Side Quest in Thaldraszus Hints at Nozdormu's Dark Future
14/08/2022 à 05:00
Nozdormu, the Bronze Dragon Aspect, is destined to one day transform into Murozond, leader of the Infinite Dragonflight - betraying his flight's sacred duties along with everything he believes in. We have often wondered if we might finally witness this transformation in Dragonflight, especially since a short side questline in Thaldraszus seems to once again hint at this fate.
WARNING: DRAGONFLIGHT STORY SPOILERS AHEAD!
Echo of Duty
In a side questline in Dragonflight, a member of the Bronze Dragonflight asks us to investigate an anomalous shrine. Writing outside the shrine makes reference to Aman'thul, leader of the Titan Pantheon, a portion of whose power was granted to Nozdormu when he became the Bronze Aspect.
Inside the shrine, you discover an Echo of Duty, with flavor text that reads,
"Hushed whispers reverberate in your mind as you hold this swirling sphere. You can make out one word: 'Nozdormu'."
Bringing the item to Nozdormu causes him to become extremely thoughtful. He references the fact that, when he was made into the Aspect of Time, he gained the knowledge of all things that have and will happen in time, including his own death. This artifact is an echo of that knowledge, which he has tucked away in every timeline as a reminder to himself.
Though he breaks off before saying it out loud, Nozdormu also references his own fate of transforming into Murozond: convinced by the Old Gods to try prevent his own demise, he will break his oath and instead create the Infinite Dragonflight, a flight determined to shatter the timelines.
Nozdormu may have created this artifact to remind himself of his duty, but he seems clearly upset when he engages with it. Perhaps he is just haunted by the knowledge that he could become someone like Murozond. Or, perhaps, as he once again faces the knowledge of his own death, he is beginning to question that duty...
Nozdormu says: When I was granted a portion of Aman'Thul's power, many great secrets were revealed to me.
Nozdormu says: I captured that knowledge within this relic. An echo of what is, what has been, and what must always be.
Nozdormu says: I hid it away in a corner of every timeline. So that I would always remember those words. Even after I...
Nozdormu falls silent. After another moment, he clasps the sphere more tightly and turns away from you.
