I only settle for the best.
This is all I want for Christmas
also the hobbit has the worst raid party make-up ever. everyone is a warrior except like two rogues one of whom is a big noob and the only mage isn’t even a healer
legolas is like that lvl 100 dude that comes along and steals all your kills and then leaves
To the idiot feminist who is whining about there being no lead female characters/leaders in Warlords of Draenor…
This is Yrel. You really should research before you make yourself look like an idiot.
She’s hot and awesome, and even if she weren’t in the game I wouldn’t whine about it. Nobody cares. It’s a game.
oh boy, if only i had done my research
like i was about to explain the dismal state of gender portrayals in wow and it’s terrible, terrible fandom, what with all the rampant fridging and complete fucking irrelevance and constant jokes that are solely based on the premise that misgendering is Funny, but now i dont think i can seeing as warlords of draenor is confirmed to have
one major female character
boy howdy, she might even fight and stuff
this more than makes up for all the women in wow who are brutalized to the point where the player literally has to ‘put them down’, written so that they cannot possibly exist without X male character’s presence, consistently having nearly every decision they make put in scare quotes by the narrative, only allowed into the Main Storyline as a result of being horribly victimized and even then only as a quote unquote Villainous Bitch, subject to sexual assault for no reason other than proving that the bad guy is Evil, conspicuously absent, portrayed as a walking cautionary tale against things like agency and having sex, conspicuously absent, written as if passing from the influence of one male character to another is the same thing as character development (and being thrown under the bus when they actually do things on their own), conspicuously absent, actually naaru or something, unable to walk three steps without being involved with either rape or mind control, introduced as an extension for X Important Dude Character than conveniently impregnated and forgotten, killed off to provide X Important Dude Character with vital manpain, reduced to literal bargaining chips, and conspicuously absent! never mind that all we know about her is… her name, that she’s ‘hot’, and the fact that she’s modeled after a historical figure who’s sort of infamous for being brutally murdered. but hey, at least martyrdom is preferable to complete fucking nonexistence ?
woop there it is
