Queen Azshara Go Boom

Queen Azshara Go Boom

This post is (9/31) of the Blaugust 2019 event! You can find out more about Blaugust over at Belghast’s blog. I (Chestnut) created a Twitter list of all participants. UltrViolet created an OPML file of all the bloggers to import into your feed reader.

It’s taken us some time due to the fact it was summer, and people have lives, but Iron Circle finally downed Azshara on normal! We’ve been close for a couple raid nights, but just didn’t have the people to get her through. Now that she’s down, though, we’re focusing efforts back on pushing heroic.

The cutscene you get after defeating Azshara actually made me squee a little bit. Azshara and the old gods are some of my favorite Warcraft lore, and it’s felt like a long, slow, slog to even get to this point of the story since Battle for Azeroth started. Now that it’s here, I’m excited. I just hope Blizz keeps up with it, otherwise I’m going to lose my interest very fast once again. (Cutscene has spoilers!)

  1. Congrats on taking out Azshara and wishing you guys the best of luck on harder raid modes!

    Also, given that the chances of me getting back into the raid scene in WoW are slim to none, I let myself watch that cutscene, and I think this may be the first time in a while that I’m actually excited about a WoW plot development. Needs more on the old gods, Blizzard! Please give your players more of this!

    1. Right? I wish we’d done more with the old gods sooner. We’ve had hints in other expansions outside classic, and we knew they were coming in this one, I just wish it had started sooner.

      1. Nice work! I’m not raiding or even close, so it’s getting harder to follow the plot development sequentially, but being Horde I’m very interested in what’s going to happen with Sylvanas.

        Do you think they are setting up the next expansion to be old gods all the way down? Or is it going to end here in BfA?

        1. Oh gosh, I don’t even know. I kind of hope the old gods are around for a while. They deserve some serious screen time with all the behind-the-scenes work they’ve done since we first saw C’Thun in AQ40. With them just now showing up, I would hope the next expac features them heavily, even if only for the start. But I worry that if they go out with BfA, it could feel rushed.

          I’m also interested in what’s going to happen with Sylvanas. I assume it won’t be much better for her than it was for Garrosh.

  2. GRATS!!! That is super exciting 🙂 I am sure you guys will breeze through heroics…most of the bosses we have done so far aren’t really that much harder on the mechanics front 🙂

    1. Thanks! We’ve pretty much the first two on farm after maybe 3 runs through, and just downed Essence for the first time last night, so seems like we’ll be good to continue at a similar pace once the raid leader is back from a work trip. 🙂
