Wrathion is one of the more enigmatic lore figures in Warcraft lore. He made an incredible debut in the Rogue legendary quest chain, and followed that up with an expansion-long role that all players got to experience. We spent a lot of time running Wrathion’s errands. We spent even more time wondering exactly what he was up to. And then he faded away, right when it seemed his role would be most relevant.
We didn’t see Wrathion in Warlords, other than a brief mention and a cameo appearance with no dialogue. It made little sense, given his role in Garrosh’s eventual escape. And now that we’re finally fighting the fight he warned us about, he’s nowhere to be seen. But Wrathion’s story is full of strange holes — and the more we look at his story, the stranger it becomes.
