Shandris and Thalyssra
Shandris and Thalyssra explore Nazjatar together. Previously, we
datamined much of this dialogue
, and today, some of it has been tweaked or officially assigned to a character. Both characters have history with the area, being alive for the Sundering, and exploring the sunken city brings up painful memories.
You can read even more of the Azshara plot, including the explorations of Shandris and Thalyssra with the ghosts of Nazjatar, in our
Azshara broadcast text post
Shandris: I never expected to set eyes upon this city again.
Shandris: Azshara. She sacrificed her people twice over. Once to the Legion. Again to N'Zoth.
Azshara: My sweet child. As a general, you should be familiar with sacrifice. A leader must ever serve the greater good.
Shandris: "Good"?! What "good" is there in trading your people's lives for power? In twisting them into aberrations?!
Azshara: Such a pity. It seems you do not yet understand. Not to worry. Very soon, you will.
Shandris: It sickens me to know that Azshara has cursed Elune's priestesses with a restless death. Please give them the peace they deserve.
Shandris:After I lost my family, it was the Sisterhood of Elune who took me in. Thank you for ending their torment.
Thalyssra: The priestesses of Elune never bowed to Azshara, and were cursed for their defiance. Grant their spirits the peace they were denied.
Thalyssra: Azshara demands that her subjects worship her above all others. Her prideful vanity will be her downfall.
Shandris: Here to admire the Highborne's handiwork, Thalyssra? To look upon all that your hubris has wrought?
Thalyssra: Suramar rebelled against Azshara. Were it not for our courage, the Legion's forces would have overwhelmed Azeroth.
Azshara: It breaks a queen's heart to watch her subjects squabble. Such a futile argument. In the end, you will all be mine again--one way or another.
Shandris: Azshara. Rest assured that we stand united in our contempt for you.
Azshara: You see? We have found common ground already. Dear children, it is only a matter of time until you kneel before my throne. As a willing subject... or a broken corpse.
Thalyssra: Shandris. We sealed off Suramar to keep the Pillars of Creation free from Azshara's grasp. The power she holds with just the Tidestone...
Shandris: I know. So long as it remains in her clutches, we have little hope of victory.
Thalyssra: Zin-Azshari was once the center of all magical knowledge. The key to wresting control of the Tidestone must lie amidst the ruins.
Shandris: I will savor the moment when we finally strike her down. Come. We must push deeper into Zin-Azshari.
Thalyssra: Once we reestablish the network, I should be able to communicate with you through these devices, champion.
Azshara: How quaint of you to restore these remnants of a simpler age.
Thalyssra: Azshara! She has found us.
Azshara: I know who you are, rude little Thalyssra. You presume to refer to yourself as "First Arcanist"? How... ambitious.
Thalyssra: I am First Arcanist Thalyssra of Suramar, and you are not my queen!
Thalyssra: We should move forward, $n. Azshara's preening must not distract us from our goal.
Thalyssra: Your ambitions doomed the people of Zin-Azshari! For this? All to earn the favor of your dark master?
Thalyssra: The Shirakess are conducting dark experiments with the Void. Use this telemancy beacon to deny them their specimens.
Thalyssra: First fel magic, now the Void. Azshara is a prideful fool who tampers with powers beyond her control.
Thalyssra: Azshara incubates entire armies within her vile hatcheries. Ensure that the eggs never reach their destination.
Thalyssra: We cannot allow Azshara to swell her ranks with such aberrations. Well done.
Queen Azshara: You try my patience, outsiders. Murdering my handmaiden, plundering my city's treasures... Such insolence will have consequences.
Queen Azshara: Your refusal to bend the knee offends my loyal subjects. This one wishes to teach you proper respect.
As part of exploring Nazjatar, Shandris and Thalyssra experience a memory of the Sundering, watching their loved ones either perish or serve Azshara.
Queen Azshara: Little Shandris. A lowborn commoner who fancies herself a general. Filth like you shall be washed from the streets of Zin-Azshari.
Queen Azshara: I can abide the ignorance of your companions, but you should know better than to defy your rightful queen.
Queen Azshara: But I digress. You hoped to be reunited with a lost loved one. Allow me to grant your wish.
Queen Azshara: You would presume to challenge my magic, Thalyssra? Allow me to demonstrate why you never ascended to Grand Magistrix.
Queen Azshara: Enough, Sivara. My subjects cannot grovel if they are dead. I will allow them one final chance to kneel before my throne.
I need that to prepare cakes for the Queen's arrival! Pay with your life!
It's worse than I thought. They are blinded by Azshara's will. The curse has driven some them mad...
Let's check the bakery. Corin always loved their cakes...
No sign of Corin. Let's go to the old inn. He used to hang around there chatting up the locals for hours.
Corin loved it here. Look, there's his old stein!
Outsider! We only accommodate those who serve the Queen!
Still no Corin. My last hope is the gardens by our former home. Please be there...
Father! $n, we must do something!
No! All must... serve.
Kelya is that you?
Yes, it's me. That naga was trying to get you to submit to Azshara's will!
We will meet you where our journey began, $n. My father and I have much to discuss...
You there! Please. I am in dire need of assistance. My father is missing...
I hope my father does not suffer the same fate.
That naga witch is trying to bend my father's sprit to Azshara's will just like the others!
Shandris: Janius? My closest childhood friend... we were playing together when the Legion attacked our village...
Shandris: I knew many of these people. They were my friends... my loved ones... all of them are gone...
Shandris: Be at peace, my dear friend.
Thalyssra: Wait... I sense something... someone... familiar...
Thalyssra: Sivara... my most gifted student. It was on my recommendation that she enrolled in the Royal Academy.
Thalyssra: Sivara? No! You chose to serve Azshara?!
Neptulon, a long-standing enemy of the Old Gods, provides assistance:
Neptulon has sent his most powerful lieutenants to aid us in battle! Speak to them and carry out the Tidehunter's will.
Uh, do you know a huge guy made of water? Has an army of elementals? He's asking for you. Better not keep him waiting.
It is a great honor to fight alongside the Waterlords. May Neptulon's currents guide us to victory.
Hey, think you can convince that guy to come along and crush more of the naga? He made it look easy.
Azshara's minions intend to force these creatures into servitude. Stop them.
No living thing deserves to be enslaved by Azshara. Break the chains! Break the slavers! Break the naga!
Jaina and Shaw in Baine Scenario
Jaina and Shaw don't get a warm welcome from some hostile goblins:
One day the goblins might outpace gnomish innovation. But not today.
They should use their minds to save the world instead of devising ways to tear it apart.
Looks like we're about to get a bit of firsthand experience with them, too.
Well, well, well. If it ain't Sneaky Spy-Guy and Sea Captain Lady Lord!
Killin' you guys is gonna earn me a HUGE raise!
Beware, beware this, toots!
Oglethorpe and the Chicken
is the creator of mechanical chicken beacons, whom adventurers find around Azeroth and follow around in escort quests. Completing all the OOX quests rewards
. He resides in Booty Bay, far away from Gnomeregan, and we learn he has differences with
, the <Chief Architect of Gnomish Engineering>.
it appears he has unleashed an annoying chicken,
, upon the unsuspecting Overspark.
"That inferior, incompetent, injudicious, inconsistent, insufferable Overspark!
<Oglethorpe takes a deep breath.>
I'm sorry, but if you've spent any time with "Tinkmaster" Overspark, I'm certain that you can understand my frustration.
Him and his foolish council are the reason I left Gnomeragan, you know...
All because of his inferiority, incompetence, injudiciousness, inconsistency, and insufferableness!
It's fine. I will prove him wrong.
I'll prove them all wrong!"
CLUCK! Primary directive override. Return to creator.

Give that pompous Overspark something to cry about.
Overspark... I've got a surprise for you...
Call me an "intellectual threat", eh, Overspark? I'll give you an intellectual threat...
Here's a little payback for you, Overspark...
Remember, only hit that arrogant jape Overspark.
You know what to do...
Oglethorpe cackles mischievously.
Ouch! What in the shrunken gyrochronatom?!
I demand to know what intellectual deviant is behind these cowardly poultry attacks!

CLUCK! Oglethorpe is best. Overspark is worst.
Odd. I don't remember outfitting one of my chickens with that much firepower...
I'll document the OOX-35/MG's natural propensity for rocket evolution.
Let me know if you find any other examples of such alterations on my chickens across the island.
While you take care of that, I'll make sure Overspark gets a nasty surprise...
Oglethorpe cackles mischievously.
Mag'har and Brewfest
Brewfest is receiving some updates in 2019, and while it's a natural fit for the Dark Iron Dwarves to participate in the festivities, their Mag'har Orc counterparts needs some more lore to explain their interest in the holiday.
When I came to Azeroth, I felt lost in a new land.
I had a purpose: to serve the Horde. But how would I serve those that I did not know?
So I, alongside my brewers, ventured to find my place in the Horde, to find others like me... like us.
It was not until my first Brewfest that I found where I belonged.
Although your traditions here may be different than ours on Draenor, I learned about your people through your food and your drink. Experiences we share, though our perspectives may be different.
It is my honor, as well as the honor of Warpath Ales, to step up and help lead Brewfest into a new era. An era where the myriad people of the Horde can come together to celebrate and share our experiences.
Today, and for the rest of Brewfest, we celebrate our shared experience that ties us together as brothers and sisters of the Horde. We share cup, plate, and culture, strengthening our bonds as one Horde.
Now I invite you, my brothers and sisters, to count down to the tapping of the keg.
Raise your glasses, people of the Horde!
In 20 minutes Brewmaster Gadar will tap the Brewfest Keg!
Only 10 more minutes until Brewmaster Gadar taps the Brewfest keg!
Brewmaster Gadar is on his way! The "Tapping of the Keg" will take place in just a few short minutes!
"The prince of this place thinks he can tell us not to kill Alliance scumbags?
BOAR'S DUNG! I kill Alliance scumbags whenever I damn well feel like it.
<Usha leans forward and whispers.>
Found a place outside town where the fightin' rules aren't as strict. You in?
That is, if the baby prince hasn't melted your heart with his soft, cuddly words...
<Usha throws back her head and laughs.>
Don't go soft on me, $n."
"The wee prince o' this island "commands" we don't fight the Horde swine here.
Ye think I e'er let a durned gnome tell me whatta do!?
<Grumbol leans forward and whispers extremely loudly.>
Ya wanna fight? We got a place outside o' town where the rules aren't so... strict.
Unless ya'd rather cuddle up with the stinkin' Horde running around here instead. Is that what you like, $n?
<Grumbol throws back his head and laughs.>
Nah, yer a fighter. Just like me!"
"<Longshot holds up a finger as she listens to her earpiece.>
Yeah, hold on one sec, boss. Some meathead's botherin' me.
No I'll take care of it.
<Longshot turns to you.>
Look, meathead. Bondo's deal is simple: every 30 minutes, he pays to put a big fancy chest loaded with loot in the back of this cave.
You loot it, you keep it.
You die, our audience is entertained.
Now, leave me alone and let me work."
"Of course you don't. You think spectators want to stand in the middle of the fighting?
Use your meaty head, meathead. We got cameras rollin'."
