This week’s World of Warcraft Shot of the Week is the Throne of the Four Winds. Pinnacles suspended high above the sea off the coast of the kingdom of Uldum, and home to the Windlord Al’Akir.
When Deathwing returned, Al’Akir was once again free to walk the winds of Azeroth. He became one of the Destroyer’s staunchest and most powerful allies, and called the Conclave of the Four Winds, ancient wind elementals nearly as powerful as Al’Akir himself, to aid in the elemental invasion of his former home.
Al’Akir’s temperament was that of the sky: calm one moment, and furious the next. But some few aspects of the Windlord can be said to have been consistent. He possessed godlike power that would buffet and shake Azeroth if left unchecked – and he would not allow himself to be chained again. The Champions of Azeroth, however, ultimately defeated him.
