Notes

  • Sargeras' Battlecry summons  The Twisting Nether which is a permanent minion and cannot be affected or targeted by any means, except Sargeras' abilities.
    • All of Sargeras' abilities depend on The Twisting Nether, and as such, if Sargeras is not played but summoned, its abilities will be usable but they will do nothing without The Twisting Nether in play.
  • Any friendly Twisting Nether is enough for Sargeras' abilities to work, even if it was summoned by a different copy of Sargeras.[1]
  • No matter how many Twisting Nethers are in play, Sargeras' abilities only trigger once.[1]
  •  To the Void! does not destroy minions, but rather removes all other minions from the game.[2]
  •  Inferno! only triggers once. It does not replace any future Imps summoned from the Twisting Nether.[3]
  •  Legion Invasion! only affects demons summoned from the Twisting Nether on later turns. It will not buff any that are currently in play.[4]
  • In the case that multiple copies of Sargeras or The Twisting Nether are summoned during the game, the following rules apply:
    • Sargeras' abilities don't work if there are only enemy portals available (e.g. by copying an enemy Sargeras with  Faceless Manipulator). There must be a friendly Twisting Nether on the board.
    • If there are 2 friendly copies of Sargeras and 2 friendly Twisting Nethers in play, both copies of Sargeras will prioritize their own portal, and will not affect the other one.
    • If there is one Sargeras and 2 friendly Twisting Nethers in play, the Sargeras will only affect the one that it summoned.
    • If there are 2 copies of Sargeras and only one friendly Twisting Nether in play, both copies of Sargeras will affect the same portal.
  • Prior to Patch 27.4.0.185749, Sargeras could also interact with enemy Twisting Nethers. This is no longer the case.

Lore

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Sargeras (pronounced "SAHR-gair-ahs") is a titan and the creator and leader of the Burning Legion. He was once the champion of the Pantheon, chosen to defend the worlds the titans had ordered. However, while he once served as a guardian and protector, he later set out to destroy all world-souls and life in the universe, and undo what the titans had strived for ages to achieve. His actions and their effects essentially made him one of the main antagonists — or as Chris Metzen called him, "the big, mega bad guy" — of the Warcraft franchise, and he served as the main antagonist of Legion.
Like all titans, Sargeras was born from a world-soul maturing within a planet in the Great Dark Beyond. He was the mightiest warrior of the titan Pantheon and originally possessed the title "The Defender" and was the "noblest of all". Like the rest of his kind, he was altruistic and just, unable to conceive of pure evil. When the chaotic demons, spawn of the  Twisting Nether, began to threaten the Pantheon's work of bringing order to worlds in the Great Dark, Sargeras was sent to battle them. Sargeras continued defeating the disorganized and incompetent demons with ease, but he also soon discovered that some demons had begun wielding the dark energies of the Void. The Defender also suspected the existence of malevolent beings far more powerful than mere demons who sought to influence the physical universe hidden behind the veil of the Void. The presence of these beings troubled Sargeras, but he nonetheless continued his work.
To his dismay, Sargeras soon discovered that the demons he had defeated simply returned to the Twisting Nether to be reborn in new bodies and continue to torment the worlds of the Great Dark. The Pantheon grew concerned about this development and the increase of demonic activity, and so sent the inexperienced titan Aggramar to aid Sargeras in battle. Aggramar proved a quick study and soon earned Sargeras' admiration, and became the warrior's trusted lieutenant. The two fought shoulder to shoulder against the endless demons of the Nether. This allowed Sargeras to more closely study the nature of the Nether, and by learning how to manipulate the chaotic realm's magical energies, he created a prison world known as Mardum to contain the demons he had defeated (though in Mardum, the demons were not idle; a nathrezim named Ulthalesh, in particular, ruled the pocket dimension with an iron fist, plotting his vengeance). Demonic invasions became increasingly rare, and together, the two titans soon brought peace to the cosmos.
Sargeras and Aggramar eventually agreed to go their own separate ways in order to protect several parts of the universe at the same time, allowing them to more effectively combat the demons. It was during this time that Sargeras learned about the Void Lords and discovered their plans. Coming across a world that had been completely infected by monstrous aberrations known as Old Gods, the titan ruthlessly interrogated a conclave of nathrezim demons who dwelled on the black world. From them, Sargeras learned that the void lords had sent the Old Gods out into the cosmos to infect any worlds that housed titan world-souls, and if they succeeded, the world-soul would be twisted into an unspeakably dark creature that not even the Pantheon could stand against: a Dark Titan. Enraged at this discovery, Sargeras cleaved the planet in two, instantly killing the nascent titan it housed. He then immediately returned to the rest of the Pantheon to tell of his discovery, but they chastised him for his rash action, insisting that they might have been able to purge the world-soul of its corruption without killing it. Sargeras tried to convince the other titans that what he had done was right, and that the universe needed to be purged of life - which, in his mind, could have been already corrupted by the void lords - in order to prevent the risk of a world-soul becoming corrupted and opening the way for the void lords (in his mind, even a lifeless universe was better than one dominated by the Void, for he argued that if life had once taken root in the Great Dark on its own, perhaps it would do so again). Eventually realizing that the others would never see things the way he did, Sargeras stormed off, and never returned.
