Hateful Dalish Reaver Warden, Trickster Mass-Murdering Blood Mage Hawke. Because sometimes you just have to kill a lot of people.
Hey. Hey. I have another Warcraft-related question.
I wanted to know what do people think about the Alliance-Horde conflict?
PvP, game mechanics etc. aside, do you think both factions should continue to fight against each other, or should they finally, finally find a way to stop and live in peace - or, well, as peaceful as it’s possible in their situation, lmao.
Like, people who mostly play on one side, do you dislike the other faction, or don’t care? How does that reflect on your characters and what do they think about their “enemies”?
The reason I’m asking is just curiosity, as I’ve remembered my time on the Russian servers, and what people told there, what my guild was like, and wondered what are people’s opinions here.
Me, personally, I… Eh. While I like PvP - I find it pretty fun, okay - I’m not a fan of the whole “Alliance-Horde war” thing. To be honest, it does make sense, since many races from both factions share an… unpleasant past and even present, to say the least, and are far way too different, and story-wise it creates the needed tension and drama if not handled poorly, but… but. I’m probably one of those people who’re just "Please stop, this is stupid. Stop killing each other. I don’t like this. Can’t you be friends. Please. I’m really tired of this"
here’s hoping no one will read this as me forcing my opinion on others or accusing everyone of having wrong opinions like everyone did LAST TIME
OH BOY MY PET HANGUP
Ongoing factional conflict cripples storytelling. It’s like the Sword of Truth series where essentially the same mini plot happens every damn book. Peace? NO! Bad thing happens! Fight! Rinse, repeat. There’s no feeling of progression in the inter-faction (or faction dissolution) story, other than the Horde’s recent fight to figure out its own identity. But again, mini plot in a larger tapestry that’s getting moldy.
Since BC, we’ve had the neutral zones and/or neutral factions beating on this conflict to no avail. There must always be
a Lich King Humans and Orcs. It’s stale and I don’t think there’s many more ways they can write different versions of the Jade Forest while there’s cataclysmic wars going on.
But… so much of the universe identity is pinned on Red vs Blue so doubt there’ll be much change. WE CAN DREAM. Though Vol’jin is not Thrall riding a tide he can barely understand nor is he Garrosh going on a bender. Varian is whole again and distinctly calmer. So maybe they’re setting up for a dissolution. WE CAN DREAM.
Probably they’re setting up Jaina to do the LOL BAD MEAN THING let’s FIGHT NOW mini-plot. Sigh.
I wan’t easorian to know that the other day I was getting really cocky while killing Garrosh because I was top dps for once and for some reason I thought, ‘the laws of the universe no longer apply to me, I can take my sweet ass time getting out of annihilate’.
do you know what I did
I definitely did NOT run out of annihilate, that’s for sure.
instead I casually jumped back and forth while looking Garrosh in his smug pierced face, only to be killed at the very edge of the aoe mid-hop
Proud of you. Might say the hopping mockery was… dead funny.
Well other people call me fat I just get so frustrated because it’s like, I KNOW. I’m not blind???? I’m completely aware of this and if you MUST know, I AM NOT HAPPY THIS WAY. I never have been. This is why I have no self confidence, it’s because I’m overweight, and I have been my whole life, hence why I’ve always hated myself. And thanks to anti-depressants I’ve gained almost 100lbs in the past year and I am well aware of how fucking fat I am. But yes, thank you for you input. I hadn’t realized at all. Now we must throw a party. And eat cake, so I can get even more fat thanks to your ignorant ass.
And I’m tagging this in Aion so the asshole who sent me the ask will be delighted to know about this. Assuming they came from the aion tag as they were comparing me to my toon.
Qol is right, some anon(s) in the Aion tag never put their Decent Person pants on and likes to send around dumb messages. Don’t take their word vomit seriously, I’m sure you are lovely.
(I am apparently easorian's “ugly super-nerd girlfriend” or something like that, which I'm not sure is a very good insult because I am pretty amenable to 2/3rds of that. wonk wonk)
STOMP THEM TO DEATH COOKY. Some in that tag are not worth your time and we love you. Shit is hard but we’re behind you, even if we’re not participating in the game anymore, or talk often.
(Man, we haven’t gotten hate mail about our fake relationship for some time. I’m sad about that.)

Then there’s this dork.
Everyone enjoying their updated booty? I mean models. Updated models.
i would like to preface this with something that isn’t strictly relevant to your question, but i think it’s good for ppl to hear my headcanon on this one: i like the ideas that azerothian societies with heavily gendered roles still aren’t gender prescriptivist. when a child comes of age, they’ll choose their own gender, based both on how they feel inside and what role they want to play. like, you’re not a sentinel because you’re female; you’re female because you’re a sentinel. the fact you chose to be a sentinel means you are a woman because women are sentinels and sentinels are women.
because azeroth is a magical world, it’s possible that after they made their choice, they start developing dimorphic characteristics relevant to their gender regardless of their reproductive capabilities? but i dont usually expand on that
in the case of trolls and dragons, some of their genders are exclusive to folk with certain types of reproductive system, because they explicitly involve having e.g. the ability to lay eggs - but not all of them. in fact, i like the idea the majority of genders for trolls and dragons are open to anyone regardless of their bio sex or reproductive capabilities.
anyway, back to night elves
i think my headcanon there causes an interesting situation where there’s no discrimination against people who identify as a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth, mostly because people don’t get assigned a gender at birth. but there could well be a stigma, discrimination, or simple lack of visibility in society, for people who don’t identify as ANY of the genders available. “I want to be something else” or “I don’t want to choose” or “I’m not sure, I feel like both sometimes” would either be seen as a sign of great promise or an omen of grave danger for the child, depending mostly on the attitude and prejudices of the adult they said it to
but then again, there could also be where they play a special role - as ambassadors between the two “halves” of society, because they’ve been on both sides of it - they understand what it’s like to be both, because they are both. so where a binary-gendered sentinel and a binary-gendered druid might not see eye-to-eye because of their singular perspectives, someone might call for a bigender or genderfluid night elf who’s been in both roles, to help them see each others’ points
i think civilians (you know - armourers, medics, merchants, farmers, scholars) would have more freedom about their gender, although perhaps people would characterise them and sometimes misgender them based on what job they did? someone who was a farmer might be gendered as “he” because they work with plants, and someone who was an armourer might be gendered as “she” because they work with weapons, even if they became a civilian and didn’t join the sentinels, priesthood, or druid sect because they aren’t a “he” or a “she” thank you very much
what do u think
