General Drakkisath has been killed to open a leadership position for Deathwing’s soon-to-be-unleashed creation: Chromallus.
This is the continuation of page 59 even though the last time we saw Deathwing was when he was spying on Salandria and Rend Blackhand back on page 73. Need to return to and catch up with those plot points, right? Seems like the whispers of the Old Gods not only drove Deathwing insane but have transformed him into judge, jury and executioner of all of Azeroth. Lawful evil? Chaotic evil? Who knows.
Am I making you wait for the Cru and Sapphira on purpose? Yes I am. It makes it all that much better when you finally get it. She has a plan that involves Cru and things are about to heat up in Winterspring.
