Eredar

Know Your Lore: Velen and Kil’jaeden The Eredar were a race of highly skilled masters of magic, renowned for their skills throughout the Great Dark Beyond. They built an entire advanced, shining civilization and lived peaceful lives…until the leader of the Burning Legion came.

Know Your Lore: Demons and the Fel Where Light and Void clash, chaos is born: the chaos of the Twisting Nether, birthplace of the Fel. This magic was literally birthed by annihilation when Light and Shadow came into terrible contact with one another. Fel magic is of entropy, of destruction, of the utter destruction of that which makes life possible. Void magic...




Know Your Lore: The Flight From Argus There were once a people called the Eredar, a people with unparalleled mastery of the arcane. Gifted, intelligent, physically powerful, they created a near utopia on the planet Argus. Over twenty five thousand years ago, they ceased to exist. In their place were two divided factions. Most of the Eredar became Man’ari, the “Unnatural Ones”...

Know Your Lore: The Fall of Argus, part two Last week we talked about the distant past, when the former Mage Thal’kiel of Argus attempted to destroy the Duumvirate that ruled his people, the Eredar, and rule as a tyrant. As a Warlock, Thal’kiel became known as the first of the Man’ari, a word that meant ‘unnatural ones’ in the Eredar language. But thanks...

Know Your Lore: The fall of Sargeras The fallen Titan unleashed the Burning Legion and sent them across infinity, devouring worlds like cosmic locusts, rendering them lifeless. A nearly unstoppable army of demons under his banner finds worlds and unmakes them, and so far only one planet has held out against the onslaught of Sargeras and his Burning Legion. But who is Sargeras? What motivates this being? What drives him to seek the unmaking of the entire universe?




Know Your Lore: The Future of the Draenei One of the things I've loved this expansion is playing a draenei in it. Getting to see what Draenor looked like before the orcs committed genocide on the draenei has been awesome, and the draenei story in Shadowmoon Valley and Talador (including Auchindoun) was one of my favorite parts of any expansion. In fact, some of my disappointment with the game's max level content has been a lack of continuation of that very story. We got to see Yrel become an Exarch, and that I was happy about, but aside from that I've really felt like we've missed out. I wanted a raid where I helped the Sha'tar retake Shattrath, for example. I wanted to get to see what's going on up at Farahlon. I'm hopeful we'll still get to see this stuff, because for me all the quality story beats in Warlords of Draenor have been the draenei

Know Your Lore: Draenei They are the last uncorrupted remnant of the eredar people. They are refugees hunted across time and space by the Burning Legion, spearheaded by those who were once their brothers and sisters, the man’ari eredar. Led by Sargeras’s chosen disciples Kil’jaeden and Archimonde, the Legion will not rest until they are destroyed. Not merely dead...
