It’s World Book Night tonight and good friend and thoroughly nice chap Andy Miller has just written a book called The Year of Reading Dangerously. As I owe him one big time I offered to paint whatever he wanted and this is what he came up with…
Please could you paint Dan Brown sinking to his knees in despair after being humiliated in a game of crazy golf by Herman Melville, author of ‘Moby-Dick’, much to the appreciation of a crowd of spectators including Jane Austen, T.S. Eliot, William Shakespeare and Michel Houellebecq.
okay serious question can someone explain the lore behind the SoO raid because i don’t exactly know what’s going on in here and i missed the entire expansion leading up to this so i’m fairly confused right now
something something garrosh got corrupted by the sha? and is bad and everyone is fighting him now?
Patch 5.0 - Hey, welcome to Pandaria! There’s this evil stuff called the Sha that feeds off of bad vibes.
5.1 - Alliance/Horde: Alright, lets get settled in for real now.
5.2 - Jaina: Oh look, a giant bell that would make any army invincible. Lets put it someplace no one ever goes: Darnassus.
Blood Elves: *stealth in, steal bell, stealth back through Dalaran*
Jaina casually strolls through Dalaran incinerating and imprisoning every blood elf in sight. Very controversial, basically the Sylvanas of the Alliance now.
Varian: B-b-but they could be our allies!
Jaina: Stop being such a little bitch.
Garrosh:Hey, lets ring our new bell! **gong** **all of his forces turn into sha-monsters**
Anduin: I have to destroy that bell! *hits it with a mallet, gets crushed beneath it, nearly dies*
Something something Thunder King something something obligatory troll patch for the expansion
5.3 - Vol’jin is finally sick of getting kicked around. Stages bi-factional revolt on Garrosh. Dailies.
5.4 - Garrosh is fully corrupted by the Sha at this point, destroys the Veil. SoO.
5.2 sounded pretty awesome, was it awesome? pls tell me it was awesome :(
ty for TL;DRing it for me
Q:Garrosh went roid rage on Pandaria and took the Heart of Y-something from under the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, totally destroying it and corrupting him, since old gods corrupt stuff. The Korkron are like Garrosh fangirls that defend him at all costs and patrol every Horde capital city right now. SoO is pretty much going into Org, killing Garrosh fangirls, and knocking him unconscious so that he can still make WoD.
so it’s essentially setting the stage for the next expansion, which is super heavy alliance-lore-focused, which is why it’s named after tribes of orcs and everything super super horde-y?
