      Blizzard - Sylvanas isn't going to be another litch king. Video - literally discribing how she is going for the source of that power, and retcons their statement. Blizzard - Don't you guys have bad memories? Fans: 😡

    2. The_Grim _Gamer

      Just a fair reminder that if blizzard didn't kill off Varian. Varian would have easily fought off getting kidnapped. Seriously. He'd strike them both down barely an effort and be like "so where were we genn?"

    4. Umomo

      What is the music used in the beginning of this cinematic. Wasn't this in patch 8.3 already?

    5. João Luiz

      Save us Arthas

    6. savat

      i feel bad for Greymane

    7. Valashnikov

      getting real tired of the "old interesting character (horde) character being turned into evil ones for plot convenience" gimmick

      1. Dojjin

        Nah, she is going to get redeemed at some point and be this bastion of change that Azeroth truly needed or something along those lines.

    8. Deniz Chill

      So this is the writing power of diversity hires. This is unironically fan fiction.

    9. boringstuff

      how many time does grenn has to look at his king being kidnapped lol

    10. Tor Henry Andreassen

    12. The One

      1. Shaggy2286

        She is dead. Well, undead... she died once already anyway.

    13. Alex Poe

      Can't start black empire campaign because of the absence of Anduin Had to abandon "On Whispered Wind" to spawn him

    14. Atomic Lich King

      Be me, the Deathlord of the Ebon Blade. "Bolvar... What are you doing in MY throne? Get out of my necropolis. If you must, you may stand NEAR the throne, but never upon it. You can't lose your own, then come crawl into mine."

    15. Mark Kelly guitar

      Guys your all forgetting one thing Sylvanas already has access to the shadowlands her and her minions are already level 60

    16. Paul Hofer

      *is eating cereal* *opens refrigerator* *out of milk* "SYLVANAAAAAASSSSSSSSS!"

    19. ZgermanGuy

      oh so the death knights become relevant after 10 years thats nice

    20. MegaRoFLL

      My Queen cometh

    21. asdfer 123

      'Anduin, use shackle Undead!'

    22. Skulthadar

      She has done the unthinkable...... Me : Say that to my graphics card

    23. Dan Buck Wild

      Man genn was simping hard for anduin to get kidnapped, dude didn't even try to get a guard or run after him or anything just stood there like a kid trying to get their teachers attention

    24. João Salsa

      So tired of Sylvanus 🤦‍♂️

    25. Μιχάλης Λαγός

      *Graymane shouting SYLVANAS intensifies

    26. Peyton Ibarra

      They should put a leashed backpack on Andiun, this kid keeps wandering off or getting taken.

    27. Ahmed Hilal

      isn't it too early to publish this video while it contents are not ready yet ?? just 13 days till now and nothing new in the updates !! :)

    28. Sepih HD

      dear blizzard employees I would like to thank you very much. That despite covid 19 pandemic and forest fire in California you bring out hotfixes. You continue to work meticulously on Shadowlands. Many demand and demand but do not see the work and time that you invest in bringing out a good add on. I wish all employees the best of health. thank you for your hard work lg sepih

    29. Robert Wright

      Greymane is a terrible guy to have around.

    31. Mr. YD

      it's so frustrting to watch how awful the scene of kidnapling Anduin is. the kids anime could describe much better way

    32. Emrald70

      Bolvar: Our End Is Near. Adventurers: Oh, is it already Patch Day again? Bolvar: What is Patch Day? Adventurers: It's nothing to worry about. Go and be injured, we'll handle this.

    33. 진짜몰라

      End of WOW cinematic

    34. shima pan

      so bad writing

    35. 상하이조Siry

      This is ryn drawing. . .?

    36. 3djooboy


    37. Lev L.

      And now Alliance must choose a new king. I think Thrall will be good king...

    38. addekrams

      This is so uninspired, haha. Well, enjoy it I guess.

    39. Frederik Olssen


    40. magnibronzi


    41. Mara Ch.

      So the new expansion is all about save the Princess Anduin ?

    42. NextG666

      Blizzard story group 2005: Onyxia has concocted an elaborate scheme to abduct the king of Stormwind through manipulation, deceit and magic and replace him with a weak copy of himself under her control. Blizzard story group 2020: Yoink! NOOOO! SYLVANAAAAAS!

    43. Sergane Sariani

      so is Sylvanas evil now?

    44. Bostan Liviu

      Anduin gets abducted by elite val'kyrs. *Calmly* ,Genn,calls Sylvanas name.

    45. TehGnomeh

      They really should find new writers. Like at least 10 years ago.

    46. Dragomir Petrov

      It's nice to see the King of SW being the victim of a kidnapping for a change. Maybe they will make him lose his memory, and put an evil twin in his stead on the throne. The good twin will be forced into merciless gladiator fights, where he will reclaim his memory piece by piece...Oh! And plot twist - the evil twin is not so evil! So, they just took Mokuba's life out of Yu Gi Oh, and put it in WoW...

    47. MihaZ

      Came for the lore, but the lore was already gone.

    48. Twilightdrifter

      World of Wokecraft: Karenlands Slyvannas would like to speak to your manager. :p

    49. Szymon Kaliński

      My queen Sylvanas I miss you so much 😥 !! I can't wait to meet you again and serve you again 🥰.

    50. Serevarno

      If Wrynn ever bothered to buy a flying mount, he could have just chased them down.

    51. Aerolithe Lion

      Tonight, on Top Gear: I sit on a throne. Hammond has a sword. And James... yells at the sky.

    52. emoon 89


    53. Keln

      All I get from every wow intro is : "The end is near" "The end is coming" "So... End called, he can't be there, so his bro Apocalypse will take over"

      1. British Tea

        'Darkness called... but I was on the phone so I missed him.'

    54. Mr Pupp

      Whoever is responsible for this storytelling, please quit your job. Lol Blizzard is the lamest game company right after bethesta now. wc3 reforged wasnt enough a scandal i guess

    55. Andrey White

      Андуинчика няшку пахители.

    56. Glarcier

      dear WoW writers, please quit and take lessons

    57. Rafiuddin Galib

      I was expecting some sort of reference to the jailer, but that was entirely centered around Sylvanas. Weird because I assumed the main antagonist of shadowland would be the jailer... especially when everything Sylvanas has done is part of the deal she made with him

      1. wendywarrior1

        There is another version of the first part of this vid where Sylvanas references the Jailer. But either way, YES. This is clear evidence of Blizzard's complete inability to tell a story that makes sense, write the story, handle the story, or maintain lore. It's just embarassing.

    58. Heimskr

      Love this scene man. The only thing that upsets me is that Genn got cucked by Turalyon as acting king. Seems so weird.

    59. Dreaddead

      Wow simp queen still getting stronger and stronger, blizzard end this fanservice bullshit, this wont save wow

    60. Brandon Boss

      It's clear to me Anduin wanted to be abducted or he would have actually fought back.

    61. Gala

      $20 says Anduin gets saved by Uther.

    62. Lucian Andries

      What was he yelling??

    63. Dootie

      The Yoinkening

    64. Aetherbeast

      Is there a quest involved to get this cinematic in pre-patch?

    65. Shadovvwithoutbody

      I just dont know how the Mawsworns could make difference between Anduin and his horse.

    66. yuoop noke

      I would say that this is just lazy writing pushing content but apparently, Sylvanas ran off with the content too.

    67. Kaptin Krybaby

      When two Evil MAwsworn grabbed Anduin he was like lets see how they get me out of this.

    68. K&A GAMES

      Sad, silly pokers without destructive testosteron))) what a shame men....

      1. yuoop noke

        blizzard staff who openly brag about hating white men and it all makes sense.

    69. s s

      WTF!!! If it was this easy to kidnap leader of alliance, why bring war on azeroth??

    70. MrOctopusprime

      INB4 Anduin is tortured, becomes evil and is the next raid boss because that's the only way blizzard knows how to keep tensions high between the factions... Tally of which side has had more leaders as raid bosses.

    71. Not Visible

      This is just a mario adaptation I like that

    72. Kernelly

      Sylvanas kills Genn's son. Genn: Sylvanas! Sylvanas doesn't help on the broken shore. Genn: Sylvanas! Sylvanas gets insane tries to get a magic lantern and Genn steals it and destroys it. Genn: Sylvanas! That's for my son! Sylvanas burns teldrassil which was home of worgen as well as their allies. Genn: Sylvanas! Sylvanas steals anduin with the help of three random death angels. Genn: SYLAAAAAANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!! Sylvanas destroys The Jailer and takes his power to endlessly kill Genn over and over in 2022. Genn: Sylvanas!

      1. Kernelly

        Is he ever gonna do something more?

    73. Kernelly

      Wow, Genn the madman. Sylvanas scream x50 a year

    74. Sergeant Rho

      as difinições de "dois caras numa moto" foram atualizadas!

    75. Jiggle Meats

      Boy they both just accept that. Hardly an ounce of resistance, just yoink and gone

    76. Ariux

      What a coincidence they all happened to be outside at the time Sylvanas tried this.

    77. Balázs Fényes

      Blizzard cant put together a good game anymore but hey, they can still make good cinematics.

    78. bmxdude1337

      So is she just Cortana now??? Real original

    79. Eduardo Barros

      I mean, Genn jumped high enough to stay on the ceiling of Hyrja's room, he could have transformed and easily cut those chains couldnt he?

    80. weevole

      Poorly executed

    81. nikesshoes2011

      does anybody know sylvanas end goal?

    82. Bartoc

      Guess Shadowlands will be the last expansion because Sylvanas will win. The Mary Sue Powers are too strong in this one.

    83. Brainstorm Surge

      Greymane should have just shouted, "Anduin! Use Shackle Undead!" Then at least he would be fine.

    84. Apocalypse Lemon

      I thought this was weird because 2 literal nobodies just kidnapped the king of storm wind who commands the power of the light, then I remembered that there are writers on the blizzard staff who openly brag about hating white men and it all makes sense.

    85. frank yey

      Dam this is so epic , makeme wana comeback and play wow but then i will be training my pets like always.. uwu and never reaching the maximun lvl ..

    86. Gril drago

      I came from carbot

    87. Alx Sblv


    88. Raven Wintermoon

      Why only Horde produce BBEG T-T I wona se some Aliance Evil too!

    89. SHARemation

      Ok. Ill say it again. All story of warcraft after BC is total bullshit. Now even more then before.

    90. Maarten Hulshorst

      I'm gonna love Shadowlands, so many hours will be put into older, better expansion content.

    91. Black Light


    92. Lux Dolor

      I thought Anduin and Greymane would have some reflexes and battle experiences after long years of wars to be able to do something but nope.

    93. Ya Ya

      It would be incredible and the only correct way to return Arthas with all his paraphernalia (crown and sword) and at the end of the add-on send somewhere further like Illidan! To rid of such a character is stupid ... and this particular option will always instill intrigue and expectation from fans! + The film studio plans to make a film about the Lich King! PS: Thanks for the content, as always gorgeous and there is something to think about! Gorgeous fantasy universe!

    94. Dawid Mikołajczak


    95. Eugene Soloviov

      This looks so dumb.

    96. Robert Pifer

      Disconnected idiots

    97. Mary LAB


    98. Josh Jinbok Lee

      Literally STUPIDEST ingame cinematic in Wow. I see the end of this game.

    99. TheTimeSword

      Ahh. New expansion, new enemies, and the same old dumb storyline. Wouldn't be World of Warcraft without it.

    100. Pleased to Enter a Name

      Who is Medevious?
