The first delicate buds of spring hold in the forest of Elwynn move in and the gnomes fall from the trees. One of them strikes the floor with a damp clapping and spread the largest part of his body fluids in the foresting. “Cool.” On the back of her night sleeve, a night eleven fighter crunches a potato chip after another. The good from Westfall. “The last gnome was a record, what do you mean?”
Besides her, a dark iron paladin sits on the floor and desperately tries to prior laugh at a piece of popcorn. “Yeah, did not think that Hogger-Watching had a humor!” A bow of arches hail three gnomes around Hogger, who already promotes the next little figure in a high arch in the nearby river – or at least her upper half.
A soft “PLPP” sounds beside the elf and a gnome with pink hair and the thouserm of miles of a war veteran resption. Then he drops into the dust and just stares into the sky. “How to the Nether we should defeat this monster?” The Gnom starts up and stares at the dwarf of saucer-sized eyes. “Hogger is invincible. Hogger is eternal. Hogger has been here since the beginning of World of Warcraft (Buy Now). And he will be here when Azeroth crashes into the sun.” He shudder. “Even if we should do it to defeat him, he will only be stronger.
Rogues like Illidan worked so well in their second attempt, because they were previously built over years. Source: Blizzard
He will overthrow the dungeon of Stormwind to chaos! See! “The Gnome waves with his chubby little hands and grab the interface frame to keep him the dwarf in front of her nose.” His own hill was named after him! He has fan toy in the dark moon year market! On the Classic server, this monster has 666 life points! Repeal your poor sinner, because the gnoll of the end time has come! “
Much later, after the appearance of patch 9.2.5, the night elf and the dark iron dwarf are in front of the champion master and listen to him at his raid monologue. His voice is booming in low standard villain bass through the room and its emphasis has the iridescent expression of a bored laia theater performer, which was forced by his spouse to a secondary role. Frosting, the dwarf sweeps through his fire-red beard and turns to his night elf colleague.
“Tell me… somehow that does not make any sense, or? Either the guy is the best strategist I’ve never heard, or he has thrown in his cell as long plans to the wall until one has remained sticking ” The elf shrugs with the shoulders. Your chip tube rustles. “No idea, did not belong. Hogger was better.” The dwarf rushes the upper-minded equivalent of a gray test image for a while and then nods slowly. “Yeah. Hogger was better.”
The best of World of Warcraft is the worst of Azeroth itself
With Arthas, Blizzard changed his rogue design, so that the Oberbösewicht was now active in appearance and interacted with us and the world. Source: World World of Warcraft urgently needs better rogues. After becoming known that the Chairman at the end of the enlargement experiences the N’zoth treatment and is disposed of shortcuts, one could listen to the facilitated breath of the entire gameship to Argus. As soon as the first relief drained, but questions remained open: What makes a good rogue?
And why was the Chairman as the opponent so desastrous bad? In this article, we examine the most popular tropics – from the anti-rogue, about the chess master to the omnizidal, and apply them to WOW. The recorder tricks of retroconditionality and the emotional bond are knocked out on vulnerations (but also strengthen!). One thing is clear: not only the game mechanics, but also the villains are with which a WoW extension is or falls. We even go a step further and claim that Word of Warcaft would not be playful without good opponents! Oh, and of course, a small villain’s ranking of the given potential is also there.
Action and reaction
Before we explicitly treat World of Warcraft, we first establish a few basic things that make the whole thing a little catchy: once thinks of your favorite series. At your favorite movie or your favorite book. To the Nether, even thinks about your favorite children’s markets. You will be clear to you very quickly: If it is great stories, you remind you as much as the evil as the good of the story. If it is bad stories, you even tend to remember the rogues of history! This has several reasons of which the most obvious is: the rogue is more interesting.
We know what the type wants to do in the bat costume, we are quite sure that the half-blade wants to throw the ring in the volcano, and the type with the blue lightsaber does not look like he put in a black armchair and “I am the Senate.” would be great. However, the evils are often so strange, brutal or unpredictable that they remain in thought for a long time after the end of history – they often wear the cooler clothes.
Garrosh split the fan base – as the first big rogue created in Wow, but he fit well into the game and received an excellent structure. Source: Blizzard Nice and good, “The evils are cooler” is a nice summary that does not meet the subject. Instead, villains dig deeperly deeper into our brain as hero, because almost always the old writer cliché “evil, good react” comes to application. To explain: In Azeroth, a big danger from the trick box jumps in every extension. The heroes and nations of the Warcraft Universe are surprised and receive a heavy blow after another – clear, somehow you have to establish that the enemy is dangerous.
However, if you break this formula on your core, it goes beyond that the rogue acts and the hero reacts. The Legion attacks and the peoples of Azeroths come together! The scourge is destroyed in Warcraft III the sunburn and the blood eleven folk arises! The Chairman escapes and the packages combine their powers! While the evil appears powerful, but maybe unintentionally moves into the focus of the story, because the heroes race the villains only afterwards until they (as always) to catch up with the goal and thwart his plans.
