Khadgar

Know Your Lore: Ranger-Captain Alleria Windrunner The name Windrunner is a well-known one on Azeroth. Sylvanas is easily the most recognized. After all, she was Ranger-General of Silvermoon, then leader of the Forsaken, and now leader of the entire Horde. Her younger sister Vereesa built a name for herself as well, though not quite as prominent. Vereesa avoided Kael’thas’ teachings and...

Bugged on your way to Argus? Log on your main in 7.3 If you’re having trouble taking a character to Argus, you may be experiencing a bug related to completion of the Broken Shore scenario. Namely, if you’re trying to go on a character that skipped the Broken Shore, you may not be able to properly continue. The solution seems to be to log on whichever character...




Know Your Lore: High General Turalyon Every now and again, you run into mentions of larger-than-life characters in WoW. Major lore figures that held considerable significance in Warcraft’s story, but don’t actually appear in game. More often than not, it’s because these characters are deceased — Anduin Lothar, Terenas Menethil, Uther the Lightbringer, the list goes on. But one of the...

Here is your spoiler heavy Kil’jaeden end fight cinematic Spoilers ahoy. We’ve talked about Tomb of Sargeras spoilers before, and this is a big, big spoiler, so only read on if you’re willing to be spoiled.

Know Your Lore: What we don’t know yet about Legion We’re well into patch 7.1 and 7.1.5 will be coming soon, along with the Nighthold raid which will reveal the final fate of Illidan Stormrage. As of right now, though, all we have is a cinematic that is chock full of spoilers to go on and no idea what happens after that. I’m not going...

Know Your Lore, Tinfoil Hat Edition: Khadgar and the Pillars of Creation Fun story – I’ve always been a little wary of Khadgar, particularly after the way he just conveniently popped up at the beginning of Warlords. His actions in that expansion always felt a little off. Part of it was how well he knew Gul’dan – and vice-versa – despite not really having any kind of...




Role Play: Horde roleplay in Legion The Alliance may have a lot to think about plot-wise this expansion, but the Horde has just as much going on – and none of it is particularly happy. Horde roleplay in Legion mirrors the Alliance. After all, the Burning Legion isn’t just a threat to one faction or the other; it’s a threat to...

Know Your Lore: The fate of Turalyon and Alleria The last time anyone mentioned Turalyon and Alleria, it was their son Arator back in The Burning Crusade’s Outland. We met him in Honor Hold in Outland. There, he seeks out Danath Trollbane for any news of his father, but Danath has nothing to tell him. But now, at long last, we know where Turalyon...



Role Play: Alliance roleplay in Legion Now that Legion is out, it’s pretty clear that the Alliance have a lot to think about while combing the Broken Isles. Obviously the Burning Legion has returned, and Azeroth itself is in danger. That’s going to be a big concern to any roleplayer, whether Alliance or Horde. But for Alliance roleplay, it isn’t just...

Black Dragonflight
Know Your Lore: Remnants of the Black Dragonflight Wrathion has been mysteriously absent. For a dragon so utterly concerned with the Burning Legion’s return in Mists of Pandaria, this is more than a little suspect. At the same time, one has to wonder what the apparent last known survivor of the Black Dragonflight has been up to while we’ve been off on Draenor....

The reward for completing the Kirin Tor Emissary’s quests, the Kirin Tor Chest, has a chance of containing a Strange Humming Crystal. The Crystal begins a quest to slay enemies...

Know Your Lore, Tinfoil Hat Edition: This isn’t the Legion we’ve fought before This one line from Genn Greymane as I ran the Broken Shore has stuck with me ever since I heard it. What did he even mean? Does barely participating in the Second War really count as having ‘fought the Legion’? And his nation hid behind a wall during the Third War, so it’s not like...

Know Your Lore: Recommended reading for Legion The Warcraft universe and its lore is pretty vast and expansive. Let’s face it, we’re looking at twenty years worth of games and written lore here, which is a crazy amount for any one person to process. There’s also been a lot of novels, graphic novels, short stories and comics released over the years as...

Know Your Lore: Who is Jaina Proudmoore? A couple of years ago, I wrote about Jaina Proudmoore’s progress as a character after the loss of Theramore and the events in Mists of Pandaria. At the time, I was happy that the character was seeing some kind of movement – something beyond hoping for diplomacy and peace. It seemed as though Jaina was...

Legion invasion ramps up with new quest, more invasion zones The Burning Legion isn’t content to wait until Legion’s release at the end of the month: today we have a new quest chain and extra invasions to deal with. When you next log on, not only will you find demon invasions are hitting three zones every two hours — the better for alt leveling, I say,...

Know Your Lore: Khadgar’s destiny Once, when just a young lad of 17, Khadgar of the Kirin Tor — apprentice to the great Guardian Medivh — found himself facing down his mentor. In truth, Medivh may have been a Guardian at one point in time, but he’d since been taken over by Sargeras, the leader of the Burning Legion, consumed...
