I’m kind of surprised to see no topic about the new Wrathion questline in 8.2.5. Did I miss something?
In these quests we learn that Wrathion has actively been working towards finding means of fighting the Void, and possibly fighting Void with Void. He went to Pandaria, Eldre’thalas, Titan facilities and Karazhan in his search, and came out with some ideas how to resist and oppose the Void, a potion that can clean old god corruption and silence Void whispers (I’ll be happy to force-feed it to Void Elves!), and the idea that the Forge of Reorigination (the Titans’ doomsday device in Uldum) was somehow the key to defeat the Old Gods finally.
First I have to say… couldn’t I have had this research questline instead of Wrathion doing it offscreen? I’ll happily give up the War Campaign for it, really…
Secondly… if this means anything for 8.3, it sounds as if the final raid is taking shape. The Forge of Reorigination is kind of close to the Chamber of the Heart, the Old Gods are identified as the true enemy, and Wrathion even namedrops the true Battle for Azeroth (roll credits). Fighting N’zoth near the Heart of Azeroth and using the Forge of Origination to defeat him sounds like a relatively safe bet now.
Of course none of this is earth-shatteringly new, but I am kind of surprised by the lack of talk about it I see here. Might just be me overlooking it, though.
