I can't believe Vanish is still bugged even in WoW cinematics.
When you Vanish but he still Executin
Feelin' execute might delete you later
That's because It's working as intended™
After how annoying rogues are with it they deserve all the bugs.
Also it's literally in Saurfang facts
High Overlord Saurfang once attacked a rogue with cheat death on, the rogue still died in one hit.
That's not a bug! He just does a lot of damage and has the vanilla Deep Wounds talent. Working as intended.
Farming? Really? Orc of your talents
Hey man, he basically skipped an expac, gotta get to 120 somehow.
Raising boar to then kill to farm xp.
If this is not a new profession in the next Expansion, then there is no justice in the world.
I'm more offended its not a lore correct 'Pig Farm.'
If it was a pig farm that gank would have worked. Saurfang can't get near 'em anymore!
it's a peaceful life
Oh look, here's Aggra, back from the dead
Heeere you go!
This is the sort of accuracy I wanted in the Warcraft movie.
It's like Hollywood thinks they wouldn't make any money if they just use videogame cinematics as their concept. Sonic would be dope if they just use the videogame models instead of making their own
if they just use videogame cinematics as their concept.
Blizzard's cinematic department could make some of the best animated movies, if blizzard wanted them to.
I'm thinking the cost to produce such high quality shit for a 90 minute film would be out of control.
They have some rendering capability since they made this, but it's probably not nearly enough to render a whole movie on a realistic timetable. DreamWorks, Pixar, Disney, and some other studios dohave the kind of hardware needed, but partnering with one isn't as easy as it seems. You've got a pretty big logistical problem in getting the data from the Blizzard art people to the render farm without leaks, but it can be done.
It's not gonna be cheap, but I would definitely see a movie in a theater if it looks like this cinematic, even if it has CGI humans too, where I didn't see the Warcraft movie.
This community amazes me.
I'm no one's savior
That is demonstrably bullshit on like 5 different occasions.
Deathwing feels sad.
This is Thrall post-Garrosh. He might have saved the world from Deathwing. But he also almost ended the world by failing with Garrosh. Maybe he even thinks the Horde itself is a failure and resents all the faction wars he's helped cause. He's helped Azeroth, but in his eyes maybe he's done more damage than good. Legion was the last time we saw Thrall, where he gave Doomhammer to some random Shaman because it wouldn't listen to him.
Thrall has every reason to give up and step back now. But I think we all agree that we're glad he's back in the spotlight again.
Not just a random Shaman, a legendary hero of Azeroth. It makes complete sense when viewed from the personal perspective of your characters story. At that point in the story your character is probably more worthy than Thrall to wield it.
Your response is correct but less fun lol
"...and on the seventh expansion, Green Jesus arose once more."
Metzen looked at his bank account saw that it was good.
Those are some shitty assassins if they are being followed by a giant orc warrior without even noticing him.
Saurfang sneaking up on rogues sounds accurate given his meme status back in the day
Saurfang is the one ganking the rogues.
Saurfang has x-ray vision but spared them just to look at undead booty while travelling
Can't redirect light back into the eyes of people you're trying to hide from if you just CLEAVE the light before it touches you.
The Orcs are good trackers, and tracking two walking Undead rogues should't be that hard. The smell of decay everywhere, the blighted weapons, the constant glances at recount, all the impromptu duels..
You missed the incessant jumping.
Source: Former Undead Rogue main.
Follows trail of dust puffs
Follow the trail of ganked lowbies and the spamming of recount in chat, as well as the complaints there carrying every one else.
He also found a corpse with thousands of stabwounds in it's ass and footprints that lead up to it then zig-zag as if whoever made them was strafing in place
My dude just been chugging Elixirs of the Searching Eye since BFA started.
Sylvanas has clearly lost the plot if she sent some random undead rogues to kill the world shaman and one of the most powerful characters in Warcraft lore, TBH.
Typical , 23 other horde members are the other side of Nagrand making final plans , and the two rogues went "Go Go Go" and ran in there ...
Rip stabbyJoj0 and MizzP0intyEnd.
this is hilarious and i hope it becomes canon.
like the other horde watched Saurfang snap that rogue in half and were like "hmmm maybe we should go do m+ instead."
"PvP is bullshit anyway"
They were probably supposed to wait to try and take his family hostage. Two rogues with Thrall's baby? They'd be able to get him to kill himself probably if they wanted.
So why did they attack then, rather than wait for a more opportune time?
Probably because they thought they could take them both out with surprise poison while they were both unarmed.
If you notice, the one slashing Saurfang left behind a green mist.
that's a really, really, really, really good point. Thank you for sharing it, because I hadn't even considered it.
Headcanon says Saurfang is bullshitting, he was followed but he used them to drag Thrall into this. Makes Saurfang a deeper character and not boring muh honor.
To elaborate; Saurfang covered his tracks acting as if he knew he was followed since Elwynn Forest, obviously he knew. Why would he still go to the Dark Portal and endanger Thrall? It only makes sense that he uses this cleverly to force Thralls hand and legitimize Saurfangs opposition.
What even is orc honor? Everyone seems to have different definitions for it.
It's entirely possible that by 'follow them' he meant he was given information that there was an assassination plot against Thrall and he went to talk to him and the rest was just plot timing.
Thrall already hiding his chest transmog. Living in the future
wow character: [exists]
blizzard: SO SYLVANAS TRIED TO KILL THEM
D&D: so sylvanas kinda forgot about how strong Saurfang is
Sylvanas: sends two piddly no face assassins to kill Thrall and or Saurfang, one of which is the greatest shaman in Azeroth, the other of which is perhaps the greatest mortal warrior, both of which have proven able to destroy armies and warlords with relatively little effort
Sylvanas: that evening, suddenly sits up in bed .....................wait
They really only think with hype, and not reason.
That being said I'm pretty sure Thrall is still neutered and Saurfang wasn't supposed to be there. A bad plan, still, but not as bad.
Plus, neither of Thrall or Saurfang are armed. I think the real question is why Saurfang followed the assassins without bothering to find a weapon. Both he and Thrall had to improvise theirs.
They literally tell you that Saurfang followed them.
Sylvanas sent them for Thrall, not knowing Saurfang would be there as well.
...which is why saurfang arrived first despite following the invisible zombies...
They were waiting for an opportunity to strike. They just determined the best opportunity to be when there are two hero level characters instead of one.
It’s possible they were either: (A) waiting for Thrall’s family to come back to take them all out at once, (B) about to go for Thrall when Saurfang arrived and decided to wait a min to get some info on the conversation, or (C) determined that Sylv would be extra happy if they took out both orcs and so decided to ambush both
But strong Saurfang didn't forget about Sylvanas.
In the comics it's shown that she was planning on killing her sisters, saying that they will serve her later, soo......
Thrall: POCKET SAND!
Saurfang: "This is my Horde! I don't know you!"
Sylvanas wanted to kill Thrall? Well, that's the end of her.
I mean, likely wanted to kill Thrall, Aggra, and his children.
You know. Just some morally gray things.
Nah, She just wanted to give them the gift of undead as a thank for all he has done.
Just gonna say it: Death Knight Thrall as lieutenant to Sylvanas and new undead leader after she's gone would be a twist I did not actually expect.
Probably for the reason that's happening now, that Thrall doesn't side with her enemies to dismantle the Sylvanas horde and to free the horde from her reign.
Ah the ''Give a potential enemy a common enemy alongside my actual enemy'' tactics that the Alliance also used with for the Dazar'alor attack.
Sylvanas knows it too, always make sure people have a reason to try and kill you!
I think Saurfang was actually followed, but lied to win Thrall over.
>TFW they Vanish but Execute still goes through and gets 'em. :D
saurfang op blizzord pls nerf
Civil war in horde again? I bet baine will be new warchief in the end of bfa.
Ah, shit here we go again.
Glad to have Thrall (And Chris) back. Sylvanas fans are not going to be happy about this though.
Sylvanas fans are not going to be happy about this though
Sums up all of BfA
at the start of bfa people were all out saying they supported sylvanas.
I supported her. Then things started to unfold and I realized there was no grand plan. It was just stupid decision after stupid decision as a character assassination.
blizzard a year(ish?) ago: "it's not going to be garrosh 2.0"
narrator: "it was exactly garrosh 2.0"
It's more like Garrosh 0.5
At least his actions made somewhat sense (at the beginning)
At least with Garrosh he managed to accidentally burn every single bridge with the other Horde leaders until he just decided "fuck you guys, you guys are assholes"
Cairne challenges him to a fight, "hell yea dude, I'm gonna kick this strong guy's ass"
accidentally dies, "oh frick"
Vol'Jin: I don't like you
Sylvanas: Does she really need a burned bridge?
Lor'Themar: Can I have some writing?
Blizzard: Not until Pandaria, then you get a side questing area where you share the spotlight with the person who people think leads your race, you're not allowed in the main plot though, except a snarky 1 liner in the final raid.
Rolls 8 orc warriors
Hope you have Tusks of Mannoroth and Gorehowl for mog.
Dude I've been running SoO on my gnome and tauren warriors for like 17 months straight and its still not dropped.
Gets Tusks on gnome
Siege of Orgrimmar 2: Undead Boogaloo
More confirmed each and every day....
No, this is totally different! Morally gray! NOT Garrosh 2.0!!!!
The first few seconds I was really expecting some superheroes to come decapitate him.
You really forget just how massive and imposing the Orcs are in lore, overall such a badass cinematic.
Thrall's neck looks like its made out of green steroids.
Morally grey memes back on the menu
So let me get this straight:
Sylvanas, the supposed "super duper major mastermind thinking 50 steps ahead of everyone playing 18D chess" sent 2 weak rogues to kill the former leader of the Horde/Shaman, who also, if she's some mega-mind, would know Saurfang would be there, and if her assassins were foiled, would reveal her true self to the rest of the already shaky alliance that is the Horde?
That was her master plan? 2 quickly dispatched rogues. The end?
It drives me insane. She was such a good character back in WOTLK and even a while beyond that.
They are just doing this because they need a big bad, that's it. And if they plan to do a twist where it was all the Old Gods making people evil, that would be even WORSE.
Well you can't expect a cohesive and reasonable direction of story, these writers work for Blizzard you know.
So Saurfang and the Horde are pretty emphatically the main characters of WoW now, right? Like, it's just not a debate. The cinematic was superbly well done, but this is still the third! cinematic about Saurfang quibbling about Sylvanas leading the Horde and totally being another Garrosh.
Agreed, i wonder if we’re ever gonna see an Alliance cinematic that doesn’t just focus on Anduin and Genn.
The Night Elves suffers genocide and horrific cultural scarring? Sounds like an excellent excuse for more Anduin character development
The non-human races in the Alliance only really exists to make the humans look stronger and more awesome to Blizzard sadly.
You misspelled Saurfang. 3 full cinematics about how he feels sorry while Teldrassil burns
Even the fucking Anduin cinematic was just an excuse to focus on Saurfang even more.
I only remember being smitten with the animation of Anduin and Genn in that cinematic so after reading these comments, I had to go looking for it. What's funny is I couldn't find it at first as I scrolled down the list... scrolled back up and realized Saurfang was the thumbnail.
You never know, though. We might have a great cinematic waiting in the wings..
I'm sure they'll give us a nice cinematic for the next horse mount we get
Give it some of that good background plot development while the horde get another badass mount
If this was a movie (and I'd argue that if they're making these many cinematics they should bite the bullet and make an animated movie), Saurfang would be the main protagonist, Zappyboi the impressionable sidekick, and Thrall the returning hero to help legitimize Saurfang as a hero in everyone else's eyes. Sylvanas, meanwhile, would be the supposedly-tragic but really a card-carrying evil villain.
Which is exactly what is happening in-game.
EDIT: Changed the section in parentheses to reflect that I meant an animated movie. I liked the first movie, I would just love to see another one.
Bro, he snapped his neck after he vanished
Saurfang sneaks up on rogues.
The Chuck Norris memes are canon now.
Once he caught her, it was all over. Invisibility doesn't do jack if they've got hands on you. She's fortunate that Saurfang didn't have a bladed weapon or he'd [Cleave] both in two with a single blow.
I fucking love how they mimicked actual in-game combat in the cinematic, with the stealth noises, vanishing and stuff. WoW gameplay has always felt really disconnected from the lore and epic feel the cinematics always give, but this made it feel like that's just actually how it is lorewise too. It's not just gameplay conveniences, rogues and assassins will actually completely vanish and made bwooo noises. I love that, it feels so iconic.
Holy shit this is so good. IT'S SO COOL TO SEE ROGUES GOING INTO STEALTH AHHH!!!
I don't know what I expected tbh but to see WoW stealth represented visually the same way as Starcraft active camouflage is interesting
not sure what else they could do with it tho
They mentioned this in the BfA pre-story that Rogues are using Shadow magic to create Stealth mechanically, so now we know what that looks like visually. Pretty cool, in my opinion.
Didn’t know that. Always thought they were just lil sneaky bois
They were until recently; I rememeber reading a long long time ago (might have been in the class descriptions in the cata guidebook back when people bought those things) that warriors, hunters, and rogues were the 3 classes that were basically the ordinary people because they didn't use any form of magic.
Wonder if we're ever gonna end up getting some Alliance focused cinematics, or CG trailers, or literally anything related to the story because at the moment it's literally just "Horde fighting Horde, Alliance sits on hands."
I havent played the game since last October and I'm just curious. Does the alliance still exist at this point?
Actually we disbanded months ago due to budget disagreements. We figured the horde would have realised by now but they are too busy fighting each other to notice.
all the budget for the alliance went into duplicating horse mounts
The Alliance is just Asmongold at this point.
Right so this is the third cinematic starring Saurfang.
Wasn’t this an Alliance vs Horde expansion starring Anduin and Sylvanas? Guess 50% of the player base can go fuck themselves.
Remember when people thought we'd get one about Greymane and they'd alternate back and forth?
Your mistake was thinking Blizz giving any shit about Alliance, least of all Genn.
We are officially less than an afterthought.
When do I unlock "snap bitch-ass Rogue's neck" talent for my warrior? Cause I've wanted that for awhile now.
Why would Sylvanus want Thrall assassinated?
Idk, doesn't seem like a good move. I can't think of a situation where killing Thrall works out for Sylvanas. Granted, she never did understand the concept of doing terrible things galvanizing her enemy.
To stop the very thing that's going to happen now.
I guess, but I think Sylvanas failed her prisoner's dilemma.
Saurfang is there to convince Thrall to help him start an open rebellion. There are two outcomes: Saurfang convinces Thrall or Saurfang doesn't convince Thrall. Sylvanas also has two options: Have Thrall killed or don't have Thrall killed.
Here are the outcomes:
Saurfang convinces Thrall, but Thrall is killed. The Horde is galvanized into open rebellion.
Saurfang doesn't convince Thrall and Thrall is killed. Saurfang uses the act to galvanize the Horde into open rebellion.
Saurfang convinces Thrall and Thrall is not killed. Thrall joins Saurfang and joins the Horde in open rebellion. Worst case scenario.
Saurfang doesn't convince Thrall and Thrall is not killed. Open rebellion does not occur.
In three out of four of the scenarios, Sylvanas has to deal with open rebellion on top of the war with the Alliance. Maybe she thinks that she can deal with a rebellion without Thrall being part of it, but idk why she'd risk it with the war with the Alliance only growing in scale with every day. Maybe she just didn't want to leave risking Thrall's involvement to chance or assumed Saurfang was sure to convince him.
Or she kills them both like it looked like it was intended and now Baine and Saurfang is gone, the potential leaders of the rebellion and with no strong leadership it will ebb out before it even begins.
She doesn't want another SoO. By taking out leaders like Saurfang, Baine and Thrall, it weakens their ability to organize against her. Thrall was off on his own during MoP but he still came back to stop Garrosh. Hell he had the Kor'kron at the Echo Isles attack Thrall, the founder of the Horde, on sight.
Lovely cinematic, as always.
Now if the alliance could get any attention, that would be lovelier.
The Alliance? Alright.
MORE SAURFANG IT IS.
i'm going to get some hate. But can we please have an Alliance cinematic too? And not just some Anduin talking to Saurfang.
Like i dunno Anduin seeing Tyrande massacre an entire horde regiment and realising she ain't fucking around no more?
I didn’t even realize it until this comment but you’re right. We haven’t really seen ANY alliance type cinematics..
Every single cinematic they've released this expansion has been about Saurfang and the Horde. Anduin was in one of them, but it wasn't about him at all, it was about Saurfang and releasing him.
The Alliance has gotten shit this expansion. Horde now has 3 full cinematics while the Alliance has 0.
It's OK next one will be Anduin looking sad for 30 seconds
If it makes you feel any better, I'm sick of Horde development too. Alliance can have a helping of morally grey, too. Bring back kickass pissed off Tyrande. I'm tired of Horde in-fighting.
Im a bit confused... Is this Nagrand? Did Thrall go back through some portal to another world? Or where is this supposed to be?
It's Nagrand yeah. He went back to Outland with his wife and kids
It's our Outland from the burning crusade, (the portal is still technically open) so yes it's broken up nagrand. That was where Thrall originally met Aggrah, Greatmother Geyah, and Garrosh. It seems he probably moved back there to take care of his children away from Azeroth's issues.
