Lord Maxwell Tyrosus: With the Order of the Silver Hand reformed under your leadership, we have new direction and guidance. We have much work ahead of us.

Lord Maxwell Tyrosus: Greetings, Highlord. I have important news to share with you. During my expedition to the Broken Shore, I saw with my own eyes an extraordinarily luminescent object emerge from the Felstorm. It fell down towards the coast of Suramar, cutting a swath through the tempest itself! From it I felt an incredible surge of power, before it vanished beyond the horizon. We need to bring news of this immediately to Archmage Khadgar.

The story written by Robert Brooks serves as a prequel to World of Warcraft: Legion. The story picks up shortly after Archimonde slammed Gul’dan through a fel portal toward Azeroth, and ends with the opening of the gateway in the Tomb of Sargeras.

This audio drama is a very powerful medium for Blizzard to captivate the mind and heart of fans. In combination with Steven Pacey’s narration techniques, the sound effects, and the mood-setting music scores, Tomb of Sargeras is a masterpiece. You will certainly want more and more. Big kudos and a thank you to Robert Brooks for writing: Tomb of Sargeras.

In this new story, a disciple of Illidan confronts him with a question: Demonic energies run through our veins and gnaw at our every thought. What makes us any different than the Burning Legion?.

Legion Audio Drama: The Tomb of Sargeras: The Tomb’s Fury

Blizzard Entertainment released the third part of the Legion Audio Drama: The Tomb of Sargeras. In “Tomb’s Fury,” – read the transcript while you listen to the audio drama. Available in iTunes, and Google Play (Source).

In Part 3, there is a cliffhanger that makes you wonder how the portal for the Burning Legion was opened within the Tomb of Sargeras. Makes me think Part 4 comes with a twist. This is a MUST-HAVE story. The Tomb of Sargeras audio drama makes you want MORE from Robert Brooks, and from narrator Steven Pacey.

 

SPOILER: HIGHLIGHTS

1. Kil’jaeden commands Gul’dan: “END THIS! NEITHER OF YOU CAN DIE THIS DAY.” That is intriguing for the future of Khadgar. We already saw in the Short Animated (Harbingers: The Story of Khadgar) that the Burning Legion leaders have marked Khadgar as their potential servant in Azeroth — the same way Queen Azshara, Ner’zhul, and Gul’dan were. Harbingers happened before the audio drama. That means Khadgar continues to be part of the Burning Legion’s plan.

Ancient Mana | Suramar

First Arcanist Thalyssra: Without the Nightwell to feed upon, my comrades and I will have to live off the land itself. Ancient mana from the underground leylones can reach the surface in many forms, most commonly as crystals of gems.

(Thalyssra picks up a small stone and whispering words of power, traces a rune upon it with her fingertip.)

This stone will glow when ancient mana is nearby. Please gather as much as possible! It will be a precious resource in the weeks to come.

Legion Audio Drama: The Tomb of Sargeras

Blizzard Entertainment published the first World of Warcraft: Legion Audio Drama titled The Tomb of Sargeras — Part One: The Fate of Another, by Robert Brooks, and narrated by Steven Pacey.

You can read the transcript while listening to the Audio Drama. Available also in iTunes and soon on Spotify (Google Play)

Legion Audio Drama

The story takes us to the shores of the Broken Isles, likely Azsuna, where Gul’dan arrives after stealing a boat in the Eastern Kingdoms. Khadgar is hot on his heels, trying to find him. Khadgar meets with Maiev Shadowsong briefly. In-game you find her brother Jarod in Azsuna, who has come to rescue her from Black Rook Hold.

If Maiev is in this audio drama, then we might have some background on what happened before she was captured. This is only Part One.

Legion Animated Shorts – Harbingers: The Story of Khadgar

Blizzard Entertainment released another amazing World of Warcraft: Legion animated short. The second of the Harbingers series trio focuses on Khadgar.

Khadgar arrives to Karazhan seeking knowledge on how to defeat the Burning Legion. Something odd I found in this animated short is that Khadgar is surprised to see Medivh. It seems Medivh died a second time before Warlords of Draenor. Odd in that nowhere in-game, in novels, comics, or in the web short stories have we heard of Medivh’s demise.
