Thrall wasnt hiding exactly. Hed retired. Though he may have been hiding from the Alliance. its been shown in the past that they dont care if he declared his independence from the Horde, theyll capture him and try him for supposed crimes either way, as we saw in the goblin starting zone. He had left the Horde to join the Earthen Ring to heal the world as a neutral party but the alliance didnt care they still saw him as a valuable prisoner.But in all likelyhood his hiding away was more just to separate himself from the world as he felt he would be of no help. ("Im nobodys savior")
I do find it very curious that Sylvanas would send just two assassins after Thrall when she damn well knows that wouldn't be enough to get the job done. She wouldn't have sent such a puny force after Saurfang either.
I'm still hoping for this to be a redemption story for Sylvanas, and we, like, restore her soul or something and make her a high elf again. She could go back to being Ranger General of Quel'thalas, I'd be fine with that.
I wonder if it was Nathanos that sent the assassins and not Sylvanas... Another thing that is bugging me about it is that how did Saurfang know and see to follow the assassins in the first place? When he first walked into Thrall's place, did anyone notice that he was looking around even before he spoke? Also, those assassins were not that good because they were heard before being seen. Saurfang looking back, Thrall looking up to the roof...
This is such an incredibly bad storyline. Swiss cheese of plots.Sadly it goes very well with this expansions quality.Garrosh 2.0 storlyine + WoD 2.0 expansion. Yippee!
