World of Warcraft – The Nexus War
With the Wrath of the Lich King expansion on the way for the World of Warcraft, Blizzard is preparing players for new content. The latest article focuses on The Nexus; an instanced dungeon for a party or 10/25 man raid.
The article gives the back story for The Nexus War. The author spins a tale of the blue Dragon Aspect, Malygos and his quest to stop what he deems the abuse of magic by the mortal races of Azeroth.
Determined to forestall a catastrophe, Malygos decreed that the world’s unbridled magic must be reined in by any means necessary.
Now Malygos uses the Arcanomicon to locate and tap into the ley lines, diverting the magical powers that course beneath the earth to his home base in Northrend, the Nexus. Once harnessed, the energies are focused through the Nexus’ ascending rings and blasted into the Twisting Nether. Malygos’s redirection of the ley lines has carried disastrous consequences, however, splintering the world’s crust and opening unstable rifts: tears in the very fabric of the magical dimension.
Players will be working with the red dragonflight, which is charged with preserving life.
The site has a number of screenshots from The Nexus as well as a short video showing off MOBs players will encounter in their assault upon the home of the blue dragonflight and Malygos.
