Have another one for the list, they found Mankirk's wife! Decimator Olgra is in Maldraxxus where she's killing blood lice. Her of her task she says "Their screams aren't as satisfying as quillboar, but they'll do." Mankrik would be at peace knowing that even in death his sweetheart is doing what she loves.
No! I had no idea she had died in Legion, one of my favorite characters from Pandaria along with Sully the Pickle. At least now, I know her fate.
Now can Admiral Taylor get some love? We quested with him through cata to WoD and he's killed off only to be made a ghostly follower, not even brought back as a DK for Nazgrim's rivalry, I would seriously love if he was made a Kyrian aspirant or Necrolord. Who knows where some of our favorite heroes have ended up, but it's apparent their are more zones than the four we're introduced into.
*looks at events of BfA*Not in vain, my ass! This is absurd! She should still be alive, goddamn it! Vanessa Vancleef should be dead, not her!
It's a whole world, the player character isn't going to be present for the death of every named character. It's not like she died like Poochie, on the way back to her home planet, her death was part of a quest chain. Frankly, there probably should be some named npcs that died completely offscreen without player characters being involved in any way. Maybe Draka is on her first body in the afterlife. Maybe Kearnen is trying that form out for now, with the possibility of going back to human(oid) later.
