Plot[edit | edit source]
|This section contains spoilers! Content within this section may reveal significant parts of a game(s) story.|
Sylvanas Windrunner returns to Icecrown Citadel and confronts the Lich King, now using the body of former Alliance soldier Bolvar Fordragon. Sylvanas incapacitates the Lich King, and removes his helmet, the Helmet of Dominion. In a fit of rage, Sylvanas splits the helmet in two, destroying it. This causes the planar boundary, the Eternal Veil between life and death, to be shattered.
