Patch 7.3: Alleria Reunion and Void Cutscene (Spoilers)

In this Patch 7.3 Preview, we’ll cover another in-game cutscene, this time involving Alleria and the Void, as well as a video preview of Alleria reuniting with old friends on Argus.

The brief cutscene takes place at 13:38 during our second video of Mac’Aree questing. In the quest The Seat of the Triumvirate, Alleria returns from a scouting mission and reports to Velen about the Void in Mac’Aree.

As you continue to quest through Mac’Aree (detailed post here), you follow Alleria’s training with the Void with her teacher, Locus-Walker. Some notable dialogue includes:

Alleria What are you talking about?
Locus-Walker Why your mate of course. How does he feel about your choices?
Alleria Turalyon trusts me to make hard decisions, and I him.
Locus-Walker I am not talking about trust.
Locus-Walker How can you expect to embrace the Shadow with the Light shining so brightly at your side?
Alleria Without the Light there is no Shadow teacher.

Locus-Walker The heart of a demigod. This is no mere token, Alleria.
Locus-Walker Take it, and you will be one step closer to your destiny.
Alleria I understand. Thank you. Both of you.
Locus-Walker How do you feel?
Alleria My head is… swimming.
Locus-Walker Remember… So long as your mind is your own, you command this power. It does not command you.
Alleria How did you do it by yourself?
Locus-Walker Ah, well. Perhaps I will tell you one day.
Locus-Walker Until then, I will be keeping an eye on your progress.

Alleria You should return to the Vindicaar and share what we have learned.
Alleria My path takes me into the Seat of the Triumvirate… to whatever fate awaits me there.
Alleria I am certain Velen will understand.

Here is the void model of Alleria which she uses during the L’ura encounter in Seat of the Triumvirate:

Khadgar, Alleria, and Turalyon are also reunited in Patch 7.3. This is what happens when you click on the “Stay a while and listen.” option from Khadgar.

Archmage Khadgar: It is good to see you again, my friends. When I couldn’t find you after the devastation of Draenor, I wasn’t sure what to think.
High Exarch Turalyon: We feared for you as well, Khadgar. But I think part of me knew it would take more than the explosion of a planet to slow you down.
Alleria Windrunner: Kurdran and Danath are safe as well?
Archmage Khadgar: Indeed, though I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like. When this is all behind us, perhaps the Sons of Lothar should share a reunion feast!
High Exarch Turalyon: I agree. It’s been a long time, but as I recall it was your turn to buy the drinks Khadgar.
Archmage Khadgar: Well, I don’t know about that…
Alleria Windrunner: Definitely your turn. Never question an elf’s memory… even after a thousand years.

Alleria also learns about Sylvanas:

Arator the Redeemer: No doubt my mother will soon ask about Sylvanas. What are you going to tell her?
Vereesa Windrunner: It is a conversation I know we must have, but the thought of it fills me with dread. How can I explain to Alleria what our sister has become? The truth will break her heart.

Alleria Windrunner: I must know, Vereesa. What fate befell our sister?
Vereesa Windrunner: Give me a moment. I will do my best to explain…
Alleria Windrunner: Impossible! I refuse to believe she now leads the Horde. Not after all they did to our people during the war.
Vereesa Windrunner: There is more. I… I am not sure how to explain the rest. Or if this is even the time or place to-
Alleria Windrunner: Sisters are complicated. Especially the undead ones.
Vereesa Windrunner: Perhaps we had best discuss the matter in private. Come, sister.

The Valley of Heroes in Stormwind City pays tribute to those who made the sacrifice to close the Dark Portal with a series of monuments.
