I can't be the only one that enjoyed Lei Shen as a villain, MkII

Can't take any raid involving trolls seriously am afraid. They've become the comedy villains of WoW.


This, and yeah, Lei Shen was kind of just thrown in as a "Hey, this guy is here for some reason. Stabbity stab!".

Given, it was a great raid, and the best since Ulduar.

I really love all of MoP's story. It's succinct, it's transparent, it's presented in multiple forms so that it's hard to miss, and it really feels like you're a part of the lore.

I'm a fan of Mogu lore in general so the Thunder King did appeal to me. I think he probably could have been used a little better in the IoT questlines since at present he just powers up one troll and talks to Shan Bu before heading off to teleport around his little platform until we come to kill him.

Really? I would LOVE a Rastakhan raid, but his fate is unknown currently.


Yes, this'd be win.

Lei Shen was awesome, the build-up to him was epic, the 5.2 trailer was absolutely fantastic, but then we got to him in ToT and it was a bit anti-climatic.

He should have been the one messing with us on Thunderwell Isle instead of Shan Boo-Hoo. He was a nobody.

I liked finding out how he gained power (by taking some Titan mechanics, it seems) through the lore objects. Haven't done the raid yet - do they explain more in depth what exactly he did?

Yep, blue chinese people with big strong bellies are the best villains.

Yes. You are the ONLY person out of 8 million that likes the thunder king. Literally


Elaeus is a woman. She HAS to be dramatic.

I also think that since they went that route with Garrosh, Lei Shen worked really well in term of similarities as some kind of mirror. I imagine both characters in an artwork would be cool.

I think I'd enjoy Lei Shen (haven't been able to play lately).
