If you let yourself think about it, Messenger to the Feralfen and it’s lead-ins are some of the most disturbing quests in the game.  “We need to talk to these people and share our message of love and hope, so go steal some of their sacred religious objects, kill any who get in your way, and then impersonate their god.”  The Forsaken do some pretty freakish things, but at least they know darn well how evil they are; the Draenei pull crap like this and think they’re doing the Light’s work.


  1. There’s a reason why 90% of the members of their race were easily seduced by demons…. 😀

  2. Hey, they may be corrupt and all……. but they pay well enough! As for the seduced by demons thing, don’t tell Morgatha. 😛

    • Ooh, no, best not to give Morgatha any ideas!

      • This is Morgatha we’re talking about. I’m sure she’s had plenty of ideas already!

  3. See, I’ve always had issue with the Kalu’ak quest Planning for the Future “We want you to abduct all the children in this village so we can commit genocide on their parents and raise their orphaned children according to our beliefs.”

    • The way the Kalu’ak figured, one side was going to wipe out the other ANYWAY. Don’t forget that the Kalu’ak town was under seige from the wolvar, and that the walruses pretty universally seemed to feel that peace wasn’t possible. While probably still not the best idea, the Kalu’ak seemed to reason that at least this way there would be some wolvar survivors. Still serious morality issues. But fewer than if the kids had been killed with their parents, or left to starve. I do wish we’d had the chance to see what happened to those kids, though. The way the daily was set up, the kids pretty much seemed to disappear into thin air. While the wolfar orphan from Children’s Week helped a bit, it was hardly enough.

      • Actually, it’s a in one of the patch notes… Wolvar Pups are a Kalu’ak delicacy.
