The Lore of Battle for Azeroth
Saurfang's Last Stand
The Battle for Lordaeron follows the Burning of Teldrassil. It is the Alliance's counter-attack on the Horde.
During the battle, Sylvanas unleashes Blight on the battlefield, killing both Alliance and Horde soldiers alike. Then, she raises all the corpses as skeletons to fight for her. Saurfang, growing disgusted with Sylvanas' actions, exchanges tense words with her in which he feels her actions have no honor and she mocks him by talking about raising his corpse to serve her. The Alliance finds Saurfang undefended and captures him to take back to the Stockades.
This is the following dialogue in the cutscene:
Saurfang: No! I demand an honorable death!
Anduin: My father once said that Varok Saurfang embodied what was best about the Horde -- its sense of honor. He admired you for that, and so do I.
Anduin: There is no honor in this.
Saurfang: That is not for an Alliance king to decide.
Anduin: At the moment, it is.
Anduin: Take him to the Stockades. Treat him with the respect he is due.
Anduin: When I return, we will speak of honor...and how it may yet be reclaimed.
Saurfang: If...you return.
This cutscene takes place after Saurfang is defeated by the Alliance:
Saurfang: I had to see it for myself. Was this your plan all along? Is this how you meant to achieve victory? This...honorless travesty?
Sylvanas: Honor means nothing to a corpse, Saurfang. You have the luxury of underestimating death, but it is something with which I am intimately familiar. Maybe you don't care if your people die so long as it is honorable. But to me, this Horde is worth saving. Anyone who disagrees does not deserve to stand among us. So die your warrior's death, High Overlord Saurfang. It means little to me. Perhaps I will raise your broken body to serve me once more. Or perhaps you will have a chance to say hello to your son.
Anduin: Stand aside, Saurfang. This war is not yours to bear alone, and I have no honor in killing you.
Saurfang: Your father was a man of honor, boy. You know nothing of the sort.
Saurfang: I will NEVER stand down! I eat, sleep, and live by the sword. What price have you paid for your people?
Anduin: My father gave everything for the Alliance. The question is, are you willing to do the same?
Saurfang: MY LIFE FOR THE HORDE!
Escaping the Stockades
Sylvanas sends the player on a secret risky mission, along with First Arcanist Thalyssra and Rohkan. You must break out Princess Talanji from the Stormwind Stockades. Here you encounter Saurfang as well, who refuses to rejoin the Horde under Sylvanas and would rather stay in his cell.
When the Princess is rescued, we also free the Prophet Zul, who instigated the Zandalari's aggression in Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria. The Alliance is alerted to the Horde's escape and gives chase throughout the city of Stormwind. At one point, it seems than Jaina has them cornered, but Zul sets the city of Stormwind ablaze, using a stray torch dropped in the middle of the city, causing Jaina to turn back and save the city instead of capturing the captives.
In this cutscene, Zul talks to Jaina:
Zul the Prophet: Do not be so hasty, now.
Zul the Prophet: You can try to subdue us, and likely succeed. But do you have time to waste?
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: No... it can't be.
Zul the Prophet: Seems a mage of your...skill...could be very useful right now, hm?
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: This isn't over!

Roughly halfway through questing in Zuldazar, The Prophet Zul leads a coup against the aging King Rastakhan, allying with the Mogu and sacrificing loa to gain more power. During the coup, Rastakhan is grievously wounded, hovering between life and death. We call upon the loa of kings, Rezan, as well as the loa of death, Bwonsamdi, to return him to full strength and spirit.
It is later revealed through questing that the Prophet Zul is in league with Queen Azshara and the Blood God G'huun.
King Rastakhan: No! Habutu!
King Rastakhan: Traitor! Seize her!
Zul the Prophet: You should have listened to Talanji.
Zul the Prophet: You have grown stagnant, old friend. You let our kingdom rot and decay. But I have forseen de troll empire rising again.
Zul the Prophet: No more treaties with outsiders... No more bargains with loa. Blood is our path now...De path of G'HUUN!
Yazma: Should we go after dem?
Zul the Prophet: No. In time, dey will come to us.
Zuldazar - Rezan Battle
Once restored, Rastakhan leads the charge against Zul and learns of the plan to resurrect the first king of Zuldazar, similar to Zul's decision to resurrect the Thunder King in Pandaria. However, Rastakhan and Rezan are unable to stop Zul when confronted at the resting place of the Zandalari kings. Instead, Zul murders Rezan, capturing the dinosaur in a blood trap, and we end up fighting the fallen loa later in the dungeon. The loss of the loa Rezan explains why the Prelates of Rezan, essentially Zandalari Paladins, have lost their powers and therefore why Zandalari Allied Race players cannot play Paladins.
Yazma: Your visions had best be right about dis.
Rezan: You trespass upon sacred ground.
Zul the Prophet: Ah, he arrives. De loa of...hmm...
Zul the Prophet: What do we call you now?
Rezan: Mind your tongue, traitor.
Zul the Prophet: Rezan, Rezan...
Zul the Prophet: Do you not understand?
Zul the Prophet: I am not your subject.
Zul the Prophet: and you have no place among kings.
Zul the Prophet: De time of da loa...is done.
Zul the Prophet: De hour of blood approaches.
