Diamond Eyes

Okay, I stole the title from the latest Deftones album.  But it fits.  A little.  You’ll see.

I, of course, read Chawa’s post “Shattering Cairne“.  And I know how Pacheco feels about Cairne Bloodhoof‘s departure from the game.  And I also stumbled this post from Tam at Righteous Orbs.  (It’s a gooder!)

Essentially, most people seem kind of sad to see Cairne gone.  Or at least respected the character that Cairne was.

Now, if you read Christie Golden‘s book, “The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm“, you’d know exactly what happened to Cairne.  You may have even been like me, where you ended up liking Cairne even more after reading the book.  Also from the book, you would know the fate of Magni Bronzebeard – hence the title.  That said, similar to Cairne’s fate, the info could probably have been found elsewhere before the 4.0.3a patch.  Anyway, I even grew to like Magni a little bit after reading The Shattering.

But, I haven’t quite seen the same reaction to his fate that I’ve seen towards Cairne.  Admittedly, I haven’t looked that hard…but it has made me wonder: 

Has there been as much sorrow on the Alliance side? 

Are they as sad to see Magni go as much as we Horde were to see Cairne go?
