New 9.2 Official Sylvanas Cinematic: Shattered Legacies

 Daelin wasn't slain at Jaina's consent. She refused to join his war and did not support him on the battlefield. So don't conflate her being a pacifist, and completely OCC for a race that genocides much of the human race, for "consent to kill her father". 

 

 Second, Bane's objection to the Manabombing was due to lack of honor. Not because it was wrong to kill them. His disagreement with Garrosh was that bombing theramore was a cowardly act and it would have been more honorable to let the soldiers do the deed.

 

 So get your lore straight. 

You're smoking something so these hillarious delusions come out?

Her refusal to stand at his side IS her consent. That was a pointless act of war, started by her father, who refused to listen to reason - and Jaina knew he wouldn't reconsider. His death was the only possible outcome of Theramore. Try not confuse whatever you think of the Horde with a faction that was dragged into a pointless war by a rabid dog who refuses to sleep and lie.

Also you have the entirety of Tides of War and half of War Crimes crushing your other excuse for a "point", lol. 

Baine went out of his way commiting treason against the Horde on behalf of Jaina who once was instrumental in saving his people. His messenger stated explicitly, on his request, that following Garrosh' whims is not something Baine wants to do, but since he is a subject of the Horde, he has to obey. Heck, literally every other scene Baine is in, he considers this entire war effort pointless, out loud or in his thoughts, which endangers his people - something he can't afford.

A ruler in her own right, like Jaina was, does understand him putting tauren first. You, clearly, do not.

Oh man, that campaign made even less sense than current plot of Warcraft. She knew Duran and Amon were coming (she only destroyed Duran's physical form during Heart of the Swarm, he was still in the Void), but she redirected all her attention to killing Warfield and Mengsk. They weren't good people, but still they could have served as potential allies (or fodder) against Amon's forces. So she weakened the potential opposition, yet of course she still had to win, because she was a chosen one in the end. I guess her atrocities were at least somewhat justified, because Mengsk served as a villain at that point, even though surely there were some civilian casualties as well.

Both stories share parallels. Generally, I dislike such plots where someone just wasn't themselves, but they were instead corrupted by some form of external power. Now Forsaken were never truly free, since their leader was just one of Jailer's assets. Of course, now everyone will have to forgive her, even for killing thousands and creating more Forsaken against their will, because she was missing part of her soul!

Have to disagree here, her atrocities are still atrocities. My point is she commits those in full consciouness, rather than using 'influence' excuse. Though I did like a small touch of agreeing with rerouting her troops within Augustgrad to avoid the most populated areas, even if it did make reaching the palace harder for the Swarm. Not all is heartless within that shell.

That said, Dominion was already delving into breeding Hybrids, and that kind of military prowess Mengsk could not be possibly unaware of. Whether or not he was on the whole Amon thing is up for debate, but he'd at least allow Amon to increase his presence significantly if those were left unchecked. Two birds, one Zerg.

Meant how it's viewed in universe, since it's against Terran Dominion, the "villain", her atrocities are somewhat forgiven. Note how no one brings that up again.

It didn't look like Mengsk was with Amon. Mobius Corps were breeding hybrids, but these were already under Duran's control, not a part of Dominion.

Whatever I may think of the story, this looks gorgeous.

Also, it's good to see Sylvanas' character as she was before Sunwell, since there's very little on the subject and everyone know only her Banshee story.

you obviously never played warcraft 3 xD

A random elf ranger who boasted about QT having impervious defenses for 3 missions Arthas effortlessly butchered.

Any more you know of her from wc3? Didn't think so.

      Whenever you collect a Dragon Glyph, you don't need to run to Dragonriding Trainers to learn the new talents. Talents can be unlocked on the go.
      Click the Dragon Isles Summary icon located on your minimap.

      This will bring up the Dragon Isles Summary Window. Click on "View" Dragonriding Skills & Unlocks to open the Dragonriding Talents tab.

      Here, you can spend all your glyphs on talents without visiting the Dragonriding trainer.

      DragonBinds is a helpful addon for Dragonriding, which gives you more control over your dragon.
      It was created by Gray, who, throughout Beta, released numerous Dragonriding videos. DragonBinds can be downloaded on CurseForge.
      It allows you to change your movement keys (Strafe/Forward/Backward) to movement keys used while flying your dragon (Turn/Pitch). The goal is to emulate other flying game controls and free the use of your mouse to look around you with your camera. 
      The addon works well with Pitch Sensitivity set to 5, which you must set with the following command:
      “/console dragonRidingPitchSensitivity X” (X = 1 to 10) Gray clarifies on the CurseForge page that you need to bind a key to toggle in & out of "Dragon Mode." You can do this in the Keybinds settings in Game Options. You will find that and more in the video below.

      New players are forced to play Battle for Azeroth, before heading to the Dragonflight. However, there's an easy workaround to circumvent that.
      Create a new Class Trial character in the game.

      The Class Trial will be a Level 60 character, which should unlock Chromie Time for all characters on the new account. No longer will you be limited to Battle for Azeroth content and dungeons during leveling.

      The legend is back! Doubleagent started leveling the Neutral Pandaren in Dragonflight and is now at Level 61.
      It took under 12 hours to level the Neutral Pandaren Shaman from 60 to 61 on the Wandering Isle. We'll be back with another update when the Neutral Pandaren hits 70.

      Blizzard have addressed issues players have been having with their UI profiles, where they would lose all of them. The problems are related to disconnects and there is a hotfix coming soon.
      UI Profiles Missing Fix (Source)
      We’ve seen this happen to players who experienced the bad luck of getting disconnected while loading into the game. We’ve developed a hotfix for that specific scenario, and the hotfix should be coming to all realms soon.
      But the hotfix won’t retroactively recreate what was lost. To make sure you keep your custom UI (and so that you can use it elsewhere, if you like), you’ll want to export and save it outside the game.
      While in-game, hit and then:
      Select Edit Mode. Select the layout you wish to export from the dropdown. Open the dropdown and select the Share option. Select the Copy To Clipboard sub-option. Create a blank text file on your PC, and paste the string you just copied into the new file. Save that text file somewhere safe. To use a UI that you previously saved to a text file:
      Copy the entire text from the text file. Go into Edit Mode. In the layout dropdown, select Import. Paste the text from your clipboard into the Import Text window. Give it a name and click the Import button.
