Magic scar

Warcraft Lore 5 Archimonde Destroys Dalaran.flv 000085704.jpg

The Destruction of Dalaran is the end cinematic of the Scourge campaign Path of the Damned. In this cinematic Archimonde the Defiler disengages from the Twisting Nether and uses a powerful spell to destroy the magic city of Dalaran.

Archimonde draws magic symbols on the ground, forming a diagram of the foundations of Dalaran.
Archimonde says (in Eredun): "Let this scar signify the first blow against the mortal world... From this seal shall arise the doom of men... who, in their arrogance sought to wield our fire as their own... Blindly they built their kingdoms upon stolen knowledge and conceit... Now they shall be consumed by the very flame they sought to control..."
Archimonde takes a handful of sand and spills some of it, it rises into the shape of Dalaran city. Archimonde destroys the sand figure of the Violet Citadel peak, and the real Violet Citadel peak falls. He destroys the rest of the sand model, razing all of Dalaran into rubble.
Archimonde says (in Eredun): "Let the echoes of doom resound across this wretched world, that all who live may hear them and despair."
