except they NEVER fight one another as much as they declare they will, they got a fricking love thing going on behind the alliance and the horde and with Vol'jin basically making a treaty with the alliance roughly for the most part, their unwillingness to fight one another is ever stronger, seriously, these two are the MOST commonly paired canon characters and even blizz hints that there's something going on, I mean, that's great cuz they got a lesbian couple going on, why not a gay one too, so yeah!

With the attention these two are getting I'm wondering if there is a redemption/rehash with these two as the main protagonists in the Warcraft Universe or even World of Warcraft itself.  Redemption meaning that we find out what happened to Koltira after his forceful interactions with the Lich Queen, and figuring out if he'll ever be the same again; and rehash in that we might either go back to a redone Northrend with these two being our faction leaders (since perhaps Bolvar finally went nuts?).

Beautifully done :D  And glad the whole Kolssarian/Thatira is just a fleeting bromance fad :D

it is stated that it takes many years to awaken from the frozen slumber, Arthas was in there for a good long while, don't count on it too soon, Ner'zhul needs to regain his strength and recover over the loss of Frostmourne

I am a huge fan of the tension-rife but oh-so-interesting concept of best friends who are cross-faction, like Tirion Fordring and Eitrigg.
Something about it just never feels old for me, and these two frostbringin' hotshots are a fabulous example that you do wonderfully here!
Morrivar Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014
I get what you're saying with Tirion, but they're not cross-faction anymore. So also don't think they were ever "best friends" like Thassarian and Koltira, more like well-trusted allies.

I SO love this frosty best-friend duo, they're one of my faves! (Orgrim & Durotan is another fave.)
The tragedy that brought them into each other's lives (un-lives?) is so heart-twisting, and this is the first picture on deviantART that I've seen that actually does them some justice.

It looks as if they are sparring! I am ignoring the canon story, because it bothers me, and writing something nicer; as far as I'm concerned, they are both at Acherus, working with Highlord Darion, in tandem with the Argent Crusade. they deserve happy endings after all they went through.

i would prefere that too, since they're both still members of the ebon blade and the alliance and horde thing is a pass time in my brain XXDDD
but now sylvannas is going nutty so thats not good =/

Absolutely fabulous. I love the different tones of blues in this image. You really brought Thassarian and Koltira to life in this picture. Always loved these two. Stellar job indeed! :heart:

i love these two. koltira is the reason i love death knights. his sword and armour look so badass lol
murmeltierchen Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Wonderful! That's the most beautiful painting of Thassarian and Koltira I have seen so far... and I have seen a lot. ;) Most of them are sadly slash-pics and I don't really like the idea of those two... you know >_>
Nope I like them far better this way. Great characters with a great story and a strong friendship. Love Koltira's smile it's like "Come at me bro!" :D
Thassarian is one of my favorite NPCs in WoW and the main reason I loved questing in Icecrown.
TrueOkamiAmaterasu Featured By Owner Edited Aug 31, 2015  Student Writer
*cough* um, you're aware the slash thing is suggested by Blizzard and like strongly supported? it's like that lesbian sentinel and her girlfriend, these two are seriously make the ship themselves quite often...Thassarian even going BALLS OF GLORY AGAINST SYLVANAS ON HIS OWN TO SAVE KOLTIRA FROM HER!

i dont like thassarian and koltira in my eyes they are traitors to the ebon blade how fight for the stupid alliance and the stupid horde... to good my deathknight (is in my eyes) a neutral knight of the ebon blade^^

This is beautiful! I wish they could just be friends without all the crazy stuff between the Horde and Alliance.
sobercollegekid23 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011
Awesome. I'm definitely rooting for Thassarian.

Thassarian and Koltira were friends before and after they were turned into Death Knights by the Litch King. If I remember well Koltira was loyal to Thassarian and was forced to aid the horde instead of following Thassarian on his vendeta. I think they are still friends even if they fight to put on a show.

They were happier back as the lich king's childrens of the damn.

These guys are my favorite in-game NPCs. I love their story and how they manage to be friends despite all the politics. :XD:

Wonderful painting technique! I really like the sense of movement and strength in the two men.

This is fantastic. The vacillating relationship these two have is equally intense. Tangentially, Koltira totally looks like he has tricks up his sleeve that Thassarian doesn't know about. :meow:

Gorgeous colors! The movement and tension of this is really great and makes the piece.
