Kalecgos is one of the few surviving blue dragons, a former servant of the great Aspect Malygos, and the current aspect of magic and ruler of the Blue dragonflight. He disguises himself as a half-elf, calling himself Kalec. Due to the blues being most in tune with magic of all the aspects, Kalec has the powers of a sorcerer and the strength of a warrior.

After the Nexus War, Kalecgos seems to have become some kind of an advisor to the Wyrmrest Accord. Him being a blue dragon, that is a unique trait given the rest of the dragonflights were at war with the blue flight. Kalecgos was a youngster of the blue flight, sent as an investigator by Malygos to Quel'Thalas to locate what appeared to be residual energies from the Sunwell, believed to have been destroyed by the Scourge some time before. What he found - after being severely injured by the dwarven dragon hunter Harkyn Grymstone and his band - was a strange young human named Anveena Teague, who lived with her parents outside Tarren Mill. As they evaded Harkyn's band of hunters as well as the occasional agent of the Scourge, Kalec and Anveena teamed up with Kalec's intended, Tyrygosa, and the human paladin Jorad Mace. While in Tarren Mill, they were confronted by the Scourge led by the elven traitor Dar'Khan Drathir, who sought the power of the Sunwell for himself. He believed it may have been the dragonling Raac, hatched from an egg found in the ruins of Anveena's home, but later events prove this false.

Kalec is located at Bilgewater Harbor in Azshara, fearing that the death of Malygos is a sign of weakness on the part of the blue dragonflight, and that Deathwing will send agents to assassinate the remainder of the flight. This holds true as the black dragonflight has invaded Azshara to hunt down Azuregos. Kalec and Azuregos help low level Horde players to repel the invasion.
Kalecgos becomes the new Blue Aspect when an astronomical event called the "Embrace", where both of Azeroth's moons come in perfect alignment, takes place when observing with the rest of his flight at the Nexus. This happens just in time as Arygos, now working with the Twilight's Hammer, realises he will not become the Blue Aspect and calls for the twilight dragons for battle. Kalecgos's new found powers proved too strong for the twilight dragons, which caused the twilight dragons to retreat. Kalecgos knowing him and his blue flight had the advantage, gave pursuit to the twlight dragons and chased them back to their newly found base, Wyrmrest Temple, where Kalecgos was met in battle by a very strong chromatic dragon called Chromatus. This newly created abomination proved too powerful even for the newly empowered Blue Aspect and his blue flight and sent them fleeing back to the Nexus.

Azuregos is a world boss found in southeastern Azshara. The blue wyrm Azuregos is a trusted servant of the aspect Malygos. As a blue dragon, he is incredibly interested in magical artifacts and their protection. For this reason he guards the ancient night elf Ruins of Eldarath, in modern day Azshara.
Azuregos has not been seen since a group of bloodthirsty adventurers came through on some sort of quest to make a now-useless quiver. While no one knows where he has gone, there is someone in Bilgewater Harbor paying handomsely for information on his whereabouts.
Eventually it is discovered that he is hiding in the spirit world, and appears to be in a relationship with a Spirit Healer, Anara. He eventually agrees to help Kalecgos fight the Black Dragonflight, but disapproves of Kalecgos becoming the new Aspect of Magic.

The ancient green dragon Merithra (known as Merithra of the Dream) is a child of Ysera and a major figure in the War of the Shifting Sands. She can be found in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj taking the form of a Night Elf, taken captive by the Qiraji alongside Caelestrasz and Arygos. When approached she, like Arygos, offers to craft weapons when given Imperial Qiraji Regalia and three Elementium Ores.

When the Qiraji started their first invasion of Kalimdor, Anachronos agreed to enlist the bronze dragonflight against the marauding Qiraji with the Night Elves. Even with the might of the dragons backing them, however, the sheer numbers of the Qiraji and silithid proved overwhelming. And so Anachronos called upon the progeny of the remaining flights, including Merithra of the green dragonflight

Merithra, along with Caelestrasz and Arygos, pushed the Qiraji back into Ahn'Qiraj to allow Anachronos, Fandral Staghelm, and the Night Elves to create a magical barrier to hold in the Qiraji. The three dragons and their companions flew headlong into the Qiraji legions, into the city where they hoped their sacrifice would not be in vain. Though the magical barrier was created, the three dragons were lost within the walls, where they still remain today, in humanoid form, as prisoners of the Old God C'thun.


Caelestrasz (Calen in his night elf guise) is an ancient red dragon and a child of Alexstrasza. He currently waits in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj in the form of a night elf, taken captive by the Qiraji alongside Arygos and Merithra. When the Qiraji started their first invasion of Kalimdor, Anachronos agreed to enlist the bronze dragonflight against the marauding Qiraji with the night elves. Even with the might of the dragons backing them, however, the sheer numbers of the Qiraji and silithid proved overwhelming. And so Anachronos called upon the progeny of the remaining flights, including Caelestrasz of the red dragonflight

Caelestrasz, along with Arygos and Merithra, pushed the Qiraji back into Ahn'Qiraj to allow Anachronos, Fandral Staghelm, and the night elves to create a magical barrier to hold in the Qiraji. The three dragons and their companions flew headlong into the Qiraji legions, into the city where they hoped their sacrifice would not be in vain. Though the magical barrier was created, the three dragons were lost within the walls, where they still remain today, in humanoid form, as prisoners of the Old God C'thun.

Caelestrasz, in his night elf guise Calen, reappears in Cataclysm outside Grim Batol along with Lirastrasza and Alexstrasza.

Calen also appears in his night elf guise during the Sinestra encounter, the heroic only final boss of The Bastion of Twilight. In this fight, he does battle with Sinestra, only to lose his life in the process. Upon dying, he grants the raid a 3 minute buff, granting 100% additional haste.

Arygos is an ancient blue dragon and offspring of Malygos. He can be found in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj taking the form of a gnome, who incidently has been taken captive by the Qiraji alongside Caelestrasz and Merithra. When given one Imperial Qiraji Armaments and three Elementium ore, he crafts weapons which, according to him, "will become a force of reckoning".

When the Qiraji started their first invasion of Kalimdor, Anachronos agreed to enlist the bronze dragonflight against the marauding Qiraji with the night elves. Even with the might of the dragons backing them, however, the sheer numbers of the Qiraji and silithid proved overwhelming. And so Anachronos called upon the progeny of the remaining flights, including Arygos of the blue dragonflight

Arygos, along with Caelestrasz and Merithra, pushed the Qiraji back into Ahn'Qiraj to allow Anachronos, Fandral Staghelm, and the night elves to create a magical barrier to hold in the Qiraji. The three dragons and their companions flew headlong into the Qiraji legions, into the city where they hoped their sacrifice would not be in vain. Though the magical barrier was created, the three dragons were lost within the walls, where they still remain today, in humanoid form, as prisoners of the Old God C'thun.

Arygos betrays the Blue Dragonflight and tries to become the new Aspect. But Kalecgos is chosen as the Blue Aspect and a fight breaks in which Arygos gets wounded and runs into the Eye of Eternity to use the Focusing Iris. He is then killed by Aedelas Blackmoore, and his blood is used on the Focusing Iris to give life into Chromatus.

Anachronos the Ancient is the child and heir of Nozdormu the Timeless One and as such is a prominent member of the bronze flight.

During the War of the Shifting Sands, Fandral Staghelm sought the aid of the elusive bronze dragonflight. Initially, the Bronzes refused, but their decision was reversed when the brazen Qiraji attacked the Caverns of Time. Nozdormu's heir, Anachronos, agreed to enlist the bronze dragonflight against the marauding Qiraji.

Even with the might of the dragons backing them, however, the sheer numbers of the Qiraji and silithid proved overwhelming. And so Anachronos called upon the progeny of the remaining flights: Merithra, child of Ysera of the green flight; Caelestrasz, child of Alexstrasza from the red, and Arygos, child of Malygos from the blue.

The dragons and winged Qiraji clashed in the cloudless sky above Silithus. It is rumored that the dragons flying above the ancient city from which the Qiraji emerged saw something distressing there; something that hinted at a more ancient, terrifying presence behind the onslaught of the insect race. It was this revelation that spurred the dragons and Staghelm to hatch their final, desperate plan: to contain the Qiraji within the city, to erect a barrier that would confine them until a more hopeful stratagem could be devised.
Now, 1000 years later, he is still guarding the Caverns of Time in Tanaris. Anachronos now seeks to finish the war with the Qiraji. Little did he know back then that all three scepter guardians, whether by agents of the Old Gods or betrayal by those that would call them friend, would fall to tragedy. His agent, Baristolth of the Shifting Sands, seeks a mortal champion to recombine the scepter and open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. A transcript of the final events of the war as shown to Anachronos' chosen champion can be found in the quest A Pawn on the Eternal Board.

Vaelastrasz is a member of the Dragonqueen Alexstrasza's red dragonflight who fought against - and became enslaved by - the vile Nefarian, son of Deathwing, master of the black and chromatic dragonflights. He resides in Nefarian's citadel of Blackwing Lair. One of the red Dragon Aspect’s strongest children, Vaelastrasz takes it upon himself to oppose the black dragonflight. Vaelastrasz is a red dragon. He is also known as Vaelan when he is in human form. He is initially a friendly NPC to the player, but eventually becomes a foe. In the WoW story, Vaelastrasz (commonly referred to as Vael) has sworn to hunt Nefarian and the black dragonflight until the end of his days.
Vaelastrasz is an intense, time-critical encounter. It must be completed while Essence of the Red is active. Essence of the Red gives casters 500 mana per second, rogues 50 energy per second, and warriors 20 rage per second. While it is active, mana, energy and rage conservation are non-issues, but it will wear off three minutes after the fight begins, and then healers will no longer be able to keep up with the damage being constantly dished out to the raid.
Vaelastrasz is considered one of the most intense fights WoW has yet to release. While the fight can be unbelievably frustrating taking some guilds months to get their first kill once he finally goes down it becomes a favorite of most people who experience it.

Onyxia is the current broodmother of the black dragonflight on Azeroth. After carefully calculating her plans for many years, she entered into a pact with her elder brother, Nefarian, to take over for their missing father and gain control of the entire flight. To this end, she has begun manipulating many mortals and dragons alike to her own ends and wields considerable political power over many groups.

One of Nefarian's mightiest supporters is his younger sister, Onyxia. A clever, highly intelligent dragon, she delights in corrupting the mortal races by meddling in their political affairs. To this end, she takes on various humanoid forms and uses her charm and power to influence delicate matters between the different races. Onyxia has even assumed an alias once used by her father: the title of the royal House Prestor.

Though Onyxia is relatively small for a black dragon of her age, she shares the same powers and abilities as the rest of her terrible flight. Her searing breath weapon can melt both stone and iron. Her physical attacks, whether bites, scrapes or tail lashes, are lightning quick and nearly unstoppable. When cornered, Onyxia is fond of taking flight and blasting her troublesome prey from above.

Onyxia initiates combat using her breath weapon and then moves directly into melee, preferably targeting soft targets such as spellcasters. If given a chance to prepare before battle, she uses defensive spells to augment her fighting ability. When she is damaged too much, Onyxia takes to the air. If she is still sustaining a great deal of damage in the air, she sticks to spells, to make sure she can retreat if badly wounded. If heavily injured she either retreats (if in open air) or descends to the ground to reenter melee (if inside her lair). She attempts to land on her enemies and crush them as she comes down to the ground. When she reaches the ground, she immediately uses Deep Breath against the largest group of opponents within range. At this point, she fights to the death if necessary, retreating only if a chance presents itself. If engaged while in human form, she fights using spells unless her attackers clearly know she is a dragon; if her enemies know her identity, she tries to retreat to her lair
Onyxia's human alias is Lady Katrana Prestor, the woman who used to stand immediately to the right of the boy king, Anduin Wrynn. She could be revealed as a dragonkin by Hunter dragonkin detection, and did not show up as a humanoid when using "Track Humanoids". Her exact purpose at court was unclear, but it was probably to undermine the state of affairs in Stormwind. Onyxia controlled Highlord Bolvar Fordragon through the use of the Drakefire Amulet. It is rumored that Onyxia may have played a part in refusing to pay the Stonemasons guild for the rebuilding of Stormwind. Then, using her black dragonflight and corrupt Stormwind nobles, she formed an alliance with the Defias Brotherhood and played a part in kidnapping the King of Stormwind (giving her more control of the kingdom, and preventing a possible Horde/Alliance negotiation). She may also have used the kidnapping to convince Stormwind's nobles (particularly Bolvar) to not send troops to Westfall, Lakeshire, and Darkshire, in an attempt to increase the strength of the Brotherhood and the Blackrock clan in those regions, which are both rumored to be allied to the black dragonflight, and cause chaos throughout the human lands. This is a tip of the hat to her father Deathwing, who wore the form of Lord Daval Prestor during the events that led to the freeing of Alexstrasza.

Nefarian (also known as Blackwing) is a black dragon and the eldest son of Deathwing. He appears in his human guise as Lord Victor Nefarius, the Lord of Blackrock. Holding the Blackrock clan and various clans of ogres under his control, Nefarian rules from his lair at the top of Blackrock Spire. Nefarian speaks Common, Darnassian, Draconic, Dwarven, Goblin, Gnomish, Low Common, Orcish, Thalassian and Zandali. Chris Metzen is believed to be the voice of Nefarian (though there is no definite proof that this is true)
The black dragonflight was among the greatest threats to mortal life the world has ever known. Led by the fallen Aspect, Deathwing, the black dragons ravaged and subverted the kingdoms of humanity and elves for generations. Yet, during the Battle of Grim Batol (nearly fifteen years ago), Deathwing was defeated by his fellow Aspects— though he managed to escape complete destruction at their hands. While he was regaining his strength in Deepholm, the random destruction indicates no direct control over his diabolical flight.

Nefarian usually enters combat in human form at first, summoning his many minions and allies while he wears down his enemies with powerful spells. If seriously threatened, he takes on his true form, using his shadow flame breath to incinerate anyone who is not properly protected. He uses his corrupted power ability to incapacitate whatever characters he feels are the greatest threat. If badly wounded, Nefarian uses his powerful magic to retreat. If prevented from retreating, he uses his most powerful spells and abilities to turn his enemies against each other, and to drain their health and spells while restoring his own. Nefarian’s breath, known as shadow flame, is among the deadliest of any dragon’s attacks. Any living target affected by Nefarian’s breath is set afire with shadow flame, taking terrible damage. The only protection from this attack is the scales of another powerful black dragon.

Soridormi is the Prime Mate of Nozdormu the Timeless, second-in-command of his Bronze dragonflight, and leader of the Scale of the Sands.

Ten thousand years ago, Soridormi represented Nozdormu at the gathering of dragons in the Chamber of the Aspects for the creation of the Dragon Soul. She contributed her own and her mate's essence to the Soul's spell matrix. Soridormi was betrayed along with the rest of the dragons when Neltharion attempted to use it to gain control of the Flights, but was saved by the intervention of Korialstrasz.

Soridormi again represented her flight, fighting in the final battle of the War of the Ancients over the Well of Eternity. She carried Broxigar into battle against the forces of the Burning Legion and the Highborne. At the end of the battle she was reunited with Nozdormu.

Soridormi appears in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade as a quest-giver for the Caverns of Time instances, taking the shape of a female high elf for the occasion.

She starts the quest The Vials of Eternity, which players used to need to complete for attunement to enter into the Battle for Mount Hyjal raid instance, but it is now optional.

Sindragosa, formerly the prime-consort of Malygos, is a mighty frost wyrm who was raised by the Lich King himself at Sindragosa's Fall in Icecrown. She is the very same frost wyrm that the Lich King raised in the Wrath of the Lich King cinematic, as the same scene is played out after completing the quest Where Dragons Fell. Sindragosa was the beloved consort of the blue dragon Malygos, also called the Spell Weaver, guardian of all arcane magic. With the help of goblin servants, Neltharion created a powerful artifact called the Dragon Soul. He convinced his dragon brethren to empower the disk, claiming it would thwart the impending invasion of the demonic Burning Legion.

However, Neltharion betrayed his dragon allies during the Legion's assault, provoking an apocalyptic battle in the skies over the Well of Eternity. Malygos and Sindragosa joined the blue dragons in surrounding the Earth Warder. They charged the black dragon...but Neltharion used the might of the Dragon Soul to strike out, decimating nearly all of the blue dragonflight. The blast hurled Sindragosa far across the land, deep into the frozen north.

Sindragosa is briefly seen in the Pit of Saron, the second 5-man Icecrown instance, after the defeat of Scourgelord Tyrannus. While the leader of the army of liberated slaves (Martin Victus for Alliance, Gorkun Ironskull for Horde) commends the players for their bravery and their efforts to free them, Sindragosa flies up from the pit below and unleashes her fury, killing the leader and his army. The players are pulled back to the entrance tunnel by Jaina Proudmoore or Sylvanas Windrunner, saving them from a grisly death. She is slain in the innermost sanctus of Icecrown Citadel by adventurers led by Tirion Fordring and Darion Mograine who seek the death of Arthas Menethil, the Lich King.

Sintharia, also known as Sinestra or Lady Sinestra, was the former prime consort of Deathwing and mother of Nefarian and Onyxia. She was, until recently, believed dead. Her experiments led to the creation of a flight of twilight dragons which she planned to use to rule Azeroth. Her plans never came to fruition, and her supposed death finally came at the hands of her own creation, the twilight dragon Dargonax. Sintharia was once the prime consort of Neltharion, who later came to be known as Deathwing. She gave birth to some of Deathwing's most despicable children including Nefarian and his sister, Onyxia. After Neltharion's madness overtook him and the rest of the black dragonflight, the newly disfigured Deathwing attempted to mate with his consorts, causing Sintharia a great deal of pain and leaving behind scars and burn marks. Sintharia was the only mate known to have survived. After the disappearance of Deathwing and the deaths of Nefarian and Onyxia, Sinestra reemerged hoping to continue her family's plan of creating a superior dragonflight to rule over Azeroth. Gathering up what shards of the Demon Soul she could find and Balacgos's Bane, Sinestra used these relics, along with the eggs of various flights she had collected over the centuries and the captured nether dragon Zzeraku, to create the twilight dragonflight. One of the first of these new twilight dragons was Dargonax, whom she considered to be her child. Her old nemesis Korialstrasz, along with others such as Zzeraku, the blue dragon Kalecgos, the wizard Rhonin, Vereesa Windrunner, and the draenei priestess Iridi, put a stop to her operation. When Dargonax's already unstable powers finally destabilized, he burned away, taking his "mother" with him. Korialstrasz believed that Sintharia's last, angered glance may have been at him.

After being resurrected by her mate, Sinestra has returned in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. She will be featured in the Bastion of Twilight, accessible only after completing the final encounter of the instance on Heroic difficulty. Because of her presence in the Bastion of Twilight, it is assumed that she leads in the shadow the Cho'gall's clan, the Twilight's Hammer clan, on behalf of the Black Dragonflight. The presence of eggs shows she watched a brood. During the fight against her, we can see various Twilight Whelp and Twilight drake, this proves she continues the "farming" of Twilight brood for her mate. It seems that she was defeated by heroes helping by Calen until his death.

Eranikus is a dragon of the green flight who has fought and lost himself to the corrupting Nightmare spreading within the Emerald Dream.

Eranikus, consort to Ysera, is among the greatest of the green dragons. Ysera gave him the task of guarding the Temple of Atal'Hakkar in the Swamp of Sorrows. However, Eranikus went insane not long after he entered the temple. Since then the trolls in the temple have dispatched a group to Zul'Gurub, and succeeded in summoning Hakkar into the world.
After being freed of the corruption of the Emerald Nightmare, Eranikus was found by Lucan Foxblood shortly after traveling to Ashenvale with Tyrande Whisperwind and Broll Bearmantle. At various times throughout the story Eranikus assisted the adventurers when they were in dire straights, although he was hesitant to do so due to his fear of becoming corrupted again. During the fight to save Malfurion, Ysera was captured by the Nightmare. As the Nightmare's strength increased, Eranikus discovered that Ysera had not yet been corrupted and he arrived to help Lucan Foxblood free her from the prison where the Nightmare Lord had placed her. During the attack on the prison, Eranikus was confronted by Lethon and in his struggle to prevent being corrupted again he pushed himself and Lethon into a void, tearing Lethon apart and dragging Eranikus into the vortex. While several characters, such as Malfurion and Ysera, believes this to be the death of Eranikus, it was not actually confirmed whether if he died or not, as with Lethon.

Korialstrasz is the prime consort of the Dragonqueen Alexstrasza. In the guise of the elven mage Krasus, he is a senior member of the Kirin Tor, and one of The Six, the ruling council of Dalaran. Korialstrasz is an ancient, wise, and powerful dragon of the red dragonflight. He was Alexstrasza's newest consort just prior to the War of the Ancients and continues to be so to this day. As her current prime consort, Korialstrasz acts as Alexstrsza's majordomo in all affairs. He is fiercely loyal to his queen, and was "first in love" among her consorts. As an active agent of the red dragonflight he is a protector of all things living, often spending time away from his queen and kin for his duties. He constantly watches over the younger races, often taking mortal guises and hiding amongst them. His most prominent guise in recent times is that of Krasus, a high elf mage of the Kirin Tor, and a member of the Six; the ruling council of Dalaran. Another guise is that of Borel, most likely his alias among the Convocation of Silvermoon.

Krasus appears to be a high elf wizard of extreme confidence, secure in his power and rank among the council. His very presence commands respect, and yet he is not proud or haughty. He remains in his elven form almost exclusively, transforming into a dragon only for special reasons or when in the presence of others of his kind. Those few who know his true nature have agreed to keep it a secret.

Krasus remains in his elven shape as long as possible during battle, revealing his dragon form only if desperate. He almost never shows his great strength in physical combat, preferring instead to fight with the spells and other arcane powers at his disposal. Should he choose to show his dragon side, he takes to the air swiftly, using his breath weapon and spell-like abilities to speed his escape. For all his strength and power, he is actually quite inexperienced in draconic combat. After all, he’s had little opportunity to practice during his decades of roaming the surface of Azeroth in humanoid form.

For Your Dream Kitchen

I know most of you are dreaming and aiming to have a very attractive and appealing kitchen. Some are trying to put a modern touch on it by renovating their kitchen and by choosing other finishing material to provide a brand new look to it. Kitchen countertops is probably the top priority if you wishes to renovate the kitchen. It serves as the kitchen's highlight and the first place that you usually work with most especially if you're into cooking.
When choosing the right countertop material for your kitchen, you actually have a wide variety of choices.However, each countertop material may vary depending on their price, quality and appearance so you really have to be very wise in choosing the right one.
There are some cheap finishing materials available including the laminated tiles, ceramic tiles and and glass. However, even though they are very inexpensive, the quality and durability may not be so satisfying unless you really handle it with care.
Some materials are very expensive yet high in quality. This may include granite, marble and quartz. These materials are immensely beautiful and will suit every kitchen style.
Granite is highly durable and resistant to staining, scratching or scorching. It is not so porous too compare to other material and it comes up with many colors and design.
But keep in mind that it is not just about the material. You also have to consider the company who will install your countertop because the durability may vary depending on how well the countertop is being installed.
If ever you're looking for a well trusted counter tops Vancouver installation services, you can check Floform. They are well known in this field and has been in the industry for 5 decades!! I guess that's good enough reason to prove how well their services are. You can check their site at

Ysera, the green Dragon Aspect, is charged with the protection of the Emerald Dream, but also watches over Azeroth. To the druids she is known as the "mother" of Cenarius, but since he is not a dragon, this is not literal.

Ysera is green, and her skin glitters with countless emeralds for scales. Her physical form is ghostly, ethereal, like watching a living dream or vision. The Emerald Dream is a place where all living beings dream when sleeping. It is a place of where sentient beings have dreams of hope, and faith for a better tomorrow. From the Emerald Dream, Ysera can observe all lesser races. Her eyes are always closed, although you can see her pupils move constantly below her eyelids as if watching many dreams at once.

There are only a few recorded moments in history where Ysera has opened her eyes. When she does, a person can see eyes of many colors, like a rainbow. The eyes of every sentient creature can be seen at once through her eyes. Ysera opened her eyes during the War of the Ancients after seeing Malorne dead, and again when addressing Malfurion Stormrage on his druidic prowess. She opened them another time during the Second War, before Krasus, when he tried to convince her to help free Alexstrasza. Ysera also opened her eyes after she regained her powers during the fight against Deathwing. Ysera fought alongside the other Dragon Aspects against the evil of Deathwing while Rhonin destroyed the Demon Soul.

Ysera can assume the form of a female from any race, which she chooses depending on whom she is talking to. Often she wears a dress of emerald green, emerald jewellery, and has emerald-green hair.

Ysera avoids and dislikes combat, especially in her realm. When angered, she is terrible, paranoid and impulsive. She keeps herself isolated in the Eye of Ysera within the Emerald Dream, and is rarely seen in the real world. When she does visit the living plane, she shapeshifts into a humanoid form, covered by a green hood, and her eyes are always closed.

When in combat, she attacks with her greenish breath to put her opponents to sleep, and rarely strikes to kill. She prefers to neutralize her enemies and banish them away from her realm.

Ysera can travel from mind to mind to travel anywhere she wishes by entering the dreams of any living being sleeping. She may enter the dreams of a target to communicate with or warn the sleeping creature. Ysera has the ability to planeshift between the real world and the Emerald Dream.

According to War of the Ancients, Ysera was said to be the mother of Cenarius, and close friends of Malorne. It was later revealed that Ysera was only the adoptive mother. Ysera taught Cenarius the secrets of the Emerald Dream, forming a close bond with him. Many fans theorize that Elune and Ysera are the same being, since they are shown as entities that care for the lesser races with compassion. However, writer Richard A. Knaak has confirmed in his book War of the Ancients Trilogy that they are NOT the same.

Nozdormu is a slim and sinuous bronze dragon, with scales of a metallic golden-brown color, and can arrange sand to conform to his body, cementing into one definite form. His eyes are made from gemstones, the color of the sun. He moves with a speed and grace belied by his monstrous form. Curiously, his position seems to change from moment to moment, as though its location in space were constantly in flux. Nozdormu the Timeless is one of the five Great Aspects empowered by the titans to watch over Azeroth. He fought against the demons during the War of the Ancients. Following this intervention, he retreated into seclusion, immersing himself in his duties. He emerges only infrequently, when events require his direct presence. He intervened in the defeat of Deathwing at the hands of Krasus and his allies, one of the few times he has been seen in the skies of Azeroth.
Nozdormu is difficult to defeat because of his ability to look into the corridors of time and repeat events if they do not progress as he feels they should. He is extremely wise and uses his insight to determine the best course of action before proceeding. Should this fail, he simply tries again as necessary, or uses his power to avoid the encounter entirely. Nozdormu can take any form he desires, as though constantly under the effects of a shapechange spell. He frequently takes on the role of a humanoid creature and travels incognito as a simple commoner or peon. When doing this, the only consistent trait he displays is the absence of any need to hurry.Nozdormu has both a power and a curse: he knows when and how he will die. Until that time comes, he cannot perish.

Deathwing the Destroyer, formerly known as Neltharion the Earth-Warder, is one of the five Dragon Aspects and leader of the black dragonflight. Thousands of years ago, Neltharion was empowered by the Titans with dominion over the earth and the deep places of Azeroth. However, driven mad by the Old Gods, he turned against the other Aspects during the War of the Ancients. Among both mortals and dragons his name has become one whispered with a feeling of fear and contempt.

The black aspect involved himself in the Second War, adopting the form of Lord Daval Prestor in order to destroy the Alliance from within. He also managed to turn his greatest enemy, Alexstrasza, into a slave of the Horde, with which he later allied himself. After a series of setbacks, culminating in his defeat at the hands of the other Aspects, Deathwing retreated to the elemental plane of Deepholm to recuperate. From there, he observed his former mate Sintharia's experiments with the twilight dragonflight in Grim Batol. He now continues his late consort's work.

Though believed dead by many, Deathwing made his return in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the third expansion to World of Warcraft, and his wrath constituted a pre-release event known as the Shattering, which changed the world of Azeroth permanently. The world continues to reel from the effects of Deathwing's return as he flies over Azeroth to randomly cast his flame. He will be the final raid encounter of Cataclysm, appearing as the last two encounters of the Dragon Soul raid.

Deathwing has control over the land and its fathoms, including lava. Like the rest of his dragonflight, lava features prominently in his attacks. He also has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, such as those within volcanoes.

Deathwing is a terrifying opponent who is as cruel as he is vicious. He cares nothing for honor or nobility, striking with whatever weapons and cunning he has at his disposal, reveling in causing earthquakes and ripping open volcanic fissures. He often sends his minions into combat while he surveys the battlefield, striking at whatever weaknesses he discovers.
While Deathwing was once a benevolent entity, he is now completely evil. He hates all mortal races, and wishes to kill them all. He's also utterly insane, most notably shown when he had the Demon Soul. Deathwing was attached to it, such that even when warned by the goblin alchemists who made his first armor that the Demon Soul's energies would kill him if he kept it with him too long, it wasn't enough for him to let go of it, and was only willing to part with, temporarily, when reminded that it would likely be stolen from him if he was dead.

In spite of his insanity, Deathwing does display a degree of cunning. Although he hates mortals, he is apparently willing to tolerate them if it can prove of any help in his plans, though inevitably he will do away with them when they have outlived their usefulness.

Maintaining A House Regularly and Fixing the Roof

A house should be maintained in a regular basis whether you are trying to add value to it or you are trying to add more security and protection for you and your family. I know every homeowner is aware with that. Is it necessary? Yes of course even if it means that you have to spend a lot of money for the sake of it. But it doesn't really matter because after all, we are also the one who can benefit from it in return.
Actually, as much as possible, you have to pay attention in every single details just like in fixing the roof for example. Keep in mind Clogged or leaking roof gutters allow water to cascade down the walls of your house, causing ugly stains on the siding and even flooding basements and foundation plantings. It weakens the roof foundation which may bring danger in your family. So to prevent it from getting worst, you have to fix it immediately.
Leaks should be patched as soon as you spot them. In most cases, roof leaks can easily be sealed with a silicone rubber caulking compound sold in every hardware stores. For seams leaks I would advise using a wire brush to clean the inside of the gutter along both sides of the leaky seam, then wipe clean with a rag saturated with paint thinner. Use a putty knife and spread on a liberal bead of the silicone rubber; press firmly into the seam.
But of course, not everyone can do such task so if you do not have the skill and the experience, it is highly advisable to hire expert Roofers to fix it. They are licensed and well trained in such field and they can surely fix the roof in no time.
Just make sure that you hire someone from a reputable company so if you're looking for Roofers Portland OR service, you can visit and see how much they can help you.

Malygos is the Aspect of the blue dragonflight and one of the most ancient creatures living on Azeroth, and one of only a handful who were alive at the time the Titans departed. Norgannon, the Titan master-magician and keeper of lore, granted Malygos a portion of his vast power. From then on, Malygos would be known as the Spell-weaver, the guardian of magic and hidden arcanum. Malygos is a leviathan with small wings. His body is covered with crystalline scales of pure azure. His body shines with shifting colors that change constantly from blue to silver. Theoretically, since he and his children specialize in magic it is likely that their powers far exceed those of the other dragon flights since magic is the element they rule. Now that he has regained his sanity, he is once again taking an active role in the protection of the world. Malygos began a terrible war to purge the world of "rogue" magic users, including the Kirin Tor of Dalaran. Realizing the situation had grown out of hand, Alexstrasza rallied the remaining dragonflights in the Wyrmrest Accord to combat Malygos' genocidal crusade. After much conflict around the Nexus, heroes entered Malygos' inner sanctum with the aid of the red dragonflight and defeated him, ending the war and depriving magic of its appointed guardian at a crucial turning point.

Malygos, Lord of Magic, is said to have created magic and spells. His command of magic is quite impressive, rivaling that of a demigod, although he does not aspire to such power. While physically he is not as powerful as some of the other Aspects, Malygos counters this disadvantage with his phenomenal command of magic.

Before the War of the Ancients, Malygos was described to often appear with an amused expression on his face. While physically dragons cannot smile, it appeared he often walked around with a smirk. He is said to have had a sense of humour and an optimistic personality, enjoying using magic and illusions to entertain audiences.

Like most of his kind, Malygos is a solitary creature who avoids contact with others. He dwells in Northrend, in a lair filled with some of the greatest magical artifacts known to exist. He spends his days studying magic, refining his abilities, and studying the various planes of the multiverse both remotely and in person, while his few remaining children scour the world for ancient artifacts and repositories of arcane power.

Malygos does not seek out combat; and although he and his dragonflight are still routinely hunted by black dragons, he avoids their kind if at all possible. He protects his lair and himself with illusions and misdirection. Those who discover his home are encouraged to depart through a variety of means; Malygos takes direct action only as a last resort. When he does fight, he engages spellcasters first, using his breath weapon and other abilities to sweep spells from their minds.

Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Aspect of the red dragonflight, is the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth. She was one of five great dragons chosen by the titans to be empowered with a portion of the Pantheon's power and rule over her flight while they watched over Azeroth and its inhabitants. The titans also appointed her queen of all dragons.

Today, Alexstrasza resides at the top of the Wyrmrest Temple in the Dragonblight, a place considered holy ground for the dragonflights. No longer content to simply watch over the mortal races, the Dragonqueen has now taken action in bringing the dragonflights together to battle the now-hostile blue dragonflight and its Aspect, Malygos, as well as the looming threat of the Lich King.

Alexstrasza was one of the three dragon aspects that fought the demons of the Burning Legion during the War of the Ancients. It was also in that war that the black dragon Neltharion deceived his fellow Aspects, using the Dragon Soul (also now known as the Demon Soul) to steal a portion of their power. After the War of the Ancients ended, when Illidan, brother of Malfurion Stormrage, emptied three vials of water from the Well of Eternity over the river of Mount Hyjal, Alexstrasza, along with Ysera and Nozdormu, decided to use the Well as a tool to heal the war-ravaged land by placing a magical acorn from G'Hanir, the Mother Tree, into the new Well of Hyjal. The tree that grew from this acorn was proclaimed the original World Tree of Azeroth, and is named Nordrassil.

For some time after, she and her fellow red dragons were at peace, but over time they began to argue about how best to shelter and protect the world. The rise to power of humans and other races left many believing that these new people were dangerous and should be destroyed, while others of Alexstrasza’s ilk felt they should be educated to teach them right from wrong.or someone of her power, the Dragonqueen is surprisingly compassionate. While Ysera has always favored the dreaming races and the students of Cenarius, Alexstrasza and her flight are known for avoiding killing if at all possible (as they are the defenders of life). Alexstrasza loves all living creatures and protects them, and only those who menace the dragonflights or the world face her wrath. Alexstrasza is supremely confident in her strength and righteousness. She does not seek out combat, but destroys only to punish or renew. In battle, she observes her foes carefully before striking at those she believes are the most deserving of her wrath. Enemies who flee when their leaders are defeated are generally allowed to escape, having learned a lesson they will not soon forget.

She prefers peace and solitude, although she will defend her lands with all her power against any who threaten them without due cause. She often uses her shapechange power to appear as a creature of nature, in order to see what encroaching mortals will do before revealing her presence. Alexstrasza is devoted to all forests, and to a lesser extent all other types of green and fertile growing things. She considers all natural woodlands her home, and she need fear no beast within such lands. Although many of Azeroth’s natural creatures revere the Great Red Leviathan, she is not a goddess and does not pretend to be otherwise. Alexstrasza is rarely venerated by any particular group, although some elven communities pay her homage. Druids of the wild in particular appreciate her serene presence, considering her second in importance only to Ysera.

Vindicator Maraad is a draenei paladin stationed aboard the Skybreaker which is flying above Icecrown. He wields Hammer of the Naaru. His sister became the mother to the assassin Garona Halforcen. He is currently Garona's oldest living relative, and with the death of Aegwynn, to her son Med'an as well.
Maraad rescued Garona from Theramore, and revealed that he is Garona's uncle (and therefore Med'an's great uncle). He explained that Gul'dan had bred his sister to one of his warriors (which, considering orcish/draenei relations at the time, implies rape), which resulted in Garona's birth. Once he had learned of his sister's daughter, Maraad began his years-long search for her. He has now become a founding member of the New Council of Tirisfal.

Iridi was a draenei priestess and an apprentice, along with her unnamed draenei friend, to an unnamed naaru in Outland. When they finished their studies, they were each given a powerful staff by the naaru. They eventually made their way to Azeroth with the hopes of using their power to help people. When Iridi's comrade was murdered by Vereesa Windrunner's cousin Zendarin — who in the process stole the staff from the corpse of the draenei — Iridi took upon herself the task of traveling to Grim Batol in order to retrieve the stolen staff. However, this quest expanded far beyond a stolen staff.
After arriving at Grim Batol, Iridi teamed up with Vereesa, Rhonin, Grenda, Rom, Kalec, and Krasus to prevent the black dragon — Deathwing's former consort— Sintharia from creating the twilight dragonflight. Within Grim Batol, Iridi found the chained nether dragon Zzeraku — whom Sintharia and Zendarin planned to feed to a twilight dragon, Dargonax. When everything seemed doomed, Iridi was successful in freeing Zzeraku so that he could battle and hopefully destroy Dargonax. After Zzeraku's draining battle with Dargonax, it appeared that the nether dragon would not be able to defeat the twilight dragon. Iridi gave all of her staff's power, and in the end almost all of her own, to empower Zzeraku. Even with the combination of the staff's and Iridi's power, Zzeraku was unsuccessful in fighting Dargonax and was devoured by the latter. In one last desperate hope to slay the twilight dragon, Iridi — with help from Rhonin, Vereesa, Krasus, and Kalec — used the last of her energy to destroy Dargonax. The major loss of power in the end proved too much for Iridi. After telling the group that she found that she wished to see Outland one last time, Iridi died knowing that she had played a large part in saving Azeroth. Granting Iridi's last wish, Kalec took her body to Outland to bury her.

Nobundo is a former draenei vindicator and one of the most tragic heroes among the Broken of Outland. When the orcs betrayed the draenei, slowly but surely, the draenei cities such as Karabor and Farahlon were destroyed by the orcs, and Shattrath was the last one left. As the Draenei prophet, Velen, and many other draenei fled, volunteer Vindicators and even civilians (some with families) of Shattrath stayed behind to fight the orcs and buy the fleeing draenei some time. Their hope was that with a believable variety of people, the orcs would be tricked into thinking that they had wiped out all of the city's inhabitants. Nobundo was one of the brave paladins who stayed behind.

He was supposedly found by the draenei who fled, as were other draenei who survived the battle, Akama (who was in a coma), Korin, Herac, and Estes. The other four who could walk were eventually banished, due to the red mist which in the end deformed them. The "unaffected" draenei called them "Krokul" — "Broken", and for that they could never be in contact with one of the draenei again. In one final act of adding insult to injury, Nobundo's Light-blessed crystalline hammer was confiscated by a former friend, the last remaining piece of his past, and of who he once was.

Years passed, with some Broken devolving further into the madness of the Lost Ones, or even committing suicide when this change was apparent. As for Nobundo, his sleep was always haunted by dreams of the slaughter at Shattrath City, and every day he would walk to the peak of a mountain and sit, praying, hoping, to somehow regain his mastery over the Light and that his nightmares would finally end.

Countless times he did this, but would always go back to the Broken camps disappointed. Though one day, when his prayer was finally answered, no heavenly voice told him what to do, nor did a naaru descend from on high to aid him. No, Nobundo's prayers were answered by the Wind.

As with generations of tauren, orcs, trolls, and countless other races, the wind revealed. to Nobundo the delicate balance of nature, the powers and truth of the Five Elements and the path of the shaman. He listened eagerly, and came to understand and follow this path.

Invigorated by this new power, Nobundo set out to inform the draenei of his discovery, only to find that most draenei wouldn't listen to a broken. However, one draenei did listen to him: Velen.

The leader of the draenei realized that the way of the shaman, as well as the Light, was a path worth treading, and Nobundo became one of his inner circle. With his support and encouragement, Noubundo met up with him at Telredor in Zangarmarsh and introduced the shaman's path to the draenei, teaching all who were willing to listen. The shaman would eventually accompany Velen in the raid to retake the Exodar, and survived the crash on Azeroth. He remains there today, ready to share his knowledge with aspiring shamans in the service of the draenei — and now the Alliance.

Exploring the World of Phlebotomy

Are you familiar with the so called "Phlebotomy?" What is it for? How does it work? And how does it differ from other medical procedures? Phlebotomy is actually a branch of medical science that deals with taking blood from patients in order to carry out various medical tests. The person who practice such medical procedure is called Phlebotomist.
If you've been through a series of medical tests as a part of your application to an employer, then most likely, phlebotomy is not so new to you. The name may sounds Jargon to others but the process itself is very common and something that all of us are very familiar with.
If you're into Health Care field or you are just taking a medical course like Nursing, then you might want to consider taking course related to phlebotomy and be a certified phlebotomist. Phlebotomists are highly in demand today and for others, having a certification in such field is a big advantage especially now that the Job market is getting tougher and tougher everyday. It is a big advantage indeed because your phlebotomy certification will be added on top of your skill and experience and will give you higher chances to be hire by that company.
And if in case you're looking for a reputable phlebotomy school bay area in San Francisco, you can visit the official web page of Gurnick Academy at

Velen has been the leader of the draenei people since their flight from Argus 25,000 years before the first orcish invasion of Azeroth. As his title entails, he has been granted the gift of prophecy, and — aided by the Light — has guided his people as they fled from, and later fought against, the Burning Legion who had ensnared their eredar brethren. He is first among the draenei and is the arch-nemesis (formerly best friend) of Kil'jaeden.
Velen, unlike Archimonde and Kil'jaeden, had the gift of "Sight", and was granted a vision by the naaru K'ure of the truth of Sargeras' plot. The utopia that Sargeras had promised was a lie, much to Velen's horror. He at first saw himself at the head of a vast eredar force of the Light, spreading the gifts of their race to worlds beyond count, as Sargeras had said; the next moment, he saw the truth. Sargeras had no intention of unification. His vision was one of death, of razing entire worlds to bare rock and ashes. And the eredar were not to be the bringers of enlightenment with their new powers; they would be man'ari, twisted, malevolent shadows of their former selves devoted to the destruction of worlds for the glory of Sargeras' terrible Burning Crusade. Horrified, Velen attempts to warn Archimonde and Kil'jaeden but they didn't believe him and thought it was only a delusion.Velen desperately prayed for guidance. K'ure appeared before him, reassured Velen that his plight had been heard, and instructed him to gather up his followers and go to the highest mountain on Argus, during the longest day of the year. Velen and his followers barely escaped the newly created Burning Legion. From then on, Kil'jaeden vowed to hunt down Velen and his followers and slaughter them, even if it took a thousand years

After entering the Vault of Lights, gather up in the middle, go slowly to upstairs by killing the Shields of Velen. When you enter his circle, DPS should spread out a little bit (not too much, just around the circle). Be sure that healers heal the aoe classes during the add waves, and every single dps should go for the Shields and Exodar Peacekeepers when they come to you.

The Prophet is surrounded by four Shields of Velen. These guards are relatively weak and can be taken down quickly. However, if any of these 4 guards evade, Velen and the rest of the guards will reset. He also seems to be leashed with random NPC's and guards nearby, so if they evade, he will reset. Right when you start the fight, he will spawn adds and the four guards standing next to him. You should bring members who can AoE, and if possible, a Paladin to AoE tank the adds (they don't hit hard). After you kill all the adds, focus on the boss. He hits for around 6k against plate and casts an AoE Holy Smite. Be sure to have your healers aware of it when it is cast. From time to time, he will knock back the main tank, dropping threat, and start attacking person with second threat. He is tauntable. After a while, Velen spawns another "wave" of adds, repeat the earlier process.

Alternately, a hunter can range tank Velen with adequate healing and reduces the difficulty of the encounter.


Akama is a level 70 Elite Broken draenei located at Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley. He is the leader of both the Ashtongue tribe and the elite of said tribe called Ashtongue Deathsworn, a faction of Broken draenei supposedly in the service of Illidan Stormrage. He was an elder sage of a group of Broken draenei that resided in the wilderness of Outland. Offered a chance at revenge against the orcs who decimated his people by the night elf/demon hybrid Illidan Stormrage, Akama allied himself with Illidan the Betrayer and aided in the overthrow of Magtheridon, only to later find that Illidan was no better than the pit lord. To all outward appearances, Akama remains a loyal servant of Illidan and leads his Ashtongue Deathsworn in his service — but away from his prying eyes, Akama sought to end Illidan's reign.
Akama is a kind but hardened Broken draenei who was once the guardian of the Temple of Karabor. When the Horde descended upon the Temple, Akama took charge of evacuating as many civilians as possible and then went into hiding with the remnants of the draenei. In the short story Unbroken, he fled from the Temple to Shattrath City before going into hiding, where he was the most exposed of the refugees to the fel energies that caused some draenei to mutate. After the cataclysm and the shattering of Draenor, Akama, now an elder sage of the Broken draenei survivors, was forced into the open where he fought a losing battle against the pit lord Magtheridon and his army of demons and fel orcs.

Akama can be found in front of Maiev Shadowsong's cell in Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley. In order to reach him, you must enter into the underground portion of Warden's Cage and look to your right at what appears to be just a pool of water. Swim into and under the pool and you will reach Maiev's cell where Akama is standing guard.
Akama is the narrator of the trailer for the Black Temple patch; this trailer shows his history from a guardian to his current state, and reveals his appearance prior to his mutation. At several points, it reveals events of lore: the orcs' attack on the Temple of Karabor and the draenei journey into hiding in Zangarmarsh; Gul'dan's raising of the volcano that bears his name; Ner'zhul opening his portals, leading to the creation of Outland; the arrival of Magtheridon and, later, of Illidan Stormrage; Akama, Kael'thas Sunstrider, and Lady Vashj aiding Illidan in sealing Magtheridon's portals before the final battle; and finally, Illidan claiming Black Temple.


The dreadlord of the Nathrezim, Detheroc, and his two brothers, Balnazzar and Varimathras, were left to watch over the Legion's holdings in Lordaeron when Archimonde and the main force of the Legion left for Kalimdor to deal with the fleeing orcs and humans, as well as the night elves who had defeated them in ages past.
In the aftermath of the Third War Detheroc began to notice that much time had passed without hearing a word from Archimonde. One day, Arthas stormed into the palace and informed them that their Legion was defeated, and that their deaths would seal that fate. They were able to flee before he could strike. Hiding in Tirisfal Glades, they coerced Sylvanas into assisting them, and planned a coup to take back Lordaeron and rule the newly coined Plaguelands. Detheroc and his brothers assumed control of the Capital City and ambushed Arthas, but the resilient Death Knight battled his way through their forces and fled across the sea, to his master in Northrend.

With Arthas gone, Detheroc and the other Dreadlords could concentrate their power in Lordaeron. When Varimathras asked Sylvanas to join their new order, she refused, butchered his forces, and turned him to her own side. Detheroc was not so easily defeated. He used his powers of domination to control the human general, Garithos, and when Sylvanas launched her next attack upon him, he turned Garithos and his forces loose on her. Now with Varimathras at her side, Sylvanas managed to keep Garithos at bay as she stormed into Detheroc's base and "tore him to bloody shreds" as Sylvanas put it.


A cunning and powerful dreadlord, Anetheron was second only to Tichondrius himself (he later took the place of Tichondrius for a brief period) in the ranks of the nathrezim. Anetheron waited in the Twisting Nether, acting as emissary of Archimonde to Tichondrius. He was one of the dreadlords assigned to watch over the Lich King, and grew agitated when they began to suspect the Lich King of treachery and possibly becoming a threat to the Burning Legion. But Tichondrius was confident that, despite his obvious ulterior motives, the Lich King was still providing the tools they needed to make way for the invasion. In a meeting in the Twisting Nether, Tichondrius assured Anetheron that everything was still well in his control.

When Archimonde came to the world, Anetheron went with him, and served as a personal guardsman. Anetheron showed his tenacity when he led the Scourge against the Great Alliance consisting of the Sentinels, Alliance, and Horde in the final, climactic Battle of Mount Hyjal. He invaded the Great Alliance's base several times during the battle, calling infernals to serve him, with the objective of defeating the resistance so that Archimonde could ascend to crush the World Tree. However, Anetheron was killed during the battle
After his death, it is presumed that Mephistroth acts as the new leader of the nathrezim.


Kazzak the Supreme is a powerful elite doomguard commander. Once commanding the forces of the Burning Legion on the world of Azeroth, Kazzak was responsible for the reopening of the Dark Portal, and has since relocated to Outland, where he commands the Legion's armies there against all who would oppose them. Also known as Kil'jaeden's Right Hand and Lord of the Doomguard demons, Kazzak was one of Archimonde's most trusted lieutenants during the Third War.

Lord Kazzak's main goal — indeed, his only goal — was to reopen the Dark Portal and return to Draenor, now the shattered realm of Outland. It was unknown if he had the intent to serve Illidan or raise an army to fight the night elf betrayer. Two years after the founding of Durotar, with the future in peril, a relic of the past had also surfaced, radiating renewed energy. This relic had enabled Lord Kazzak to activate the current Dark Portal, thereby reopening the gateway to the shattered realm of Outland. With the portal now opened, Lord Kazzak was seen departing through the Dark Portal. In his stead he left his minion, Highlord Kruul, to sow fear and confusion among the defenders. Accompanied by a host of infernals, Kruul was seen near a number of major cities in Azeroth. Once Lord Kazzak passed through back to Outland, he was promoted to Doom Lord Kazzak and set up his throne on top of Throne of Kil'jaeden, a mountain in the Hellfire Peninsula, which he protects to this day.

Unlike many demon leaders, who tend to stay behind the lines and direct their minions against a foe, Lord Kazzak loves nothing more than to wade right into the heat of battle. There, he shatters formations with his shadow storm ability while laying waste to individual heroes with his mighty greatsword. As the battle enters its most critical phase, he flies into a rage, reveling in an orgy of destruction.


One of the primary lieutenants of the Burning Legion during the time of the War of the Ancients, Hakkar the Houndmaster was the first member of the Legion to set foot upon Azeroth. He was sent through the portal created from the Well of Eternity to assist Xavius in strengthening the portal, preparing for the rest of the Burning Legion to come forth. Hakkar's primary weapon was a whip which, besides traditional use, could be used to summon a seemingly limitless supply of felhounds to do Hakkar's bidding. Hakkar attempted to remove Krasus and Malfurion from the resistance, but quick intervention by the Sisters of Elune saved the wayward pair. Hakkar inflicted fatal damage upon the High Priestess of Suramar and was about to murder Tyrande when Malfurion Stormrage stepped in to prevent his love from being destroyed, calling down a fierce lightning storm to vanquish the Houndmaster. Baelmon the Hound-Master is presumably his successor. He is described as a huge skeletal knight, with a horned skull.
In the original timeline, Hakkar survived the War of the Ancients and was killed during the Third War. When the Old Gods warped time and space in an effort to escape their prison, the timeline was altered in a variety of ways, among them Nozdormu's efforts to stop them, which in turn altered the course (though not the outcome) of the War of the Ancients. Hakkar's death at the hand of Malfurion Stormrage was one result of this, signifying that the old timeline was being overwritten, not relived.


Azgalor was once the lieutenant to the mighty demon-king Mannoroth. Following Mannoroth's death at the hands of the orc Grom Hellscream, Azgalor took it upon himself to direct the Burning Legion's ground forces at the Battle of Mount Hyjal. Though he isn't as clever as his former master, he has an aptitude for chaos and violence that is legendary even among demonkind. Following his master's death, Azgalor took control of the Burning Legion's ground forces and accompanied Archimonde as he made his ascension up Mount Hyjal towards Nordrassil, the World Tree. After various attacks, Azgalor invaded but was repelled; after some time he began to attack alongside Rage Winterchill but was still held back.
Though the Legion was defeated that day and Azgalor seemingly vanquished, he escaped into the Twisting Nether to plot his revenge against the mortal armies of the world, seeking to destroy all life on Azeroth by employing whatever forces he could utilize.
Five years after Azgalor was defeated, dark agents attempted to alter the course of history as they tried to sabotage the Battle of Mount Hyjal. The bronze dragonflight sent adventurers to prevent it via the Caverns of Time. Because of this intervention during this battle, Azgalor didn't fight until reaching the orc base. There he fought Thrall, troops of the Third War, and adventurers from the future, but this time he was killed in the battle. It is unknown what happened to Azgalor as he survived in the original timeline but was killed in the altered timeline. It is possible that he is dead, such as Hakkar the Houndmaster survived the War of the Ancients in the original timeline but was killed in the altered timeline; another possibility is he was just defeated and later escaped to the Twisting Nether as in the original timeline.
