Last week we talked about the Titans, and how they helped to form the World of Azeroth. Today we are going to take a deep dive into the Titan’s avatars; the beings they created to carry out their will, and eventually left behind when they returned to the stars.Read More
When Azeroth, the world of Warcraft, was young, the planet was tended to by the Titans, huge beings similar to Greek or Roman Gods. In fact they were actually referred to as The Pantheon. Their names were Aman’Thul, Eonar, Norgannon, Khaz’goroth, Aggramar, Sargeras, and Golganneth. Each had different powers and abilities that they used to shape the face of Azeroth. When they discovered the Old Gods corrupting Azeroth, fearing that their great size would hurt the planet-soul if they attempted to intervene directly, each Titan gave a portion of their power to the Titan-Forged, avatars they had created who lived on Azeroth. (and were much smaller)Read More
The Final episode of the rise and fall of Garrosh Hellscream starts where we last left off.......at his trial.Read More
Edwin VanCleef, the Classic Rogue legendary, you might be surprised to know, was one of the greatest human engineers in Azeroth history. Edwin was a master stonemason and, after the destruction of Stormwind, (the main human capital of the Alliance where King Varian Wrynn and Prince Anduin live,) by the orcs, in the first war, he was called upon to help rebuild. Such was his genius that he was able to rebuild the entire city in 10 years.Read More
Many people wonder how Thrall could have left Garrosh in charge, and why he didn’t see the danger when Garrosh had given every indication in the past of being a warmonger, and unfit to lead. Part of this mistake can be traced back to the very first origin of The Horde....Read More
Garrosh was among a group of orcs that contracted the Red Pox, he and the rest of the afflicted were quarantined and sent away from the rest of the clans to a place called Garadar. When the rest of the planet seemed to be dying because of the fel magic that corrupted everything, Nagrand was left untouched. So Garrosh grew up away from the war and slaughter that was to define his people in the eyes of Azeroth......Read More
Illidan and Malfurion, believe it or not, are twins. They are night elves that grew up together with Tyrande in the Kaldorei city of Suramar.
So Illidan and Malfurion and Tyrande all grew up together as kids, playing in the woods together, learning to hunt until they got old enough to each pursue their unique calling. Tyrande went to the Temple of Elune, the Goddess that the night elves worship, and became a priestess in the order of the Sisters of Elune. Malfurion was taught by the demigod Cenarius to be the first Druid and Illidan searched for his purpose in the studying of the arcane; magic. Illidan had a biiiiig crush on Tyrande but she only had eyes for Malfurion, and he didn’t even notice that Illidan also liked his girlfriend.Read More
Let me tell you a little bit about the Forsaken before we get to Lilian Voss, for those who never played WoW.
Originally Forsaken were those undead that became free of the Lich King’s control, so technically they were all former scourge killed by him, or the plague. Lady Sylvanas Windrunner is the leader of the Forsaken, which honestly is a little odd because she is formerly an elf, and all forsaken are human, but it makes sense if you know the story....Read More
The Black Knight/The Skeleton Knight
The Black Knight is a nod to the Monty Python Character of the same name. Blizzard loves putting pop culture references into their games especially World of Warcraft. You first meet him at a place called the Argent Tournament, something that the Grand Tournament in Hearthstone was roughly based off of. The idea was that in order to train and also weed out those unworthy of facing the Lich King, both the Alliance and Horde gathered and threw a tournament under the banner of the neutral Argent Crusade run by Tirion Fordring....Read More
