Adventure Journal

From his titanforged prison deep beneath the waves, N'Zoth spent eons subtly spreading his influence across Azeroth. Now free from captivity, the Corruptor reveals his true form as he enacts his ultimate plan to make his vision of the Black Empire our new reality. If he is not stopped, all we have ever known will be remade in the image of his eternal madness.

Queen Azshara yells: You wound me, Warchief. After all, I am as dedicated to my master as you are to your subjects.
Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Indeed. Just be certain that once you have what you need, you dispose of your guests. Let none of the "heroes" escape.
Queen Azshara yells: I admire your ruthlessness, Windrunner. It seems our interests are aligned... at present.

  • Some of the quotes bear similarity to other quotes.
    • "The way opens. Come, walk the path to power." bears similarity to Il'gynoth's "Five keys to open our way. Five torches to light our path.", Uu'nat's "We will find others to open the way!", Xal'atath's "Xal'atath says: Hear me, God of the Deep! I have brought you the Opener... the Bringer of Truths... the Torch That Lights the Way!" and the Unseen Presence in Nazjatar's "All paths open. All truths, revealed.".
    • "Only I can save this world. Yield... and serve!" bears similarity to the Void whispers Alleria Windrunner receives in the Windrunner: Three Sisters comic "Save the world and murder her." regarding Sylvanas.
