在每一个世界,每一个未来当中,燃烧军团的铁蹄不断前进,坚不可摧,无人可当,给整个宇宙带来永恒黑暗的毁灭。而在这一切的背后,他看到了军团领袖模糊的恶魔形象:阿克蒙德——尽管他被众人认为早已死去——基尔加丹,以及,在所有恶魔之上的,堕落泰坦萨格拉斯。他曾经发誓要保卫这个宇宙,现在却一心想要将其毁灭殆尽。"

—— 恶魔猎手范德尔在幻象中窥探燃烧军团本质时的发言[6]

燃烧军团(别称军团[7],有时也被称作军团势力[8]燃烧的阴影[9]巨大的燃烧着的阴影[10][11]以及无尽的军队[12])是一支规模庞大、无穷无尽的军队,由恶魔和被腐化的种族构成,意图毁灭所有生命。萨格拉斯为了摧毁宇宙中的所有星魂而建立了这个军团,希望以此避免虚空领主通过对星魂进行腐蚀来制造黑暗泰坦——一种无法言喻的邪恶,宇宙的终极毁灭者和吞噬者。[13]

军团造成了无垠止境中无数物种和众多星球的湮灭[14],超脱于众多宇宙而存在。[15]在他们的伟大远征中摧毁任何可能造成威胁的世界[16]。军团已经对艾泽拉斯发动了三次入侵,但每次都在付出惨重的代价后失败。相当一部分的艾泽拉斯历史——包括第一第二第三次战争——都源于燃烧军团的动作。可以说军团是艾泽拉斯无可逃避的追猎者,因为它直接导致了卡利姆多大分裂;将兽人污染之后投送到艾泽拉斯进行入侵;一手创造了巫妖王;同时也是绝大多数艾泽拉斯所遭受的创伤的始作俑者。同时,我们应当认识到,艾泽拉斯是迄今为止唯一一个让军团在征服过程中尝到败绩的星球。

历史

创始之初

万神殿中神灵般的泰坦们执行着他们的使命:给无垠止境中的众多世界带去秩序。很快,他们遇到了一个强劲的威胁——扭曲虚空中的混乱恶魔。为了与这一敌人作战,万神殿派出了他们最强大的战士,高贵的萨格拉斯。虽然他一次又一次从这些一盘散沙又弱不禁风的恶魔手中斩获胜利,但是在见证无数的文明被碾作尘埃,无数的生灵被扭曲成畸形的怪物后,一种庞大的无力感在萨格拉斯的心中蔓延开来。尽管如此,他依然坚守于他的征伐之中。[17]

被萨格拉斯击溃的恶魔,会再一次以全新的身躯回到现实宇宙,并继续他们散播苦痛的行径。这一发现让万神殿派出了泰坦阿格拉玛来协助萨格拉斯展开工作。两人的并肩作战使得清扫恶魔威胁的战斗进展得更为效率。同时,这也让萨格拉斯有了更近距离研究扭曲虚空本质的机会。通过学习如何操纵虚空能量,泰坦战士创造了一个名为玛顿的牢狱世界。在那里,他囚禁了被他击溃的恶魔,阻止它们在死亡后重新归来。不久之后,萨格拉斯和阿格拉玛为宇宙带来了和平,同时决定分头作战,以进一步提高抗击敌人的作战效率。正是在此期间,萨格拉斯途经了一个笼罩在虚空能量下,被恐怖的上古之神所感染的世界。萨格拉斯对众多畸形怪物中的一只纳斯雷兹姆恶魔粗暴地进行了审讯,并进而得知了邪恶的虚空领主的全盘计划。虚空领主希望通过对物质世界投放上古之神的行为,来污染沉睡的泰坦星魂。这可以让星魂转化为一种难以言喻的黑暗生物,能够吞噬宇宙间的所有物质和能量,让所有生物都归于虚空领主的统治之下。这一事实让萨格拉斯惊恐不已,他立刻杀死了纳斯雷兹姆,并用手中的利刃将被感染的星球一分为二。[17]

萨格拉斯回到万神殿汇报他的发现,但迎接他的是其他泰坦的猛烈抨击。他们认为那个被感染的星魂是可以被拯救的,萨格拉斯不应如此莽撞行事。作为申辩,泰坦战士试图说明存在本身已经有了瑕疵。整个世界必须被彻底净化,从而避免虚空领主的计划得逞(对他而言,一个毫无生机的宇宙也好过被虚空主宰的宇宙。他指出,既然生命可以在无垠止境中诞生一次,那么就可以诞生第二次)。萨格拉斯突然意识到万神殿的其他成员永远不会同意他的看法。他孤身一人离开了万神殿。[17]

泰坦继续着他们的工作,而萨格拉斯则在无垠止境的一个偏远角落陷入了苦思。恐惧和疑惑让他最后的出了结论:如果要拯救宇宙,就必须先用火焰将其彻底净化。萨格拉斯深知他需要一支军队来达成这个目标。他回到了玛顿,这是他唯一可以打造一支军队的地方。堕落的泰坦将囚笼撕成碎片,释放了数之不尽的恶魔。这一行为造成了一起巨大的邪能爆炸,使得萨格拉斯的外形也遭到了扭曲和变化。曾经的守卫者为他放出的恶魔灌注了力量,强化了他们的体型或智力。他让恶魔做了一个简单的选择题:服从,或是永恒的死亡。恶魔做出了明智的选择。[18]

当新成立的燃烧军团挥师前往第一个星球,萨格拉斯亲自斩杀了看守这个世界的星圣。阿格拉玛第一时间得知了看守者的死亡,并在随后和萨格拉斯的决斗中以自己武器的碎裂换取了萨格拉斯武器的崩坏。重伤而归的阿格拉玛回到了万神殿,向众位泰坦报告了萨格拉斯的背叛和变化。万神殿和燃烧军团在一个叫做尼希兰姆的世界展开了战争。阿曼苏尔和阿格拉玛告诉这位军团之主有一个名为艾泽拉斯的世界存在,历数他们共同战斗的美好故事,试图以此恳求萨格拉斯停下战争的脚步。尽管如此,堕落的泰坦依然坚定不移。仅是一击,萨格拉斯的断刃就几乎将阿格拉玛一刀两断。这引起了两方如同天启降临般的战斗。最后,被腐化的战士释放了巨大的邪能风暴,吞噬了万神殿成员的躯体(尽管不为军团所知的是,泰坦诺甘农用最后一个法术保住了万神殿泰坦的灵魂)。萨格拉斯高声宣布了胜利,并挥师踏上了抢先虚空领主一步找到艾泽拉斯的征途。[18]

尼希兰姆之战让萨格拉斯认识到,尽管他的恶魔仆从鲁莽而嗜血,他们却缺少纪律性和战略思考的能力。因此他决定招募一批具有高度智慧、来自阿古斯艾瑞达人为他所用。艾瑞达人由一个贤明而强大的三人议会——阿克蒙德基尔加丹维纶统治。萨格拉斯获得了前两人的信任,并将它们和绝大多数阿古斯的生灵转换成了恶魔形态。然而维纶和他的追随者,也就是后来被称为德莱尼或是“被放逐者”的一群人,在神圣纳鲁的指引下逃出生天。军团序列不断地扩充自己的成员,比如末日守卫破坏魔等等。而在接下来的岁月中,不计其数的世界被军团从世界上抹去了最后的痕迹。[18]

The first invasion

详见:War of the Ancients Many thousands of years ago (10,000 years before Warcraft I) the Burning Legion became attracted to the world of Azeroth due to the reckless use of magic taking place on that world. The night elf "Highborne" under the direction of the Night Elf queen Azshara and her counselor Xavius had been undertaking experiments to draw greater and greater amounts of energy from the Well of Eternity, the source of magical power on Azeroth.

The Highborne's reckless use of magic sent ripples of energy spiraling out from the Well of Eternity and into the Great Dark Beyond. The streaming ripples of energy were felt by terrible alien minds. Sargeras — the Great Enemy of all life, the Destroyer of Worlds — felt the potent ripples and was drawn to their distant point of origin. Spying the primordial world of Azeroth and sensing the limitless energies of the Well of Eternity, Sargeras was consumed by an insatiable hunger. The great dark god of the Nameless Void[19] resolved to destroy the fledgling world and claim its energies as his own.

The invasion of Azeroth.

Sargeras gathered his vast Burning Legion and made his way towards the unsuspecting world of Azeroth. The Legion was composed of a million screaming demons, all ripped from the far corners of the universe, and the demons hungered for conquest. Sargeras' lieutenants, Archimonde the Defiler and Mannoroth the Destructor, prepared their infernal minions to strike.

Queen Azshara, overwhelmed by the terrible ecstasy of her magic, fell victim to Sargeras' undeniable power and agreed to grant him entrance to her world. Even her Highborne servitors gave themselves over to magic's inevitable corruption and began to worship Sargeras as their god. To show their allegiance to the Legion, the Highborne aided their queen in opening a vast, swirling portal within the depths of the Well of Eternity.

Once all his preparations had been made, Sargeras began his catastrophic invasion of Azeroth. The warrior-demons of the Burning Legion stormed into the world through the Well of Eternity and laid siege to the night elves' sleeping cities. Led by Archimonde and Mannoroth, the Legion swarmed over the lands of Kalimdor, leaving only ash and sorrow in its wake. The demon warlocks called down searing Infernals that crashed like hellish meteors into the graceful spires of Kalimdor's temples. A band of burning, bloodletting killers known as the Doomguard marched across Kalimdor's fields, slaughtering everyone in their path. Packs of wild, demonic Felhounds ravaged the countryside unopposed. Though the brave Kaldorei warriors rushed to defend their ancient homeland, they were forced to give ground, inch by inch, before the fury of the Legion's onslaught.

It fell to Malfurion Stormrage to find help for his beleaguered people. Stormrage, whose own brother, Illidan, practiced the Highborne's magics, was incensed by the growing corruption amongst the upper class. Convincing Illidan to forsake his dangerous obsession, Malfurion set out to find Cenarius and muster a resistance force. The beautiful young priestess, Tyrande, agreed to accompany the brothers in the name of Elune. Though Malfurion and Illidan shared a love for the idealistic priestess, Tyrande's heart belonged to Malfurion alone. Illidan resented his brother's budding romance with Tyrande, but knew that his heartache was nothing compared to the pain of his magical addiction.

Illidan, who had grown dependent on magic's empowering energies, struggled to keep control of his nearly overwhelming hunger to tap the Well's energies once again. However, with Tyrande's patient support, he was able to restrain himself and help his brother find the reclusive demigod, Cenarius. Cenarius, who dwelt within the sacred Moonglades of the distant Mount Hyjal, agreed to help the night elves by finding the ancient dragons and enlisting their aid. The dragons, led by the great red leviathan, Alexstrasza, agreed to send their mighty flights to engage the demons and their infernal masters.

Cenarius, calling on the spirits of the enchanted forests, rallied an army of ancient tree-men and led them against the Legion in a daring ground assault. As the night elves' allies converged upon Azshara's temple and the Well of Eternity, all-out warfare erupted. Despite the strength of their newfound allies, Malfurion and his colleagues realized that the Legion could not be defeated by martial strength alone.

As the titanic battle raged around Azshara's capital city, the delusional queen waited in anticipation for Sargeras' arrival. The lord of the Legion was preparing to pass through the Well of Eternity and enter the ravaged world. As his impossibly huge shadow drew ever closer to the Well's raging surface, Azshara gathered the most powerful of her Highborne followers. Only by linking their magics together in one focused spell would they be able to create a gateway large enough for Sargeras to enter.

Malfurion, convinced that the Well of Eternity was the demons' umbilical link to the physical world, insisted that it should be destroyed. His companions, knowing that the Well was the source of their immortality and powers, were horrified by the rash notion. Yet Tyrande saw the wisdom of Malfurion's theory, so she convinced Cenarius and their comrades to storm Azshara's temple and find a way to shut the Well down for good.

Knowing that the Well's destruction would prevent him from ever wielding magic again, Illidan selfishly abandoned the group and set out to warn the Highborne of Malfurion's plan. Due to the insanity brought on by his addiction and the stinging resentment towards his brother's affair with Tyrande, Illidan felt no remorse at betraying Malfurion and siding with Azshara and her ilk. Above all else, Illidan vowed to protect the Well's power by any means necessary.

Heartbroken by his brother's departure, Malfurion led his companions into the heart of Azshara's temple. Yet as they stormed into the main audience chamber, they found the Highborne in the midst of their final dark incantation. The communal spell created an unstable vortex of power within the Well's turbulent depths. As Sargeras' ominous shadow drew ever closer to the surface, Malfurion and his allies rushed to attack.

Azshara, having received Illidan's warning, was more than prepared for them. Nearly all of Malfurion's followers fell before the mad queen's powers. Tyrande, attempting to attack Azshara from behind, was caught off-guard by the queen's Highborne guardsmen. Though she vanquished the guardsmen, Tyrande suffered grievous wounds at their hands. When Malfurion saw his love fall, he went into a murderous rage and resolved to end Azshara's life.

As the battle raged inside and outside of the temple, Illidan appeared from the shadows near the shores of the great Well. Producing a set of specially crafted vials, Illidan knelt and filled each with the Well's shimmering waters. Convinced that the demons would crush the night elves' civilization, he planned to steal the sacred waters and keep their energies for himself.

The ensuing battle between Malfurion and Azshara threw the Highborne's carefully crafted spellwork into chaos. The unstable vortex within the Well's depths exploded and ignited a catastrophic chain of events that would sunder the world forever. The massive explosion rocked the temple to its foundations and sent massive quakes ripping through the tortured earth. As the horrific battle between the Legion and the night elves' allies raged around and above the ruined capital city, the surging Well of Eternity buckled in upon itself and collapsed.

The resultant catastrophic explosion shattered the earth and blotted out the skies (see The Great Sundering).

As the aftershocks from the Well's implosion rattled the bones of the world, the seas rushed in to fill the gaping wound left in the earth. Nearly eighty percent of Kalimdor's landmass had been blasted apart, leaving only a handful of separate continents surrounding the new, raging sea. At the center of the new sea, where the Well of Eternity once stood, was a tumultuous storm of tidal fury and chaotic energies. This terrible scar, known as the Maelstrom, would never cease its furious spinning. It would remain a constant reminder of the terrible catastrophe... and the Utopian era that had been lost forever.

Somehow, against all odds, Queen Azshara and her Highborne elite managed to survive the ordeal. Tortured and twisted by the powers they had released, Azshara and her followers were dragged down beneath the raging sea by the Well's implosion. Cursed — transformed — they took on new shapes and became the hateful serpentine naga. Azshara herself expanded with hate and rage, becoming a massive monstrosity, reflecting the wickedness and malice that had always hidden within her core.

There, at the bottom of the Maelstrom, the naga built for themselves a new city, Nazjatar, from which they would rebuild their power. It would take over ten thousand years before the naga would reveal their existence to the surface world.

Talk:Burning Legion#Second Invasion

For years, since their defeat at the hands of Malfurion Stormrage, the Legion had watched and waited for the moment to be right for a second attempt to conquer Azeroth. Kil'jaeden was given orders to plan the second invasion of Azeroth and was unwilling to take any chances on the Legion's success. He decided that a new force would be necessary in order to weaken the defenses of Azeroth before the Legion's main invasion force arrived.

The doom of Draenor

文件:Kil'jaeden.jpg
The Path to Corruption

Around this time Kil'jaeden discovered the world of Draenor and its two races, the shamanistic, clan based orcs and the peaceful Draenei. Of the two races, Kil'jaeden surmised that the orcs, a race seemingly bred as warriors, would be the perfect tool of the Legion. By bending the elder Shaman Ner'zhul to his will, Kil'jaeden was able to enact a series of events that would see to the enslavement of the orcs to the will of the Legion. Complete control was established when Kil'jaeden orchestrated a meeting between the orc chieftains and Mannoroth. At this meeting, the orcs were convinced to drink the blood of Mannoroth and thus cursed themselves to bloodlust and savagery. Kil'jaeden promised Gul'dan untold power in exchange for his utter obedience. The young orc became an avid student of demonic magic and developed into the most powerful mortal warlock in history.

Kil'jaeden, seeking to tighten his hold over the orcs, helped Gul'dan found the Shadow Council, a secretive sect that manipulated the clans and spread the use of warlock magics throughout Draenor. As more and more orcs began to wield warlock magics, the gentle fields and streams of Draenor began to blacken and fade. Over time, the vast prairies the orcs had called home for generations withered away, leaving only red barren soil. The demon energies were slowly killing the world.

First and Second wars ADP

The orcs attempted to invade Azeroth twice through the Dark Portal.[20][21] However, the natives of the planet formed together into an alliance led by the humans, fought back with unexpected determination and casualties were high on both sides. At the end of the Second War, the Alliance of Lordaeron had defeated the orcs and their homeworld of Draenor destroyed by Ner'zhul's attempt to escape into another dimension. The remaining orcs were rounded up and placed in various internment camps by the Alliance.

After the defeat of the orcs, Kil'jaeden determined to create a new force, one that would succeed where the orcs had failed. To this end he captured Ner'zhul and remade him as the Lich King. Trapping his essence in the Frozen Throne, a large block of ice, Kil'jaeden hurled the Lich King to Azeroth, where he crashed on the frozen continent of Northrend. The Lich King's new mission was to prepare Azeroth for subjugation through the release of a Plague of Undeath. Thus, the Scourge was born.

Third War

Where the orcs had failed the Scourge succeeded impressively. Within months the Eastern Kingdoms were in disarray. Each soldier or townsfolk who fell to the Scourge was reborn as an undead minion of the Lich King. Finally, the time for the Legion's return was nigh.

Servants of the scourge were able to summon Archimonde himself to lead the assault...with him came the myriad demons of the legion. The second invasion had truly begun. The forces of the Legion swept across the Eastern Kingdoms and soon reached the shores of Kalimdor, home of their old enemy, the night elves.

The Legion chose as its main goal the consumption of the World Tree on Mount Hyjal, which contained the essence of all life on Azeroth and granted immortality to the night elves. At the final hour, an alliance of humans, orcs, and night elves fought desperately to hold back Archimonde and the legion while Malfurion Stormrage performed a desperate druidic ritual upon the World Tree itself. Finally, Malfurion gave the signal that he was ready and the Legion was allowed to reach their goal...the World Tree stood exposed to Archimonde. As the demon embraced the tree, and began to feed upon its magics, Malfurion's spell took hold. The World Tree released all of its energy into Archimonde at once, destroying both the World Tree and the demon. The ensuing explosion destroyed the tree and laid waste to Hyjal summit. The Legion had been defeated once again, but at the cost of the night elves' immortality.

With Archimonde finally defeated, Kil'jaeden has assumed complete control of the Legion.

Aftermath of the Third War

An army of human, dwarves and blood elves arose, the New Alliance under the leadership of Lord Garithos and Kael'thas Sunstrider.[22] This New Alliance fought back against the Scourge and the Burning Legion. They managed to retake Dalaran[23] and fought against the undead in Silverpine Forest[24][25] and Alterac Mountains.[22]

Kalimdor

The Majority Satyr groups are still loyal to the Burning Legion and have stayed on Kalimdor waiting for the return of their dark masters. The remains of the Legion itself can be found in the region of felwood where demons of all varieties can be found, including a few corrupted species such a furbolgs. The Legion also has many still loyal orcish warlocks of the Burning Blade clan hiding in Durotar and even Orgrimmar itself.

Lordaeron

Although the New Alliance suffered a great loss with the blood elves, they continued fighting against the Scourge. However, they were not a serious threat to the Burning Legion. Rather, the dreadlords Balnazzar, Detheroc, and Varimathras who were in charge of the Scourge were impatient for orders from Archimonde and ensured that the Scourge was ready for action, ignorant of the death of their leader. Soon after, Arthas returned to Lordaeron's Capital City. He told the undead leaders that the city was now his and that he wouldn't require the dreadlords' services to watch over it. When Balnazzar retorted that the Scourge belonged to the Legion, Arthas replied that their masters had been defeated, and that the Burning Legion was "undone." He then tried to slaughter the dreadlords but they managed to escape and warn Arthas of their inevitable retribution.[23] Later, the dreadlords found out that the Lich King was weakening, and together with Sylvanas Windrunner planned to overthrow Arthas.[26]

Luckily for the Scourge, Arthas escaped the Capital City and Sylvanas's assassination attempt was thwarted by Kel'thuzad.[27] Soon after Varimathras invited Sylvanas to join the dreadlord's new order, Sylvanas however had no intention of losing her freedom again denied the offer and knew it was only a moment of time before she would be attacked. Using her sister banshees Sylvanas possessed Blackthorn, Mug'thol, Snarlmane, and possibly the Murloc Puddle Lord to bloster her forces and not only did she destroy the attacking undead, she even "turned" Varimathras to her side.[28] Soon after the future forsaken killed Detheroc and acquired an ally in the freed Garithos.[29]

The banshee and her forces laid siege to Balnazzar's base, which he had fortified within the city ruins. Balnazzar then found himself attacked from both sides by Sylvanas and Garithos. Though he was armed with demons and had made many threats, Balnazzar's forces were defeated.[25]

Sylvanas, Varimathras, and Garithos approached Balnazzar. Sylvanas ordered Varimathras to kill his brother as a testament of his loyalty to her. Varimathras was reluctant. Killing another nathrezim was forbidden but Sylvanas was adamant. Balnazzar was sure that Varimathras would never take that final step. He was wrong.[25] However, Balnazzar survived — Varimathras allowed his brother to fake his death in order to fool Sylvanas.[请求来源] Varimathras then killed Garithos on Sylvanas' orders.[25]

With all their enemies dead, Sylvanas made a proclamation to Varimathras. They would rule the Plaguelands as the Forsaken, and would stake out their own destiny, where none would get in their way.[25]

At some point Balnazzar killed and possessed Saidan Dathrohan's body and began using the Scarlet Crusade.[30]

Outland

详见:Magtheridon's Forces Magtheridon still ruled Outland after the Legion's defeat, but, with the help of the escaped blood elves, Illidan Stormrage stormed his citadel and claimed Outland for his own.[31] Although the pit lord was chained and his forces are now part of Illidan's forces, there are still numerous Legion strongholds over the planet and the Cabal, cultists of the Shadow Council, are trying to provide adventage to thier demon masters. The draenei are resisting to the Legion, even a group led by Akama had to join Illidan to defeat Magtheridon.

Stormwind

The Burning Legion in the Blasted Lands were under the command of Lord Kazzak. Thanks to the efforts of Razelikh the Defiler the Burning Legion blostered its ranks with Grol the Destroyer and his Dreadmaul Ogres, Lady Sevine, and Archmage Allistarj. This sect of the legion also includes Ilifar, the only death knight who sided with the legion during the scourge rebellion.

Attempted invasion

TBC 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:燃烧的远征

Through the Dark Portal

The march of the Legion

After Illidan's failure to destroy the Frozen Throne, Kil'jaeden sent forces to Outland to destroy him, however, Illidan's forces proved to be equally as powerful and the Legion has so far been unable to gain revenge. Kil'jaeden thus decided to trick the people of Azeroth into getting rid of Illidan in his stead. Led by Highlord Kruul, the Legion opened the Dark Portal again and sent troops into Azeroth. The Argent Dawn managed to hold the area surrounding the portal until reinforcements from the Alliance and Horde arrived.[32] After that, the Azerothian resistance pressed on and managed to drive the demons back into Outland where they fought at The Stair of Destiny.[3] Kil'jaeden's plan worked, and the Alliance and Horde would eventually kill Illidan for him.

The Alliance and Horde got to the middle of Hellfire Peninsula, where the Horde established Thrallmar[33] and the initial Expeditionary Force of the Alliance reinforced Honor Hold.[34] However, a Pit Commander and more Legion forces blocked the reinforcements of both factions, and they stood together to fight in The Stair of Destiny[33][34] for a long time.[3] Lieutenant General Orion sent an Horde adventurer for reinforcements of Thrallmar, after the notice General Krakork sent out what forces he could.[35] The Legion stationed dreadlords in Felspark Ravine, but the Alliance[36] and Horde defeated them, their imps and infernals.[37] The Alliance and Horde finally managed to destroy the portals defeating the Legion's forces by ground[38] and by air.[39][40][41] However the Burning Legion continued to produce fel reavers in Forge Camp: Mageddon, the Alliance and Horde detected this and sent adventurers[42] that defeated this force and destroyed the fel reavers.[43][44] After the defeat of the fel reavers they aimed Thrallmar with fel cannons, but both Alliance and Horde destroyed the cannons.[45][46] The final Legion's base, commanded by Warbringer Arix'Amal, still housed warp-portals from which they were drawing reinforcements, but the Alliance located the base[47] and both Alliance and Horde sent adventurers which destroyed the portals and defeated the Legion in Hellfire Peninsula.[47][48]

Activities in Outland

The Dark Portal being attacked by the Legion.

Doom Lord Kazzak was the commander of the Burning Legion in Outland, he resided in the Throne of Kil'jaeden.[36][37] Although the Burning Legion in Hellfire Peninsula was defeated, there was a presence through all other zones of Outland with the exception of Zangarmarsh.

In Terokkar Forest the Shadow Council was still active, there were many cultists, who were part of a branch called Cabal.

In Blade's Edge Mountains the Legion had accomplished several things:

In Netherstorm the main activities were of the blood elves allied with the Legion, the Kael'thas' forces, with mainly the Sunfury outside of Tempest Keep and other groups inside of it. The demons in the zone were led by the eredar Socrethar[61] and did several things:

Fury of The Sunwell

Kael'thas summons Kil'jaeden to Azeroth.

Kil'jaeden was not finished yet however, for he had found a new pawn to manipulate in Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider. After his defeat at Tempest Keep, and still blinded by his lust for power, Kael become an all too willing participant in The Burning Legion's next attempt to invade and conquer Azeroth. Kil'jaeden restored Kael'thas' health and power through demonic means and empowered many of his followers will fel energy. Kael'thas sent his new Felblood elves to Silvermoon, where they captured M'uru from Kael's own people and took him to the Sunwell. Kael'thas also discovered that the energies of the Sunwell still existed, in the form of the human girl Anveena, and she was imprisoned and taken to the Sunwell, with Kael hoping to use her energies to reignite the Sunwell, to both bring his new master Kil'jaeden into Azeroth, and to supply himself with a new font of limitless power. However, with the intervention of the blue dragonflight and mortal adventurers of Azeroth, Kael'thas was killed once and for all in the Magister's Terrace and Kil'jaeden's plans to enter Azeroth were foiled. Anveena sacrificed herself to weaken Kil'jaeden so that the mortal heroes battling him could finally defeat him and send him back through the Sunwell. After the battle at the Sunwell, Velen used what was left of M'uru's "body" to reignite the Sunwell, saving the blood elves from their addiction to demonic power and allowing them to continue to use the powers of the Light.

The royal coup

WotLK 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:巫妖王之怒
Putress oversees the destruction wrought upon the Wrathgate by the New Plague.

In the wake of the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate, it was revealed that Varimathras plotted his way into controlling a substantial part of the Forsaken faction, using them and his chief underling, Grand Apothecary Putress, to launch a surprise assault upon the combatants at the Wrathgate. This ambush resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Alliance and Horde soldiers, including famed Alliance hero Bolvar Fordragon. At the same time Burning Legion forces under the command of Varimathras successfully took control of the Undercity and nearly killed The Dark Lady herself.

He was eventually faced and defeated by Thrall, Sylvanas, and adventurers during Quest:The Battle For The Undercity (Horde), after which he was not seen again. During the battle, Varimathras made reference to "years of planning" (attempting to undermine Sylvanas) and the voice of an unseen "Master" was heard berating Varimathras for his failure to prevent the Horde party from reaching the throne room, after which point Varimathras entered the fray himself — where he was defeated.

While the Burning Legion was tactically successful in rekindling Alliance-Horde tensions, it ultimately failed in its strategic goal of re-summoning yet another Legion invasion. It remains unknown who the unseen "Master" was, but is presumably Sargeras.

Cataclysm

Cataclysm 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:大地的裂变

By the time of the Cataclysm, the Burning Legion's command structure was mostly wiped out, with only a few survivors and their masters' whereabouts unknown. The Burning Legion may have still been a devastating threat to the universe, however, though it had a weaker hold on Azeroth. With the devastation caused by the Cataclysm the Twilight's Hammer Cult were able to successfully take Darkwhisper Gorge from the Burning Legion. Despite this defeat the Legion was able to keep their holdouts in Felwood, Desolace and the Blasted Lands. Despite Balnazzar's defeat and the collapse of the Scarlet Crusade in Stratholme, the legion was able to keep a hold on the city through Balnazzar's new Risen army, which consisted of Scarlet Crusaders who were in a state of undeath. The Scarlets at Tyr's Hand had also fallen to this fate, securing the town for the Legion.

However, the denizens of Azeroth were not allowing the Legion to keep these areas in peace. In Desolace, the Cenarion Circle aided Khan Leh'Prah of the Kolkar clan in his quest to unite the centaur (Kolkar, Magram and Gelkis) and successfully launched an assault on Shok'thokar. In Felwood, the Emerald Circle and Cenarion Circle launched their own assaults on the Legion holdouts in the area. In the Blasted Lands, both the Horde and the Alliance secured the Dark Portal and sent adventurers into the Tainted Forest to end the Legion's hold on the region. Meanwhile, the Argent Crusade sent adventurers into both Tyr's Hand and Stratholme and claimed them for the Crusade.

While the legion tried to hold on to its bastions of power on Azeroth they were able launch an assault to reclaim Darkwhisper Gorge from the Twilight's Hammer that allowed them to require the Gates of Sothann.

Mists of Pandaria

MoP 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:熊猫人之谜

Wrathion suggested that the Horde and Alliance would have to unite to fight a greater foe that will come from beyond Azeroth. The image that he displayed while saying this shows Azeroth under bombardment by balls of green and yellow fire. This threat was confirmed to be the Burning Legion during the Chi-Ji portion of Quest:Celestial Blessings.

Warlords of Draenor

WoD 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:德拉诺之王
The sky will rain fire...the oceans will be filled with blood.... DRAENOR WILL BURN!

Instead of deceiving Ner'zhul into servitude like in the main timeline, Kil'jaeden went directly to Gul'dan to corrupt the orcs. However, due to Garrosh's interference with the timeline, Grommash and the orcs never accepted Gul'dan's offer. Insulted by Grom, Mannoroth attacked him, but the orcs were prepared for him, and they fired their cannons at Mannoroth. Before he could regain his poise, Grom lunged at him and buried Gorehowl deep into his skull, effectively killing Mannoroth. Gul'dan, and the Shadow Council, were captured by Grommash's Iron Horde and used to power the Dark Portal to take them to Prime Azeroth. Under Khadgar's leadership, the Alliance and the Horde successfully repelled the invasion, destroyed the Dark Portal, and freed Gul'dan and his lackeys.

With Kil'jaeden's failure to corrupt the orcs, Archimonde took full control of the Legion's operations on the alternate Draenor. As a result, the demons were less behind-the-scenes and more direct in corrupting the residents.

Exarch Othaar was one of those that had been lured by the demons to help in Draenor's destruction. Believing that Velen was leading their people to their doom, and promised by the Legion with great power, he swore fealty to them and transformed into the man'ari eredar, Socrethar, adopting a leadership role within the Sargerei. He later led the Legion's attack on Shattrath, and succeeded in taking over the draenei capital. Later on, with the help of the Alliance and Horde, Socrethar was killed and Shattrath was liberated.

Gul'dan on the other hand had been looking for ways to empower himself and the Legion. He sent Teron'gor to Auchindoun gather all the draeneis' souls to be used to empower the demons, and sent Cho'gall to Oshu'gun to subjugate the naaru, K'ure. Both of them betrayed Gul'dan and used the respective energies they were sent to gather to empower themselves. Thanks to adventurers employed by Khadgar, both were stopped and killed before they could wreak havoc.

Gul'dan later traveled to the Spires of Arak to find a frustrated and brooding Iskar. Gul'dan offered him a cure for Curse of Sethe, and power beyond reckoning. Frustrated over his failure to fully restore Terokk, over the Curse of Sethe, and his ever growing thirst for vengeance, Iskar gladly accepted Gul'dan's offer and became the first of the fel arakkoa. He later persuaded more cursed arakkoa to accept Gul'dan's offer and they swear fealty to the Legion. The Sethekk cult also joined Iskar's arakkoa.

Later on, the Iron Horde went into disarray due to their losses to the Alliance and Horde, causing many of the clans to leave Grom. Gul'dan appeared to Grom and taunted him for his constant defeats against the Alliance and Horde, and again offered him the Blood of Mannoroth. Grom refused and attacked Gul'dan, but was easily repelled with Gul'dan's magic. Kilrogg on the other hand gladly accepted his offer and became a fel orc. The rest of the Iron Horde followed suit, and Gul'dan effectively took control of them, turning Tanaan Jungle into the Legion's base of operations.

The third invasion

Legion 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:军团再临

详见:Third invasion of the Burning Legion

文件:Third invasion Fault Lines.jpg
The third invasion of the Legion, as seen in a vision by Magni Bronzebeard.

The third invasion[72] began when the Tomb of Sargeras was reopened, and the demons of the Burning Legion poured into Azeroth from the Felstorm, a horrific nexus of magic. Their full, terrifying might was fixed on summoning the Sargeras to Azeroth—and they had already located the key to his return.[73] This is the largest demonic invasion of Azeroth in the world's history.

The Legion Invasion attacked areas such as Dun Morogh, Azshara, Northern Barrens, Tanaris, Westfall, and the Hillsbrad Foothills. Azeroth's defenders rallied to repel the various assaults.

The Broken Shore was the source of this invasion, where the armies of Azeroth defeated the initial thrust of the invasion.[74] The Battle for the Broken Shore however, culminated in the Legion overrunning Azeroth's defenders and forcing them to withdraw. Many of the greatest heroes in Azeroth, such as Tirion Fordring, Vol'jin, and Varian Wrynn, fell in battle before the Legion or were mortally wounded. Some escaped, others went missing or were captured,[75] but many more died upon the Broken Shore.

In addition to directly attacking the planet, the Legion used more subtle means to try and subvert the defenders through their nathrezim agents. The newly-crowned Anduin Wrynn captured an assassin, in disguise as a Stormwindian soldier, that then tried to convince the king that he was weak and that his kingdom needed to align with them. Another appeared to the desperate Khadgar inside Karazhan in the guise of his old master, Medivh. In search of knowledge Medivh may have kept that could help, Khadgar was tempted by the demon to accept power that "Medivh" had supposedly stored away in a tome to empower another Guardian of Tirisfal, something the former apprentice admittedly desired that could make the Legion fear him. Khadgar recognized it was a trap to corrupt him and destroyed the tome. Both agents were destroyed and sent back to the Twisting Nether.[76]

Kil'jaeden himself was eventually killed inside the Twisting Nether after failing to use the fallen Avatar of Sargeras.[77] The Armies of Legionfall, the Horde and the Alliance[78] took the fight to Argus itself, joining with the Army of the Light already there.

Hierarchy

Sargeras is the leader of the Burning Legion. If missing, Kil'jaeden runs things in his stead.[2] Eredar serve as the Legion's overlords and strategists. Pit lords serve as generals and ground commanders.[82] Nathrezim are a step below pit lords.[83] Doomguard are four steps below nathrezim, serving as marines, captains, military leaders, and so on.[84] Terrorguards are close in rank and role to doomguard.[85] Felguard serve as rank and file soldiers.[82] The most powerful Burning Legion soldiers often carry an emblem of their rank and status within the demon army.[86]

Numbers

The number of demons in the Twisting Nethers is virtually infinite.[87] Though estimed in the millions they are able to reform in the Twisting Nether again and again.[4] However not all demons are part of the Buring Legion. During the War of the Ancients, Sargeras gathered at least one million demons.[88] Wendy Breezy estimed them to number in the millions.[4]

Trivia

文件:Legion card back.png
A card back themed after the Burning Legion in Hearthstone.
  • The Burning Legion was originally intended to be a playable faction in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
  • A map "mutation" called "Burning Legion" exists in the multiplayer of StarCraft II.
  • Originally the Legion's mission was described as being to destroy the universe and remake it without the underlying defect preventing true order.[1] In practice, the Legion scoured all life from the worlds it invaded, its components were cursed to roam the greater realms forever to consume the primal energies of magic to survive.[89]
  • The fact that some satyrs come from Xoroth as well as later appearance of alternate Shadow Council agents in the Legion expansion pack indicates that the Burning Legion has started using its mortal worshippers from Azeroth and Draenor in their effort for cosmic conquest.
  • In Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, the Legion card back was rewarded for achieving Rank 20 in Ranked Season 30, which took place during September 2016. The flavor text reads: "The Burning Legion attempted to invade Azeroth three times in the last 10,000 years. Fourth time's the charm?"
  • When demons of the Legion fall out of favor, their spirits are imprisoned within orbs and distributed to their mages and warlocks.[90]
  • According to Illidan, intimidation is the weapon of the Burning Legion rather than intelligence.[请求来源]

  80. 2015暴雪嘉年华 Dave Kosak的采访 “设计意图是,如果你在史诗模式下击败阿克蒙德,那么你是在扭曲虚空将他击杀的,这代表着他已经死透了。这是我们的意图。我们想解释来着,但是最终确实没有在游戏里体现,这是因为我们觉得没必要在游戏里解释。” "And the idea was if you played in Mythic and defeated Archimonde, you actually defeated him in the Nether and that he'd be dead dead for good. That was the idea that we played with. We tried to explain that and I don't know if... that certainly doesn't come across in-game because it's not necessarily explained in-game."
