I assume “Alex” is Afrasiabi?

The first patch trailer was Shadow of the Necropolis, which was very narrative=driven.

Aside from the small typo, was it really the first patch trailer? I remember seeing a trailer for the Zul’gurub patch before that (and no, I don’t mean the Cataclysm one).

Also, I’m a big fan of the cinematics in wow, particularily recently. The antorus cinematic is brillant. So is the Stormheim one.

The work of this wow team is just amazing, and I think together with Christie Golden the team and Terran Gregory, they can rise wow storytelling to a very new level. I’m hyped for any cinematic right now, because even a story like “the horde leaders sit at a table, gallywix tells sylvanas about azerite” is told in a manner by them, that I never would have thought to be that intense and full-of-lore.
Just my 2 cents to that matter, really looking forward to BfA.

It all began with Wrathgate. Good times.

Couldn’t have said it better. As far as I know, Christie wasn’t working with them for any of the already released cinematics, right? (Except maybe the azerite one that was released recently)?

The official WoW youtube isn’t that organized, but it seems the 1.11 cinematic is the earliest they’re officially featuring. However I did find a Zul’Gurub trailer on a different channel.

She was involved with the Silithus/faction Azerite cinematics, yes. Dunno about any before then.

Its so nice seeing how WoW has evolved. Both in-game and cinematic-wise.

I’m very salty. That Draenei male goatee Akama has used to look cool until they added a moustache to it on WotLK and now on the HD models too.

So that’s why characters in intro cinematics looks like “memes” from imageboards? And uglier than ingame cinematics?

My god, this is SO FAT…
