I want to see our faction leaders scraping it out. Khadgar is near uselss, "You should destroy the entire gorian empire while I look for Gul'Dan." "Oh I found him, you're going to have to take out their entire foundry while I putz around here."

This "story" needs to end. In 6.2 can the portal be rebuilt so we go back there to see our faction leaders doing something of import?

I don't want to be a "commander", I'm an adventurer, I don't command people, people command ME and give ME quests.

It's always interesting hearing different perspectives. An ongoing complaint since... Burning Crusade I think, if not earlier, has been that player characters don't really feel powerful or in-charge despite their efforts. Our characters are these veterans of war--champions of Azeroth! We've killed dragons and demons and etc. and yet constantly the faction leaders or lead characters jump in to save the day or do the heavy lifting.

So, it's interesting to me that you actually want that, and to just be a minor figure in a game of bigger characters. That's not traditionally been the request of other players.

Yep. Can't please everyone. But after 10 years at this, and everything my characters have been through, I'm glad to get some recognition.


Cool! Glad you're enjoying it. :)

If I'm the commander, why the hell am I still doing all this nitpicky labor? If I'm the commander, why the hell am I off killing or gathering x of y, while Khadgar is standing around waving his hands or whatever?


You're a very hands-on leader. It's why you make the big bucks.

The faction leaders are where the lore resides, not us. I want to see the story with the characters that I love progress. Not a story about me commanding some followers. When Garrosh and Thrall battled it out, or when Garrosh and Varian clashed, that's what I want to see. The lore characters of Warcraft doing war things


Have you completed the 6.1 Legendary quests [spoilers]?
