Steve Danuser on the Sword in Silithus - Something to Keep an Eye On
In an interview with
, Steve Danuser has reaffirmed that we're not quite done with the sword in Silithus yet. When asked about the Sword of Sargeras that has been sticking out of the planet since the end of Legion, Danuser promised that it's part of a story thread that we will return to - when the time is right.
The first question is for Steve. You’ve mentioned that the power of Azeroth, the main world in WoW, is resurging, which is what triggers the reopening of the Dragon Isles. But in the Battle for Azeroth expansion, we spent nearly the entire expansion attempting to heal the planet’s wounds, caused by a giant sword driven into the Silithus zone by Sargeras at the end of the Legion expansion. The sword’s still there. Are we ever going to fix it?
We have not forgotten about that sword. It still remains a symbol of the calamity that ensued in the battle against the Legion and Sargeras. And obviously in Battle for Azeroth, we saw the effects on the planet as that sword triggered the manifestation of Azerite deposits springing up throughout the world.
While that has subsided, that sword remains a symbol. I would say that's something to keep an eye on and be watching for. It's a story thread that we'll return to when the time is right, but rest assured, we remember that the sword is there and there will be a story to tell about it and what effects it continues to have upon the world.
Danuser's response is in keeping with a previous statement in
a 2020 interview with Taliesin & Evitel
Taliesin & Evitel
: Will the sword disappear from Silithus?
: The sword has a part to play in something to come.
This helps clear up a previous
interview with buffed
, where Ion Hazzikostas
referred to the sword as a "big splinter"
. Ion has also since joked about the sword in
an interview with Asmongold
, making it pretty clear that his statement was tongue in cheek.
At the end of Legion, there's a cinematic and Sargeras as you know stabbed the earth with a sword - and it's been there for quite awhile, and I'm not really sure where things are going with that?
Wait, what sword?
