WoW: Questline with Thrall and Draka in Patch 9.1 [Spoiler!]


The battle against the Dungeon Master enters the next round with Patch 9.1. In the Maw, the army of Zovaal marches to defend its master and the mysterious island that hovers at the edge of his dark realm. But before heading to Korthia, we must fight our way to the floating island. To meet this challenge, we need the help of the Maldraxxi, who have regained their strength after the return of their Primus.

Draka, the master strategist of the Necrolords

As long as the Primus is trapped in Torghast, Baroness Draka will lead the forces of the Necrolords in Patch 9.1. Few warriors have stood up for Maldraxxus and the Shadowlands as she has. Draka ended the civil war in Maldraxxus and united the forces of the Houses under the banner of the Immortal Army. And though the Baroness devotes all her time and attention to her new task, once again her past catches up with her in the Maw. For in the midst of the chaos, Draka meets her lost son.

We wondered months ago if and when Thrall would meet his mother again. After all, the memory of their separation weighs heavily on both of their souls. In Patch 9.1, the time has finally come! Draka and Thrall meet in Chapter 4 of the long quest series that brings the fight right to the dungeon master's doorstep. However, the endeavor quickly turns into a disaster. After all, the Covenant of the Pacts is opposed by a heavily armed army of the Damned. It's a good thing, then, that Draka, as master strategist, takes the scepter and secures the first territory in the Maw with the Necrolords. She also has a score to settle with the treacherous Baron Vyraz. He was responsible for the death of Margrave Krexxus and sides with Helya in the Maw.

The Legacy of Draenor

In the Maw, Draka meets her son Thrall (aka Go'el). The memory of the battle in which she gave her life for her baby haunted her all the way to the Shadowlands. Source: buffed Of course, we join Draka and the Necrolords in the fight against Baron Vyraz. But we are not the only allies of Draka, Thrall wants to join us as well. When the two first meet, Draka doesn't know that Thrall is her son. Thrall, on the other hand, is so moved that he doesn't dare reveal his true identity. Shortly before the first battle, the two speak to each other. The dialogue texts, however, have not yet been translated into German:

Baroness Draka: Vyraz hides within Desmotaeron. We will secure the area and summon the Zerekriss.
Thrall: Draka. . I'd like to join you on your mission.
Baroness Draka: You are the one they call Thrall, yes? I have heard of you. Come, then.

Draka and Thrall act as quest givers in the battle against the dungeon master. We have to complete various tasks for them and support the Alliance of Covenants in dismantling a base in the Maw. Thrall sends us on a quest to find his axe Dra'gora, which he lost fighting Helya in the opening scenario of Shadowlands. While doing so, Draka watches Thrall closely and inquires about his armor. She realizes that Thrall is wearing the armor of Orgrim Doomhammer, Draka and Durotan's former family friend.

Baroness Draka: I see you wear the armor of Orgrim Doomhammer.
Thrall: He left it to me as a gift. One of many he gave me.

: You were of the Frostwolf Clan in life, were you not?
Baroness Draka: I was. Their legacy will always be a part of mine.
: Dra'gora. It's good to have it in hand again.
Baroness Draka: "Draenor's Honor." A fitting name for a worthy weapon


Even though Draka doesn't make a face, she already suspects that she has something in common with Thrall. At this, Thrall finally plucks up courage and tries to explain to Draka that he is her prodigal son. However, the Baroness is so focused on the upcoming mission that she doesn't let him speak.

Thrall: Draka, there's something you need to know. I am...
Baroness Draka: Focus on the mission. I'll talk to you later.

Death to the traitor Vyraz!

Draka recognizes her son and addresses Thrall by his real name for the first time. Source: buffed When they reach the outskirts of Helgarde Fortress, a showdown finally ensues with Baron Vyraz and his patron Helya. Vyraz reports that the Primus has returned and the rebel Maldraxxi forces are outnumbered. He asks Helya to share her power with him, but the sea witch refuses. At this point, the Primus of Maldraxxus appears and while the Necrolords keep the Mawbound at bay, Draka puts an abrupt end to Vyraz.

Baron Vyraz: Our enemies approach, Helya. We need reinforcements!
Helya: Scared, Maldraxxi? The Jailer does not tolerate weakness in his ranks!
Baroness Draka: Vyraz! You will answer for what you did to Krexus!
Helya: Take my boon, Vyraz. You are outnumbered, after all!
Primus: Strike, matron of wolves! Show them the heart of a Necrolord!
Baroness Draka: For Krexus! FOR AKAREK!
Baron Vyraz: No! I am... stronger! I cannot... lose!

Once Vyraz is defeated, we return to our base. There, we finally see Draka and Thrall reunite. What exactly they discuss, the two keep to themselves for now. But we learn that Draka recognizes Thrall as her son after all and even addresses him by his real orc name!

Thrall: Draka, I...
Baroness Draka: Well fought... Go'el. Come, we will speak.

This ends the first meeting between mother and son and we are curious how their story will continue in Korthia. All we know from the test server so far is that Thrall accompanies us all the way to the top of the Sanctum of Domination (new raid in Patch 9.1) and even supports our heroes in the fight against Sylvanas. The story finale involving Thrall and Garrosh Hellscream is also yet to be revealed. Should Thrall accompany us through the tower from the beginning, then he will certainly meet the tyrant's soul. Will this reunion have a similarly good ending?
