Varok Saurfang realizes that that if he is to secure a future for the Horde, he must reach out to the one who led it in the past.

Blizzard recently revealed its newest World of Warcraft cinematic. Safe Haven details how Horde insurrectionist Varok Saurfang found and recruited Thrall to the Horde’s cause.

The cinematic starts with Saurfang showing up in Outland — the destroyed remnant of the original Orc homeworld, Draenor. Despite the scars of the battles in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, the land is green and growing. Saurfang finds Thrall, who is sharpening a blade in his own makeshift Orc village.

They talk about Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner, and the way she’s destroying the Horde. Thrall claims he won’t lead the Horde again, and Saurfang asks if he’ll fight for it instead. The Undead Assassins ambush them.

After fighting them off, Thrall gets mad at Saurfang for endangering his family. Saurfang reveals that he followed the Assassins, who Sylvanas presumably sent to kill Thrall. Saurfang tells Thrall that the two of them will never be safe, and can’t run from this fight. Thrall kicks over his anvil and grabs his axe.

This new cinematic gives context to how Thrall shows back up in the next World of Warcraftpatch. With Thrall back on his side, Saurfang’s resistance stands a better chance of catching on.

With Thrall claiming that he won’t lead the Horde in Safe Haven, that leaves Saurfang as the most likely candidate to claim a leadership role. If Saurfang or other important Horde leaders die in this resistance movement, that could convince Thrall to change his mind, and return to his original role as Warchief.

Players will see more of Thrall when Blizzard releases Patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara in the next few weeks.
