Shadowlands Cinematic - Breaking the Arbiter - When Did the Machine of Death Break?
Shortly after starting Shadowlands leveling in the
introductory Maw quests
, players encounter the first cinematic, showing the moment the Machine of Death and the Arbiter was broken. As a result of this disruption, all souls throughout Battle for Azeroth were funnel-led into the Maw, including the fallen elves from Teldrassil.

Tal-Inara: For uncounted eons, the Shadowlands was in perfect order.
Tal-Inara: Infinite afterlives, with Oribos, the Eternal City, as the shining heart.
Tal-Inara: Every mortal soul came before the Arbiter, and she, ever wise, experienced all that had shaped the soul in life.
Tal-Inara: With this knowledge, she consigned every soul to the afterlife it justly deserved.
Tal-Inara: In that dread moment, our perfect order was shattered.
Tal-Inara: And so it is that every soul, kind and cruel alike, is denied its rightful afterlife.
Tal-Inara: And instead is damned to the inescapable torment of the Maw.
While the cinematic does not explicitly state which act caused the destruction, if we read into the significance of the red visuals, this could line up with the defeat of Argus the Unmaker, the final boss of Legion who used red as a defining color on Mythic difficulty. Or this could be related to the death of Xavius, at the end of Emerald Nightmare, who also had red corrupt visuals in his encounter.
Of course, we could be reading too much into the red tint, in which cause Helya could be a likely candidate due to her pact with Sylvanas and significance of Helheim.
