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:

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 15 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!

      Blizzard has shipped an encrypted build for Shadowlands Alpha, meaning it cannot be datamined just yet, but we're getting really close to the F&F Alpha announcement. 
      Earlier today, Blizzard added Shadowlands to the Battle.net App Catalog and now the first build has been shipped. Unfortunately, it is still encrypted, so it cannot be datamined at this time. You can learn more about Shadowlands in our overview in the meantime and stay tuned for Shadowlands Friends & Family Alpha!
