Dragonflight Pre-Patch Cutscene Introduces an Old Friend & a New Foe
One of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight’s first cutscenes introduces the major antagonist of the expansion, as well as the return of a fan favorite.
The first cutscenes from World of Warcraft: Dragonflight have arrived, introducing some old friends & new threats. The new story cutscenes were added to World of Warcraft as a part of phase two of the Dragonflight pre-patch.
Titled “A Tempest Unleashed,” the new story cutscene acts as the introduction to the Tempest Unleashed pre-patch event for Dragonflight. After taking a couple expansions off, Khadgar, beloved archmage & World of Warcraft fan favorite, has made his return to help the Aspects face Raszageth the Storm-Eater, major antagonist & final boss of the first Dragonflight raid.
Kalecgos, young Aspect of the blue dragonflight, comes to Khadgar to seek his aid after Raszageth breaks free of her prison. Players then witness a conversation between Alexstrasza & the other World of Warcraft dragon Aspects as they discuss the ferocious Storm-Eater. Youngest of the Primal Incarnates, Raszageth represents a significant threat to the Aspects, especially considering the diminished state of their powers & their scattered flights. After hearing Raszageth’s threat to “cleanse the world of the Titans’ stain,” Khadgar agrees to aid his old friend in battling Raszageth & her Primalists.
During the cutscene, Alexstrasza explains the history of the Aspects & the Primal Incarnates: they were once as close as clutchmates, but disagreements over the dragons’ partnership with the Titans led to a bloody war. The cutscene shows the fear & trepidation Alexstrasza & Nozdormu sense in facing the ancient threat, especially in regard to Iridikron the Stonescaled. Presumably the eldest & most powerful of the Primal Incarnates, his name was enough to cause Alexstrasza to visibly wince. Players can expect Iridikron to be a major threat later in Dragonflight.
A second cutscene plays at the end of the Forbidden Reach–the dracthyr starting zone in Dragonflight–& shows Raszageth being freed from her prison & defeating Wrathion. As this is only available to dracthyr characters, “A Tempest Unleashed” acts as a summary of the cutscene for everyone else.
Players are already excited to see where these new Dragonflight cutscenes lead. From the Dragonflight launch cinematic & this cutscene alone, many players already think Raszageth is a more terrifying & compelling villain than the Jailer was in Shadowl&s. Considering she is the weakest of the bunch, players are also excited to learn more about the other Primal Incarnates. Players are already speculating a connection between Iridikron & Galakrond considering the similarities in name & their shared legendary “hunger.” Many are also excited Khadgar is back, & missed him dearly since his last major role in Legion. In just a couple of weeks, players can journey to the Dragon Isles with their old friend, unlock the secrets of the Dragon Isles, & face Raszageth & the Primalists.
World of Warcraft is available now for PC. Dragonflight launches on November 28.
