In the opening quests of Battle for Azeroth, the Horde takes a little trip to the Stormwind Stockades to rescue a high-value prisoner.
Varok Saurfang is an Orc of myth and legend, capable of cleaving entire raids out of Orgrimmar in classic WoW.
Although roughly the same age as his father when he became king, Anduin Wrynn’s reign so far is a far cry from anything his father accomplished in his first few years leading Stormwind.
It's been nine months since the Battle for Azeroth launch cinematic debuted at BlizzCon, giving us our first glimpse at the Troll who would come to be be known as "Zappy Boi." He's only on screen briefly, but that was all it took to strike a chord with the audience.
The Darkshore events of the last couple of weeks have been hard to process -- and Blizzard's twin novellas, A Good War and Elegy, don't exactly offer any comfort.
Varok Saurfang has had arguably one of the most heart-wrenching lives in Warcraft canon.
One of the things we say a lot is "in beta, everything is subject to change" and that's because this happens every beta.
Once again I feel compelled to warn you of impending spoilers for the story of Battle for Azeroth.
Before we get rolling, the standard caveats: this is all datamined information from the folks at Wowhead, nothing is set in stone, nothing is live yet.
