Just saw this on Twitter:

And Jaina called for genoicide in Tides of War. Meanwhile Varian has apparently found his inner peace or at least has suddenly become reasonable.

What are the odds that Tyrande will be talked down from violence by Malfurion, Velen, et. al just like Jaina was talked down by Kalecgos and Thrall in Tides? You know, so women get to be unreasonable and emotional while the men around them act like cool, logical creatures despite the fact that EVERY OTHER TIME they're not.

Now I almost feel guilty for praising Kosak for the Dagger in the Dark Scenario.

....If this is actually the second coming of WC3 Tyrande, then nobody's going to be talking her down -- they're be getting out of her way. Which would entertain me at SO MANY LEVELS.

I hate to break it to you but the A Little Patience ally-side scenario has her basically tell Varian everything he does is right and he's the High King.

Me, I spent most of that scenario wondering how the fuck Varian dares keep telling people to trust him. Sure, what he's saying now sounds reasonable, but doesn't he realize his trust capital is so far into the red it's invisible to the human eye?

Because of course the human whose entire lifespan is a blink of Tyrande Whisperwind's eye is the one in the right.

The thing I'm actively resenting the most about this whole thing? Varian Wrynn had a perfectly reasonable personality/characterization in the much-reviled comic book. He did. It took basically ignoring everything done with his character there to turn him into the irrational douche he's been for the last two expansions and five novels, to add tension to his narrative arc, and bring him around to this point. Does he at least have the decency, Alliance-side, to acknowledge what a fucking tool he's been? Does the narrative? Or do they simply do a seamless personality transfer between Varian and Jaina?
