Battle for Azeroth Alliance Intro Scenario Updates (Spoilers)
22/04/2018 à 07:38
The Battle for Azeroth Alliance intro scenario has received updates since the last time we previewed it in early alpha. This scenario takes place following the
Burning of Teldrassil
Battle for Lordaeron
and Horde intro scenario.
We have played through the scenario again and marked dialogue that has changed since earlier builds.
and the later quests have been added, which introduce the player to Boralus and Taelia, including her mysterious family.
More dialogue between Anduin, Jaina, and Genn has been added.
We get to see Jaina in Kul Tiras for
, as well as datamined text describing a nightmare she has on the ship.
Early Heart of Azeroth quests have been added.
: Our enemies remain one step ahead of us. We must close that gap.
: The time has come to call upon old allies in distant lands, and to see the true might of the Alliance made whole again.
: Pack your bags and report to Swormwind Keep immediately. You're heading for Kul Tiras.
: Upon arriving at Stormwind Keep:
Lady Jaina Proudmoore
: The Horde has just run wild through Stormwind and you want to send me home?!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore
: We should head for Zandalar immediately and deliver those animals to justice!
: Underestimating our enemy has already cost us enough lives.
: There is now a more important task at hand, Jaina. Something only you can do.
Anduin: Everyone is here. What news do you bring, Spymaster?
Shaw: Recently, Horde agents broke into the Stockades and freed two Zandalari prisoners.
Shaw: A princess. And a prophet.
Anduin: I'm aware. What of the eight warships we sent in pursuit?
Shaw: Only one returned.
Shaw: Survivors say they encountered strange and terrifying magics.
Shaw: And a massive Zandalari fleet.
Genn: Impossible! It's one of Sylvanas' tricks. It has to be...
Shaw: Jaina, perhaps you could help us see what this survivor has seen?
Jaina: It's an easy enough spell, provided the subject is willing.
Jaina: Show us...show us what happened.
Kul Tiras is the greatest naval power in all of Azeroth and a former ally, but we've had little contact with them since Jaina's father, Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, was defeated at Theramore. Many have criticized Jaina's decision that day. She believed so deeply in the promise of peace between the Alliance and Horde that she betrayed her own father. I suppose the time has come for her to atone for this. Loath as I am to put Jaina in harm's way... Kul Tiras must join the Alliance. Good luck.
Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth
: My king, the Lady Jaina's ship is ready to set sail.
: Thank you, admiral. This hero will be joining her.
: Kul Tiras must pledge their fleet to the Alliance. Can I count on you, Jaina?
Lady Jaina Proudmoore
: I will see it done. I will do anything to defeat the Horde.
: <Sigh.> That is what I am afraid of...
Anduin: If the Horde makes allies of the Zandalari, we won't have the power to stop them.
Jaina: Then we must make allies of our own.
Genn: Jaina, you're the reason they left the Alliance.
Jaina: I must prepare my ship. Champion, meet me in the harbor when you are ready to depart.
There may be additional text coming in the future:
Jaina: My people command the most powerful navy in all of Azeroth.
Jaina: If I could bring Kul Tiras back into the Alliance...
Genn: Jaina, you're the reason they left the Alliance.
Jaina: And dealing with that is the only hope we have of bringing them back.
Anduin: I believe it is... and I believe you can.
Anduin: It will be difficult... and dangerous.
Jaina: I will return with the fleet... or not at all.
Anduin: Be careful, Jaina. Light be with you.
We then get an unfinished cutscene, marked as Ship on open water, Jaina's nightmare, arrival at Boralus gates.
They're not letting us any closer to the keep. We'll have to walk from here. Returning to Boralus has stirred feelings I thought I'd left behind - memories smoothed away by the years like stones in the tide. It all feels raw again. I do not know how this will end - only that we must try.
In this quest we see her walk through the streets of Boralus, treated as a dangerous criminal. Many citizens are angered by her presence, as they consider her past actions a betrayal of her father and homeland.
Another unfinished cinematic takes place:
We've also datamined broadcast text implying there's a folksong about Jaina:
"Beware, beware the Daughter of the Seas."
"Beware," I heard him cry.
His words carried upon the ocean breeze,
As he sank beneath the tide.
Those blood-soaked shores of Kalimdor,
Where sailors fought and died.
The admiral fell at Theramore,
because she left his side.
Why this? Why this oh Daughter of the Seas?
Why this? Did you forget your seaside days?
Always the pride of our nation's eyes,
How could she go astray?
When she did flee across the ocean deep,
the admiral followed west.
What else but sail to save a daughter's life,
and pray she still drew breath?
But there he found on the Western shores,
Enemies 'on the rise!
But when he faced those savage foes
His daughter stood aside.
Buried deep beneath the waves,
Betrayed by family.
To his nation, with his last breath, cried,
"Beware the Daughter of the Seas."
I was beginning to think I'd have to carry you out of here. We're in Tol Dagor. Used to be a legit prison 'til the Ashvane Trading Company bought it. Now it's full of thugs on both sides of the bars. Anyway, it seems you've got a secret admirer. They're paying me a king's bounty to break you outta here. Stick with me and we'll be back to Boralus in time for supper. You like chowder? I know a place with the best chowder. Name's Flynn, by the way.
The player must punch Flynn to escape and create a riot to leave.
Alright, here's the plan:
Come on, hit me.
AUGH OH, YOU BRUTE!
GUARD! GUARD! HELP! HELP!
Hey! What's going on in there?!
Quick! Hit that lever!
Riot boys! Give 'em hell!
Let's find the head jailer for this cell block and get his key!
Told him he'd regret lockin' me up. Now where's my stuff...
Ahh, that's better! I felt naked without these!
Let's get down to the lower levels and look for a way out.
Escape through the sewers.
Something touched my leg!
Wait wait, no. It was just my other leg. We're good.
Escape the jailer, dodging pillars of light.
You! Stop right there!
<Jailer gets eaten by beast.>
It's time to go. Our ride should be waiting for us just up the beach.
Meet Taelia at the getaway boat.
Right on time, as usual. Thanks for coming on such short notice!
<Get on the getaway boat with Taelia.>
We have to stop meeting like this.
I know, I know. But I got something BIG on Ashvane.
Plus I made a friend! Crime-buddy, Taelia. Taelia, crime-buddy.
Wait...I recognize you...
You arrived with Jaina Proudmoore! You're the Alliance emissary!
Wait, Jaina's back? How did that go over with Katherine?
You literally just broke the emissary out of an Ashvane prison. How do you think it went?
Ashvane won't be happy about your little stunt. There are probably bounty hunters looking for you as we speak.
You'll be safe in the market though. They wouldn't dare try anything here.
Thanks for the lift, Tae. I'll see you at the tavern.
Taelia: What is going on in there? It sounds like you started a riot!
Flynn: No idea what you're talking about...But I think we finally have somme real dirt on Ashvane.
Flynn: A new gunpowder, like nothing I've ever seen.
Flynn: OH, and I rescued the target, of course. Crime-buddy, Taelia. Taelia, crime-buddy.
Taelia: Wait...I recognize you...
Taelia: You arrived with Jaina Proudmoore! You're the Alliance emissary!
Flynn: Alliance emissary?! Cyrus didn't mention that...I would have charged him double!
Taelia: You're lucky he's paying you at all. Now row!
Taelia: Here we are - Boralus Harbor. Aside from Proudmoore Keep, it's the most heavily guarded part of the city. And the only place most visitors ever get to see.
Taelia: Looks like the Alliance ship has already docked. Hopefully they got a warmer welcome than Jaina did...
Ah, home at last. I think a proper introduction is in order! My name is Taelia, member of the Proudmoore Guard and squire of Sir Cyrus Crestfall. <Taelia salutes firmly.> Cyrus asked me and Flynn to break you out of that Ashvane prison and get you settled in here at the market, but he neglected to mention that you're with the Alliance. I must say, it's an honor. Let's get you up to speed.
Than you for helping Flynn. I've been bailing him out of trouble since we were kids.
My name's Taelia. I'm with the Proudmoore Guard.
You must be wondering why I'd help you after Katherine turned away the Alliance.
Let's just say things here in Kul Tiras are a little more complicated than they appear. I'll get you up to speed soon enough.
For now, let me show you around the marketplace.
Taelia: I take it this is your first visit to Kul Tiras? Don't worry, I'll make sure you're all settled in!
Taelia: This ferry connects to stations all along the interior coast of the sound.
Taelia: You'll need a ferry pass from the Harbormaster. That won't be a problem.
Taelia: The market hosts merchants from all over Azeroth. There are many taverns, but this one's my favorite!
Taelia: I spend a lot of time in here pestering travelers to tell me their stories. Especially folks from the Eastern Kingdoms!
Taelia: Ah, there's my girl. You must be restless, being cooped up here all day.
Taelia: Believe me, I know the feeling. We'll fly soon, alright?
Taelia: She's beautiful isn't she? Cyrus gave her to me when she was a hatchling.
Taelia: The counting house is under heavy guard day and night. Feel free to store your valuables here.
The rest of the quests are new since the last time we previewed the scenario.
These days Cyrus is the Harbormaster, but he used to be one of Daelin Proudmoore's most trusted knights! Until I came along. You see, my mother was from Lordaeron and my father was a Stormwind knight. When he lost my mother to the Scourge, my father sent me here. Then he... well, all I've been told is that he gave his life to defeat the Lich King. Daelin hand-picked Cyrus to raise me. He would have never taken a desk job otherwise. Anyway, he's probably checking in your other ship. Let's go!
(Taelia's line about her family sounds like foreshadowing, right? We learned more about her family through
datamined broadcast text
We go to find Cyrus, but instead we find him confronting Lady Ashvane's guards.
Taelia: Wait...what on earth is happening?
Guard: But sir... Lady Ashvane ordered--
Cyrus: Lady Ashvane? Do you serve Lady Ashvane? Is that Lady Ashvanes crest upon your shield?
Guard: N-no, sir.
Cyrus: No! You serve Kul Tiras! You wear the crest of Proudmoore! And you take your orders from ME.
Cyrus: Now stand down and let them pass. We shall parley in my office.
Cyrus: King Greymane, it's an honor. You are free to remain in the harbor on my authority, and you may use my office as your war room.
Cyrus: Hmph...Humor an old knight for a moment, would you?
Cyrus: I was in a battle many years ago - must have been the Second War.
Cyrus: An orcish juggernaut struck our transport. Splinters from the gunnel ripped across the deck and tore into a friend of mine.
Cyrus: Should have been his ticket home, but he was ashamed to leave the war before we'd finished it. So, he patched himself up and told the healers he was fine.
Cyrus: Days later my friend died in his bunk, screaming and drenched in sweat. His wounds had closed, but infection had set in.
Cyrus: By the time he asked for help, it was too late.
Cyrus: Kul Tiras still bears the scars of the Third War. Nobody feels this as truly as Katherine Proudmoore.
Cyrus: But she is misguided. She has been kept blind to the infection that has spread throughout our kingdom.
Cyrus: Kul Tiras is falling apart. We need the Alliance as badly as you need us.
Genn: I see. Then we shall prove to Katherine Proudmoore the same truth that I learned at great cost.
Genn: In unity there is strength.
I suppose it was too much to hope they had forgiven Jaina. Her uncertain fate is troubling, but we must remain focused on the mission. We must bring Kul Tiras into the Alliance. If Katherine Proudmoore is unwilling to hear us out, these sympathizers are our best hope. Our first priority is to establish a portal to Stormwind. Would you be so kind as to fetch one of the 7th Legion mages from outside?
Genn: Do you feel that? Some sort of...tremor...
Magni: Genn Greymane! I must have words with the champion.
Taelia: A...diamond dwarf?
Flynn: Well, this is new.
Genn: At ease, all. This is Magni Bronzebeard--once king of Ironforge, now Speaker for Azeroth.
Genn: Kul Tiras faces grave peril, Magni. But I assume you have come for...other reasons.
Magni: I got somethin' <name> needs tae see. A gift that can aid this land as well.
I know the people of Kul Tiras need yer aid, <name>. But there's more at stake than the fate o' a single kingdom. Azeroth needs yer help. And in turn, she offers tae lend ye hers. She bid me tae bring ye to a titan chamber at the heart of the world. Ye can hear her voice there.
Now that ye hold the Heart of Azeroth, ye can absorb the power of azerite from many sources. In fact, I believe yer friend Taelia is holdin' one. The teleporter pad behind ye will return ye tae Kul Tiras. That nation's people face a great darkness. I know ye'll aid the fine folks ye meet there. But always remember... ye wear the heart of our world around yer neck. Whatever happens in the battle tae come... we must save Azeroth.
