"What Sword" Memes and Discussion

Recommended Posts

Yesterday's Asmongold interview with Ion Hazzikostas spawned a new series of memes and discussion, as a certain giant implement sticking out of the planet got a lot of new attention! We've already heard that Sargeras' sword is nothing but a "splinter" now in previous interviews, but this comment really fired up the community, so let's take a look.

Let's start at the beginning with the actual source comment, as Ion took the comedic approach to Asmongold's question:

Then the Warcraft twitter joined in:

And then the floodgates opened:

The comment also spawned a lot of discussion as to the actual fate of the object, with many different opinions:

The sword opens up a total cross-over opportunity for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.

Member when they hyped that the sword will play a role during the Jailer fight?

The best way to resolve the sword would be to have Azeroth's avatar wield the sword in some future ex pac (any maybe there is a difficult way for us to obtain it as a legendary).

Maybe Hazzikostas meant that it is not actually a sword.......

It isn't, it's a Splinter.

I'm curious on this myself... do you have any sources? I don't think I have heard of this plot honestly.

      We have a very Dracthyr-looking piece of concept art from way back pre-Vanilla, as xperio28 spotted a bulkier version of the new race coming in Dragonflight in the Art of World of Warcraft book!
      There's been a lot of talk about the look of the Dracthyr, mostly focusing on their size and bulkiness, and while the art below almost certainly isn't of this specific race, as it was made pre-Vanilla WoW, it's looking very similar:

      Source: xperio28.
      The text is very hard to make out, but enigmapenguin and YendorWons in the thread may have figured it out, at least partially:
      Greater whelp grown to man size will hunt other dragon whelps then larger dragons feed on The whole "feed on" aspect is particularly interesting, as there's plenty of speculation going around on whether or not Galakrond, the OG dragon-eater will have something to do with Dragonflight's story (especially with the potential for the Infinite dragonflight's involvement).
      We've have plenty of bipedal dragon-like creatures in WoW over the years so the connection isn't direct, but it is interesting to see how far back the idea of playable-looking dragon race goes, especially since we know the original plan was to have many more playable races, including naga.
