War Campaign Cinematic Finale - Saurfang and Sylvanas (Spoilers)
The War Campaign comes to a thrilling conclusion as Saurfang and Sylvanas, representing different parts of the Horde, clash outside the gates of Orgrimmar. Spoilers.
In this cinematic, Saurfang challenges Sylvanas to Mak'gora, a duel of honor to the death. While Saurfang knows he will lose, he symbolically wants to fight Sylvanas in front of the crowds of Orgrimmar. Armed with the weapons of Anduin and Thrall, both weapons with long legacies, Saurfang makes a brave stand against Sylvanas but can barely get a hit in. Sylvanas, in contrast, uses a curved melee blade (Xal'atath?) to instantly wound Saurfang with shadowy slashes.
It's an interesting fight--both are seasoned veterans with iconic styles of combat--Saurfang using his axe to whirlwind, and Sylvanas using ranged attacks and arrows. But here they fight a more symbolic battle of Light vs Shadow. (You're an Orc, Saurfang! Use that Axe for +5 skill, not Anduin's sword!)
When Saurfang finally gets in a hit on Sylvanas, she reveals her true feelings--that the Horde are nothing--and destroys Saurfang in a cloud of purple smoke, before flying away.
While Sylvanas has escaped, the Alliance and Horde end up more unified than before, as even Sylvanas' loyalists who believed her to be fighting for the Horde now hear from her directly that they do not matter.
The War Campaign may have concluded, but the mystery surrounding Sylvanas in Battle for Azeroth remains, as it remains unclear whose side she is on, and if she keeps being thwarted--or staying two steps ahead of us and winning.
