I really feel like this was a missed opportunity for Gilneans to take back...Gilneas.Who cares in Tess in a worgen when you don’t even have a home?Plus there is no one fighting over those ruins anymore and the Forsaken don’t hold the UC.
We all knew it would be either about Gilneas or the curse. Having it about both is a pleasant surprise. Especially in a short story like this, with Tess getting more spotlight and learning a lesson.
Nathanos Blightcaller: Run away, little girl. Run away.Nathanos was clearly using DBM for this fight.
I kinda don't like this heritage armor. Deep down inside I was hoping for something reassembling Van Helsing :P
The shoulders don't look complete, I hope not at least.
I like Mia. She's cool
Worgen heritage armor is hideous...other than the top hat.Why couldn't they make it look more like the HotS version? Sure its super similar but something is way off.
Not a fan of the shoulders but that top hat makes this all worth it. Nice to see some more story around the Tess she's been a favorite of mine since the rogue hall.
The heritage armor is awful, gold doesn't work and it just looks off. How does someone get paid to make this?
Hideous questline to match hideous armor.
Missed opportunity for a monocle/top hat combo, all the while Goblin's look like the WoWhead mascots.
I feel Tess becoming a worgen kind of undervalues her character. I liked her just being a rogue that gets by without any special abilities besides her own wit and skill more.
I also dislike the shoulders, and I also dislike Tess' decision to not be made Worgen. I get what she means, yes they are all Gilnean first, I totally follow. But to be a leader of your people you need to share in their plights. Her people would never truly love her if they didn't know that she knew firsthand what it meant to be a part of their culture now, for better or for worse. Goldrinn showing her this rage should show her that she needs to be strong enough to be able to conquer the rage, if she is ever to be strong enough to lead her people when the time comes. I vote for re-writing that decision.
One thing I've noticed this patch and 8.2.5 have a lot of is characters "moving onward" or finding a new path. After the war has ended, everyone seems to find themselves in new roles. We have a new Horde council lead by many of the racial leaders, Rokhan officially becoming the new Darkspear chieftain. Calia and Derek, most likely, becoming the new leaders of the Forsaken. Tess Greymane thinking about her future as leader of the worgens.A lot of things moving forward/in new directions. I do like that!
Fake Nathanos on point with these one liners: "You howl like a wolf, but fight like a common dog". Lol
To be even more clear, this feels like someone saying 'we should just get rid of labels.' The only people who really call for that type of action are the people who don't need a label to begin with, to be recognized as a minority of whatever form that minority may be, its a very naive way of looking at things.Its not that we allow labels to define us and who we are, but to recognize that those labels are yes in fact a part of us, and should be recognized in a positive and expressive light.
The shoulders are too much. They need to be much smaller and more subdued to fit the theme appropriately.
