i take a great issue with how Medivh is speculated on in this article. That he could see the future is not in doubt. what he intended to change in that future and his motives, I believe are far less sinister then what is being offered here. fist look at who he is. he is hands down the greatest mortal magic user ever, period. his body was the incubator of the spirit of the greatest warrior of the titans, and the most evil. he lived in a ancient tower that had the ability to show visions of the past and the future and the present as if they were overlapping wormholes, you were actually there in present and the "vision". this man had every possible advantage and power the world could offer him. to say he could be arrogant and bullish is an understatement. this does not change the fact that he is always correct. there is much to debate about what he wsa trying to do, what he did know and what he didn't, but im sure of this. look at his character, in his heart he is a man that was in thrall from the moment of his conception. it was his mothers love and her last sacrifice of her magic that gave him a second birth. now free of the titan, the true man is revealed. he is still tainted by the evil but he is not evil any longer. knowing what was coming, he went to the the three powers of the time. thrall and Terenas and mal'furion. 2 followed him one didn't. would you force someone aginst their will to do you bidding? even if you know that if they dont the cost in blood will be monumental. do you think that after spending his entire life enslaved to that titan, that he would dare do that to another? even showing them what he knew, would that not still be taking their choice away from them? for a man that is forever tainted with the evil of that titan, i think he swore in his heart to never force anything on anyone ever again. that choice, right or wrong, was his goal. hopeing that they would make the choice for survival. look what happened as a result. now imagine what if Terenas had listened. the grand alliance would have been in retreat when the scourge began. the undead would have had no champion. the entire events of the third war would have played out wholly differently. the horde night elves, humans, would have been ready to deal with the world tree and the well when Kt would have eventually showed up, with far weaker forces as most of the humans having fled when they were supposed to had not become fodder for the scourge. the undead would have been wiped out with the collective might of the combined armies. then with Medivh spurring them on to northrend, they would have slaughtered the nacient scourge and destroyed the lich king forever because his forces would be so small to have them run mindless would have been a manageable thing then. Medivh wanted to stop the future he saw without makeing it one that he crafted for himself. he wanted a future where the people chose to make it what they wanted.
