I have never played World of Warcraft, but I know draenei existed and are "Blue tieflings" in that they are also redeemed demons. I also like how they look so I saved a lot of art from /tg/.

How similar is their lore to 4e tiefling lore in general? Is it a straight rip, or just coincidental.

I liked this art.

They aren't redeemed demons. Like 90% of their race became demons, but the dreanei are the 10% who never fell.

They aren't.

Demons, or at least one of the kinds (one of the earliest) are corrupted Draenei.

As for them being a rip off of 4e tieflings.

Not to mention the two things are basically radically different.
One is a bunch of psudo-romans who made a deal with the devil way back when and now their ancestors live as travelers or Venetians and other such things.

Meanwhile, the Draenie are goat-Paladins from space.

They do, but you usually can't tell by looking at them. The flat-chested, broad-shouldered variety are actually older draenei of both sexes. In mid-life, when they cease to be sexually active, they undergo radical changes to their physique. Younger draenei of reproductive age are commonly identified as female by native Azerothians, but in fact could be either gender. You really can't tell until the pants come off and the horsecocks come out. Strange? Maybe. It would be stranger to expect an alien species to be just like us.

OK, here's the deal:
You have the Eredar, who are this race of powerful mages from some other world. Sargeras discovers them and corrupts the majority into major demons. A small number rejected this and fled across numerous worlds until they got to Outland and settled there until the Burning Legion showed up. The exiled ones - the "Draenei" in Eredar - then escaped once again and crash landed in Azeroth.

Draenei aren't human at all.
Tieflings are mostly human. Demon touched humans.


In WoW Lore(how it was last time I checked)
They were first known as Eredar.
Most of the Eredar were corrupted by Sargeras(Dark Titan, leader of demons, blabla).
The Eredar who fled called themselves Draenei and met up with Space Wisps and turned into Space Paladins.
They settled on the Orc Planet which they called Draenor.
Later on a Draenei Space Ship crash landed on the Planet of Warcraft and you can play as one of those Draenei in WoW.

to be fair, the trolls were the "nicest" of pre-titan savage races.

Because the Titans had granted the elements of the world life, resulting in Ragnoros Therezane Neptulon and Al'akir, to fight for their amusement.
Then Titans locked them up, banished the elements to their own planes (which Ther and Nep were happy with, but Rag just wants to burn stuff and was pissed an Al'akir is barely sentient since he's so chaotic neutral) and life emerged.
But Titans fucked with the new life and turned the Titan robots fleshy, so the Titans came back and locked them up even tighter and banished the altered races into isolation near or in the prisons of the old gods. They tried killing one, but that worked out badly so they kinda left everything as-is and went to fuck knows where.

It's alluded to in the new lore, post-retcon, that Eredar were just magically and technologically advanced, which drew the attention of Sargeras.

Velen was such an OP boss though, all he had to do was pray, and the universe answered him in the form of the Naaru.

Velen gathered up like-minded Eredar (His ubersmench I guess), loaded them onto crystal ships, and off they fled. They renamed themselves Draenei in honor of this. During the long flight, they were instructed in the teachings of the Light by the Naaru - They were all like "Yeah, seems legit."

After a while, they settled on their new homeworld, which they named Draenor.

Everything was sodomy and gumdrops until Kil'jaeden corrupted Ner'zhul into creating the first Orcish Horde under Blackhand - who then proceeded to slaughter every Draenei on the planet.

Blah blah blah... Demon corrupted Draenor... Velen and whoever he could save steal the Exodar, in the process, leaving behind a lot of Draenei.

This is where the Broken are made. It's their loss of the connection to the Light through the Naaru, and then the corruption by demonic influences that plagued Draenor that created the Broken - and submitting to that corruption, losing ones mind to it, makes Lost Ones.

While I agree that Velen's an OP boss, it wasn't just "he prayed". He found Sargeras' offer a little dodgy. The Eredar on Argus were an advanced society of glorious magitech and big burly guys in mage robes like a refrigerator in a dress, and in their possession was the Ata'mal Crystal. It was a magical artefact they'd had since a time out of mind, and Velen and his bros would go commune with it. Velen went to go clear his mind and think on the offer, and being that he's The Prophet, received a vision of what would happen if they took the offer.

Conveniently the crystal belonged to the Naaru and they were there to save the day.

I do the same. Of course I also include them alongside normal DnD Trolls and usually say that WoW trolls are the smart ones who have been known to raise DnD Trolls to be beasts of war. So along with their voodoo and regeneration Troll warbands usually end up being one of the more difficult things to permanently get rid of.

Let's face it: they aren't social people.
Your ghoul is probably more reliable than your footmen ever were, and provides more interesting conversation.

Now what you need is a warlock. They're great to have around, they can sense magic so you can use them as hunting dogs. You don't have to worry about teamkilling their hellish minions, and when worse comes to worse they can return you to your shattered husk with lots of neat new powers!

They don't really tweak gear too much. If you play around on the model viewer, some monsters (especially the WOLK skeletons and dire troll models) let you equip gear on them.

The way the devs design gear is so it can stretch around a model. They only need to tweak a few generic texture-less models to fit the race, then they've got hundreds of gears done. That's why Blizz increasingly just retextures, or simply adds a few details to a generic base.

She became a bitch for awhile and tried to wipe out the remnants of Lordaeron for being such fuckups.
But then Vereesa and Rhonin's twin kids got kidnapped and forsaken killed the captors. They were brought to Sylvanas, who suddenly became less evil and sent them back to her sister.
Then she became pretty evil again, then a blood elf PC brought her a locket from her time among the living and she threw a thunderous fit, but then mellowed out and sang a song from the elves but with new lyrics about the modern day.
Then she became super obsessed with finally killing Arthas and started fucking up by not paying attention to the super powerful minions she spent the last four years paying attention to because she KNEW they were planning on backstabbing her. She blamed it on demons pretty well.
Then, more evil than ever since she's looking at the lich king model for rulership but with improvements. She's also mind controlling dissidents within her own ranks, and turning more undead children than ever into abomination guards.

She was there in the 3 Icecrown instances.
She sent the players to go slaughter Cultists while she gathered her forces, then sent the players to start a slave revolt while she picked off Scourge leaders in the area, then finally got Arthas down to 67% (which takes a fair number of players and a LOT of tries to do back when) during which she learned how to beat him. Which may also count as her manipulating a major alliance figure into doing her dirty work and keeping the Scourge under wraps while she converts them one by one.

Not to mention all forsaken characters created after Cata are former alliance, Scarlet Crusade, and Gilnean humans, many of whom are dissenters and looking for the chance to backstab the majority of the evil forsaken first chance they get. Plus the faction of non-evil forsaken who want to live like they did in Lordaeron, starting with converting the abominations back into children.

I rp'd a female human warlock who wore the comparatively understated D2 set when she wanted to be showy, the pvp recoloured T4 for actual combat and something that didn't scream "I AM TEH DARKNESS, PLEASE KILL ME" when she wasn't doing one of those things.

I was part of a cult-style guild on Defias Brotherhood which understood that we'd never be the winners of any RP plot involving heroes, and instead sought to be satisfying villains.

It died about halfway into cataclysm, and went downhill after a particularly good leader left.

There was a short story during vanilla.
Whether it was canon or not is up to debate. But a forsaken dupes a paladin into blitzing into the Undercity through a secret entrance. He becomes a distraction for the forsaken, who enters a hidden cell in the dungeons. He addresses the occupant as "Lady Calia" and the story ends.

It's from the same batch of lore that came out with the WoW tabletop RPG books which were all non canon (including such things as trolls in Panderia, Jaina having a half-elf half-sister who made herself queen of Kul Tiras and uses Jaina as a scapegoat to maintain rule (which Jaina knows about, it's a giant conspiracy), Vol'jin trying to kill Jaina CONSTANTLY, goblins enslaving an old god, Nerubians having a secret kingdom where the living ones still are and befriending mortal races (even joining the horde and alliance) to fight the war against the undead ones, giants living in Northrend, an Old God under the Undercity somewhere, etc.).

Most of those things became non-canon, but others have found their way into the fluff that came out later in various places.

I think where WoW started going wrong is when they changed the questing dynamic.
Horde was trying to survive a world that wanted to beat them down and crush them into the dry dust. Either because they've been downtrodden their entire existence, or because they've suffered a HUGE fall from grace. The play experience was forging bonds, mutual survival, and the like.
Alliance was about rebuilding, about reclaiming a lost glory and about a brighter future. About proving you're the motherfucking best.

PvP was just PvP, plot was "well, sometimes there's border incidents".

But having the same questing experience for the most part kinda fucked that. Now it became about the new groups and everyone getting into the neutral faction's story 90% (10% for the starting areas, which begin with your faction and the small sub plot in the mid level zone).

Then Worgen got the vibe of a horde race while goblins feel like an alliance race. Couple that with shoe-horned in faction conflict as the main plot that STILL disappears when shit hits the fan.

Gnomes technically retook MOST of Gnomeragan. Thermaplugg had his lower body cut off, and he was put into a new robot body where he fled with his remaining loyalists into the trogg caves.

Not as long as the Blood Elves are enslaving gnomes.
But it's in the fluff that nobody particularly dislikes gnomes, since their only times in the diplomatic arena are usually providing things to other races.

Also, the only grudges against Draenei are reflective of fear of them and their strange customs rather than anything the race has done or is doing. But the Draenei have enough of a grudge against the Orcs it'd take an act of Velen to get them in on the treaty. Plus, young Wrynn is a bro and is totally loved by them until Garrosh flipped the fuck out he almost brokered a trade deal with the horde of trees from the alliance for exotic furs and copper from the horde (as well as no more Ashenvale logging because of said sent trees).
As for Trolls, they mistrust humans and anything tainted. But they dislike forsaken as much (or more) as the humans so fuck it.

Nothing like spending almost a thousand gold (back when that meant something) to open a portal to Xoroth, the home of the Dreadlords, to steal a horse straight from the lord of the Burning Legion's cavalry, not even knowing if you can close it or not in the end, just standing there casting while your party (who thought they were getting a free run) has to fight swarms of demons before a huge fucking boss demon steps out of the portal and swears he'll drag you all to the Twisting Nether for eternal torture...while you just continue standing there casting.

Turns out, Blizzard just took the soul out of the game. I noticed they reorganized the spells to make it easier to solo your way to max level as well.

I'd say it's the opposite.
Old talent trees had very little choice in them, as far as viability went. And they were boring as fuck, to boot, with +X Stat being the main type.
I do miss the variable damage types, though. I liked hunting for elemental resist armor pieces, and minmaxing the shit out of it to get the resist I needed for a boss while maintaining my basic tank stats.

It says a lot about how wow has changed that, even though I quit during wotlk saying I'd come back if we got green fire, I tried my free week of Pandaria and said "No. Nuh-uh. Not coming back. Not even green fire could make me want this game now."

And all of my accumulated knowledge of the old world is gone. I used to be able to do guided tours of the old instances people didn't do any more - BRD, Mara, DM, Strath, Scholo. I knew secret places to hang out, fun quest lines nobody knew about because they were a part of high end vanilla progression. I earned my dreadsteed like I earned my demons. I still have the Enchanted Gold Bloodrobe in my bank, I think.

All of that stuff is gone. Sure, the Cata world is easier to quest through, but it's not the same WoW I knew and loved, it's not the WoW that got me through a rough patch in my life. It's probably a more fun game for casual players, and they have a lot of them. I probably don't have time to play it like I used to, either.

but it's changed, and I can't go back to that crystalised joy from the past.

>>27948274
It's not just the lack of customisationg, it's the cutting out of so much other stuff. Where's Sentry Totem?

Why does my warlock have so few dots now? I juggled five DoTs on Heigan the Unclean, and now I can't be trusted to have Curse of Agony or Immolate if I'm demonology specced? Losing all the dots hurts.

At first, Wrath was great. They seemed to have tightened things up, Naxx was easy but enjoyable and Ulduar felt fucking brilliant.

The point where item level stupidity really took off, when gearscore became a big thing, and when everyone and their dog burned out?

Yeah, the Cata changes weren't for the better.
They bit off far more than they could chew, and dropped so much due to time restraints.

That being said, once you actually get to MoP it's the best it's been since vanilla. It's actually fun again.

Same here. I rolled a Druid in Vanilla expecting to be a hybrid like the game description listed, or even a specialist like in some forms of D&D.

Boy, was I wrong. The class was not even half-finished. Fucking auto attack in caster form resto-specced did more DPS than a feral-specced cat form. Druids were so rare that merely having one at level 60 guaranteed you a slot in a progressive raiding guild. Meanwhile, Rogues constituted more than 40% of some servers....

You couldn't pay me to go back to Vanilla.

I'm convinced the only people who had more legitimate fun in Vanilla/early BC were the pure classes and only when they played with an Everquest mindset. AKA "the Holy Trinity". Priests were THE healers, and drama queens to boot. Warriors were the only real hybrids, most two handers were made explicitly for them. And each of the pure DPS had a nice length of time where they were blatantly OP with the loot itemization to support it. Oh, and Rogues were virtual PvP gods. I'm convinced their current plights and population woes is penance for being the Eddie of Warcraft for so long.

Oh, and having a DPS alt just for farming and gold production was a requirement for healers. small wonder they burned out so fast.

To be fair, playing Warcraft usually means you'll save money on average. You won't buy many other games to play when your playing WoW.

That zone on a pvp server on release day was hell. Druids with the superswim buff and instashift to aquatic form could just moonfire you to death while being untouchable, and several major quest/phase chokepoints meant whichever faction got a stranglehold on them first could just halt progression for the other faction as a pile of them sat in certain caves instagibbing whoever came in.

Fuck that zone. Cata got *too* heavy on the quest paths. The zone plotlines are nice, but I prefer my MMO story to be a bit more passive except for occasional big plot quest, in the way The Secret World does it.

In fact, I pretty much prefer everything the way TSW does it. I'd pay good money for a TSW-style game with the wow lore and warlock flavour I love, but when TSW came out my blood/elemental chain-afflict-proc build made me feel more like a life-sapping spellcaster than wow has done recently.

TSW quest's are much more suitable for a single player game in many respects.

TSW's puzzles are what sold me on it. The point in the first investigation mission where I realised I wasn't looking for an in-game interactable bible to click on to tell me the correct codes, but was actually expected to open or google up a bible, work out the right passage and to interpret it for the code?

I logged out, bought the game and logged back in.

The ingame search engine is a great idea, given that you're meant to be working this shit out from clues and The Internet, but you need to put "-TSW -walkthrough" in all your searches to avoid the top result being the walkthroughs people have put online.

And yeah, TSW's PvE content is pretty much single player outside of dungeons, there aren't any group quests. Then again, the same is true of WoW from cata onwards - I don't recall cata having any quests that required me to group up to finish them, unlike some of the end-of-chain things in WotLK (like the Enki'lah quest chain). Outside of dungeons, MMOs have largely moved to content being soloable by the average player.
