Nathanos Blightcaller Found as Outdoor Boss on Shadowlands Alpha
weekend preview of Nathanos' Shadowlands audio
, Nathanos Blightcaller has been found on the Shadowlands Alpha and he appears to be a world event boss.
As predicted in our
Nathanos dialgoue post
, we find Nathanos at his old home, Marris Stead, in Eastern Plaguelands. There's some neat symmetry here as that's where we first fought him during the quest
. He was considered a challenging elite, requiring large raids to take him down back in vanilla. He even references that in his dialogue, noting "I've never been much for sentiment, but this takes me back to the old days."
Now on the Shadowlands alpha, he still requires many players to defeat and we face his trusty hounds
again. Currently his loot tables are unknown, and he's also not listed in the Encounter Journal as a world boss, but considering all the nostalgia throwbacks to his original encounter, it's likely we'd see items referencing
We're not sure what happens to Nathanos after this encounter, which ends at 11%, triggering a placeholder cinematic. Does he actually go to Shadowlands and reunite with Sylvanas in the Maw? Does he die because he's already Undead, similar to Sylvanas' original fate in the story "Edge of Night"? Perhaps some major lore events occur in the cinematic, as Blizzard clearly doesn't want us to see it yet. It does seem like a bit of a trap to lure us to his original home.
It's also unclear if this event takes place during Shadowlands proper, or the expansion pre-patch. It would make more sense to have Nathanos serve as a level 50 World Event Boss, tuned for the Shadowlands pre-patch, instead of a level 60 World Boss we need to leave Shadowlands to fight during the expansion. So while he's been found on the Alpha, it's still very unclear what led up to this turn of events, when we'll fight him during the expansion, and what his fate ultimately is.
Here's the audio once again:
Well, well, well. If it isn't Azeroth's mightiest champions.
Congratulations! You managed to track me to the most unlikely places. My very own home.
Seeking retribution for all the bad, bad things I've done I suppose. How frightfully predictable.
I have been waiting a long time for this. Let's get on with it, shall we!
So disappointing! I expected more from you heroes.
Alliance. Horde. Pathetic, the lot of you.
Ha ha ha! Yes! Such delicious hatred.
You call this fighting? Trained by amateurs I see.
Refreshing, isn't it? Facing one another at long last.
Even that decrepit Saurfang put up a better fight than this.
You honestly believe you have a chance against me? How rich!
My hounds will make a meal of your pitiful flesh.
I've never been much for sentiment, but this takes me back to the old days.
All this grows tiresome! Give me a real challenge.
Of course, my queen, we will not disappoint you.
