Legion Theory – Dreadlord/Lich Queen Sylvanas?




So, the leaked broadcast files (You can read the full files here – icy veins spoilers) from Legion imply, at least to me, that Sylvannas may be the hidden evil character, rather than Jaina, and it makes more sense-


The alliance version doesn’t really point to Jaina at all –

Varimathras (Alliance)
Varimathras: So, your Alliance still endures. Longer than I expected, though she has already planted the seeds of its downfall. She is patient, that one – could be Jaina, could be Sylvanas.
Varimathras: When your thrones run red with betrayal… when your holy places burn and the shattered mask hangs above your hearth… only then you will know. And it will be too late.
Varimathras: It matters not. You are blind to the true darkness closing in around you.”


Varimathras (Horde)
Varimathras: So, she found me at last. Sent her underlings to finish the job.
Varimathras: Tell me, when she seized your throne of hides and bones (Sylvanas is now war chief) , was your allegiance forced? No… I’d wager you surrendered it willingly… or were convinced you did.
Varimathras: It matters not. You are blind to the darkness in your midst – Sylvanas?.”


This also links in to the whole theory of the scourge becoming a big force to be reckoned with after we’ve dealt with the Legion, the four Horseman are back thanks to all you Death Knights (awesome quest line btw), and the Lich King must have a long term goal in mind after the Legion is defeated. What will the horseman do after the Burning Legion is defeated? Go back from whence they came? I think not. The Lich King now has them firmly under his control, they are his servants to lead the scourge to do whatever his bidding may be. The scourge is stronger, more focused and organised than ever, thanks DK’s.



It has been spoken about here –

What comes next – scourge


Lich King




Then of course there’s the whole Jaina is actually Queen Aszhara theory, or that she is a death knight…. 😉

  1. Aye, I don’t think Jaina is alone in being a protagonist next expansion either, if she even is. It could very well be that she’s one of the reasons, along with Sylvanas, the Alliance and Horde cold war continues after the threat of the Burning Legion has finally ended, or that it actually erupts into a full on conflict for once. War does crazy things to normal people, and I would like it more than Dreadlord/ Old God corruption or influence, which feels almost Star Trek transporters in the way that ‘twist’ is fell back on.
    I’m interested to see if the trolls will any weigh on this; the Loa seem indirectly responsible for putting Sylvanas on the throne, and they definitely have some connections to powerful deities with Old God style powers, but not alligned with them, and possibly even against them.

  2. If indeed Sylvanas is going to be a protagonist i’d imagine the loa and trolls will have some sort of appearrance too as they put her on the horde throne.

    As for the old Gods, the files do suggest they will be here in the next expac, mainly N’zoth and the potential naga expac and the out there theory that Jaina is actually Queen Azshara. Which i really hope isn’t true: underwater zone: Ew no!

    i also like the idea of the scourge being a big thing in the next expac, and that does make sense, unless they are responsible for the kul’tiras island being found giving us the naga.

    I can’t wait until blizzcon so find out!
