Water, is Life ...

#1 » Post by Eronox » 15 Aug 2017 12:31







Queen Azshara was the most powerful being on Azeroth. Her power only rival to Archimonde or Kil'Jaeden themselves. And yet, as the Well of Eternity began to flood the Azshari palace, Queen Azshara's powerful spell was of no use to hold the vehement waters back. The end was coming, she would not make it out alive.

Voices invaded her mind, whispers and murmurs that clouded her every thought. It was not Sargeras, nor any agent of the Legion -- it was something else, something she had never encountered before.


"Surrender. Surrender to the waters..."

The whispers bombarded unrelenting until a bargain struck and a spell lifted. The waters overtook claiming all - but not in death. Grotesque naga - hideous, vile, fearsome serpentine creatures - befitting of the palace, replaced its inhabitants.

Banished for over ten thousand years, the naga remained hidden.
Until they heard the call of the Betrayer . . .



Pre-Patch Notes
Based on internal testing, these changes have been made specifically for PrimalWoW in regards to class balance. These changes may be different than other 3.3.5 WotLK realms. Please do note that the changes are only true for the PvE scenario.

We plan to make changes based on player feedback over the course of the Burning Crusade progression. If you have information worth sharing, please make a post in the Suggestion or PTR sections of the forum.

These changes below are live within the next upcoming days.

Actually, this was my writing:
The Rise of the Naga

Queen Azshara was the most powerful living being on Azeroth. Her power was only rival to maybe Archimonde or Kil'Jaeden themselves. Mannoroth once lost his patience and dared to strike her, she merely laughed and said she'd forgive him for that misbehavior.

During the events that led to the sundering, as the waters of the Well of Eternity flooded the Azshari palace, Queen Azshara started to channel a powerful spell meant to hold the waters back. But not even her, her santity, the light of the lights, Queen Azshara herself could hold the might of the tides that claimed most of her highborne. She knew the end was coming, she knew she would not make it out alive.

Voices started to invade her mind, to whisper her things, troubling her thoughts. She knew it was not Sargeras, it was not any agent of the Legion -- it was something else, something she had never seen or heard before. They told her of the fate that was to come, they told her the only thing she could do was to surrender to the waters.

The voices in her mind offered her a bargain that she gladly took. Upon the face of inevitable demise, Queen Azshara stopped her spell. The waters that flooded the palace invaded their room rapidly and claimed them all - but they did not die.

In the stead, her handmaidens, her Highborne, were turned into the grotesque naga - hideous and fearsome serpentine creatures that much reflected their own vile personalities.

Banished to the depths, the naga remained hidden for over ten thousand years until they heard the call of the betrayer, Illidan Stormrage, who summoned them forth in hopes of breaching the Tomb of Sargeras and taking the power of his relics.
But it was deemed too long.

I've had to purge irrelevant comments. Please discuss the actual announcement and its contents. Add suggestions, evaluation about what has been done.

If you want to discuss something else, please create a new thread for that in an appropriate subforum.

Everybody knows that the best way to describe the ocean to a blind man is to push him in
