Blizzard released a new three-part audio drama called "A Thousand Years of War" - The Story of Alleria & Turalyon, written by Robert Brooks and narrated by Stephen Pacey.

The story talks about Alleria & Turalyon fighting on Argus to end the Dark Titan's crusade, joining the Army of the Light and Alleria embracing the Void.

You can also download a PDF version of the drama here. The mp3 versions are cut off at 5:22 for some odd reason.

PART ONE: TWO BRIGHT LIGHTS

Ranger-Captain Alleria Windrunner and High General Turalyon’s disappearance was not the end of their last war, but rather the beginning of a new and more terrible one.

PART TWO: THE EMERALD STAR

After joining the Army of the Light, Alleria and Turalyon’s war against the Burning Legion took them all the way to the seat of the demons’ power: Argus.

PART THREE: SHADOW AND LIGHT

The Burning Legion is attacking Azeroth. The Army of the Light is on the verge of defeat. Alleria and Turalyon are on opposite sides of the cosmos, desperately searching for the key to ending Sargeras’s crusade.

Oh I love this things, loved the Khadgar vs Guldan one and loved this too <3

That series was awesome, looking forward to hearing this one too. Keep it up Blizz, lore has certainly gotten increasingly interesting lately.

I feel like it's because we are back on track with our "real" lore - while it was awesome to revisit things in WoD, we are getting new characters, old ones being reintroduced with new life, and new progression for our world rather than another.

Legion has certainly been a step up in lore. I completely agree with you too. Where WoD lacked lore and gameplay, Legion lacks neither. It's really awesome because the Legion has been such a big part of Warcraft lore for a long time now and to see them finally getting a proper story is awesome. 

I also can't wait to see how Blizz does with elaborating on the light (Naaru) and their goals and methods, as after the Illidan cinematic it's obvious that they aren't one sided beings and might have a secret side to them we don't yet know. Same goes for the Void, who seem to be becoming increasingly present in the lore. I would love to see how they tell the story of the Void Lords and even more so, how they go forward with Old Gods like N'Zoth. Not to mention, more of a story to one of Blizzard's most iconic characters ever, Jaina. 

Speaking of Jaina, to me, it would make sense if the Old Gods harnessed her rage after what Garrosh did to Theramore and took influence of her. The last thing I'd want however would be for her to fall to the Void. If she even is under the Old God's influence I hope we can wrestle her out of it's control and save her. Then her story can continue in a peaceful type of way.

I just can't see how they can make her a peaceful character in any way anymore - she has had such a pure, unkempt hatred for the Horde instilled in her that I don't see how they can ever make her work with them in the future, no matter the enemy. The Legion threatened destruction of the entire world and she didn't care.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      6/8H, 8/8N Uldir.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Wait-list. Players who are truly interested should fill out an application and join the guild as a community member until a raid spot opens up. 
      Interested? Next steps: 
      Please check out our team's wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit.
      Read the Guild Code of Conduct
      Complete and submit a New Raider Application
      Join the guild's Discord server
      Add the Raid Leaders on bnet:  joat#1832 & lambkill#1856  
      Looking forward to hearing from you!

      Rextroy is back with another video after soloing MOTHER on Normal difficulty. This time around, it took him 0.5 seconds to defeat Vectis. It's no longer possible to execute this, because the bug (or clever use of gameplay mechanics?) has been hotfixed.
      A buff that was supposed to reset after entering Uldir allowed him to one-shot Vectis with a single attack.

      Blizzard clarified that Brewfest trinkets should have item level 335 and they're working on a fix to bring them to the correct item level.
      Brewfest started today and trinkets from Coren Direbrew have been adjusted to level 120 and item level 289. It turns out this was not intended and the actual item level of Brewfest trinkets is supposed to be 335. A hotfix will be deployed to live realms soon to address the issue.
      Check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Hey guys! We're working on a fix at the moment to bring these items to the correct ilvl, which should be ilvl 335 at 120. This fix should also be retroactive, so if you got any of them already no worries ?

      Brewfest is here and we have no updates this year, only Coren Direbrew's trinkets have been adjusted for level 120.
      The event's Brewmaster achievement is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, so it must be completed if you're working on your Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. Trinkets have been updated to ilvl 289 this year. Don't forget to queue up for Coren Direbrew every day for a chance to receive loot, mounts, and check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Do you love eating delicious faire food, drinking bountiful beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples? Brewfest has arrived and you can do all that and more during this holiday.
      When: September 20–October 6
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar 
      Coren Direbrew is up to his usual tricks within Blackrock Depths, but characters levels 20-120 can put a stop to his brawling ways by hopping into the Group Finder (I). There just might be a Swift Brewfest Ram or Great Brewfest Kodo in your future!
      What do you get when you have everything? Use your Brewfest Prize Tokens to purchase some of the festive Brewfest items including: the Throwing Sausage, Gravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage Hat, and Synthebrew Goggles XL. 
      The competing brewers from across Azeroth have made sure to bring along some great brews for you to sample, each with a cosmetic effect:
      T’Chali Voodoo Brewery – Spirit Spirits
      Gordok – Gordok Bock
      Thunderbrew – Storming Saison
      Drohn’s Distillery – Mannoroth’s Blood Red Ale
      Barleybrew – Shimmer Stout

      Alliance players have contributed enough resources and can queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront for the first time to claim their ilvl 370 reward.
      Alliance
      For the next 7 days, Alliance players will be able to queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront and fight against the Horde AI. Defeat the Commander to get the War is Hell achievement and a once-per-cycle ilvl 370 reward.
      If you're not able to click the War Table in Boralus, make sure to complete the quick intro quest to unlock Warfronts (Warfront: The Battle for Stromgarde).
      The minimum item level requirement to queue up for the Warfront is 320. You'll receive a piece of ilvl 340 loot that can titanforge every time you complete the Warfront. You can't get rings or trinkets from Warfronts at this time.
      Horde
      The Horde still controls Arathi Highlands and have access to the world boss, quests, and rares. You can find more details here. In 7 days, Alliance will control the zone and the second Horde contribution phase begins.
