Enter the Dragon Queen
85 (Requires 84)
Hello, <race>. I wish we could meet in more favorable circumstances. The world hangs by a thread, and all that the Titans have wrought may be in jeopardy.
It saddens me greatly, but my judgment is final. Deathwing - the horrific creature that was once the Earth Warder and once my friend - must be destroyed.
I have prepared a site atop the Highlands, to the west of the Vermillion Redoubt, where I can bring about his end. Seek out the Circle of Life and speak with Lirastrasza within. I will join you there.
Hello again, <race>. I hear you were instrumental in our push toward Grim Batol - thank you!
Alexstrasza has sanctified this ground in the hopes of luring Deathwing here. She'll perform a ceremony to lure him out... and then destroy him within this sacred circle.
Let's hope her plan works.
To the north-northwest. Easier to circle around Grim Batol than to fly over it.
Lira's new gossip text:
- I understand that Alexstrasza has pronounced judgement on Deathwing. Perhaps this whole ordeal will end, right here?
- Alexstrasza flies in from the west and lands in front of the player. Calen follows shortly behind. They roar and transform into their humanoid forms.
- Alexstrasza says: Mortal, I want you to bear witness to this, but for your own safety stay back. Calen, you too.
- Calen says: I will not leave your side.
- Alexstrasza says: Your life isn't yours to throw away, Calen. Should I fail, the fate of this world may rest on your shoulders.
- Calen says: Yes, mother.
- The player and Calen walk away as Alexstrasza casts a flower-growing spell in the center of the ring to attract Deathwing, who dutifully appears from the south. The area behind Deathwing explodes and remains on fire.
- Deathwing says: Lifebinder! Do you presume that I am at your beck and call? I have a world to unmake.
- Alexstrasza says: It pains me, Neltharion - but I must end you, as I have ended Malygos.
- Deathwing says: "End" me? Lifebinder, you think life is yours to take away?
- Deathwing says: Life is weak, mortal, fleeting ... fragile.
- Deathwing says: Death is final. Death is eternal. Death is ... my realm.
- Deathwing says: Look upon me and you see death incarnate, the unmaker of worlds.
- Alexstrasza says: I see the hollow metal shell of a once great ally, and the precious gift of the Titans wasted.
- Deathwing says: Then witness my new gifts, bestowed by this world's true masters.
- Deathwing breathes fire on Alexstrasza and flies away. Alexstrasza regains her dragon form and follows behind him.
Speak to Calen to continue.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
