Are you wondering just what in the heck is going on with all of the characters being Death Knights now (and what’s the deal with the lore inconsistencies)? Then Blizzard has a series of online comics that do absolutely nothing to answer any of those...




How do you deal with utter confusion in new games? The Blizzard Watch leveling stream spent some time this week playing Versus AI matches in Heroes of the Storm, and I had literally no idea at all what I was doing until the very end. I spent most of the time playing Malfurion desperately trying to keep people healed, before switching to Muradin and finally...

Know Your Lore: The Old Gods and the Sundering The Pantheon made the only decision they could rightfully make when they chose to imprison the Old Gods. The death of Y’shaarj proved that trying to remove the others would only further endanger and possibly kill Azeroth’s world-soul — and that was the last thing the Titans wanted. But in imprisoning the Old Gods, the...

Maiev Shadowsong
Know Your Lore: The fate of Maiev Shadowsong We’ve talked about Maiev Shadowsong before, but we haven’t really discussed her role in Legion. It’s a role which raises as many questions as it answers. Both Maiev and Jarod Shadowsong show up in the expansion. Maiev features in the Demon Hunter starting zone, as well as appearing in Val’sharah. But a lot of the...

Know Your Lore: Fandral Staghelm For players just starting out with World of Warcraft when it debuted in 2004, Archdruid Fandral Staghelm was an intriguing mystery. Malfurion Stormrage was nowhere to be seen, and Fandral appeared to be running the show in his place. A few things were made blatantly clear right off the bat: Fandral didn’t care for Tyrande...




Know Your Lore: Tyrande Whisperwind She was born in Suramar over ten thousand years ago. She grew to adulthood never expecting to be more than a simple priestess of Elune, the moon goddess of the Kaldorei. Her childhood friends the Stormrage brothers both sought unusual paths, but Tyrande was content to be what and who she was. A servant of...

Know Your Lore: Jarod Shadowsong and the War of the Ancients Sometimes, greatness is revealed in hesitation. Jarod Shadowsong never sought to be a leader. Younger brother to Maiev Shadowsong, Jarod grew to adulthood during the period just before the War of the Ancients, and while his sister was a powerful and ambitious priestess of Elune (and in line to become High Priestess) Jarod was a...



Know Your Lore: The Emerald Dream What was Azeroth like before the Titans arrived? What did it look like before the rise of the Troll empire, the dawn of the Night Elves, or the destruction of the Well of Eternity? While most creatures on Azeroth have absolutely no idea, the Druids do — and they can visit that ancient vision of...

Know Your Lore: Night Elves, High Elves, Blood Elves, and the Nightborne All Elves on Azeroth today date back to the ancient Kaldorei who rose to power before the Sundering. These Elves have fragmented over time, each choosing a different path. Yet all are Elves, descendants of those same beings who found the Well of Eternity in the darkness of ancient Kalimdor and who mastered its power...

Know Your Lore: Maiev Shadowsong The huntress is nothing without the hunt. And Maiev Shadowsong may not have started out as the huntress we know today, but she wholeheartedly embodies the spirit of vengeance itself — and when she at last exacts that vengeance upon one quarry, you can be certain she will find another. Some call her mad, these...

Know Your Lore: Illidan Stormrage Illidan Stormrage is one of the most well-known figures in Warcraft lore, although the majority of his story took place long before World of Warcraft — he was first featured back in Warcraft 3. However, his origins go all the way back to the beginning of Azeroth’s tumultuous history over ten thousand years ago, during...

War of the Ancients
Know Your Lore: The Legion and the War of the Ancients A couple of weeks back we took a look at the origin of Sargeras and the Eredar. This week, we pick up with Sargeras' first assault on Azeroth, the War of the Ancients. This conflict changed the face of the world forever, splitting the primeval continent of Kalimdor into four pieces (that we know of) -- modern Kalimdor, Northrend, the Eastern Kingdoms and Pandaria.
