Count Draynor shows us what happens when Vampyres cross the Salve without some means of protection from it's blessing. Since the vampyre had crossed way back in the series' history, it's almost certainly exceptionally weak.

People thinking that Vampyre up there is gonna be a fight or something. We're probably not even gonna fight him, he's just gonna be one of those exposition/deus-ex-machina characters.

Really I don't even know if taking back the temple is that important. It might just be a "Oh by the way, we took the Temple back as a base of operations. Go upstairs, there's this creepy box thingie. Kthx."

It was stated already that there isn't going to be a big bossfight like there was in Branches of Darkmeyer or Lord of Vampyrium, so I don't even know if Vanescula will be the bossfight, unless you're buffed or she's weakened. Regardless, I know this will inevitably involve some kind of combat. Personally I can't wait for this to be released. If they don't have this released by Monday morning when I get home from work around 8am edt (noon in-game time) I'm calling their HQ to rant.

Tbh, when I heard we were fighting a massive army, I was kind of hoping the "boss fight" would be us controlling our side's army, strategically placing them against enemies on the battle field.

Seems I was bit off in terms of what would happen in the battle.

The scenario was rather simple.

I was correct on the Misthalin "army" retaking the Temple and dealing with lead elements of Vampyres.
But it was a rather short fight.

Vanescula doesn't want blood to be shed. She was hesistant to attack throughout the quest. Compare to her brother, she is more sympathic and tolerable. I'm glad we did not kill Vanescula and i guess she was happy that no one suffers a huge loss.

The speculation here was actually the prelude to what was to come.
Retaking the temple was a foregone conclusion.
How bloody it would be was my speculation.

Howcome the temple wasn't restored when retaken? Wouldn't they have sent people to renovate it or new clergy?

irl answer: more graphical and development work

in game answer: we literally just retook it, it is a long walk to the rest of Misthalin, and it is unlikely that there are any warrior monks lined up to take up residence at this time.
It is just Ivan there atm.

If you talk to Ivan after the quest he'll tell you that he has plans to revamp paterdomus
