Well Of Eternity

Know Your Lore, TFH edition: The genesis of Titans Last week Blizzard released the three part Alleria and Turalyon audio drama, A Thousand Years of War. One line in it grabbed my attention. When Alleria made mental contact with Argus’ world-soul, it revealed to her its origin. In that revelation we learned that before it slumbered within Argus, the light that made up the...

Know Your Lore: The future belongs to Azshara Right about now, we can be forgiven for focusing on the Burning Legion and the threat they pose to Azeroth and the universe. Even if Sargeras was defeated utterly, the vast army of demons at his disposal will likely remain a threat. Although Archimonde and Kil’jaeden are seemingly disposed of, this vast worlds-destroying force is...




Know Your Lore: Who killed Chromie? One of the weirder little mysteries from patch 7.2.5 was the Deaths of Chromie scenario. Not because of the scenario itself — a wild tangle of twisting timelines and a race to prevent Chromie’s inevitable demise. No, the bigger mystery is the question of who, exactly, was trying to kill the Bronze Dragon. It’s a...

Know Your Lore: The Arcan’dor, the Fal’dorei, and the Withered History is a funny thing on Azeroth. There are certain broad tendencies that repeat themselves time and again — the Old Gods attempt to rise, the Legion attempts to invade, empires clash and fall. But one thing that can’t be said is that it repeats, exactly. Azeroth has seen quite a lot of history, tens...

Know Your Lore: The “Gift” of Flesh For an expansion about the rising threat of demonic hordes, Legion has spent a lot of time focusing on other dangers. Dangers like the corruption of the Emerald Dream, and strange whispers from agents of the Old Gods. Between ominous discussions with talking Artifact weapons and the horrors of the Emerald Nightmare, it’s become clear...

Know Your Lore: Highborne, High Elves and their history They are a vanishing people. Once they ruled much of the northern Eastern Kingdoms from their seat of power, the ancient and glorious city of Silvermoon, in the heart of Quel’Thalas. But then came Arthas and his armies of undead, the Scourge he wielded to flay the forest bare and leave a miles long scar...




Know Your Lore: Azeroth Azeroth is special in the Warcraft cosmos — it’s unique in more ways than one, and so are its inhabitants. It’s not just the origins that make the planet stand out, however. Azeroth has, over the course of time, experienced a number of shifts and tectonic turmoil that might have destroyed any other planet. But...

Know Your Lore: The Nightwell, the Sunwell, and the Well of Eternity What is Azeroth? As we’ve learned so far in Legion, the planet itself is the home of a Titan world-soul – essentially, a baby Titan. Unfortunately, that world-soul hasn’t been left to grow in peace. Between the infestation of the Old Gods and multiple Legion attacks, Azeroth has always been in a state of constant...



Know Your Lore: Ancient Kalimdor and the rest of Azeroth We all know that World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 will be out next month, and a preview of said book gave us a lot of interesting new details about Azeroth.  So today, let’s talk about Chronicle.

Know Your Lore: The Kaldorei’s origins and beginnings Many races have at one time or another created vast empires on Azeroth. The ancient Aqir, ancestors to the Qiraji and Nerubians (as well as the more distant Mantid), waged war against the Troll empires of the Gurubashi and Amani. The Mogu carved an empire out of the southern reaches of ancient Kalimdor, with support...

Know Your Lore: Xavius, The Nightmare Lord He wanted to set the world on fire, but not to destroy it. Xavius, today known by such epithets as The First Satyr and The Nightmare Lord, was once among the highest of the Highborne, the acknowledged masters of Kaldorei society, second only to Queen Azshara herself. A prodigiously talented and skilled wielder of the...

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?
