WoW Patch 9.2: Developer video on the end of eternity

Watch out for spoilers!

Three new cutscenes reveal first story details

We know that we will travel to Zereth Mortis. But no one knew exactly how we would get there. In the final chapter of Korthia, the Primus told us that he must forge new Seals of the Eternals before we can follow Zovaal to the Mausoleum of the First. But even with the four seals, the gate to Zereth Mortis cannot be opened so easily. Still missing is the Judge's Seal, engraved on her heart. Zovaal retrieved this heart at the end of patch 9.1.

Portal of the Primus

The Primus finally finds the solution at the former seat of the judge in the capital of the Shadowlands. The council of high-ranking servants of Oribos has retained some of her power. With this power and the newly forged seals of the Eternals, they manage to open a portal that leads to Zereth Mortis. However, the gate to the cradle of creation is only open for a brief moment. The Primus urges our heroes to hurry.

Run for the Portal

A few seconds later, we learn why the Primus of Maldraxxus is in such a hurry. In the sky above Oribos, the Dread Lords and the Mawbound appear. The dungeon master left them in the Shadowlands to make sure we don't follow him.

Clearly, the sinister Val'kyr are doing everything they can to destroy the portal to Zereth Mortis. We barely make it through the dimensional gate before it is sealed again with dark magic. How Jaina, Bolvar and co. make it to Zereth Mortis remains a mystery for now. We will probably open a gate for them on the other side.

Deactivating the Forge of Afterlives

In the last curscene, we see Anduin putting the chains of domination on the guardian of the gate to the sanctuary of Zereth Mortis. This allows the jailer (who is not yet wearing his new armor in the video) to force the guard to open the forbidden gate to the Creators' Workshop for him.

At this point we see again how dangerous the runes of domination are. In the end, our hero is left with Jaina and Baine. We must then figure out how to reactivate this ominous machine and open the gate to the Mausoleum of the First.
