Patch 10.2.5 contains 3 cutscenes/cinematics that nicely wrap up the Dragonflight story. Check them out! The following post contains spoilers.

The first cinematic shows the aspects united at the Seat of Aspects in Valdrakken. Courtesy of Wowhead.

The second one shows Malfurion mysteriously appearing out of nowhere meeting Tyrande and Shandris Feathermoon. Courtesy of Wowhead.

The third one shows a meeting between Vyranoth and Iridikron who's working with the Harbinger to claim the Dark Heart. Courtesy of MMO-Champion.

First, I like the last one, it's actually making Iridikron more than a mustache twirling generic villain (HI JAILOR!).     He cares enough about his sister to talk things over, even if they're on opposing sides, and tries to warn her from fighting him.

Secondly...Wtf was up with the whole Ysera/Malfurion drama anyway, why did any of it happen?     Blizzard asspulls something about Malfurion should have died but Ysera interfered (not the case if you remember the questline...).    Then they swap places for...what?    What did Ysera do while she was in Azeroth for this time, why was there a need to shelf Malfurion for the Night Elf tree being created?     Feels like there was an abandoned plotline there.

He might still end up as mustache twirling villain. He held back against his sister, but we are still going to fight him at one point. Iridikron might be the boss of early tier or perhaps they will save him for the last, but he's most likely going to die. After all, we will be fighting some of the Void forces, but they are saving them up for Midnight expansion, so we must first deal with less important villains.

As for Malfurion, I think it was just an easy attempt to write him out. Ysera swapped places with him again, so he could leave Ardenweald.

Still begs the question, why did they want to write him out?    He's the leader of all the Night Elf Druids associated with the Dream.   In a tier where the Night Elves are growing a new world tree in the dream you would think he would be -heavily- involved.

Probably they had no idea what to do with him. It's the general problem with the lore. They often abandon many plots only because they don't fit with the current theme for whatever reason. It's also not unusual for them to resolve these plots way too quickly or in some unsatisfying way, like Malfurion's sudden return here. Perhaps they wanted the story to revolve more around dragons, so they didn't want more non-dragons involved?

What I'd really love to see (but watch the timer on your breath bar, i don't expect to see real soon) is impacts on other places, tiny new quest lines.

Ysera wasn't just "in ardenweald", she was rescued from desiccation by the Winter Queen personally, which made her the Winter Queen's soulbind.    WHY is "Envoy of Winter" just a big deer to kill?   Can any NightFae factioned SL players get some "and meanwhile" quests of their own?   Will we ever get to see the desiccated Wildseeds renewed?

Thros, the Drust.  Will we see the magickal side effects in Drustvar / BfA?

Vol'jin bein' a renewal spirit now by completely diff't stripes.  Them's a t'ing i wantz ta be seein', mon.  Plus we really did some root-cause cleanup at Nazmir... or did we.   Is Muah'zela the "mua" in "mwah hahaha"?

      Danta is back with another soloing guide, this time, covering how to obtain Glory of the Uldir Raider achievement that rewards a crawg mount!
      Glory of the Uldir Raider rewards the Bloodgorged Crawg mount and you must enter Uldir, the first Battle for Azeroth raid, to earn the achievement and get the mount.
      Here's what the mount looks like:
      Bloodgorged Crawg
      This crawg was left alone to feast on G'huun's corrupted blood and rot. He was so happy.

      The Uldir meta-achievement requires players to complete a total of 8 achievements (1 per boss). For more details, you can watch Danta's video linked below.
      In case you've missed it, there's also a guide on how to solo the Tomb raider meta-achievement.

      It's surprising to learn just how many racial abilities have been removed from WoW over the years (or changed/nerfed enough as to basically be a different ability). Today we have hirumaredx going over some of the most overpowered and fun ones.
      The first one triggers me greatly, as the idea of tauren just running around really fast instead of mounting was one of the reasons I even installed WoW back in the day in the first place! The video also talks about Priest-specific racial spells , some that don't fit the OP or fun description of the video, the Blood Elf ones you knew would be featured, and more.

      During one raid, we got to see the Fyr'alath bad luck protection buff work wonders, yielding 12 drops from a single Fyrakk kill.
      Sacolas shared an interesting shot on Reddit, showing 12 Fyr'alaths dropping simultaneously! This might just be the record for the most Fyr'alath the Dreamrender drops we've seen from a single kill to date. Sadly, the original poster missed out on the quest item, and looted instead a Greater Ember of Fyr'alath. Here's hoping for better luck next week!

      What's the highest number of Fyr'alaths you've seen drop from one kill? Let us know in the comments below!
