Shadowlands The Maw and Torghast Introduction Questline Changes (Story Spoilers)
21.09.2020 um 12:11
In the latest Shadowlands beta build, the introduction questlines for The Maw and Torghast, Tower of the Damned have received significant changes. Although Torghast is currently not available for testing, we are able to see what has changed in both those quests!
WARNING: SHADOWLANDS STORY SPOILERS AHEAD!
The Captured Leaders
In the Shadowlands pre-patch, two Alliance leaders and two Horde leaders are captured by the Forsworn forces: Thrall, Baine Bloodhoof, Jaina Proudmoore and Anduin Wrynn. The PvP achievements to kill faction leaders do reflect this change:
Für die Allianz!
, the achievement to kill Baine Bloodhoof, is replaced by
, which requires you to kill Rokhan in Orgrimmar.
Für die Horde!
Sturm auf Sturmwind
, the achievement to kill Anduin Wrynn, is replaced by
Exekution des Exarchen
, which requires you to kill Turalyon in Stormwind.
When we first arrive in the Shadowlands, we interact with all four captured leaders during the
. However, at the end of the questline, we barely escape The Maw before the Jailer's forces overwhelm us and the four leaders, and they end up staying behind to ensure we get out of the zone safely.
Old Maw Questline Version
In the previous version of the Maw questline, we would first head to the Maw and retrieve souls for our Covenant, and one of the retrieved souls would mention that they saw a mortal in The Maw with similar energy to ours. As we would return to the Maw, we finally meet with Ve'nari, who has Baine in her possession, and after settling an alliance with her, we would retrieve Baine back to Oribos. Ve'nari was a bit callous about Baine, making it sound like as if Baine was simply considered of no use and discarded by the Jailer.
Ve'nari: It is surprising what can you find lying around the Maw if you know where to look.
Ve'nari: Apparently this one didn't meet the Jailer's exacting specifications.
Ve'nari: No need to worry about his condition. He is content. And, you may leave here with him when our bargain is met.
New Maw Questline Version
In the new incarnation of the Maw questline, Baine is not with Ve'nari, and we are only required to go the Maw once in the Covenant campaigns. We see Baine briefly in
Regel 3: Vertrauen will verdient sein
, as we place the signaling beacon for Ve'nari.
Once the beacon is placed, a short cutscene plays, showing Baine surrounded by the corpses of many Forsworn. Baine is shown fighting against more Forsworn, being eventually overwhelmed by them, captured and brought to Torghast. After the cutscene, we kill the Forsworn that captured Baine and recover
. The mace's description mentions that it is coated with a black ooze, meaning that many Forsworn were smashed by the Tauren chieftain.
Ve'nari also recognizes that Baine put up quite a fight against the Forsworn. In the next quest,
, she mentions that we have plenty of time to rescue Baine from Torghast, as souls there are tortured for centuries. However, as Torghast is currently closed on the Beta servers, we currently cannot progress further into the questline.
The Torghast questline has also changed in the most recent beta build. In the previous version of the questline, after bringing Baine back to Oribos, we would venture into Torghast to save Thrall and Jaina. After Jaina is rescued, Bolvar Fordragon would deem too dangerous to go for Anduin so soon.
In the new version of the Torghast questline, we rescue Baine, Thrall, and Jaina by crossing through all of Torghast's wings. After those three are rescued, we start our search for Anduin on the Twisting Corridors, Torghast's randomized mode.
As Torghast is currently closed on beta, we cannot progress through this questline to see what happens, but we do have the new Torghast quests datamined. The final quest,
Der gefangene König
, implies we do not rescue Anduin for the time being, and peering into Torghast via the Helm of Domination does something to bring the Shadowlands closer to the brink of extinction.
- Find a way into Torghast, Tower of the Damned.
Die Suche nach Baine
- Enter and explore Arkoban Hall, then slay its warden and rescue Baine Bloodhoof.
- Enter Torghast and explore Skoldus Hall, Fracture Chambers and The Soulforges.
- Find Jaina Proudmoore in Torghast.
- Enter Torghast and explore Coldheart Interstitia, Mort'regar and the Upper Reaches.
- Find Thrall within Torghast, Tower of the Damned.
Spuren des Löwen
- Enter Torghast and explore the Twisting Corridors for any signs of Anduin.
Der gefangene König
- Use the Helm of Domination to peer into Torghast once more.
