自他从上古之战的阴影中走出来后， 一些巨龙对他颇有微词。尤其是红龙军团，甚至他自己的蓝龙军团也出现了反对者。玛里苟斯认为凡人法师应该对艾泽拉斯的灾难负责。于是他决定用战争手段清洗那些“强盗”法师，包括达拉然的肯瑞托。阿莱克斯塔萨意识到局势已然失控，于是召集了龙眠联军来对抗玛里苟斯的“法师猎手”军团。 结束了魔枢的战事后，在红龙军团的帮助下勇士们突破到了玛里苟斯的密室并结束了他的生命。战争结束后，织法者的魔力也随之被剥夺。
Ysera and Alexstrasza would later come across the shriveled up corpses of two proto-dragons, including Malygos' old companion Tarys. A small and terrified purple proto-dragon insisted that Galakrond had devoured the dead dragons, which matched theories Malygos had expressed to the two sisters. They went to fetch Malygos so he could meet the purple dragon. After his arrival, the corpses stirred and attacked as undead. Alexstrasza, Malygos, and Ysera tore them apart.
Later, when Galakrond began devouring proto-dragons, Coros cut off Malygos and hid in a crevasse he had intended on using for cover. This left Malygos open as Galakrond's jaws surrounded him, though the quick actions of friend Neltharion and Nozdormu would save Malygos' life. Under the threat of Galakrond and the not-living, Malygos like all the other proto-dragons would recognize Talonixa as alpha, despite the fact that Malygos personally didn't trust her.
Malygos was disturbed by the favor that Talonixa showed Coros, as evidence by her letting him hunt with her, and feared nothing good would come of it. Later he was surprised to learn that Coros was encouraging Ysera's dream of peace with Galakrond and had used his influence to speak Talonixa and the others of her plans. While seemingly supporting her Malygos later learned that Coros used the meeting as a distraction so that he could slip away unnoticed. Ever distrustful of his rival Malygos quickly began to hunt him down to discover his intentions.
While tracking Coros down, Malygos was eventually assaulted by an undead proto-dragon, whom he managed to defeat, but was left with a bite mark that began throbbing. After the assault, Malygos caught scent of Coros and his band and found that they have attacked a member of Alexstrasza's family. There, he saw Coros and his followers ripping off pieces of flesh from a member of Alexstrasza's, and devouring it whole. After Coros and the other proto-dragons left, Malygos felt the urge to give chase, but found himself enticed by the ravaged corpse of a member of Alexstrasza's family. A hunger for something more than flesh was instilled inside Malygos, he craved the corpse's lingering life essence, but Malygos became repulsed at this craving, and flew as far away from the corpse as possible. Once he came back to his senses, he turned back to the path Coros' band had taken, but Malygos sensed that the wrongness that pervaded wherever Galakrond flew now tainted their scent. Hearing a rasping sound while in pursuit of Coros, Malygos followed it only to be attacked by two members of Coros' family, one of whom was sickened. While the sickened proto-dragon attacked with an almost mindless fury and almost killed Malygos, he left Malygos with number of wounds that caused the throbbing where Malygos was bitten to begin anew, causing the intelligent Malygos to enter a state of bloodlust, mercilessly biting and tearing at his attackers in retaliation. Yearning for the kill, he lunged at his second opponent and bit his throat, tearing almost half of it, then attempted to swallow it, but as he came to his senses, he disgorged it. Malygos came to realize that the bite from the undead had infected him, urging him toward the same foul course that Galakrond and Coros followed.
Horrified at himself Malygos stubbornly pushed on in order to discover what Coros was planning and bore witness to Coros' betraying the other proto-dragons to Galakrond. While Galakrond seemingly left, Malygos stayed hidden, which ensured his survival as Galakrond quickly returned and devoured Coros and his fellow cohorts. After ensuring that Galakrond had left Malygos quickly took to inform the rest of the proto-dragons about Coros' betrayal. However when he arrived he discovered a schism had broken army the gathered proto-dragons as they had discovered that those bitten by the not-living acted like Galakrond. After a brief argument Talonixa appeared to agree to Ysera's plea to spare the bitten, on the condition that they be quarantined for the safety of the others. Agreeing to this condition Ysera watch the bitten dragons be herded into a canyon and then watched in shock as Talonixa collapsed it, eventually killing all those trapped inside. It after this event that Ysera would notice that Malygos had been bitten on his leg and would keep silent about it.
Malygos later found himself as part of Talonixa's proto-dragon army that moved to combat Galakrond. Before the proto-dragon army engaged their enemy in battle Malygos devised a plan in which the army would fly higher in the air where Galakrond could not fly. Quickly informing Talonixa of his plan Malygos was relived that to note that she was considering it. However hearing his sigh Talonixa took it as sign of Malygos' satisfaction of her bowing to his wisdom and engaged Malygos in battle. While Nozdormu and Neltharion were quick to help Malygos, Talonixa was helped by her two lieutenants. Despite Nozdormu encouraging a retreat, Neltharion openly called for Malygos to fight Talonixa and became the new alpha an action which enraged Talonixa and brought more of her followers to join her, which caused the trio to flee high into the air.
Using his not-living Galakrond was able to lure Talonixa's army into a trap where he erupted from the ground when the army was in position and swiftly shattered it. After killing Talonixa, Galakrond was unable to devour the fast of the army due to the actions of Malygos, Nozdormu, and Neltharion. As Malygos broke off to find Ysera and Alexstrasza, he found them in the company of the Watcher Tyr who he briefly met before, and Ysera attacked him when he tried to kill the bound undead proto-dragon. As Tyr spoke with Malygos Ysera freed the undead proto-dragon in order to make it see reason, an action which could of killed her if not for Malygos' timely intervention. After destroying the undead Malygos briefly succumbed to the hunger for flesh, but Ysera was able to recall him to his senses and Malygos was then cured by Tyr. Tyr then proposed hunting Galakrond, and decided to stand by the proto-dragons this time, revealing a war hammer from beneath his cloak. Lastly he pulled out an octagonal artifact, moving it to the three proto-dragons as it glowed, with the promise that he was "trying to ensure some future."
Ysera would witness Galakrond returning outside the cavern, chasing Neltharion and Nozdormu. Malygos and Tyr moved to the entrance to witness their battle, and Tyr was overjoyed at the proto-dragons' coordination. Alexstrasza, Malygos and a now full-sized Tyr joined in the battle. Temporarily stunning Galakrond with his hammer, Tyr ordered the proto-dragons to flee as he stayed to battle the monster.
An unknown time later, Tyr met with the five proto-dragons, informing them that Galakrond was sleeping in a mountain range to the north and that it was the perfect time to attack. He told them to eat before doing so, and just before they left Tyr held the octagonal artifact before Nozdormu and Neltharion as he had to the others before. After doing so, Tyr vanished in the blink of an eye.
Tyr and the proto-dragons met up near Galakrond's slumbering place, which Kalecgos would later note in his visions was nowhere near Galakrond's Rest. Save for Ysera, they all began the battle against Galakrond, who had grown larger and even more mutated than before. Throughout the battle, the octagonal object on Tyr's belt glowed ever brighter. When Galakrond suddenly expanded in size without warning, Tyr's hammer could no longer harm him. With a flap of wings, Galakrond called up a massive wind that scattered the fighters. Ysera suddenly appeared and Galakrond attempted to devour her, but Tyr silenced his laughter with a mighty blow from his hammer. Tyr pulled Galakrond to the ground and began to mercilessly beat him even as Galakrond began mutating further - as he began to resemble a true dragon.
In the battle, Tyr's hammer and the strange artifact were knocked free from his person. Tyr reached to grab the artifact, just as Galakrond's massive maw came within range and the monster clamped down on Tyr's hand. Malygos moved to save Tyr, examining the bloody stump as Galakrond roared in triumph and grew ever larger. An unconscious Tyr was brought to a frozen lake by the proto-dragons, only to vanish from the shore. After being attacked by two not-living Ysera and the others found they could not find Tyr where they left him, concluding that some beast must have taken him for food.
After recuperating Malygos and the others decide to hunt down Galakrond in order to kill him once and for all or die trying. It was during this time that Malygos feeling burdened by leadership role cast upon him gave it to Alexstrasza, after she took charge in response to his unvoiced question. Malygos, along with the others would be stunned to learn that Galakrond had began to devour the not-living in order to feed his hunger and shortly after would engage in battle with the behemoth. During the battle Malygos would work closely with and the pair would ultimately kill Galakrond after they forced a boulder down his throat.
After killing Galakrond, Malygos and the others were approached by two other watchers, who revealed that they had taken Tyr to help him. Agreeing to protect Azeroth with his friends the two watchers were joined by two others and the titans acted through the keepers to transform Malygos and the others into the Dragon Aspects, where one of their first acts was to encourage the rumor that Titans created them from Galakrond. This was done to prevent the truth about Galakrond from leaking to ensure no one would follow in the behemoth's footsteps.
When fallen Keeper Loken instigated the Winterskorn War, fought between the Winterskorn vrykul and the earthen, Tyr and his allies fought on the earthen's side. However when Tyr realized that they could not win against the Winterskorn clan alone he called upon the Dragon Aspects for aid. The noble Aspects grew enraged upon seeing so many dead titan-forged. Their fury only deepened when they learned that proto-dragons had been enslaved. Without hesitation, the Aspects took wing and unleashed their powers on the Winterskorn's iron ranks.
Much as they had done in the fight against Galakrond, the aspects worked in unison to overwhelm and the vrykul army. Alexstrasza held the Winterskorn at bay with towering walls of enchanted fire. Malygos drained the magical essence that fueled the constructs and golems, rendering them useless. He also shattered the enchanted snares that bound the proto-dragons and set the beasts free. Neltharion raised mountains from the earth to corral and contain the vrykul and their giant masters. Lastly, Ysera and Nozdormu combined their powers to create a spell that would bring a decisive end to the conflict.
Ysera and Nozdormu enveloped the Winterskorn in a cloying mist that caused them the titan-forged to fall asleep. These incapacitated creatures were then locked away in tombs cities across northern Kalimdor. They would not know the peaceful slumber of the Emerald Dream. Rather, they would languish in a timeless, unconscious slumber for thousands upon thousands of years.
During The War of the Ancients when Queen Azshara and her Highborne opened a portal in the Well of Eternity to allow the Burning Legion access to the world of Azeroth, the Great Aspects congregated at the lair of Alexstrasza to discuss the coming invasion and what part they should play in defending the world. Neltharion proposed that to end the invasion of demons, the dragonflights should create a weapon with which they could eradicate the demon armies.
Neltharion persuaded Malygos to aid him in convincing the other Great Aspects to lend a part of their power to create the weapon, the Dragon Soul. The artifact was a simple unassuming golden disc created by Neltharion. The Dragon Soul was to be used as a weapon against the demons. All the Great Aspects and their flights contributed a bit of their power in creating the Dragon Soul with the exception of Neltharion. Through the disk, Neltharion was able to magically take control of all other dragons including the other Great Aspects.
During one of the final battles the Great Aspects called all of their flights together and flew toward the battle where the Ancients had already perished and only night elves were holding back the Demons. With ease, a crazed Neltharion, now known as Deathwing, destroyed both demons and night elves by using the Dragon Soul—now known as the Demon Soul—against them. The other Aspects tried to stop Neltharion. Malygos' flight surrounded Deathwing in an attempt to take the Demon Soul from him. With a single command, they were engulfed by the magic of the Demon Soul and were pulverized. Malygos was also terribly injured, both mentally and physically, but did not suffer the same fate as his flight.
With his flight nearly annihilated, Malygos began to lose his mind. He felt deep guilt for his role in convincing the other 巨龙们 to infuse their powers into the 恶魔之魂. He traveled to his lair in Northrend, where he hid for millennia. Feelings of remorse paralyzed him. During the ten thousand years following the War of the Ancients, he was rarely seen by the other Aspects. His body was a caricature of his former self, almost always being in the form of an insect-like creature; a thin body surrounded by frozen ice, almost skeletal.
During the Second War, Alexstrasza was kidnapped by the Dragonmaw orcs and taken to Grim Batol. Her younger consort Korialstrasz, known as Krasus when disguised as an elf, later visited Malygos to seek his aid in an attempt to free Alexstrasza. Although Malygos initially refused, Krasus convinced Malygos to assist him by revealing that Deathwing was still alive and that Deathwing had indirectly led the Dragonmaw orcs to find the Demon Soul. Krasus finally said that Alexstrasza could use her powers over life to grant Malygos a new dragonflight. Seeing an opportunity to avenge the death of his flight, see their resurrection, and redeem himself, Malygos agreed to rejoin the world and confront Deathwing.
After Deathwing was defeated and the Demon Soul destroyed, Malygos seemed to reclaim the vitality of his former self. Rhonin the mage destroyed the artifact using a scale of Deathwing and with a spell, all the magic and power of the Demon Soul was transferred back to the other Great Aspects, returning their full power to them. Although still a sparsely populated dragonflight, the blue brood grows slowly, giving hope to Malygos.
After sensing some great power of Sunwell in Lordaeron, Malygos sent young Kalecgos to investigate instead of an elder. Tyrygosa soon departed for she feared he is in danger. After their quest with the Sunwell was done, Malygos learned what happened from Tyrygosa.
Tyrygosa learned in Outland that nothing can save the Nether dragons unless an extremely powerful source of arcane power can revitalize them enough to free themselves. Tyrygosa, Kadavan, and Zzeraku open a dimensional rift to Azeroth and bring a group of enthralled Netherwing dragons to the Nexus where they absorb its magical energies. Yet Zzeraku and the Nether dragons grow mad with power, and frustrated with everyone they've ever encountered trying to use them, decide to be masters of their own destinies and conquer Azeroth for themselves. Tyrygosa tries to reason with Zzeraku, telling him that by following Deathwing's path, Azeroth will rise against them and lead to their destruction. Though conflicted with Tyrygosa's sincere concern for his kind, Zzeraku believes that only by gaining power can he safeguard his people. The Netherwing dragons attack the Blue Dragonflight, and in the midst of the chaos, Malygos awakens from his slumber. In his insanity, Malygos misinterprets the Nether dragons arrogant proclamations of being the embodiment of the Nexus and absorbs them and their power. The dragon's Nether-warped physiology began to affect the Spell-Weaver himself, ultimately helping him regain some of his lost sanity.

Malygos, with clearer eyes, took note of the large number of mortal spellcasters running around Azeroth, recklessly using arcane magic, and worried they may bring the Burning Legion to Azeroth in force again, as the Highborne once did (one of his last few memories before going mad). Thus he deemed the lesser races' use of magic as unacceptable, and he proceeded to declare war on all magic users, particularly the Kirin Tor of Dalaran. Dalaran therefore moved to Northrend, as a capital for both the war against the Lich King, and the Kirin Tor's fight with Malygos. The red dragonflight - keeping Alexstrasza's promise to Rhonin after the events of Day of the Dragon - stepped up to defend the mortals from their cousins' crusade against spellcasters.
The Arcanomicon was given to Malygos ages ago by the titan Norgannon, the Arcanomicon has been continuously updated and revised by the blue dragons over the long years of Malygos' seclusion. Malygos planed to use the Arcanomicon to locate and tap into the ley lines and divert the magical powers that course beneath the earth to his home base in Northrend, the Nexus. The consequences had been violent, dangerous, and deadly. The world's crust had splintered, and the resulting unstable rifts had torn the very fabric of the magical dimension known as the Twisting Nether. Malygos' misguided attempts to “correct” the perceived misuse of arcane magic had to be halted - whatever the cost. Dragon had fought against dragon in the bitter Nexus War, and it had been the Life-Binder herself who had reached the agonizing decision that Malygos — not long recovered from millennia of insanity — had to be destroyed. Alexstrasza had taken her flight and allied with the magi of the Kirin Tor. With all that was at stake, the remaining flights had agreed to join the reds in their bitter task. The alliance of dragons became known as the Wyrmrest Accord.
A number of Kirin Tor mages decided to help the blue dragonflight and Malygos transformed them into mage hunters.
What Malygos did not know was how much damage his plan would wreak if implemented fully. While the Pantheon had told the Dragon Aspects many things, what they did not tell them was that Azeroth held a world-soul, a dormant titan. Malygos' campaign had upset the equilibrium of the world, sparking natural disasters from Northrend to the southern tips of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Unless something was done, these disasters would spiral out of control and cause irreparable harm to Azeroth's world-soul.
After the magi of Dalaran had elevated their city into the skies of Northrend and began to stabilize their place, Malygos had ordered the blue dragonflight to attack them. Malygos' followers eager to put an end to the mortals' reckless use of magic carried out his will and assaulted the city even as magi such as Aethas Sunreaver and Modera spearheaded the defense of Dalaran by creating a massive shield over the city. Despite treachery from within, the magi of Dalaran were able to push back the blue dragonflight, but not before they resolved to crush the Kirin Tor once and for all.
As Coldarra is inaccessible without flying mounts, players are sent there on the back of a red dragon from NPCs located at Amber Ledge. On Coldarra, players meet Keristrasza, who sends them on a quest to build a trap for Saragosa, Malygos' consort. Keristrasza burns Saragosa's body at the culmination of the quest line, infuriating Malygos. Malygos descends upon the area and uses his magic to freeze Keristrasza and put her under his control. She is then forced to become his new consort and subsequently becomes a boss within the Nexus.

As a young proto-dragon, Malygos was very prideful of his abilities. He proudly declared his intelligence, and looked at more animal-like proto-dragons with contempt. It was not just talk, either, as it was Malygos who found a connection between the shriveled proto-dragon corpses and Galakrond.
Following the Great Sundering, Malygos aided in the creation of Nordrassil. He also left many of his surviving dragons in the caverns of Mazthoril. Brann Bronzebeard speculates that this was his last sane act.
Malygos, Lord of Magic, is said to have created magic and spells. His command of magic is quite impressive, rivaling that of a demigod, although he does not aspire to such power. While physically he is not as powerful as some of the other Aspects, Malygos counters this disadvantage with his phenomenal command of magic.
Before the War of the Ancients, Malygos was described to often appear with an amused expression on his face. While physically dragons cannot smile, it appeared he often walked around with a smirk. He is said to have had a sense of humor and an optimistic personality, enjoying using magic and illusions to entertain audiences.
Like most of his kind, Malygos is a solitary creature who avoids contact with others. He dwells in Northrend, in a lair filled with some of the greatest magical artifacts known to exist. He spends his days studying magic, refining his abilities, and studying the various planes of the multiverse both remotely and in person, while his few remaining children scour the world for ancient artifacts and repositories of arcane power.
Malygos does not seek out combat; and although he and his dragonflight are still routinely hunted by black dragons, he avoids their kind if at all possible. He protects his lair and himself with illusions and misdirection. Those who discover his home are encouraged to depart through a variety of means; Malygos takes direct action only as a last resort. When he does fight, he engages spellcasters first, using his breath weapon and other abilities to sweep spells from their minds.
- "It is the weapon like no other! It must be like no other."
- "That obscenity should never have become reality. And as I've become instrumental in encouraging its creation, 'tis only fair, old friend, that I erase it!"
- "He didn't impart his own power, didn't impart his own! Tell him, Ysera! Tell him how, after the demons were defeated, he turned on us! Used our own power on us!"
- "Such a pleasure to see you Queen of Life! And you too, my fair dream!"
- "Give the Timeless one more time? How droll! I will not let dour Nozdormu leave without pressing him on that jest!"
- "I lost much - too much! But you, you who call yourself Krasus, you who once also wore the form of dragon, you lost all, too!"
- "Much to babble about, much to babble about!" (to Nozdormu)
- "I have lost much in my time, mortal, too much in fact. Your lesser intellect could not possibly begin to understand the pain that infernal disk can impart on its victims, Now begone from my realm before I show you a piece of what I have suffered!"
