Welcome back to Part II of our Best Wishes for 2020! Picking up where we left off…

We start with what we wish for Taelia Fordragon. Pretty much we’re all looking forward to her meeting her father.

Next we look at Calia Menethil, who some still speculate to be Taelia’s mother. We talk about her ability to lead the Forsaken, and Nick fixates back on her relationship with Derek Proudmoore.

Also central to that relationship with Calia and Derek is Lillian Voss, as the three of them seem poised to rule the Forsaken as a triumvirate. We discuss whether that’s a viable option for the undead going forward.

Nick has some fun speculating about how Thrall may spend his time in Orgrimmar, and comes up with a sad story for him, and also an amazing dad joke.

Next we consider what we want for Baine and Mayla. Nick also brings in Lor’themar and Thalyssra and Katie is frustrated by how he’s coupling everyone off, but Nick points out that Blizzard seems to be putting these suggestions in game, and he thinks there may be a reason for that, given how the power of love can relate to death, and maybe all these relationships will be important in Shadowlands. Katie mentions that she wants Suramar as a main capital city hub for the Horde.

Katie gets excited about what to wish for Gazlowe. Nick complains about his architectural style.

Next we get into Wrathion. Nick accurately predicted his new model in 2019. We are excited to see him return.

We look at the Dragon Aspects in aggregate. Nick says he wants them to go away although he doubts they will. Katie is excited to see more of them.

Next, we consider Azeroth’s state. We are concerned that we don’t know how she’s going to come out of Battle for Azeroth, as her wounds seem to be an ongoing issue, and it seems wrong to head to another plane of existence while she is still suffering.

We also examine Magni and his role as speaker, and where he should go in 2020.

Finally, we look at the absent Khadgar, and wonder if he will come back in Shadowlands. We also debate whether Medivh is dead or alive and if he would be in the Shadowlands.
