The Tyrande questline would have been a PERFECT moment to offer choice to the Alliance PC: Either follow the Nelfs right away or stay with Anduin. They could have had the break in into the Zandalari treasure chamber only available to those that stayed, and the Darkshore questline only available to those who went after Tyrande.But that would have required them to give a &*!@ about the Alliance narrative. Which they obviously don't do, unless it is showing Jaina in an emotional video.
I dont like this, WoW isnt a common RPG like Final Fantasy, that you can simply restart the game. I have too much time invested on a main char, for example, to miss an item because i chose a wrong option...
I mean.... this is nothing but the illusion of choice, as some others have pointed out. None of the choices actually matter as the story of this expansion is done and decided.... all this is worth for is whether you want to collect some stuff. Which, as people have also pointed out, brings up the issues of missing out on collectables now. I like the idea behind this "choice" but I'd rather Blizzard use it for the side quests or zone quests rather than the overall story of the expansions. Reason is that the major/expansion story is set and written and can't be changed, but you can make branching paths for zone/side quests. For example, there's a zone quest where you have to make a choice between saving a town or saving a garrison, and the consequences of the choice lead into their own quests and affect on the zone. And yes, Blizzard can use sharding to show different zone states based on your choices. I think something like this is a better use of choice than getting some different text flavour or a toy.
god i so dont care about lore. imma do both anyway for the toy/transmog
would side with sylv but I aint subbing to this garb lol
Where blizzard was with path chooce at Pnadaria vs Garrosh? But ofc, once its virgins queen blizz need do something. I dont care what i need sacrafise, i want banshee head.
I hope they don't merge or split up the factions.
Player Choice aka level more alts to see the other side.
This is a weird way to say "We tried to Garrosh this story again, and you caught us! We're sorry."
player choice? more like horde player's choice! I'm really sick of BLZ's faction imbalance bullshxt!
Player's choice? So where is the Alliance's choice? I haven't made a single choice throughout all of BfA as off now.Oh, wait in the next patch we can choose what will be the name of a ship! Now that's a meaningful choice!/ /s
These aesthetic rewards are pretty cool. So far 3 classes got aesthetic changes; NELFS got black eyes, BELFs got gold eyes, and Orcs got straight backs.
