Ny'alotha opened today and we have two cinematics. The first one plays just before the penultimate boss and we see Wrathion and N'Zoth. The second one involves your character and the Kamehameha-esque destruction of N'Zoth.
UPDATE: The raid finale cutscene has been unlisted on YouTube.
Wrathion & N'Zoth Cinematic
After the fight against Xanesh, Azshara reveals her plans and tells us how she wanted to stab N'Zoth with Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire, but ultimately, she gives the blade to us and Wrathion uses it to stab the God of the Deep and summon Carapace of N'Zoth.
Raid Finale Cutscene
Battle for Azeroth ends with a short cutscene and a 28 second-long cinematic where your character destroys N'Zoth thanks to the help of Heart of Azeroth.
We have some truly giant hotfixes for you today, with some Vulpera fixes, Vale Assault tweaks, adjustments to DKs, Druids, Hunters and Monks, as well as the expected raid fixes (including the bosses now rewarding artifact power properly), Infinite Stars takes another 25% hit and more!
