Power of Transmog: Blood Knight

Blood Knights, elite members of Silvermoon army. By some accounts the very backbone of Thalassian forces that keep the undead from overwhelming Quel'Thalas. Most of the Blood Knights were members of Royal Guard. And most of them were driven by vengeance, retribution, and sense of justice into manipulating the light after what Arthas did to their homeland. These Paladins knew no remorse, took no pity, and gave no quarter. They were as merciless and ruthless as they could get. And everything they ever did, was always for their homeland, for glory of Quel'Thalas.

Jaina Proudmoore and her Quest for Vengeance

It is ludicrous when you think about it. You have a neutral city such as Dalaran in which two factions reside that openly hate each other and you expect these two faction not to play tricks, spy, obstruct and sabotage the work of their enemy. That is naive. Sunreavers hate Silver Convenant, and Silver Convenant hates Sunreavers. Silver Convenant cannot understand why Sunreavers work with the Horde, they have them for traitors of their people. While Sunreavers feel the members of Silver Convenant are the real traitors. Joining hands with the same people that tried to kill their Prince, the people that drove Kael'thas in making pact with Illidan. And Sunreavers feel that members of Silver Convenant do not respect the fallen, as they still call themself High Elves, when all the rest took the name of Blood Elves, in honor of those who died during Arthas's invasion of Quel'thalas.

Jaina Proudmoore and War in Kalimdor

We know that just before the Cataclysm, Garrosh launched attack on Ashenvale. And we are told, that Alliance, invaded Barrens in hopes to relieve the Northern front opened in Ashenvale. Yet, it is not the Alliance forces we see in Barrens. There are no troops wearing emblems of golden lion on a blue field. All the "Alliance" soldiers in Barrens are wearing Theramore tabards. They are wearing the golden anchor on a field of white. The invaders of Barrens are, until now neutral and always arguing for peace, military forces of Theramore. Military forces under direct command of Jaina.

Neutrality of Jaina Proudmoore

It is a peculiar apple, the daughter of Kul Tiras's former Lord Admiral. Jaina's path in politics started only after she left Arthas at the gates of Stratholme. One might even say that her inability to persuade Arthas otherwise, drove him to madness at the end. The demise of Kael'thas and her father Daelin Proudmoore could also be attributed to Jaina. Yet we shall stay away from Jaina's influence on the men in her life. At least for now.

Expansions and World of Warcraft

What makes expansion great? What is the thing that makes a feature so popular for awhile and then dwindle? And what makes us look to the past expansions with the rose-tinted glasses and reminisce as time goes by?

Warchiefs, Politics, and Queen

Or so we thought the things would go. We knew the new Warchief is on his way, biding his time as the adventurers ever vanderlust headed for Siege of Orgrimmar. Where they would aid the combined but ever divided might of the Alliance and the Horde. I expected Garrosh to die, but for now let us focus on his successor, Chieftain of the Darkspear Trolls, Vol'jin.

Hello, World

An appropriate title for someone only starting the blog. Hello World. Pure, simple, and efficient. The greeting that most IT students come across when they first start to learn one of the many computer languages.

Now, that I flattered my own genius it might be a good time to explain what this thing is supposed to be. As the name of the site says, this will be about my thoughts. I envision this blog as pure and simple thoughts, musings, long-winded posts, and arguments about computer games, books, and whatever else piques my interest at the given moment.

I can only hope this project of mine bears fruits of success.
