Baine and Zelling help Derek Proudmoore escape and Sylvanas takes both prisoners?

"The ritual complete, I saw a creature coalesce before my eyes."

It finished forming and cried out with its newfound life.

"It caught my eyes and peered inside my mind, filling it with the knowledge I needed to summon it."

"My trial complete, I finished the last stroke of my story and returned to the material realm."

De Zandalari have ruled dis land for thousands of years.

"But over time, our empire grew stagnant. We stood alone."

"Now, I am queen."

"Storm above and tides below, hear us now!"

"Breathe strength into our sails, and guard us against the crushing depths!"

"Let this vessel be one with the vast ocean, and us with her."

"Sea to sea, storm to storm, tide to tide."

People of Zandalar.

Many questioned my judgment when I reached out to de Horde.

"But without their aid, we would have collapsed under de weight of our pride. These mighty allies have given Zandalar new strength."

"A glorious future awaits our empire, and we must embrace it together. Will you stand with me?"

,Zandalar forever!,169339,0,0,0,6,0,0,126122,0,0,0,0,0,0

I have troubling news. It seems there are traitors in our midst.

Most of you need fear nothing.

But Derek Proudmoore didn't flee to Kul Tiras by himself. He had help. Didn't he...

... Zelling?

You raised him as a Forsaken. But you planned to deny him his free will. To violate his mind.

Thank you for your honesty.

Banshee! Are we nothing more than pawns in your game? You betray the Horde!

No. He did. And so did you.

Take him.

"Other will see you for what you are, Sylvanas. You will leave the Horde in ruins!"

There is no place for weakness in our ranks.

"Greetings. I am the Matron of Tenacity, Herald of Endless Research. Designation: MOTHER."

Pleased tae meet ye. I'm--

Visitor identified. Designation: Speaker. Presence of Speaker indicates imminent threat to Azeroth.

"Exactly! We need yer help, MOTHER. Azeroth's dyin', and nothin' we do seems tae heal her."

Error: Uldir facility designed for Old God experimentation and containment. Planetary rehabilitation not within operational parameters.

Recommendation: Relocate MOTHER unit to Chamber of Heart facility.

"Uh, no offense, but if me flyin' machine couldn't carry Magni, I doubt it can haul a titan watcher all the way tae Silithus!"

Acknowledged. Waygate activation advised. Destination coordinates encoded within Heart of Azeroth.

"Well, ye heard her, champion. Let's get tae it!"

Guided your hand.

Receive my gift and see all truths before you.

That which was sunken shall rise.

All that were sleeping... shall be awakened.

"As my hand got close to the book, it began to write all on its own..."

"At the moment my pen touched the empty parchment, something began to stir within the pages."

I could feel my very essence being pulled into the book.

My vision began to fade...

We will meet again... I am certain of it.

...and as it refocused I found myself in a strange chamber.

"Suddenly a voice filled my mind, and in a lyrical tone it recited a poem,"

"What spills from pen, and spills from vein. Intermingled here within. Beware the jet, collect the crimson. And your blood-bound slayer shall be arisen."

"I tried to open one of the doors, but it wouldn't budge. I'd have to press on through the creatures before me."

"As I entered the chamber, a larger version of the creatures I'd been fighting stood before me. Perhaps this was the trial I was here to complete."

"With de loa's blessing, our sacred blades and mighty ships commanded de seas."

Threats from without and within rose up to challenge us... to test our faith.

"And together with de Horde, we take our rightful place among de great kingdoms of Azeroth. Zandalar forever!"

"I stand before you, having proven myself to de loa."

But it is your trust dat I must earn.

Stop! ... I returned Derek Proudmoore to his family.

I could not stand by and permit such depravity to unfold.

Remember your loyalties.

"Welcome back, champion. Contamination levels minimal since successful purge of specimen G'huun."

"(Frightened Zelling stammers, panting) (Do we need his dying exertion too?)"

im actually pumped for these.

The hallows end one was epic.  Winter veil was... underwhelming but not bad.  

The Noble Garden possibilities are endless, what with bunnies, eggs... I'd like to see us turn into a bunny and jump around until we eventually leap into the sky with such force that we end up wherever our hearthstone is set to.

      New Mage and Warrior Soulbind Conduits were added to the game in the latest Alpha build.
      Soulbind Conduits
      Soulbinds and Conduits offer an additional layer of customization in Shadowlands in addition to Covenant Abilities and Legendary Powers and they are very similar to Legion Artifacts traits. Each Covenant comes with a couple of NPCs called the Soulbinds that offer power progression through diverse talent trees and nodes (Conduits) that you gradually unlock by farming a Torghast currency.
      Here's an example of Theotar's Soulbind talent tree taken from BlizzCon's Deep Dive Panel.

      Soulbinds are generic and class/role-specific, so they will be different for each class. In this week's Alpha Build 34902, we spotted new Mage and Warrior Soulbind Conduits. You can find more details about the system in our preview of Soulbinds.
      Mage
      Ice Bite - Increases the damage of Ice Lance against frozen enemies by 10%. Icy Propulsion - While Icy Veins is active, your critical hits reduce its cooldown by 3 seconds. Shivering Core - Blizzard damage and snare increased by 5%. Unrelenting Cold - Frozen Orb damage is increased by 10%. Warrior
      Ashen Juggernaut - Execute/Condemn increases the critical strike chance of Execute by 3% for 8 seconds, stacking up to 6 times. Brutal Vitality - 6.0% of the damage you deal adds to your active Ignore Pain. Cacophonous Roar - Intimidating Shout can withstand 80% more damage before breaking. Crash the Ramparts - Overpower has a 6% chance to apply Colossus Smash for 3 seconds. Indelible Victory - Victory Rush/Impending Victory heals you for 400% of the damage it dealt over 8 seconds. Inspiring Presence - Rallying Cry's duration and health granted are increased by 20%. Iron Maiden - Slam (Arms+Fury) or Revenge (Protection) has a 4% chance to refund a charge of Shield Block. Merciless Bonegrinder -Slam critical strikes reduce the remaining cooldown of Ravager/Bladestorm by 1 second. Safeguard - Intervene reduces damage taken by the target by 10%. Stalwart Guardian - The cooldown of Die by the Sword (Arms), Enraged Regeneration (Fury), or Shield Wall (Protection) is reduced by 20 seconds. Latest Shadowlands Alpha Build 34972 News
