Death Knight Moral Issues
I don't want to give out all the cool parts of the death knight starting area. But at the same time I think people need to be aware of something.

Unless the quests change radically, I won't be rolling a death knight in the expansion.

The problem is that the quests are unambiguously evil. And you have no option to make moral choices. What I'm talking about here isn't the usual Warcraft. You are forced to steal, murder, and torture, and it is presented as such. The quest text goes out of it's way to make sure you don't misunderstand what's going on.

There were several quests last night in beta where I almost decided not to continue. Specifically -

- The quest where I am forced to murder civilians who don't fight back.
- The quest where I am forced to torture people to extract information.
- The quest where I am forced to murder my unarmed friend.

I understand that it's called World of *Warcraft*. And I understand that for the last 3.5 years I've been slaughtering creatures who did nothing other than carry loot I wanted. But this seems to have been designed with the sole intent of making sure I'm evil. Well....... I'm not evil. If the bridge will explode if I don't torture someone, then the bridge will explode. If the mission fails because I won't murder civilians who don't fight back, then the mission will fail.

The problem with the current DK quests is that I'm not given that choice. If you want a death knight you *must* murder and torture people, and it will be presented as murder and torture. Thus, I won't be rolling a death knight unless some serious changes are made.

 



死亡骑士的道德话题

我不想在此分享死亡骑士新手区的所有酷点子,它们实在太棒了。但是,同时我必须提醒人们注意一些地方。

除非那些任务彻底改变,否则我不打算在资料片选择一个死亡骑士。

关键的问题在于那些任务确定无疑地邪恶无比,而你却没有机会做出一个道德上的选择。我在这里说的是并不是通常意义上的“Warcraft”。你别无选择地被强迫去偷窃、谋杀、拷打、诸如此类,而这一切皆出于你手。而任务文本则使你确定无疑地知道将会发生什么。

这是一些我昨天晚上在测试服务器上遇到的任务,它们几乎使我决定不再继续做一个死亡骑士。例如:

- 某个任务迫使我去谋杀一些不会反抗的市民
- 某个任务迫使我拷打他人来获取信息
- 某个任务迫使我杀害我的一位手无寸铁的朋友

我明白这是一个叫做World of “Warcraft”的游戏。我也明白在过去的三年半时间里我屠杀了许多无辜的生物,从他们的尸体上获取我想要的东西。但是那些死亡骑士的新手任务看起来设定的唯一目的就是确定我是个人渣......

但是我不是。

如果我不拷打他人会使的一座桥炸掉,那么那座桥就炸掉好了。如果我不杀死一些不会反抗的市民会使得任务失败,那么任务就失败好了。

问题的关键在于死亡骑士的任务没有给我那些选择。如果你想成为一位死亡骑士,你就必须谋杀和拷打。

因此,除非那些任务能够做出一些明显的改变,否则我不打算在资料片选择一个死亡骑士。



第八页blz斑竹发出蓝贴解释,其中引用了一个玩家的话。



Q u o t e:
The premise of the death knight starting quests is that you're still an agent of the Scourge, and I get the impression that the Lich King doesn't share our idea of morality; however, if you're uncomfortable playing a death knight, then that is completely your choice not to play one.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I'd have to agree with this. The idea is not to roll a Death Knight and immediately have the ability to choose what kind of work you do in the world. When first entering the world you quickly find you are a slave to the will of the Lich King. You do his bidding because the good in you has been nullified by his powers. It isn't until the story further unfolds that you are able to escape the grasp of the Lich King and defect to the Alliance or Horde.

A Death Knight carries a certain weight of darkness, and if one chooses to play a Death Knight one will see how this weight propagates the story line through which this Hero Class is introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. If one has initial qualms with the morality of the class and how the playable races of the Horde and Alliance are vulnerable to the bidding of the Lich King, one should perhaps not play a Death Knight. Their introduction ultimately does set the tone though for the dark power of the Scourge in the next expansion.

 



引用:死亡骑士开始他那些新手任务的前提是你依然是天灾军团的一名成员,而据我的印象,巫妖王并不认同我们的思路和道德观;不管怎么说,如果玩一个死亡骑士会使你感到不适,那么你最好不要玩死亡骑士。
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

我同意这点。选择一个死亡骑士。(以死亡骑士的角色)第一次进入这个魔兽世界后你将会迅速发现自己不过是巫妖王意志下的一个奴隶。你完成他的命令只是因为你善的一面被巫妖王的力量所压制了,直到你能够逃脱巫妖王的掌握并叛逃到联盟或者部落。

死亡骑士带有确定无疑的黑暗色彩,如果一个玩家选择玩一个死亡骑士,那么通过死亡骑士的任务故事线,他将会看到这个英雄职业所背负的黑暗有多么沉重。如果谁对这个职业的道德观或是他们在联盟和部落各种族中对抗巫妖王的意志最初有所怀疑,那么他最好不要玩一个死亡骑士。他们的加入,通过使用天灾军团的黑暗力量,在这个资料片最终的对抗巫妖王的战斗中将会不可或缺。
