Safe Haven/Thrall Returns Meme Compilation

Recommended Posts

Last week saw the return of Thrall in the Safe Haven cinematic and, as you'd expect, some of those who were happy to see the old Warchief return also got creative with the subject on may different levels. As usual, all of these memes were posted on r/wow and we're going to take a look at our picks for the best ones.

First off, there were plenty farmer Thrall ones, as he went for a fate of all retired badasses, and we picked our favorite below. (Source)

Then we have some Thrall class changing shenanigans, assuming he's back to his Warrior ways. (Source)

And here's his transformation from farmer to Warrior/Shaman, presented with a BfA vs. Classic slant. (Source)

As you'd expect, that handy Rogue-removing move was quite popular as well, with this one titled "Most accurate depiction of Vanish ever". (Source)

Leading into another Warrior mention. (Source)

What can I say, I like killing Rogues

Then it's on to Saurfang. (Source)

With this explicit reference in the cinematic getting a direct comparison and an apt quote. (Source)

My name is Varok Saurfang, Commander of the Armies of the Horde, High Overlord of the Kor'kron, loyal servant to the true Warchief, Vol'jin son of Sen'jin. Father to a murdered son, husband to a deceased wife. And I will have my honor, in this life and the next.

Then there are some more negatively-minded memes, starting with this light-hearted one. (Source)

But we then move to some actual criticism of all of the recent BfA cinematics and their focus, with a little Diablo Immortal thrown in to spice it up. (Source)

"BfA in a nutshell"

Jaina (or at least her meme template) also isn't pleased with the current focus of the cinematics. (Source)

"I am SAD, SAD about HONOR"

While not a meme per-se, we then have a relatively common sentiment whenever a new cinematic is released, aka wishing for WoW 2.0 with cinematic-like graphics. (Source)

Sticking with the graphics theme, this next one isn't a meme either, but a graphics comparison from someone that found the Nagrand location from the cinematic in-game. (Source)

And finally, the obvious one, the thought that most older players probably had. (Source)

So, what did you think of them and did you come across any better ones that we missed?

These ones are the equivalent of seeing marketing material of new McDonalds Hamburgers VS what they actually serve you. The classic "Expectation VS Reality".

That out of budget one was quite fun. Jaina meme is so true that even hurts a bit.

At least we got this one, which is arguably one of the most emotional things WoW ever made, even though it is not a full scale cinematic:

      Update: the hotfix has gone live.

      It seems matching of things, be it colors or shapes or whatever, isn't exactly Blizzard's strong suit, as there's a hotfix coming to the latest of these types of quests. The Runelocked Chest world quests in Nazjatar (that you have to unlock - check out our zone guide to find out how) are being tweaked so you don't have to match colors in a row but instead just complete a specified total number of matches. So you don't need to match 5 in a row, but instead let's say match 2 in a row 5 times, which is much easier to do.

      We’re adjusting the “Runelocked Chest” World Quests with a hotfix that changes the requirement from matching colors in a row to completing a specified total number of matches.
      I’m not sure how long this is going to take to change, but we’ll have it noted for you in our hotfixes list.

      Here come the inaugural hotfixes for Patch 8.2 and they're not as huge as the can usually be with a new patch! We have a reduction in points needed for a win in the Nazjatar PvP event, cursed items' negative effects have been reduced, combat allies will show back up in Nazjatar after a rezone and a lot more!

      Player versus Player
      The total number of points required for a faction to win the Battle for Nazjatar War Mode event reduced to 3000 (was 10,000). Quests and World Quests
      Players will no longer need to relog to turn in the quest "Saving Corin". Players can now turn in “Scouting the Pens” to Neri. World
      Players can no longer loiter at the teleport location for the Heart of Azeroth quest line in Highmountain. Cursed items found in Nazjatar will now take longer to affect your character, and the detrimental effects have been reduced. Fixed a bug where being mounted while interacting with Arcane Device would cause visual issues. Prince Wiggletail is now easier to defeat. Moved certain Chitterspine crabs in Bitterstone Cove that were out of line of sight behind the water wall. Duration of Glimmershell Fluid reduced to 2 minutes (was 30 seconds). Upon re-entering the zone, previously selected combat allies will once again join your side in Nazjatar. Weeping Sanya now spawns upstairs so she no longer interferes with the puzzle World Quest in the same building. Due to many harsh lessons learned from gravity, we are increasing the "Slow Fall" spell duration obtained from the top of Kal'methir Citadel from 15 seconds to 30.

      The Crossroads cutscene takes place after the Stay of Execution Scenario of Patch 8.2. This article contains spoilers.
      Baine Bloodhoof has been trapped by Sylvanas and the Heroes of both factions work together to save him in the latest chapter of the War Campaign. Jaina probably helped saved Baine, because he turned in her raised brother Derek to the Alliance. It appears that Thrall, Saurfang, and Baine forge an alternative to Sylvanas' Horde, and we will need to wait what Sylvanas is up to in the latest content update. Remember, that she wields Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire and we still need to determine her role in the major conflict against N'Zoth. Here's the cutscene uploaded by MMO-Champion.
