Merely a Setback is a meme used by World of Warcraft players, referring to a boss character making a comeback after being defeated at some earlier point in the game. The quote originated with the boss Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider, who had been already (assumed to have been) killed in a 25-player team-effort/"raid" in a place called Tempest Keep. However, he had been nursed back to his regular health by one of his DEMONIC PRIESTESS SERVANTs and appeared in a dungeon called Magisters' Terrace which was release at the end of the first expansion. When players finally entered his room, he said:

"Don't look so smug! I know what you're thinking, but Tempest Keep was merely a set back. Did you honestly believe I would trust the future to some blind, half-night elf mongrel? Hahahaha... Oh no, no, no, he was merely an instrument, a stepping stone to a much larger plan! It has all led to this...and this time, you will not interfere!"



The reason this page was made is because on June 6th, 2010, Haz' name was smug.gif, so Invi said:

"Don't look so smug.gif! I know what you're thinking, but BZPC was merely a set back. Did you honestly believe I would trust the future to some ego-maniacal, symbiotic mongrel? Hahahaha... Oh no, no, no, he was merely an instrument, a stepping stone to a much larger plan! It has all led to this...and this time, you will not interfere!"


(ego-maniacal was edited into the quote with creation of this page to look more like the original quote)
The meme is usually addressed as "[LOCATION OF PLACE ORIGINALLY SEEN FROM] was merely a setback!"
