    Does the Xal'atath dagger come into play during the fight or elsewhere in the raid? I was sort of expecting it to appear in some fashion in the finale cinematic.

    I think she's the "hint" for the next expac and we won't see much of her until the prepatch.

    Well she Xal the entity I'm sure will reappear but since the dagger was on the ship in Nathanos' possession when the zone opened and Nathanos is seen later without it I guessed it would pop up here.

    That seemed very underwhelming.

    Dead? unsure if she was dying why the slow dramatic walk with im going to finish you off at last trope? Either way I as well found this underwhelming and correct me if im wrong but did they not say a plot twist was gonna happen?

    Again they are just dragging this for as long as possible to keep people engaged as long as they can for more money. And its getting really sad.

    Where are the spoilers and the twist? We already knew N'Zoth would make an appearance.

    lmao be patient. Blizzard has shown to have cinematics and story updates come out any time during patches in BFA. There's obviously more specifics to come, and they will when it makes sense. Would it make sense if N'zoth was 100% fully released right there in the background of Jaina and Lorthremar, but then we chilled and did dailies for 4 months? This is all we needed right now.

    When we killed KJ, and the portal between Argus and Azeroth was opened, did we get ARGUS THE UNMAKER spelled out for us? No.

    I think shes due for some humility.
    When it comes to playing the long con nobody is better then the Old Gods, they have nothing but time and have a history of taking things slow.

    So the endgame boss will be nzoth or Azshara fused with nzoth? hmmm

    People seem to forget there will be a 8.2.5. We are bound to see more before 8.3. Maybe another mini raid like Crucible of Storms.

    Oh and Worgen model updates, i hope

    I haven't played WoW in a bit but...

    N'Zoth is "resurrecting" Azshara and saying "All eyes shall be opened." Does it mean N'Zoth will resurrect ALL of the dead? Effectively a new Scourge? (Also consistent with the effect of N'Zoth in Hearthstone, not that anything there is canon but still)

    If so then perhaps Sylvanas will be the key to freeing the N'Zoth undead from their servitude just as she freed the Forsaken from the Lich King, which would vindicate her somewhat (in her view at least, she's trying to protect the interests of the Forsaken. If we find that the dead are truly the greatest threat to Azeroth, then her power over the dead may be what saves Azeroth)

    And it may explain the weird happenings with Bolvar, Bwonsamdi, whatever else, if N'Zoth has been claiming the "souls" of the dead.

    But like I said I haven't played WoW in a bit so some of this may already be proven untrue.

    I do feel like there has been way too much focus on death as a theme lately for this to just be a throwaway line though.

    Worgen don't need model updates, already have HD models.

    I am ready for what 8.2.5 has in store! But really, this cinematic was expected one way or another.

    Oh no, the weakest Old God is released, how will Azeroth prevail?

    agreed, very disappointed that she got defeated.
    figured she would rolfstomp us until next patch at least.
    now all thats gonna happen is we fight her again, only to defeat her again.

    I know people aren't happy with this judging from the posts... but I'm just happy Azshara didn't die off yet. Still hope to have her as an expansion villain which she deserves - not a patch villain.
