Default Who is Xavius really working for?

So Xavius the first satyr and co-designer of the nightmare is now back to working for the legion?

This is not really unusual I think, and tbh there are a few villians who like to switch between the two major evil forces on a near often basis.

It is more that he still controls nightmare influence when this was shown to be something firmly under the control of N'zoth. Is Xavius pretending to serve the legion? Since we know the Old Gods are more then happy to use the legion if it suits their plans.

Does it really matters who he works for ? Whoever are his masters, we will utterly crush them in one patch or two.

Is it bad that part of me still has the delusion that their is the potential for a great story for a double/triple agent of both evil forces?

He's working for himself, I think.

Yeah, but he only works for others because it suits him. He's only loyal to himself.

Did they say this?

I expect him to work full time for the tentacle gods now. Must have gave up on his crush for Azshara too.

Fair enough, that's a good point.

I do like his new model. Quite unique. I also think that Shaladrassil is the tree that Malfurion used against Xavius during the War of the Ancients, the three that absorbed his body and energies.

Quote:
Xavius once terrorized Azeroth with an affliction that almost obliterated the walls between reality and dream. His machinations ended in defeat, but he has been given another chance at vengeance. Now, Xavius leads the conquest of Val'sharah, where the tainted World Tree Shaladrassil spreads the Emerald Nightmare's corruption. With an army of vile satyrs at his command, Xavius will stop at nothing to vanquish all who oppose the Burning Legion.[8]
Seems Legion-alligned.

Xavius was probly helping N'Zoth because he was stuck in tree form and didn't really have many options.

So was Gul'dan. His AU self seems completely Legion loyal.

That is because anything even remotely connected to the AU is inherently inferior.

Yrel being the exception.

Given his new appearance he's working for the Sha.

It's kind of hard to tell whether someone is being loyal to himself or to the Legion, since serving the Legion may be the best available avenue for self-improvement. MU Gul'dan seemingly "betrayed" the Legion but after the death of Medivh, he wasn't getting any instruction from the Legion anyway. Also, would AU Gul'dan be willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good of the Legion? I kind of doubt it.

Shame Yrel's apparently perfectly fine with Grom "the Genocidal" now.

His "in the end everyone serves the Legion" line suggests he's actually loyal to the Legion.

Maybe the Legion and Old Gods are in cahoots?

12,000 years ago there was a festering wound in The Broken Isles. The Pillars of Creation were used to seal the wound. The Temple of Elune was built on top. The wound was opened again and an infinite number of demons is coming through.

Rift of Aln anyone?

Whose to say it isn't both?

If the Legion destroys the planet that basically frees the Old Gods, so it doesn't really matter whether he serves the Legion, himself, or the Old Gods.

If at the end of the day, it destroys the entire planet then everybody gets what they wanted minus Azeroth.

While it annoys me that the Emerald Nightmare is now apparently the Legion's, Xavius' paymaster switch isn't the end of the world. Whoever resurrects him, he is loyal to until he dies. Not a bad credo to go by.

I think his sha-like look must be just a way to show that he was involved with the old gods, but afaik he works for the Legion in the expansion - not necessarily loyal to them like you're discussing.

That's an interesting theory tho, if the Legion and the Old Gods aren't actually on the same side.

Apparently our Azeroth (as in this specific universe/timeline) is very special and that's why Sargeras wants it so bad. Maybe is something related to our Old Gods?

Speculating about this stuff just gets me more hyped for Chronicles.

My favorite idea is that the existence of Old Gods on Azeroth demanded from the Titans a stronger fortification of the planet, including the Well of Eternity. And that in turn eventually drew the Legion. But I doubt Blizzard is going with this.

Let's be honest. It's gonna be about the Titans' Pillars of Eternity by which means Sargeras and the Burning Legion can destroy/recreate the universe into their image or something to that effect.

I assumed the Pillars would be "the key" in "Their full, terrifying might is fixed on summoning the Dark Titan to Azerothand theyve already located the key to his return." But perhaps not.

Who knows? I assume Blizzard's story will reveal the existence of some McGuffin located on Azeroth (the Broken Isles) that would allow Sargeras and the Burning Legion to fulfill their objectives.
