1: From Alisaunder:

Blizzard has said that Karazhan was shown for a reason, but why? What are your theories?

Mine revolve around us either learning more about the Lore of Karazhan which while fascinating, only adds one more kitchen sink to the many already in Legion…. OR, Karazhan existing partially in the Twisting Nether will be used to take the fight to the Legion.

 

Karazhan is special because it was once on the nexus of the magic ley lines of Azeroth until Malygos and the blue dragon flight rerouted them to Northrend in Wrath. A tribe of blue dragons is part of Legion, maybe they are trying to restore the ley lines to re-empower Karazhan to… uh… Attract even more demons to a source of great magic?

That makes no sense unless they are out to kill Khadgar which only makes sense if they are following Malygos last orders.

Karazhan is the home of Medivh, and of Khadgar. Karazhan is fractured in time, reliving the past and future. Blizzard has said they don’t plan to do anymore time travel so that’s not it but might be a Scenario that could help explain just who “Khadgar” is. That would be cool.

Karazhan exists partially in the Twisting Nether,  and is home to both Titan constructs and demons of the Burning Legion. Both of which are in Legion. Maybe the third raid of Legion is Karazhan, pushing the fight into the Nether and killing demons for good, or sealing off this portal.

You gotta admit, Khadgar, the guy leading us against the Legion, living in a house with a wide open staircase into the Nether is not what I’d call safe.

The Key to the doors of Karazhan involves a drop from Kael’thas and Lady Vasch who is a naga. Nobody knows who built Karazhan or the strange torture rooms that are the Karazhan Crypts but naga love sources of magic and so do blood elves. How DID those two get pieces of the key anyway?

 

From Alisaunder

Your WoW Money was discussing E-Sports this week and how it differs from real sports like football.

Both require training, skill, determination and good genetics or youth,  but the one thing E-Sports can never have is People.

With People comes the chance of impromptu drama whether from a hockey player starting a fight,  an injury ocurring, or a Nascar driver exploding on a wall.

Does it matter? Do we need that chance of drama or danger to be a “real” sport, or do we only need to wait another 30 years until most of the population has grown up with E-Sports and accepts them as legitimate?
