being turned into can be seen as being cursed by the old gods. Regular people wouldnt see a boon from the old gods as anything but a Curse.

Which is ironic, since the old gods are responsible for everyone being made of flesh due to the "curse of the flesh" places on the titan constructs that almost everyone originated from on azeroth (except the insect races and trolls)

Turned into a naga: yes
Cursed by the old gods: no.

What happened was that when her plan to help the evil titan Sargeras, lord of the Burning Legion was foiled by Malfurion, Tyrannde, and Illidan, the portal she was creating for the titan within the Well of Eternity, shattered with such great force, it nearly tore all of Azeroth asunder. As her land, her followers, and she sunk into the briny depths, she prayed to the Old Gods for salvation. In return, they granted her and her people a form in which they could survive the depths. Alas, they became the naga.

This was known as the great sundering. The maelstrom in the sea was where the Well of Eternity stood. And the only land that was left were the two continents of The Eastern Kingdoms, and Kalimdor.

Oh my god, if they put Azshara in a Cata patch (WHICH THEY BETTER) They should go off of this. This is just unbeliveable, amazing, and just, amazing.

hell no Azshara deserves her own Expansion!

She does appear in Cata though.

True, true... It should be: Conquest of Azshara. Like how Outland had it's own thing, with Illidan, the Maelstrom should be the new outland, and instead of Kil'jaeden, or Illidan I guess, it would be Azshara.

Exactly! expect for the fact that the Maelstorm is already appearing in Cata (I have no idea why though but iv seen the model or zone or whatever you want to call it) and no im not in Alpha in case your wondering after that.

all the stuff under the Maelstorm is still fair game for an expansion though.

Yeah, there's still A LOT of stuff in the Maelstrom. Nazjatar, the Makura place, all that.

YES and you could have uhh Tel'abim, Zandalar and Plunder Isle be above sea level new zones and you could visit what's left of Kezan after Cata.

but she hasnt appeared in WoW (as a boss) so far so i think your mistaking Queen Azshara for her loyal servant Lady Vashj

I think the size is a little off, unless you're assuming she can take on any size.

And she won't be appearing on Cataclysm. She'll just be being mentioned more.

I came back to add just a few more words. I feel that my critic, although correct, doesn't express how much I love this work.

Not only you're easily the best painter around DA (well, at least you're my favourite) but you manage to catch on the epic scale of the moments you portray. Azshara is easily one of my favourite villains.

I was wondering: have you tried to apply to Blizzard as a concept artist?
