Lore: Admiral Westwind & Echoes From Warcraft III

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

Once upon a time, a brave adventurer (you)  broke into the Scarlet Monastery to defeat the Scarlet Crusade champion: Herod. Many a statue of lost members of the Scarlet Crusade could be seen in that chamber. One such as the statue shown to the left. Looking over the plate at the bottom of the statue could be read: Admiral Barean Westwind, Grand Admiral of the Scarlet Fleet. Citizen of Kul’Tiras. Lost off the Frozen Coast of Northrend.

Fast forward, 40 levels later, the Ebon Blade will send you to do a dirty job, the strawberry shortcake Argent Crusade is unable to do for lack of malice and determination.  You gotta get into the Onslaught Crusade cathedral on the isle southwest of Icecrown Glacier to interrogate and kill Archbishop Landgren—yea that guy who you found earlier in Dragonblight at the side of High General Brigitte Abbendis.  You torture Archbishop Landgren until he spills the beans of who is the true leader of the Onslaught Crusade … Grand Admiral Westwind.  But is he truly its leader?

After the break is a video and a spoily transcript of the epic-drooling event … a shocking truth that will shake a lot of lore fans, and if you aren’t fond of spoilers you shouldn’t watch the video.  Someone from Warcraft III makes a return, and with this return … the augur of a new expansion pack?
