In time, her southward expansion angered the Eldwurm Slyrak who, in his terrible rage, melted Yulsaria's armies with his endless flame before conquering the Frozen Witch herself.

The wretched sound grew and grew into a deafening roar before a hellborn claw reached through the burning tear into the world.
