Sylvanas Raid Encounter - Final Phase Story Hints (Speculation/Spoilers)
20.04.2021 um 02:14
While the highly-anticipated Sylvanas raid encounter is not available for testing yet, we have some datamining hints as to the location of the final phase!
Speculation and possible story spoilers in the post.
We start the Sylvanas encounter at the top of Torghast, and as the fight progresses, we chase her and the Jailer through the sky:
Stage One: A Cycle of Hatred: "We have forgotten what makes us strong." Players battle against Sylvanas
while the Jailer remains elusive.
Intermission: A Monument to our Suffering: "You are unfit to wear this crown." Upon reaching 80% health, Sylvanas chains all players with , then casts , destroying the tower itself.
Stage Two: The Banshee Queen: "What are we if not slaves to this torment?" Sylvanas enters , taking to the skies to waylay players' persuit of the Jailer as he ascends. Thrall and Jaina lend their aid by casting and , respectively, but must be kept free from interruptions while doing so.
Stage Three: The Freedom of Choice: "Nothing can stop what is to come." Sylvanas follows the players' traversal, greeting them for the
final showdown between Death and inevitability
in the Jailer's master plan.

There are a few bits of datamined information to suggest that the Sylvanas encounter will end with the Jailer confronting the Arbiter in Oribos!
First up, we have the description of the final phase, which states that there's a "final showdown between Death and inevitability." The Jailer is an opposing force to the Arbiter and everything she represents, and even their models are a positive/negative effect as the Arbiter holds a glowing orb in her chest cavity while the Jailer's is hollow. Conceptually, it makes sense that we'd see a face-off between both forces, seeing how the Jailer has been working to destabilize the cycle of Death and everything the Arbiter stands for.
Next up, in our
Sanctum of Domination Raid Environment Preview
, our final datamined models from the end of the raid depict the Arbiter's Chambers. The images immediately before the Chambers depict the top of Torghast, which corresponds to the start of the Sylvanas encounter.
We've then looked at skyboxes added in 9.1, and there's one called
Arbiter Sky Raid Fight
, which once again sounds like the latter phases of the Sylvanas encounter as she takes to the skies in Phase 2.
The evidence points to the Arbiter's Chamber as the final location for the Sanctum of Domination raid, but we don't know what will happen there or if a possible Mythic-only phase will add more narrative elements. We know the
skybox in Oribos is much darker
on the PTR, which implies something ominous happens in the raid, and BlizzConline teased
for the aftermath of the fight:
We will be taking the fight directly to Sylvanas Windrunner, the Banshee Queen herself. The finale of this fight is going to change the future of the Shadowlands.
We look forward to seeing how Sylvanas' encounter turns out and what lore mysteries are finally solved at the end of the raid!
