whose MANS IS THIS?????
onyxia is funny as hell because someone walked up to her and accused her of being a black dragon secretly meddling in the affairs of the human government, objectively a pretty insane thing to accuse anyone of, and instead of denying it she was like yep! turned into a black dragon and tried to fight them
also for receiving the instructions “please keep stormwind from going into the burning steppes” and instead of like. just magically convincing people not to do that she was like “so you want me to infiltrate the human court pretending to be a noble but using my dad’s Dragon Impersonating a Noble Name, engineer a conflict between the stonemasons and the nobles resulting in riots resulting in the death of the queen so I can manipulate the king into doing whatever until I kidnap him so I can just rule through anduin but also magically split varian in half so the fighty side isn’t there” and didn’t wait for an answer
Darion says something like “death has a way of cleansing the mind of madness” which makes me wonder what the Fuck was up with Nefarian.
Nefarian just built different I guess
*insert convenient excuse about Old God corruption*
They literally inserted a convenient old god excuse in BfA. He was raised by Twilight Cultists so it was some kind of spoopy shadow undeath instead of… idk normal anti-old god undeath.
Hes a frankenstein monster raised with electricity. its not just a convenient excuse: he very literally wasn’t raised with necromancy.
During the 15th Anniversary event we revisited raids from previous expansions, the Blackwing Descent Nefarian encounter was one of them. Before you enter the fight Chromie says:
“Nefarian, son of Deathwing, was raised from death by twilight cultists in the heart of Blackrock Mountain. Intrepid heroes such as you braved the black dragon’s sanctum to put an end to his schemes once and for all.”
Before then we didn’t have an exact explanation as to what his deal was or how he had been revived.
Anyway, heres this.
Deathwing from World of Warcraft
I still really like the idea that Wrathion is an Aspect but he just doesn’t know. The adventurer asks why his eyes glow and he responds, “well I’m a dragon,” and the adventurer turns to Ebonhorn, who doesn’t have glowing eyes, and back to Wrathion.
So many people have inquired about a Lil Onyxia Amigurumi ever since I made the very first round of Dragon Aspects, and here she finally is!! To clarify: this lovely lady already has a home, but she can be remade in the future :)
Onyxia is deceptively detailed. If you have her mount in WoW, or feel like popping over to her Raid, I suggest giving her a really close look - shes got so many spikes, web details, markings and even her coloring isnt what your brain first tells you (I know a lot of people see her as dominantly Purple - she is not!), I really suggest taking the time to appreciate this evil little lady.
I gave her as many spikes/webbing as I could emotionally handle while still keeping the “whelpling” feel, and even felted on some markings to her feet/paws to help her colors pop a little more. She’s quite impressive and Im very pleased with the outcome!
Which Warcraft Dragon should be next in line?
