Recommended Posts

After players complete the Shadowlands Epilogue in Patch 9.2, many important characters react to what had transpired.

Shadowlands Epilogue Dialogues

Many important lore characters react to what happened to Sylvanas when you play through the final campaign of the 9.2 story. The dialogues also contain spoilers about the future of some characters post-Shadowlands.

Tyrande

The first one's Tyrande speaking in Oribos. She's accompanied by Maiev Shadowsong and Shandris Feathermoon. This is her "Stay A While and Listen" option while talking to a Horde player.

Tyrande Whisperwind: The Banshee's penance will save countless lost souls. A fate that would not have come to pass had I slain her in Ardenweald. Perhaps that is why Mother Moon stayed my hand. The Horde inflicted a grievous wound upon my people, <name>. You may never earn my trust... but you have my thanks for setting things right.

Tyrande thanks you, but says you as a Horde player will never gain her trust.

Sylvanas' Sisters

The second conversation is between Alleria and Veeresa Windrunner. They talk about the pain Sylvanas inflicted upon the kaldorei and how she will atone for it.

Vereesa Windrunner: For so long, there had been little more than hatred and malice in our sister's eyes. To at last see a glimmer of the Sylvanas we knew...

Alleria Windrunner: I had ceased hoping for such a thing. I am pleased we had a chance to speak with her, Vereesa.

Vereesa Windrunner: I only wish we'd had more time!

Alleria Windrunner: As do I. But if she stays true to her word and sees this obligation through, perhaps one day we will.

Vereesa Windrunner: It will never be like it was before. The pain she inflicted upon the kaldorei... upon the world... how could she ever answer for it?

Alleria Windrunner: I'm not certain she can. But if her penance brings any measure of peace to those she wronged, at least it is a start.

Vereesa Windrunner: You're right, Lady Sun. Our family has endured so much darkness. We must find a way to cling to hope.

Alleria Windrunner: Yes, Little Moon. Mother, Father, Lirath... they are only memories. We thought our sister was as well. But now.. we shall see.

Genn Greymane and Anduin Wrynn

anduin.png

Genn's really happy to reunite with Anduin again. Anduin confesses there were times he thought he'd never escape the Jailer's control. He blames himself for everything he inflicted when the Jailer controlled him.

We also learn that Anduin won't return to Azeroth immediately and has plans to stay there longer.

Genn Greymane: I can't tell you how relieved I am to see you safe, my king. Even after reading Jaina's reports, I can scarcely imagine the horrors you endured.

Anduin Wrynn: There were times I thought I would never escape the Jailer's control. The things he made me do...

Genn Greymane: Those actions were not your fault! You cannot blame yourself.

Anduin Wrynn: I... I should have been stronger...

Genn Greymane: Anduin Wrynn, you are the strongest man I know. And when you return to Stormwind, the whole kingdom will tell you the same.

Anduin Wrynn: I can't go back, Genn. Not yet.

Genn Greymane: But the people need--

Anduin Wrynn: Turalyon will keep the Alliance safe in my absence. And I know you'll watch over everyone we care about... Old Wolf!

Genn Greymane: Of course. Take whatever time you need. And when you're ready... please, come home.

Lor'themar Theron and Genn Greymane

The conversation between Lor'themar and Greymane is quite tense you could say. Genn asks him if Lor'themar hopes for Sylvanas to return from the Maw, but Lor'themar assures him the banshee that almost brought the Horde to ruin isn't his friend.

Lor'themar Theron: Well met, King Greymane.

Genn Greymane: Regent Lord.

Lor'themar Theron: I hope the fate of Sylvanas Windrunner brings the Alliance some measure of peace.

Genn Greymane: Peace? You stand in the Shadowlands, Regent Lord. Ask the dead she sent here whether they feel peace. As for me, that's something I will never know. Not while the monster who killed my son still endures.

Lor'themar Theron: I understand. My people are haunted by the deeds of monsters as well.

Genn Greymane: And what of you? Are you hoping that the ranger-general you served comes back from the Maw? Or would you prefer having your warchief again?

Lor'themar Theron: I spent most of my life alongside the Windrunner family. Sylvanas was my hero... and my friend. But the banshee who nearly led the Horde to ruin was neither.

Genn Greymane: Then you shouldn't have followed her commands. Good day, Regent Lord.

Lor'themar Theron: Good day, King Greymane.

Baine Bloodhoof and Lor'themar Theron

baine.png

Baine and Lor'themar talk about who'd they wish to meet in the Shadowlands before they return to Azeroth. While Baine doesn't need to meet his father because his spirit is with him, Lor'themar would like to have a word with Kael'thas to find out if he regrets his decisions.

Lor'themar Theron: To think we now stand on the other side of the veil. That those we lost await us here among these countless afterlives. Is there... anyone you would seek out, Baine? For one last conversation before you return to the land of the living?

Baine Bloodhoof: No need to spare my feelings, Lor'themar. You are asking if I wish to find my father. The truth is... I do not need to. His spirit is always with me, wherever I go, whatever I do. Guiding me just as his ancestors guided him. And what of you? Is there someone you would visit, given this chance?

Lor'themar Theron: Prince Kael'thas. Long have I held the title of Regent Lord, all the while wondering if I was truly suited to lead my people. I would ask the last liege of Silvermoon if he regrets the choices he made. A chance to mend old wounds, and perhaps feel that the torch has truly been passed.

Baine Bloodhood: A feeling I understand all too well. I pray your conversation brings you the peace you seek, my friend.

Arbiter Pelagos and Kleia

pelagos.png

Pelagos talks to Kleia about how brief the mortal life is, undeserving of eternal torment in the Maw for actions within such a short span of time. Both discuss the injustice of the Maw and Pelagos vows that never again will a mortal sound be sent to the Maw, as all deserve a chance at redemption.

Arbiter Pelagos: When my service to the Kyrian began and I first learned of the Maw, the knowledge filled me with sorrow. A mortal life is so incredibly brief. I questioned whether any actions taken within that span of time could truly be worthy of eternal torment.

Kleia: I confess that as an aspirant, I did not think of such things... only of duty. It was not until I witnessed Uther's plight that I recognized the injustice of the Maw.

Arbiter Pelagos: Never again will a mortal soul be sent to its depths. All deserve a chance at redemption. Recent events have shown us that a single mortal soul--in fact, every mortal soul--can alter the course of eternity.

Kleia: Indeed... for good or for ill. In the end, it was mortals and their decisions that shaped the fate of the Shadowlands.

Arbiter Pelagos: As Arbiter, I will take that lesson to heart. Every soul will be treated with compassion, and will be given a voice in which afterlife awaits them.

You misquoted the actual text, it reads:

Kleia: Even Nomi?

Pelagos: ...No, not Nomi.

 

Also I have to cringe a bit at how blind-eyed determined they are to keep the Horde/Alliance conflict limping along.      Literally every warmonger is dead.    Genn and Tyrande may distrust the Horde but they're not going to start something.     Baine, Anduin, Thrall, Jaina, etc etc etc are all for peace.     But...for some reason...the war continues.    Despite the looming cosmic horrors, ancient demons, and eldritch monsters that threaten the world every tuesday and require joining forces against.

I think it's rather weird how most of these characters were missing and only show up just at the end. I wish they would have done more with characters like Alleria and Veressa, given their relation to Sylvanas.

Genn won't start something. Stormheim disagrees

Recent lore has had Genn going a bit softer, what with actually meet and greeting with the forsaken (before Sylvannas killed those forsaken).    He also would very likely defer to Anduin's judgement.

      Blizzard have decided to scrap the initially planned button that would re-configure the pillars inside the Enigma Arena, and it will launch as it it right now on the 9.2.5 PTR, with a static configuration. 
      Engima Arena (Source)
      As we previously mentioned, our initial intention was to release the Enigma Crucible with a unique mechanic, a central button that allowed players to manipulate the pillar configuration throughout a match. During implementation, we found some concerns like pathing and line-of-sight issues that could have sporadically affected players and some of their class abilities. So to provide the best play experience and avoid potential frustrations, we have decided to go forward with the version that is currently available on the 9.2.5 PTR which has a single pillar configuration that remains locked throughout the match. We do not plan to pursue the initial version at this time.
      Thank you for your understanding and we’ll see you in the Arena.

      We're checking back in with Mythic+ and have a fresh old face back in the top 3, with two of the classic M+ specs setting up shop at the very top, and Destruction having a look in as well.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      These past 2 weeks were:

      Fortified, Spiteful, Necrotic
      Tyrannical, Inspiring, Quaking (and Encrypted)
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top remains the same as it's been for a LONG time, with Subtlety reigning over everyone, we see a big shift in No.2 with Fire returning to the top after a long absence, pushing Destruction out of the way. Survival drops 2 spots as the AoE nerf takes effect, while Windwalkers remain steady in 5th. The numbers drop off quite a bit after the top 5, and we see Frost Mage and Demonology switch spots, as well as Fury and Havoc rise up together and push Marksmanship down into the final top 10 slot. The bottom remains pretty much identical, with Rogues, Druids and Shamans clustering up together for warmth.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Interestingly enough, Fire is actually doing worse than last time we checked in the generalist bracket, as it drops 1 spot down to 4, with Destruction taking its place in the top 3, as Subtlety and Survival stay on top. Windwalker moves up two and claims the final top 5 spot, pushing Marksmanship and Demonology down one, while the tail end of the top 10 remains the same.
      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      +15 Keys
      Old faithful, the +15 bracket is as solid as a rock and just as interesting, as you'd need a microscope to see the differences here. Within these microscopic changes, we see Survival remain on top as Windwalker takes 2nd from Subtlety, and Arcane actually moves up quite a bit and slips into the top 10.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      +20 Keys
      Windwalkers are making some moves in the high keys, as they take 2nd from Destruction and knock Subtlety down to 4th. Fury is moving up for a change, after a long period of stagnation all over, taking 7th and replacing Demo, while Enhancement and Assassination make some serious moves up, as they round out the top 10 four spots higher than last time we checked.
      Mythic+20 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.


      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well, which have tier lists, dungeon rankings and more.

      Although the vast majority of quests surrounding Calia Menethil are encrypted in Patch 9.2.5, there's one named "Eyes of the Wolf" which isn't. This post contains mild spoilers.
      "The Eyes of the Wolf" quest isn't currently encrypted on the PTR. The player must meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken because they're gathering in Tirisfal for an unknown purpose...
      Quest Objectives
      Meet Calia Menethil in Brill, Tirisfal Glades.
      Speak to Gilnean Greymage for a teleport. Quest Description
      An alarming rumor has reached me, thanks to our spies. The Forsaken are mustering in Tirisfal Glades. For what purpose, I do not know. Notably, Calia Menethil has gone there as well. We must know more of what they are up to, now that the accursed Banshee Queen no longer unites them. Go, don a disguise and see what you can discover. Observe everything. And if there is an opportunity to gain their trust and learn more, do as they ask. I eagerly await your report.
      We saw Calia Menethil beside other Horde leaders in the Shadowlands intro experience. Will Calia Menethil lead the Forsaken in Patch 9.2.5?

      The Forsaken story remains a mystery because Blizzard uses more sophisticated encryption techniques in Patch 9.2.5 that hide entire stories, maybe even an Allied Race.

      Blizzard made some changes to the new Season 4 affix in the latest Patch 9.2.5 build. In this post, we are recapping all the information available about Shrouded so far.
      The new Season 4 affix is no longer called Disguised. It was renamed to Shrouded and the placeholder description was updated to the following:
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.

      Oribos has been updated with portals to three locations in Patch 9.2.5 to make traveling between the dungeons in Shadowlands Season 4 more seamless.
      Season 4 dungeon rotation includes dungeons from previous expansions, which is why Blizzard added 3 new portals on the upper floor of Oribos. The portals are located between the Flight Master and the gate to Ardenweald.

      A new NPC named Ta'piks <Exotic Portals> is surrounded by 3 portals.
      The first one leads to Gorgrond, the second one to Karazhan, and the third one will port you to Mechagon.
