Illidan Novel lore spoilers

Story

So Red Shirt Guy strikes again and gives us juicy spoilers from the new Illidan novel coming soon.

I'm more than half way through Illidan, and am really enjoying it so far. Its definitely the darkest WoW novel, with some scenes on par with Bleeding Sun (the Sunwalker Dezco short story). I won't spoil everything or provide a summary (I still have to do a review for Blizzplanet a little closer to release), but here are a few things:

-The dreadlord homeworld is called Nathreza. It's not the world they were worshipping the void lords on mentioned in Chronicle.

-Worlds that belong to races in the Legion are not destroyed, instead they remain inhabited and intact. Nathreza is full of giant cities and gleaming obsidian towers, all fel-corrupted of course.

-These Legion worlds are among the "areas significantly covered in fel magic" mentioned in Chronicle. If a demon is killed on Nathreza or Argus, etc. they die permanently.

-Illidan's master plan which would have succeeded if a raid group didn't kill him, was to open a portal to Argus and kill Archimonde and Kil'jaeden there.

-It confirms the "only one Legion across all realities" stuff, and explains how that works, and that Archimonde is still alive after Warcraft III.

-Illidan is not portrayed as a hero, the idea being, and outright said by one of the main characters (a demon hunter named Vandel) is basically "Yes, Illidan's a madman, but he's the only one capable of defeating the Burning Legion so that's we follow him."

-The book isn't kind to Maiev. Even Akama says she's no better than Illidan.

-While we were busy questing in Outland, Illidan and his demon hunters committed the single greatest defeat the Legion had suffered "in millenia" by destroying Nathreza using the same portal magic that blew up Draenor.


It does mention that every world that doesn't end up joining the Legion is left a lifeless Mardum or Outland type husk (though not shattered, just lifeless and barren). It's only places like Nathreza and Argus that remain intact strongholds.


His demon hunter army was his trump card. They tore through Nathreza's armies like a blade through tissue paper, with the added benefit of the demons' deaths being permanent.


Sort of. The basic idea is that when Sargeras wants to destroy all of creation, he means all of it, so the Legion is trying to destroy every AU as well, since all of them stem from the MU.


Kael'thas went rogue shortly before BC happened. He went on an exploratory mission to Netherstorm and just vanished.


Illidan had nothing to do with the attack on Shattrath. That was Kael'thas alone, presumably after he had already gone rogue. Maiev tries to ask the Sha'tar and Aldor to help her fight Illidan (specifically Ishanah and A'dal), but they both refuse because they don't see Illidan as their enemy since he's currently fighting the Burning Legion. The Scryers are willing to help Maiev, but she says she'll never take help from/work with blood elves.


Akama's rebellion was part of a really big, really stupid misunderstanding. He thought Illidan served the Burning Legion because he didn't understand that Illidan was lying to Kil'jaeden, and Illidan made sure Akama didn't find out the truth, that they were fighting the Legion, because he was afraid Kil'jaeden might be able to read Akama's mind.

that's why Akama initially contacted Maiev and started planning to overthrow Illidan with her. Apparently he and Maiev work plotting and working on Illidan's demise only a month after he captured the Black Temple


The whole "broken are genuinely loyal to Illidan vs the their souls are bound by the shade of akama" thing is explained.

Akama greatly exaggerated the Soul's power. Illidan honestly intended to give Karabor back to the Broken so they could turn it into a sanctuary of Light, he just needed it as a staging ground for their war against the Legion first. Akama didn't believe him, and given he thought Illidan was a servant of the Burning Legion (he eventually realizes otherwise, but by then its too late), he starts plotting with Maiev.

When Illidan finds out about Akama's duplicity, only then does he create the Shade of Akama, and even then he is the only one effected by it. All of the other broken still serve Illidan willingly. If Akama goes against Illidan, he'll unleash the Shade and it will possess Akama's body. The broken have such a respect for Akama, they'd follow whatever the Shade would tell them to do without question, which is what Akama meant by it enslaving the soul of his people.


Don't worry, Illidan does some very awful stuff too. Two things in particular are so heinous in an "ends justify the means" way that they're what cause Akama to free Maiev and rise up against him despite the threat of the Shade.

Also, the ending is pretty major. I won't spoil it, but it has some important lore that makes me see why the book came out after Chronicle, it wouldn't make sense otherwise without some of the information from it. I'll give you one hint though: Sylvanas isn't Kerrigan.

Last note: I really hope Vandel (one of the point of view characters who I'm pretty sure is meant to be William King's actual character he plays in WoW based on one interview) shows up in game. He's given waaaay too much importance in the plot for it to make sense for him to just never be brought up again.


It does bring up Illidan's fight with Arthas, and how he has a scar from where Frostmourne struck him that feels like some of his soul was taken out with it.

A lot of characters bring up the possibility of Illidan being mad. Illidan himself wonders if that's the truth. There's no answer given.


No. He knows everyone on Outland is as good as dead once the Legion gets there, so they might as well die by being useful in fighting it. As I said, Illidan isn't portrayed (completely) as a misunderstood hero (though he is for a lot of things) he still does awful stuff that he doesn't try and justify beyond "it will help me destroy the Legion."

I meant that Illidan was already doing all that stuff (creating fel orcs, naga in Zangarmarsh, etc) at the time Maiev asked the A'dal and Ishanah for help and they refused.


the ending is going to be really divisive. It's almost as big a change to the status-quo as the void lord stuff from Chronicle. I'm kind of ambivalent on it, I think it's an... interesting direction to go, but I imagine some people will be really angry.


Illidan hates both factions, he just mentions he hates the Alliance a little more because of their refusal to do morally grey things for the greater good. He muses if he tried to explain the alliance and horde that he wasn't their enemy and he was fighting the Legion, he feels the Horde wouldn't believe him, and that the Alliance would believe him, but still try to kill him anyway because he'd "gone too far."


Illidan was going to open a portal directly to Kil'jaeden's throneroom on Argus, and he and all his demon hunters (the exact number of them is never stated, but it is at least in the hundreds if not more) would attack Kil'jaeden and Archimonde (Illidan wasn't sure if Archimonde was on Argus or still regenerating in the nether at the time) at once.

If they survived, the portal Illidan set up to Argus was designed the same way as the Nathreza portal, so it closing would have the same effect.


Illidan when we fought and killed him at the Black Temple was practically on his deathbed and nowhere near his regular strength.


"The enemy of my enemy"

- "You are not prepared"

- Vandel survives and the realisation of being the last Demon Hunter left sinks in, Illidan's spirit tells him to be prepared


MAJOR SPOILERS, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

When Illidan astral projects himself to set up the wards connecting Outland to Argus, he encounters an Elder Naaru. The very same voice which saved him earlier during his initial adventure to Argus

- Elder Naaru is more powerful than any of the Naaru's encountered

- Elder Naaru informs Illidan that his true enemy is the void

- Illidan gets a forehead mark from the Naaru

- Illidan experiences a vision where he is a champion of light against the void(he has a halo!)

"Before Illidan could defend himself in any way, a bolt of pure Light blasted from the Naaru. It struck his empty eye sockets and filled them with a golden glow. Illidan braced himself for a blast of Agony that did not come. In the pastsuch magic had always racked him with pain. It would normally have done the same to any user of fel magics. His vision shimmered and faded, and he found himself looking down on a terrible battlefield.

Amid mountains of corpses, a winged figured battled at the head of the legions of Lights. A golden glow surrounded his warglaives. He cleft demons asunder with mighty blows. The soldiers surrounding him gazed up in awe and wonder at their leader. It took Illidan a moment to realize that this being's features were his own, transformed, his eyes glowing fiercely. This avatar of the Light looked calm and strong and at peace. His face was filled with confidence, shorn of all suffering.

As Illidan watched, the winged figure rose above the battle, defying gigantic entities of darkness, creations of the evil of the Void. A halo played around his head. His body began to glow brighter than the sun, and from his outstretched arms, rays of Light emerged to strike down his foes.

There was a sense of rightness about this, as if he looked upon a vision of the unborn future. For a moment he could not believe in it, but then his doubts rushed back. This could not be true. It was not any path he had ever set out on. It was not who he was. He was a fighter and a killer , as driven by darkness and his own desires as he was by any urge to do right.

"You will defy death," the naaru's voice said as the vision faded. "I have seen this. Whatever you were, whatever you are, a champion of Light is what you will be."

There was utter certainty in the naaru's voice, and it communicated itself to Illidan. For a moment, he felt the Light embrace him, and his heart was at rest. He had been given a vision of redemption beyond any he had hoped for. Peace filled him as he communed silently with the naaru. The moment lasted only a heartbeat, but when it ended, Illidan felt as if it might have been a lifetime.

"You will be a hero," said the naaru. "But there will be a price."

"There always is."

The Scryers are willing to help Maiev, but she says she'll never take help from/work with blood elves.


Would have been a nice treat ... I mean ... bumping into Maiev on Scryer's Tier sipping tea :p
So, essentially:

- We adventurers were really jerks toward Illidan in BC... could Illidan and his demon hunter army really have permanently killed Archimonde and Kil'Jaeden on Argus if we had not killed him first? :o

-Illidan really likes to blow up things (again...) and get things done against the Legion. Potentially, he might be able to blow up any world using that same method of portal magic? (the Spell of Conjuration used on Draenor by Ner'zhul)

-The Nathrezim have probably very low numbers now (near extinction?) because their homeworld is destroyed and the majority of them are permanently dead;

-Prince Kael'thas gets the full blame for the attack on Shattrath (I think I called it in the past) and he went rogue and disappeared in Netherstorm shortly before BC (although probably he was still nominally affiliated with the Illidari at that point). I also guess this is why Illidan didn't share the big source of magical power under the Black Temple with the Blood Elves in order to sate their magical addiction, replacing the Sunwell... because he didn't trust Kael and his agenda enough anymore.

-The comment of Maiev about Blood Elves in general is triggering me >:( but after all she had insulted them once already when Kael and Vashj rescued Illidan from her grasp...
Nice. And i do remember something about the burning legion using invaded worlds as fortresses before the novel. and also the name Nathreza being used Differently by the two autors means that hopefully everything in Chronicle are not as canon as first thought, not likely but just a dream. Plus maiev being maiev is most likely anyway. she do have something against the other elven races: And she is of the old kind of night elves who loved the isolation from the other races so she is not the most multicultural kind of woman anyway.
If I can get over Maiev killing the Highborne, then get over her not accepting the help from the Scryers. It's Maiev being Maiev, nothing more, nothing less.

If I can let go of Garrosh's henchman killing the Highborne, then seriously...it's just you being petty for petty sake

It's Maiev being Maiev


Yeah I know. But now I'm actually happy that the book isn't kind to Maiev. Even Akama says she's no better than Illidan. :)

Also, another bit of lore:

Akama's rebellion was part of a really big, really stupid misunderstanding. He thought Illidan served the Burning Legion because he didn't understand that Illidan was lying to Kil'jaeden, and Illidan made sure Akama didn't find out the truth, that they were fighting the Legion, because he was afraid Kil'jaeden might be able to read Akama's mind.

that's why Akama initially contacted Maiev and started planning to overthrow Illidan with her. Apparently he and Maiev work plotting and working on Illidan's demise only a month after he captured the Black Temple
You take the "insane" part out of Maiev, you no longer have Maiev, as being nuts is what made her character. Malfurion says that she has become vengeance itself and that he could only pray that she didn't cause more harm than Illidan.

It's just Maiev being Maiev. She does want what's best for the Night Elves, and that is an arcane free world, but obviously we can see that she can't have that, but it's what she wants, and like Sylvanas and Azshara, Maiev doesn't like being told "no."
The big problem with what the novel seems to be so far is that, unless Illidan really goes off the deep end in the bits we haven't been told about, this isn't a redemption story, or "Maybe he wasn't so bad afterall", this is "Illidan was the misunderstood genius who would've saved the UNIVERSE but for us".

Yeah, sure, it's not a whitewash. But only because Illidan apparently does bad things along the way to doing what's characterised as the only thing capable of stopping the legion. Such a not-whitewash that people like Akama are suddenly being turned into bad guys because they didn't realise what Illidan was doing, which was, somehow kept hidden for over half a decade (And in the case of TFT's stuff, they seem to have literally decided "Oh, Illidan was playing a double agent again!" Over a decade after release with exactly zero hints that he actually doing!", Everything perfect to defeat the legion.

Unsurprisingly, I'm not very happy about this "redemption", on the grounds that it's a rewriting. A rewriting that's making a character go from "Selfish, arrogant, but not entirely bad" to "You meanies didn't believe him, he was saving the universe and you didn't believe him!" Urge to quit rising.
Well, people were complaining about his story in TBC for ages. Especially that part, where we kill him with no real reason other than "he did bad stuff"...and we get no explanation what that bad stuff is.
So, ironically, this "rewriting" makes story more coherent than it was before.
Maiev went full on Yandere and wants Illidan-senpai for herself.

Yes, Illidan's a madman, but he's the only one capable of defeating the Burning Legion so that's we follow him


Did they ever say why he's "the one"? -_-

I'd say, if anything, it's the opposite.

From the sounds of it, Illidan was so competent that he was in with a good shot at destroying Argus...

So we went from "It makes sense we've attacked Illidan, he was a local menace" to "Yeah, we start attacking the one guy who was able to go from "solo agent" to "nearly destroying the Legion's homeworld" in less than ten years".

Yes, he apparently does some pretty nasty stuff... But unless it's quite literally planning to destroy Outland, it's hard to see just how he can go too far.

All they had to do was make it so that he was capable of attacking legion homeworlds and doing damage. Hell, I don't think many people liked the "Oh yeah, you won't see the Nathrezim homeworld because we destroyed it offscreen lol", so just retconning that to "Illidan was able to attack, cause a bit of damage, but not destroy" would both satisfy the people who wanted to see it, while toning Illidan down a bit, making it so that Attacking him isn't a case of "misunderstood if dodgy universe saving genius", but "Could've been a strong ally, but can't be sure if he's trustworthy and safe enough".

Again, I don't mind an Illidan redemption. What I do mind is making it so that everyone else was pretty much the bad guy.
I am perfectly fine not being the absolute good guy and the absolute centre of the story for once....

But that´s what best about it. Suddenly, our characters, who are those brave heroes, who not think about anything and just rush to kill the bad guy, actually killed the good guy (sort of). This is not case of raids, but in many dungeons, we just kill people who are our enemies, not people, who are bad. And it is great that at least once, we are confronted with our stupidity on larger level than in small quest chains.
And Illidan is great example of this. Now we know it was Kael, who ordered attack on Shattrath, so his only act of aggression is gone. Yet, we attacked him because of misunderstanding and killed someone, who had great chance to extremely weaken, if not obliterate whole Burning Legion.
I love how we can see that not everything we do is the best and sometimes, our rush to defeat forces of evil can lead to actually strengthening them.

WoW... she didn't even insulted belves, but Sorc is offended. Besides make up your mind, either "we're pricks" for attacking Illidan - or not. So you wanted for belves to assault Illidan? x'D

So Keal'Thas can call Illy "half-elf mongrel", orcs can be repeatedly called "monsters/filth", etc, etc. But God forbid ever talking badly about blood elves! They're the holy cows in game.

I didn't felt sorry for him, just like I don't feel sorry for exaggerated characters.
If Akama is reedemed for "misunderstandng" then why not players?Since it's Akama who helped the players to get to Illy.

And seriously players got much bigger crimes on their accounts, that were not justiied at all.

If this book was released shortly after TBC, I think you'd be right (Okay, assuming it was hinted at a little better)

The problem is though, it's so much later that it comes off more as "We're not allowed to have Illidan be the bad guy", instead making everyone else the bad guys.

That, and "Illidan was capable of destroying the Burning Legion" is something pretty damn massive to hide from us. Again, combined with this being a book released 9 years after TBC launched, it feels more like they've retroactively decided that Illidan must be a hero, rather than an organic story development.

Also, from what IGoD says, Shattrath's decision to attack Illidan wasn't discussed. Even to the point where, earlier they pretty much were sure Illidan didn't do anything wrong. Again, this is part of the issue- it seems to be putting across viewpoints that couldn't be gleaned from TBC, and, if anything, appear counter to those in TFT.

The book apparently doesn't even seem to explain why we/Shattrath (and not just Akama) attacked Illidan. Hell, Apparently it doesn't even really explain very well why Maiev wants Illidan dead (The first time we get to see more than a few pages of her PoV, and it hardly explains her motives, when there are so many reasons and potential reasons that people want discussed for her to do what she does? What an utter waste waste)

From the spoilers, I can't help but feel as if that's because Blizzard themselves don't seem to have any reasons to attack him, because they were too busy making Illidan not bad to try to reconcile Illidan's new story with TBC. Because having reasons to make Illidan a reasonable, if somewhat misguided target is, apparently bad. We have to be entirely misguided to attack him.

If you like, a twist this big has to be telegraphed, and come relatively soon after the story we're seeing "twisted". Only very small parts were hinted, and the twist itself is both very late and very massive. When you twist like that so late, so big, and so unexpectedly, it's not a twist- it's either a retcon, or only not a retcon because technically, you were elaborating, just not in anything close to the spirit of the original.

why Maiev wants Illidan dead

Hasn't that been kinda apparent from the start even if the novel doesn't really delve into it? Originally Maiev wanted to imprison Illidan when Tyrande freed him but that quickly turned into a revenge when she was only one to escape from the Tomb of Sargeras forced to leave her companions behind.

IGoD notes that the book doesn't really discuss why she's obsessed, with neither the shadow orb or Naisha (The two most commonly suggested reasons) coming up. That the former doesn't get a mention is particularly odd, given that Jarod suggests that something must've been affecting her (Almost certainly the shadow orb, even more certainly by analogy with Cordana), and I think that out of all the quotes people remember from the Illidan fight, "That is for Naisha" has got to be relatively high up in the list (That, and it'd probably allow people to stop asking if they're a couple or not), so really, she should've been mentioned, even just in passing (given, you know, that she was her lieutenant until recently)

This could just about be okay, but then we apparently have Maiev wanting to kill the player characters for stealing her kill, even though she gets the killing blow on Illidan. Making her even more psychotic, without even explaining why she was just "normally" crazy in the original versions of TBC.

This is another thing that really bugs me about what I've heard from the book- By the looks of it, Maiev's been written as if she's meant to be an unsympathetic character, who's crazy enough to want Illidan dead badly enough to be angry that other people helped kill him. And yet, she makes sure he doesn't properly die, and is even willing to release him demon hunters and work on our side? There's probably an explanation for it, but even then it seems disjointed within the realms of a single book, let alone with Legion.

At least the latter could (maybe?) be explained by having those parts written when Maiev was meant to be crazy, but then it seems as though Cordana took the fall for her- which would mean that someone forgot to tell King that, given how long he's had to correct it if the Cordana/Maiev swap was a thing.
I always knew Illidan was not a bad guy!
I knew he had some plan, some kind of reason for his actions.
