You know... WoW lore isn't as bad as it is thought out to be.

(IMO)

Think of Vanilla WoW. There were a lot of interesting things there. The whole hakkar thing, that was cool, although you had to do a bit of research to know what was happening. Ahn'Quiraj, that was pretty amazing as well, if you look up the War of the Shifting Sands on wowwiki. The Nefarian thing, with the Chromatic Dragonflight, that seemed awesome, and them fighting with the Dark Iron who summoned Ragnaros, who enslaved the Dark Iron, that was awesome as well. Naxxramas - Well that was a little bland but whatever. Burning Crusade - at the time it seemed awful. Space, spaceships, etc etc, but it set the stage for Wrath of the Lich King. It closes doors, such as Illidan, but it opens so many more. Him using Magtheridon as a resevoir of blood for Fel Orcs, that was great. The Alliance on Outland and Azeroth rekindling, finding out what had happened to them. The Horde, meeting their ancestors, Thrall meeting his grandmother, a ton of Orcs sons, such as Garrosh Hellscream. Also, the Naga didn't do much, but w/e. The Blood Elves, now that was pretty awesome. After Kael'Thas was killed, he was brought back to Kil'Jaeden and served him. They created Fel Elves. He tried summoning Kil'Jaeden, and don't get me started on the whole Anveena thing. Karazhan, that was interesting to see what happened there and we still have yet to find out why (the dungeon underneath Karazhan, anyone?) also the Dark Riders and the Scythe of Elune, I think that was Vanilla WoW but that was awesome too. The Netherwing Brood, I liked that. Now in Wrath of the Lich King it is full of lore. Garrosh Hellscream starting to revert to Old Horde ways and wanting to fight Thrall. The thing with the Lich King's heart, the Knights of the Ebon Blade, the Ashbringer, Tirion Fordring, etc etc etc. Mal'Ganis being alive, which I liked. Although Muradin being alive was retarded. Yogg-Saron corrupting Titan guardians, and soon being released. His presence is everywhere. Saurfang's son and Bolvar Fordragon dying at the Wrath Gate cinematic. The Undercity splitting apart, but I wish Varimathras wasn't eliminated so quickly. Wish he was a raid instant. In HoS, with Brann Bronzebeard, when you discover that stuff about the Titans was the most epic, perhaps, not many people seem to know about it
The reason the Titans didn't kill the Old Gods is because they are parasites, and Azeroth is their host. Humans were made by the Titans, along with the Vrykul. That dead Old God that is killed in Darkshore might be the reason half of Azeroth is missing.
I haven't even mentioned Malygos yet, and with BC setting the stage the Nether Dragons Tyrygosa brought to the Nexus awoke Malygos. Dalaran, which was kind of eh but cool at the same time. I'm probably missing stuff too, but now that I think of it, WoW lore can be pretty good.

Mal'ganis is alive in WoW? What has this world come to?! Mal'ganis is the whole reason Arthas went to Northrend to get Frostmourne! What garbage.

How are you suppose to live in the world of warcraft when everything is done for you? I think WoW's aim was to get more players into the world of warcraft, which became a huge, complex series.

Because none of us are as cruel as all of us.
I think it woudl have been much easier if they started WoW at the same time TFT started, lore-wise. That way everyone is 'alive' and 'killable'. Which is the caues of all whining and complaining. In a MMORPG, bosses can't stay dead forever, they have to 'revive' and pretend whoever killed them in the lore didn't. They can't introduce many new characters cause then it would complicate things more.

Yes, yes, of course. But they had to cut up the lore to do this? :(

Well, you go back in time, in the "Caverns of Time" to "The Culling of Stratholme" and defeat Mal'Ganis there, then he moves to Northrend and wait for Arthas, as far as I know.

Yup, CoT - Culling of Stratholme goes back 7 years I believe where Arthas was going to 'Purge' Stratholme and to eventually defeat Mal'Ganis.

Mal'Ganis is dead in WoW, but you can go back in time at CoT where he is alive =)

Then that's different. If he's in in the Caverns, then there's no problem. I thought you meant that he was still out there spreading the plague or something.

Mal'Ganis is Alive
Read "Encounter at Onslaught Harbor"
There's a line of quests at Onslaught Harbor, the Scarlet Crusade place in Icecrown Glacier, in which you end up killing the guy Barean Westwind, and out from his corpse pops Mal'Ganis. He survived and with his homeboy, Balnazzar, has been corrupting the Scarlet Crusade. The Scarlet Crusade was once the Silver Hand, how do you think it got corrupted?

That's true, when you get Mal'Ganis to 1% in the Caverns he does reset to 100% health and say 'Bring your forces and meet me in the arctic lands of Northrend, there is it where you will find your true destiny, young price.' (or something like that)

So yea... actually you didn't kill him in the Caverns, and is he alive :p

You do realize that that was what Mal'Ganis said to Arthas, causing him to follow Mal'Ganis to Northrend?

I really don't see what the problem is with Mal'Ganis being alive. People think they've killed other people all the time when they really haven't; it's the same thing here.
However, the manipulative and traitorous Dreadlord was himself betrayed, as the Lich King's first whispers to Arthas were that the time for his vengeance had come (this was the first step towards Ner'zhul's independence). Arthas defeated the Dreadlord and believed him to be slain.
There, it's in text now. Arthas only believed that Mal'Ganis was dead. He was never really dead, and even if Arthas had killed him, Mal'Ganis is classified as being undead. Anyone could have revived him. What's the problem here?
 

Azlier

Old World Ghost
Hmm. Very convincing, though dreadlords are not truly undead. They are a type of demon known as Nathrezim. I don't think demons are eternal like undead. Next, Frostmourne steals souls. What keeps it from stealing Mal'Ganis' (if he has one, we may never know)?
 

Knight7770

Hippopotomonstrosesquiped aliophobia
I would think that demons are immortal, or at least more powerful ones like Mal'Ganis. Also, about your Frostmourne point, I doubt that demons would have souls; if they did, would they still be demons?
 

Azlier

Old World Ghost
Demons? Immortal? Hmm... Tichondrius: Most powerful Nathrezim. Dead. Archimonde: Incredibly powerful warlock. Dead. I can't remember any others at the moment.
 

Knight7770

Tichondrius was killed by Illidan who was imbued with the power of the Skull of Gul'dan, a large fel-magic source. It is plausible that dreadlords are killable by large amounts of fel magic, because even Arthas with Frostmourne could not destroy Mal'ganis. It is also plausible that the death of Balnazzar was staged, further fueled by the events of the Battle for the Undercity.
And:
Two conclusions that can be drawn are that all dreadlords are undestroyable and we have to kill them every time they rise back to power, or we need enough Fel-magic to even make Sargeras flinch, which is a lot of fel-magic, to fully destroy the dreadlords.

Hmm. Never seen those before. At this point, I surrender! :(

    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York

    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
