Battle for Lordaeron Finale Cinematics

Recommended Posts

KN4MpVt.jpg

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.

    • By Stan
      Very little is known about the Path of Ascension coming in Shadowlands, so we're looking at what we found in the game files.
      The Bastion Arena that we though was initially designed for PvP is known in the game files as "9.0 Bastion Arena - Path of Ascension". Another field calls it "The Robodrone".
      The loading screen gives us a very a rough idea about the new zone's appearance, but what is the Scenario really about?

      Through datamining we found multiple achievements tied to the Path of Ascension that include 39 encounter and defeating each boss unlocks more, so it's safe to assume that this could be the Brawler's Guild of Shadowlands.
      The Path Towards Ascension 1 - Defeat a boss in the Path of Ascension. Reward: Unlock more challenges in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 3  - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 5 - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 7 - Defeat seven bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 12 - Defeat 12 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 16 - Defeat 16 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 20 - Defeat 20 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 24 - Defeat 24 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 39 - Defeat 39 bosses in the Path of Ascension. Some spells reveal additional unlockable opponents, hinting at a Brawler's Guild-style system.
      Trial: Mad Mortimer - Unlocks Mad Mortimer as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Trial: Athanos - Unlocks Athanos as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Furthermore, datamining revealed more about Path of Ascension training and your Soulbind will help you during the encounters.
      It seems there will be some sort of Training Dummy implemented to practice for the Path of Ascension and your Soulbind will assist you during the encounter.
      Soul Mirror - Used to capture a memory of a target for training purposes in the Path of Ascension. Extracting Memory - Channel on a Path of Ascension capture target, containing a memory of them within the Soul Mirror to be trained against. [DNT] Start Encounter - Are you ready to face the Path of Ascension with your current selections? Charms
      Buffs that empower your Soulbind in different ways. Charms are crafted through Ascended Crafting. Some of the buffs are still incomplete.
      Charm of Fortitude - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Health by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Alacrity - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Movement Speed by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Persistence - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to regenerate 1% health every 5 seconds during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 4 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to Buff 4 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 5 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 5 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 6 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 6 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 7 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 7 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Latest Shadowlands Alpha Build 34972 News

      It's finally time for the quest to end, as DesMephisto sits at 99.991% of all plate transmogs, with only those pesky Farrison pants remaining. Today will most likely be the day, as the Garrison list resets and he's going to unleash 45 characters at the RNG to try and get those very specific Formidable Leggings!
      He'll be streaming the probable/potential 100% today, starting around 10-11 AM PST / 7-8PM CEST, so definitely tune in to see potential history in action. The stream will also be supporting NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

      Leveling 10-50 Takes Under 4 Hours on Shadowlands Alpha
    • By Starym
      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.
