First, there were rumours, mere whispers. The Horde would be the aggressors in the new expansion. Teldrassil would be set on fire, and the Alliance would attack Undercity. Then came the pre-patch, and with it, the War of the Thorns, Chapter 1. A questline that felt like it ended in the middle of nowhere. A growing dread of cartoonishly bad story-telling. Lacklustre world quests with equally lacklustre rewards. And bugs. Oh, so, so many bugs.
But Chapter 2 of the War of the Thorns was on its way. Chapter 2 would save us. Chapter 2 would tell us who burns the tree.
