Still hoping Azshara isnt just thrown in as a first raid tier final boss, she deserves better. My current hope is that we sort of weaken her a bit, and then she either comes back stronger for the final tier, or even some time in the future. Maybe just have her retreating, or her just straight up beating us. Maybe we then realise we can't win sperated by factions and need to unite. Anything really that stops her being a throw away character.
We Wuz Titans Mon!
Im almost 90% sure Azshara won't die even if she is the raid boss, it feels wrong having her be a basic mid raid boss kind of like how the iconic Warlords were petty dungeon bosses in WoD. This time i think blizz learned their lesson and will carry Azshara forward into future expansions in some way, i can't see her dying in this expac.
So Azshara will be the boss for the Alliance questline raid. Which we'll only get to see due to gameplay reasons, not because the Horde will actually get to participate in the story. Meaning we'll not get any of the quests leading into the raid, or the story behind it, because Kul'tiras will have NO quests for the Horde, only for the Alliance (that was mentioned in Blizzcon too, it's ALL separate, Alliance dungeons are ALLIANCE and Horde dungeons are HORDE, we only get to run the opposite faction's instances at 120 and we get absolutely NO context on the story or anything, just like old Deadmines, for example, is for Horde toons, and Wailing Caverns is for Alliance toons). That means ALL the effort we Horde players put in Legion will have been for NOTHING, in the end ONLY the Alliance will get to claim to have saved Azeroth. Why doesn't Blizzard just come out in the open and tell us to delete our accounts already? Why must we be so utterly humiliated?
PLS Don't kill Azshara, just that, don't kill her PLS ! She deserve her own expanshion.
Mm yes, you're correct that a fair bit was retconned during the release of Chronicles. However, I do believe that the next book of Chronicles will give us more information during that time period (That's why Tyrande's on the cover)As for not being able to stop herself from drowning... she was a mage, not a warlock, duh ;) No underwater breathing spell! :P
