This picture has nothing to do with the following post. I just like using it.
Tirion Fordring is a lot of things. The Ashbringer. The chosen champion of the Light. The man who chose honor over all else, even when it cost him everything.
However, he's also the worst dad in history.
Now, I'm not talking about how he was willing to give up his wife and son Taelan for the sake of honor (though this is true).
Nor am I talking about how he came out of his exile and stopped living like a hermit, only to indirectly cause the death of his now-grown son at the hands of the Scarlet Crusade (though this is also true).
No, I'm talking about his actual, literal ability as a parent to watch over his kid.
I was in Old Hillsbrad last week taking screenshots and I figured while I was there I'd take one of young Taelan. I went to the inn, sure enough, there's Tirion down below with the rest of the Ashbringer crew. Go upstairs, search around...no Taelan.
Huh, that's weird. I could have sworn he was in the inn.
So I searched the other buildings. Nothing.
Chased the young Renault Mograine, Sally Whitemane and Jimmy Vishas around. Still no Taelan.
Finally, I tried to /target him. Aha! He WAS here, somewhere!
Now where was he...
Tirion? Maybe you should stop fooling around with that crystal and COME GET YOUR KID.
SERIOUSLY TIRION WHAT THE HELL
