    Third episode - Ardenweald:

    I would love to see animated short featuring Tyrande and Bolvar, but building them around covenants is logical choice, can't say I'm surprised. I'm relieved we are spared from another Sylvanas cinematic/animated short.

    I like these shorts but I really don't care for any of the covenants or the characters shown here

    I'll watch them anyway

    Based on the snippets in the video, I assume we'll get more info on the following:

    • Uther's arrival in Bastion and subsequent fall to the Forsworn, as well as the reason for Devos becoming the Paragon of Doubt.
    • The coup against the Primus in Maldraxxus, including the betrayal of the House of Rituals and the House of Constructs.
    • The major effect of the Drought in Ardenweald and the arrival of the Drust.
    • Sire Denathrius' scheming coming to light as he makes his final play to aid the Jailer.

    Should be interesting.

    I wouldn't go so far, the primus has been missing for quite some time, though it seems very likely this is the end of the house of eyes.[*]The major effect of the Drought in Ardenweald and the arrival of the Drust.

    I wonder who that orc is, he has the same voice actor as garrosh.

    It's possible it is Garrosh. But to be fair, if it's an orc, most of them have growly voices

    It might be Garrosh. He is not that different from Kaelthas, why would he be in the Maw? (Or any other Covenants)

    Im almost 100% sure thats Garrosh, the clothing is similar to what he always wore (just pants and a big-ass belt)+the voice sounds a lot like him
    man, hopefully blizz doesnt just kill him again in the short to show how evil things are there

    also uther talking about punishing arthas at the beginning, and the moment of his death shown? and people still try to claim arthas wont play a role this xpac? lawl

    anyhow, im happy we dont get yet another sylvanas fanboy video

    The crooked shitposter with no eyes is watching from the endless thread.

    From the space that is everywhere and nowhere, the crooked shitposter feasts on memes.

    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Denathrius deal does not seem accurate. Its quest content. Some tortures, garrosh, kael and maybe some others. And maybe garrosh dont redeem and go to the maw

    Denathrius has been hoarding anima to give to the Jailer for ages (which he does in the Revendreth leveling content), and the snippets in the above video seem to cover him torturing the anima from his charges as opposed to reforming them like he's supposed to, as well as getting rid of political liabilities in the Ember Ward.

    Garrosh is back. Let's see how this unfolds.

    Considering he does not appear at all in Revendreth and the big guy who appears later is supposed to be Arthas, I doubt he will appear beyond that tease.

    He could appear in a later patch in another zone which is a different covenant. I doubt that we will only visit 4 and the maw only during this expansion.

    If Revendreth couldn't redeem Garrosh then he likely was sent to the Maw. I doubt we'll see him in any major role.

    Completely agree. I also suspect this is the one we'll be starting with this week.

    We might have some of this, but the way it looked to me was that much of the focus would be on Draka. This would follow how the past cinematics of this style have worked IMO, as they have largely been more character-based.

    This seems likely. The focal point may be on the Winter Queen here, but we are likely to see how the Drust have affected Ardenweald at least somewhat.

    This one would surprise me, if for no other reason than I suspect they'll want to tell this story more in game. I do suspect Denathrius will be the focal point, but I wonder if it might go more into his story from an earlier perspective and show how things have changed for both Revendreth and himself. Renathal may be the focal point here as well.

    So apparently now Uther hates Arthas? Looks like writers forgot about what Uther said about Arthas after ICC.

    So for Revendreth and Ardenweald we have focus set on inhabitants of those zones while for Bastion and Maldraxxus we have one of Blizzard's interchangeable cardboard cutout human Paladins and for Maldraxxus we have goddamn Draka. Great.
