Queen Azshara Defeat Cinematic

Recommended Posts

pB8WjaC.jpg

Queen Azshara has been defeated and here's the cinematic which plays after you beat the boss. Spoiler alert!

In the end, Queen Azshara managed to complete the ritual and free N'Zoth in the Eternal Palace by breaking the chains, which held him imprisoned. In the cinematic, we see Lor'themar and Jaina. Both look really worried. Azshara doesn't die and is saved by the Essence of N'Zoth, but we have no idea where she's taken. With N'Zoth now free, we will likely be going to the sleeping city Ny'alotha in Patch 8.3.

In later stages of the fight against Queen Azshara, she revealed that Magni was indeed made a pawn, as she drains power from our Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth to shatter N'Zoth's prison.

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."

The only quote from N'Zoth in the cinematic is: "All eyes shall be opened." Whatever that means, the God of the Deep is now free and things again look dire not only for the Alliance and the Horde, but Azeroth as a whole.

Update: Blizzard also uploaded the cinematic to the official WoW YouTube channel.

It went as expected. Azshara has been like Azmodan from Diablo, constantly mocking her enemies, while they steamrolled through her minions. Feels like sort of a filler patch, similar to Thunder King, we kill some middle boss, while main villain continues to work behind the scenes. Perhaps Azshara will return as heavily mutated minion, not unlike Deathwing in his final fight, and we kill her again, just before N'zoth, which will likely lead to Void Lords. I guess, Sylvanas is the only unknown at this point, whether she ends up as another villain or Kerrigan-like character, if she becomes someone important in defeating these Void Lords (hopefully she won't, but this seems probable right now).

If we're being fair, we've known Azshara was a "middle boss" for a long, long time. It's been made pretty clear that her entire point in the xpac was to release N'zoth, but there's absolutely no way Blizz won't bring her back

Nothing really surprising or shocking left here, just the confirmation of what everybody already knew was going to happen. Still, really hyped to face N'Zoth and the huge probability of entering Ny'alotha. I've always been a big fan of the Old Gods.

It's very likely to happen for 8.3, wq content and raid, like Argus for Legion. And then... We can only guess right now, but I would like to see the shattered remnants of K'aresh, world of Ethereals which was destroyed by the Void Lords (basically like Outland 2.0, gives opportunity to show many different types of environment).

I have a thought about the Sylvanas/Azshara connection. We know they are both former high elves, but by all accounts Sylvanas is thousands of years younger that Azshara but she would know the stories of her rise and fall. We could very easily be looking at Sylvanas being the tragic hero in this whole scenario. The Void is most afraid of the Forsaken because they cannot be corrupted by the Void. Sylvanas may, in a round about way, not only know this but actively positioning herself and her people to be able to take on the void. The whole lightvoid scenario could be her way of introducing the undead to the Alliance while also trying to strengthen her position. I could be completely wrong and she has been working for N'zoth for years, but I think it would be an interesting twist to have her setting us up for a win all along. This could be information she was able to learn all the way back when she was under Arthas control.

      For some odd reason, a player received a Corrupted Item from the Stockades while leveling, even though the system has been removed from the game in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Argoniek received a Corrupted Item (Standard Issue Prisoner Shoes) while leveling their character through a dungeon, which is weird, as Corrupted Items never dropped for low-level characters in the first place. Here's an image the player shared on Reddit.

      Fortunately, the item lacked any Corrupted Effects, according to the player. Just imagine the chaos that would ensue with Corruption Effects on leveling gear!

      With Mythic+ becoming much more relevant and presumably many more players heading in/returning to the dungeons next week with patch 9.0.5, this video going through some important interrupts for all the Shadowlands dungeons is especially useful!
      Interrupting is one of those anger and conflict-breeding things in dungeons, as fights often break out over a player or players (usually DPS) not doing enough of it, and then because of that there can be many spammed interrupts on 1 ability in response, so it's especially important to know what spells and abilities should be focused on. Tactyks goes through all 8 dungeons and said key interrupt targets:   If you want to prepare for next week's Valor Point system and new gear grind even more, you can also check out our Mythic+ dungeon rankings, weekly routes and specific class tips as well.

      After some community outcry over the new changes coming to keystone next week, Blizzard have detailed a new addition to patch 9.0.5, aimed at improving the weekly Mythic+ keystone generated. Players will be getting their first weekly keystone at the same level of the highest completed key from the previous week! Check out the full and detailed explanation:
      Weekly Mythic Keystones (source)
      One of our goals in 9.0.5 has been to address a situation we introduced in Shadowlands with Mythic Keystones never de-leveling. We received a great deal of feedback on our planned adjustment, which is currently outlined in the 9.0.5 patch notes. With this proposed change, we would reintroduce an awkward dynamic where it wouldn’t be possible to sustain running a single Mythic Keystone dungeon per week, even if you always cleared the dungeon in time, because decay would necessitate re-leveling your keys every other week.
      When we created the original logic for Mythic Keystones in 2016, we wanted to make sure that players were getting Keystones that appropriately suited their proficiency in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we wanted to reinforce the importance of clean and well-executed dungeon runs. Having Keystones decay from one week to the next accomplished both of those goals. However, in Shadowlands, we introduced the Great Vault and more Season-driven tracking of performance in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we unintentionally disabled the logic for de-leveling Keystones, but the reasons for the original design still apply.
      We feel that the game should compensate players who consistently succeed at a certain difficulty by giving them keys that start at that level the following week, so we’re working on an update to 9.0.5 that should alleviate that concern while still satisfying the goals of the original system:
      In a given week, if you finish a Mythic Keystone dungeon in time, the next week’s Great Vault will contain a Keystone of that same level. So, for example, if your highest Mythic Keystone completion during week one is a +15 that you completed in time, you will get another +15 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week two. If you run that +15 during week two and fail to meet the timer, however, and complete no other +15 (or higher) Mythic Keystone dungeons the rest of week two, you will receive a +14 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week three.
      Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

      With the announcement of patch 9.0.5 arriving next week many players have been asking how exactly the Mythic+ Valor Point system achievement requirements for item level caps will work in regard to alts, and if they'll have to re-do the achievements on each alt.
      Luckily we do have some fairly official information on the matter, as Blizzard did mention this in a group interview with Chinese sites, where Ion Hazzikostas, Ely Cannon and Frank Kowalkowski answered many questions, this one being particularly relevant:
      While we don't have an explicit blue post stating this, and it wasn't mentioned in any of the many other interviews, it does make a lot of sense. However, we can't take this as an absolute 100% confirmation and will have to wait a few more days until the actual patch arrives. But for now it's safe to at least assume alts will be able to upgrade their (newly dropped) Mythic+ gear without having to re-do the long process of getting the Season 1 KSM achievement.
      Here a couple of reddit threads where the matter is being discussed:
      Will I have to earn ksm on an alt to upgrade my items to 220 during 9.0.5? Are the upcoming m+ valor upgrade achievements account wide? And big thanks to Thanks to SoulAwaken for the translation, so we don't have to address alts as "trumpets", as google translate refers to them.

      Blizzard / NetEase are reverting Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge Sire Denathrius kills and banning players that participated in real money boosting in the Chinese region.
      Yesterday, we reported about the Hall of Fame being tainted by boosts in the Chinese region. You can read the full article here.
      What happened is that the Alliance Mythic Hall of Fame has filled mostly thanks to real money trading, which is against the ToS, and so NetEase, who is in charge of WoW in the Chinese region, have sent quizzes about the Sire Denathrius fight to suspicious accounts, according to nemof.
      Here are some of the questions that they asked about the encounter:
      What causes the boss to phase? What is the number of cabalists in Phase 2? If there is a Blood Prince in Phase 3, and if so, how many? Placeholder for tweet 1367784617671991298 Placeholder for tweet 1367788267429457922 Apparently, some boosters have already been suspended.
