Garrosh Hellscream Cutscene in Sanctum of Domination

Recommended Posts

Garrosh returns in Patch 9.1 and here's the cutscene that plays in the new Sanctum of Domination raid. This post contains spoilers.

The former Warchief of the Horde makes a brief appearance in Sanctum of Domination during the Soulrender Dormazain encounter, but instead of repenting for his sins, he would proudly repeat every choice he made, which eventually turns him into dust.

What a waste.

Garrosh was prominent in Revendreth marketing, but we didn't see him there at all for basically no reason. Now he 'shows up' in a single raid boss and literally turns to dust after. Guess I'm never seeing my favourite character ever again.

Absolute Chad. This is the greatest story moment in years and it gets such a poor quality cutscene, though, which is terribly sad.

The voice actor deserves a raise.

The actual movie though...I'm pretty sure that was the generic "talking" animation, and all they did was a 3 part zoom in on the character model as he was talking.    Then the animation for the jump...ughhh..

... That's a choice of story writing... He's too chaotic to even repent, so we'll have him a "warrior's death" even in the after life, then just dust him and move on. I would have preferred they never even brought him up. Just leave him lost like COUNTLESS other heroes and villains.

It's about as well done as Arthas has been, despite the soul splitting of a morne blade being constantly referenced as critical and him getting thrown into the maw never to be seen or even referenced again.

His voice actor should be fine, he's already voicing several characters in game. It's in game cinematic, so it's not going to looks as good, still they could have done something more with Garrosh. At least he remained true to himself, even if that meant being orc supremacist.

At least this one is mildly amusing and consistent with the character. It wasn't that he was terrible as a villain. He was a reasonably consistent horrible racist person who would have worked fine as a stock evil villain, if only they had admitted that was what he was and not ruined so much of the levelling experience by having Horde players being forced to serve as henchmen to him and Alliance players having quests about boring and useless characters and losing for the sake of a story the devs kept denying was about a villain.

But that's kind of ok right? I mean at some point we HAVE to let some characters die. It's bad enough half the roster are in some form of "we can get them back if we want" status, from Illidan to Arthas, probably Sylvanas as well. I never liked Garrosh post-BC (I really liked him there) and flat out hated him in MoP, but damn that was a fitting end if you ask me.

You see that's all 100% true, and yet it was still 10x, or 120398218931x the cutscene that that abomination we got at the end was. It's really not about production quality or involved story, it's just character moments. Garrosh was a prick and he remained that to the fucking end. That's writing I can respect. Not this god damned everyone isn't really evil, "no hear us out, we just made up something that actually happened 10 years ago, honest" absolutely horseshit. If Sylvnas just said "Whelp, that's ok with me cos I'm on top and most of existence will also serve me, I can handle serving the big guy NP" and remained her evil, self-serving self I could 100% respect that. Or even if she went for the "crap, now I gotta remove this giant dude after he remakes reality so I can be on top" would be fine. But no. A magic word was said and Batman broke free of his bad ways.

It's even sadder when you think that the reason this cinematic was lower quality/had less budget put into it is that godddamn abomination in Oribos.... Yes I'm bitter. They managed to make me bitter about a game. SIGH.

But that's exactly the reason why I like the Garrosh ending. Because it IS an ending. Arthas is doomed to be dragged back at some point, and his legacy potentially shat on (and Illidan too). Garrosh should have been done after SoO, the trial was already too much, the escape was nonsense and then WoD.... Better to go out with his character (aka a giant asshole supremacist) intact than some future nonsense.

that's your own fault for not having a pre-approved favorite character as allowed by blizzard. The story isn't for you unless you like thrall, baine, jaina, anduin, or slyvanas.

      The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases Experience gains by 50% will return on October 4, making it an ideal time to level a new character for Dragonflight. The buff will be removed when Evokers become available for play.
      Currently, the rumored launch date of the pre-patch is October 25.
      (Source)
      If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
      Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
      * Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.

      Dragonflight Season 1 will go live the week of December 12, with all raid difficulties opening simultaneously. Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start.

      Dragonflight Season 1 goes live starting the week of December 12, bringing a new raid, an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons, and a new PvP Season. Mark your calendars for the road ahead and get ready to take on all new challenges.
      New Raid: Vault of the Incarnates
      Unravel the mysteries of the Vault of the Incarnates Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid players will experience in Dragonflight, featuring eight all-new boss encounters.
      The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.
      Raid Release Schedule:
      Week of December 12: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open with the weekly maintenance for each region Week of December 19: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 1 opens Week of January 2: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 2 opens Week of January 16: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 3 opens Cross-Faction Mythic and Hall of Fame Eligibility
      Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start. Hall of Fame entries will require at least 16 out of 20 raiders to be from the same guild and faction to be eligible for rewards.  See this support article for more information.
      New Dungeon Rotation
      Dragonflight Season 1 will feature a new dungeon rotation for Mythic+. Four dungeons from Dragonflight are included, and four returning dungeons from previous expansions. Here’s the full lineup:
      Ruby Life Pools The Nokhud Offensive The Azure Vault Algeth’ar Academy Halls of Valor (from the Legion™ expansion) Court of Stars (from the Legion™ expansion) Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion) Temple of the Jade Serpent (from the Mists of Pandaria™ expansion) Court of Stars, one of the dungeons returning in Dragonflight Season 1 M+ and PvP Season 1 will also begin the week of December 12 with regional maintenance. For Dragonflight, there will be no loot caps for Mythic+ on the first week, as Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open at the same time.
      Mythic+ Dungeon Affixes
      For Season 1, we're introducing a new affix, but the Necrotic and Inspiring affixes won't be making an appearance. More information on this new affix will be released at a later date.
      A Rewarding New Season Ahead
      Dragonflight Season 1 will feature familiar exclusive rewards such as the Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for raids, Keystone Master achievements, rewards for Mythic+, and Gladiator rewards for PvP.

      We finally have a firm date for WoW's next expansion release, as Dragonflight is coming on November 28th!
      (Source)
      Gather your friends and allies and make ready to soar into new adventures when the World of Warcraft: Dragonflight expansion goes live on November 28.
      The ancestral home of dragonkind—the Dragon Isles are awakening, and many long-forgotten secrets are waiting to be uncovered. Heed the call of the dragons as their ancient homelands are revealed once more, beckoning adventurers and treasure seekers alike to unravel the many mysteries waiting for them.
      Discover the Dragon Isles
      Discover the Dragon Isles and explore four new zones—the Waking Shores, roiling with elemental power; the vast expanse of the Ohn’ahran Plains; the frosty peaks of the Azure Span; and the majestic spires and temples of Thaldraszus—each themed around and revealing more about the ancient dragon aspects.
      Meet the Dracthyr Evoker
      Players will menace their foes (or empower their allies) as the new dracthyr Evoker, World of Warcraft’s first-ever race and class combination. Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind.  They’ll awake from their slumber in the Forbidden Reach, where they’ll take up their training to join the forces of dragonkind in the defense of the isles.
      Ascend to New Heights
      Dragonflight introduces Dragonriding, an all-new skill-based method of aerial movement that allows players to take to the skies on the back of their personal Dragon Isles Drake. Players will customize their drake as they progress through the expansion, collecting more appearance options and enabling them to fly farther and faster.
      New Talent System
      Dragonflight contains major updates to World of Warcraft classes, centering on the re-introduction of talent trees. The new talent system empowers players to make creative and meaningful talent choices without compromising their effectiveness—and most importantly, it gives them meaningful options at every level.
      Updated Professions
        Express yourself with the updated profession system with new features and tools to fuel the ambitions of crafters of any skill level.
      Customize Your User Interface

      Dragonflight Season 1 and Raid Schedule
      Dragonflight Season 1 goes live starting the week of December 12, bringing a new raid—Vault of the Incarnates— an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons and a new PvP Season. Mark your calendars for the road ahead, and get ready to take on all new challenges. [LEARN MORE]

      Dragonflight does not include Threads of Fate, but we've got some details on how alt leveling works in the new expansion.
      Leveling Your Main Character
      Leveling up the first character is linear, and you must complete the zones in the following order:
      The Waking Shores > Ohn'ahran Plains > The Azure Span > Thaldraszus.
      Leveling Your Alts
      When you complete the Dragonflight campaign on your main character, you can pick any of the four Dragon Isles zones for leveling and you will have World Quests and Side Quests unlocked on your alts.
      Thanks to MrGM for the screenshots.
