Dun dun dunnn Illidari Scenario in 5.1

So we could be getting a lore update here regarding the bestest badarse in the cosmos.

HOWEVER: It is also worth noting that scenarios were originally created as a means to replace group quests to make levelling up have more variety. So it is entirely possible Blizzard is adding this just as a way to make Outlands more bearable.

Either way though, what do you think will happen here? I'm betting we'll end up fighting Blood Elven initiates, and maybe some of their Night Elven trainers.
I hope it has something to do with Kanrethad, the warlock from the Black Harvest council. He said he was going to Outland.

Excellent.
WE'RE GETTING GREEN FIRE.

I AM IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTIONAL INSTABILITY.

I CAN'T. I AM UNABLE TO EVEN.

And it's Jubeka and Karenthad. Nobody every remembers female characters...

Hey, I remember every boob I see man.

But when she's in a book, it don't count for nuttin'
Survive the Demonic Invasion - Fight off the demons unleashed by the Reliquary and return to Akama in the Halls of Anguish.

Was not expecting that. Loyalists to Kael'Thas?
It doesn't say "Fight the Reliquary;" it just says you have to fight the demons that they unleashed (possibly by accident).

That said, they could be turncoats instead.

... Hadnt thought of that. It wouldnt make much sense for Alliance doing this, though. Why would they be helping the Reliquary? Although, I suppose they might not have made Explorer's League Achievments or something.

I'm also kind of confused as to why they'd be there. I would've assumed Akama's Broken or the Sha'tar would've been the lead players in a Black Temple Scenario.
It's probably referring to the Reliquary of Souls, not the blood elven Reliquary.

I had figured it would have said "That were unleashed in the Reliquary" if that were the case.
The Reliquary of Souls is a creature/thing, not a place. It's located in the Shrine of Lost Souls.

The Reliquary seems to be sentient.

... Oh! The Reliquary of souls was the creepy face thing? I thought it was the acutal room. My bad.
Holy moley, this is right up my alley. I hope it's foreshadowing for the content I'm always fixated on discussing.

Now I have a brand new reason to go to the Black Temple! I love that place.

Same here! Its one of my favorite places in WoW ^^ I cant wait to go back.
I wonder if it'll have changed since it was reclaimed by Akama...? Probably not.
I was thinking green fire for warlocks now that I've settled down to read the scenario details, but looking at the details with the Reliquary, I always got the sense the Reliquary was some weird collection of emotional energy from Illidan in some way, perhaps Illidan has in essence backed up his own soul within the Reliquary in some way?

It shows it was, sorta, via the objectives. It's currently being controlled by Akama and his Deathsworn.

But the Council of Black Harvest (/whistles to self) apparently broke in to try to re-energize some object (YAY GREEN FIRE WOOOOOOOOOOOOO), and turned Black Temple on again, creating/releasing a bunch of demons.
