Let’s get right down to brass tacks – Deathwing is dead!
Good job, Horde, I definitely probably couldn’t have done it without you. Well, I could have, but it would have been a way bigger headache.
From what I hear, at the very end Deathwing managed to step it up from standard crazy to hoo-boy molten tentacly super-crazy, but Thrall and the Dragon Aspects (now emeritus) were able to supercharge the Dragon Soul and go all kablooey on his ass.
The former Aspects came to Orgrimmar yesterday to deliver a piece of Deathwing’s jaw as a trophy (although let’s be honest, they could probably give a piece of Deathwing’s jaw to everyone they meet individually and still have plenty left over for the Wyrmrest gift shop – have you SEEN that dude’s jaw?). Thrall wasn’t able to make it because of something or other he needed to go back to Nagrand for with Aggra, but it was still cool to meet Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera.
Maybe not so much Kalecgos, actually. He was kind of mopey and whiney the whole time (you could say he was BLUE – GET IT? HAHA I crack myself up sometimes). Apparently he only had like a week left on his Aspect probationary period. I guess he just missed logging enough hours on the job for his pension to kick in. Kinda sucks, but I guess that’s the risk you take when you apply for a funding-conditional job.
Alexstrasza seemed cool and all, once you get past her apparently shopping at the same Respect My Strength But Look at These! outlet that Sylvanas goes to, but I’m also wondering if she just has trouble controlling whatever hocus-pocus she has going on. At one point Eitrigg’s pet worg went up to her and rolled onto its side. Alexstrasza obliged and rubbed its belly a little. Now the worg’s pregnant. Way to not know you own strength there, Life-Binder.
Anyway, they tell me they’re all going into semi-retirement now, and really, after thousands of years on the job (well, other than Kalecgos, but we’ve already covered that) they’ve probably earned some down time. Also this way the chances are much lower that another one of them will eventually go crazy and make us have to kill them. Well, except for Nozdormu, where we’ve pretty much already established that the chance is like 100%. So it goes.
