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Burning Legion(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]

第一次入侵

详见:上古之战
燃烧军团入侵艾泽拉斯.

许多年以前(距离第一次大战 10,000年前)[19] 由于上层精灵永恒之井的不断滥用和实验,最终,引起了燃烧军团对艾泽拉斯的注意. 黑暗泰坦希望用他的巫术和强大的法术加快军团对艾泽拉斯的远征. 但他自己也很清楚,如果没有一个足够承载他强大力量的传送通道,他将要花费数个世纪的时间到达艾泽拉斯. 就如同他远征阿古斯一样, 萨格拉斯尝试接触这些上层精灵,并利用他们的傲慢来达成自己的目的. 萨维斯是第一个响应萨格拉斯号召的上层精灵. 对力量极度渴望的萨维斯希望能尽快通过萨格拉斯的介入得到艾萨拉女王的注意. 黑暗泰坦向萨维斯承诺会保护他的暗夜精灵女王,以及她那深不可测的力量, 并且允许他将卡利姆多改造成他想要的天堂. 萨格拉斯仅仅要求艾萨拉和她的追随者们召唤他的代表来到艾泽拉斯,以便他可以给这位上层精灵一直想要的力量.[20]

由于对萨格拉斯的迷恋, 艾萨拉女王以及她的下属使用永恒之井的能量,将军团的仆从带入到艾泽拉斯. 如潮水一般涌出的恶魔卫士冲出了艾萨拉的宫殿, 一路屠杀所有他们看到的暗夜精灵,除了他们的上层精灵盟友. 这些恶魔士兵由毁灭者玛洛诺斯, 犬神哈卡,和污染者阿克蒙德统帅, 在死亡和毁灭的浪潮中 ,军团席卷了整个暗夜精灵帝国. 炽热的地狱火撕裂着天空,如雨点一般无情的落下,摧毁着暗夜精灵的城市, 成千上万个嗜血的末日守卫和贪婪的地狱犬将卡利姆多的丛林化为一片片不知名的绿色余烬. 战争,就像没有人预见到一样,赫然降临到艾泽拉斯.

由一位精灵贵族库塔洛斯·拉文凯斯所领导组成的暗夜精灵抵抗军抵抗着燃烧军团猛烈的进攻. 这只抵抗军最坚定的捍卫者玛法里奥·怒风, 以及他的法师双胞胎兄弟, 伊利丹, 还有两兄弟都深爱的美丽女祭司, 泰兰德·语风. 即使这只抵抗军在与军团的战争中节节败退,但暗夜精灵们也取得了他们的成果. 在早期的抗争中,玛法里奥给予了军团以及他们的上层精灵盟友一次最关键的反击.在翡翠梦境的深处, 他对萨维斯释放出了他的德鲁伊自然法术,并击败了萨维斯.

尽管在这场战斗中玛法里奥英勇的给予了燃烧军团沉重的一击,但更多的恶魔通过艾萨拉手下的上层精灵们的传送门涌入到了艾泽拉斯.他们把目标放在了艾泽拉斯的居民身上,并将这些居民转化为一种新种恶魔,以此壮大他们的力量.而第一个受到这种转化的,就是令人可憎的萨维斯.萨格拉斯转变了这位战败的精灵的身体,将其变成一个拥有锯齿状的角和蹄的扭曲恶魔面貌.这些新生的恶魔即是后世所称的萨特,这标志着萨维斯将永远服务于燃烧军团,在萨格拉斯的指令下,萨维斯开始向他的上层精灵同僚们散播诅咒,同样的将这些上层精灵转变为新的萨特.[21]

随着军团数量的不断壮大和上古之战的进展,玛法里奥意识到,仅仅只有暗夜精灵的顽强抵抗是无法阻止军团的无尽大军的.他说服了泰兰德和伊利丹陪他前往海加尔山附近的静地,月光林地,寻求塞纳留斯的援助.这位伟大的半神同意召集强大的荒野众神们一同抗击燃烧军团,但是这些荒野之神性格古怪,虽然他们同意共同抗击军团,但是他们却表示习惯于单独作战.因此在他们采取行动所用的时间,是一种没有与军团见面的宝贵奢侈享受.

随着荒野众神的集结,玛法里奥也没有闲下来,他要抓住一切可能,他呼吁艾泽拉斯上的巨龙与他一同保卫艾泽拉斯.由生命的束缚者阿莱克丝塔萨带领,巨龙们在他们的上古议事厅龙眠神殿中举行了会议,探讨该如何阻止燃烧军团的入侵.巨龙之中,大地的守护者耐萨里奥提出了一个方法.他说服他的其他守护巨龙的同伴们牺牲自己的一一部分力量,并将这些力量注入到由耐萨里奥打造的一件非凡的神器—巨龙之魂中.耐萨里奥声称,有了这件武器,我们将可以把燃烧军团彻底的从艾泽拉斯上抹去.

在燃烧军团与暗夜精灵盟军的战斗中,五大守护巨龙极麾下的巨龙军团对燃烧军团发起了最后的反击.大地的守护者耐萨里奥将巨龙之魂所有的力量都释放了出来,巨龙之魂强大的威力彻底的毁灭了燃烧军团极大多数的恶魔.然而不为人知的是,耐萨里奥早已因为上古之神的低语而堕落,所以不久后,耐萨里奥就将巨龙之魂的目标转向暗夜精灵以及他的巨龙同胞们.耐萨里奥突如其来的背叛给予了猝不及防的巨龙军团致命一击,而蓝龙军团是伤害最深的,耐萨里奥几乎杀死了所有的蓝龙,在整个艾泽拉斯生死存亡的时刻,他却谋害了艾泽拉斯最伟大的守护者之一.耐萨里奥将巨龙之魂重新命名为恶魔之魂,并称自己为死亡之翼.

死亡之翼的背叛给了暗夜精灵盟军一次可怕的打击,而更为糟糕的是,在这时,伊利丹却神秘的失踪了.不为人知的是,伊利丹的失踪不会是偶然,在看到两兄弟都心爱的女祭司泰兰德投入到玛法里奥的怀中,他毅然决定走出哥哥的阴影.当伊利丹像泰兰德坦述自己对泰兰德的爱时,泰兰德拒绝了他,并告诉伊利丹自己一生的挚爱是他的哥哥玛法里奥.随着这痛苦的拒绝后,邪恶的思想日夜折磨着伊利丹,挥之不去.伊利丹之所以受到如此痛苦的思想折磨,正是因为萨维斯所使用的黑暗法术,萨维斯利用这个法术微妙的扭曲了伊利丹的思想并且煽动起了他的绝望.充满仇恨以及不满的伊利丹离开了玛法里奥和他的暗夜盟军,他要主宰自己的命运,于是,他加入了燃烧军团,并得到了萨格拉斯的青睐.以自己的生命为赌注,伊利丹接受了萨格拉斯赐予的力量,并在后面会用这种新的形态去偷取死亡之翼的神器巨龙之魂,并将其交付给与燃烧军团结盟的艾萨拉女王一派的上层精灵,让他们利用巨龙之魂强大的力量在永恒之井的中心位置为燃烧军团军团开启一扇巨大的传送门[22]

在这段时间里,苏拉玛的上层精灵看守着他们的城市,与上层精灵结盟的军团恶魔—狡诈的纳斯雷兹姆恶魔种族在这座富饶的城市里执行着军团的计划:在这里进行实验,创造一支亡灵军队,得以在苏拉玛的艾露恩神庙(萨格拉斯之墓)深处为军团创造第二个传送门.大魔导师艾丽桑德利用创世之柱封印了萨格拉斯之墓,为了避免外面的纷争,艾丽桑德同时也制造了一个巨大的屏障遮蔽整个苏拉玛,让苏拉玛消失在世人眼中,并与世隔绝起来.[23]

随着军团猛烈的攻势,暗夜精灵盟军不断的败退,但是艾泽拉斯的凡人并未因此放弃抵抗,由加洛德·影歌带领的土灵牛头人熊怪、以及一部分由达斯雷玛逐日者带领的反对艾萨拉的上层精灵,和荒野众神组成的联军依然在奋力对抗着燃烧军团.由艾泽拉斯凡间生物组成的军队在辛-艾萨莉与燃烧军团展开了最后的殊死搏斗.暗夜联军犹如暴风雨般的攻势攻向了残破的暗夜精灵首都,冲向了看似无穷无尽的燃烧军团.这场战斗所付出的牺牲是无法估量的.成千上万的恶魔降临,但即使如此,艾泽拉斯的子民也没有放弃自己的土地,依然也有无数的保卫者勇猛的抵抗着燃烧军团.每牺牲一位荒野众神,军团都因此遭受巨大的打击.随着这些来自大自然最纯粹的造物的一个一个的倒下,联军的优势也开始消失,但是倒下的荒野众神并没有直接死去,燃烧军团的恶魔利用邪能的力量使这些荒野众神臣服于他们的黑色利刃之下.每牺牲一位荒野众神时,海加尔山山峰的森林因他们的逝去失色颤抖,风因他们的倒下呼啸着哀伤.

随着这场盛况之战爆发在首都艾萨拉之时,玛法里奥和泰兰德带领了一部分小队来到了永恒之井边上.他们希望能够取回巨龙之魂以防止军团会使用这件神器强大的力量而造成的无法想象的后果.玛法里奥与他的小队加入到了伊利丹的计划中,这个背叛了暗夜盟军的人声称自己当初加入军团其实是一个计划,伊利丹想通过学习军团的知识更加的了解军团.虽然玛法里奥也对此表示十分的怀疑,但由于伊利丹给他带来了关于艾萨拉的计划的情报,所以玛法里奥接受了伊利丹的援助,伊利丹告诉玛法里奥他在永恒之井的传送门正在不断扩大为一个巨型传送门,一个足以将燃烧军团的缔造者黑暗泰坦萨格拉斯传入到艾泽拉斯的传送门[24]艾萨拉女王正期盼着他的降临.黑暗泰坦那巨大的影子正不断的接近永恒之井的水面,艾萨拉女王正准备集结她最强大的手下,将他们的魔法能量集中在一起,创造出一道足够让萨格拉斯进入艾泽拉斯的传送门.

玛法里奥知道,无论有再多的部队,再多的人手也不可能抵挡的住萨格拉斯无尽的力量,他明白只有一条路可以阻止萨格拉斯的到来———摧毁永恒之井.在成功偷取到巨龙之魂后,玛法里奥运用这件神器的力量成功打断了上层精灵的法术,并切断了燃烧军团与艾泽拉斯之间的联系.因咒术被扰乱从而导致军团与艾泽拉斯之间的联系分崩离析,也造成了永恒之井的能量极不稳定,萨格拉斯和他大部分的燃烧军团因永恒之井崩溃而爆发的能量被逐回了扭曲虚空.

由此产生的灾难性的爆炸撕裂了大地,黑暗遮蔽住了天空.这场天崩地裂永远的改变了艾泽拉斯的面貌,留下了不可磨灭的痕迹,由于传送门的坍缩,一部分燃烧军团的残余被困在了艾泽拉斯,但他们重新集结在可怖的萨拉恩身边,并企图击垮这群刚刚经历过天崩地裂而重新巩固起来的新暗夜精灵,但最终,萨拉恩以及他所带领的军团余党在萨特之战被彻底击败.

Talk:Burning Legion#Second Invasion

自燃烧军团败在凡人英雄玛法里奥·怒风的手上过去了许多年后,军团并未因此放弃,他们一直都在观察并等待着一个绝佳的时机以实施他们的计划——第二次入侵.基尔加丹制定了第二次入侵艾泽拉斯的宏大计划,并发誓要不遗余力让军团完成这次远征.因为上一次入侵的失败,他意识到这一次的入侵不能直接像第一次入侵一样的明目张胆,因此他觉得,军团有必要添加一些新的力量.他决定去寻找一股能够在军团主力准备入侵之前,可以有效削弱艾泽拉斯上的防御力量的新力量,或者说,一个种族。

德拉诺的毁灭

基尔加丹,这位狡诈的军团首领在宇宙中不断寻找新的力量以实现他可怕的计划,终于,在一个被称为德拉诺的世界上他寻找到了两个本地种族,信奉萨满教义的兽人和爱好和平的德莱尼人。 他观察到兽人这个种族有着尚武的天性,他们善于培育优秀的兽人战士,因此他认为,兽人非常适合作为军团入侵的工具。由于年长又具有极高威望的兽人萨满耐奥祖屈服于基尔加丹, 使得基尔加丹能够制定一系列的计划让兽人变成军团所奴役的工具。当基尔加丹策划了一场兽人酋长与玛洛诺斯的会议时,燃烧军团已经实际掌控住了兽人。这场会议里,没有一个兽人拒绝军团的"恩赐",并全数饮用了玛洛诺斯之血,然而,兽人们并没有意识到这是军团的陷阱,他们因此变的野蛮嗜血并且极度渴望战斗与杀戮。与此同时,基尔加丹向古尔丹许诺用无法想象的力量换取这位兽人绝对的忠诚。于是,这位年轻的兽人疯狂的学习恶魔魔法知识,成为了历史上最强大的凡人术士

基尔加丹想尽快把兽人召集起来并入麾下,于是他帮助古尔丹建立起暗影议会,这是一个十分神秘的组织,他们将巫术和恶魔法术遍及德拉诺,并在背后操纵着整个兽人氏族。随着基尔加丹计划的进展和暗影议会的行动,越来越多的兽人开始学习使用术士的魔法,由于暗影议会的不断扩大,恶魔巫术到处遍及,德拉诺原有的生态遭到了破坏,广阔的田野和溪流褪去了生命的姿态,逐渐变黑。兽人世代为家的大草原逐渐枯萎,只剩下红色贫瘠的土壤。恶魔的能量正在慢慢的腐蚀毁灭这个世界。


黑暗之门的开启第一次战争第二次战争

兽人意图穿越黑暗之门(地理)并征服艾泽拉斯[25][26] 然而,出乎意料的是,兽人们却遭到了这个世界上的原住民——人类这个种族所领导的联盟的拼死反击,双方都为这场战争付出了惨痛的代价。在第二次战争末期,洛丹伦联盟击败了兽人部落,而与此同时,兽人们的故土——德拉诺却因耐奥祖的逃脱计划遭到了毁灭。而剩下来的兽人被联盟围捕并关押在不同的看守所

兽人的入侵计划失败后,基尔加丹决定创造一股新的势力并希望不会像兽人一样犯下同样的错误。为此,他抓住了耐奥祖并让他成为了巫妖王。基尔加丹将耐奥祖的灵魂困在一块巨大的冰块之中,并将之投掷到艾泽拉斯,巨大的冰团撞击在诺森德广阔无垠的雪原之上,形成了冰封王座。基尔加丹赋予巫妖王新的使命——为军团日后征服这个世界的计划,让他在艾泽拉斯大陆上散播亡灵瘟疫,随着瘟疫的不断传播,一只由亡灵组成的新势力——天灾军团诞生了。


第三次战争

不同于兽人,天灾军团取得了决定性的胜利。仅仅几个月之内,东部王国便沦陷在天灾军团手中。无论是生前英勇抗击天灾的战士,还是手无寸铁的平民,天灾大军都毫无人性的将其屠杀殆尽,并将他们复活成不死亡灵成为巫妖王无尽大军中的一员。随着天灾的不断胜利,燃烧军团降临的时刻也越来越近了。

天灾军团能够召唤出阿克蒙德——燃烧军团的首领,他将带领军团无尽的恶魔大军来宣告艾泽拉斯的末日。于此,军团的第二次入侵才算真正的开始。阿克蒙德和他的燃烧军团横扫了整个东部王国,并很快的就将目标放在了卡利姆多上,那里生活着军团一万年前的仇敌,暗夜精灵。

军团的主要目标是海加尔山上的世界之树,它连接着艾泽拉斯上所有的生命,它是暗夜精灵长寿永生不死的力量源泉。而在这最后一刻,由人类,兽人,和暗夜精灵组成的联军拼死拖住阿克蒙德和他的军团的进攻,在这期间,玛法里奥·怒风在世界之树上举行了一次德鲁伊式的仪式,他将最后的希望寄托在了这个仪式上。最后,玛法里奥做好了反击的准备,当军团即将达到他们的目标时,当世界之树在阿克蒙德面前不过几厘时,玛法里奥将会发出信号,发出最后的反击。随后这个大魔头开始攀上世界之树,并开始吸食世界之树其中的魔法能量,玛法里奥的仪式开启了。世界之树释放出了自身所有的能量,这股力量立即注入了阿克蒙德的身体里,能量产生的剧烈爆炸,将这个大魔头和世界之树本身一并摧毁。接踵而至的摧毁了整个海加尔山的山峰。燃烧军团再次被击败,但是为此精灵们也付出了永生不朽的代价。

随着阿克蒙德的战败,基尔加丹成为燃烧军团的实际掌控者。

第三次大战之后

在大元帅加里瑟斯卡尔萨斯·逐日者的领导下,一支由人类矮人血精灵所组成的新联盟崛起了。[27]这只军团抗击着天灾军团和燃烧军团。他们设法将达拉然重新夺回来[28]并清除着银松森林的天灾部队[29][30],夺回奥特兰克山。[27]

卡利姆多

卡利姆多上大多数的萨特依然效忠于燃烧军团,他们坚信有朝一日他们的黑暗主人会再度回到这个世界。军团的残余势力盘踞在费伍德森林,其中也包括一些已被军团腐化的物种,例如熊怪。即使燃烧军团失败的痕迹还刚印在这个世界上不久,军团仍有许多忠诚的火刃氏族的兽人术士间谍潜藏在杜隆塔尔,有的甚至隐藏在兽人的主城奥格瑞玛里。





洛丹伦

尽管新联盟遭受到失去血精灵盟军叛逃的损失,他们依然坚持奋力与天灾军团作战。即使如此,他们对于燃烧军团来说并没有多大的威胁。相反,负责掌控天灾的三名恐惧魔王巴纳扎尔德塞洛克瓦里玛萨斯正急切的渴望着他们的主人阿克蒙德的命令以确保天灾军团做好足够的准备,但他们对阿克蒙德在卡利姆多战败阵亡的消息并不知情。不久后,阿尔萨斯回到了洛丹伦王国的首都。他告诉这些亡灵狡猾的首领们现在洛丹伦为自己所有并且他再也不需要这些恐惧魔王们对他的监视了。当巴纳扎尔反驳阿尔萨斯说天灾是属于燃烧军团的时候,阿尔萨斯告诉了他军团的主人已经被打败了,失去了首领的军团现在已是一盘散沙。于是阿尔萨斯尝试抹杀掉这些恐惧魔王,但这些狡猾的生物成功的逃离了阿尔萨斯的追杀并声称他会得到应有的报应的。[28] 后来,这些恐惧魔王们发现巫妖王的力量正在不断衰弱,于是他们联合希尔瓦娜斯·风行者并计划除掉阿尔萨斯。[31]

幸运的是,克尔苏加德成功的阻挠了希尔瓦纳斯暗杀阿尔萨斯的行动,使得阿尔萨斯成功逃离了洛丹伦王城。[32] 不久之后,瓦里玛萨斯盛情邀请希尔瓦娜斯加入到恐惧魔王中。然而希尔瓦娜斯并不打算放弃她从巫妖王手上挣脱出来而得到的自由,并且她很清楚,恐惧魔王是十分狡诈的生物,也许在将来的某一天,他们很有可能会背叛自己。希尔瓦娜斯利用她女妖姐妹们的能力成功的 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.[33] Soon after the future forsaken killed Detheroc and acquired an ally in the freed Garithos.[34]

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.[30]

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.[30] 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.[30]

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.[30]

At some point Balnazzar killed and possessed Saidan Dathrohan's body and began using the 血色十字军.[35]



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 冰封王座, 基尔加丹 sent forces to 外域 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 魔王库鲁尔, the Legion opened the 黑暗之门(地理) again and sent troops into Azeroth. The Argent Dawn managed to hold the area surrounding the portal until reinforcements from the Alliance and 部落 arrived.[36] After that, the Azerothian resistance pressed on and managed to drive the demons back into 外域 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[37] and the initial Expeditionary Force of the Alliance reinforced Honor Hold.[38] 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[37][38] for a long time.[3] Lieutenant General Orion sent an Horde 冒险者 for reinforcements of Thrallmar, after the notice General Krakork sent out what forces he could.[39] The Legion stationed dreadlords in Felspark Ravine, but the Alliance[40] and Horde defeated them, their 小鬼s and 地狱火s.[41] The Alliance and Horde finally managed to destroy the portals defeating the Legion's forces by ground[42] and by air.[43][44][45] However the Burning Legion continued to produce 魔能机甲s in Forge Camp: Mageddon, the Alliance and Horde detected this and sent adventurers[46] that defeated this force and destroyed the fel reavers.[47][48] After the defeat of the fel reavers they aimed Thrallmar with fel cannons, but both Alliance and Horde destroyed the cannons.[49][50] 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[51] and both Alliance and Horde sent adventurers which destroyed the portals and defeated the Legion in Hellfire Peninsula.[51][52]

Activities in Outland

The Dark Portal being attacked by the Legion.

Doom Lord Kazzak was the commander of the Burning Legion in 外域, he resided in the 基尔加丹的王座.[40][41] 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 暗影议会 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 索克雷萨[65] 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 冒险者s 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, 维伦 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, 大药剂师普特雷斯, to launch a surprise assault upon the combatants at the Wrathgate. This ambush resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Alliance and 部落 soldiers, including famed Alliance hero Bolvar Fordragon. At the same time Burning Legion forces under the command of Varimathras successfully took control of the 幽暗城 and nearly killed The Dark Lady herself.

He was eventually faced and defeated by 萨尔, 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 斯坦索姆, the legion was able to keep a hold on the city through Balnazzar's new 复生者 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 黑暗之门(地理) and sent 冒险者s 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

拉希奥 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, 基尔加丹 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, 玛诺洛斯 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 血吼 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 卡德加'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.

大主教奥萨尔 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 麦格尼·铜须.

The third invasion[76] began when the 萨格拉斯之墓 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.[77] 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.[78] 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 提里奥·弗丁, 沃金, and Varian Wrynn, fell in battle before the Legion or were mortally wounded. Some escaped, others went missing or were captured,[79] 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 卡德加 inside Karazhan in the guise of his old master, 麦迪文. 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.[80]

Kil'jaeden himself was eventually killed inside the Twisting Nether after failing to use the fallen Avatar of Sargeras.[81] The Armies of Legionfall, the 部落 and the Alliance[82] took the fight to 阿古斯 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.[86] Nathrezim are a step below pit lords.[87] 末日守卫 are four steps below nathrezim, serving as marines, captains, military leaders, and so on.[88] 恐惧卫士s are close in rank and role to doomguard.[89] Felguard serve as rank and file soldiers.[86] The most powerful Burning Legion soldiers often carry an emblem of their rank and status within the demon army.[90]

Numbers

The number of demons in the Twisting Nethers is virtually infinite.[91] 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 上古之战, 萨格拉斯 gathered at least one million demons.[92] Wendy Breezy estimed them to number in the millions.[4]

轶事

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 魔兽争霸III:混乱之治.
  • 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.[93]
  • The fact that some satyrs come from 克索诺斯 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 法师s and 术士s.[94]
  • According to Illidan, intimidation is the weapon of the Burning Legion rather than intelligence.[请求来源]

  84. 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."
