World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is the next expansion for the popular MMO, and the new cinema gives us a glimpse of where we’re headed and who we’re dealing with. The film is narrated by Alexstrasza of the Red Dragon, and it begins 10,000 years ago. We know that the Dragon Aspects sealed off the Dragon Islands after the global disaster of Sundering, and said they would return when the time is right and the land is healing.
But who are the Dragon Aspects, and what do they have to do with the humble little rock man who reactivates the tower and calls the dragons home? We have the answers you need.
There are five main Dragonflights, each of them led by an Aspect. Alexstrasza, who narrates the trailer, is the Aspect of the Red Dragonflight and the binder of life, and their flames have healing properties. Meanwhile, there’s the mystery-leaning Blue Dragonflight, the dreamy Green Dragonflight with links to the Emerald Dream, the time-manipulating Bronze Dragonflight, and the fan-favorite Wrathion-led Black Dragonflight.
Aspects of the Dragon were originally empowered by the Titans, the guardians of the Order, who helped shape and protect the world of Azeroth, after a great battle against Dragonkind’s ancestor, Galakrond. The Aspects will remain the stewards of Azeroth for the next 10,000 years – mainly, because players have had to battle Aspects Malygos and Deathwing as raid bosses in The Rage of the Lich King and Cataclysm extension. At the end of CataclysmThe four Dragonflight Aspects gave up their great powers to stop their crazed brother Deathwing.
The Titanic Watchers remained on Dragon Island to watch over the beacon tower, and after several expansions of irreparable chaos and destruction, it seemed the world was finally healing and the The dragon is returning home.
Dragon Island has been mentioned in legends for a while; They are an ancient place filled with mysterious powers. Wrathion, leader of the Black Dragon and son of Wrathion, have been searching the Islands for several years now.
As it turned out, one of the reasons the Aspects were so eager to return home was that they had been in dire straits since relinquishing their power. Dragons can’t spawn and they’ve taken multiple hits in the last few expansions, like the corruption of the Green Dragonflight Aspect Ysera, the death of a swarm of red dragons at the hands of the Death Knights, and the nearly extinct Black Dragon. .
One of the main goals of Dragonflight will help the Dragon Aspects regain their power to defend four new regions on the Dragon Isles: Waking Shores, Ohn’ahran Plains, Azure Span, and Thaldraszus. We’ll learn more about the plot as Blizzard adds final story content to the current expansion, Shadowlands. At this time, there is no release date for Dragonflight.
