[GAme THEoRy] Blizzard's been pushing Nathanos in our faces because they're planning on him leading the Forsaken after they inevitably kill Sylvanus

I want to clarify that I don't want them to kill Sylvanas, and I'll be very annoyed if/when it happens, but I'm sure they're going to do it at some point. I assume in this scenario that either Saurfang or Baine Bloodhoof will become Warchief.

Edit: Fixed Sylvanas' name.

Two armies, which you'll get to lead into that very same city in several weeks when you catch up on that rep grind. When you first meet Vanthir you're supposed to discretely inform him that you're on the same side. At the same time, while Vanthir is casually hanging around there's nightborne and horde...
