How will WoW end? – Yes, this is a 2016 post!

June 23, 2016

I have patient readers.  And I thank you. So, here I sit, ready to ride write again.  But the ultimate question is… about what? But more on that later.  You’re here to read about WoW. What is there to say?  WoW has gone far beyond its predicted lifespan.  At one point, there was a master […]

Varian Wrynn – Overpowered?

August 22, 2012

Earlier this year, a fundamental shift occurred within Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind.  Within the novel “Wolfheart”, King Wrynn was bestowed with the physical power of a demigod, making him to warriors what Thrall is to shaman, or Malfurion Stormrage to druids.  So what does this mean?  Is he simply now overpowered?  A Knaak branded […]

Azeroth – Is it running out of zones?

What’s on the other side of Azeroth?  For a long time, the answer has been, “Nothing but ocean.” Recently though, this may have changed.  Game-wise, Azeroth is running out of space, and there are only so many islands that can emerge from the fog before it becomes cliche.  But this isn’t just about zones… it […]

Thrall – What will happen to him?

He’s arguably the most famous character in WoW’s lore, but in Cataclysm, he was given a complete overhaul.  Chris Metzen has all but admitted Thrall is his favorite character, “It’s not that I’m an Alliance or Horde fan; I’m a Thrall fan.”  So, why all the recent changes? From a writer’s perspective, it’s obvious Metzen […]

In WarCraft lore, there is an orc military commander who is descended from a famous orc war-hero. He is revered among his people, has served as a close advisor to Thrall, and there is even a named axe that has been passed down through his line. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Except it isn’t Garrosh– it’s […]

Wrathion, the new Earth-Warder?

He’s the most potentially awesome character WarCraft has introduced in years.  Wrathion, the Black Prince, the last black dragon on Azeroth.  An impressive title, but that’s not the best part.  The real kicker?  The Red Dragonflight used Titan technology on him, before he was hatched, to purify him.  So unlike Deathwing, unlike any other black […]

Mists of Pandaria Lore

mists of pandaria lore

I’ll be updating this post as we learn more Mists of Pandaria lore, but for now, there are a few things we can surmise. First and foremost, Blizzard is obviously further sub-dividing the originally expected “Maelstrom” expansion.  This is a very big deal.  Why?  Simply put, it could mean we’ll have not five, but six […]

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner & The Future of the Forsaken

I’m going to start this post differently.  There have been a lot of requests to discuss Sylvanas Windrunner, so I imagine many of you will be happy to see this.  That said, if you really want to understand Sylvanas Windrunner in our post-Cataclysm world, you need to read the short story Edge of Night.  Period.

Will Saurfang Return?

He’s arguably the most badass orc of them all.  Sure, Thrall can lay down some hurt, but when it comes to just busting heads with an axe (the way an orc should), it’s hard to beat Varok Saurfang. So when Cataclysm came out, what did Blizzard do?  They decided to stuff Saurfang away for safe […]
