Naga


SUMMARY
Green is a faction very similar to grey, in the case of its possibilities. Starting the game as the serpentine Naga, based mainly on the Broken Isles but also having enclaves on the shores of Kalimdor, grey has a unique opportunity to strike at a number of different targets early on. Green’s main base lies in Azsuna, where Tidemistress Athissa and Warlord Parjesh lead the Naga on their hunt for the Pillars of Creation..
Aszuna lies on the border of Nightborne territory, near the city of Suramar, as well as the satyr bases of Valsharah. It is unlikely that Green will be in a position to challenge both of these enemies, not at once, hence diplomacy is a key element of green’s early game. There are many potential allies to choose from, however, not all may be interested in entering into an alliance with the Naga.
Green’s main focus should be on conquering the Broken Isles, at least initially, and any ally who can help them lay claim to its rich lands should be courted. You may be forced to choose between allying with the Legion or Nightborne, though a third option may present itself should you choose to return to the embrace of the Old Gods, who are once again stirring on Azeroth.
Green’s territory occupies strategic positions close to the Tomb of Sargaras, hence conflict with your neighbours and other outside powers is inevitable. You should use your unique mobility on the open sea to secure the coasts and island, before setting your sights on a direct invasion of the mainland.
You may encounter problems when dealing with the Trolls, who seek to hunt down Zarjira, the great Naga sea witch, whom they require dead in order to recruit the Murloc Bloodcult, a set of powerful new units that empower Green significantly in the midgame.
Green may also choose to sacrifice Tidemistress Athissa and join their Hatecoil brethren among the Illidari. Should green choose to do so, they will gain a full subpath of Illidari units, and their heroes will be changed and Legion will become Green’s primary enemy..
Green is also the only faction to possess a Pillar of Creation from the start of the game. The Tidestone of Golganeth is a great asset for the Naga, but also is likely to make them a target of other nations who seek the pillars and wish to discover their hidden powers.



FACTION ALLIANCES
These alliances can hardly be considered as full paths as only minor changes are made in most changes, however it is still one of the major features of Green’s gameplay and deserves to be listed.


The Burning Legion
You may choose to pledge allegiance to the demonic overlords of the Burning Legion. Should you do so Warlord Parjesh will become revivable. This path attempts to replicate some of the story of WoW: Legion. Most of the content of this path is locked at the present time and under development, but more will come very soon.

The Old Gods
Showald you fall to the insidious whispers of the Old Gods you will lose Warlord Parjesh but gain Lady Nazjar as hero on a base in Kalimdor. There she will be able to aid her Old God armies as their pour forth from Silithus. This path is designed to replicate some of the Naga we see in WoW: Cataclysm with Ozumath and all sorts of amazing things. Sadly, due to gameplay reasons, Ozumath is locked at the present time.

Nightborne/Highborne

While this path is not directly rooted in lore, it seems reasonable from our perspective, and not terribly outside the realms of possibility that the Naga would seek to realign themselves with their former Night Elven kin. The distinct similarities and history of the Shaldorei and Sindorei are too great to be completely ignored. We also want to improve the 1v1v1 fight on the Broken Isles and this alliance path is an attempt to balance out that fight. Giving Naga the possibility to ally one of their immediate neighbours, or neither would introduce a wildcard element to the game.

Illidari (unavailable yet)
The one, and the only Illidari, are here (kinda). This is a full scale faction path that completely overhauls Green. It transforms Green into an entirely unique solo faction consisting of two main different unit types, the Coilscar Naga and the Ashtongue Draenei. This path, along with new Demon Hunter units, new revivable heroes and some incredible new unique mechanics is designed to fight to bring an end to the Burning Crusade, as well as the Old Gods, and may even prove more powerful than both..

Do we have contact with Queen Azshara ?
I'd also like to know !
A few questions :
Are the alliances available from start ?
I'm pretty sure it will not be for Illidari, but maybe ?
After allying one of thoses 3, will he be able to betray by going solo path a.k.a Illidari ?
If yes, will the previous be able to make another alliance ?
If He goes Illidari will the Pillars still be his main job ? Or just bring doom to the doomlord himself ? :p

I think that's all for now :D

In 7.2, they've actually shown the naga can be exposed to the fel, and there's a group of 'Fel Naga' on the north eastern portion of the Broken Shore. Maybe you could incorporate this into a Legion path?
Honestly, seeing Vashj'ir in KTA would be nice, even if it was just a small 'underwater' instance where you can enter the Abysallmaw to enslave Neptulon/command Ozumat.
Not a very big fan of the allying Nightbourne path, but it could work I suppose. Would be twisting the lore a bit though.

I'm not 100% sure where KTA stands in the lore, and just how much they are bringing in from WOW Legion, but would be interesting to make Illidan's soul prism a building/item that the naga first have to retrieve before they can rescue Illidan.

We would like to avoid mass Alliance. It would have to lock the Night Elves... It may be in future but lets not go that crazy yet.

Ooooooooh damn here comes the fish people! Gonna suck at fighting ships tho :p
That will be most likely one of first balance/bugfix patches. We have no idea how it will play out. I hope that we will see it in test game, so it may be inda Ok soon :)

Do we have contact with Queen Azshara ?
We will, not sure about her as a hero but sure... she will play a role.

I'd also like to know !

After allying one of thoses 3, will he be able to betray by going solo path a.k.a Illidari ?

I think that's all for now :D
No, there is time limit like DMC in LTA
Illidary is too strong to be available early game... there will be a time limit to it as well.
Not intended yet but its easy to make.
Thats the more dificult thing to make but i would like to have it like this... we will see.
The pillars are not neceserily his main focus... he just has an advantage that he owns a pillar from start. And of course, it depends on his bargain with the Legion (or Old Gods). i would like have more comunication in here so yeah, it depends on what the Doomlord will want. :)

I hope green wont be able to screw Nightborn over to much early game if they dont ally.
Suramar has formidable defenses and Naga has no siege so i thing it will be interesting fight but not that unbalanced (i may be hoorribly wrong but... :D ). We will see.

Yeah, it could be :) its brilliant idea. Maybe i will add this even before release but lets not go crazy... and it could also be unfair to other paths... just by adding content to Legion one.
I am not very fan of dungeons (there are like 3 in KTA (Argus, Tomb of Sargeras, Emerald dream)) and making it noninstanced would be too dificult. I think, that we will add a dungeon for Naga at some point (with Ozumath and such). I like WoW: Cata dungeon there, where the player can get the Scepter of Azshara late ron so... it may apear. it propably will at some point since the Naga has no real Capital.
I was a bit afraid of that as well... its 100% custom lore but i dont see it "crazy". We know that Naga allied Blood Elves and grey is basicaly tranforming to Highborne by that alliance. (Losing Elisande and few other small touches)
Well, yeah. Illidari is much more unigue then other "paths" and i would like to have it more then just a research.

Also, as i said few times before. KTAs starts during the TFT timeline, specificaly during the Tirasian invasion to Durotar. Content inspired by later WoW expansions will be mostly locked for some time.

Because you can also say that we can ally them with the Horde because they are also allied with the Horde in Legion.

To be honest, i doubt that Thrall or Garrosh would accept the Illidary... Voljin did it because he was weak warchieff and Sylvanas does not care about the darkness. Also... Alliance has much better relations with the Elves then Horde. If it would be in Eastern Kingdoms and QuelThalas would be a faction, i would not wait a second to give Illidari to Blood elves but this isnt LTA.

1. Voljin was already dead.
2. Sylvanas accepted them because she thought any help would be great.
3. Jaina committed mass genocide against elves, Horde under Sylvanas has better relations with the Elves.

1) yes, but he woudl accept them... i dont really doubt about it.
2) Sylvanas doesnt care of morality. Thats what i meant... The way she thinks is really similar to the way Illidary things.
3) Jaina alloved Sunreavers to leave... they didnt want to. And she did nto commited genocide to them. She put down those who wanted to disobey her order and wanted to stay in Alliance city and were fighting back. Other were just locked in violet hold...
Sylvanas destroyed QuelLithien, attacked QuelDanil and threaten Lorthemar in QuelThalas... she hates elves for what i see.

Quel'Lithien and Quel'Danil don't have any Blood Elves, they are all High Elves there, Sylvanas helped Blood Elves to join the Horde, idk about the whole threatening part though.

They are all children of QuelThalas and High elves never declared war on Forsaken.
Sylvanas demanded Thalassian support for invasion to Northrend (during the Wotlk) and threatened LorThemar that if he will not join his forces with hers, she will order the Forsaken army from Tranquilien to march to "diferent place". And btw. that army is still sitting there doing nothink, even during the second Amani rise during the Cataclysm, it did nothink. Just waited for orders.
Will there be our Glorious Goddess Empress Mighty Queen Azshara?
As i have said... no specific plans for her yet but she will apear in some form for sure.
