Early Look at Battle for Lordaeron Cutscenes
20/04/2018 à 16:43
Most cutscenes for the Battle for Lordaeron scenario are now added to the Battle for Azeroth alpha, featuring Anduin, Sylvanas, and Saurfang. While these cutscenes are missing voiceover audio, they still do a good job at filling in some of the plot blanks!
To recap, the Alliance retaliates the Horde
by attacking Lordaeron. This will play out in a special
leading up to the expansion. Check out our full playthrough of the scenarios last week
Anduin: It's over, Sylvanas! The walls of Lordaeron will soon come crashing down around you.
Sylvanas: You have no idea what you're up against, boy king. We've only just begun!
<A large war machine barrels through, shooting down Alliance structures.>
Genn: I've never seen anything like it...
Anduin: Anything made can be broken! Genn, follow me.
<Anduin smites the War Machine, finally destroying it.>
Sylvanas: Prepare the blight! Let it rain down upon their armies!
Saurfang: There must be another way, Warchief!
Sylvanas: This is no time for sentiment, High Overlord.
Sylvanas: War demands that we take a more direct approach.
<Blight is thrown from catapults and sprayed by plague doctors.>
Anduin: It's killing her own troops...
<Sylvanas casts a spell, raising all the fallen Alliance and Horde soldiers as skeletons, ready to serve her.>
Sylvanas: Destroy them!
These initial cutscenes appear to take place at:
Stage 3 – Clearing the Way
Defeat the Azerite War Machine
Stage 4 – Breach the Wall
Keep Undercity's forces at bay with King Anduin until the trebuchets breach the wall.
Stage 5 – Blighted Grounds
Evacuate wounded soldiers before they are infected by blight gas.
Stage 6 – Push Them Back
Break their front line
Stage 7 – Defend the Azerite War Machine
Defend the Azerite War Machine
Stage 8 – Our Secret Weapon
Use blight on Alliance forces to drive them away.
The third cutscene has no audio or subtitles yet. It depicts Sylvanas casting more spells and creating more explosions of blight, as Anduin and Jaina shake their heads.
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!
It's interesting to note Saurfang's insistence on an honorable death. In
A Good War
, he had made peace with dying honorably to Malfurion:
When pieces of the inn started to fall around the orc’s head, he accepted his death. Against a creature like Stormrage, there was no dishonor in failure. Saurfang simply had to meet his end without surrender.
However, he was denied his honorable death by Sylvanas intervening and distracting Malfurion. One could speculate that even more dark magic took place after the excerpt from
A Good War
to heal Saurfang, as he appears alive and well in the Burning of Teldrassil artwork, but earlier was seriously wounded due to Malfurion's attacks and the collapsing Inn.
There are still several missing cutscenes:
- Jaina Arrives! Her forces successfully blast through the wall of Lordaeron Keep! And btw it was *totally* cool.
- Sylvanas is waiting in the throne room when Anduin arrives. Anduin offers her the chance to surrender. Instead, she blows up the entire city. I mean, what did you expect?
