Maybe we’ve been going about this all wrong. Everything we know about Wrathion seems to be a contradiction of motives. He showed up in Mists and appeared to be very concerned with the fate of the world. Yet when things didn’t go according to plan, he helped orchestrate Garrosh Hellscream’s escape. For someone so bent on the defense and protection of our world, that felt a little odd, to say the least.
Given his activity in Mists of Pandaria, we were flat out expecting to see Wrathion in Warlordsand Legion. In both expansions, it seemed almost a given we’d see him. Everything we knew about him, about his task suggested it was a certainty. But maybe we’ve been mistaken all this time. You see, we’ve been looking at Wrathion as if he’s a dragon.
And he’s not. …not exactly.
