I was speaking with a friend who played Warcraft I, II, and III, but never played World of Warcraft, or even read up on any of the lore.
If you play a Death Knight, a Blood Elf or a Night Elf in World of Warcraft (and seemingly not a Void Elf or a Nightborne) then you're going to notice a few changes in patch 8.3, specifically to your eyes.

One of the things that we don't really talk about enough when we talk about World of Warcraft and its lore is that there are vast swathes of history we know nothing about.

While we're waiting for servers to come back, why not enjoy this encore presentation of a pretty relevant Know Your Lore?
Hearthstone’s next expansion is called The Witchwood — but the name is a new one, given to what was once the Blackwald in Gilneas.
