The Fate of Two Notable Lore Characters in Dragonflight

Recommended Posts

dS7JFu1.jpg

Datamined broadcast text from the latest Dragonflight Alpha Build 44999 reveals the fate of two notable lore characters in Dragonflight. This post contains spoilers.

The broadcast text is a conversation between Tyrande and Malfurion about Ysera. The Green Dragonflight needs Ysera back, so they will resurrect her… at a cost. Malfurion switches places with Ysera in Ardenweald.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Ysera, your flight needs you.

Tyrande Whisperwind: We need you.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Whatever the price may be for your return to Azeroth, name it.

Malfurion: Tyrande...

Malfurion: Ohn...ahra... I am sorry.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Tell us!

Malfurion: It's me.

Malfurion: I must be the one to stay.

Tyrande Whisperwind: What?

Malfurion: Ysera knows this -- though she would never ask it of me.

Tyrande Whisperwind: No.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Pathetic.

Tyrande Whisperwind: We will find another way.

Malfurion Stormrage: When she gave her life for mine in Val'sharah, it was not her time.

Malfurion Stormrage: And now... the balance may be restored.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Then... then I will stay as well.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Shandris and the others can...

Malfurion Stormrage: Tyrande...

Malfurion Stormrage: Should everything we hope come to pass, the Kaldorei will need you.

Tyrande Whisperwind: I am so tired, Malfurion.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Do not ask this of me.

Tyrande Whisperwind: After everything we have endured...

Malfurion Stormrage: My love.

Malfurion Stormrage: You have always been the strength of our people.

Malfurion Stormrage: They will follow you ever onward, and you will never be alone.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Until I see you again...

Tyrande Whisperwind: I will dream of the night we may truly rest... together.

Death doesn't really mean anything after SL, even less so when you get sent to Ardenweald. Hell, Tyrande could just go visit him whenever she wants to because there is no way in hell that there isn't a mage capable of opening a portal.

Whatever made you think there IS a mage capable of doing it.

Well, how else would they have left?

This implied love fest has no credibility.  Time and again, Tyrande has shown she'll toss Malfurion aside at literally any opportunity where she may feel needed elsewhere, or just to follow her own whims.

Seems weird to have it be Malfurion. Tyrande's just had a massive arc that she came to a resolution of. Malfurion's just been... kicking around?

Well, he's not the only one who goes "missing" for several patches. We can assume leaders are often busy with something, but they will never go into specifics. This seems like easy way to write him out, but do they really need to do this? There are many more leaders who aren't doing anything and it's never addressed.

Yeah, as you say -- why write him out all of a sudden? Why not Tyrande, whose story has come to a decent end and could be satisfyingly laid to rest for at least some time?

...this smells of the same "epic storytelling" as Vol'jin dying in Legion and deciding Sylvannas was the perfect choice because fever voices.

At least he was killed by some nobody demon out of nowhere.      Malfurion just literally gives up living by what we see there?


It also seems hamfisted to the Nth degree.    How does this logic work, how does Malfurion know this, how does it make any sense.    Malfurion was in the general zone area when Xavien used his corrupted crystal, as he fully planned to, on Ysera.    How was Malfurion supposed to be the intended target in that storyline?     How do you even start to logic her "giving her life for him"?    There was a hot pursuit and she was ambushed.    And even if this junk story logic was true, how would Malfurion have the cosmic all knowing knowledge about any of this?     Just stupid as hell.

I agree. I also think there are certain characters in WoW that are pillars, and shouldn't be going anywhere. Examples would be Thrall, Vol'jin, Varian, Garrosh, Malfurion. Even with complete character arcs, I don't see any benefit to killing these characters off, or making them disappear. If or when they do, it's always come, to me, as either shock value, or just in a disrespectful way.

I dont have a problem with these characters dying, but i really want this "death" of furion wont be a total "only to shock thing". I would be very sad, because i really like him, he is married, sleeps most of time, has a emo brother, likes animalz, he is basicly me, joking aside, he deserves a good ending if he is going to die, a high quality cinematic like saurfang, and very very very meaningfully, i always played as a tauren, but it doesnt mean i dont like other faction characters

I'm okay with characters dying too. For instance, I specifically omitted Uther as I felt his death made perfect sense in the storyline of Arthas. I just don't like when they unceremoniously get rocked, like Vol'jin, or low-key get killed like Garrosh in an in-game cutscene at the end of a zone.

 

I'm the same way with cross-faction characters too. If they're meaningful, I will care about them, regardless of side.

Ah yes that one character that spent 0 time in Shadowlands knows that he must sacrifice himself to ressurect Ysera. Anything to eliminate characters without Mary Sue potential I guess.

Tyrande has been the leader of the Kal'dorei for over 10,000 years already is totally affirmative action for women. Malfurion has only assumed a leadership position during wartime situations, and even then primarily as the head of the druids and not as head of state.

Turalyon is leading Stormwind in Anduin's absence.

Genn Greymane still represents Gilneas.

Council of Three Hammers is 2:1 male:female

Mekkatorque still leads the Gnomes

Velen still leads the Draenei

Tushui Pandaren by Aysa Cloudsinger

Jaina inherited Lord Admiral of Kul Tiras from her mother, who took over after Daelin died during WC3:TFT

Ren'dorei are jointly led by Alleria and Umbric

Lightforged are jointly led by Turalyon and Fareeya

Mechagnomes by Prince Erazmin

 

Thrall - Orcs of Durotar, Garrosh during Cata/MOP

Rokhan - Darkspear Trolls, previously led by Vol'jin

Baine - Tauren, previously led by Cairne

Forsaken - Desolate Council is 3:2 female:male, previously led by Sylvanas since WC3:TFT

Sin'dorei - Lorthemar Theron, previously Kael'Thas since WC3:TFT

Bilgewater Cartel - Gazlowe, previously Gallywix

Huoshin Pandaren - Ji Firepaw

Shal'dorei - Thalyssra, break away faction of nightborne led by Elisande for past 10,000 years just like Tyrande

Highmountain - Mayla, inherited due to pre-Legion death of father

Zandalari - Talanji inherited from father after death at hands of Alliance

Vulpera - Kiro

Mag'har - Geyarah, Thrall's alternate timeline female version, basically a what-if that escaped a collapsing timeline

 

TL;DR - You're a putz

That's not even relevant here.    Tyrande has been the leader for millennia.   Malfurion iirc only leads the druids, and has been spending most of his time in the emerald dream for a while.     Doing this "writing him out of the story" bit makes no sense except yet another middle finger to night elf lore.

Big Male Lore Characters that have died (Not including antagonists)

Rhonin

Krasus

Tirion

Varok

Both Black Hands

Medivh

Durotan

Ner'zhul  (briefly used in SL)

Garrosh (briefly used in SL)

Vol'jin (briefly used in SL)

Arthas (briefly used in SL)

Varian

Ursoc (Became Eggsoc for 5 seconds)

Malygos

Cairne

Alt Velen

King Rastakahn

Big Female Lore Characters that have died

Onyxia (Over 17 years ago)

Aegwynn (Death not even in game)

To add to this, the vast majority of negatively represented characters used as villains are male.

Just as a bonus, I find it funny Draka is in Shadowlands and Durotan isn't, i'm not including characters which are active in Shadowlands in this list.

TL;DR Try not to only address half a message, 'must remove men...'

 

 must remove men, only women, must adhere to message.

      The creator of Subcreation, Alcaras, created a visual comparison of M+ and raid item level distribution, comparing the ongoing Shadowlands Season 4 with Dragonflight Season 1.
      With the recent changes that surfaced about Great Vault scaling up to +18 in Dragonflight Season 1 and the introduction of Unique Drops, Alcaras created a visual representation of item level distribution in Mythic+ and raids in both Shadowlands Season 4 and Dragonflight Season 1.

      Fishbones is back with more Glyphs, this time creating grimoire casting animations for spells! We've already seen the very talented glyph-maker take on many classes and create various cool and weird concepts from them (ranging from blacksmith elementals and Warrior battle standards to many versions of Paladin wings, Zandalari Warlock minions and a lot more) and now casters get to sling spells out of giant books!
      These would need to be for longer cast spells, as the standard ones may get a little annoying with the flashy animation, as acknowledged by Fishbones as well.

      When it comes to fan creations there are many different levels of awesome, from something you can see a ton of passion was put into and it's cool because of that, to a unique art style used, creativity at work etc. But sometimes there really is no need to qualify the awesomeness, as the work really speaks for itself. And, well, TethanProps' Frostmourne lightsaber 3D print is just that:
      And here's an earlier video without the light part:

       
      The best part is  you can actually even buy the files to 3D print it over on TethanProps' Etsy shop (for around $16)! Some truly impressive work and the Lich King himself would be proud.

      Blizzard made some tuning adjustments to a number of classes on the Dragonflight Beta before today's raid testing.
      (Source)
      Based on various data points, including recent Beta raid testing, we’re making tuning adjustments to a number of classes. In addition to new and returning abilities, the new talent trees allow players to choose abilities that were previously exclusive to one another in the talent row system.

      The amount of reputation required to increase Renown has been increased in the latest Dragonflight Beta Build.
      There are four main Renown factions in Dragonflight. The maximum Renown is 30 on launch. To increase your Renown by 1, you must currently fill the bar to 2,500 reputation. You gain reputation by completing quests (main campaign and side quest included).
      In the previous build, 1,000 reputation was required to increase your Renown.
      Fortunately, Renown achievements are account-wide, so unlocking the rewards on one character will automatically unlock them for your alts.
