Turalyon and Stormwind Guards React to Dracthyr Presence in Dragonflight
On the Dragonflight Alpha servers, part of the introduction questline to the expansion is available for testing for Alliance characters. Much of the questline has placeholder tags, but we found some interesting reactions from both common Stormwind citizens and the current Lord Commander of the Alliiance, High Exarch Turalyon.
Stormwind Guard Reactions
During the Dragonflight intro questline, you fly around Stormwind to gather members for the Dragonscale Expedition, the joint Alliance and Horde expedition team to survey the Dragon Isles. As you recruit members for the expedition, you can overhear the city guards reacting to the increased dragon activity.
I prefer hunting dragons, not befriending them.
Those things will ruin this city!
The only good dragon's a dead one!
Doing the introduction questline as a Dracthyr summons even more aggressive exchanges from the guards.
Go back to your home. Filthy beast.
I can smell those things from here. Disgusting.
They don't belong here. I'd love to turn those horns into a nice little trophy.
Stormwind has been victim to dragons multiple times over the years - from the enslaved Red Dragons used by the Orcs during the Second War, to Deathwing's partial destruction of Stormwind during the events of Cataclysm, it is not unreasonable to expect the common Stormwind citizen to be aggressive towards anything dragons.
Shaw Briefing Turalyon on Dragons
Later on the questline, right before your expedition leaves for the Dragon Isles, you can find Mathias Shaw briefing Turalyon on the increased dragon activity.
Turalyon: Spymaster Shaw, it seems the dragons are among us once again.
Shaw: Yes, Lord Commander. We haven't seen this level of draconic activity since the Cataclysm.
Turalyon: I've read the SI:7 reports on the black dragon Onyxia. How she infiltrated Stormwind in the guise of a noble and sewed division and chaos.
Shaw: Indeed. She masterminded an elaborate scheme to seize control of the throne.
Turalyon: The Dragon Queen Alexstrasza's intentions appear honorable. But can we be certain that the same is true for all of dragonkind?
Shaw: It is... wise to be cautious. I'll order extra security patrols.
Turalyon: We need more than spies and guards on the city walls. Enlist the expertise of our mages. I want a foolproof method to see through those visages the dragons wear.
Turalyon: We've put too much effort into rebuilding the strength of the Alliance to see it undone. Am I clear, Spymaster?
Turalyon's expedition to Draenor that led into his disappearance into the Twisting Nether happened during the events of the Second War, long before any positive dragon interactions. That combined with Turalyon's reading of Onyxia, and how much damage she caused to Stormwind and the Alliance as the dreaded advisor Lady Katrana Prestor, has seemingly sent Turalyon into a state of caution, going as far as employing mages to discover a way to see dragons through their humanoid visages.
