Q & A
Would a Talbuk be a plausible mount for an Orc coming from Outland?

Well sure. I assume that most non-Magh'har prefer worgs, but if you get real friendly with the Mag'har, or you tame one yourself, I don't see why not.

Yeah. Thanks! I'd assume so too, with Talbuk's being the usual prey to hunt for the orcs. They have 'relations' with the animal.

Question: Who is Janeiro, and is there any lore behind him? I've seen statues of him not only in Booty Bay, but in a few other goblin places if I remember correctly. Is he some sort of goblin religious leader, or symbol, or is he just another one of blizzards random real-life references? (I know that it is more likely he's just a real life reference, but Janeiro's Point is still there, and ICly there has to be a reason for naming it that. As well as a reason for erecting a huge statue of him.) Maybe we could even make up some of our own lore for him, perhaps it would help explain the whole goblin-priest thing once Cataclysm rolls around.

As the statue is concerned, it's of the good Baron Revilgaz, de facto sovereign of Booty Bay.

Also, I don't believe the name "Janeiro Point" means anything, except as reference to the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Yeah. It's a reference to the giant Jesus statue.
Notice how the Goblin's arms are spread in the such manner?

Anyway, I never found any history over the Baron.
This is about all I got, which I'm sure you've seen.

But I think the idea of making lore around him is pretty neat.

Edit: Looked into it more. It's really just a generic goblin figure. I suppose it represents open arms to all....with gold anyway. So making up lore behind it wouldn't be that bad.

I think it's safe to assume that the statue is a symbol of power and wealth, as well as the open arms of a safe harbor for anyone with some cash.

Arright, so here I am, with major Blood Elf lore gaps on my part.

First! How exactly did the Elves who stayed in Quel'thalas start using the Fel?

Second! When exactly was Silvermoon rebuilt - be Kael'thas departure from Quel'thalas, or during his absence?

*fail*

They started using Fel when Rommath was sent back by Kael'thas from Outland to teach them how to harness this new power, it was shortly after that they rebuilt Silvermoon, with the help of the bloodmagi and the Fel magicks.

So, a question about faith, Divine magic, and how it works in CotH.

I'll try to be as clear as I can. ^_^;;

When a mage stops using magic for a while, they suffer withdrawl, etc, etc. Because it's such a learned art, even if they leave it alone for a time, a mage could, conceivably, come back to the study of it and start casting again, right?

Priests (and paladins, right?) use magic through their own faith and force of will. If one of them stops using magic, it's usually because of a crisis for faith, or a loss of belief or will.

Again, this is to the best of my understanding.

So, then, would it be possible for a divine caster (read: priests or paladins) to be able to 'come back to the fold' so to speak? ...To find a way to be able to use their magics again?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this. ^_^

Cheers,

Yes, I have a Companion Cube. It came with the software I use to do my job. Makes you wonder about their expectations for user's mental health, doesn't it?

If a Priest loses faith, they have to regain it somehow. Remember that their magic comes from their own faith in something more (Or in themselves, for the darker side of the Divine). Paladins who fall must atone for their sins in a meaningful and often challenging way. Perhaps a quest to kill some deadly evil or some kind of self-sacrificing pilgrimage and asceticism brings the Light back to them. Where a Priest needs only to believe again, a Paladin has to actually gain forgiveness from an arbitrary godly force.

Ah, nifty.

Thanks a bunch for that, Kaghuros. Especially on the paladin correction.

Makes them sorta interesting, doesn't it? I'll have to look more into the paladin's connection with the Light, re: what sort of relationship it is.

Thanks again,

I got one for you all. Would a troll tusk grow back, if broken off?

If it can't regrow naturally, would there be any sort of brew/potion/magic capable of doing it?

So. Orc with protruding horns. Can old age and long exposure to fel justify that? I've heard that all Shadowmoon Orcs except Zuluhed had already deformed into something different, like fel orcs. I was thinking, horns are a step before being a fel orc. Sekh is an old orc practicing Fel since his Om'riggor. You think horns would be justified?

Was thinking about Felheart Horns but yeah, was also thinking of the IC implications of it. So I'm not sure.
