I really like this new development.But regarding all the revelations, there are some new question.Like ... who infiltrated life? As stated it should be a female, as we haven´t seen any female Dreadlords (a Dreadlady?) till now, maybe it's something entirely different. There are the drust, but they don´t infiltrate. Maybe it has something to do with the seed of darkness in the rift of aln or Xalatath....how would it even be possible for the dreadlords to infiltrate Void, as the Void sees every path and the Void Lords are outside the planes of existance....who do they serve? Because it seems unlikely that the Jailor is the mightiest representative of Death (he is bound to the Maw). So maybe the ancient ones?...is there a representative for every plane as strong as the void lords and the titans? Are the missing ones the ancients for Death, Elune for Light, and who would it be for Nature and Disorder (Sargeras was originally a Titan of Arcane origin)?And if Sargeras is not of Disorder origin, maybe there are many more demons and other creatures who originate from Fel and Disorder. Maybe even another fully inhabitated plane like the Shadowlands or the Emerald Dream.

This speculation is quite exciting,also i love the article can't wait for more
Dreadlords be foolin ERRYBODY - even the Legion. Nice.
Before we get too excited about this... What's the in-game source for this? Is this book something that can actually be acquired?I still remember this article, back during the BfA beta:https://es.wowhead.com/news=282281/queen-azsharas-presence-in-battle-for-azeroth-story-spoilersWe all got excited about this too. A correspondence that hinted at Azshara being behind the events from several expansions. Yet the correspondence never made it to live, so we can assume it isn't canon.I would be very cautious about something that doesn't seem to even have a source. This might not make it to live.
Dreadlords are those cartoon henchmen every villain uses and claim they are only loyal to him. It is quite a cop-out for blizzard to have Dreadlords like this.Again though, for all their cunning, their 'guile'. They always ignore the mortals that become their downfall. They always focus on the 'cosmic' powers while forget that the COMBINATION of EVERY POWER that is the mortals have the potential to beat any of them.
This is so profoundly amazing that many will ignore it.
And the mystery around Dreadlords never fades away, since Warcraft III they seem to be behind something bigger. I wonder what's their true role in the Warcraft cosmology and if we will eventually go to their homeland.However, while I think Shadowlands looks cool and all, I don't really like this new plane/cosmos exploration approach as a theme for expansions going forward. I think would be better if we venture into other planets even knowing this looks more sci-fiction than fantasy-driven.
Are my eyes playing tricks or are nearly all of the comments here.. positive? Surely, this must be some sort of alternate universe or maybe a dream? xDAnyway, I like where this is going.. can't wait to discover more :D
It has a subtitle/it's just a preface, does that mean there are multiple sequential letters to a master that explain more about who they are/whom they serve?
Really interesting twist! I love it!Though I'm a tad confused as to why Varimatharas would betray Sylvanas? I suppose maybe he didn't - just didn't want Sargerus to suspect the Dreadlords if he sided with Sylvanas without good reason. So he sacrificed himself purposely.
I hope it isn't Lothraxion. He is one of the more cool additions to the game and would it would be interesting to see more "light converted" things. Though it could also be a hook for a next expansion where we fight off the Army of Light and have various beings turned into glowy things.I also want to know how long Blizzard had this idea. Was it something they have loosely been working towards for years or is it something they are creating just for Shadowlands and to carry the story forward. It is a perfect story to "retcon" things with out actually being a retcon. Since Blizzard can state the perspective we saw in Chronicles, and other places, were just manipulated.
All that spiel and not one mention of where it drops lol does anyone know ? I love collecting things like this in-game and storing them up as a "library" of sorts.Apologies if I missed it but I've read the article a few times now and can't see the source of the book itself.
The naaru aren't creatures of pure light as they can transform into beings of pure shadow/void energy, and can transform back at will. It stands for me to believe that Elune, and the naaru, aren't necessarily on the side of the light since they can switch sides seemingly. I thought at one time that perhaps Elune would be part of the Nature side of the chart but after seeing her manifest the shadow warrior powers, I don't think that's the case. I'm wondering who is the god/goddess of that side of the chart? There's a lot to learn from all this.
