Watch the Second World of Warcraft Warbringers Animated Short

Blizzard Entertainment have uploaded the second episode from Warbringers, a series of animated shorts exploring three iconic leaders who will play pivotal roles in the events to come in the upcoming World of Warcraft: Battle of Azeroth expansion.

The second episode focuses on the Horde warchief, Sylvanas Windrunner.

Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde, leads her forces to victory against the night elves of Darnassus and moves to conquer their home: the great tree Teldrassil. But a chance encounter with a dying young ranger who questions her motives and tells her that she cannot win the war she is truly fighting—a war on life itself—leads Sylvanas to make a decision that will change the course of history on Azeroth.

In addition to the second episode reveal of Warbringers, the second chapter to the War of the Thorns quest series is now available for World of Warcraft Players to progress through.

The War of the Thorns content is available only until the launch of Battle for Azeroth, so players should be sure to experience it—and claim the Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) and War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) mount rewards waiting at the end of Chapter 2—while they can.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth launches on 14 August.
