Is Mal’ganis coming to the Nexus?
The past few days, Blizzard Entertainment has been posting a few teaser images of Nexus minions, then another one with green swirling magic attacking the minions, and now we have the hero shocking a heal globe minion in full scope… a dreadlord of the Burning Legion.
I resized the image, and the green hues in the shoulders, chest piece, and legs… that’s also a visual queue that this is Mal’ganis.
In Warcraft III, Mal’ganis, Dalvengyr, and Detheroc had green armor. Tichondrius and Varimathras were red. Mephistroth was blue. Balnazaar was purple. Anetheron was orange. So, from Mal’ganis, Dalvengyr and Detheroc (green)… the only one that fits the text is Mal’ganis:
At first glimpse, it is difficult to pinpoint which dreadlord until you read the text: “I have been waiting for you. Are you ready to fulfill your purpose.”
That doesn’t make much sense to people who haven’t played Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. Here… let me give you a quick intro to the context of that quote:
Mal’Ganis: Gather your forces and meet me in the arctic land of Northrend. It is there that we shall settle the score between us. It is there where your true destiny will unfold.
Arthas: I’ll hunt you to the ends of the earth if I have to! Do you hear me? To the ends of the earth!
