Xavius says: Your adoring husband will be joining me in the nightmare. His was a special invitation.
Xavius walks around Malfurion to stand beneath the hovering Ysera and turns back to Tyrande.
Xavius says: And our dear Ysera! Would you believe she has had a change of heart?
Xavius says: She will aid me in my conquest of Val'sharah, starting with your precious Temple of Elune.
Ysera roars and obediently flies off.
Xavius says: Such a dilemma, high priestess!
Xavius says: Kneel beside your beloved as he draws his final breath? Or watch the temple of your goddess burn!
Xavius cackles as he teleports away, taking Malfurion with him.
