The Missing Dragons
Help me out here, one is prone to missing the obvious.
The dragons all seem to be gone. They are not part of the WoW story any more. I miss them. One of the major elements of what makes a fantasy tale seems to be part of our past.
At the end of Cataclysm we learned that now it would be the Age of Man. Uh oh. Don’t put us in charge, that is a mistake. Man can’t see farther than his nose and certainly can’t play the long game where major pieces come together after centuries of planning.
The Aspects gave us characters that were wise and had knowledge. One was happy to go do a quest at their bidding. Trusting the Life Binder was not a problem and serving a larger goal and uncovering the mystery was fun.
Still having fantasy elements like mages and warlocks, it feels that “our side” is kind of small and lost. Everywhere we go, we leave a mess. Siphoning the blood of the last Titan, Azeroth, for power in the immediate feels like we are being very dangerous with our long term needs.
Faction squabbling feels petty, doesn’t it?
Let’s hope that some dragons come back and we can be pawns for a bigger quest than territory battles. Shut-down Titan facilities from the past, opened and explored is kind of fun but it has to lead to some threat in our future.
That is, unless, I’m missing the obvious. No doubt I am.
