to the end of time by breath-art to the end of time by breath-art
One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should its defenders fail to stop Deathwing. In this bleak future, Nozdormu has identified an anomaly that bars access to both the past and the Dragon Soul: a powerful creature from out of time, living alone amid time-twisted echoes of the past.
In order for Nozdormu to provide you the ability to travel back in time to a point before the Dragon Soul was hidden by Malfurion Stormrage from anyone who’d seek its power, you must first go to a distant and desolate future to discover the anomaly blocking the past. You'll find yourself in a very different Dragonblight, stripped of its snowy landscape, with little more than ruins of the once-great dragonshrines. Wyrmrest Temple itself stands only as a reminder of Deathwing's madness -- what's left of his scorched remains is impaled atop the structure.

Nozdormu is facing his future fallen version Murozond,the one seen the future beyong end time and want to change the possblility of saving the world~~~no one can help the timeless one and the fallen himself to meet his doomed fate.

Really nice art and interesting story. All of the antagonists in Warcraft have posed significant threat on pretty much everything there is. Nothing captures this end better than endless, futile battle.

I love this picture!
Also I'm a bit sad that Murozond and his Infinite Dragonflight were defeated so easy, Nozdormu fought his Infinte Dragons since the time of the burning crusade and couldn't defeat them and now you just kill him as a nobody... I mean they could done him an awesome final boss in a patch ending raid instead of a random boss in a dungeon :(

Love the infinite dragonflight!

I think this is absolutely beautiful!

To me however it seems slightly off-balance composition-wise, I think the image is very right-side heavy, and the empty space on the left is a bit distracting. Perhaps some more space on the right side of Murozond would help (he seems almost squished to the side).

Sorry I just figured every artist appreciate a little bit of critique, right? :)

Anyways, great work.

Awesome picture, all the gold and blue really clash together fantastically. :)

That's exactly how Murozond would probably look like in his humanoid form. This is just perfect!
TheSerpentKing Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
The Pantheon would still get involved in the end. Not even the Old Gods could defeat them. Even if deathwing destroyed the world and the other aspects became corrupted, then stand no chance against Aman'thul and his kin

I love this piece so much I bought the print of it & I love it. The colors are so rich & beautitful.

The messed up part is that this is Deathwing's preferred future, yet you can easily see him impaled on Wyrmsrest.

Actually... thank a LOT for clarifying the lore behind the new heroic instances. Honestly, I never knew what was actually happening during those instances... the only thing I figured out is that it was the future.

One more question though... why is Deathwing appear impaled in the tower? Isn't he supposed to successfully cast the Cataclysm?... shouldn't he be alive and kicking?

Judging by the events at Deathwing's fall, I think I'm beginning to see what will happen to Nozdormu (we've only seen Murozond's end, not his beginning). Nozdormu lost his immortality, like the rest of the Aspects, which for now seems fine. But eventually, knowing that he's mortal, the Old Gods will make him go crazy at which point he'll leave time and become Murozond and try to let the Hour of Twilight come to pass so that the dragons will remain immortal and he'll then be able to create an endless, infinite, dragonflight.
Teh-Lucario Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Murozond is still technically 'immortal'. Murozond is created if you fail to stop Deathwing, thus the aspects purpose is not fulfilled. At least that is my understanding.
Laharl234 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Murozond will exist regardless. He's not actually from the End Time, he's simply living in that time period. He lives outside of time and is unaffected by it (unlike his past self). At some point in the future Nozdormu, now mortal, will be tricked by the Old Gods into trying to prevent his death and will shatter the timeways (I assume it means the Caverns of Time) and will travel through time as he plucks bronze dragons and dragonkin from throughout it and converts them into the Infinite Dragonflight. He was not created by the End Time, he just lives there.

We're not done with Murozond or the Infinite quite yet. What we've seen is only Murozond's death, not his 'creation'.

How do you know all this? It seems like a theory to me...

A. The Dungeon Journal
B. The way time works.
C. Nozdormu talks about it
D. The sum of other things we've seen about the Infinite Dragonflight

Fantastic, this is wonderful
"Don't bother. Your voice can no longer reach him where he is. His heart belongs again to darkness. All worlds begin in Darkness and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, it grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came! You see, darkness is the hearts true essence."

"still you understand nothing. Every light must fade, every heart return to darkness!"

With the aspects being rendered mortal after killing Deathwing, does Murozond now cease to exist?

Nozdormu is one of my Favorite Dragon Aspects...
