Wyrmrest Temple

The Wyrmrest Accord was an alliance of four dragonflights — the red, bronze, green, and black flights — created to combat the blue dragonflight's crusade against magic users. The red dragonflight was the most active of the four, with a large number of red dragons guarding Wyrmrest Temple itself.

Following the defeat of Deathwing, the former Aspects decided to officially dissolve the Accord, however, Kalecgos opposed this decision and manages to convince them to hold the Accord and continue to protect Azeroth together.

History

The Nexus War

The Wyrmrest Accord was founded by Alexstrasza following Malygos's declaration of war upon all mortal spellcasters. She gathered together representatives from the other three dragonflights, both to oppose the blue dragonflight and to defend the Dragonblight against the undead Scourge. At the top of Wyrmrest Temple was placed a massive sphere, the Orb of Unity, as a symbol of the dragonflights' alliance. Eventually, the blue dragon Kalecgos journeyed to Wyrmrest Temple as an unofficial ambassador to the blue dragonflight, openly declaring his opposition to the Nexus War.[2]

The Accord is Broken

With the defeat of both Malygos and the Lich King, the Wyrmrest Accord's activities lessened. Alexstrasza began reaching out to the remaining members of the blue dragonflight in a show of good faith, and the representatives of the black dragonflight mysteriously disappeared. After the Cataclysm, the Wyrmrest Accord began meeting with certain blue dragons, including Malygos's son, Arygos, to urge them to select a new Aspect in order to help restore the shattered world. However, Arygos was still angry about the death of his father, wondering aloud if Alexstrasza would simply kill him, too, if it became convenient.

During one such meeting, Wyrmrest Temple came under attack by the twilight dragonflight. The twilight dragons lured the defenders away from the temple, allowing their agents to slip into the sanctums within the Chamber of the Aspects and corrupt all of the eggs within. Their deception was discovered by Alexstrasza's consort, Korialstrasz, who sacrificed himself to destroy the sanctums and all the eggs contained within, heavily damaging Wyrmrest Temple in the process. Alexstrasza was initially unaware of the corruption of the eggs, and as a result, she was consumed with grief over their loss and distraught over the possibility that her love might have betrayed them to the twilight dragonflight. In her grief, Alexstrasza shattered the Orb of Unity, effectively ending the Wyrmrest Accord.[3]

Even though the Aspects worked together once more on retaking the Wyrmrest Temple and then finally on defeating Deathwing,[4] they didn't want to continue with the Accord even though Kalecgos tried to show the importance of this draconic alliance. The former Aspects decided to officially dissolve the Accord during their next meeting the next month. Kalec however summoned the three sooner and used an artifact from Tyr to remind them the time when they had been merely proto-dragons and as they had fought against Galakrond together. An attempt strongly criticized by the former Aspects but who gave them the will to continue to protect Azeroth by fighting together, which avoided the official dissolution of the Accord.[5]
