YES YES YES YESSS GIMME THAT ALLIANCE MIGHTTTTTT BABYYYY
Nathanos looking like he ain't even trying to fight her that much. Tyrande looking like shes getting corrupted kinda tho.
This was not a victory in any way. A victory would be chaining him up for the duration of Shadowlands which would deny Sylvanas a powerful military unit. What Tyrande did was teleport Nathanos to where he wanted to go which means it was a victory for him. How was this "for Teldrassil" when she just helped the people who burned it?
I took this entirely another way. Tyrande came for information and when she saw she's not getting anything from Nathanos, she disposed of him. Tyrande doesn't much care about him or him going to Sylvanas Look at how she fights him - it's a bit like when Sylvanas fought Saurfang, Tyrande just takes a few efficient swipes to disable Nathanos and question him, he's no threat to her and him going to Sylvanas isn't either. Thus the dead and passionless tone when she says "For Tedrassil" - simply not much satisfaction to be gained here for her, he's basically just some trash she cleaned up before getting on with her journey to find Sylvanas and exact her revenge.
Nathanos is so much better suited as a villain. He's a great "love to hate" character, not necessarily someone who gives you quests and whatnot. Great cinematic, even though the moment is kinda robbed of any gravitas, as he literally says he's gonna be in the Maw with Sylvanas and Zovaal. I was kinda expecting her to pull some trick, maybe just imprison him to prevent him from joining up with Sylvanas, IDK. Now it just feels like a "I went for the head", kinda moment.
Ok so next step (after Sylvanas) is Tyrande ? In the lore doing the Night Warrior ritual isn't good there's some cons, to make short : Power going UP, Mind going Down and in the end -> dead.A good thing to avoid that "logic death lore scenario" will be a divine intervention, in that case Elune and blabla Tyrande is the "chosen one" for Elune.
Probably worth noting he is going to Sylvanas without a body, and from her last interaction with him she does not particularly care about him anymore. She pretty much sees him as a useless tool after his failures. I have doubts she is going to take the effort to pluck him from the soul stream to keep him from ending up in torgast and melted down into a pair of pants. If she does? It will be to give him the ashvane treatment and make him into some abomination monster to "make him useful again" or some such.
That was so badass ^^ both sides can be happy with such a cinematic imo. Tyrande's "for Teldrassil" was excellent and moving, as for Nathanos, I really like the character, when you play horde he's fun to interract with. I personally can't wait to meet them both again, in Shadownlands. Tyrande was quite boring in Legion and BfA in my opinion so that's a good change. Here both character developments are really interesting, I'm looking forward to Nathanos' reunion with Sylvanas !
Blizzard just HAD to mock Hunters with Nathanos switching to Dual-Wielding. Next up: More High-Elf NPCs for the Alliance.
The video is not working now. I get the following message:
Does she throw that arrow at him?She has no bow around. At first I thought she had a quiver, but that thing on her side is a dagger.
