Rastakhan ruled for over two hundred years, but Talanji is only like 17-19, going by how she describes being a young girl during Cataclysm or thereabouts but is an adult now. Did Rastakhan have heirs before who have died of old age while their father enjoyed a prolonged life, or did he really not get around to having kids for two centuries?
Also what happened to Talanji’s mother. So many parthenogenetic fathers in this lore smh.
There’s not much happening socially at the moment due to obvious reasons but I’m looking for more adventurers! With a completely redone experience for new and returning players this is one of the best times ever to get into playing some World of Warcraft. It’s free to try and you can play the first 20 levels (it goes up to level 60 now).
If you use my recruitment link I get some bonus stuff too: https://battle.net/recruit/GHRN2PG7K6
I’m currently playing on the Horde Faction on the Frostwhisper server and also Alliance on the Mazrigos server. :)
Unless a specific species of Fey, Fey with the same general appearance aren’t the same species/type like other races so two or more Fey can have the same general appearance and not be a species or related to each other.
So advancements in medical science is set at the same pace on Azeroth as it is on Earth or the collective population of its magical communities either forgot or still doesn’t know how to treat magic addiction because the Legion Tailoring questline (at least up until you have to go to Suramar, that’s where I stopped for the night) shouldn’t have ended the way it did.
Like, I’m doing this on a warlock alt who happens to be a blood elf. I RP him as a guy who turns to practicing destructive magic to fight against demons and was there - front and center - when the Black Temple was raided, and then at the Sunwell Plateau proper in TBC. You bet he saw friends and families and strangers turn to Withered during his time at Falthrien Academy. He doesn’t tap into the Sunwell anymore, not since it was cleansed (and Light and Fel don’t jive well together, the headaches are a bitch and a half, meaning in the time between TBC and Legion and up to Shadowlands he’s found other recourses of magic to slake his innate thirst because (a) demons aren’t going to stop being a nuisance the moment Argus the Unmaker bites the dust, (b) sin’dorei society has been moving toward a marriage of Light and Arcane from the Sunwell plus the amicable relations with the shal’dorei, and © said transition has most likely outlawed practicing demonology, necromancy, and Shadow magic the sin’dorei used to dabble in at least since post-TBC. So my lock knows what withdrawal is like.
Every blood elf - and high elf - should know what it’s like.
Maybe this is my fault for having the benefit of future events, since the Legion Tailoring questline takes place prior to the Suramar Insurrection Arc and Nighthold raid (so that means no arcan’dor to cure the nightborne of their affliction and no Liadrin and Rommath hitting it off with Thalyssra by the time you enter the zone proper), but I just couldn’t help but think how baffling the scenario played out. Like, the tailoring shop is right next door to the first aid station. Why did no one think to send Lyndras there and administer some sort of medicine to offset the hunger pangs until Shal’Aran was established at the earliest and arcwine could be smuggled in?
I’m not going to mention the PC, because you’re the narrative vehicle in an MMO and, not to discount one’s RP - by game lore you’re either part of a special strike corp - if you go by Tides of War - or a hired mercenary that just happens to be getting paid by Alliance or Horde. But you’re in a magic city, and a good chunk of that city consists of elves that have gone through withdrawal after the Sunwell’s implosion. I get resources and people are stretched thin and being funneled toward the war effort but WHY was this poor guy just left UNATTENDED after the second time he runs off for a fix? Instead of throwing him into the Violet Hold where he clearly withers and you have to put him down.
However, given all of the above, Lyndras probably wouldn’t have fared much better than Runas. With some help the former would’ve been given more time to live, depending on how long the timeframe between Shal’Aran’s expansion and the start of the arcwine smuggling operations is, whereas the latter withers despite draining what little mana there is to be had from blue dragon whelplings and grinding mana crystals sticking out of Zarkhenar. Pre-arcan’dor nightborne require the sustenance of the Nightwell, being from arcane energy or arcwine, to offset withering, and while we don’t know how long Lyndras and Runas were away from Suramar City their chances of survival were low when we’re first introduced to them.
This questline is probably a case of Blizzard not looking too deeply into the story and writing it “as-is”, since, again, this is set pre-Suramar and, in all fairness, you don’t quite know why these withered, ill-looking elves are turning into mindless shamblers. One should not be blamed for thinking ‘they’re regressing the same way the blood elves were’, because until the Suramar Insurrection Arc you aren’t made aware of the fact that withering is a result of the lack of Nightwell tapping and the Wretched state of blood elves a result of abusing magic (scarcity versus overabundance). Still, you’d think blood elves, like my warlock, would take note of Lyndras’s condition and bring it up to the Kirin Tor. Maybe, oh I don’t know, keep an eye on the guy and not lock him inside a prison where the rest of the otherworldly monsters and dangerous criminals are at!
(This got way too long for a rant, but I was gutted by the foresight of Lyndras’s obvious outcome and had the bitter taste of it in my mouth. Only one tailoring trainer is upset by this, but I’ll give Blizzard the benefit of the doubt because she’s the one you interact with the most as you’re learning patterns.
There’s also the matter of bringing up magic addiction and how that still hasn’t been cured regardless of the possibility, one that’s mentioned in the blood elf intro in Cataclysm, the cleansed Sunwell might free them of their dependency. But that isn’t about that here, and I’m saving it for another post, anyway, because BOY do I go hard on that one.)
I’m just going to make the ‘medical science moves at the same rate as advancements as Earth’s’ my own personal headcanon. It’ll help me sleep and think a little better and a lot less infuriatingly on the brain.)
me and the boys on our way to murder sylvanas for the third time when shadowlands comes out
Happy Hallows End!!!

Is this how we gotta install add-ons now? Even though the WTF process is just renaming things I always seem to mess it up.
Apparently something possessed me to draw an entire sketch page of Krennan.
I literally don’t know why. It’s just kinda what I’ve spent my day drawing, enjoy lmao.
Kidnapper: We have your son.
Shaw: I don’t have a son.
Kidnapper, getting frustrated: Then who’s been demanding we give him chocolate milk and cut the crusts of his PB&J?
Mathias: You’ve got Flynn.
Anduin: You’re not going to continue doing that, are you?
Wrathion, handing him a piece of paper: Oh it’s okay, I have a permit.
Anduin: This just says “I do what I want.”
Flynn: We have fun, don’t we, Mattie?
Shaw: I have never been more stressed out in my entire life.
