Sindragosa, formerly the prime-consort of Malygos, is a mighty frost wyrm who was raised by the Lich King himself at Sindragosa's Fall in Icecrown.[3] She is the very same frost wyrm that the Lich King raised in the Wrath of the Lich King cinematic, as the same scene is played out after completing the quest N [80] Where Dragons Fell.

Background

Death

Long before the Great Sundering, the five dragonflightsred, blue, bronze, green, and black — were charged with watching over the budding world of Azeroth. Sindragosa was the beloved consort of the blue dragon Malygos, also called the Spell Weaver, guardian of all arcane magic. With the help of goblin servants, Neltharion created a powerful artifact called the Dragon Soul. He convinced his dragon brethren to empower the disk, claiming it would thwart the impending invasion of the demonic Burning Legion.

However, Neltharion betrayed his dragon allies during the Legion's assault, provoking an apocalyptic battle in the skies over the Well of Eternity. Malygos and Sindragosa joined the blue dragons in surrounding the Earth Warder. They charged the black dragon...but Neltharion used the might of the Dragon Soul to strike out, decimating nearly all of the blue dragonflight. The blast hurled Sindragosa far across the land, deep into the frozen north.

Blinded and near death, Sindragosa sought desperately to reach the Dragonblight — the place where dragons instinctively travel to die. No longer able to fly, Sindragosa plummeted to the cold earth in the region of Icecrown. The blue dragon gathered what remained of her energy and called out to Malygos for aid. Her only answer was the howling arctic wind as she struggled on, but the distance was far too great; agonizingly she realized that her spirit would not find rest within the Dragonblight. Her life continued to fade away as her sanity deteriorated.

In the midst of her delirium, Sindragosa's final thoughts turned to bitterness and hatred: hatred against the Legion, hatred against Neltharion, hatred even against Malygos. But most of all, hatred against the world of mortals.

And in her dying moments... Sindragosa vowed revenge.[4]

Wrath of the Lich King

WotLK This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

Sindragosa in Icecrown Citadel.

Sindragosa is briefly seen in the Pit of Saron, the second 5-man Icecrown instance, after the defeat of Scourgelord Tyrannus. While the leader of the army of liberated slaves (Martin Victus for Alliance, Gorkun Ironskull for Horde) commends the players for their bravery and their efforts to free them, Sindragosa flies up from the pit below and unleashes her fury, killing the leader and his army. The players are pulled back to the entrance tunnel by Jaina Proudmoore or Sylvanas Windrunner, saving them from a grisly death.

Sindragosa appears as a boss encounter in the Frostwing Halls inside Icecrown Citadel. She was one of the first two bosses to be announced, the other of course being the Lich King himself.[5] She is slain by adventurers led by Tirion Fordring and Darion Mograine who seek the death of Arthas Menethil, The Lich King.

Among the former weekly raid quests of Icecrown Citadel is Respite for a Tormented Soul, which involved slaying the undead skeleton of Sindragosa and extracting her soul into a small crystal, adventurers who completed this task turned in the crystal to Kalec in Wyrmrest Temple, his final words being "Rest now, Sindragosa. You are home.... " meaning she was freed of her undead chains and finally able to ascend into afterlife.

Despite her soul being delivered to Kalec, Sindragosa is bound to the Blades of the Fallen Prince of the new Deathlord of the Ebon Blade, sometimes being awoken and assisting them against their enemies.[6]

Trivia

  • Her name is likely a portmanteau of the words "sin" and "dragon", along with the traditional female blue dragon suffix "-gosa". Thus, Sindragosa.
  • Sindragosa was also introduced in the new login screen when Patch 3.0.2 was released, in which many players came to love and/or hate the ferocious roar.
  • Unused storyboards and animatics for the Wrath of the Lich King cinematic indicate that at some point, the cinematic was to depict the battle between the dragonflights over the Well of Eternity and Sindragosa's subsequent death.[7]
  • Like Lord Marrowgar, Sindragosa's model was changed in China due to not being allowed to show bones. She instead uses a slightly modified blue dragon model.
  • Sindragosa can be summoned by Arthas in Heroes of the Storm.[8]
