    1. Players battle against Sylvanas atop Torghast while the Jailer remains elusive.

    2. Upon reaching 80% health, Sylvanas chains all players with Domination Chains, then casts Rive, destroying the tower itself.

    3. Sylvanas enters Banshee Form, taking to the skies to waylay players' persuit of the Jailer as he ascends. Thrall and Jaina lend their aid by casting Call Earth and Channel Ice, respectively, but must be kept free from interruptions while doing so.

    4. Sylvanas follows the players' traversal, greeting them for the final showdown between Death and inevitability in the Jailer's master plan.

    I mean all of this sounds pretty final. Jailer ascends (to Oribos?) and after we defeat Sylvanas, he's our next target.

    It does, and it acually sounds really epic. I hope they don't mess this one up.

    5. Upon crashing back down to the Maw, Sylvannis turns around only to get run through by Arthas, who's just been chilling in the maw since Uther dropped him there


    at least I can hope

    Just a reminder - above Torghast there is a way to Azeroth.

    So it might not be Oribos at all, but Icecrown Citadel/Azeroth.

    I mean that's his final goal eventually. But I thought he must go to Oribos first. If he can ascend from Torghast to Azeroth, then he might skip Oribos.

    theres also alot missing for the sylvanas fight so probably wise to wait for the full journal before judging whats actually happening,
    stage two starts at 80%, in which she doesnt lose health;
    so stage 3 would be 80-0% and doesnt seem to have that many interesting mechanics for now,
    it also mentions a "chamber" in p3 even tho in p1 she destroys the top of the tower and we fly/traverse on thralls/jainas ice while phase 2 happens and after that in p3 we seemingly traverse to the inbetween of death and inevitability of the jailers plan, so the inbetween has a chamber? theres just a lot of details missing at the moment
    or they just keep a fourth phase for mythic only

    Wait, so, basically, regarding Sylvanas:

    We fight her on Torghast, and the Jailer watches from above, likely using the Sigils to get to the Arbiter.

    The intermission then brings us to a platform at the In-between, where we see her destroy Torghast and throw chunks of it at us, Thanos style.

    Then, Phase 2 has the Jailer slowly travel across the In-between to Oribos, while we battle Sylvanas there.

    And Phase 3 will be the Jailer reaching Oribos, and him trying to claim the Arbiter's sigil. We defeat Sylvanas there, but it's too late. Zovaal has defeated the Arbiter and has now taken rule over Death itself. The Jailer then starts converging Reality and the Shadowlands, leading to a massive Skybox change with Reality being present in all the Shadowlands zones, specifically Oribos.

    Then, 9.2 will be about Zovaal, the now ruler of Death, trying to claim Reality and Life itself for...well...himself.

    I'm loving how all of this sounds, but I can't help but notice a lack of any mention of Anduin here. Does that mean we're able to help him before the raid starts canonically, I wonder?

    As long as Sylvanas is only defeated and doesn't die, I'm content. If she dies, myself along with at least half the player base will quit. She's too good of a character to off, she can be shifted to the side like Illidan for a later redemptive path, that's fine. But she cannot die, I refuse to believe it. I really hope Blizzard understands this and does a middle ground approach to please both those who want to see justice for her crimes but also those like me who don't want her to die, I'd much rather be interested in a redemptive path, greater than we all could see type plot point, than just, yeah she bad she dead. She deserves far better than that, she's the most interesting character int he entire damn game. DON'T KILL HER BLIZZARD. Or you pretty much kill WOW

    This means he's most likely (99,9% chance) a boss in the final raid of Shadowlands where we battle the Jailer.

    At this point, I don't care what happens. She will never have an end befitting to her actual pre-Danuser character.

    XD wtf. Talk about being overdramatic.

    If you're playing WoW for Sylvanas only, I think you have a bigger problem.
