The last four World of Warcraft expansions have either centred on or continued to expand the Night Elf narrative, and Dragonflight seems to hint to a huge development for their future home. The destruction of Tel’drassil forever altered the topography of Azeroth, as the Battle for Azeroth and the Fourth War displaced the Forsaken and Kaldorei due to Sylvanas Windrunner’s harsh acts. While the Forsaken have gradually reestablished some kind of normality under the leadership of Lillian Voss and the rest of the Desolate Council, the Night Elves have been stuck in limbo since that fatal incident.
When The Dragon Isles decided to exchange Malfurion Stormrage’s life in order to bring Ysera back from the Shadowlands, the Kaldorei narrative went in a path that not all World of Warcraft players were instantly pleased with. While the game’s narrative director suggested that this transaction was only temporary, many night elf fans were disappointed that Azeroth’s legendary druid was taken out of service at a moment when his people needed him the most. With Ysera’s return, the Kaldorei needed a victory to even things up, and it seems that Blizzard Entertainment had something special in mind.
A scene featuring Tyrande Whisperwind and Ysera standing on the western edge of the Ohn’ahran Plains and staring out to sea may be seen by players who finish the Valdrakken Accord faction up to Renown Level 19. During the Dragonflight beta, this exact area of the Dragon Isles zone in World of Warcraft was linked to various encrypted files, and many players speculated that it would be the location of the next World Tree to replace Tel’drassil. The conversation between Ysera and Tyrande seems to establish that the world seed supplied by the Winter Queen in Shadowlands will blossom off the beaches of the Ohn’ahran Plains.
it’s growing from wow
It’s probable that the introduction of a new World Tree will play a significant role in the next updates given that Blizzard released an optimistic plan for World of Warcraft in 2023. While the prospects of it being a playable zone in 10.1 or 10.2 are remote, World of Warcraft players can expect to witness the new World Tree bloom throughout the expansion.
A major Cataclysm-level revamp for the ancient world may be in the works, despite the disbelief of many fans, depending on the direction that Dragonflight’s tale goes. Dragonflight has often been heralded as the start of a new era in the Warcraft tale, and there may be no better way to set the tone for future expansions than to finally make the new player experience narratively consistent.
