Il'gynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3

Recommended Posts

43900-ilgynoths-prophecy-fulfilling-spoi

Il'gynoth returns as a boss in Ny'alotha, the Patch 8.3 raid, and with it comes another round of whispers full of prophecies. What do they entail? This article contains spoilers.

We fought Il'gynoth back in the Emeral Nightmare and if you played in Legion, chances are you know that his prophecies have manifested themselves later on in Battle for Azeroth. He gave us hints on how Magni would become a pawn, which happened in Rise of Azshara, and much more. Now, he's back in Ny'alotha and his Voice Overs are full of riddles.

Quote
  1. Before the last shadow falls, the father of sleep shall savor his feast.
  2. The golden one claims a vacant throne. The crown of light will bring only darkness.
  3. When their mistress beckons, nine ravens take flight. Each seeks a prize to earn her favor.
  4. The vessel of life disguises treachery. Beware of the eyes of green.
  5. Five lanterns now darkened. The flame they seek will light the master's way.
  6. The blind queen wields a scepter of bone. From the deep she calls forth doom.
  7. The cunning ones kneel before six masters, but serve only one.

Il'gynoth VO

We've analyzed all whispers below.

Quote

1. Before the last shadow falls, the Father of Sleep shall savor his feast.

This refers to Mueh'zala who is also referred to as the Father of Sleep based on WoWWiki. Mueh'zala is the loa of death worshipped by the Sandury Tribe, and likely, Bwonsamdi's boss, whose identity has not been unveiled yet.

Quote

2. The golden one claims a vacant throne. The crown of light will bring only darkness.

The "Golden One" is Calia Menethil. Although the game did not contain information on how Sylvanas killed her and Calia got raised, 8.3 sound files hint at Calia becoming the new leader of the Forsaken and her plans to reclaim Lordaeron.

Il'gynoth claims Calia will bring only darkness. This may refer to the events of Patch 9.0 and beyond. Remember, that we faced Il'gynoth as a boss at the beginning of Legion and his prophecies came true just recently in Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara.

Quote

3. When their mistress beckons, nine ravens take flight. Each seeks a prize to earn her favor.

The Val'kyr have some sort of pact with Sylvanas and it appears they are eager to fulfill her every wish. What that entails remains to be seen.

Quote

4. The vessel of life disguises treachery. Beware of the eyes of green.

"The Vessel of Life" probably refers to the Green Dragonflight. It foreshadows a traitor amidst their ranks. Merithra, the Daughter of Ysera, has seen some screen time in Battle for Azeroth and what the future brings is uncertain as for now.

Quote

5. Five lanterns now darkened. The flame they seek will light the master's way.

The Dragon Aspects have lost their powers after defeating Deathwing and in Battle for Azeroth, they're back helping us against N'Zoth. 

Quote

6. The blind queen wields a scepter of bone. From the deep she calls forth doom.

Patch 8.3 Voice Overs suggest that Sylvanas, who's now wielding Xal'atath, wants to use it against N'Zoth to defeat him. Her deal with Queen Azshara was to bring the champions of the Alliance and the Horde to Nazjatar, and in Visions of N'Zoth, Azshara provides us with valuable information on how to defeat the God of the Deep.

Quote

7. The cunning ones kneel before six masters, but serve only one.

In World of Warcraft there are six planes (realms of existence). We are the "cunning ones" and it seems we only serve one master, which is death.

This is pretty close to what I had laid out a few days ago:

I sort of felt the same way about the 6 masters part but I couldn't count off the top of my head how many planes there are - that's my bad - or I would have arrived at the same conclusion.

Interesting, reading it just now. What makes you think that "vessel of life" and "eyes of green" refer to Tyrande & Elune and not the Green Dragonflight?

I'm suspicious as to how Eonar avoided the Legion for so long when her titan brethren were vanquished so much easier. She was hiding in a sanctuary somewhere in the cosmos with neighboring planets or moons that seemed to be void corrupted. Admittedly, I thought this was my biggest stretch in the posted speculation.

When reevaluated, I think it is probably referring to the Green Dragonflight or maybe even Malfurion himself. There's still the unresolved plot point of the Nightmare being introduced to the heart of the Emerald Dream after the EN raid - I think someone has fallen to madness for sure. That raid was more than just a filler, throw-away fan service - the Rift of Aln, our fight with Xavius within it, the infection of the Emerald Dream's heart, and the release of N'zoth are all connected, I'm sure of it. I actually think our fight within the Rift weakened the boundaries between the Dream, the Twisting Nether, and the Great Dark Beyond, which could lead to easier access for the Void.

I'm not sure the titan pantheon will have such a starring role in the next expansion or patch, so that weakens my original theory as well. I do however find it interesting that the Seat of the Pantheon skybox imagery is still present. It's the biggest reason why I think the titan presence in the immediate story isn't done yet.

  • Arthas (Lich King)

  • Thrall

      Blizzard have added many clarifications to the loot system coming with Dragonflight, specifically focusing on Group Loot and clarifying that weapons will most likely will not be BoE drops.
      Raid Loot (Source)
      Hey folks, going to respond to add some clarity that might alleviate some concerns, or at the very least better communicate how things will be.
      As the title says, these would be for Dragonflight Season 1 - which means the Group Loot being always on is not just for beta. That said, we’ve improved Group Loot a lot from when it was last shown in 2016, and are continuing to work to remove other edge cases. For example:
      In the past, Need/Greed only knew if something was equippable or the right armor type, not if it was meant for your spec or not. This is now changed. First off, you can never Need for anything your class cannot wear. No warriors sniping cloth robes with a need roll and giving it away or trolling. We also have mainspec and offspec functionality built-in, which changes based on the current loot spec you set. Main spec takes priority, then Off spec, then greed. So while a Ret paladin can’t off-spec loot a shield away from a main-spec roll from the Tank, anyone rolling greed could never win it over them. This also means that if you swap specs for a specific fight, like going Holy, you can still main spec roll for your desired items if they come from that boss without having to worry about hurting yourself by being flexible to your group. Players won’t be able to win multiples of the same item - say that 2 sets of Shoulders drop. While you can roll Need on both of them, winning one will ‘remove’ your roll from the other. Additionally, players can’t Need on a piece of loot if they’re wearing the exact piece at the exact item level, though in the event where this occurs but the dropped piece has a Tertiary stat or Socket, that roll would be possible (as those are upgrades). Lastly, even after winning the roll, items remain fully tradeable without restrictions to any player that was eligible as a looter - as-in, if you weren’t locked to that boss previously. Inversely, this means that players who have already killed Boss 1 on Normal for the week can’t join for that boss and have loot traded to them (similarly, the need/greed pane won’t appear for that player). As many in this thread have speculated, all players in Personal Loot were constantly ‘rolling’ behind the scenes, whether you wanted to or not. It’s not as simple as ‘with group loot you’re rolling against everyone, but in personal loot you’re rolling against fewer’. Changing to Group Loot for raids makes the process of loot acquisition and distribution more transparent and gives players more freedom to trade loot around and allocate it socially if they choose to do so.
      Additionally, the current plan is for Group Loot to be active in Looking for Raid, though we’re open to taking action such as increasing the quantity of loot from LFR if the friction proves to be too much there.
      On the Topic of BoEs:
      Based on feedback and some further consideration, we’re likely not moving forward with Weapons as part of a BoE table just yet. It’s very possible that introducing that level of volatility would make it hard to us to verify how the other BoE changes are working (and if we’d like to support them). It’s on the table for future iteration, but might cause too much unintended chaos at the start of a period of so much systemic change for WoW as a whole.
      Thanks for all your feedback thus far, and we hope this at least better clarifies how we envision this working in the near future.
      ...
      I am presuming for weapons for specs that can duel weild and say x boss drops your bis and you want 2 of the same weapon you can still roll for your second slot even if you have one equipped?

      That’s correct, dual wielding classes are exempt from this as far as weapons are concerned (assuming the weapon itself is not unique-equipped).
      ...
      We’re working on this, but ideally:
      If you control a 398 ‘Cool Dragon Ring’ with any tertiary, you cannot roll need on another 398 ‘Cool Dragon Ring’ without a tertiary. It only works one way. This is a little under the hood, but we’re working towards it being so that not all tertiaries are considered equal - it’s valid for a healer to want to roll for an item with leech or some players to roll on an item with a socket, even if they have that exact item and level but it has say, Speed or Indestructible. We’ll see how this works long-term but some version of that is the idea. And yes, Loot Spec will be set via the character pane under ‘Loot Options’ as it is currently.

      We're looking at the Storm-Eater customization option for the Renewed Proto-Drake coming in Dragonflight.
      The Gladiator mount in Dragonflight Season 1 is an actual Dragonriding mount which makes me believe it will work the same way for the Mythic Raszageth mount.
      Blizzard also added Renewed Proto-Drake: Embodiment of the Storm-Eater, a new type of item called Drakewatcher Manuscript that unlocks the new customization option for the Renewed Proto-Drake.





      The mount is a customization option tied to the Renewed Proto-Drake and cannot be customized.

      The map your characters hold when they open in-game maps has been updated in Dragonflight.
      Your characters hold a map whenever you open in-game maps. The map received a brand new model in the Dragonflight expansion. On the left, we see the new map, but the character is holding it upside down). On the right, we see the old map model from live servers.
