Know Your Lore: The making of Varian Wrynn Kings are born like anyone else. They don’t come into the world ready to wear a crown or bear the weight of it.

Know Your Lore: Genn Greymane and Gilneas “Never take a man’s hand, son…’tis always better to stand tall on your own. It is what separates the great from the meek.” Perhaps it was old King Archibald Greymane that made Genn Greymane into the man he would become, or perhaps it was Gilneas itself that molded the Worgen leader. Stubborn, arrogant, and proud,...

Know Your Lore: Darius Crowley, Lorna Crowley, and Gilneas Lord Darius Crowley likely never meant to be a hero. If he’d had his way, he probably would have preferred a world in which he lived out his life on the lands he claimed as his own, caring for his people and his daughter Lorna. But the world had different plans for Darius Crowley, and...

Know Your Lore: Genn Greymane A king in exile is still a king, and King Genn Greymane is nearly the living personification of his lost nation — at times arrogant, willful, tenacious, and filled with a bestial fury that may be held in check, but never truly leashed. Genn’s actions during the Second War proved his intransigence, and the aftermath...
