This page concerns information regarding the version of Velen present in the alternate timeline on Draenor, the subject of the Warlords of Draenor expansion. For the current-timeline Velen who now resides in Azeroth, click here.
Differences from the Original-Timeline VelenEdit
It is assumed that both the original and this alternate version of Velen share a common history up to the moment Garrosh Hellscream saves his father Grom from dying at the hands of Mannoroth, as seen in the Warlords of Draenor opening Cinematic.
Encounters on DraenorEdit
Velen initially aids Alliance players when they reach Shadowmoon Valley, helping them establish their Garrison at Lunarfall. He continues working with players as they launch attacks on the Shadowmoon Clan and Ner'Zhul.
After players help remove barriers which were preventing Velen's prophetic abilities, they share in one of his visions where he witnesses the final attack on Karabor. In the vision, Karabor falls to the Iron Horde with the assistance of a dark Naaru named K'ara (also referred to as The Dark Star). In the vision, all of the Alliance and Draenei forces are killed including Velen himself.
Velen decides to make a preemptive strike against Ner'Zhul, in an attempt to stop him summoning "The Dark Star" and to avert the consequential destruction of Karabor. Upon arrival at Light's Fall, the adventurer had already engaged the orc. Despite a desperate plea, Ner'Zhul (now a being of darkness) elected to become one with K'ara. Facing the destruction of his people and with no other option, Velen passes Yrel the Mark of the Naaru before striding towards the great beam of darkness. Upon contact, Velen is destroyed, his sacrifice cleansing K'ara and averting destruction.
