And back again!
So for my first post of this year I shall start by talking about others. Namely Laeron.
That bugger has stood me up in Stormwind, in plain new year's eve. Motive?... Apparently he met an archmage, called Sibila, back in Dalaran when he decided to play the hero and rescue her from a loose Doomguard who suddenly showed up in the city streets.
Of course I totally understand the fact that he couldn't just turn his back on a demon running around Dalaran, but he did trade me for an archmage... a blood elf archmage no less... Argent Champion alright, but still a blood elf.
I've got nothing against blood elves you know, my friend Thanneth is a blood elf but she's also a demon hunter, we've got that in common. Now, Laeron has nothing in common with an archmage... other than the fact that he used to be one before becoming a demon hunter. Yet such is a part of his life that is long gone. It ended a very long time ago when the Burning Legion destroyed our lives and turned us into monsters... and then, he decides to spend the new year's eve eating mana cakes... in Dalaran, in the company of a blood elf archmage... I suppose it could be worse.
Well, I wanted to see the fireworks in Stormwind so that is exactly what I did, but... when the show
ended I teleported to Dalaran and met up with Thanneth who, until then, had been pretty much sitting on her ass around the Fel Hammer and didn't know a thing about Laeron's sudden appetite for mana cakes, so I filled her in. Don't really know if she felt upset or not since she used to be the centre of Laeron's attention.
Anyway, curiously Thanneth knows Sibila... and Sibila's brother, Kiryel... and their younger sister Cylla. Perhaps not in person, but she used to know their family before becoming a demon hunter. She told me the Silverwings are an old and noble high elven family, or they were before their world turned to chaos during the siege of Quel' Thalas. The three siblings were the remaining survivors of an entire family, wiped out by scourge during the siege, but the arcane magic has always been part of the family, so it came as no surprise for Thanneth to see one of its members becoming a dedicated archmage and a Champion of the Argent Crusade. What did, sort of, surprise her was to hear that a former Moon Guard sorcerer, and currently demon hunter had devoloped a sudden appetite for mana cakes. And apparently Sibila is indeed powerful enough to conjure an exceptional mana refreshment table for a nostalgic Kaldorei. So, I shall keep an eye on those two because, no matter how powerfull that mage might be, Laeron is still my friend.

So here I am back in Dalaran.
Finished my job in Azsuna and Val'sharah, so now I'm lending a hand in Stormheim. Curiously I do like there eventhough I found a bit weird in the beginning. The Vrykul are interesting people and there are also Valkyrs... I haven't seen them yet but I'll see if I can find some today before joining Laeron in Stormwind for New Year's eve.
This is our first new year's eve in a very long time so I am slightly intrigued by the celebrations, if any... after all, they did lose their King recently and they still might be a little bit pissed about it. I mean, Greymane is definitely still pissed about it as he keeps stalking Sylvanas like a mad dog. I think they got some sort of a story going on and it is not just about Varian.
But anyway, I shall not dwell on those matters as it is really none of my business who Lord Greymane decides to stalk and when. My business is finding out where Lord Illidan is, and hunt demons and if for that reason I have to stalk Lady Sylvanas Windrunner as well, then I guess it will have to be done.
I am still quite curious about Stormwind's celebrations though. I wonder if it will look anything like this:
Ok, so that picture is a bit old. It was taken when Deathwing destroyed the city. The towers have already been restored to their usual glory and beauty... in human terms, not in elven terms... in elven terms those towers do look like rocks piled up on the top of one another, which nonetheless do serve the original purpose of a wall.
Oh well, I suppose I will find out what happens later on.

Morfindes is on hold for a bit due to this handsome dude rogue - below - called Kyriel.
Kyriel is my rogue. However it is not entirely his fault that Morfindes is on hold. The true reason is that my pc monitor died and I haven't managed to buy a new one yet. I've got a temporary replacement but since it's not a HD monitor, it's kinda slow and I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting to this temp solution... even this poor due is on hold at the moment.

The first thing I found a bit confusing, at first, was the fact that for a city it kind of moves around a lot. First it was in the Eastern Kingdoms, then it was in Northrend and now it is hoovering close to the Broken Isles. No wonder one has to have a Portal to it, one never knows where that city is going to be next! Oh well... I suppose it is what you get when you have a city run by mages.
Anyway, so I went to see Khadgar just outside the Violet citadel and he was a bit worried because he had to bring some bad news to the Leader of the Kirin Tor. Of course when people talk about bad news, I always think the worse; Demons wreaking havoc everywhere, all hope is lost and we are all going to die a terrible death. But it turns out, it was just to tell Lady Jaina Proudmoore that they were going to invite the Horde back into the city.
So cutting this story short, Khadgar made the announcement, everybody took a democratic vote (except for me, they didn't let me vote), majority won, Jaina got pissed and left. Suddenly out of nowhere this Bronzebeard fellow shows up, with a message from his brother Magni - who's currently in Ulduar - and off we go running to see what was that all about.
I mean, the message about the Pillars of creation and titan goddess it was really important for our war against the Legion, but I was impressed by the new looks of Magni Bronzebeard who's now a big walking diamond and couldn't stop thinking how much would, just a tiny little bit of him, be worth at the Auction House? I know I shouldn't be thinking those things but those cheap Wardens didn't give us any pocket money for our daily living. Instead we have to work!
After Ulduar we went to hunt for more information, about the Pillars, in Karazhan and believe me, it is way better to be living at an Inn than in that place. Once that was finished, the mages teleported the city to the Broken Isles, I got to meet up with Kayn again and decided to go to Azsuna. Let's see how that one goes.

Hi, this is me. Morfindes, a Illidari, a Demon hunter.
I have to say that at first I was a bit shocked to find myself being released by the same Warden who happen to have imprisoned us buuuut... I suppose the dire circumstances these people managed to get themselves into kind of dictated this outcome.
Barely did I have the time to unfreeze properly when I was thrown back into the business of killing demons. Almost didn't even have the time to send a text message to my friends Laeron and Thanneth... well didn't really mind not to text Thanneth, because that Blood elf drives me crazy but I did get a message from Laeron saying:
Anyway, we two ended up meeting a little bit later only to find out that Lord Illidan had, not only, not been unfrozen but also he was sort of stolen... My chin would have dropped to the ground if I did not have a Illidari reputation to uphold to. Who on this land would ever think of stealing a cage that size?? A humongous piece of green rock... seriously... the dude is big! And with the wings all spread, it occupies a lot of space. It's like, we got locked up in a tiny studio and he got locked up in a mansion.
The answer was; Gul'dan. In fact, the answer to almost everything that goes terribly wrong in Azeroth as of lately is Gul'dan. And apparently he has had the aid of another Warden named Cordana Felsong. Ok... so I did laugh... or sort of chuckled discretly, since I really didn't want to be thrown back in the cage... at this last bit. All so pious against the alleged evilness of Lord Illidan and they end up all corrupted and in a big mess.
I mean, I am certainly not complaining and I know that if it wasn't for all this mess I'd still be locked up. We would all be locked up. So, maybe it would be fair to say we have been given the opportunity to show that we're not really that bad. Sure we've got our own issues but hey! This is Azeroth, everyone has issues with everyone... except when the Legion comes. Then everyone has issues with everyone and everyone has issues with the Legion.
Well, anyway, I must be on my way to Dalaran and meet up with Khadgar. First impressions: a very weird dude... mage... nice though. Let's see what he wants.
