Il'gynoth's Prophecy Fulfilling in Patch 8.2 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

23546-lore-the-real-enemy-may-not-be-sar

It's been quite some time since we last set foot in the Emerald Nightmare. Il'gynoth told us some interesting stuff, which did not make much sense back then, and we saw Magni magically appear as the Speaker of Azeroth on Argus to help us heal Azeroth, and now in Patch 8.2, everything's becoming more apparent.

According to the latest sound files of Queen Azshara, Magni was indeed made a pawn, because we learn that the Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth is used to shatter N'Zoth's prison, not to heal Azeroth.

Quote

"You see the truth now, don't you, Heroes? Every move you've made has been according to my will. That lumbering dwarf believed you could save Azeroth by empowering your shiny little heart, the gift of a sleeping titan. Yes, a titan's heart was exactly what was needed, not to heal the world, but to shatter the prison of a god. Such delicious irony, the diamond king has been made a pawn."

MOTHER tells us in Patch 8.2 that Azeroth is cascading toward terminal failure and the only way to save her is to amplify the Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth. Is the titan construct secretly working for N'Zoth?

N'Zoth has two lines in Patch 8.2 which likely refer to the Heart of Azeroth.

Quote

"Your heart, your offering, all dreams made real. Such a heavy burden you carry. Soon, you will be free of it."

N'Zoth

We know from the Dungeon Journal that Queen Azshara attempts to free N'Zoth by overriding the titan devices which keep him imprisoned. It doesn't look like she's going to die, though, because there's no "death dialogue/sound" associated with Queen Azshara in the files so far.

Are you looking forward to Patch 8.2 and the new raid? What consequences will freeing N'Zoth have for us and Patch 8.3? Do you think Sylvanas wielding Xal'atath will play a role in it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below! 

Quote

"The ritual nears completion. The Black Empire rises and the world awaits its true queen."

You know... I dont really feel like she's the Gul'dan of this expac.  They said she would be, being basically the harbinger of the 'Sargeras' of BfA.  

...but I just dont feel it.  She hasn't been nearly present enough to feel that way.  Gul'dan was visceral, there all the time, killing heroes and escaping. 

Azshara has just been... behind the scenes supposedly.  Killing her will honestly feel just like killing another mid-raid boss.  She has lots of lore behin her to be sure, but in-game she just hasn't had the face-time to feel like a key villain IMO.

Absolutely, which is why it is likely she will escape, or actually, allow us to escape after we free N'zoth, and we will see more of her in the future. After all the Queen Azshara fight is quite literally us feeding the Heart's power to N'zoth's prision to save our own skin as otherwise the waters will close in the Circle of Stars and we're all rip. Dungeon Journal is pretty clear on this 🙂

Look man, if you thought you'd be rewarded when new content came out for grinding the heart i don't know what you were thinking. You get rewarded when content is current for getting the heart up to snuff, that's the point.

Everything in this expac feels half-hearted, not necessarily lazy just really uninspired and boring, literally who cares about the queen of azshara, they have not put her in the game enough for us to actually feel anything toward her one way or the other, to make her the ultimate villain or even penultimate villain w/o putting in major facetime in the next patch would be so disappointing

If i remember correct, i think it was preach that said she actually wants to die at this point. Its why shes been so aloof throughout the expansion and even in the fight she doesnt really seem to care. Like shes also cleary OP in several ways but just allows us to do w.e we feel like. It makes sense if she doesnt care that she wouldnt really be seen as pushing anything

      Russian machinima makers Kambrio Machinima have recently translated their Hunters video to English. Made in Unreal Engine 4, using WoW assets, it tells the tale of a Human Hunter and a Forsaken Mage and their little discussion on life and un-life. There are some very impressive shots in the intro and the eventual fight is also well done.


      There's also behind the scenes video, made in a pretty cool manner, as an in-world documentary:

      The machinima makers have a bunch of videos on their channel you can check out as well, including this UE4 recreation of Lakeshire:

      There's been plenty of changes to the Nazjatar zone on the 8.2 PTR and we've updated our Nazjatar zone guide!
      First off, the quests have been beefed up, as there are many more present between the main steps for the zone, aka there are more quests between the introduction, getting to the essence quests for the Heart of Azeroth, the bodyguards etc. which makes the zone a lot more fleshed out. A lot of essences are now linked to quests and achievements instead of being vendor-bought, with an exception for the ones tied to specific reputations. The Laboratory of Mardivan event is now weekly. More cinematics added the battle for Nazjatar PvP event is now more fleshed out. For all of the details and new additions, head on over to our full Nazjatar zone guide, and keep checking back periodically, as it's going to keep getting updated.

      In Patch 8.2, all Azerite powers will be unlocked instantly and the progression will shift into Essences that empower your Heart of Azeroth. Learn more about Essences in our Heart of Azeroth Essence guide!
      Table of Contents
      Introduction Components Ranks Heart of Azeroth Slots All Essences Introduction 
      We expect a big overhaul to the Heart of Azeroth in Rise of Azshara. As a result, Azerite powers will be unlocked instantly and progression is shifting to the neckpiece itself. You will be collecting Essences to gain active abilities and passives. You can find more details in the official preview.
      Components 
      All Essences have two components:
      Major Power Component: Mostly active abilities that are added directly to your spellbook. Note that there are some exceptions and for some Essences, the Major Power can be a passive effect. Minor Power Component: All minor powers are passive effects. Ranks 
      All Essences have four ranks, with the final one being of Legendary quality and purely cosmetic. You currently don't need to earn the previous rank to level them up, so you can learn a Rank 3 Essence immediately, before learning Ranks 1 & 2.
      Rank 1 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] provides an ability based on your role (tank, damage dealer, healer).  Rank 2 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] & Rank 3 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] enhance your Essence's Major & Minor Powers in some way. Rank 4 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] adds a flashy visual to the spell that will make you stand out. Heart of Azeroth Slots 
      The plan for Patch 8.2 is to have a single major slot and two minor slots. The second minor slot unlocks at Heart of Azeroth Level 65. An additional major slot will be added later in Battle for Azeroth.
      Major Slot
      If you insert an Essence into the slot, you will benefit from both its Major & Minor Powers. Minor Slot
      Only the Minor Power of an Essence will work when inserted in this slot.
      Note: You can't insert two of the same Essences into the Heart of Azeroth.
      All Essences 
      Here's a list of all Essences as of Patch 8.2 Build 30262.

    • By Stan
      Powers on Azerite Armor will unlock instantly and progression is moving to Essences in Patch 8.2. You can find more info on Essences in our Essence guide. Here's a preview of the new intro questline which involves MOTHER, Magni, and Spiritwalker Ebonhorn. This article contains spoilers.
      The intro quest becomes available right after you establish your foothold in Nazjatar. Magni informs you that MOTHER has apparently found a way to heal Azeroth.

      1. Essential Empowerment
      You learn that the Chamber of Heart has been repaired in your absence.

      2. MOTHER Knows Best
      MOTHER finished her awesome calculations and Magni tells you to talk to her. A not yet implemented cutscene begins to play and MOTHER introduces Essences.
      3. A Disturbance Beneath the Earth
      MOTHER sends you to Highmountain to recover a dragon essence from Neltharion's Lair. By combining dragon essence with sufficient quantities of Azerite within Heart Forge will cause previously undiscovered abilities to manifest within the Heart of Azeroth.

      You'll find Navvarogg and Spiritwalker Ebonhorn at Snowblind Messa.

      Ebonhorn discovered some sort of disturbance and you must investigate its source.
      4. Take My Hand
      The essence discovered by MOTHER may be an echo of power of the dragonflights. You must act fast before the essence falls into the wrong hands. Talk to Navvarogg to get teleported to the area.
      5. Calming the Spine
      The power of the black dragonflight echoes around you, and the earth is reeling in response. You must seal the Azerite Fissures in the Dragon's Spine. You find out about the presence of a stone lord from Deepholm.

      Once you close all fissures and complete the quest, it's time to confront the stone lord. He won't give up the essence without a fight.

      6. Dominating the Indomitable
      You then loot Petrified Ebony Scale. This will be your first essence and serves as an introduction to the new system in Rise of Azshara.

      7. A Friendly Face
      You must now bring the dragon essence to Magni and MOTHER. Navvarogg has prepared an exit for you, but near the entrance, you'll notice a Blacktalon Watcher in stealth spying on you. We covered the presence of Wrathion's Agents in Rise of Azshara in this post.

      Upon arriving at the Chamber of Heart, Ebonhorn is ready to meet Magni and MOTHER.


      8. The Heart Forge
      The final quest is offered by MOTHER and you must use your Heart of Azeroth to activate the Heart Forge. You will receive rank 1 Petrified Ebony Scale and The Heart Forge achievement.

      Don't forget to check out our Patch 8.2 hub for more details about Heart of Azeroth changes coming in Rise of Azshara.
      Essences Intro Playthrough
      MOTHER finished her calculations and the Heart of Azeroth questline continues in Patch 8.2.
