How did Azshara get the tidestone?

  1. Queen Azshara is a character from the online multiplayer World of Warcraft first released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. This fourth edition of the game is set in the realm of Azeroth.

    Azshara was a powerful mage wielding great skill unrivaled by most. Her beautiful appearance along with her charisma and charming facade allowed her to manipulate and use many to her advantage over the years. Holding an interest and love for the finer things in life, she ordered for large bejeweled castles and halls to be constructed. She held many loyal guards and servants who readily gave their lives for their queen. In reality, the Highborne Queen did not care for their lives and kept them around merely for their usefulness to her. Consumed by her greed and lust for power, the former night elf experimented with the Well of Eternity until finally using it to expand her powers and triggering an event known as The Great Sundering. Taking the help of the Old Gods the Highborne are saved from drowning in the Great Sea created through the Well. They make a deal and are transformed into Naga (or water serpents) so they may survive. Azshara then continues to rule underwater.

     

    Later on, during the War of the Ancients, she destroys the Tidestone of Golganneth to stop those conspiring against her. How she got the tidestone is not an impressive story. In Patch 8.2 it is shown that while the other forces are busy attempting to break into the Eternal Palace, Azshara, being the cunning queen that she is, takes advantage of the broken wards of the stone and sends a few of her strongest led by Tidemistress Athissa to Azsuna to claim the tidestone which had been left barely guarded. So the Queen ends up with the Tidestone of Golganneth which she later uses to part the sea and protects Nazjatar against the Alliance and Horde attackers.
