World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade - Lady Sylvanas: Lament of the Highborne
Blizzard Entertainment surprised us with a great treat in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade. When you go to the Windrunner Spire located in the western side of Ghostlands and kill a Deatholme Acolyte you will get a random drop titled “The Lady’s Necklace”. It reads: “There’s an inscription, which reads: To Sylvanas. Love always, Alleria.”
Lore Note: Alleria the Ranger was the elven hero of Warcraft 2: Beyond the Dark Portal—for the lore buffs. Alleria, Sylvanas and Vereesa are sisters.
You take the object to High Executor Mavren at Tranquillien village. He will send you to Sylvanas in Undercity. The quest objective is to take The Lady’s Necklace to Lady Sylvanas Windrunner at the Royal Quarter in Undercity. After the recent closed beta patch. We discover that behind the arrogant, remorseless and bitterness displayed by Lady Sylvanas—the memories of the necklace brings Sylvanas to a sadness, despite throwing the necklace to the ground, and she begins singing an awesome song titled: “Lament of the Highborne” – that reminds fans of the elven princess from Lord of the Rings film. Throughout the event you may read onscreen the following:
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner looks down at the discarded necklace. In her sadness, the lady incants a glamour, which beckons forth Highborne spirits. The chamber resonates with their ancient song about the Sin’dorei …
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Belore …
Sighing. Lady Sylvanas Windrunner kneels down and picks up the amulet.
After singing, she kneels down to pick up the necklace from the ground. Showing us there may be some hope that Lady Sylvanas will change at some point, and maybe kick some Varimathras’ booty. Dreadlords can’t change their nature to corrupt civilizations. A undead with an elven heart does.
When speaking to blood elf Ambassador Sunsorrow after the Lament of the Highborne event, he now offers a new script. You ask: What’s it you have for me Ambassador Sunsorrow?—to what he replies the following.
Just a small songbook that I thought you might like to have. It contains the lyrics to a song known as the Lament of the Highborne: the one that Lady Sylvanas glamoured from the air.
