Nick and Katie are back to talk about the latest cinematics from the Sepulcher of the First Ones Raid. But first, they talk about Zereth Mortis and how much they are both enjoying it. Nick talks about how he loves Firim and the cyphers. He is, however, disappointed with a bird pet that won’t fly. He also talks about a questline to convince the Enlightened to start using the prefix Al’ again that felt awkward.

Next, they get into talking about the first of three raid cinematics from the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. They talk about how their surprise at seeing Saurfang and Varian return, and how they helped Anduin. Nick points out that Anduin breaking the sword is a callback to Sylvanas breaking the Helm of Domination. They talk about the Anduin cinematic, and Katie goes off about how Anduin magically reverts back to how he was before Shadowlands without any external change to show what he’s been through. Then they talk about Sylvanas eulogizing Arthas by bringing the focus on herself. Nick talks about how they had to balance not changing Arthas’ story against the player desire for Arthas to be involved, and isn’t sure that Blizzard found the sweet spot.

Then, they discuss the introduction to the Jailer fight. Nick compares it to a hype video before a wrestling ppv main event. They appreciate how Ice Crown Citadel is directly involved in transmitting the power from Azeroth to the Jailer through Torghast.

Finally, they talk about the finale raid cinematic. They talk about just what did the Jailer mean when he mentioned what is coming. They talk about the fact that the Primus is missing from the cinematic, and what that could imply.
