New Blood Elf Questline in Patch 9.2.5

Recommended Posts

8uVbQ3S.jpg

In this post, we're looking at the new Blood Elf questline coming in Patch 9.2.5. This post contains story spoilers.

The Scourge invades Quel'thalas, which leads Lady Liadrin and Lor'themar to rally their forces in an effort to fend off their attack.

We see Salandria, a Blood Elf Orphan quest giver from the Burning Crusade, taking part in it. Lady Liadrin was her mentor and she was the Blood Elf Orphan you had to take to various places during Children's Week.

You'll go to Bastion and then return to wipe the Scourge from the Dead Scar.

After successfully repelling the threat, Lor'themar says he will "inform the Ebon Blade of what transpired". Lor'themar suspects matters in Northrend "may be even worse".

The questline rewards the Green Hawkstrider mount and Blood Knight Armor.

Athelarius made a really great video with all the cutscenes and RP that you can watch below.

While we were taking care of our business in the Shadowlands, it appears the Scourge now run rampant across Azeroth without their master.

As you probably know, Tirisfal Glades is getting some updates as well with an encrypted map of the zone and a brand-new model of Calia Menethil.

Do you think Patch 10.0 will be Scourge-related? Let us know in the comments!

Il'gynoth whisper: The golden one claims a vacant throne. The crown of light will bring only darkness.”

Bolvar and Darion dialogue from 9.2.5 PTR in the picture. 

TLDR: Either Anduin or Tyralion or The new Arbiter will claim the Icecrown Citadel Throne in 9.2.5.

I mean...part of me thinks "Duh, they'll ring that nostalgia bell for all it's worth!"

But...it'd feel like a diet cola WotLK.    Arthas is now, truly, dead and gone forever.     As are the strongest undead lieutenants he had (Sindragosa, Anub, Kel'Thuzud, etc).     Anyone that took their place now would feel like a B-Team undead squad.   

Moreover we literally just came back from the realm of death, dealing with many "More Undeader" characters and seeing way too much undead Sylvannas.

Denathrius is not off the board.

Also, we've spent later half of WoD foghting demons only to get Legion and fight more demons, so it's nothing new.

Denathrius isn't really related to the undead scourage at all though, except in his dreadlord manipulation (which encompassed all of creation).    Moreover he has a slight out of body problem at the moment.

I'm sure it'll figure into a story sooner or later but it doesn't feel like a problem solved in an expansion preamble...I'd like to say but the dreadlord "Super Plan" has had so many loop holes they might just chuck a vat of forsaken goo into the maelstrom, then toss the sword in, and voila, instant Denathrius resurrected with powers over the undead.    Because reasons.

Well, they sort of "demoted" previous villains when they introduced the Jailer. Arthas is gone, but we don't know if they will ever pull some alternate universe again. Hopefully they won't. The Void Lords remain, arguably the most powerful villains for now, but based on their brief description, they can be as "interesting" as the Jailer Zovaal. 

As for Denathrius, not sure how much he can do without Zovaal. Maybe his Dreadlords are still loyal to him, but what they can do, if they don't have a large army anymore. Doesn't seem like a major threat.

Out of all Death-related powers left Denathrius is a grade above everyone else, even if the Primus is de-facto creator of undeath and, by extension, the Scourge, so I think he might as well wrestle control over it. Plus Dreadlords were already ruling it breifly under Archimonde. And as a stray thought, San'layn do look rather Venthyr-y.

As for lacking body... well. We've been to Zereth Mortis, and seen what it took to create an Eternal One from a scratch. Guess having a new body built isn't that much of a problem, especially if your Dreadlords are scouring the entire thing already and your being is intact.

      Content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      Blizzard clearly stated that guilds will remain single-faction in Patch 9.2.5 in a blue post about cross-faction instances.
      (Source)
      Guilds will remain single-faction, and random matchmade activities like Heroic dungeons, Skirmishes, or Random Battlegrounds will all remain same-faction (both because there is less faction-driven pressure around random groups, and to avoid compromising the opt-in nature of the feature by randomly placing a queuing orc in a group with a night elf). However, content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to break the system and create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The group went with a guild charter into Torghast and created a guild there. Probably any cross-faction content would work to replicate the bug. Players of the opposite faction were able to sign the guild charter it and when the guild was created, each player could invite players from their faction into the guild, meaning Alliance players could invite other Alliance players to join and vice-versa.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
       
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      Source.
      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      ...
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      ...
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.

      Content creator MGM found out during Patch 9.2.5 testing that cross-faction queue works for Timewalking raids, which is a neat feature!
      Cross-faction grouping comes with a few limitations; you must be Battle.net Friends with the person you're inviting or you both need to be members of the same cross-faction community. So far, we thought the feature was limited to Mythic+, raids, and Legacy raids.
      It turns out you can queue up for Timewalking raids cross-faction as well. You can learn more about cross-faction play in our overview.

      We're looking at some interesting Genn Greymane audio files from Patch 9.2.5. This post contains spoilers.
      The audio files play during the "Eyes of the Wolf" quest when Greymane sends you to meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken as they're gathering in Tirisfal Glades for an unknown purpose.
      Transcript
      Genn Greymane: You must don a disguise and travel deep into enemy territory. Do not let down your guard.
      Genn Greymane: In life, Calia Menethil endured more than her share of sorrow. She may not be a typical undead, but the Forsaken are not to be trusted. 
      Placeholder for tweet 1528767413696733184 Sylvanas no longer unites the Forsaken and your goal is to find out what they are up to. Genn also says "Calia is no typical undead". Do you think Genn will try to hunt her down or attack the Forsaken at their gathering?
      I wouldn't be surprised if he secretly planned a coup. After all, it was Sylvanas who killed his son Liam Greymane.
      Most of the Patch 9.2.5 content remains encrypted, so we don't know exactly what will transpire until the patch hits live servers.
