Where is he?
This NPC is located in a cave called 'Maw of Neltharion', the entrance of which is at 37,32 in the Obsidian Sanctum in Dragonblight. Aside from questlines associated with this area, the Maw of Neltharion is required to create
I beg to differ on this one - This is likely the Neltharion present in the "flashback" vision seen during the Yogg-Saron fight... showing the creation of the Dragon Soul, later known as the Demon Soul. He's even voiced - here's the event here (plus Yoggy's commentary afterwards):
Looks like King Leonidas wearing a robe, IMO =P
THIS! IS! DEATHWING!
The Aspect's Humanoid Forms :
Ysera <The Dreamer : Night Elf Female
Neltharion <The Earthwarder> : Human Male
Malygos <The Spellweaver> : High Elf Male
Even though Alexstrasza(<The Lifebinder>) isn't here, her model is either a High Elf or a Blood Elf
Alextrasza is not a High Elf nor a Blood Elf, last time I checked she was a red draenei with a cool cape and one of the least decent armors in the history of WoW.
sounds like yogg saron is in the background when neltharion is speaking.
Didn't Neltharion turn against the other dragonflights? I mean, isn't that why Onyxia and Nelfarion are hostile to Horde and Alliance?
He(Deathwing) is our next raid boss in WoW:Cataclysm
Cant wait to try the new version.
Deathwing's rise, fall, and impact before Word of Warcraft
lot of lore, this guy, obviously deathwing is also known as
(hello lady prestor/onyxia) is the mysterious "cousin" of the old traitorous
King Aiden Perenolde
of the Alterac Mountains and whose
future family background
proves to not take a turn for the brightest in the least bit, secretly sided with the orcs for power in the 2nd war. while his "cousin" Aiden was saving his own ass from the demonic horde, by selling alliance secrets to the demonic horde, Daval moves to stormwind to do as his future daughter does after him, rise in ranks of the alliance and corrupt the alliance's King which at that time was
(yes arthas' father). Daval Prestor becomes an "advisor" to the king telling him to "expose" of his own cousin Aiden for his double crossing ways, obviously to become the next heir of Alterac. He also steers The Alliance away from the Kirin Tor, presumably to stay away from
(Korialstrasz in disguise) who was in the old Dalaran High Council and was alarmed at Daval's increasing power and the alliances increasing fade of trust in the mages of the kirin tor. Prestor gains King Terenas' trust so much that the king offers his only daughter's hand
Princess Calia Menethil
(presumed dead along with mother Lianne Menethil from the scourge before arthas' corruption of frostmourne though there is
as to the crying girl in the apothecarium but we're here to talk about deathwing) in marriage, obviously the menethil line has a past of being easily corrupted at an early start. Krasus eventually uses the forbbiden spell: Endless Hunger, claiming two of krasus' fingers in the process but revealing the then mysterious Lord Prestor to be none else then Deathwing himself. Upon the destruction of the demon/dragon soul Lord Prestor disappears to
abandoning his claim to Alterac before anything could be done diplomatically. These reprovingly evil family houses still have relatives alive and kicking, some even intractable NPC's currently in-game like King Aiden's son Aliden who sits next to the mysterious Nagaz who is apart of the shadow council. My point therein is to
be expecting these missing family members in cataclysm since
Prestor and Perenolde family member has ties with the demons, old gods, black dragonflight, shadow council, and even scourge(on both sides) which all evidently came from the Alterac Mountains
Alternate ending of the 2nd war/day of the dragon.
I believe it safe to say that had the demon soul had not been destroyed and the battle of grim batol not been won by the "forces of good", Deathwing would have wed Calia menethil, Alterac would have been his, the corruption of king terenas would have proceeded and
Ultimately it would have been Deathwing that became King of the Alliance
YOU ARE NOT PREP-
HAIL TO THE K-
I mean, uh.
This is a lot just humor me it's good stuff
Who: Neltharion the Earth-Warder, aka Deathwing the Destroyer.
What: Colossal, nearly-molten black dragon. Officially a Dragon Aspect, one of five sent to guard ancient Kalimdor by the Titans. He's also the head of the Black Dragonflight.
History: Neltharion was the dragon aspect of the earth and the deep places of Azeroth. Along with his fellow aspects, Alexstrasza, Ysera, Nozdormu, and Malygos, he was created and given power by the Titans so he could watch over Azeroth. At first, he did a good job. But then he discovered the prison of some of the Old Gods of Azeroth, and they began speaking to him. They convinced him that if he destroyed all the other races on Azeroth, he could rule the world with his dragonflight and keep Ysera and Alexstrasza as what would amount to draconian sex slaves.
The Old Gods convinced Neltharion to create an object called the Dragon Soul. With the help of goblins, he forged a great golden disc deep within the earth. Neltharion put part of his own blood and the essence of a demon of the Burning Legion in the disc, and then shielded it magically so the other dragons couldn't see what was inside. He then convinced the four other aspects to donate some of their powers to the Dragon Soul, telling them it would be a great weapon to defeat the Burning Legion.
All the dragonflights headed for the city of Zin-Azshari, where the night elves and the Burning Legion's demons were fighting it out. As promised, Neltharion channeled his power through the Dragon Soul to kill most of the demons. However, it also killed most of the night elves. Then Neltharion turned to the other dragons and essentially said, "By the way, I was the only one who didn't put any of my power in here, so I'm now stronger than you. And you know what would be awesome? Me ruling the world." The other dragons attacked him, but he used the Dragon Soul to kill most of the Blue Dragonflight and paralyze everyone else, except Alexstrasza, who Neltharion kind of had a thing for. Neltharion's appearance changed from a normal dragon into a big fiery demon dragon, and he was reborn as Deathwing the Destroyer.
After this battle, the four other aspects hid themselves, along with their dragonflights. The Dragon Soul (now known as the Demon Soul) was killing Deathwing, so he had the goblins forge him some adamantite armor to keep him from being torn apart. But before he got a chance to use the Demon Soul again, Malfurion Stormrage snuck into Deathwing's lair through the Emerald Dream and stole the Demon Soul. The Demon Soul went on to have many great adventures with Malfurion and Illidan that we're not going to get into here, but after the defeat of the Burning Legion the other four aspects sealed it up and Malfurion hid it so that Deathwing couldn't use it anymore.
Deathwing waited for ten thousand years, causing a lot of earth-related havoc in the meantime. Near the end of the second war (the one with the Horde attacking everything), Deathwing snuck across to Draenor and hid some eggs, which became the Netherwing Flight. After he got back, he discovered the location of the Demon Soul. He decided that if he couldn't use it to destroy the world, then someone ought to. He used a goblin servant to give the artifact to the orcs of Grim Batol, who used it to enslave Alexstrasza and the Red Dragonflight. He then tried to maneuver a human mage, Rhonin, and some of his companions in a complicated plot to get the orcs to move Alexstrasza and her eggs out of Grim Batol. There, he figured, he could capture or kill Alexstrasza and steal some of her eggs to raise as his own. He also posed as Lord Daval Prestor and became King of Alterac, in sort of a secondary plot to destroy the Alliance from within. But in the end, Rhonin destroyed the Demon Soul and Deathwing was sent running from the four other dragon aspects, now returned to their full power.
What he's up to now: While players haven't encountered Deathwing for some time, he's been quite busy. According to Night of the Dragon, Deathwing has been hidden away from the prying eyes of the other Aspects and attempting to create the ultimate Dragonflight with which to conquer (or destroy) Azeroth. His son, Nefarian, was unsuccessful in creating the Chromatic Dragonflight army, thanks to player intervention, but Deathwing has learned from his son's failure. The Netherwing flight of Outland is physiologically different from other drakes, the result of Black Dragonflight eggs being exposed to the twisted energy present on the chaotic planet, and Deathwing has discovered their unique powers. Night of the Dragon sees Deathwing successful in his attempt to fuse Black Dragons with Nether Dragon essences, resulting in the dangerous Twilight Drakes seen in Wyrmrest Temple's Obsidian Sanctum. While players are successful in destroying the clutches of eggs there, as well as their keepers, Sartharion and his drakes, Deathwing has access to other eggs of all of the various flights in Grim Batol. His artificially-created leviathan of a son, Dargonax, was also destroyed, along with his prime consort Sinestra. But Deathwing was never truly defeated, and nor did he ever rest.
Having retreated to the elemental plane of earth, Deepholm, Deathwing planned his full and devastating revenge against not just his fellow Aspects, but the entire planet of Azeroth. Erupting through the ceiling of Deepholm, Deathwing brought about the Great Cataclysm -- forever changing the face of Azeroth and its people. Bringing untold destruction in his wake, he took flight to the Red Dragonflight's former prison, Grim Batol, and began to calculate the true end of all living things on Azeroth -- possibly sparing the Twilight's Hammer Clan, who now serve only him.
Identifying characteristics: Neltharion/Deathwing is a gargantuan black dragon with a molten body, barely held together by the adamantium armor that must constantly be refitted to keep him from melting.
Why you've spent way too many hours fighting him already: Onyxia and Nefarian are the daughter and son, respectively, of Deathwing. Onyxia is posing as a human counselor to the king of Stormwind in hopes of destroying the Alliance. King Varian Wrynn uncovered her plot and slew her. Nefarian was able to enslave the orcs of the Blackrock Clan and set up a stronghold in upper Blackrock Mountain. From there, he tried to kill Ragnaros and then take over the world. The Netherwing Flight in Outlands are also children of Deathwing, being black dragonflight eggs affected by Outland's chaotic energies. And while it may not be obvious due to lack of in-game reference, the Twilight Flight in Northrend's Obsidian Sanctum is in service of Deathwing, being the result of his mixture of Nether Dragon essence with Black Drakes.
Neltharion, the Earth-Warder
The mighty black wyrm chosen by Khaz'goroth and given dominion over the earth and the deep places of the world. He was driven mad by the whisperings of the Old Gods and managed to drive the blue dragonflight to near extinction. He is now known as Deathwing.
You should get a debuff when you go into this vision that makes you talk in gibberish if you try to type anything. Neltharion put a similar curse on
in War of the Ancients to prevent them from revealing his secret to the other dragons before his plan came to fruition.
Lookin' awful pale there, buddy. Wasn't he darker-skinned in the ridiculous cheeseball novel (in which he was actually cool)?
The Dragon Aspects:
