This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So I finally finished the Dominance storyline. (Another of these topics YEAH)

All I can say is... holy ****. Such a good conclusion to what was already a really good storyline. Purge of Dalaran is in itself now one of my favorite bits of any video game I've played, and the final quest was great as well.

It really shows how far WoW has come when it comes to story telling. Everything about it was handled perfectly, through the developing of previously unused characters (Seriously, Lor'themar is one of my top Warcraft characters now, and the Blood Elves in general were actually used in a really awesome way), them showcasing the different races of the Horde beginning to go against Garrosh (And even managing at the same time to showcase why the Horde would be against the Alliance) as well as the different ideals among its members, and it being paced really well.

10/10 excellent job Blizzard would recommend.

Now time to do the Shieldwall chain.

I love the Purge of Dalaran questline too, definitely one of my favorite questlines in WoW (Horde side). Haven't tried the Alliance's line tho'.

How did the purge of dalaran go down horde side? I've done it on alliance and we teamed up with Jaina and kicked the sunreavers out.

Edit: And yeah, also really enjoyed this whole story line.

On the horde side, the sunreavers aren't really being kicked out, they're being imprisoned in the violet hold and the silver covenant attacks and kills anyone who tries to escape dalaran.

Not buying SSB4 without the inclusion of the flower fairy Lip as a playable character.

It's basically mainly you going through Dalaran saving as many Sunreavers as you can, since a lot of them are being hunted down by the Silver Covenant. You start in the sewers and make your way up, fighting the Silver Covenant that get in your way and saving Sunreavers. It was actually a really powerful quest in my opinion, because for the most part all of the people you're saving are more sad than anything. It's less them being angry about this all happening and more them being sad that they have to leave Dalaran and their lives behind.

Wow. That's awesome. Almost like alliance and horde are doing the things the other side have been known to do.

Which, if you think about it is much worse.

"Nah, Bro. We're not gonna kick you out. We're just going to throw you in prison! Oh, you don't like that? Well, it's either jail or death, Buddy."

Though, on the horde side it's never clearly explained 'why' they are. Perhaps infered that the Sunreaver's *spoilers*

involvement in helping recapture the Bell from darnassus might have been the tipping point, but it's never said outright in the horde set of quests.

Still, though, Garrosh *spoilers*

being all like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING ISHI! STOP DYING. NO, I SAID 'STOP' DYING. YOU HAVE TO BE STRONGER THAN DEATH, BRO!" was kind of laughable.

*Spoiler time is now*

Honestly what the Alliance does in our side isn't really something our character *wants* to do. Hell, if I had the option to turn around and leave and continue the storyline, I would have. Jaina has turned into almost as big a monster as Garrosh has, and I wouldn't be surprised if we end up having to atleast fight her to the point of knocking what little sense that woman has back into her head at some point in the future with MoP.

Even Varian is appalled at what happens, and basically tells your character "You were only following orders, remember that", or something to that extent. The entire scene was basically designed to show how far Jaina and Vareesa have fallen since Theramore and Rhonin's death, and it does not seem to bode well for their future either.

It does seem that Horde/Alliance reversed roles when it came to the Purge. For the most part during the 5.1 chain as Horde, you didn't really want to do a lot of the stuff you were doing, because it was all in the name of helping Garrosh out with controlling the Bell. However, you stuck with it since both Lor'themar and Vol'jin were saying that they knew you didn't really like him, but they wanted you to stay by him and follow orders so you can be close when the time comes to take him out.

However, with the Purge, while you didn't necessarily want to kill Kirin Tor members, you wanted to save as many Sunreavers as you could. Those were some of the only quests in the chain I actually felt good about doing because while I knew some of the Sunreavers did screw up and you did help them, these were innocent people being run down in the streets, and you wanted to save them.

Really the whole situation was a mess on both sides. Because some of the Sunreavers did definitely deserve to be kicked out for helping out the Horde, but the extremes Jaina went with the Purge were far too big. And really it was just a sad situation, because here was this city that was supposed to be a symbol of peace and learning that was now turned into a war zone.
