The Battle for Lordaeron scenarios, content coming in the 8.0 pre-patch, are now available to preview on the Battle for Azeroth alpha. While some key cinematics were withheld from players, we could play through most of the scenario and witness the plot first-hand.rrStory spoilers.rrWhile the exact details and character motivations of the story are unknown, we know the Horde launches an attack on Teldrassil, successfully burning the world tree. The Alliance then retaliates on Lordaeron. We have datamined lots of tantalizing snippets of broadcast text related to Lordaeron:rFirst in 25976 we got lots of dialogue related to Lordaeron.rNext in 26032 we got more dialogue related to the battle including some tense dialogue with Saurfang.rBuild 26231 then adds Saurfang dialogue showing his distrust for the Warchief.rrrHorde ScenariorrrIn this scenario, the Horde fight back against the Alliance, evacuating the Undercity and then turning to more controversial measures like using Blight to kill Alliance soldiers and raise them as ghouls. The Blight also kills wounded Horde soldiers in the way.
Saurfang is opposed to the idea, stating:rrSoldiers of the Horde! Your brothers and sisters lie wounded on the battlefield! There is no honor in this victory if we abandon our own!rrrHowever, Sylvanas urges the soldiers on:rSlay them all, champions! Mar my words, King Anduin and his army did not come here for their amusement.
They mean to destroy us! Show them no mercy, for they would show you none in return!rrA placeholder cinematic occurs, which is likely Jaina breaching the walls of Lordaeron:r- Jaina Arrives! Her forces successfully blast through the wall of Lordaeron Keep! And btw it was.totally. cool.rrAs Sylvanas regroups, all the faction leaders follow her.except Saurfang is missing.
The Horde and Alliance leaders then face off directly, including the Void Elves fighting their former ruler Lor'themar and the sisters Alleria and Sylvanas on opposite sides.rrThe Horde are not successful and fall back to the keep. Here we find Saurfang waiting:rSaurfang: I had to see it for myself. Was this your plan all along? Is this how you meant to achieve victory? This.honorless travesty?rSylvanas: 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.rrrrSylvanas walks into the keep and here another cutscene takes place. Datamined info is always subject to change, but we've found:r- Sylvanas is waiting in the throne room when Anduin arrives. Anduin offers her the chance to surrender.
Instead, she blows up the entire city. Comment by TrickyZerg2on 2018-04-14T10:54:17-05:00It seems more like Rommath wanted the Void elves gone and Lor'themar fell in line, maybe he felt threatened by Umbric? I feel like you can make the claim the Void Elves are following in Darkhan's footsteps, though we'd just be splitting hairs.
They won't be crafting any scourge but certainly they've dug deeper than Darkhan.rrThe Ren'dorei will always feel a little confusing because they haven't really been fleshed out and they really could have just gone next door to Undercity and have been totally fine and accepted to pursue their research. Lor'themar has a lot of respect for Sylvanas, this is clear in Siege of Orgrimmar.rrThe dichotomy of Light and Dark is falling away especially after Argus. Some could make the case that Velen is a traitor to the Light because of how he decided to forge his own path due to Illidan. The traitor remark for Lor'themar then seems a little hollow.rrEvil is subjective. Both factions encompass a large diversity of different groups with different mores, codes, and creeds. As such, there will be a mix of seemingly abhorrent and altruistic behavior. The main point: war isn't pretty.Comment by honourswordon 2018-04-14T10:57:51-05:00The Alliance started the war back in Stormheim attacking the warchief unprovoked shortly after their forces fought together on the broken shore.
So Sylvanas responds in taking extreme measures to win the war the blue guys started. It is really simple.
3ds max 2012 full crack 64 bit. Win the war and the horde will be save alone on Kalimdor for centuries. I can get behind that idea.rrNot true as it looks like Stormheim didnt lead to war or if it did it was over once the Legion was defeatedComment by Grazrugon 2018-04-14T10:59:18-05:00The Alliance started the war back in Stormheim attacking the warchief unprovoked shortly after their forces fought together on the broken shore.

I can get behind that idea.rrI will literally never get tired of people insisting that Genn is the true bad guy in all of this, because god forbid Sylvanas get held accountable for anything, ever.rrSylvanas attacked his kingdom unprovoked, slaughtered and tortured his troops, rendered Gilneas nearly uninhabitable with blight, and killed his son in front of him. He has every reason to have a grudge against her.rrWhen he receives intel suggesting that she's up to something shady in Stormheim, of course he jumps at the chance to attack her en route. And he was right - she ends up taking the Soulcage from Helya and using it in an attempt to enslave Eyir, a servant of Odyn (you know, the guy who we really really needed to be on his good side because he had the shield we needed to stop the world from blowing up), to grant herself immortality and an endless undead army.rrIn other words, she made an attack on a mutual ally that, best case scenario, would make her and the Forsaken essentially invincible, and worst case scenario would've screwed the entire war against the Legion. And Genn stopped her. But this makes him the bad guy. Because reasons.rrSure.rrThis war started long before sylvanas makes her move on Teldrassil and Ashenvale. Because of Azerit the alliance just didn't want the horde to have without even knowing what it is.rrAlso it was bad ass luck that Sylvanas was actually up to something.
Without that Genn would be held accountable for attacking the other faction leader when she tried to get the aegis for the champions. RrOne order would be enough to get the rest of the horde for a counter attack. RrAnd last on.
Just because the holy light has burned your brain out it doesn't mean you can throw accusations around. The only one seeing it as a bad thing that the forsaken become invincible would be, surprise the alliance.Comment by nonamegivenon 2018-04-14T11:05:26-05:00This war started long before sylvanas makes her move on Teldrassil and Ashenvale.

That's why it makes sense for them to stop their enemies from becoming unstoppable.rrI noticed you missed the bit about pissing off the guy holding the MacGuffin we needed to stop the Legion from winning the war.rr(Horde main since TBC, by the way)Comment by baqqaon 2018-04-14T11:07:09-05:00I am really happy to be part of this. Be it fiction or something more. It is really cool how sparked a lot of ppl are about this.

Wish we had some way to explore the area a bit more before leaving thoComment by Lelielfraon 2018-08-07T10:43:59-05:00If we wait until 14th, will it give experience like in the BFA beta?Comment by Shakizon 2018-08-07T10:44:39-05:00I really hope EU servers can play it too in a few hours and don't have to wait till the next server resetComment by SiegaPlayson 2018-08-07T10:48:59-05:00Wish they had made last weeks quests on alts optional too. Feels wrong to not be able to skip this scenario until making last weeks quests:pComment by Pandaferaon 2018-08-07T10:54:18-05:00Let it Go Let it Goa song of fire and icelolXDPlayied both on alpha/beta, but live is much more epic with all the cutscenes.

The mounts from this event will be gone and unobtainable and you'll be getting your first azerite piece of gear. You would want to do this on all your alts so they can have the neckpiece right off at launch.Comment by Chaliceon 2018-08-07T11:02:25-05:00seems we need to complete burning teldrasil scenario first to make this scenario become available?Comment by Krynabison 2018-08-07T11:04:40-05:00Love how the new cinematics add to the scenario. It was already a good scenario (although I hate f@#$@ing sylvannas) but not it is much more complete:)rrThanks!Comment by SiegaPlayson 2018-08-07T11:29:26-05:00This is only a pre-patch event and goes away at launch.

Battle For Lordaeron Wow
You would want to do this on all your alts so they can have the neckpiece right off at launch.rrSo what you are saying is that I can skip the quests in Darkshore on alts, but then only skip this scenario next week after launch. RrIf I want to get past this scenario this week, I have to do last weeks quests on alts first to skip it this week on them.Comment by angeleyedon 2018-08-07T11:34:13-05:00Ok now I hate alleria more than Greymane. I will enjoy crushing them like worms.Comment by SiegaPlayson 2018-08-07T11:41:32-05:00So Sylvanas is like the abusive ex that either kills or grimly scars you because if he can't have you, no one should have you.And she favors dead people and happily destroy the living to create more death servants.Have a hard time finding something likable about her besides her dogged determination.1.
