That Traitorous Bastard (Lore Spoiler)

So... the Archbishop is a Twilight's Hammer cultist?

That's a gut punch to us Alliance paladins and our priestly friends. Only thing worse than that would be to have Uther or Lothar raised as undead and made to serve as a thrall to the Forsaken or Twilight's Hammer.

Man I still think he got set up or replaced, but if it's actually him I will be quite sad.

Rommath's the guy that brought M'uru to the Blood Elves. I'm not too surprised by his betrayal in that regard, pretty sure he was pretty damn loyal to Kael'thas and none too pleased by the fact that the Blood Elves of Silvermoon 'betrayed' Kael'thas.

I was being sarcastic. Most of the belf leaders don't seem to be big players or even that important. I can see him being the betrayer as well.

Illidan Stormrage is "The Betrayer." THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

I don't play Horde, but I know when I saw Rommath's name I went "who?" Man, the leaders in Silvermoon just don't matter.

I'm surprised that there isn't more succumbing to the temptation of destruction after all disasters that keep piling up on Azeroth.

I mean, if I had been my dwarf paladin, slaying all these evil threats for so long, I'd definitely had thought.. "It is futile to fight against chaos, its the natural state".. And considering the Burning Legion is a bit anti-dwarf in their recruitment schemes, the Twilight cultists looks like an attractive option.


A belfs betraying their allies isn't exactly newsworthy though, I mean its the race most famous for ditching allies in wow.

WoWwiki wrote:Soon, the blood elves clashed with the Scourge and the Amani trolls, who were making inroads into former elven territory. The blood elves defended their homeland, and, eventually, having reestablished a degree of safety to their land and prevented their society from degenerating, Kael'thas left his homeland. He took a group of the strongest blood elf warriors and spell casters and joined the Alliance against the Scourge. They were eager to avenge themselves on the undead forces; however, bigotry prevented the human forces from seeing the aid the blood elves could bring to their fight. Due to those human prejudices, Kael'thas was forced to accept the assistance of the naga queen's servant, Lady Vashj, and the reptilian naga. When the humans discovered that the blood elves were working with the naga, they were imprisoned and sentenced to death by the racist human Grand Marshall Garithos (who had commanded the New Alliance). The blood elves who sided themselves with Kael'thas escaped with the aid of the naga, fled to Outland, and joined Illidan Stormrage's forces. This group of blood elves then helped defeat the demon Magtheridon and claimed his Black Citadel as their own.


Silly racist humans...

Yeah but the sound bites don't actually sound like Benedictus.

Quite, it's not like Lor'themar had anything to with saving Aveena, avatar of the Sunwell or anything >.>

How many people actually saw that? When it was endgame, it was hard, and now people go in every once and a while. The lore around the sunwell has seemed very downplayed and not that important.

And its the belf leaders, I really can't feel anything for them, they aren't cool, or epic, or really anything. They seem like bit players in the greater theme of things.
