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.

      With the release of the updated Recruit A Friend program, unclaimed rewards from the previous version of the program will expire on December 31.
      Here's a short reminder for everyone with pending RAF rewards earned under the previous version of the program. You must claim them before the end of this year.
      Blizzard (Source)
      UPDATE: If you were active in the previous Recruit A Friend program, you will no longer be able to earn rewards under the previous program as of December 31, 2019. All unclaimed rewards earned under the previous program will expire and we will be removing the redemption functionality.

      In Patch 8.3, any tanking specialization or a Druid of any spec with Bear Form active will have a flat +50% threat modifier applied to them when they unlock the Major Slot on their Heart of Azeroth. Changing specs to non-tank specs or leaving Bear Form will remove the threat modifier.
      Up to now, tank specializations received bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. This is changing in Visions of N'Zoth and you'll receive +50% threat once you've unlocked the Major Slot.
      A player with Heart of Azeroth level 70 should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after Patch 8.3 goes live.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We made a change via hotfix a few months ago to grant Tank specialization characters bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. In the Visions of N’Zoth update, we have changed this slightly.
      In Visions of N’Zoth, once you have unlocked the Major Slot, if you are any tanking specialization or a druid of any specialization with Bear Form active, you will just have a +50% threat modifier applied to you. Changing specializations to a non-tank specialization or leaving Bear Form will remove this threat modifier.
      There is no longer any bonus threat for each unlocked slot, you just get a sizable threat bump from the start. This should help reduce some issues where tanks with different Heart of Azeroth levels and slot unlocks were having difficulties with threat between each other.
      edit: This threat modifier should be multiplicative, not additive. A player currently at Heart of Azeroth level 70 with all slots unlocked should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after the Visions of N’Zoth update hits.

      Hurricane released a teaser for the Black Temple trailer that will be slightly longer than his Naxxramas trailer released back in 2017.
      Hurricane has been working on the Black Temple trailer for the last three months and we will need to wait a little longer for the full video.

      Ny'alotha raid testing continues this week with The Prophet Skitra on Mythic difficulty and Halls of Devotion, the second LFR wing of the raid.
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, December 13th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City. After the test is complete we will make the second wing of Looking for Raid available for the weekend.
      Friday, December 13th
      The Prophet Skitra - Mythic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Halls of Devotion - Looking for Raid Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      It's time for Cataclysm Timewalking this week and players level 86 and above are eligible to enter the Firelands Timewalking raid for the very first time.
      Firelands, the new Timewalking raid, has been added to the game in Patch 8.2.5, and this week, it's the first time players can enter it and defeat the seven bosses for loot.
      You can find item level 395 loot in Timewalking dungeons and item level 415 loot dropping in the new raid. Completing 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest rewards Cache of Palace Treasures, a chest with one piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      Don't forget that Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from any Timewalking dungeon boss as Personal Loot and save up your Timewarped Badges for expensive mounts like Beastlord's Irontusk, Beastlord's Warwolf, Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger, Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade, and more.

      Gather your staunchest allies and head into the Firelands raid dungeon to take on the elemental lord Ragnaros and his cohorts—and take on six dungeons from Deathwing’s era— during Cataclysm Timewalking, running December 10–17.
      The Firelands is the molten domain forged by the titans to house Ragnaros and his wayward minions. Following Deathwing’s emergence into Azeroth, Ragnaros and his servants surged onto the slopes of Mount Hyjal before being driven back by the sacred mountain’s valiant defenders. Now Ragnaros is rallying his loyalists to defend the Firelands from Azeroth’s champions.
      When: The Firelands raid is available throughout the Cataclysm Timewalking event.
      Difficulty: The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder.
      Minimum Level: Players level 86 and above are eligible to participate.
      Bosses: (7) Beth’tilac, Lord Rhyolith, Alysrazor, Shannox, Baleroc, the Gatekeeper, Majordomo Staghelm, Ragnaros
      During Cataclysm Timewalking, you can assemble a raid group of between 1 and 30 players to step into the molten domain of Ragnaros. Don’t have a regular group? The Group Finder (I) can help. Create your own group in the Premade Groups section or search for like-minded adventurers.
      DUNGEONS IN CATACLYSM TIMEWALKING
      Grim Batol
      Don’t be fooled by Grim Batol’s humble exterior; many of this mountain fortress’s desecrated chambers are buried deep in the Twilight Highlands. Once the stronghold of the Wildhammer dwarves, and later seized by orcs as a prison for Alexstrasza, the city is now in the clutches of the Twilight’s Hammer cult.
      The Stonecore
      Within the Temple of Earth, locked in the heart of Deepholm, lies the Stonecore. It was inside these caverns that the Twilight’s Hammer toiled over Deathwing, hammering elementium plates to the Dragon Aspect’s body in an attempt to hold his tormented form together. With his renewal complete, Deathwing ascended into Azeroth, shattering the World Pillar and destabilizing the region of Deepholm.
      Lost City of theTol’vir
      The Lost City of the Tol’vir is the stronghold of the Neferset, a faction of the cat-like tol’vir who swore fealty to Deathwing in exchange for a cure to the curse of flesh, which had turned their rocky hides to soft skin. With the affliction expunged, the tol’vir have rebelled against the benefactor, although they remain irrevocably twisted and hostile due to the dark pact they made.
      The Vortex Pinnacle
      The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol’vir, as well as Al’Akir the Windlord’s merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.
      Throne of the Tides
      Deep within the Abyssal Maw’s fathomless expanses lies the Throne of the Tides. From here, the great elemental lord Neptulon the Tidehunter has surveyed and protected his aquatic domain for ages. He now faces his greatest challenge as a force of serpentine naga and malefic faceless ones threaten to depose him, leaving his realm and its secrets ripe for the plundering.
      End Time
      One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should Deathwing fail to be stopped. Nozdormu has identified a powerful anomaly that exists in this moment and bars access to the past—and hope of retrieving the Demon Soul. The powerful creature from out of time lives alone amidst the time-twisted echoes of the past.
      JUST THE FACTS
      Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your regular level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Stonecore, Slabhide could drop the Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake mount for you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- J).
      Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
      Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.
