Default 4chan guess at the entire Legion plot.

Spoilers if you believe it. I'd be happy if this was all true because it would be amazing and epic. Way better than the WoD story at least.


>Varian and Vol'jin are missing, presumed dead

>Anduin is forced to lead and is unsure of his ability to do so, recalls Wrathion's words that he would not be a capable king

>Sylvanas makes an aggressive bid for Warchief but the Horde is unable to agree, Baine and Thrall are the voices of reason that the Horde differs to, Sylvanas is denied

>Malfurion is captured and tortured by the Legion in his campaign against Xavius during the Emerald Nightmare raid

>Cenarius is lost to the Nightmare and must be killed

>The Nightmare is ultimately pushed back, but Malfurion is lost to the Legion, but not killed

>Horde and Alliance are successful in beating the Nightborne in Suramar Palace (raid) and acquiring the Pillar of Creation

>Gul'dan is completely demonic at the end of Suramar Palace, it is hinted he can no longer die and can only be sent back to the Nether, a la the rest of the demons / Demon Hunters

>Before the Alliance and Horde can use the Pillar of Creation to help defeat the Legion, Tyrande gives the Legion the Pillar of Creation to trade for Malfurion

>Malfurion isn't given back regardless of the trade

>Anduin feels responsible for Tyrande's actions and technical betrayal of her allies' trust

>Horde doesn't agree with the trade and gets angry, Sylvanas gains traction and more support towards her bid as Warchief

>During the constant commotion of the Broken isles campaign, Nathanos Blightcaller is targeted by Greymane and assassinated during what was intended to be a joint Horde-Alliance mission against the Legion

>The Horde views this as dishonorable and Sylvanas seizes control of the Horde uncontested and reluctantly yet fully supported

>Anduin begins to lose faith in himself as he is seemingly unable to control his subjects. Tyrande and now Greymane have been directly insubordinate. He fears Wrathion was right about his inability to do what is necessary for survival and to lead

>Velen offers Anduin support and to trust in the light, Anduin is not sure "the light" is who he is anymore

>Sylvanas launches a campaign to avenge Nathanos Blightcaller, rather odd allusions to Nathanos and Sylvanas being lovers when they were alive (What is it with Windrunners banging human dudes?)

>Things begin to fall apart as the Horde and Alliance continue to bicker and fight one another in increasingly extreme cases

>Nobody is listening to Anduin and Sylvanas is on a rampage

>Sylvanas is successful in hunting down Greymane

>Greymane reveals himself as Varimathras, the real Greymane has been missing since the invasion of the Broken Isles began

>The fight is brought to the Undercity, paralleling the Wrath Gate event, and Sylvanas sacrifices herself to use her final Val'kyr to resurrect the player character and Khadgar, the prior of which is killed by an imp (Killrog's vision?)

>It is revealed Sylvanas has struck a deal with Helya: Sylvanas would be saved if she manages to redeem herself, saving the player character and Khadgar over herself was that redeeming act

>Sylvanas is resurrected by Helya

>Sylvanas, now realizing Varimathras wanted to ruin Horde and Alliance relations to assure a Legion victory, goes to Stormwind to rally Anduin into a cease-fire

>The Horde and Alliance band together for a final push into the Tomb of Sargeras

>Portals in the Tomb of Sargeras are ripping at Azeroth during the player's raid

>Kil'jaeden appears to be forcing his way into Azeroth through a massive portal in the Tomb

>Old God forces and Naga attack the tomb and raid near the end of the instance, and are more successful than the Alliance and Horde / players at stopping the demons

>Alliance and Horde / players were losing before the Old Ones and Naga showed up

>Old Ones are closing the portals and consuming their immense power and energy

>The Legion's advance is almost completely shut down by the Naga and Old Ones

>Kil'jaeden's massive portal and possible Kil'jaeden are consumed by a gigantic Faceless beast

>Horde and Alliance are trapped in the middle and poorly outmatched

>Players must escape the collapsing tomb a la Maiev in Warcraft III, sacrificing their artifact weapons' power along the way to feed to Old Ones / distract the Old Ones (has no effect on game play, it is assumed this is to explain away the artifacts in the following expansion)

>Old Ones and Naga are successful at harvesting the demons and their portals

>Nzoth has accumulated enough energy from eating L'Ghorek during Cataclysm, siphoning energy out of the Emerald Dream via the Nightmare, and now consuming demons and their immensely energy-rich portals to break free of its torpor and prison

>The Legion is halted once again, but Nzoth has played everyone perfectly. It implied Nzoth could tell the future because of corrupted/Infinite Nozdormu, and proceeded to use Kairoz to get Gul'dan to Azeroth to provide the necessary energy remaining to free itself.

The above disproves it. Sylvannas is referred to multiple times as the Warchief of the Horde while Nathanos is still very much alive. The Stormheim intro quests have her ruling from Orgrimmar and then you quest with Nathanos afterwards.

Greymane being a dreadlord all along would be absolute dogshit.

Not a good story.

Legit leaks do happen on 4chan, but this seems like your average everyday speculah to me.

The Tyrande part is already wrong, as Xavius's lines about "Your Archdruid belongs to me" and "I have the Pillar muahahaha" don't even involve Malfurion or Tyrande in the quests. They are about a new archdruid.

Or Maiev and Jarod, for that matter. Plus it keeps talking about the player as "the Alliance and Horde," yet has no real mention of any of the local factions that the player rallies to fight the Legion.

For it to work at all the story elements involved in the class halls and 99% of the leveling zones would basically have to be dead-ends that never end up tying into the main plot.

For that matter, the whole ending presented is chock full of things that wouldn't even work as raid encounters, as they all involve someone other than the players killing each other while the players flee. It would practically require half of the final raid to not have any actual raid bosses.

I actually like the idea of bringing down the Legion and creating a much much bigger problem on the way. All-out war between old gods and legion sounds amazing imo.

Also, im getting hard thinking of the tears of tyrande fans watching her betray everyone for love

Not going to defend it too much, because...4chan lol. But if someone had posted 100% true spoilers about WoD in the alpha phase they would have all been about Wrathion, Infinites, Maraad, and Doomhammer.

I just want some of the later Old God stuff to happen. It sounds very epic.

The ending is the sort of thing I could hypothetically imagine happening in a tie-in novel, but in-game it would just call for too many "the outmatched raid flees or stands idly by while the bad guys slug it out" situations.

Honestly the whole premise of the end especially rings false as just one situation after another where instead of actually playing the game, the player raid would just be either running away or standing around watching everything happen from the sidelines. None of it particularly leaves any room for fighting bosses and looting gear; it reads like the layout of a patch-long in-game cinematic in place of a final raid.

to be fair, pitting the old gods vs the Legion via the Naga, sounds exactly what someone like Illiguy would do.

lol it's shit

Greymane is a Dreadlord! Sylvanas is the hero all along!

People have been pushing this ever since we learned about the Stormheim zone because "Sylvanas is bad" for some reason doesn't compute in the colossal retarded hivemind that is this game's playerbase

Those at least never made it to public testing, which suggests Blizzard is more confident that what they have now is staying, especially with them giving Nathanos a unique red-eyed human skin/possibly a new model.

I could see a fight room where either a demon and a faceless are fighting and you have to fight around them to clear blockage while surviving, or have a boss that tries to stop you from fleeing, smashing the floor beneath you as you fight with a maw beneath you.
