Sounds like either Alex Afrasiabi told too much, indicating more stuff about Sylvanas is going to come to light, or that he didn’t tell anyone else on his team that she did in fact order the blight at the wrathgate.

It would make sense that she engineered the plague as a means to create more forsaken and that Varimathras and Putress betrayed her. r
Her suicide attempt is kind of a heavy wrench in any kind of attempt at integrating that in some kind of extremely long con, though.r
r
I wonder how they are going to wriggle out of that one, or if they are just going to use a cop out.

I think it was mainly created as a weapon against the Lich King as her “long term” plan and it was just unleashed by Putress at the Wrathgate. In fact, it may have even been under her orders as a “I don’t care what it takes kill him” sort of thing, and then after it failed to kill him and the Alliance got angry she used him as a scapegoat and sent us to kill off the people who could say “Hey man, she told us to”. After the Lich King’s defeat she probably didn’t really care at the time, seeing as that particular variety of the plague also killed the undead and didn’t raise them as Forsaken at all.r
r
Once he was defeated, she attempted to kill herself but upon finding out what awaits on the other side decided she’d rather not deal with that and now that she realizes she’s going to be forced to live out a cursed existence decides that if she’s stuck living, she better make sure her people survive too otherwise she really does have no purpose. This is when she starts raising the dead as Forsaken instead of just using her “kill all” plague on everything instead. If you look at it in those terms, both the new information and the old reconcile quite nicely. r
r
Basically the plague was made as a catch all to kill the Lich King no matter what, her mission is over so she kills herself, realizes hell isn’t as great as it seems, and decides that if she has to live as a ruler…well, you need people to rule over.

This is a mess. They seem to just be making up the story on the spot.

They kind of have to now, I think. They built Sargeras up to be the ultimate big bad of the Warcraft universe, behind just about everything leading up to this point – the Horde, the Scourge, so on – with the Lich King and (to a degree) Illidan as proxy antagonists, and the Old Gods as kind of a side quest. Now Sargeras is more or less out of the way, they’re like “well, crap, what now?”

My wish now is what it has always been; that people will remember that before Sylvanas was the Banshee Queen she was the Ranger-General. To a very great extent Arthas twisted her into what she is. Her destiny was to die her hero’s death on those poisoned fields outside Silvermoon. The question as to how the woman (she elf?) she was became the villain she seems now to be, and how that might relate to the very unlikely betrayals of risen night elves on Darkshore, is a story line I would be very interested in hearing more about. What we’re being put through now is frustrating and maddening, but it might end up being a really good story. As a lot of other people have said, we’re only on chapter three of what might be a very long, satisfying book. Maybe.
