World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade - Deathwing - Dead or Alive?

Deathwing’s whereabouts after the Second War are unknown. His offsprings: Onyxia and Blackwing took care of alienating the Human nations and do not know where their father is.

Onyxia posed as Lady Katrana Prestor manipulating Stormwind. All those low-level quests slowly reveal that Stormwind has declined military support to Westfall, Duskwood and Lakeshire, leaving them to fend for themselves desperately.

Blackwing on the other hand brewing the chromatic dragonflight.

But where is Deathwing? Is he alive? Is he dead?

Deathing has been thought dead twice before the events of Day of the Dragon, according to Krasus.

Krasus trying to convince the Kirin Tor Council that Deathwing was back:

Krasus: “I believe Deathwing is on the move again”.

This startled the rest, the elder woman included. Night suddenly changed into days, but the wizards ignored what, for them, was a common thing in this chamber.

“Deathwing is dead!” the third declared. “He plunged into the sea months ago after this very council and a gathering of our strongest struck the mortal blow! No dragon, even him, could withstand such might!”

Krasus: “And where was the corpse? Deathwing was like no other dragon. Even before the goblins sealed the adamantium plates to his scaly hide, he offered a threat with the potential to dwarf that of the Horde …”—Warcraft: Day of the Dragon – page 3.

Deathing has been thought dead twice before the events of Day of the Dragon, according to Krasus.

Krasus convincing Malygos that Deathwing was not dead, asking Malygos assistance to rescue Alexstrasza:

Krasus: Lord Prestor. This man, this mortal, would be the new king of Alterac, Malygos. Do yo not find anything familar about him? You, especially?”

The icy creature moved closer, peering at the rotating image of the false noble. Malygos inspected Prestor carefully, cautiously … and with growing horror.

Malygos: This is no man! You know very well! It is Deathwing!”

Krasus: “Deathwing, yes. Deathwing, who has been twice thought dead.—Warcraft: Day of the Dragon – Page 151.

But … is Deathwing dead after the Dragon Aspects chased him at the end of Day of the Dragon? No. Deathwing escaped. Deathwing is alive, as read in the last page of the novel.

No one had sighted Deathwing, since the black beast’s desperate escape. With the others constantly on watch for him now, it seemed unlikely that he would cause much terror for some time to come. If ever. Yet, because of him, the others had taken a renewed interest in life and the future.”

The above-quote is from the last page of Warcraft: Day of the Dragon. Which means Deathwing escaped from the Dragon Aspects, possibly with some of the red dragon eggs.

There are four possible places Deathwing might be hiding at:

1. Gilneas

2. Mount Kajaro (Isle of Kezan – Undermine)

3. Outland

4. Grim Batol

GILNEAS

After the Alliance was formed to combat the Horde menace, Lord Genn Greymane refused to join the Alliance. However, Lord Genn Greymane joined the Alliance during the Second War, out of necessity, when Orgrim Doomhammer’s Blackrock Clan seized Zul’Dare Isle (property of Gilneas) and adjacent locations. Greymane sought protection by the Alliance. Yet did not support the Alliance with military presence during the Second War.

It was Lord Genn Greymane who presented Lord Prestor of Alterac to the Alliance. This noble man wearing black armor was “supposedly” one of the refugees from Alterac and rightful heir to the Alterac throne after Lord Perenolde was deposed for treason.

Unbeknown to most, but Krasus, this charming man Lord Prestor wasn’t other but Deathwing, thought dead after Kul’Tiras took him down. Deathwing had charmed the leaders of the Alliance nations magically offering political deals to gain the throne of Alterac kingdom. With a finger snap King Terenas would be frozen still standing in place while talking to Prestor. Pawns they were.

Since it was Genn Greymane who introduced Prestor to the Alliance, it is not hard to guess that Deathwing had manipulated him first. Mysteriously, Genn Greymane abandoned the Alliance at the end of the Second War. He was against paying tax to maintain the Orc internment camps: Durnholde, Dalaran internment camp, Hammerfall, and other four.
