Determined to forestall a catastrophe, the blue aspect decreed that the world’s unbridled magic must be reined in by any means necessary. Determined to manipulate all existing magic to serve his own purposes, he now seeks to divert Azeroth’s ley lines to his own home, the Nexus by the use of giant constructs known as Surge needles. Malygos’ actions however carry disastrous consequences, splintering the world’s crust and opening unstable rifts in the twisting nether. If successful, his tampering could result in an ecological and magical catastrophe that would threaten not only the stability of Northrend, but ultimately the equilibrium of the entire world. The red dragonflight and the Kirin Tor now fight against Malygos in this Nexus War. […] The other flights have formed the Wyrmrest Accord, and fight back to defend the temple against their misguided brethren.
