Matthew Rossi at WoW Insider: You read that right. Not Warchief of the Horde, no, not even on a drunken dare would I suggest that because Shandris is frankly too cool an underused character to be saddled with something that ridiculous. No, what I want is for the Alliance to create a Dux Bellorum, and I want the job to go to Shandris.
At this stage, with the losses of the Cataclysm and the looming war, I think it’s fair to say that it’s time for Shandris to step forward. She’s been (in my opinion) criminally underused and kept for far too long in Tyrande’s shadow. This is a woman with over ten thousand years of military experience, and it is long past time for someone with that kind of acumen to step forward and lead armies in the coming conflict.
I don’t know why Shandris has lain fallow for so long. It could be due to her gender, or because she’s a night elf and night elves only get to do anything in the game if they’re insane or it’s 10,000 years ago. [...] She’s served her people in war since the War of the Ancients (taking up bow and armor while not even physically adult enough to wear the armor yet) and has millennia of experience.
This is not a character who should be stuck at Feathermoon Stronghold protecting the coast of Feralas – she should be at the least leading troops into battle where the battle is, and the battle is going to Pandaria, so that’s where Shandris needs to be. This is the greatest archer in the world, people. This is someone who can shoot a bow better than Vashj, better than Alleria, better than Sylvanas, there is literally no one who is as good with a bow as Shandris Feathermoon.. . . Read full article
