As a member of the Bronze dragonflight, Chronormu – or Chromie, as she likes to be called – knows when and where she’ll meet her own demise. Problem is, there’s someone out there who’d like to change that particular timeline. But why?
On the Lore Watch podcast recently, the discussion fell to Gul'dan in Harbingers and how and why the Legion reached out to him.
Warlords of Draenor is coming to an end, and with the next expansion's announcement, we see that the story will continue right on into the next...sort of.
What does Wrathion want with Draenor, why is he there to begin with, and why did he ally with Kairoz and help Garrosh Hellscream escape? I think the answer to that question may very well have been staring us in the face all along, and it's been staring us in the face since the end of Mists of Pandaria.
What was Kairoz looking for?
You know, we spend a lot of time talking about the various Warlords of Draenor as they're presented in the latest expansion's version of history. Lords of War was supposedly Maraad's tales of these old warlords, but the stories were pretty specific. And in some cases -- like Kilrogg's vision of his death -- they seemed like a direct reference to the alternate version of Draenor's warlords, rather than our own.
One could argue that by the end of the events that play out in 6.0 and 6.1, the Iron Horde has been effectively shut down, backs against the wall, leaving them with no other apparent alternative than to turn to tactics they weren't originally going to use. But the one thing we haven't done is really look at the situation and ask ourselves -- why the Iron Horde to begin with?
Wrathion spent pretty much the entirety of Mists of Pandaria sending us on errands -- and now it appears the Black Prince is on Draenor. Yet despite evidence of his presence, he's nowhere to be found. Then, of course, is the question of why Wrathion would be on Draenor when it's the safety of Azeroth he's concerned with, especially after his visions of the world being overrun.
