The Horde got Wrathgate.

26 Dec

If you’re Horde, and you’ve made your way well into Dragonblight, you’ll know what I’m talking about.  And it doesn’t end with the big scene at the Wrathgate.  Oh, no.  The story that ends there at the gate is literally mind blowing.  You’ll be shocked and asking yourself “The WHO?  How is that possible?  We all kind of knew, but this changes everything!”


But you follow up on things, join in on the action, help recover the situation, and bring it to the true conclusion of the quest chain.

If you’re Alliance, you’ll get bupkis.  (Uh, my bad.  See the edit note below!)

Which has me wondering:  Will the Alliance get their Wrathgate later on in the WotLK?  Or the Expansion perhaps?  Something to do with the Emerald Dream?  Will they have a “Dream Portal” quest chain that Horde are denied?  Something centered on and/or revolving around Night Elves, Druids, and the Emerald Dream?  Will it involve Azshara and her Naga and the Maelstrom?  Will the greener side of the Stormrage family come back into play?

Time will tell.  (And our level 80 (level 80 by that time) Night Elf Druids will have something to look forward to.)

Edit: I might do need to take that back.  It would seem the Alliance have their share in this event as well.  That’s good to know.  So, maybe, maybe not, there’ll be an Alliance-centric version of something like this next Expansion, available, of course, to both side!  :)

    Alliance get the same exact Wrath Gate as the Horde. The quest leading up is just from the Alliance perspectives. Then we storm UNdercity just like the horde.

    I was wondering what you were going on about there for a minute. :)

    Yes, Alliance has a thing after WG as well. That “phasing” technology is pretty spiffy.

    Yeah, I blew that one. I really did think it might be Horde only given the Undercity angle. It’ll be interesting to see how our Alliance characters go through this as well.

    I was beaten on the response, but I wanted to say that’s a cool screenshot.
