The Future of Dragonkin Lore: What to Expect from the Black Dragonflight in Future World of Warcraft Expansions
The Black Dragonflight has been a staple of World of Warcraft since its inception. They have played significant roles in the game’s lore, from the corruption of Deathwing to the rise of Nefarian and his experiments. However, as the game continues to evolve and Blizzard releases new expansions, players begin to ask: What will be the future of Black Dragonflight and its lore?
First and foremost, it’s important to understand the Black Dragonflight’s history and where they currently stand in Azeroth. Khaz’goroth, the titan, created the Black Dragonflight to serve as guardians of the Earth. Their leader, Neltharion, created the powerful artifact known as the Dragon Soul, but the Old Gods eventually corrupted him and became known as Deathwing.
After the events of the Cataclysm expansion, Deathwing was defeated, and the remaining Black Dragons scattered across Azeroth. Some were hunted down and killed, while others went into hiding. Wrathion, the last Black Dragon, seeks to bring order to Azeroth’s chaos and meets the player.
So, what can we expect from the Black Dragonflight in future expansions?
The Revenge of Deathwing’s Children
Despite the defeat of their father, it’s possible that some of Deathwing’s children will seek revenge on Azeroth. New quests and storylines could emerge, focusing on the remaining Black Dragons and their plans for the future.
The Rise of a New Black Dragonflight Leader
One of the major storylines of Dragonflight is who will become the new leader of the Black Dragons. A powerful and charismatic Black Dragon or an outsider seeking to control them may emerge. We have seen at least two contenders in the running for who will lead them.
The Discovery of New Black Dragonflight Secrets
The Black Dragonflight guards the earth, with undiscovered secrets surrounding their role and history. This could lead to new quests and storylines that delve into the lore of the Black Dragonflight and shed light on their responsibilities as protectors of Azeroth.
Overall, the future of the Black Dragonflight in World of Warcraft is uncertain, but there are many possibilities for new storylines and quests. Whether they return as a powerful force or fade into obscurity, the Black Dragonflight will always be an important part of Azeroth’s history and lore.
