“I will NOT be held accountable for the sins of my father. My destiny will be my own.”

— Wrathion[3]

Wrathion, the Black Prince, is one of the few black dragons on Azeroth[4] known to be uncorrupted by the taint of the Old Gods and, following the death of Deathwing and the destruction of the corrupted black dragonflight, one of the last known black dragons alive on Azeroth. Claiming to have seen a future where Azeroth falls, Wrathion helped heroes of the Horde and Alliance gaining powers, usually in the form of magical legendary items. He is, however, ruthless in his goals and pursues what he perceives as the greater good for Azeroth with almost fanatical devotion. As the self-proclaimed last black dragon, Wrathion believes that the titans' mandate to protect Azeroth now falls to him, and he will do whatever it takes to fulfill this charge once entrusted to Deathwing,[5] that he personally identifies as his father. Most dragons do regard their Aspect as their progenitor since they were the genesis of their kind out of the proto-drake stage of evolution, albeit through the direct hand of the titan watchers, but with Deathwing's infamous history it carries a bit more significance.

After being purified and hatched during the war against Deathwing, Wrathion saw to the death of every other black dragon he knew of, including his father. He decided to take on the appearance of a dark-skinned human for his mortal disguise, and provided an adventurer rogue with the Fangs of the Father to hunt down the last dragons of the black dragonflight in Azeroth. After he nearly survived an assassination attempt by the red dragonflight, he claimed to take his destiny into his own hands and disappeared. He later would claim to be the self-proclaimed leader of his flight.[6]

As the Alliance-Horde war intensified on Pandaria, Wrathion traveled to the once hidden continent and created his own organization, he then sought to use an adventurer gifted with a powerful cloak of his own creation in a plot to have one side wipe out the other,[7] making the world more secure against greater threats.[8] While his plan ultimately failed when King Varian Wrynn decided to make peace with Warchief Vol'jin instead of dismantling the Horde, Wrathion's ambition to safeguard the world remained unchanged. After he helped Kairozdormu release Garrosh Hellscream during his trial, Wrathion stayed in the shadows, observing the conflict between the forces of Azeroth and the Iron Horde, and which side would win the war in Draenor.

For years he traveled across Azeroth, seeking a way to fight the madness that once corrupted his flight. Near the end of the Fourth War, as N'Zoth was the one primarily responsible for his father's corruption, Wrathion once again offered his assistance.[9] This time, he created Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve to help Azeroth's champions resist the Old God's corruptive influence. Following the end of the Old God, Wrathion vowed that the black dragonflight would forevermore stand in defense of Azeroth, alongside its champions.

With the Dragon Isles rediscovered, Wrathion now contended with Sabellian for the right to become the new Aspect of the black dragonflight. This competition ended when the two brothers delved into Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible. Realizing that he did not need to be Aspect to aid his flight, and that his reasons for pursuing the position were skewed, Wrathion withdrew his claim for Aspect. Instead, he and Sabellian both realized they were not suited, instead turning to their brother Ebyssian, who had been counseling them the entire time, to become the new Aspect. After Ebyssian was acknowledged as the new Earth-Warder by Alexstrasza, Wrathion was made the diplomat of the black dragonflight to lead alongside him and Sabellian.

Wrathion Egg

The Inv egg 09 [Purified Black Dragon Egg], which contains the unborn black whelp Wrathion.

The ambitious red dragon Rheastrasza, also known by her goblin guise Rhea, traveled to the Badlands to research the black dragonflight and to find a way to purify them. She hired a group of mercenaries,[10] and has captured the black dragon, Nyxondra, to force her to lay eggs for the experiments, in hopes of laying an uncorrupted black dragon egg.[11] It was later revealed that Nyxondra was in fact a sister of Onyxia,[12] and thus a daughter of Deathwing himself, the grandfather of Wrathion.


Eventually, Rheastrasza and Dr. Hieronymus Blam succeeded in creating a purified black dragon egg with an ancient titan device, a black whelp corpse, a wild black dragon egg and one of Nyxondra's eggs.[13] She constantly moved around to avoid being found by agents of the black dragonflight, who wanted to destroy the egg. She was however killed by Deathwing in the end, who was after the egg.[14] The egg he destroyed, however, was not the purified one, but Rheastrasza's own egg. Hieronymus Blam had already moved the real purified egg to a safer location, away from the Badlands, so it could continue to grow, out of Deathwing's sight.[15] The egg was hidden under the care of Corastrasza in Vermillion Redoubt, a Red dragonflight outpost in the Twilight Highlands.[16]

However, six months later, shortly before he was born, the egg was stolen by the assassins of Ravenholdt. Consequently, the red dragonflight sent the red drake Mostrasz and a rogue adventurer to find it. The trail led them to Ravenholdt Manor,[16][17] in the northeast of Hillsbrad Foothills, where it was revealed that Wrathion has hatched and was now in charge of the whole operation.[18][19]

The Black Prince[]

“Tell them that I am free of my father's madness, and I will be free of them as well. I am to be left alone: this will be my first and only warning.”

— Wrathion's message for the red dragonflight
Wrathion TCG

Wrathion, the Black Prince.

Though a whelping, Wrathion was wise and powerful beyond his years. Free of Deathwing's control, he saw with clear eyes what had become of the black dragons, and recognized the threat they posed to Azeroth. He knew of only one way to purify the flight: death. Thus, he launched a brutal campaign to assassinate the world's remaining black dragons.[20]

On his first encounter with the rogue adventurer, he revealed that like all dragons he was conscious in his egg, listening to the plots and intrigues about him, and understood that he was born to be a prisoner. Therefore, he announced that he intended to stay free, and that the rogue adventurer were valuable to him, as they managed to reach him by eluding all his guards in the manor. At the same time, the right hand of the Black Prince, Fahrad, brought Mostrasz into the cellar after he captured him. Wrathion introduced himself to the latter as his former prisoner, and ordered him to serve as a messenger to his dragonflight, announcing that he was free from his father's corruption, that he intended to remain free, that Deathwing's minions should be afraid of him, and that this warning was the first and the last. He then ordered Fahrad to throw him out and to break his legs, before resuming his conversation with the rogue adventurer, explaining that dark dragons frequently disguise themselves as mortals to create chaos around them, and that the last survivors of the black dragonflight must be found and eliminated, as they are threats to Wrathion and Azeroth itself. In exchange for rewards, they agreed to help the Black Prince, and their first mission was located in the Ruins of Gilneas.[21][22]

As the only pure member of his dragonflight, Wrathion decided that it was his misson to make sure that all his corrupted brothers and sisters must be destroyed. The first of them was Lord Hiram Creed, a black dragon disguised as an affluent Gilnean noble who manipulated a group of Gilnean humans and worgen named the Blackhowl in Gilneas City, secretly infecting them with his own draconic blood. As none of Ravenholdt's assassins were able to infiltrate the city, the rogue adventurer was sent to assassinate the Drakonid, and managed to kill him, to the surprise of the Black Prince who was greatly impressed.[23] He rewarded them with the daggers named Vengeance and Fear, and promised them more powers if they returned with some spell reagents acquired from Deathwing's minions.[24]

To Wrathion's surprise, his rogue champion returned some weeks later with what he asked, and eager for another assignment.[25] In order to improve the daggers he offered them, he ordered the elimination of Nalice,[26] a black dragon who served as the Ambassador of the Black Dragonflight in the Wyrmrest Accord, but who mysteriously disappeared from Wyrmrest Temple in the wake of Deathwing's reemergence and his shattering of Azeroth. She was found by the Black Prince and his agents, hiding with her Blackwyrm Cult in the Master's Cellar beneath Karazhan, researching arcane secrets buried beneath the foundation to perform some sort of arcane experiments.[27] Pleasantly surprised by their victory, Wrathion used Nalice's blood to upgrade the vicious twin daggers of his favorite assassin,[28] before dispatching them again into the fray to collect more resources.[29]

After some weeks, Wrathion greeted his rogue champion fresh and ready for his hardest assignment, ignoring Fahrad's warnings, he ordered the adventurer to kill his father. He warned them not to underestimate Deathwing, and that it would be necessary to annihilate him completely, otherwise the heart of his madness in his broken body would try to destroy them. He confessed that he wanted to help them, but couldn't bring himself to do so, as the Black Aspect was the only dragon he feared. In secret, he told himself that it was the last time he saw his champion, not imagining for even a moment that they could accomplish their mission.[30][31] But once again, he underestimated them, and ultimately, his favorite assassin returned triumphant to collect their final reward after they destroyed the Worldbreaker with the heroes of Azeroth.

However, prior to their arrival, the red dragonflight attacked Ravenholdt Manor to kill Wrathion, the latter managed to survive and killed Mostrasz himself, although many of its agents were killed in the battle. After rewarding his rogue champion one last time with Golad, Twilight of Aspects and Tiriosh, Nightmare of Ages, the legendary Fangs of the Father, he announced his final mission, to kill the last black dragon, Fahrad himself. The Black Prince revealed that he already knew the truth since the beginning, thanking the latter for saving him while he was still in his egg, but announced that as a black dragon he was also a victim of the corruption of the Old Gods and must be eliminated. Despite Fahrad insisting that he was in control, the Old Gods' voices in his head were angered by Wrathion's actions and forced Fahrad to try to kill the Black Prince, as he was too difficult to control. As Fahrad revealed his true nature, Wrathion announced that he would never be controlled, that the red dragonflight had no idea what they unleashed when they had experimented on his egg, before he immobilized his former ally and ordered the rogue adventurer to deal the killing blow with his new powers.[32]

Following their victory, Wrathion announced that to his knowledge he was the last black dragon in Azeroth, and that it was time for him to disappear, expecting to meet his rogue champion once again in the future. With his destiny in his own hands, he left the assassins of Ravenholdt behind to seek his destiny elsewhere, as he heard rumors of a new land "beyond the mists of the sea".[33]

With his bloody work done, Wrathion stood as one of the last living black dragons.[20]

Mists of Pandaria[]

Wrathion at Tavern in the Mists

Wrathion at the Tavern in the Mists.

In Pandaria, Wrathion made his base in the Tavern in the Mists, which is found in the Veiled Stair, after experiencing a vision of Azeroth's destruction.[34] To prevent his vision from becoming a reality, Wrathion sent invitations to adventurers from all walks of life to aid him in shaping the course of the coming conflict.[35]

Wrathion foreshadowed a terrible threat to Azeroth coming, a threat that a divided Azeroth couldn't hope to stand against; the Burning Legion. Thus he believed the only way to prepare Azeroth for the coming threat was to have one faction win and dominate the other. He advised adventurers to bring a swift end to the Alliance-Horde war and gave his unwavering support to whichever faction the adventurer belonged to.[36]

Wrathion challenged the adventurers he recruited to prove their strength to him by vanquishing the mogu minions who inhabit Shan'ze Dao, and the sha-corrupted mantid swarming the Dread Wastes. He also tasked adventurers to acquire sigils of power and wisdom from fallen heroes in the Mogu'shan Vaults, the Heart of Fear, or the Terrace of Endless Spring.[37] After slaying enough of these enemies to earn an honored reputation with him,[38] Wrathion challenged the adventurer to hunt down the Sha of Fear and despoil it of its Chimera of Fear. After taking down the sha at the Terrace of Endless Spring,[39] and accomplishing all of his undertakings, Wrathion took the adventurers to Mason's Folly where he used the combined powers of the sigils of power and wisdom; as well as the chimera of fear to create a sha-touched gem. After Wrathion gifted the gem to his champion,[40] he asked them to let him know when their faction's naval fleet arrived; and also proclaimed that no matter how unsavory his methods become, he would remain resolute in his protection of Azeroth.[41]


After the faction's fleet arrived in Pandaria, Wrathion wanted to test the adventurer's commitment to the Alliance-Horde war and thus tasked them to kill enemy faction soldiers at the shores in order to prove that their faction deserves to win the war.[42] Then, in the Tavern in the Mists, Wrathion summoned images of King Varian Wrynn and Warchief Garrosh Hellscream to talk about their pasts and how they fared as leaders.[43] Wrathion also wanted to test the adventurer's valor by having them gather 3,000 Pvecurrency-valor [Valor Points]. He used his blood to see through their eyes, thus monitoring their progress.[44] Afterwards, Wrathion requested that they kill their opposing faction's commander in Krasarang Wilds.[45] In addition to slaughtering the enemy commander, Wrathion required that they achieve a victory in both Silvershard Mines and Temple of Kotmogu.[46][47] After all these tasks, he brought up the faction leaders again and discussed their merits as leaders and what he's learned about each respective faction. He asked the adventurers to continue to hone their skills in Pandaria and then armed them with the Eye of the Black Prince to increase their prowess. At last, he brought up about a new threat: Emperor Lei Shen, the Thunder King.[48][49]

Gods and Monsters - Wrathion and Deathwing

Wrathion and Deathwing in Lorewalker Cho's story.

In the Tavern in the Mists, while Anduin Wrynn was recovering from his wounds, he played the pandaren board game jihui with Wrathion. Both of them have been discussing current events and as they played, they discussed Lei Shen the Thunder King, and his leadership style; to which they disagreed with each other if whether his tyrannical and brutal reign should be applauded or not. Anduin disapproved of Wrathion's hard cutthroat outlook and Wrathion likewise thought Anduin too soft. At this point, Wrathion recruited the adventurer to act as his champion and to show his might by terrorizing any mogu, Zandalari, or saurok they could find.

As Wrathion desired to know the origin and source of mogu power, Azeroth's adventurers aided the Black Prince in finding out what it was. The search for information took them into the depths of the Thunder King's Palace, the Throne of Thunder, where they collected for him 20 Secrets of the Empire and 40 Trillium Bars.[50] Wrathion and the adventurer then progressed to the Thunder Forges where he planed to use all the trillium they gathered to forge an instrument of power that he claimed he would used for the purpose of "world peace". Once they got the Thunder Forge up and running, Wrathion tasked the adventurer to defend the Celestial Blacksmith from the sha until it finished forging the Lightning Lance. Once completed, Wrathion's champion used the Lightning Lance to vanquish the Sha Amalgamation. Although the Lightning Lance proved itself a useful weapon, it needed to be charged by the power of the Thunder King in order to wake it from its dormancy.[51] Wrathion then asked his champion to assault the Foot of Lei Shen and to use the Lightning Lance on Storm Lord Nalak before slaying the beast.[52] From the mogu artifacts the adventurer collected, Wrathion learned how to create the legendary metagem, Crown of the Heavens. After imbuing the Lightning Lance with Nalak's power, the adventurer and Wrathion returned to Mason's Folly where they created the Sha-Touched gem. There, Wrathion used the Lightning Lance to create the Crown of Heaven, which he gifted to his champion.[53]

Anduin distrusted Wrathion and warned the adventurer to think twice before putting that thing on their head. As Wrathion needed more information to piece together how the mogu related to the titans, he sent the adventurer back to the Throne of Thunder to collect 12 Titan Runestones, which an image of Wrathion used to uncover mogu history as he translated the stones.[54]

Once all of them have been translated, Wrathion wanted the adventurer to kill Lei Shen himself, to bring him the Heart of the Thunder King, and end the Thunder King's reign once and for all. Once the heart was given to Wrathion, he ate it and absorbed its titan magic. A glowing light appeared, showing Wrathion cosmic visions and spoke through Wrathion of a fallen titan that some mysterious power sought to rebuild. As the light faded away, Wrathion seemed to have forgotten all the information and thought the predecessors of the titans' power have forgotten as well. Not even Anduin could comprehend the message. To that regard, it was the message that the mogu didn't remember all this time, and Wrathion laughed at the irony of it. Anduin still didn't trust Wrathion, and the latter told him that it was wise that he didn't. He then asked the adventurer to give him time to "digest" what he has learned.[55]


A Pandaren Legend - Wrathion wings

Wrathion empowering the Achievement zone cataclysm [Timeless Essence of the Black Dragonflight].

After Lei Shen was dead, and his artifacts were in the hands of the Horde and Alliance, Wrathion wanted to empower his champion with the full array of his draconic power, but their mortal body wasn't capable of holding such power. Instead, Wrathion planed to create a cloak of virtue that they could imbue with the power of the August Celestials and some of his own as well. To create such a vessel, Wrathion required the blessings of all the August Celestials, which was only granted to those who completed their challenges. Thus Wrathion and his champion set off for the celestials' temples to fulfill their quest.

At Niuzao Temple, Niuzao tested the adventurer's fortitude; at the Temple of the Red Crane, Chi-Ji tested their hope; at the Temple of the White Tiger, Xuen tested their strength; and at the Temple of the Jade Serpent, Yu'lon tested their wisdom.[56] With the blessing of each of the celestials, Wrathion was able to create the Cloak of Virtue at Mason's Folly, which he gifted to his champion. Although the cloak of virtue granted the champion the power of the celestials, Wrathion was still searching for a way to imbue his own draconic power onto the cloak.[57]

Siege of Orgrimmar[]

Judgment of the Black Prince - Wrathion wroth

Wrathion breathes fire in a fit of anger.

Wrathion was eager to explore the secrets of the Timeless Isle, and with good reason: the island held the secret of imbuing celestial cloaks with his own formidable draconic power.[58] Wrathion tasked his champion to collect 5,000 Timeless Coins so that he could deconstruct their mysterious power in order to enhance his champion's cloak.[59] He also challenged his champion to showcase their capabilities to the public of the Celestial Court by defeating the August Celestials in combat.[60] Bearers of this new legendary-quality cloak were able to do battle with the deadly Ordos atop the Timeless Isle, but that wasn't Wrathion's ultimate goal. Instead, the black prince hoped to send his empowered cloak-bearers into the bowels of Orgrimmar to overthrow Warchief Garrosh Hellscream himself. Wrathion also participated in the Celestial Tournament with his companions - Alex, Dah'da, and Cindy. After the Celestials are defeated, Wrathion, Lorewalker Cho and the adventurer return to the Seat of Knowledge where they narrate the legend of the adventurer. Cho wished for the legend to portray the adventurer as a hero, liberator, and protector, while Wrathion wished to see them as a conqueror with none able to stand in their way.[61] After the legend was done, Wrathion sent the adventurer to the Siege of Orgrimmar to fulfill his hopes.

When the adventurer arrived back in the Tavern in the Mists, Wrathion was pacing around the room; awaiting information about what happened during the Siege of Orgrimmar. The adventurer told him about what happened in Orgrimmar and he was not happy with the outcome: calling Varian Wrynn a fool for allowing the Horde to continue existing. Tong the Fixer was infuriated with his constant speaking and his lack of understanding of the lessons of Pandaria. Tong said that the Alliance and the Horde were not strong despite each other, they were strong because of one another. Wrathion thought he was just a fool waiter, and started walking out the Tavern and proclaimed for the battle to come, he would leave nothing to chance.[62]

War Crimes[]

WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Wrathion, alongside his bodyguards, Right and Left, attended the trial of Garrosh Hellscream, frequently corresponding with Anduin Wrynn during intermissions. He came to acknowledge the prince of Stormwind as a personal friend, though he told him that his kind heart and desire to see good in the world would be his undoing. He sat as far from Alexstrasza as he could.

Eventually, Wrathion revealed himself to be working with Kairozdormu and the Infinite dragonflight to free Garrosh and send him back in time to the Draenor of thirty-five years ago. After incapacitating the Chu brothers so he could lock up Chromie for investigating Kairoz, Wrathion was confronted by Anduin, who attempted to deter his friend from freeing the captured warchief. Proclaiming that as the last of the black dragonflight, the protection of Azeroth now falls to him, Wrathion knocked Anduin out and took his leave. Despite his actions, Wrathion believed this would be best for Azeroth in the coming conflict with the Legion, and maintained hope that Anduin would eventually understand his motives and even stand with him as a brother when the time comes.[5]

Warlords of Draenor[]

Wrathion, having traveled to the alternate Draenor after the Dark Portal became connected to it, traveled to Admiral Taylor's Garrison in the Spires of Arak, brought there by Sir Edward. Wrathion sought asylum in the Garrison, claiming he had somehow angered the local ogres. As Wrathion was a wanted fugitive of the Alliance following the events of Garrosh's trial, the troops led by Lady Claudia took aim. Admiral Taylor claimed that Wrathion would be a "guest" in the Garrison provided he stay under house arrest and full-time guard.

Wrathion provided Taylor's Garrison the resources to build an inn, and when Taylor confronted him about it Wrathion told him not to trust Ephial. Taylor offered a group of guards money to keep a close eye on Wrathion, but Wrathion had already paid those very same guards to watch Taylor. When Taylor left to participate in the Ring of Blood, Wrathion left the Garrison and took several of Taylor's best followers with him.[63]

Wrathion remained in hiding somewhere on Draenor until he made a minor cameo at Khadgar's Tower once the adventurer had to return the Tomes of Chaos to Cordana Felsong. Wrathion was momentarily seen sitting on a Kirin Tor banner in whelp form until seeing his former ally, upon which he quickly flew off to parts unknown.[64]


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, Wrathion wandered around Azeroth.[65]

Deaths of Chromie

When Chronormu and an adventurer discovered that the former was going to die in the near future, they began searching for clues to who could be behind her assassination across the future Dragonshrines in Dragonblight. At the pathway leading into the Obsidian Dragonshrine, they found Wrathion, who was bemused by skeletons occupying the shrine even though the dragons had abandoned it for some years, musing that his father would never have approved. Chromie and the adventurer confronted Wrathion, thinking he may have known something, and Wrathion was ashamed that Chromie suspected him simply for being a black dragon. As Wrathion explained, he knew nothing about the attack and was simply visiting Northrend for "[his] own amusement", but was surprised to see a demonic infestation at the Obsidian Dragonshrine. He reminded Chromie and the adventurer that if they were looking for someone who might take umbrage at a dragon, they should start with the undead and whoever was controlling them. Chromie agreed that Wrathion made a fair point and the two of them left him to search inside the dragonshrine.[66]

Battle for Azeroth[]

Battle for Azeroth This section concerns content related to Battle for Azeroth.

After finding an Unscarred Black Scale from a young black dragon while on an island expedition, the adventurer knew that Wrathion would want to hear about it and sought him out at Blackrock Mountain. Though Wrathion was not there himself, one of his Blacktalon Agents was. She revealed to the adventurer that Wrathion was searching for the Dragon Isles and that other dragons had not been forthcoming in information.[67]

One of Wrathion's Blacktalon Watchers was in the former lair of Deathwing, observing as another uncorrupted black dragon, Ebyssian, took an essence of the black dragonflight's magic to help heal the world.[68] Later, more Blacktalon Watchers could be found in Nazjatar and in the Blackrock Mountain.

When Wrathion was next seen, he had physically matured significantly, his humanoid form now resembling a young man with jet black hair, a short beard, and red, burning eyes. He sought out the Shen'dralar library in Dire Maul,[69] as well as the aid of the Lorewalkers and Shado-Pan,[70] in order to find a way to counter the Old Gods' corruption. He also traveled to the Vault of Archavon in Wintergrasp, hoping that it would contain information on the Forge of Origination which, he felt, would be the key to defeating the Old Gods for good. Unfortunately, the giants that watched over the Vault were not trusting of him.[71] Wrathion then journeyed to Karazhan, where he received information from the library that allowed him to craft a potion that could cleanse someone of Old God corruption. While within the tower, Wrathion also met with the shade of Medivh, who encouraged him that while Wrathion could not change the past, he could forge a new legacy to leave for the future.[72] As all this was going on, the Old Gods reached out to another uncorrupted black dragon, Ebyssian, and began to corrupt him. At the behest of Kalecgos, the adventurer sought out Wrathion for aid, and it turned out that the Old Gods' servants were also in pursuit of the Black Prince. While neither of them found Wrathion himself, the adventurer was able to find Wrathion's potion in Karazhan and used it to save Ebyssian.[73]

As the Alliance and the Horde defeated Azshara, and in the process let N'Zoth free from its prison, the Horde and the Alliance had to consider how to deal with the new threat looming. Wrathion, who had not been seen since Garrosh was freed, appeared in Stormwind City with Magni. He came to advise Anduin on how to deal with N'Zoth. Wrathion told Anduin that the armies of Stormwind would be useless. N'Zoth will strike in the mind.[74] Later he joined Magni back at the Chamber of Heart and guided the adventurers in dealing with the visions of N'Zoth. Revealing that the best way to protect one's mind against the Old Gods required an object pure corruption, Wrathion and adventurers ventured to Blackwing Descent atop the Blackrock Mountain in Burning Steppes. Upon arriving, the pair discovered that N'Zoth's agents had seized control of Nefarian's liar, and Dark Inquisitor Xanesh planned on making Nefarian's legacy their own. Amidst the fighting, Wrathion was captured with the Dark Inquisitor revealing her intentions to use his essence to resurrect both Nefarian and Onyxia as tools of war for N'Zoth. However, Xanesh failed when adventurers freed Wrathion, who declared that the black dragonflight would purge N'Zoth from Azeroth. Following Xanesh's retreat into Ny'alotha, Wrathion destroyed the remains of Nefarian and Onyxia and used the Corrupt Black Dragonscales left behind to create Ashjra'kamas. Declaring that this cloak was all that remained of the once-proud black dragonflight, Wrathion revealed that it would defend them from sanity loss and the corruption of N'Zoth.[75]

Sometime after Wrathion arrived to the Chamber of Heart, Ebyssian inquired as to how the Black Prince had known he had begun to hear N'Zoth's whispers. In response, Wrathion admitted that he had one of his agents watching over him due to knowing that Ebyssian would become vulnerable upon leaving Highmountain. In a surprise, Ebyssian remarked that he was unaware that Wrathion had such a personal concern for his well-being, causing the younger dragon to remark that they were brothers and the only one that Wrathion had left.[76]

Wrathion stabs N'Zoth

Wrathion stabs the Carapace of N'Zoth with Xal'atath, helping the heroes to defeat the Old God.

As adventurers entered Ny'alotha they had to face Wrathion, the Black Emperor, who was supposedly a Wrathion who had given in to the Old Gods' corruption, but after killing it they discovered that it was a faceless one in disguise rather than the Black Prince himself. Wrathion was present within the realm of N'Zoth, however. He was given the Blade of the Black Empire by Azshara who told him to stab N'Zoth in the heart with it.[77] Wrathion instead stabbed the Carapace of N'Zoth which during the fight with the Fury of N'Zoth helped adventurers regain their sanity by teleporting back to him. Following the death of N'Zoth, when asked as to what lied next for him, Wrathion remarked that though the Old Gods had been vanquished, they were but one threat to Azeroth and that many more lurked on the horizon and in the shadows. He further declared that from this day forth the black dragonflight will honor its ancient charge and stand in defense of Azeroth, along with its champions.

The adventurers also brought forth young dragons of the twilight dragonflight, ones which had been raised inside N'Zoth's carapace and so been exposed more directly to his corruption. Wrathion clears the dragons' minds of the whispers, with the promise that they, as well as he himself, will find themselves again one day despite their pasts.[78]

The Vow Eternal[]

WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

While staying at the Summer's Rest inn in Pandaria in his search for the Dragon Isles, Wrathion has a nightmare of transforming into Deathwing. In this nightmare he at first serves as the uncorrupted Earth-Warder and leader of the black dragonflight, only for a shadow to wash over him and turn him into his father. He is attacked by his allies, not only the Aspects and their flights but even his fellow black dragons.

He later attends the wedding of Thalyssra and Lor'themar Theron in Suramar. At the reception he encounters Kurog Grimtotem, who accuses all dragons of being unnatural but especially him because of the nature of his birth. Already stressed, Kurog's egging on makes Wrathion snap and threaten him, but Kalecgos intervenes before Wrathion can go too far. With Thalyssra's arrival to see what the commotion was, Kurog leaves while threatening that soon they would all know the true power of the tauren. Wrathion is rocked by what he had almost done, and remembers his nightmare where he turned into Deathwing with fear.

Wrathion leaves for the vineyard, and Kalecgos follows him with two glasses of arcwine. The two discuss the black dragonflight's poor reputation and the falls of both Neltharion and Malygos. They muse on how both of their flights' former Aspects had been best friends, and Wrathion wonders if the two of them couldn't spark a friendship as well. Kalec turns the conversation to the Dragon Isles, and Wrathion admits he has not learned anything new. Chromie had seemed confused when Wrathion had asked, Ysera is dead so can't be asked, and Nozdormu wouldn't even grant him an audience. Even Alexstrasza had only told him that the isles were lost.

Kalec and Wrathion both realize that they are experiencing a sensation of loneliness, or a weight on their chest, of feeling something they could not articulate that they wanted but could not have. The two of them doubt both experiencing this could be a coincidence, and wonder if other dragons are experiencing it as well. The two travel to Wyrmrest Temple to ask Alexstrasza further questions, where they discover that many other dragons have also assembled in a mass gathering at the temple's base, all feeling the same sensation. Rather than wait, Wrathion flies to the top of the temple to speak to Alexstrasza personally.

Atop the temple, he finds not only Alexstrasza but Nozdormu and Merithra as well. Alexstrasza tells him that they have heard the call of the reawakening Dragon Isles, a sensation reaching out to the hearts of all dragons. The feeling that Wrathion and all the others were feeling is homesickness, and Wrathion realizes he is finally being welcomed, and has a place to belong. The feeling of emptiness in his heart becomes one of joy, and he decides that his recurring nightmare is not a forecast of doom, but a challenge to be conquered. Now that he has a home, Wrathion vows that it will be him, not Deathwing, that will guide the black dragons into a new future.[79]

Wrathion and Raszageth

Wrathion meets Raszageth the Storm-Eater.

Wrathion struggled as to whether he truly desired to be the leader of the black dragonflight. Nevertheless, with the return of the Dragon Isles to Azeroth, he returned to his flight's ancient homeland. Despite their past disagreements, Alexstrasza offered him guidance.[80]

When the Dragon Isles were uncovered, Ebyssian and Wrathion traveled to the Forbidden Reach and discovered the dracthyr, ancient creations of Neltharion that had been in stasis for 20,000 years. They helped the dracthyr battle the invading Primalists. Upon his arrival at the Froststone Vault, Wrathion saw Kurog Grimtotem breaking the vault seal and tried to stop him, but it was too late, and the Black Prince crashed to the ground after being knocked by debris from the just-destroyed prison. Coming to his senses, he faced the freed Primal Incarnate Raszageth, who recognized him as a dragon of the Black dragonflight. After hearing from Wrathion his wish to become the new Aspect of the black dragons, Raszageth asked him if he wanted to meet the same fate as Neltharion, whose she learned the death during her imprisonment, but finally decided to let him go as a messenger for Alexstrasza, ordering him to announce that the Primalists would make sure to cleanse the world of the titans' "stain".

After Nozdormu forced the Primalists to flee, the Bronze Aspect told the dracthyr to warn the nations of the world of the oncoming threat, and Wrathion took the Obsidian Warders to Stormwind to introduce them to the Alliance. Afterward, Wrathion went to ask the Aspects who Raszageth was, and learned that she and the rest of the Incarnates were ancient enemies of the Aspects who sought to cleanse the world of the titans' "stain". The Aspects decided to reclaim the powers they had lost when they defeated Deathwing, for without that power they wouldn't be able to defeat the Incarnates.

When Wrathion brought Scalecommander Azurathel and the Obsidian Warders to Stormwind City, he mentioned that they would be well received through its connections with the leaders of the city. However, the opposite happened, and they were soon received by the Stormwind Army and the Spymaster Mathias Shaw who reminded the black dragon that he has been warned against making unannounced visits, especially when he brings company. In order to calm the situation, Wrathion apologized and announced his request to deliver a message from the Dragon Aspects to Lord Commander Turalyon. The Spymaster agreed to allow the dracthyr to visit the city but warned them that the SI:7 would be watching them closely and that the responsibility of their actions would fall on the Black Prince.[81] In the Stormwind Keep, Wrathion briefed Turalyon on the recent events, and extended the Aspects' invitation to the Dragon Isles. During a conversation between them and Scalecommander Azurathel, he thanked Turalyon for accepting the invitation and then mentioned that the Dragon Queen insisted that the Alliance should not bring any conflict to the islands with the Horde. After Turalyon claimed that the Alliance would honor its truce with the Horde, and that he instructed the Explorers' League to work in concert with the Reliquary, the Black Prince announced that he was delighted with the turn of events, and that it was time to prepare the expedition for departure to the Dragon Isles.[82]

After Khadgar arrived and shared that the Aspects sought to restore their former powers to fight against Raszageth, Wrathion directed adventurers with finding a disc within Uldaman, only to learn from them that the infinite dragonflight led by Chrono-Lord Deios had attacked and sent the disc to be lost through time. After receiving the news, he declared that the infinites always had some kind of plan, and that he would let Alexstrasza know that they would need to find another way for the Aspects to restore their powers.[83]

He then moved on ahead to the Dragon Isles, where he, alongside Majordomo Selistra, planned on awaiting at Wingrest Embassy in the Waking Shores for the Dragonscale Expedition to arrive.[84] However when the expedition arrived they were nowhere to be seen, having left the area, and subsequently discovering that the Djaradin had awakened from their long slumber on the isles and destroyed Dragonheart Outpost.[85] After directing Sendrax and adventures with aiding the outpost, the pair left to keep the djaradin contained inside Scalecracker Keep.[86] After the outpost was successfully evacuated, Wrathion noted that the refugees would be safe at the Ruby Life Pools, as not even the djaradin would not raise arms against the might of Queen Alexstrasza herself.[87]

Turning his attention to the djaradin within the keep, Wrathion called for the deaths of their leaders.[88] He also called for the collection of the intel from his Blacktalon agents within the keep, and welcomed any additional information that adventurers could discover.[89][90] After discovering that the djaradin intended to claim the Obsidian Citadel, the black dragonflight's seat of power, an enraged Wrathion immediately rushed off to stop them. However, he soon realized that he needed aid and so went to recruit Alexstrasza, only to discover her in the midst of conflict with Raszageth, and was quick to rush in to rescue her. An amused Raszageth decided to leave the pair, as she wanted Alexstrasza to watch as everything she cared for was destroyed before killing her.[91]

Alexstrasza offered her gratitude to Wrathion, who was quick to try and recruit her and her flight's aid in claiming the Obsidian Citadel from the djaradin. Alexstrasza agreed to do, after they had seen to the safety of the eggs, a declaration that confused Wrathion now that Raszageth had left. However, Alexstrasza was quick to point out that Wrathion didn't know her as she did, that she was an unpredictable foe, and that for now the red dragonflight must remain at the Life Pools to safeguard their future. Wrathion was quick to question if it was the dragon's future or her flights that she sought to safeguard, as the Obsidian Citadel was built to defend all the Dragon Isles, and implored that she couldn't abandon the legacy of his flight to the hands of their enemies. In response, she remarked that she would have expected him to care more for the protection of helpless eggs. Wrathion subsequently departed, determined to claim the citadel with the aid of his Blacktalon.[92]

Having nothing but concern for Wrathion, she enlisted adventurers to go and aid him in her stead, while she helped focus on protecting the new generation of dragonkind. Wrathion warmly welcomed their aid, believing that with their presence his plans could succeed.[93] After having his forces tested and going over their intel, Wrathion was prepared to move forward, waiving away any concerns about their low numbers and arrogantly declaring himself an "incalculable advantage" and that he would not be denied his legacy.[94] He then gave the order to begin the assault, taking control of the Burning Ascent in the process, and as the proper assault on the citadel itself began he was stunned to discover Sabellian and his brood (including a clutch of black dragon eggs) arriving to aid in the fight. After a brief introduction with one another, the pair moved forward in striking against their enemies, ultimately resulting in them claiming the upper courtyard of the citadel and the Obsidian Oathstone.[95][96] However despite this victory, Wrathion found himself surprised as Sabellian announced his own intentions to become the Neltharion's successor as Aspect, an act he rejected due to viewing that as his own destiny. Thus a competition between the two was born for the Aspectship of the black dragonflight.[97]

Each claimant was quick to try and enlist adventures to their side and their followers eagerly backed them up. However, while Sabellian's focus was on how he had helped his fellow black dragons, Wrathion was focused on the success of his ends-of-the-means approached, veering into propaganda with Right and Left justifying his liberation of Garrosh Hellscream from his trial as necessary to prepare Azeroth for the third invasion of the Burning Legion, an invasion that was inadvertency started by Garrosh's liberation, since it ultimately led to Gul'dan's arrival to Azeroth, where he would start the said invasion.[98][99] Wrathion's absence during the invasion was not commented on and it was shown that the bulk of Wrathion's support base was his Blacktalon agents, while the majority of Sabellian's support base were other black dragons.

As Sabellian went to deliver the black dragon eggs to the Ruby Pools, Wrathion insisted on accompanying him. As the pair traveled to the Ruby Lifeshrine via cart, Sabellian insisted they remain incognito, even when Wrathion pointed out that it was obvious that ruse had failed. After various attacks were fended off, the pair were attacked by Thaladrax, who destroyed the cart and the eggs within. An outraged Wrathion viewed this as a sign that the others would see reason and pick their new leader and rushed off to inform Alexstrasza.[100] When the Dragon Queen demanded answers, Sabellian revealed that he had used himself and Wrathion as bait to attract their enemies' attention, while his clutch of black dragons safely traveled by air to deliver the eggs. He then pledged his loyalty and that of his flight as Neltharion's heir to her, to Wrathion's outrage. However before he could protest, Alexstrasza stepped in and remarked that while she would take care of the eggs, she would not get involved in their bickering and the matter of Aspectship between them was a matter for the black, not the red, to decide.[101]

Wrathion and Sabellian remained at the Ruby Lifeshrine for a time to see Mother Elion, who described them as "squabbling like children", to restore their flight's place there and defended the area during the Primalist attack.[102]

Wrathion and Sabellian then returned to the Obsidian Citadel, continuing their battle against the djaradin, while accepting pledges of loyalty from champions of the Horde and Alliance.

Embers of Neltharion[]

After the Incarnates opened the way into the Zaralek Cavern, Alexstrasza called upon Wrathion, Ebyssian, Sabellian, and the adventurer to enter and deal with Fyrakk. After the adventurer arrived to the Seat of the Aspects, Wrathion gave them the Inv 10 inscription2 book1 color1 [Untranslated Obsidian Tome], on the grounds that he didn't have the time to translate it himself and that he had always found them determined when it came to mysteries.[103][104] While Sabellian and Wrathion immediately set off to the caverns, Ebyssian detoured and recruited Scalecommander Emberthal to their mission. Upon their arrival Wrathion found himself held at spearpoint by Khasar, Baba, and Raidon, while Sabellian observed Iridikron's Gambit.[105] Knowing that the the Shikaar had worked alongside the adventurer before, Wrathion turned to them to resolve the matter and confirm what had transpired. After confirming that Fyrakk was responsible for the death Shalkeel, Wrathion joined Sabellian in observing Iridikron's Gambit. He noted how the tunnel was massive and couldn't help but wonder Fyrakk alone entered or if he came with an army.[106]

Believing it to be a tactical mistake to wait any longer for Ebyssian and Emberthal to arrive, the pair ventured into the Zaralek Cavern and encountered Primalists forces. As they prepared to battle, Wrathion heard a voice, but it turned to the back of his mind as he rushed forward to bring terror to his enemies. This strategy clashed with Sabellian, who wanted to take a stealth approach and believed that Wrathion was allowing himself to be baited by Summitshaper Lorac. Even as they clashed side by side against the Primalists, the pair continued to bicker about who would ascend to the obsidian throne. In the aftermath of Lorac's death, Sabellian admitted Wrathion had acquitted himself well in the fight, causing the Black Prince to thank him, only for Sabellian to promise to find a place for him among his troops. About to argue, once more, about who were to be the Aspect of the black dragonflight, Wrathion discovered Fyrakk approaching them and called out a warning to Sabellian, even as the Incarnate attacked. As they lay on the ground, the group was taken captive by deepflayers and taken to the Deepflayer Nest.[107]

Wrathion was later rescued from captivity by the adventurer through the guidance of their new ally the niffen Elder Honeypelt. The group then were able to escape and reunite with Sabellian, who was unimpressed with Wrathion and admitted that he expected more from the Black Prince after listening to him boast about he had single-handedly slain N'Zoth. Wrathion, however, retorted that it was a team effort, something Sabellian was incapable of understanding. This caused an outraged Sabellian to declare that they were the black dragonflight, that it meant something, and that Neltharion would have never fallen to such a foe. Wrathion was quick to call him out on comparing himself to their father and declared that he had shown his true colors, if that was his aspiration. Sabellian then broke away to investigate a relic that reminded him that used to belong to Neltharion, while Wrathion not realizing that his rival was doing merely thought he was walked away from, and decided to play that game.[108]

Six Hundred Feet Under

Wrathion with Sabellian, Ebyssian, and Scalecommander Emberthal.

Before the group moved forward, Wrathion admitted that while his relationship with Sabellian was strained, their behavior was out of line, and reveal that there was something within Zaralek testing their mental defenses. Though determined to speak to Sabellian at his own pace, Wrathion formally apologized to the adventurer and Honeypelt, and was subsequently forgiven.[109] As infuriating as he found Sabellian, he directed with adventurers with checking on him, as he was still family and he had no wish to see become dinner to the deepflayers.[110] In time, Sabellian, Wrathion, Honeypelt, and the adventurer regrouped and traveled as one to Loamm, where Wrathion and Sabellian discovered that the Sundered Flame had also arrived to Zaralek. Upon reaching the city, the dragons were reunited with Ebyssian and Emberthal.[111] As the black dragons and Emberthal gathered, Sabellian shared news of the Sundered Flame and revealed that they sought Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible, a laboratory once used by Neltharion. In response, Wrathion declared that he would go and search for Aberrus, quietly and alone, a move given tactic permission by Ebyssian who warned him to stay hidden.[112]

As Wrathion searched for Aberrus, Ebyssian and Emberthal set off to Nal ks'kol. While they were gone, Wrathion returned to the town and received from Sabellian an invitation to join his troops, with a high-ranking position, but Wrathion refused still convinced that he should become the Aspect of the flight. When Ebyssian and Emberthal returned, they found themselves questioned by the pair as to what treasures he and Emberthal had found. Unimpressed with their content, he questioned what was truly important was who was the rightful heir to a legacy of deceit, control, and fear. When Sabellian and Wrathion grew outraged at the destruction of the Oathbinder, Ebyssian called them out on their bickering, declared that Emberthal had done right for her people, and encouraged them to let go of the past, as their flight needed them here and now.[113]

As Ebyssian and Sabellian departed to find Fyrakk, Wrathion himself left the town, either for his own reasons or to continue his mission of locating and observing Aberrus. As the hunt for Fyrakk unfolded, things went awry as the Incarnate was revealed to have consumed shadowflame, the very poison that corrupted Neltharion and bested the pair before leaving a blaze of destruction in his wake. Seeing the destruction brought, Wrathion returned to Loamm only to discover the town sent blaze and subsequently demanded to know what happened from his brothers. The black dragons then moved as one to the Seat of the Aspects to inform Alexstrasza and the others of what had transpired. Upon learning that shadowflame resided within Zaralek, Alexstrasza initially barred the black dragonflight from returning, unwillingly to risk losing them, before Ebyssian convinced her that they had the strength to resist what lies below.[114]

Sometime later, Wrathion and his brothers returned to the Zaralek Caverns where they worked with a group of soldiers stationed by Neltharion at the Obsidian Rest, who remained loyal to the black dragonflight. Upon their arrival, Wrathion expressed that they were once again in a very unusual environment and believed that everything would change when they uncover the secrets of Neltharion's legacy. When adventurers questioned him about Aberrus, Wrathion called it a mysterious and foreboding place, that was hidden away from the rest of the world for a good reason. He further revealed that the very walls of the Laboratory seem to whisper with the echoes of dark magic and forbidden knowledge and that it was a place of danger and fascination, one they must explore if they hoped to confront their father's legacy head-on. When questioned about Sabellian, he admitted that the "heir apparent" had healed from his wounds but was sadly still convinced that the leadership of the black dragonflight was still his right. He further admitted to seeing Sabellian as the personification of the old days, a remnant of the past, and that was why he couldn't let him have leadership, and that he must take the flight forward, away from the old ways.[115]

Wrathion later joined the rest of the black dragonflight in fighting against the djaradin within the Battlefield Ruins, with him declaring it was the day they reminded their enemies that these lands were under their protection. In the aftermath of the battle, they discovered that a group of djaradin had been killed by a group of unknown dragonkin force that still carried Neltharion's banner, and learned of the existence of the slitherdrakes. Wrathion personally found the slitherdrakes to be extraordinary creatures.[116][117] In contrast, Sabellian viewed them as Neltharion's failed experiments that could be made to serve the flight, as fodder for the battlefield. When Wrathion objected to his notion and questioned if he was just fodder to him as well, Sabellian confirmed that was precisely what he was, angering Wrathion who left in a huff.[118][119]

Wrathion was later approached by Ebyssian, who successfully recruited him and his Blacktalons for the assault on Aberrus.[120] He was not surprised to find Sabellian present, when he arrived to aid Ebyssian and Emberthal. The black dragonflight united as one as they clashed against Scalecommander Sarkareth's forces within the Brimstone Garrison. During the fighting, Wrathion directed adventurers with securing weapons of historic value to the flight.[121] After Emberthal and Ebyssian forced Sarkareth to flee into Aberrus, Wrathion and Sabellian chased him, determined to not him gain control of the lab.[122] As they ventured into the lab, they were confronted by an echo of Neltharion, who tested each of them to see if they were his true heirs as they fought to claim Aberrus. In the end, both brothers failed as they balked at Neltharion's cruelty, though it was revealed that the echo was, in reality, a n'raqi.

After the death of Scalecommander Sarkareth, the events of Aberrus shook Sabellian as he confesses that in following Neltharion and aspiring to one day lead the black dragonflight as he did, he became unable, or perhaps unwilling, to acknowledge the malignancy of his father and commander's vision. He provides comfort to Wrathion of how the Black Prince only knew Neltharion as Deathwing, haunting his dreams and reveling in the certainty that he would become him. Both Sabellian and Wrathion then decided that the Aspectship of the black dragonflight should fall onto Ebyssian, one he humbly accepts.

Wrathion then joined the others in returning to the Seat of the Aspects as Ebyssian informed Alexstrasza of what had transpired and took his place as Ebyssian's diplomat.[123]

Chamber of Heart[]

Objective of[]


Wrathion wields unusually powerful abilities for a black whelp. He has displayed power over fire, magma, and magic on par with a full-grown black dragon. During N [90] Celestial Blessings, he claims that he wields the power of the titans, and was probably referring to the powers of Keeper Ra that he stole from Lei Shen by devouring his heart. Wrathion also knows how to wield weapons such as the Stormspear unempowered icon [Lightning Lance] he used against the player.

  • Ability warlock fireandbrimstone Blindside — Standing behind Wrathion increases your damage dealt to him by 250%. Aura on Wrathion for the duration of the encounter.
  • Inv misc volatileearth Crumbling Arc — Wrathion jumps in front of you and does a semicircle AoE attack. It is an uninterruptable 3 second cast that you can dodge by moving out of the dust clouds. It hits for approximately 200k damage. Be advised that this ability is currently buggy, and you may get hit even if you are outside the dust clouds.
  • Inv elemental primal fire Reign of Fire — Fireballs rain down from the ceiling, doing damage if they hit you. You can easily dodge this by avoiding the black shadows the fireballs cast when they appear.
  • Ability deathwing bloodcorruption earth Blood of the Deathborn Interruptible — 2 second cast creates a void zone that deals about 50k damage/second. This spell can be interrupted.
  • Inv misc head dragon black Neltharion's Tears Important — About every minute or so, Wrathion summons or resurrects 5 adds. They have 500k health and melee for approximately 35k damage.
  • Spell fire incinerate Inferno Important Deadly — About 2 minutes in, Wrathion will spawn many images of himself, all channeling Inferno. A single attack (including AoE) will kill any images it hits. Hitting the real Wrathion will stop the spell and despawn all the images. If Inferno goes off, it will deal damage depending on how many images remain. It will kill you if you killed too few images. This repeats 3 times in sequence.


  • "They wanted to hold me, to keep watch over me – a prisoner in all but name. But I will NOT be held accountable for the sins of my father. My destiny will be my own." [124]

<The Black Prince looks you up and down.>

It is very good to meet you, <class>. You are one of the vanguard, it would seem - an explorer in a strange new land. And how have you been finding the mysterious continent of Pandaria?

You have the look of someone who gets things done. I want you to return to me once you've gotten the lay of the land.

I will be right here.

Level 90[]

Welcome, <class>! My contacts throughout Pandaria tell me that you have been quite busy here. I admire mortals with your... 'initiative.'

History finds us at a turning point. If you are prepared to meet destiny with me head on, I will ensure that you are richly rewarded for your efforts.

Gossip Who are you?

I have chosen the name "Wrathion." To my knowledge, I am the last of the black dragons.

My father was Deathwing, the Worldbreaker, the Aspect of Death, the Destroyer... But I hope you will not hold that against me.

I have no love for my father, whose corruption destroyed my race, or for the red dragonflight, who stole away and experimented on my egg to create me.

Let's just say, I am... unaffiliated. And I am always on the lookout for like-minded heroes.

Black Empire Campaign

Guard your mind. N'Zoth's influence is insidious in its subtlety.

Buy I would like to exchange my Coalescing Visions and Corrupted Mementos.


The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Gossip Wrathion I would like you to create a Vessel of Horrific Visions. (200 Coalescing Visions)

Not enough

You do not have enough Coalescing Visions for me to create a new vessel.

Gossip Do you know anything about the Horrific Vision essences?

Yes I have the Luminous Azerite Geode, Resplendent Warden's Badge, and the Ward of Unimaginable Brilliance and am keeping them safe. Have you found all of the previous ranks of the essence? If you have and you can prove yourself capable of clearing all the threats in both the Horrific Visions of Stormwind and Orgrimmar with the strain of 5 Faceless Masks I feel I could then entrust the essences to you.

Conversation with Ebyssian
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: Wrathion. How did you know that I had begun to hear N'Zoth's whispers?
Wrathion says: One of my agents was watching over you. I knew that if you left the protection of Highmountain, you would become... vulnerable.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn says: I did not realize you had such personal concern for my well-being.
Wrathion says: Of course. You are my brother. The only one I have.

Gossip <What lies next for you, Wrathion?>

Wrathion says: The Old Gods have been vanquished, yet they were only one threat to Azeroth. Many others loom on the horizon and lurk in the shadows.
Wrathion says: Know that from this day forth, the black dragonflight will honor its ancient charge and stand in defense of our world... along with its champions.


Dragonflight This section concerns content related to Dragonflight.


Old Weyrn Grounds, Forbidden Reach

Your leader does not understand the gravity of this situation.

My companion and I were summoned here by an ancient warning from... someone who was known to have world-ending aspirations.

We did not expect to find a race as yet unknown in living memory, with talents granted from all five flights.

This is concerning.

During N IconSmall Dracthyr MaleIconSmall Dracthyr Female Evoker [58-60] Final Orders

My friend, we are in a precarious position. Your General will call a full retreat if she has not yet.

When we do depart from here, I have implored Azurathel to bring at least his weyrn to Stormwind. There the Alliance can lend aid in exchange for aid. They are one of the largest gatherings of mortals on Azeroth, and I am... familiar... with many of their leaders.

Trust me when I say they could use you as much as you could use them.

Scalecracker Keep

These giants might be the dragons' ancient enemies... but they don't stand a chance against the likes of me.

Obsidian Bulwark

Though my forces may seem small compared to the djaradin, they are well trained, and prepared to die for me if necessary.

Burning Ascent

We're nearly there, <name>. Victory is within our grasp.

At the lower courtyard of the Obsidian Citadel

We've breached the gates! Quickly now, I'll need your help to secure this courtyard.

At the door to the Obsidian Citadel

The Oathstone is within reach. destiny is at hand.

Obsidian Throne
<Name>. For many years, we have worked together, and achieved what many thought impossible. We fought to protect this world and safeguard its future.
We have overcome the mightiest of foes, time and again. You have been an invaluable ally... and friend.
I need your allegiance now more than ever. In return, I promise you will share in the reward.
Seat of the Aspects

Take a look at this. It's a tome found amongst the rubble and ruin of what used to be the Obsidian Citadel's library. Its script is one I have very little experience with, but the exercise of translating it has kept me most amused while awaiting everyone's arrival.

There was another one under the nearby debris, a sister tome, as it were. I brought it with me here, but I do not believe I have ample time to decipher the texts of both.

<Wrathion pops an eyebrow at you.>

Mind taking a crack at it yourself? I have always found you determined when it comes to little mysteries.

Gossip <Accept the book from Wrathion.>

After the former gossip

No need to dwell too much on the tome, <name>. Ancient history seldom calls for immediate action.

Well... Unless it escapes from a vault after thousands of years and unleashes its havoc-wreaking siblings on the world.

Central Encampment, Emerald Dream

It is nice to see you, <name>.


While Wrathion refers to Deathwing as his father, this claim is dubious, since Sinestra was previously established as the only dragon to survive mating with him after he succumbed to corruption.[125] When asked about Wrathion's lineage, Dave Kosak confirmed the theory that Deathwing isn't Wrathion's literal father, and tweeted the following:

"We don't know who Wrathion's literal father is. Certainly he's in Deathwing's lineage. He considers DW to be his father, FWIW."[1]
"Wrathion likely took the "Prince" title himself, claiming to be the "true" heir of Deathwing."[6]

While Wrathion's mother is clearly Nyxondra, the identity of his father is unclear. Neltharion/Deathwing is the leader of the black dragonflight and as such is likely seen as the father of the entire flight (which could be why he refers to Deathwing's actions and why the legendary daggers are named Fangs of the Father). As there is no real shortage of other named (and unnamed) male black dragons, Wrathion's actual father could have been any of them.

The Ultimate Visual Guide lists Wrathion as Deathwing's son and as Onyxia's and Nefarian's half-sibling.

Kosak later stated that Nyxondra was Onyxia's sister and tweeted out the following:

"It's kinda kooky, but Wrathion's mother Nyxondra was Onyxia's sister... so... Yeah black dragons are freaky."[2]
"You guys are right, Deathwing isn't technically Wrathion's direct biological father."[126]

This would mean that Deathwing is Wrathion's grandfather, not his father. This would also make Onyxia and Nefarian his aunt and uncle, respectively. This also corresponds with Wrathion's own words when he called Onyxia his auntie.[127]

Oddly enough, an official page stated that Wrathion is a child of Deathwing,[128] and War Crimes mentions Wrathion being sired by Deathwing.[129] However, Wrathion was not technically sired by another black dragon, his egg was artificially created by the Eye of the Watchers which magically combined the purified matter of one of Nyxondra's eggs with another wild black dragon egg of unknown parentage and a black whelp corpse.[130] Annual 2015 also lists Deathwing as Wrathion's father.

In Ultimate Visual Guide, Updated and Expanded, all mentions of Wrathion being related to Deathwing and his children are removed. In Wrathion's entry, Nyxondra is listed as his only known relative.[131]

Due to these contradictions, Wrathion's heritage was subject to much debate, with different sources giving different ideas as to how Wrathion fits into Deathwing's family tree.

In Battle for Azeroth, there are still references of calling Deathwing his father. In Dragonflight Sabellian calls Wrathion his little brother, rather than his nephew, which he should be if Deathwing is his grandfather, though later questions Wrathion's 'lineage' at the Obsidian Citadel.

Dave Kosak on Wrathion[]

During an interview with WoW Insider in 2012 Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak talked about Wrathion:

When we had written that questline in the Badlands there, we knew that this would be a cool story thread to pick up some day. But if you really think about how long it would take a dragon to mature and start developing his own thoughts, it'd be a long time. Like decades. And we didn't really have time for that! So I said well, OK -- if we ask people to buy into this one thing, that because of these experiments he can have some self-awareness early on, wow - what an interesting character that is!
All of a sudden he's so compelling. Because let's see, his father was crazy and tried to destroy the world, his mother was basically raped by the red dragonflight, then his egg was experimented on to sever his ties with his own family - so how do you view the world at that point? Well, you don't really view the world as a friendly place. You're probably eager to take control of your own destiny, which he does, even before he hatches. And then you kind of have this thing to atone for - your father tried to destroy the world. Your father went crazy. Are you crazy? How do you not be crazy, how do you make up for what your father did. Suddenly he's such a cool character! I really want to explore that character. We kind of went nuts with it. So we kind of asked people -- well if you can already buy in to the idea that he hatched from his egg and already started hatching schemes, then there's a whole cool story that can come from that. And we really rolled with it.
That was kind of the genesis of that character. His value to the franchise is he really can kind of stand above Alliance and Horde, and really try and be a good guy, but without all the moral reservations that most good guys have. He really does have the best interests of Azeroth in mind, but his interests may not necessarily line up with our interests. His plan may not be the way that we would think of planning it. That kind of gray area between hero and villain is so cool for us, very cool to explore. And you're never sure whether you should trust him or not. It helps that we got a wonderful voice actor who really gets that across. He gets that kind of, that air of arrogance and also a little bit of smarminess. You know, like you like him, but don't trust him at the same time. Wonderful, wonderful characterization.[132]

In Hearthstone[]

Hearthstone This section contains information exclusive to Hearthstone and is considered non-canon.
Wrathion HS

Wrathion in Hearthstone.

Wrathion appears as a legendary card in the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion for Hearthstone. Despite being a black dragon, his Hearthstone card lacks the Dragon minion type due to him using his human guise, a fact that is referenced by his flavor text:"Wrathion, son of Deathwing, is a dragon. Why isn't he tagged as a dragon, you ask? WHAT, ARE YOU TRYING TO BLOW HIS COVER??"

Notes and trivia[]

  • Wrathion was two years old in Mists of Pandaria,[50] in Year 30.[133] This makes him five to six years old in Battle for Azeroth, in Years 33-34,[133] and twelve years old in Dragonflight, in Year 40.[133]
  • Wrathion is one of the only dragons in the game the players have seen in all three forms of a dragon's life. Having been introduced as a whelp, Wrathion was a drake by the time of Ny'alotha. And while a phantasm, Wrathion, the Black Emperor, shows a potential version of Wrathion as a dragon.
    • He shares this distinction with Tarecgosa, though canonic depictions of her only appear through Stave 2h tarecgosa e 01stagefinal [Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest]'s drake form, and her normal dragon form. Unlike Wrathion, where all three forms are encountered in a story perspective, Inv misc petdragonwhelptarecgosa [Lil' Tarecgosa] is only a pet.
  • Wrathion has had several unique models. His original incarnation was as a young adult human male and featured dragonscale attire topped by a turban. His second appearance expanded upon this, abandoning the turban for long flowing hair. As a dragon, Wrathion was not given a unique model (his whelp model was the standard one) until he was given his drake form. A depiction of him as a corrupted dragon was also given for the Ny'alotha raid.
    • Notably, his second human form depiction uses the blood elf male animations instead of the human male ones as his previous incarnation did.
  • By the time of the trial of Garrosh Hellscream, Wrathion was about the size of a large dog in his dragon form.[134]
  • Wrathion and Deathwing briefly appear in N [30-35] Gods and Monsters, a story told by Lorewalker Cho.
  • In some ways, the Burning Legion's massive third invasion was ultimately Wrathion's fault. The invasion only occurred thanks to the alternate Gul'dan discovering and being sent to Azeroth, neither of which would have happened had Wrathion left Garrosh in prison. While the Legion would have returned regardless, Wrathion's manipulations cost Azeroth numerous lives against the Iron Horde, Primals, Breakers, and other enemies; all lives who could've been better spent fighting the Legion. Anduin echoes this view in Battle for Azeroth.
  • His generic name during N [70] Dragon Keeping is Blacktalon Warrior.
  • Wrathion is voiced by Aaron Phillips.[135]
  • A number of fans pair him with Anduin Wrynn. In response, Christie Golden tweeted "their relationship is only good friends."[136][137][138]
  • In the Legion alpha, Wrathion was in Highmountain disguised as Spiritwalker Ebonhorn, and at the end of his questline he gathered time-lost black dragon eggs to raise new, uncorrupted black dragons. In later builds he was replaced as Ebonhorn by Ebyssian and the questline was rewritten, mainly because it made little sense for Wrathion to have become a trusted sage of the Highmountain tauren in such a short amount of time.[139] Wrathion was based at the Obsidian Overlook, along with several characters from the Tavern in the Mists.
  • During the Battle for Azeroth demo at BlizzCon 2017, Wrathion could be found at the Stormwind Embassy.[140] By the time the patch 7.3.5 PTR started, adding the embassy to the city, he had been removed.
  • His bodyguards, Left and Right, might be inspired by the twin guardsmen of Olenna Tyrell from the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, who refers to her protectors as "Left" and "Right" since she cannot tell them apart. In the Witcher universe, the dragon Villentretenmerth also had the habit of being protected by two female human bodyguards that he referred to as "his weapons".
  • According to Associate Game Director Jeremy Feasel, Wrathion's scimitar is named Succession.[141]
