Before match

Malfurion (present)
▶️I continued to hunt my brother until, unexpectedly, he proved himself by saving Tyrande's life in battle.
▶️Whatever our differences had been, we agreed to part in peace.
▶️He left for Outland, and I was again called to the Emerald Dream, where I was captured within the Nightmare...


▶️How I have waited for this… trapped in the shadows... growing my power.
▶️So it is you, after all these years...

Emote Response

▶️No one hears your screams anymore.


▶️I've corrupted many druids before you.
▶️The Emerald Dream is weak and easily twisted.
▶️If only you could be manipulated like your brother!

Turn 1

▶️Let no shadow linger in my domain!
▶️I am responsible for this blight, and I shall be its remedy.

Turn 3

▶️My legacy is to destroy all you have built, just as you destroyed our empire.

Turn 4

▶️It took thousands of years to corrupt the Emerald Dream... and endless effort...
▶️The only thing that sustained me was knowing how enraged you'd be that I still live.

Turn 7

Broll Bearmantle appears on the board
Broll Bearmantle
▶️Malfurion, I am here for you!
▶️Broll! Where have you been?
Broll Bearmantle
▶️It is a long story. There was a blood elf, an arena, and the king of Stormwind...
▶️I should like to hear it sometime.


▶️I will never leave you! I will ever be your nightmare...


▶️The Nightmare never lets go of you...
▶️We are rid of him!
▶️The Emerald Dream will heal... in time.


Xavius, the Nightmare Lord, is the first of the satyrs.

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Lord Xavius was one of the Highborne's most powerful sorcerers and the high councilor to Queen Azshara during the time of the War of the Ancients. Since Azshara concealed her magical prowess, Xavius was considered the most powerful Highborne to whom the rest measured their skills. He was later transformed into the first satyr by Sargeras, before ultimately being transformed into the dreaded Nightmare Lord.
He makes his first appearance in World of Warcraft as an antagonist in World of Warcraft: Legion, where he once again helps the Burning Legion - while remaining first and foremost a loyal servant of the Old Gods. Xavius serves as the main antagonist of the Val'sharah storyline, corrupting the Shaladrassil and battling his old nemesis, Malfurion, and his allies. He also serves as the final boss of the Emerald Nightmare raid, where the Nightmare Lord ultimately meets his end for the time being.
