World of Warcraft Afterlives: Revendreth is Full of Despotic Vampires Living on Garrosh’s Pride

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands gets its last Afterlives short. This time, we're off to Revendreth to see how the Venthyr are making use of Garrosh's pride.

The final short in the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Afterlives collection takes us to Revendreth. There, the vampiric Venthyr are using one of WoW’s greatest villains to produce live-giving anima. That’s right Garrosh fans, your boy looks to be down in Revendreth pumping so much pride out of his pores that it’s almost single-handedly keeping the aristocracy of the land in power. Give the new short a watch below.

Of the four covenants, the Venthyr are undoubtedly the most likely to shop at Hot Topic. Which, for some is probably a selling point. In my time with the beta, I mostly stuck to the Venthyr questline and it’s definitely got that feel of high-level politicking. It was fun, but I was definitely more taken with how striking the environments of Revendreth are.

Strangely, this is probably the least hyped I’ve felt above Shadowlands after watching a new Afterlives short. I think it’s because the old guard of World of Warcraft that I grew up with is barely included. Hopefully, when I actually start playing, I fall in love with some of these characters as I did with the Thralls and Jainas of the world. That’s the mark of good story-telling, especially in a game that’s been around for almost two decades.

Regardless, Shadowlands has me more excited than Battle for Azeroth every did. I’m not sure if we’ll see a return to how good Legion was, but I think this will be a solid expansion for new and old players alike.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands launches on October 27 on PC.
