This month's lore spotlight with Nobbel87 will walk you through the thrilling finale of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign! Learn what happens in the story from all perspectives. As usual, we'll transcribe Nobbel's video and then provide links to useful Wowhead quests and articles if you'd like to read more about this topic.
Hello everyone! Patch 8.2.5 brings us the conclusion of the War Campaign, after Rise of Azshara took us to Nazjatar where the sea swallowed up Alliance and Horde fleets, we faced Azshara, and inadvertently freed the release of the Old God N'Zoth. Together we stood against Azshara and together we shall stand against Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner who’s taken the Horde in a direction not all agree with...
Saurfang: Anduin, Sylvanas' actions have threatened us all. Day by day, her power grows. If our world is to survive, we must strike while we still can. Meet with me, and we will speak.
Anduin: So few.
Saurfang: How many can you provide?
Anduin: Enough for one final assault. If that fails...we're done. If we end her reign, what kind of warchief will you be?
Saurfang: The Horde are joined at birth to blood. Tainted by corruption. The road that led to the Dark Portal was long and wide. Paved with the bones of innocents. We called it the Path of Glory. That was the great lie upon which the Horde was founded. If anything we did was honorable--Thrall, Vol'jin--they were not the true heirs to Blackhand's bloody legacy. Sylvanas Windrunner IS.
Anduin: No, no, this is the Horde, led by you. Someone that has--
Saurfang: Honor...I've never known honor. They deserve more. The Horde is doomed to be shackled by the chains of the past.
Anduin: The Horde has no exclusive claim to regrets. Arthas, Daelin...The ghosts of the past haunt us as well.
Saurfang: We could not fill the chasm between the Horde and Alliance if we labored a thousand years. You know this.
Anduin: Then what are we fighting for?
Saurfang: Soldiers, on your feet!
Anduin: Start breaking camp, immediately.
Zekhan: Lord Saurfang?
Saurfang: Zek'han, where is our home?
Saurfang: Not our city...our home.
Anduin: And ours?
Anduin: Right now, there are only two forces in this world that matter. One bent on harming our world...
Saurfang: And one that will protect her!
Zekhan: So, what are we doing?
Saurfang: Breaking the cycle.
This cinematic has a really cool conversation reminiscing on the path that both factions walked and how it almost seems impossible to bridge a gap between these two forces. Despite some characters trying very hard to get a peace going, time and time again we see the faction war rise up and take the stage.
Many players also wonder if this means we’ll see the end of factions all together. Nothing’s impossible, but if you’d ask me...I’d say that storywise they can definitely do this. Think back to Legion, for example, where we focused more on working together in our Order Halls as classes rather than split as Alliance and Horde. Something like that could definatly play out, but I wonder if the game itself offers the possibility to do this. There are so many mechanics like mounts, reputations, capital cities... you might see a massive shift in an RTS, but in an MMORPG it might be a little bit more difficult. Not to mention that faction pride is still a thing. Some would hate for their beloved Alliance or Horde to just disappear, but nothing’s impossible.

The Story Leading Up to Patch 8.2.5
For the story right now we know that Varok Saurfang initially joined Sylvanas on her plans of conquest leading up to Battle for Azeroth. She was able to convince him that time breaks all bonds. They might be able to get a peace going with King Anduin, but who knows how long that would last. It was much better to take care of their enemy once and for all to secure a future for the Horde.
Plans were made to strike down the leaders of the Night Elves, occupy Teldrassil and prevent the Alliance from retaliating. Plans that didn’t exactly work out. Despite having Malfurion right where she wanted him, Sylvanas did not take the kill. Instead she told Saurfang to do it, but the old soldier could not as it was not an honorable way for Malfurion to die. Empty-handed he returned to the Warchief, who incensed that the Night Elves were given a sign of hope, decided to burn down the tree instead, an act described as the genocide of the Night Elves in the novellas.
Afterwards, the Alliance was free to retaliate, striking in the Eastern Kingdoms. The Siege of Lordaeron saw Sylvanas taunt and push Saurfang ever further until he couldn’t take it anymore. This was not the Horde as he envisioned it. This was not their way. Left behind he tried to find his honorable death in battle, instead Anduin decided to imprison him. Through the course of cinematics in Battle for Azeroth, we traced Saurfang's character growth as he set out to save the world from the Banshee Queen. A road that took Saurfang to Outland where he managed to recruit Thrall to join their cause.
Meanwhile Baine Bloodhoof also disliked Sylvanas' actions, but for the sake of his people, he decided to stick around. But When his Warchief decided to resurrect Derek Proudmoore, Jaina’s brother who died defending the world against the first Horde invasion, Baine could no longer just go with it. Time and time again Sylvanas brought dishonor to their faction. So it was that he liberated Derek and brought him back to Jaina. Heroes amongst the Horde remained ever-loyal to their Warchief though. She was well aware of what was going on behind her back so Baine is imprisoned in Patch 8.1.5 only to be liberated by Saurfang, Thrall, Jaina and Shaw in Patch 8.2. Now they prepare to break the cycle and stand together for the fate of Azeroth yet those champions that stayed loyal to their Warchief are still around.

Preparations for the Fourth War
Nothing escapes the gaze of Sylvanas' dark rangers. They’ve been keeping an eye on Saurfang and Thrall after they let them escape and are well aware that they now conspire with our sworn enemies. Orgrimmar must rally its forces and make ready for a siege. Time to talk to those still loyal to the horde like Overlord Geya’rah, leader of the Mag’har Orcs who were recruited from an alternate reality. It’s very nice to see that while you’re moving about the city, many of the citizens are actually discussing the current situation. Is it the right call to stick with their Warchief? Who’s to blame for all of this? Should they side with Thrall who abandoned them to Garrosh? Or should they side with Saurfang, branded a traitor or just ride it out and see where all of this goes?
Gallywix is also still hanging around, but not for very long. Doing some very important...paperwork...but the Warchief's mechs are ready to go. And last but not least, we talk to Eitrigg who we know has been having secrets meetings with Saurfang. A quick death would be far too lenient punishment for his treachery. We confront him on his deeds and he’s actually happy to no longer have to lie. We’re even offered one last chance to come with him. To leave this madness behnd and stand with Saurfang. Those that stick to their choices and remain with the Warchief must fight Eitrigg and bring him back chained and all to Nathanos.
Meanwhile over at the rebellion the other two Windrunner sisters, Alleria and Vereesa, have some thoughts about their sister.
“King Wrynn, may we speak?”
“Our sister is patient. She knows we have precious few soldiers left. While we lay siege to Orgrimmar, she will wittle away our numbers. But Sylvanas isn ot the only threat we face. The Old god has been freed. I can hear his whispers..sense his unseen tendrils writhing all around us.”
“I know, Alleria. What are you suggesting?”
“Sylvanas commands what may be the only army capable of defeating N’zoth. for the sake of Azeroth...perhaps we should stand aside and let her.”
“Your sister will not fight for us, Alleria. When Sylvanas realized the war was on the cusp of ending, she lured both fleets into Azshara’s hands. Not to find victory, but to meet death.’
“In the end, death claims us all. Eitrigg told me those were among the last words SYlvanas spoke to Vol’jin.”
“We cannot wage two wars. Sylvanas must fall. Here. Now. Before all is lost.
” “It shall be so, my king. Vereesa and I will scout her line for weaknessess. Good luck. To all of us.”
A Windrunner reunion was requested by fans for quite a while and we kind-of got our wish granted in a comic, "Three Sisters." Sylvanas actually had her rangers ready and waiting for an ambush to take her sisters out, but in the last moment decided not to go through with it, murmuring "In the end they’ll all serve death. In the end, they will all serve me."
As for Alleria, she has taken in the powers of the void and now leads the Void Elves. The Void whispers to her constantly, like when she saw Sylvanas, it whispered that she’s dangerous, a threat that must be ended. You might wonder if the Void wants Sylvanas gone so badly, perhaps her plans are not that bad. To that I would compare it to Sargeras and his Burning Legion. He too was fighting against the Void, tried to prevent their plans of corrupting a slumbering titan, but his course of action would have meant the destruction of us anyways. It’s possible that the Banshee Queen might work against the goals of the Old Gods, but her methods are still not in the best interest for all of us.
So Alleria’s connection to N’zoth is quite strong and with the Old God released, the whispers only became louder. Who knows how that might play out in the future. In this moment we need to clear out the canon, clear out the path for our forces to reinforce the vanguard. Tinkmaster Overspark and Gazlowe continue their co-operation beyond just Mechagon and their invention makes our trip to the Gates of Orgrimmar a lot easier.

Gates of Orgrimmar
In the meantime the loyalists have been working hard to prepare themselves. Citizens are rallied to take up arms while any propaganda spreading all manner of lies is removed from the streets. Any citizen that has a problem with that is put the to the sword while the siege engines waiting outside are sabotaged with bombs. The rebellion is aware of the sabotage and makes sure to remove any suspicious crates while also slaying any suspicious technicians or loyalists assassins hiding amongst their ranks.
Meanwhile, Wrathion's agents are also hiding and watching the events play out; the black dragon prince is always keeping an eye on things...
“Genn, we need you and your best soldiers to flank the city from the western gate.”
“And leave you here, unguarded? With them?”
“if I wanted to harm him, I’d have done it in the Stockades.”
“No one knows Orgrimmar’s defenses better than Saurfang. We need to trust each other if we are to succeed.”
“Very well. But the Banshee is clever. Dividing our forces might play right into her hands.”
Varok has defended Orgrimmar's gates for many years and knows that the city's weakest point is its many entrance ways so we need to divide our forces and deploy them strategically. And let's not forget that Baine put a big target on Thunder Bluff, so we’ll need to spare some of our troops to the defense of the Tauren.
Jaina and Thalyssra:
I have deployment orders from Saurfang and King Wrynn.
“First Arcanist. We are to shield our forces from magical assaults as they lay siege to the city.” “A wise decision. We can do so more effectively from higher ground. Lord Admiral, might I ask about the spellcraft you emplyed at Lordaeron? The levitating warship?”
“Would you believe me if I told you it was a Kul Tiran trade secret?”
“Summoning the ship, perhaps...but as for the enchanted cannons...”
Shandris and Lor'themar:
“So we are to strike from the north. A sound plan...but there is no telling what treachery Sylvanas has in store for us.”
“She fought beside you for many years, both in life and in undeath. You must know her well.”
“Perhaps I did, logn ago. But now... Hmmm...our forces are few in number. We must make use of the surrounding terrain when we assault the gate.”
“The sentinels have made use of that terrain for millennia. Our knowledge of the land was old when the Farstriders were young.”
“Yes, of course.”
High Chieftain, you have been tasked with defending the skies above Thunder Bluff.
“There is little my eagle riders can do while Sylvanas controls the skies. But we can still defend Thunderbluff. Ji is already there, tending to Baine’s wounds. He said he has seen Orgrimmar under siege once before, and does not wish to relive it. We will stand beside our tauren kin and await further orders from Saurfang. Earth Mother watch over us all.”
That bit about Ji Firepaw refers to the time of Warchief Garrosh and the Siege of Orgrimmar. Back then they kicked the crap out of him, nearly took his life to get information about Pandaren artifacts. Luckily for him we showed up in time to save his life and it seems like he remembers those days vividly. Most of us do ats this moment and most of the story, to be honest, makes it looks like history is doomed to repeat itself. All of our preperations are complete. Pray that we all survive the second Siege of Orgrimmar...
Reckoning - Mak'gora Outside Orgrimmar
Both sides were ready for a siege until Varok, knowing full well that he could not win the fight, steps up for a Mak’gora. I love how he carries Shalamayne, representing both the Alliance and the Horde in one single fighter. Some wondered if being able to split up the blade only happens moments before your death or can only be done by a super-duper special kind of being, but nothing that I know off suggests those rules to be in place. It just seems to be an ability the blade holds, but who knows what they might do with that idea in the future.
While he lacks the advantage in combat, his words and actions cause the Banshee Queen to have her emotions get the better of her in an outburst; and what we suspected for quite some time is now apparent to both the Alliance and Horde. Sylvanas does not care about the Horde as a whole, she cares about her own plans and used them to get what she wanted. Even her Forsaken were once described from arrows in a quiver to her bulwark against the infinite.
“Regent Lord, what manner of magic did Sylvanas use against Saurfang?”
“I had hoped either you or Thalyssra would have the answer to that question. I have never seen her wield such power.”
“It was unlike any magic I have ever encountered. I could sense none of it, even in her presence.”
“Then she must have only recently acquired it...or simply waited until now to reveal it.”
“Either way, it does not bode well for us. Whatever she is planning, she no longer needs the Horde to achieve it.”
Power levels in the story have always been a bit fluid and more so depends on what the story requires. Having Sylvanas be able to hold off a massive blow from Saurfang while in past events such as
she remembered how someone like Baine could snap her arm like a brittle twig...the rule of cool often surpasses what would make sense. That said, Sylvanas has been doing a lot of things that we’re not aware of. Who knows what kind of power she gained over the years, what kind of deals she has made to further her goals. She apparently feels like the Horde is no longer necessary for her ultimate plans while not even these experienced spellcasters can tell us what power she actually used in the battle against Saurfang.

, w break down his risky, courageous gambit, look at his understanding of honor, and speculate on where the role of Warchief could go next.
Aftermath of the Fourth War
We’ll talk about a bit more about the possibilities for Sylvanas in just a moment, but let's first recall our troops as Genn and the Worgen are still waiting, unaware of what has happened...
“Saurfang is dead and Sylvanas has escaped? This is no victory. I care not who leads the Horde or if they tear each other apart. All that maters is slaying the Banshee. And we have missed our chance.”
The King of Gilneas lost everything to Sylvanas and now his vengeance has been taken away from him. You might have also noticed how Tyrande Whisperwind and Malfurion Stormrage are not present on the battlefield. Anduin tells us that she hasn’t been answering his messages ever since leaving for darkshore. Tyrande has lost everything as well and he fears that she has lost herself to vengeance. Hopefully this will finally lead to a bit more in-fighting amongst the Alliance since they’re in desperate need of a bit more bite. On the Horde side you of course don’t talk to Greymane, instead you let the recovering Baine in Thunder Bluff know what happened to Saurfang...
“It pains me to remain here while others fight on the frontline.”
“You have done more than your part, Baine. Focus on your recovery.” “
Champion! Has the battle been won?”
“By the Earth Mother...”
“Saurfang...He risked his life to save mine...and gave his life to save the Horde. Go, champion. We will meet you in Orgrimmar to honor the memory of Varok Saurfang.”
Thrall: Varok Saurfang
Thrall: Son of Koruk
Thrall: Supreme Commander of the Might of Kalimdor
Thrall: High Overload of the Horde.
Thrall: He led the charge against the Lich King. He defended our world from the Legion.
Thrall: He defended our world from the Legion.
Thrall: Saurfang inspired all of us to strive for true honor. And his legacy will live on in our deeds.
Anduin: When the Alliance and Horde marched on Ahn'Qiraj, it was Saurfang who valiantly commanded our combined forces.
Anduin: today, his courage saved thousands of lives... on both sides of the battle.
Anduin: His sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Thrall: You have earned your warrior's death, old friend.
Thrall: Now, greet your son... with honor and glory.
And so ends the war campaign leaving the Horde without a Warchief, the Forsaken without a leader and the world without one of its greatest heroes. It’s very nice to see that the aftermath of all of this is represented within the city. Many different dialogues are popping up amongst the population on what happened. Tryign to mend the rift between those that remained loyal with their warchief and those that sides with saurfang. Forsaken that now feel completely abandoned while others hold out hope that this is all part of a major plan...
Players that decided to stick with Sylvanas can actually talk to Eitrigg the orc that you just beat up and put in chains. He doesn’t hold our choices against us. We each did what we thought was right. Leave it in the past. What matters now is how we reunite the Horde. This is how we start. Break the cycle, which is all fine and dandy for those that want to side with the rest of the Horde.

In the article
Where is Tyrande in the War Campaign?
we analyze what her absence could mean going forward. we may still get that opportunity in the future for Tyrande to thwart Azshara's ultimate plan. Currently Sylvanas is on the run, Tyrande is missing, and Greymane still wants to defeat Sylvanas--so perhaps the two Alliance leaders will splinter off and personally try to track Sylvanas down in 8.3. This could also be an opportunity to create division in the Alliance
Sylvanas Loyalist Ending
Some amongst us will remain ever loyal to the Banshee Queen. Dark Ranger Lenara was given instruction in case things played out this way. A cracked hearthstone takes us all the way to the Ghostlands, to the Windrunner Spire, former home of the Windrunner family...
Sylvanas: Ah champion, I wasn't certain you made it out of Orgrimmar. If the traitors know of your service to me, they'd have put you in irons...or worse. Saurfang's ill-considered challenge may have ended the war prematurely, but it doesn't matter now. Countless souls h ave been fed to the hungering darkness. Though I cared nothing for the living, I did pity the Forsaken. For the great injustice that made them what they are. I understand the cruelty of fate better than anyone.
But despite all I taught them, they stubbornly clung to hope. To life. They will learn the truth, along with all the rest.
My bargain with Azshara will yet bear fruit. The armies of Azeroth will fight her master, and he will line their streets with corpses. In the end, he too will serve Death.
Enough reflection. There are preparations to be made. Nothing lasts. When next you see me, you will understand.
I love the choice system they added. That choosing a specific path can lead to such a massive lore bomb and insider information you otherwise wouldn’t obtain. The reponse I saw to Nathanos declaring his love to Sylvanas was amazing and honestly, it’s really cool to see that these Undead characters still hold on to the feelings they had in life. If you’ve read his short story then you know that Nathanos wouldn’t mind spending the afterlife in eternal damnation if it meant spending that time with his beloved Windrunner. In turn it does seem like Sylvanas also has those feelings, more so then she wants the world to know.
The bit about the Forsaken clinging on to hope and life calls back to the events of the novel
Before the Storm
. In it we see an attempt at reuniting the undead with the living ending in failure. Some of the Forsaken did not want this day to end so they asked Calia Menethil, sister to Arthas Menethil to stand with them, lead them to the Alliance and abandon the Banshee Queen. This did not sit well with Sylvanas of course. All of the Forsaken, those that tried to run as well as those that tried to come back to her were shot down. Calia was killed, but her body was brought back to the Netherlight Temple where Anduin together with Alonsus and the naaru Saa’ra brought her back. Not to life, not as a forsaken, but as something else, an undead being of the Light.
We now also have confirmation that the events in Nazjatar were part of a bargain between Azshara and Sylvanas. This connection most likely came to be when heroes of the Horde brought the empty blade Xal'atath back to their Warchief. Her eyes darkened, plans were put in motion. Where first Azerite would change everything, obtaining the Blade of the Black Empire once again shifted her ideas. This also explains how Ashvane showed up for team Azshara. Last we saw of her was entering a secret meeting with the Warchief. Time passed without any information and then all of a sudden she showed up in Nazjatar, working with the naga. It does of course lead to the question as to what comes next for us and Sylvanas. All things seem to be pointing towards fighting N’zoth in the next patch and then the sky is the limit. At this point in time the motivation we have for Sylvanas is staying alive. Seeing hell and eternal damnation waiting for her has pushed her over the years. Pushed her to become more and more like Arthas the Lich King, like the thing she hated so very much.
Time breaks all bonds, but what if you could shackle their mind to your will like Sylvanas once experienced? That’s one path they could take, a journey to become the Lich Queen, but as always the possibilities are limitless. I can’t wait to see what Blizzcon is going to reveal. My personal hope is fighting N’zoth and losing to the Old Gods. Having the Black Empire rise up and maybe even a bit of a timeskip so that the entirety of Azeroth is just transformed. This way we’d no longer be the heroes of legend. Trying to crawl our way back to some sort of victory, pieces of land to call our own. But that’s just a hope, we’ll see what comes next soon enough!

Calia, Derek, and The Future
There's one more bit of dialogue among Alliance characters; Derek and Calia have been hanging out together. He has lived in torment since his awakeneing while Calia has guided him, helped him back from the brink of despair. The Forsaken have been abandoned by their Banshee Queen; perhaps that gap will be filled by Calia Menethil instead.
Calia: Ah, Jaina. What a relief to see you safe.
Jaina: Hello, Calia. Big Brother.
Derek: Word has spread of what happened at Orgrimmar. Is the war finally over?
Jaina: It will take time for all the pockets of fighting to be quelled but... yes, I believe so.
Calia: Azeroth has seen so many wars, so much strife. I pray we have earned a respite.
Jaina: As do I. Have you been able to find peace in your own heart, Derek?
Derek: I still have some rough seas to sail, but I'm much better now, thanks to Calia. Without her guidance, I would have been truly lost.
Calia: I'm so grateful you brought us together, Jaina. This time with Derek has helped me as much as it's helped him.
Jaina: In this wake of this war, others will need to find their footing. Their future. Perhaps you could guide them, too.
Derek: Maybe they don't need answers. Maybe they just need hope. Like I did.
Jaina: Well said, big brother. Come, let's take a walk. I am so grateful to have you both back in my life.
Another problem with Sylvanas abandoning ship would be the way that Forsaken are created. In the past it was those that had fallen to the plague and regained their will, but after the Cataclysm and her bargain with the Val'kyr, Sylvanas started to resurrect herself. Now she’s gone so if they need to find a way to keep the Forsaken going, perhaps the path of Calia will be the way to go. I do say perhaps of course, again the sky is the limit, who knows what they have in mind.
That is however where the War Campaign leaves us. If we follow what all the NPCs tell us, then something with N’zoth comes next in a future patch. We also have the storyline in which we need to figure out who told Vol’jin to make Sylvanas the Warchief and what their reason was. A boss behind Bwonsamdi. Someone has been messing with Vol’jin’s spirit. Powerful forces working behind the scenes, can’t wait to see it all play out. By all means let me know what you would like the future to bring cause that’s one of the things that excites me the most--where is the story going to go next?
