Dragonflight Developer Rountable with Ion Hazzikostas and Steve Danuser
, hosted by Taliesin of
Taliesin & Evitel
, Steve confirmed that Death Knights will have some unique text when interacting with Alexstrazsa in Dragonflight.
I'm thinking a lot about dragons and our experience with dragons, and being apparently quite a prominent character in the upcoming expansion. But then I think I've got a Death Knight and I kind of killed all her kids. Is that something that she's going to hold against me?
Alexstrasza's seen a lot of carnage done to dragons you know both from other dragons and from the mortal races of the world. She is an optimistic person - she is a person who is looking towards the future of her kind and the future of Azeroth and those things - but she will definitely acknowledge some of the hard feelings towards some of those quests, and I think that if you played a death knight and engaged with some of that content then she might have some distinctive things to say to you that she wouldn't necessarily say to the random elven hunter or whoever else might come along. We we really like doing that kind of conditional request text - that if you've got a particular history that's relevant to a character, that they call that out. So we're being mindful of that in the Dragon Isles, with Alexstrasza and other characters as well.
The Death Knight's History with Alexstrasza
Taliesin is referring to a Death Knight Class Order Hall quest from Legion, during which Death Knights obtained their class mount - the
To obtain this mount, Death Knights were required to raise a mighty red dragon named Kyranastraz, whose bones were lost somewhere on a glacier to the north of Icecrown. At the Lich King Bolvar Fordragon's command, they headed to Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight, where they threatened and even strangulated members of the Bronze and Red Dragonflights while interrogating them about Kyranastraz's final resting place.
When the dragons still refused to help, Death Knights entered the Ruby Sanctum, where the Bolvar invited them to kill as many dragons as they wanted to - including whelps.
Spare who you will, or slay them all... the choice is yours.
On the PTR, there was even an achievement for slaughtering every last dragon in the Ruby Sanctum. While this was removed before the servers went live, with
Blizzard claiming they never intended to keep the achievement
to begin with, Bolvar still offers a special line to players who decide to go through with the slaughter.
The Lich King says: You are empty inside, just like me.
Either way, Alexstrazsa, whose dragonflight is all about Life, cannot be happy with the powers of Death raising one of her own.
Do you know why the red dragonflight seeks to prevent us from finding our prize?
The bones of a great red dragon teem with the essence of life, even decades after its passing.
You will consume this life essence, blight it, and turn it to undeath.
And then you will raise a dragon.
The Story of Deathlord's Vilebrood Vanquisher
During the Shadowlands Night Fae campaign storyline, players visit Alexstrazsa at Ysera's request, and Death Knights in particular receive a
rather pointed reaction from her
<Alexstrasza's eyes narrow. Her teeth and claws seem to gleam just a tad more sharply.>
You have a great deal of nerve coming here, <name>.
What do you wish to take from the Red Dragonflight this time?
