This is a great write-up. Thanks for making this. I really enjoyed it. I hope Ursoc's soul still exists in the Emerald Dream and he can be saved. This was a great animation.
NGL, this made me tear up...
Ara'lon may have released Ursoc, but i don't think you seen what happened, as Ursoc spirit went into his staff.. I have watched the cinematic. a lot to make sure that is what i was seeing, so Ursoc may live yet again.We will see what happens later on down the line.
Another one bites de_dust. No problem , we can make another bear a Wild God once this is all over.P.S: You wrote wrong Andrassil 3 times. Once you wrote it as Andrassi and two time as Andassil.
Ursoc was murdered to power some staff.Ara'lon broke his oath only because his queen said "this is for greater good, lol" "ok, lol".Whole Ardenweald is a one big mockery over Domain of Life. You are literally a Life God? Too bad, you are going to the Domain of Death anyway, and some rando will destroy you for good because his waifu told him to do so.
Y'all are getting way too distraught over this. I see the ethical dilemma, but Ursoc would've given his life whether he was awake or not, the fact you're getting upset at him not having the choice is just dumb. He was already dead, his spirit was in the process of recuperation so that he could be brought back, but he wasn't alive, none of them are. In fact it was more of a purgatory than anything else. We do not know the extent of what can or can't happen, but wild gods, loa and such can't all just be gone or disappear. And if this is definitely Ursoc's last outing, then who's to say they won't bring about a wild god to take his place, not being "that" Ursoc but a "new" one, because Wild Gods still need to persist and can't just be gone. So chill, this is only the start of the campaign, we haven't even gotten to max lvl to try to garden you tend to for people who dedicate themselves to Ardenweald.
The whole nature-druidy-fluffy theme ain't my thing. But the cinematic was cool, even if I think that Bosmer-looking dude is as cringy as Ion getting up at 9am smiling to the camera.
I think you misunderstand the philosophy of the wilds. This is not the LIGHT school, this is the NATURE school. Moreover, in the shadowlands, the death side of everything. It implies pragmatism. As Lunara would say, nature isn't kind : https://heroesofthestorm.gamepedia.com/Lunara/Quotes
That cinematic is almost as painfull and beautiful as Ysera's death.
His pod faded , his anima was used to keep Ardenweald living a little longer. It was clearly seen, he’s gone boys and girls. It sucks but press on to fix what we can.
Well, technically, if all the harvesting they are doing is to keep Ysera's seed alive, then Blizzard could still pull a "And now Ysera, fully reborn, is able to revive all the souls that were used to keep her alive while regenerating in the Shadowlands." ... and Ursoc is back. Just saying that it's a possiblity. Don't forget that characters in Warcraft tend to not stay dead for very long.
I have always said it since the beginning, death is not nice. After people are dead, they have no choice, their choices are all made by death dealers. No matter how nice death dealers present themselves to be, they are in the end, Death Dealers. So we have no choice but accept it, because it is death!
I wonder if Ursol, Ursoc's brother, will somehow know what happened, or if he's going to wait in the Emerald Dream, waiting for his brother to return, although he probably won't.
