Following their Arthas teaser posted yesterday, Screenrant has published their

, and details from the
Full Shadowlands Interview
Aside from the interesting tidbit
that characters will discuss the legacy of Arthas at the end of a major Shadowlands story arc, what stood out in this interview was the discussion of
. The Bastion and Maldraxxus cinematics at the time generated a fair amount of discussion due to subtle details with large lore implications--Uther's soul split in two and Draka sneaking into a Legion stronghold.
In this interview, Danuser references both moments and confirms these were deliberate subtle choices to hint at larger storylines. He also pointed out that other moments in the series will have a greater impact once players experience more of the Shadowlands story--perhaps some details from Ardenweald or Revendreth will suddenly stand out.
Steve Danuser: We know that no detail, no matter how small or seemingly incidental, escapes the watchful eye of our players. From concept, to script, to storyboards, to animatics, all the way to final sound and images, every word and every frame is lovingly crafted in painstaking detail. Nothing is there by accident.
Players have already picked up on a number of elements that hint at larger storylines or concepts. When we depicted Uther's soul being shattered by Frostmourne, we wondered if the detail might be too subtle. But in fact, the community spotted that immediately and began speculating what that might mean for Uther and other characters. When we showed Draka infiltrating a Burning Legion stronghold, viewers quickly picked up on a reference to an earlier cinematic and realized the implication that the Necrolords not only defend against invasions, but travel beyond the Shadowlands to neutralize potential threats.
There are other details in the Afterlives series that will take on greater meaning once players can play through the full Shadowlands story and see how these elements tie together.
