BFA Finale Quests Return in Patch 9.0.2 - Hear Faction Leaders Discuss Aftermath of War
17.11.2020 в 17:57
The BFA finale quests were deprecated by accident in the Shadowlands pre-patch and have returned in 9.0.2. In addition, you don't need to kill N'Zoth (
Ни'алота, Пробуждающийся Город: гибель Заразителя
) to progress on the finale now.
This was brought to our attention by Lead Narrative Designer Steve Danuser on Twitter.
Below are all the dialogue options that unlocked upon completion of the original finale. The story has mostly progressed beyond the dialogues, but they are still interesting and provide more context on the pre-patch narrative. If you're curious what faction leaders think about the actual pre-patch, we have new posts on
Alliance BFA Finale Dialogue -
Anduin Wrynn says: The armistice is signed. At long last, the Fourth War is over.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: No. Not while the Black Moon still cries out for vengeance. Not until the Horde has answered for its treachery.
Anduin Wrynn says: Further bloodshed will not bring back the fallen. We must renew our hope and forge a future for those who survived.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: And when the next warchief musters an army, will hope save you if it is Stormwind that burns?
Anduin Wrynn says: I know it's difficult to trust, but there are signs of change within the Horde.
Anduin Wrynn says: In place of a warchief, there is now a council led by Baine, Thrall, and the others. I believe they can--
Tyrande Whisperwind says: Your faith is naive, lion son. I will sign no treaty unless it is written in the Banshee's blood!
Genn Greymane says: There is truth in her words, Anduin.
Genn Greymane says: Peace may be on the table today, but soon enough the Horde will sound their drums and march for war.
Genn Greymane says: When that day comes, no scrap of parchment will hold them back.
Anduin Wrynn says: The path to peace will not be easy, and not all will choose to walk it.
Anduin Wrynn says: But this is the only way to build a better future. I believe it will work, Genn.
Anduin Wrynn says: It has to.
Anduin doesn't seem that happy about the defeat of N'Zoth, and based on what happens to him in the pre-patch, he was right to worry about the threat of Sylvanas.
Jaina Proudmoore says: The Old God has been vanquished. The Alliance and Horde have ended hostilities.
Jaina Proudmoore says: This should be a day of celebration, Anduin. Yet you wear your troubles like a crown.
Anduin Wrynn says: I'm so glad that after all you endured, you have found peace within your heart, Jaina. I can't say the same about myself, though. Not yet.
Anduin Wrynn says: Sylvanas is out there somewhere. Until she's brought to justice, I don't think Tyrande or Genn will truly consider the war to be over.
Jaina Proudmoore says: The Kul Tiran fleet is scouring the seas, and Shaw has spies searching every dark corner of Azeroth. She can't hide for long.
Anduin Wrynn says: I don't believe she will. Which is exactly what concerns me.
Tyrande is also frustrated by the end of the Fourth War, seeking vengeance which continues to elude her in the pre-patch. Even the victory against Nathanos felt hollow as he simply travelled to the Shadowlands after death. Tyrande's powers of the Night Warrior continue to grow, which grants her combat prowess but an insatiable hunger for revenge, and her story of controlling that power will continue in Ardenweald in Shadowlands.
Shandris Feathermoon says: You spoke harshly to King Anduin, Tyrande. The Kaldorei can ill afford to shun the Alliance. They have provided aid and comfort to us in these dark times.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: The young king is foolish to trust our enemies. Harsh words should be the least of his fears.
Shandris Feathermoon says: The Banshee Queen no longer leads the Horde. Those who do seem more inclined toward peace than war.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: If the wolf is rabid, it matters not who rides it. Sooner or later, the beast will bare its fangs.
Shandris Feathermoon says: You are dearest to my heart, Tyrande. I beg you, let go of the Black Moon's rage and embrace the mother's light once again. I could not bear to lose you to darkness.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: Know this. My hunger for vengeance will not be sated so long as Sylvanas Windrunner remains free--and until I know why Elune abandoned her children.
Shandris Feathermoon says: Tyrande! Do not say such--
Tyrande Whisperwind says: I will tarry no longer in this city of men. Let us leave for the boughs of Nordrassil.
Tyrande Whisperwind says: From there we will dispatch the Sentinels to every corner of Azeroth. Let no one rest until the Banshee is found.
With Anduin captured by Sylvanas' forces, Turalyon now sits on the Stormwind throne in his absence. In the
novel leading up to the pre-patch, Turalyon and Alleria interrogate Horde civilians to learn more about Sylvanas' whereabouts, using methods Jaina finds questionable but Anduin does not. Now in the pre-patch, Shaw
appears to have some reservations
about Turalyon's position of power.
High Exarch Turalyon says: I thought I'd find you here. It's a place you often visit when something's on your mind.
Alleria Windrunner says: Perhaps these statues remind me of a... simpler time.
High Exarch Turalyon says: So much has happened since our return to Azeroth. The wounding of the world...the war against the Horde...
Alleria Windrunner says: War I understand. We both do. But I expected to be fighting with two sisters at my side. Instead, I faced one of them in battle--or at least, what remains of her.
High Exarch Turalyon says: Has the downfall of the Old God brought you at least a measure of peace?
Alleria Windrunner says: The whispers did not end with his defeat. In fact, it seems new voices have joined the chorus. When I think of the nightmares he forced into my mind...
High Exarch Turalyon says: I witnessed them, too. But they didn't shake my faith in you. Not for a moment.
Alleria Windrunner says: Nor mine for you, my love. Enough reflection. We have a job to do--hunt down Sylvanas...and make her pay.
Shaw discusses his personal life with Valeera, hinting at a future relationship with a mysterious person. This is further explored in
, where he embarks on a relationship with Flynn Fairwind at the end of the novel, which is continued in
World of Warcraft: Exploring Eastern Kingdoms
. In the Shadowlands pre-patch, we see
Valeera in Orgrimmar
but she assures us she has friends on both sides--and the following conversation makes it clear that she does have friends in the Alliance.
Valeera Sanguinar says: The bitter war is over, yet it seems few among us are in the mood for celebration. Our young king least of all.
Master Mathias Shaw says: A great weight rests upon King Anduin's shoulders. I fear his burden won't get lighter anytime soon.
Valeera Sanguinar says: And what of you, Shaw? What is there for Stormwind's spymaster to do in a time of peace?
Master Mathias Shaw says: You know as well as I that a true spy never rests. There is always a new conspiracy to uncover. That said, I may find a bit of time for myself.
Valeera Sanguinar says: Just yourself?
Master Mathias Shaw says: There is someone I would like to... get to know better. But such things are best taken slowly. Carefully.
Valeera Sanguinar says: Spoken like a true spy. Just remember, happiness is a fleeting thing. Find it while you can, Shaw.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Perhaps I will, Valeera. Perhaps I will.
Taelia Fordragon wants to learn the fate of her father from Anduin now that the war is over, but he keeps avoiding her. This later blows up spectacularly in the Shadowlands pre-patch as Taelia learns the fate of her father by accidentally overhearing a conversation between Shaw and Greymane.
Anduin Wrynn says: I saw you speaking with a messenger from Kul Tiras, Jaina. Is everything alright?
Jaina Proudmoore says: Nothing to worry about. It was a letter from a certain eager cadet asking to see Stormwind...and to learn more about her father.
Anduin Wrynn says: Taelia. Please tell her that this isn't a good time for visitors.
Jaina Proudmoore says: She deserves to hear the truth, Anduin. From you.
Anduin Wrynn says: Tirion Fordring himself made us swear that we would keep the secret of Bolvar's fate. You made that vow just as I did.
Jaina Proudmoore says: I remember your father once telling me that the hardest thing about a promise isn't keeping it, but knowing when it's right to break it.
Anduin Wrynn says: Bolvar was a noble man. To know that he sits frozen upon that accursed throne, devoting his very life to keeping the monsters at bay...
Anduin Wrynn says: It breaks my heart. I can't bear to see it break Taelia's, too.
Jaina Proudmoore says: The decision is yours, Anduin. But if she learns that the truth was kept from her, it will hurt her all the more.
Horde BFA Finale Dialogue -
Lor'themar Theron says: The Alliance has sent word. They have agreed to the armistice. This bitter war is finally over.
Baine Bloodhoof says: At last we can begin to heal our wounded Earth Mother... and the wounded Horde as well.
Lor'themar Theron says: One question remains. Who will serve as warchief? Perhaps, you, Thrall, would--
Thrall says: No. I told Saurfang I would not lead the Horde again.
Thrall says: But perhaps the question is not who should become warchief... but whether there should be one at all.
Lor'themar Theron says: Though the Horde has changed through the years--for good or ill--we have always looked to a warchief to guide us forward.
Baine Bloodhoof says: That legacy must end. The war nearly cost us everything. There is no place for a warchief in a time of peace.
Thrall says: It is true--the Horde has changed. Our ranks have grown, and new voices have stepped forth to lead.
Thrall says: This is what makes us strong. All of us, building a new future--together.
Baine convinces Rokhan to step up to the Horde Council as a representative of the Darkspear; in the pre-patch we find Baine captured by Sylvanas' forces.
Rokhan says: Since da death of Vol'jin, da Darkspear been lookin' ta me ta guide dem.
Rokhan says: I been fightin' for dem a long, long time... but dat don't mean I deserve ta be deir chieftain.
Baine Bloodhoof says: I felt much the same when my father died. It happened suddenly, and I feared that I was unprepared to take his place.
Baine Bloodhoof says: But I was ready, just as you are. You proved that in Zuldazar and at Stromgarde. The Darkspear have faith in you, and so do I.
Rokhan says: Heh. Ya best be stoppin' da flattery, Baine, before it be goin' ta me head.
Rokhan says: But... da Darkspear do be needin' a leader. A voice on da council. And if it gotta be me... den it be me.
Baine Bloodhoof says: Trust your judgment, Rokhan. It has led you this far.
Rokhan says: It be havin' a lotta help. From da Darkspear, from da loa... and from da Horde.
Lor'themar and Thalyssra end up later pursuing a romantic relationship in the short story
"A Moment in Verse"
Lor'themar Theron says: Thank you again for leading our forces in Nazjatar alongside me, Thalyssra. Your insight and courage were key to our victory.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: It was an honor, Lor'themar. I am relieved the war is finally over. Now you have no excuse to refuse my invitation to visit Suramar.
Lor'themar Theron says: Well, uh... I have been away from Silvermoon for some time. No doubt my people require--
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Halduron has assured me that Quel'Thalas is quite secure. And Rommath said that if you put up a fuss, he will teleport you to the Nighthold himself.
Lor'themar Theron says: It seems my closest allies are conspiring against me!
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Would it really take a conspiracy for you to spend time alone with me?
Lor'themar Theron says: No, my lady. It would be my pleasure.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: A suitably chivalrous answer, Regent Lord. There may be hope for you yet! Perhaps I can even teach you to relish the... simpler joys of life.
Lor'themar Theron says: Perhaps you can, First Arcanist. Perhaps you can.
With Gallywix missing in action since the end of the Fourth War, Thrall convinces Gazlowe to serve as the goblin representative. Gallywix's whereabouts are still unknown in the pre-patch.
Thrall says: Gallywix has fled the city along with the rest of Sylvanas' inner circle. That leaves the Bilgewater Cartel without its trade prince.
Thrall says: Gazlowe, it was your cleverness and ingenuity that built the walls of Orgrimmar. I cannot think of anyone I would trust more to take over as leader.
Gazlowe says: A cartel ain't a clan or a tribe, Thrall. Steamwheedle, Bilgewater... it don't matter who supplies the cash--so long as the pay's good.
Gazlowe says: "Under new management" is just another way of sayin' "opportunity's knockin'". So, sure... you got yourself a deal!
Thrall says: Can you be sure that none of the goblins here are still being funded by Gallywix?
Gazlowe says: Oh, I guarantee they are. That's why I'm gonna pay 'em more than that cheapskate.
Geya'rah, once one of the leaders most sympathetic to Sylvanas, discusses loyalty with Lilian Voss. The fate of Forsaken leadership has been up in the air since Sylvanas' disappearance, and in the later
, we learn that Lilian has decided to serve on the Horde Council for a time.
Overlord Geya'rah says: The Mag'har have never known life without a warchief. It will be hard for them--and for me. But it seems your people have lost a queen as well.
Lilian Voss says: The Forsaken are torn by turmoil and doubt. Many still love Sylvanas, even after all she has done. Others believe their home remains in the Horde.
Overlord Geya'rah says: And you? Where do your loyalties lie?
Lilian Voss says: Where they always have--with the Forsaken. To be raised into undeath is to be forever haunted by the ghosts of your past. A caring hand can offer comfort through the pain.
Overlord Geya'rah says: I see no crown upon your head. Are you the new queen they seek?
Lilian Voss says: No. I'll speak on my people's behalf, but I won't rule them. There is another I believe will prove better suited to that task... when the time is right.
Overlord Geya'rah says: The love you hold for your people burns as bright as my own for the Mag'har. I wish you good fortune, Lilian Voss.
Lilian Voss says: To us all, Overlord.
Velonara, one of Sylvanas' dark rangers, discusses her shifting allegiances and why she has chosen to no longer support the Dark Lady. While we see that Sylvanas still has loyalists in the
novel, Velonara is not among them.
These are interesting times.
I see you remained in Orgrimmar.
We dark rangers were fiercely loyal to Sylvanas. We trusted her... followed her commands.
It is clear that our loyalty was never truly reciprocated.
Some of my sisters and brothers have chosen to remain at the Dark Lady's side. I, and many others, have not.
<Velonara's expression becomes steely. Determined.>
I refuse to be a slave to this torment.
Both the sin'dorei and Forsaken are my kin. I stand with them, and with the Horde.
