Would have been nice if the people that got advanced copies of these released their ‘content’ (looking at you wowhead and nobbel) today when its publicly available to everyone instead of before when people cant get the info anywhere else.

I thought they would release some time after the CE owners got their physical one. This feels weird.

Unfortunate the night elf lore is in this book and not actually presented in the pre-patch event.

IMO they release this now cause of the community backlash….

I won’t read it.

Just can’t. I really hate the lore and it makes me unconfortable. It even haunts me in my dreamy and makes me cry since a few days.
Probably skipping the whole expansion (or WoW itself) if nothing great is hinted to happen to NEs.
Blizz has truely lost me here and I play since classic beta. Allways been a NE, allways will, but this is just to much to accept, too much to bear if there is no extremely big story compensation coming to fix how NEs are.

Really tired of negativity leading these comments ALL the time. You’re entitled to feel any way but you sound like a broken recording. I can’t wait to read these all the way through. Thank you for sharing them.

We were given a time when to release it by Blizzard. A large number of streamers/youtubers also received copies to unbox. For whatever reason, they chose not to focus on the lore in the unboxing coverage, but there could have been 10+ creators making coverage about the story.

It’s a fine book and Tyrande does a 180 from how she was presented in game, it’s very sad especially if you are a night elf fan. But pretty much the rest of it for me as well. Night elves lose so much and you have to read this book to find out what some of them were even doing during the events. They they just get forgotten immediately after and have no story in BfA so far, you even turn in the final quest to Anduin. Hopefully we get some news about night elves in a later patch at least…

You are not the only one. This is so painful to read. We already know the main events. All that remains are the details and they are mostly about … things which we are not going to like.

I know, I have red Percs summery. But it is not about how Tyrande is portraited but how essentially now everything I loved about Nes have been destroyed, chewd and spat on. With no hope or hint of anything but being forgotten the same way as Worgens have been or every other race beside humans.r
r
Thing is, every other race was introduced that way they are now, NEs have not been. They have had the most beautyfull zone and atmosphere and pretty much all is gone now. r
Just look at the NEs Zones. All of them were destroyed in Cata and now the last one was destroyed now. I just can’t play it down anymore. Blizzard really has lost my trust and it is a shame, I grew up with WoW, grew up with “being” a NE. I play on a roleplay server since release for 13 years. Allways been a NE. It is just as if Blizz said to me: “screw you and your feelings, We don’t want you anymore”.

I’ve heard of people getting upset in the past because things didn’t follow their headcanon (wrathion), but these last few weeks have been absolutely ridiculous.

Yep, and they have really been crapping on night elves since Cata to advance the horde and human story while night elves get none of their own, they are just presented as helpless victims at every turn. The worst part about all this is we hear nothing from the night elves after this event, that was just used to make Suarfang feel bad and get Anduin to attack undercity, nothing to advance the night elves. It would be fine if we could fight for something, but we just have to wait until Blizzard writes something for the night elves, which in the beta is just not there at all. r
r
Teldrassil was my introduction to wow and was always my favorite starting zone, and I’m definitely with you on feeling slighted yet again after years of saying “maybe next patch, maybe next expansion”. Hard to be motivated to play or even care anymore.

I can’t even imagine the night elves without their homeland/forest. Their unique features are gone and they are empty. It doesn’t matter if blizz says that some of them escaped. The things that defined the race are almost gone to a degree that they are a dead race now.

Pity it’s only available as a PDF and not any e-book format which I could just chuck on my e-reader for offline reading with more comfort than a computer screen.

r
Yes and nobody seems to care… Horde players are crying since weeks for being portraited evil. Get assured by Blizz everything will be fine, but not a single word for the NE players. Nothing. r
Nobody even seem to ask or is interested in it. Which is even more dishearting because it shows Blizzard that they don’t even need to come up with something.r
r
Really I tried to remain positive… I really did but I can’t anymore. Blizzard has just broken my heart deeply here and have not yet made a single afford, not a single word to assure me it will be mended. r
r
Just crying again… great.

I can read pdfs on my Amazon Kindle. There are lots of software programs that can convert between e-book formats. Calibre is popular, free, and easy to use.

I feel the same (including you Thieme), I fear it was all just a reason to have something to worry about. I wait and see… but the record doesn’t really speak in for Blizzard favor.r
But Metzen asked me to be patient… well… why can’t you just come back? (well tbh he wasn’t too good about NE either)
