SPOILER ALERT: MMO-Champion has datamined the final cinematic of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, showing the fate of Azeroth, the dragon aspects, and more. If you do not want to be spoiled on the video that plays once the Madness of Deathwing encounter is defeated, do not hit the jump for the video.
Again: spoiler alert! The video after the jump contains spoilers for the ending of Cataclysm.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's go over the biggest developments after the fall of Deathwing. Aggra is pregnant, the dragon aspects have lost all of their powers, and Azeroth has entered a new age where the outcome of the world will be tied to the history of mortals. What better way to bring the war back into Warcraft than to remove the huge neutral roadblock that are the dragon aspects?
I love the ending to Cataclysm because it cements what this has all been about -- wrapping up the dragon story in Warcraft. The aspects are now mortal, Deathwing has been destroyed, and the elements are at peace again. What great beings will stand between the Horde and the Alliance now? Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Review the official patch notes, and then dig into what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!
