Not a week goes by without WoW news about the story of Sylvanas, Anduin and Co. In the last chapter of WoW: Shadowlands, we follow the dungeon master to Zereth Mortis. This mysterious area is the workshop of the First Ones and also the cradle of creation.

In the Mausoleum of the First, the new raid for the raid enthusiasts among you, Zovaal hopes to find the final key to the greatest secret of the First. If he succeeds, he will be able to destroy the entire creation and create a new cosmos in which he will rule over all cosmic powers. The fate of the entire universe is now in the hands of our heroes. To stop the jailer, we need the help of Sylvanas, his former ally....

Attention, from now on it's about powerful spoilers for patch 9.2 of WoW (buy now )!

"After her defeat in the Sanctum of Domination, the Banshee Queen slumbers restlessly. Small reminder:

the dungeon master took out Jaina, Bolvar, and Thrall in Oribos, so they didn't hear about Sylvanas' rebellion against Zovaal. The fact that the Banshee got back her lost Soul Shard also escaped the trio. While Sylvanas lies unconscious on her bed, Uther Lightbringer grabs her hand. He suspects that the banshee queen is currently undergoing martyrdom. In the following cutscene we see how torn Sylvanas' soul is.Recommended Editorial ContentAtthis point you will find external content from [PLATTFORM].

We are surprised at how calmly and patiently the other protagonists wait for Sylvanas' metamorphosis. The scene in Sylvanas' cell is in stark contrast to the end of Mists of Pandaria, when the Alliance and Horde were arguing over what fate Garrosh Hellscream deserved.

Remember. There was a huge crash in the Warchief's dungeon! Thrall was about to bring Garrosh to a bad end, while Jaina Splendor Sea spoke smugly to Varian Wrynn, trying to persuade him to wipe out all the Horde leaders on the spot. There was so much tension in the air. Yes, those were the days when Blizzard still knew story craft!

The Banshee Queen is dead, long live Sylvanas!

So there are two versions of Sylvanas - the brave Ranger Generals of Silvermoon and the sinister Banshee Queen. We see both of them on the cover of the book Sylvanas, which is scheduled for release in early 2022. The good part of Sylvanas' soul has apparently not yet realized her death. At the memory of the fire of Teldrassil, both soul parts come into conflict.

This scene is reminiscent of the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So the banshee queen was not the complete Sylvanas, but only a mischievous version of her. This sudden turn of events seems strange. In the past, her former companions reported that Sylvanas was a ruthless leader even when she was alive. Perhaps both souls are meant to portray a stark contrast and Sylvanas must find a middle ground to reunite both sides of herself.

The Metamorphosis

To complete her metamorphosis, Sylvanas must overcome her past and accept her evil self. Only then can she become a new Sylvanas. In keeping with Sylvanas' mental odyssey, there is a new model in the game. At the end of the first story chapter of Zereth Mortis, Sylvanas gets a new robe and a bow. This is the armor and bow she once wore as a Ranger General of Silvermoon.

Sylvanas' new look strongly resembles the armor from the animated short film Warbringer: Sylvanas.

Sylvanas' memories of Arthas

In another cutscene discovered by WoWHead's dataminers, Sylvanas recalls her rebellion against Arthas

.

This memory is symbolic of her break with the dungeon master. This important scene takes place in the Bastion, which suggests that Uther and the Kyrians succeed in purifying Sylvanas' soul. In the course of the ritual, we get a rare glimpse into her mind.

I don't remember the exact moment I wrested control.
I do remember the rush of freedom. The clarity of purpose.
When I loosed my arrow, I sought to become his judge and his executioner.
I thought that if I could punish him for his crimes, I would be absolved of mine.
Forgiven for the atrocities he forced me to commit against my own people.
But there would be no justice that day.
For anyone.
That...is yet to come.
