Some of you who have been in the game since last transition to TBC might remember the The Dark Portal Opens event in patch 2.0.3.
Azeroth is under attack! Horrific creatures are swarming from a suddenly active Dark Portal and have rampaged into the Blasted Lands. Defenders from Nethergarde Keep have scrambled to meet the enemy head-on. However, even with the assistance of reinforcements from the ever-vigilant Argent Dawn, the forces of Azeroth need your help! Not much is known of the invasion at this early stage, but early reports from the battlefront describe wave after wave of demonic attackers charging from the Dark Portal. It is also reported that Lord Kazzak was seen departing through the Dark Portal. In his stead he has left his minion, Highlord Kruul, to sow fear and confusion among the defenders. Accompanied by a host of infernals, Kruul has been seen near a number of major cities in Azeroth, along with the following outdoor areas:
Not even the elite forces of the Argent Dawn have dared attack Kruul directly. Only a large and well-coordinated group of adventurers might stand a chance of defeating him.
Well I think everyone can probably say it’s a safe bet that we’ll be seeing something like that before WotLK as well. Signs are already starting to pop up.
Q u o t e:
is there gonna be an event for when Wrath of the Lich king goes live? like it was pre-BC?
That would be fun, wouldn’t it? I would ask my magic 8 ball here, but all it’s giving me is blackness. Must be something dark and sinister on the horizon.
and in items found in the Books of Ebon Hold (Death Knight starting zone):
Report From the Frontlines: Undercity
I even have heard rumors that some of the Major Cities will be under siege from the scourage, thus prompting the assult on Northrend. No source for those however…just rumors.
