Stay Awhile and Listen Dialogue Between Dracthyr Commanders in the Dragonflight Pre-Patch

Recommended Posts

We're looking at an interesting "Stay Awhile and Listen" dialogue between Dracthyr Commanders in the Dragonflight pre-patch. Slight spoilers ahead, so be careful if you haven't played through the Dracthyr intro yet.

The NPCs are located near the new zeppelin tower outside Orgrimmar and include Scalecommander Cindrethresh, Kodethi, and Scalecommander Emberthal. At the end of the Dracthyr Evoker intro, they learn that Neltharion/Deathwing betrayed them, which they do not accept easily. The dracthyr were put into stasis for 20,000 years.

Full Transcript

Scalecommander Cindrethresh: It was Neltharion. He gave the final order that sent us back to our creches. He betrayed us!

Scalecommander Emberthal: And bid his ally Malygos to weave a spell that would put us to sleep under the guard of his blue dragons.

Scalecommander Emberthal: Where we remained, abandoned and forgotten. Awakened only when the Primalists returned to break Raszageth free.

Kodethi: Did Nozdormu tell you how long we were kept in stasis?

Scalecommander Emberthal: Nearly twenty thousand years.

Scalecommander Emberthal: While we slumbered, the kingdom of dragons rose and fell, the world was sundered, and the Aspects surrendered their power to stop Nel.. to stop Deathwing.

Scalecommander Emberthal: We only have each other now. The dracthyr need a place in this world. Maybe it will be in the Dragon Isles... or maybe somewhere else.

The Dracthyr were not even mentioned in Nozdormu's involvements anywhere. The End Times dungeons and Infinite Dragonflight involvements in particular.

 

How convenient just like the Pandaren, "hidden away from the world".

 

The infinite dragonflight would have known due to their knowledge of time but that would mean they didn't put them to their advantage in all their attempts in all the alternative realities.

 

This retcon convenience is just in poor design. It'd make much more sense for The Makers to have reinstated the dragonflights as guardians of Azeroth after Sargeras' defeat and design the dracthyr in purpose of that.

 

Then you don't retcon any shenanigans and continue the storyline...

Agreed, if they want to keep making *filtered* pull races they need to do a better job at lore and not intertwine them with existing characters, locations, etc. They just have easily could have made them just like random race that lived on dragon islands and emerged after aspects left during it's time in isolation they didn't need to be tied to deathwing or any of the BS that just makes past lore seem unreasonable like their total existence never even being mentioned off hand.

I guess Dracthyr were sleeping through The Hour of Twilight! This is common problem when they are trying to add stuff on top of existing lore, just like Jailer was added as mastermind behind most of major villains.

Also, isn't it weird how Deathwing needed powers of Old Gods to stop some proto-dragon? Besides, I don't think it was supposed to be the first case when he used their powers, he also had to be aware of them.

This lore already has too many unnecessary races that were barely relevant. Vulpera, Drogbar, Sethrak, Taunka just to name a few which aren't relevant anymore.

The lore already went Fubar years ago. So this "stasis/slept/hidden away but suddenly relevant" just piles on that. Take it or leave it, it wont matter.

My issue with it is that it would have been so, so easy this time. Good luck with shenanigans like Calia Menethil as undead for the alliance and *filtered*. Even the best writer won't get it to work considering how abhorrent is to the alliance to support undeath.

 

But having a story such as this where The Makers could easily have reinstated the dragonflights back in charge and create the dracthyr after these disasters would be effortless.

      Another year, another (few) hundred attempts at the Love Rocket/X-45 Heartbreaker mount for a lot of players. Love Is in the Air ended a while ago, and players have been comparing how they did in THE most arduous mount grind available in WoW today (yes, move over Invincible, you’re just a common drop in comparison).
      We have players that have been going at it for FIFTEEN years now, with no luck, running the dungeon for the mount on many different characters - but some managed to strike gold this year! So, let’s take a look at some player reactions at getting the mount, or, more likely, not.
      First we have the eternals as I call them, who have been going at it for a LONG time. Bob claims to have been trying for 20 years and still didn’t get one (but seeing as the event has only been around for 15 years, he's exaggerating a little - but it definitely feels like 2 decades), but that hasn’t stopped him from he will trying again next year.
      “Honestly - 20 years and still no drop? That’s insane. I can respect rare drops, but fuck this shit.They talk about ‘higher chance on first character’ and ‘bad luck protection’ - but it’s BS for the Love Rocket (or the new name).Edit: I’m a bit less pissed knowing there are others out there. Good luck to you all next year.“ - ItsFuckinBob
      “I've had every other holiday mount for 10+ years and yet the love rocket still eludes me. I run it on about 10 toons every day for the duration of the event for the past 15 years” - Forsaken-Let8739

      But that’s not all when it comes to rarity, as plenty of players have not only not gotten the mount, they’ve never even seen anyone get it in the many, many groups they’ve run the dungeon with! Now that’s partly due to the mount not dropping as loot directly, but it’s still pretty demotivating.
      "That's the crazy thing. In all my years running to get it, I've never seen it drop for anyone." - JayIT
      Even looking at just the current year, players are putting an insane amount of time for the mount, with no luck:
      "750 kills, 30 hours in the dungeon, no mount or saddle drop. Guess I'll just have to get it next year ?" - DeeRez

      There actually are those that do get it, and here are some that have ended their suffering this year:
      "15 years I got mine this year… 30 toons a day I did about 400 runs this year it will drop!" - jvaughn95
      "I've done it since the event was introduced into game and finally got it this year (there is hope!). I just stared blankly at the screen and very calmly said "I got it..." and my husband whirled around and was like what? the mount? YOU GOT IT! - he sounded more excited than me lol. I was just numb after years of trying. So glad!
      Now the saddle won't drop but oh well XD" - NeoSakurie

      And then, of course, there are the (much disliked) lucky ones:
      "Got mine on 2nd run.." - shittysituationz
      "I was away for work for all but 2 days of the event I have 2 max lvl toons got it day 2 ?" - sueybro
      "Ran it for years now but this year I went HARD. 14+ characters per day and I leveled 2 of them during the event! My WIFE walks in one time this event and gets it. Once. I'm not angry I love that she has it but ooooooh my goooooooood blizzard can we please just have a 500 run achievement for it or something at this point. I'm sure I'm close." - PolyWolyDoodal
      "My wife just dropped it after 3rd attempt. I am fuming." - xdCms

      And then there are people like roughschematics, who have a pretty good argument on the whole thing, trying to break the cycle of people getting more and more annoyed chasing the mount:
       
      So, how did you fare this year? How long have you been at the hunt, and when exactly did it start to annoy you? Or have you just been ignoring it entirely?

      A Hunter player had their account suspended because of their pet's default name.
      For some reason, the account was reported and suspended because the pet was named "Carrion Bird". What's both hilarious and unfortunate is that the player didn't even choose the name; it's the default name given in the game when you tame the pet.
      Hopefully, the ban will get overturned, since it's probably automated and unintended.
