Patch 5.4 Trailer: The Siege Of Orgrimmar
The Patch 5.4 Trailer is here and man it’s a good one!
The Siege of Orgrimmar is going to hit live servers in just a couple of weeks, and the patch 5.4 trailer has just been dropped by Blizzard. And wow, it’s a good one. Finally, the pastoral pleasantry of Pandaria has been pervaded by darkness. Finally, the green days are over, replaced by black.
And it looks rather like there’s a possibility we will lose one of the expansion’s central characters.
What’s your take on the trailer? Personally, as you can probably gather, I’m quite excited. I have long felt that Blizzard needed to make some bolder moves, lore-wise, and while the potential death of a new, perhaps rather ancillary NPC is not really evidence that they’re hitting their stride, it might be a step in the right direction. The game desperately needs darkness, in my opinion, after this rather gentle expansion, and we’re finally getting it with Garrosh.
While those of us who read GAMEBREAKER and watch Conspiracy Craft will be well aware of the vagaries and back-stories and side elements of WoW lore, many aren’t and it’s things like this that provide the information for the average player to understand just exactly why they’re marching into one of the world’s capitals and laying waste to some shaman. So what do you think about the building up of Garrosh’s story? And isn’t that “oh I hope they do come to my castle, I have such sights to show them” attitude just such a standard supervillain line?!
Oh and the Alliance did feature. Didn’t you notice the blue sails on some of those boats? Or did you blink at that exact moment?
