Thread: Wispers of Oblivion LotV Campaign Prologue

    I'm excited for the campaign, particularly because of the high tech goodies.
    I'm really curious how they are going to do army customization for protoss....terran may have been a bit overboard with what units you can make, and zerg very constrictive (having to choose between broodlord and viper pissed me off for example).

    so far its a choice of which tribe version of a unit is brought in- blink zealots or....cleaving zealots? blink stalker or steamplow with dragoon, maybe heavy specialist voidrays or mobile scouts (so long as scouts can handle taking down armored units well too).....attack on the move pheonix or....aoe corsairs? I'm gonna be bothered if u have to choose between the suicide orbs or colossus.

    Yeah, I was hinging too much on the assumption that that thing (if it really is Amon) being "re(a)d all over" was going to be enough to carry it cos otherwise it'd be too clunky if I had to spell it out (the "what's black and white..." part not really necessary cos I'm alluding to the original joke not making the original joke) and it'd not make much sense as you said (that thing that could be Amon not having any white on it). Huh, I guess that's why I'd make for a crappy comedian...

    How do you know the "Whispers of Oblivion" campaign is not better than the trailer when the campaign itself hasn't even come out yet?

    Yes, that's right! That is indeed ME on the right.

    I looks too much like a protoss for it to be amon (...i think) Is it possible that its another protoss (not taldarim, but a different tribe) who has sided with amon?

    That's what I'm thinking, partly because the character model seems to have been thrown together rather than being the product of several conceptual stages, like the other characters. I'm thinking it's a Tal'Darim leader who is close to Amon Amarth himself. But it's uncanny how closely he resembles the Amon model from HotS.

    Amon Amarth like this :



    But anyways, I was thinking dark archon, Ulrezaj?

    Little did Artanis and company know they were up against the God of Death Metal himself.

    The Protoss never stood a chance. But Jim knows how to fight metal... with metal.

    Warcraft III had "NPC races" like the naga and Forsaken. I hope the protoss factions are like this. I'd like to face an extremist Dark Templar faction, and a Tal'darim faction, and maybe a Judicator faction...

    I wonder if Ulrezaj and the Guardians of the Xel'Naga Temple of Shakuras will be back.

    Because that's what they always do isn't it? Blizzard's trailers are amazing but when it comes to their games, they're always let down. Even Warlords of Draenor had an amazing trailer but it's probably one of their most underwhelming expansions.

    I think Blizzard should become a trailer company.

    There's a smorgus board of bad things that were in warlords: horrid launch day, aggravating gearing system (to be ready for raid content), but it was not a "let down". great quests, storyline, better pvp, fun dungeons, garrisons- great passtime.
