Highlights

  • Iridikron is established as a major villain in The Last Titan, the next expansion in The Worldsoul Saga.
  • Vyranoth and Iridikron, the last two Primal Incarnates, have severed their bond.
  • Players can expect Iridikron to play a major role in The Last Titan, likely arriving in late 2027 or 2028.

One of World of Warcraft’s recent epilogue cinematics just set up Iridikron as one of the major villains in The Last Titan, the third expansion in The Worldsoul Saga. This new cinematic was added to the game as a part of World of Warcraft Patch 10.2.5, Seeds of Renewal.

Warning: Spoilers for Dragonflight: Seeds of Renewal below.

As the first patch of 2024, Seeds of Renewal began the process of bridging the gap between World of Warcraft: Dragonflight and The War Within. Full of epilogues and sidequests, this content update is the first of four planned patches between now and the next World of Warcraft expansion.

Two World of Warcraft Races Just Got New Leaders

Two playable races in World of Warcraft are officially under new leadership as of the epilogues from Dragonflight Patch 10.2.5, Seeds of Renewal

One of these major story epilogues included a cinematic featuring Vyranoth and Iridikron, the last two Primal Incarnates in World of Warcraft. Vyranoth, who turned against her former allies to aid the player in defeating Fyrakk, meets with Iridikron in private, who is disappointed in her after she “abandoned their war.” He gives her one last chance to rejoin him in his crusade against the Titans, which she refuses and rebukes him, claiming it was he who abandoned their righteous cause for his personal goals. He then departs to continue his schemes against the Titans, leaving a final warning to his former companion: “Stay out of my way.”

Iridikron Will Be a Major Villain in The Last Titan

  • Vyranoth and Iridikron have severed their bond, bringing an end to the Primal Incarnates as a group.
  • Iridikron pledged to return when it is time for “the Titans [to] face their reckoning.”
  • Players can expect Iridikron to play a major role in The Last Titan, the final expansion of The Worldsoul Saga, likely arriving in late 2027 or 2028.

Since his introduction, Iridikron has been popular among many World Warcraft fans. Players have especially enjoyed how he does not underestimate the heroes, as they have successfully slain many powerful beings at this point. While fans were worried when he left at the end of WoW‘s Patch 10.1.5’s Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon, many are excited the imperious schemer is being set up as a major threat throughout the Worldsoul Saga, and cannot wait to see what he gets up to in The Last Titan.

That said, players might not see Iridikron for a little while now. Xal’atath, the Harbinger of the Void in World of Warcraft and Iridikron’s ally, is the villain of The War Within, and the major antagonist of Midnight has not been revealed yet. While it is likely players might catch glimpses of Iridikron’s plans over the next two expansions, his cryptic warning makes it seem like fans won’t see the full brunt of his schemes until The Last Titan.
