I saw a post on reddit the other day where a WoW fan was complaining that there aren't really any likable or endearing characters left in Azeroth and beyond currently. At first I thought to myself: that's not true! There was ... But upon reflection, I couldn't think of any character in WoW: Shadowlands that I really like, sympathize with, or find cool.
Let's take a look at the current portfolio of heroes and villains:
The Shadowlands themselves might have one or two interesting characters up their sleeves. However, none of the Theotars, Drakas, and Mograines of posterity really come to the forefront, which is due to the division of the Pact campaigns. But that leads to these characters all remaining pale.
Meanwhile, there aren't any really cool villains either. The dungeon master is just evil and nothing more, even the Burning Legion had tons more profile. Denathrius would have had potential, but met his end way too quickly in Castle Nathria.
So I'm wondering how the story of WoW (buy it now €14,99 ) will continue in patch 9.1 and beyond, when there are hardly any or no characters I can really identify with. I want heroes who are really about something, who are personally involved, whose motivations I can relate to, who offer me more than mere world-saving or self-pity. I want villains with profile, like Arthas, not gray, bald decals of a real antagonist.02:30
What do you guys think about this? Do you agree that WoW currently lacks heroes and villains with profile, likeable characters? Or are you of a completely different opinion and completely satisfied with the current character portfolio of the Shadowlands?
