Each of the Afterlives videos included a well-known lore character from the past.
Sylvanas Windrunner is dead. But we knew that already. What we didn’t realize – and perhaps we still don’t have the entire answer to this question – is what exactly that means.
It’s official – Christie Golden is writing another World of Warcraft novel.
What do you do when you’ve lost everything?
A couple of years ago, I wrote about Jaina Proudmoore’s progress as a character after the loss of Theramore and the events in Mists of Pandaria.
Baine Bloodhoof certainly wasn't a high-profile leader in Warlords of Draenor, nor was he more than a minor character in the events presented in Mists.
Sylvanas Windrunner had a choice to make at the end of Wrath of the Lich King, and initially, she chose oblivion.
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.
Although she's not necessarily heavily involved with Draenor, Jaina Proudmoore, leader of the Kirin Tor, has made her presence known. And her current behavior is slightly confusing to those that have read the novel War Crimes, but not necessarily out of character.
