Success is achieved by unlocking 15 memories of the rune cutter in the forge of Torgahst A clear head. With this, the runecutter gets a large part of his memories back. He finally shares one of these memories with our heroes. This takes place in a video that reveals many secrets about the rune mason and the jailer. Check out the video (source: WoWhead) before we go into details.
Who is the Torghast runecutter?
This in-game cinematic confirms the theory that "the forgotten" is actually the lost primus who once ruled Maldraxxus. The Necrolords report that the Primus was a master tactician and excellent armourer. In his cell in Torghast we find a broken creature that outwardly resembles the Necrolords and the spectral image of the Primus. In addition, the mysterious runecutter is a blacksmith who does not exist a second time in the Shadowlands. The time of the disappearance of the Primus also plays a role in this story. If you believe Draka's story, then he was lost shortly before the Third War. The whole thing roughly fits into the time window in which the Crown of Dominance and the Runeblade Frostmourne were forged and smuggled into Azeroth.
We learned some important details about the creation of the Crown and Frostmourne even before Shadowlands launched. For one thing, we know that both artifacts are forged from the jailer's chains. In the video we see that the villain is no longer chained and can at least move freely in his throat (in the launch trailer for Shadowlands we see Zovaal still chained). In the short story "We ride out" we learn how difficult it was for Bolvar to withstand the sinister power of the crown (and with it the jailer). The Maw's dark magic streamed through the jailer's chains for eons. In Nachleben: Bastion we see how this darkness spread through Frostmourne like a disease throughout Azeroth and returned to the realms of the dead through Uther. In this way the jailer could not only ruin the realm of the living, but also infiltrate into the other realms of the dead from which he was once exiled.
Lies and deceit
Speaking of infiltration. In the book Enemy Infiltration – Foreword, which you can find in Revendreth, there is evidence of a partnership between the jailer and the diabolical Nathrezim. Through the Dread Lords, Zovaal was able to infiltrate the Burning Legion and use Kil'jaeden as his armory. The Eredar Lord locked the battered soul of Ner'zhul in the armor of the Lich King, which he hurled to Northrend in an ice meteorite.
In the cinematic, we look through the eyes of the rune cutter, who was first tortured by the jailer and then robbed of his memories. The jailer mocks the runecutter while stealing the knowledge of the first. The images of the Crown of Dominance ("A Crown for the King of the Damned") and of Frostmourne ("Your most beautiful rune blade") appear in Zoval's hand. It seems that the forging of such powerful weapons and armor originally came from the first. The idea of the creators was to equip the Primus and the Necrolords with the finest armor so that they can repel any enemy attack on the Shadowlands. At the beginning of the Maldraxxus campaign, Krexus emphasized that it was the sacred duty of the neclords to defend the Shadowlands. To conquer the realms of the dead with the force of Maldraxxus, on the other hand, is pure heresy and goes against the plan of the creators. What Krexus did not know during his speech in the Theater of Pain, however, is that the Nathrezim not only smuggled the armaments of the Lich King, but also the entire know-how of the necrolords out of the Shadowlands.
A new riddle
That this knowledge literally ended up in the hands of the jailer is a real disaster. Finally, Zovaal forced the runecutter to forge the aforementioned powerful weapons and armor for his sinister army. And it is hard to imagine what other knowledge the jailer withdrew from the head of the former prime minister. We also don't know how the jailer could throw off his chains and leave Torghast. Who helped him? Why did the Primus leave Maldraxxus? Did he go down the throat voluntarily? Or was he kidnapped? There are still so many unanswered questions in Shadowlands!
One thing is clear: there must be another figure in the background who broke the jailer's chains and helped Zovaal to kidnap the Primus. It can't be Sylvanas, the jailer was already free before the Third War. Should the Nathrezim have anything to do with his liberation, then Count Denathrius (the true master of the Dread Lords) moves to the center of the story. The lord of the Venthyr is just as powerful and depraved as the jailer himself. It is possible that Denathrius trapped the primus on some pretext and then turned him over to the jailer. If this theory and the records in Enemy Infiltration are correct, then Denathrius and his Dreadlods are the real pullers behind the story of Shadowlands.
