[November 2011 Update: With the next expansion taking place entirely in Pandaria, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to learn Calia Menethil’s fate.  Suffice to say that the current speculation still stands.  We’ll see her when Kul Tiras finally makes its appearance in WoW.] This is some pretty stretched speculation here, […]

Sargeras will be the final boss of WoW’s 5th expansion.  That I’m sure of.  But where has he been in the meantime?  The common misconception is that he’s dead.  That’s a load of bunk.  He’s as alive as ever.  That said, Blizzard definitely went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible.

With every major expansion in WoW we have had one headliner boss.  Sure, there have been cameos such as Kil’Jaeden, but ultimately only one who received top-billing.  The three so far have obviously been Illidan, Arthas, and now Deathwing.  So who will be next? That’s simple:  Queen Azshara.  Period.  And here’s why…

It was the sword of the Lich King, but where is it now?  At the end of Wrath of the Lich King, Frostmourne was shattered during the final battle with Arthas when Tirion Fordring struck the great runesword with the even greater Ashbringer.  After the battle, the shards of Frostmourne remained on the ground, seemingly […]

The problem with lore as it is with WarCraft, or even StarCraft, is we’re dealing with a franchise.  With every new title the lore grows deeper, more robust, more confusing.  There’s simply more to keep track of, and if the guy in charge of it all can’t even remember who’s still alive, then how can […]

His statue stands in the most esteemed position outside  of Stormwind.  He was one of the original five founding knights of The Silver Hand.  He was Anduin Lothar’s right hand man in the Second War.  But perhaps most impressive of all, it was he who defeated Orgrim Doomhammer, and led the original Alliance expedition into […]

Deathwing has a secret… I doubt this is something that will be revealed in Cataclysm.  In fact, I doubt it’ll ever be openly revealed at all.  Virtually every great story has subtext.  You may have the plot, the story at face-value, but the subtext is what’s *really* going on. Deathwing has a secret, and while […]

I’ve had a number of people ask me for a good place to read up on Cataclysm Lore.  My standard answer is wowpedia.org, but the honest answer is, “There is no all encompassing Cataclysm Lore library yet.” Why?  Because there’s just so much of it. And this ties into something else…

[October 2011 Update: Now that Mists of Pandaria has been officially announced, we can make an even better guess as to what will come after it. So far, we’ve been correct with story progression: Vanilla Outland Northrend Emerald Dream Maelstrom Argus That said, Blizzard threw us a couple of curve balls.  The Emerald Dream expansion was released as […]

Alright, so today we had Friday’s Lore Panel; did we learn anything? Oh yes. You can read the full transcript here. But you don’t come here for a link to mmo-champion.  What you want is speculation.  So… what can we derive from what was said?  Read on.
