Excellent read.Algalon was/is powerful, but this wasn't the first time a boss that wasn't truly 'end-game' was tougher than the actual boss. The Four Horsemen in Naxx-40 went 4 weeks without a first kill. Not to mention the fact that although Illidan was on the case of Burning Crusade, he wasn't the last/toughest boss, Kil'jaeden was.It's only early into Wrath, and although Cataclysm is on the horizon, I'm sure Blizzard will send us a new Patch and with it a new boss to kill.Captcha: nomww.
Algalon was the bigger threat sure..... but he only found out what going on after we broke down his door and stormed in. Till that point, he was merely monitoring the world and observing what was happening; between the rise of Two Old Gods, an invasion of Demons, and a little Undeath creature getting too big for his britches, the Observer didn't seem to care too much. It wasn't until a bunch of little creatures challenged him personally that he began to feel the world might need a reset.... which does seem a little strange when you put it that way heh.
I think that the Titans' complacency actually does a lot for making the gray moral scale very apparent in WoW.As for the whole idea of fighting a god before fighting a supervillian... I don't know if I would agree.It's not really all that clear on what Algalon's job actually is, other than basically being a middle-man between the Titan-shaped worlds and the Titans themselves. Sure, he could press the reset button and send us all into the void... but it seems like that could be done by almost anything nowadays.Again, this goes back to the mortals being the most powerful beings in the Warcraft Universe, rather than the supposedly all-powerful gods and demigods.After all, it only took one Orc to kill the most powerful of the Pit Lords and a demigod of Nature. It only took an enchanted axe and an Orc to nearly cut Sargeras in half. It only took a rather powerful (yet still mortal) wizard to defeat the Avatar of Sargeras himself.No, I think it's more like we fought a less-powerful god to take on one that is much more of a threat, and to some extent, more powerful.
Start pointing them out.
I think the difference is that Algalon and the Titans aren't inherantly evil in alignment. They're just doing what they think is right.Arthas, on the other hand, wants something of a necrotic orgy on Azeroth.
