Final cinematics for Battle for Lordaeron are now available with the scenario enabled in North America. It's time to witness the GRAND FINALE!

Both cinematics are different depending on your faction. Credit to MMO-Spoilers for the videos!

Battle for Lordaeron Final Cinematic  (Alliance)

Anduin, Genn, Alleria, and Jaina approach Sylvanas and give her a chance to surrender, or die. Anduin tells her that she has led a war without honor. Alleria tells her she should have killed her long ago, but Sylvanas calmly approaches Anduin and tells him: "You won NOTHING", before going full banshee and blowing up Undercity. Jaina casts some sort of arcane barrier to protect the Alliance party.

Batle for Lordaeron Final Cinematic (Horde)

The Horde cinematic starts with Baine, Nathanos, and Sylvanas entering the throne room. Baine blames Sylvanas for abandoning Saurfang to die to the hands of the Alliance (the event takes place after Alliance forces decide to imprison Saurfang). Sylvanas tells him it's the death he wanted and if that troubled Baine, he's free to join him, or he could tend to the living. Baine mumbles "For the Horde", and returns to help Saurfang. Finally, she tells Nathanos what needs to be done and just casually chills on the throne, waiting for Anduin to arrive.

Why Jaina didn't remove the plague, when just earlier she did that with her frost spells?

Wasn't that the new plague that Blightcaller wanted to use in the novella to kill Night Elves? Saurfang was against it and they agreed to bring in more siege cannons instead.

Say what you will about Sylvanas and her motivations but she is winning the war. She's destroyed an enemy stronghold and secured her flank as well as drawn a massive enemy force into a trap and forced them to endure a pyrrhic victory. The alliance holds a plague infested ruin for all the lives they spent, meanwhile she can solidify her hold on Kalimdor and all the Azerite deposits in Silithus.

Don't get me wrong I'm still not happy with the direction the writing has taken with much us, The Horde, the bad guys yet again but at least we're competent bad guys this time... That's a win I guess?

It is possible, though I wonder how it could have resisted Jaina's magic then.

I like the direction it takes. Sylvanas is being Sylvanas, she just looks a little bit more evil than usual lately (visually I mean).

I agree, that was definitely dumb for the Blizz to do that. I think the only way to argue that is in the explosion also most of city was fallen down and now it needs time to clean the plague (also from the dirt) and then to rebuild the city.

IIRC, the plague deployment makes the land unihabitable for quite some time, but I think we're in for the retcon if Jaina just nullified it with a single spell...

Well Jaina only froze the blight and it would need time to get Ruins in a livable state.They cant really waste time with tending to Undercity while the war is going on and Azeroth is hurt.

And now forward to the isles in the middle of nowhere for the rest of the expansion, and no one talks about the war, Teldrassil, Loraderon or Silithus again.

Yay, adventure!

Did...did they just forget that she could do that whole banshee thing?   I mean in-game time wise she just did it outside like 30 minutes ago in front of their faces?

I think that they knew that she could had scaped if she wanted... so, if shi didn't ran, it should have some kind of trap (thats why Anduin stop Genn).

Maybe some new recept to make it more resistant agains normal magic :) so it will not be dealt easily by magic like in WrathGate (where it were purifired by a dragon fire breath) by a lot of dragons btw (which fire have magical properties) :)

Well if you look closely her frost spell just whoosh it like wind could have done it, remember it's outside. While on close door I don't think it would have worked 🙂 also it took a bit longer to cast her frost spell, while indoor it was an emergency and they were no benefit of doing it since they were only 4 there.

I just want to reinforce that everybody not satisfied with Sylvanas' actions should read the novella Blizzard released, at least the Horde one ("A good war"). It really explains the reasoning behind the Warchief's actions, even if I still don't like it. And is shows just how much info was left out of the in game quests and content (also in my opinion the book writers are better then the quest writers). I hope the Alliance's short story ("Elegy") is as good, but I haven't read it yet.

Still, it doesn't appear to be well thought. If she intends to take over whole Kalimdor then what about Nordrassil? Wouldn't she have to  fight Cenarius, other "Wild Gods" and druids (including neutral ones)? What about Exodar? And the list goes on.

Another important thing left out of games is The Gathering (from Before the Storm) and Calia Menethil being resurrected as a special type of undead. Players who only know game will be confused if Calia suddenly reappears as undead, although many may not know her if they didn't play or watch priest campaign from Legion.

I think WoD was even worse in that regard, when the last players have seen of Garrosh was him being taken for trial in Pandaria, then suddenly there is Horde from alternate past attacking and Garrosh is somehow present in that version of Draenor. Without reading a book, there wasn't any explanation.
