previously, we had the effects activate at 10/20/40/60 Corruption as opposed to 1/20/40/60.  Eye of Corruption previously summoned a corrupted zone, but the eye is much more visible. Inevitable Doom which was available at 60 Corruption was removed and replaced with Cascading Disaster. You can find more details about Corrupted Items here.

      Mechagnomes, on top of having limited customization options, also come with transmog restrictions that you should be aware of before creating one in Patch 8.3.
      Transmog Restrictions
      If you plan on creating a Mechagnome, note that you won't be able to transmog Wrist, Hand, and Feet slots, because their modifications cannot be covered by armor.

      The Legs slot is also somewhat limited because it does not cover up the limbs and Redditor EntropicReaver compared most of the armor to diapers. 

      Except for their Heritage Armor, which looks cool, because it's designed around the modifications, most of the armor looks incomplete on Mechagnomes.

      Customization Options
      Mechagnome modifications can't be covered up by armor, and you'd think there would be at least a toggle to turn that on and off or perhaps more customization options available to the Allied Race to make up for it.
      Unfortunately, Mechagnomes only have four Arm Upgrade and two Leg Upgrade options this late in the cycle, and we don't know if they plan to ship more with the release of Patch 8.3 in early 2020.

      Will you be creating a Mechagnome despite the limitations? Let us know in the comments down below!
