If he could come and go as he pleases, that kind of takes away any weight to Huln's banishment.

And although it's obviously speculative, the Elemental Shaman artifact line makes me think that only...

Orb of Fire Deathwing in Deepholme and Outland

So, we all know now that Huln is the one who banished Deathwing to Deepholme, finally answering the question of how he got there in the first place so that he could break out come Cataclysm--which I...

While there is no conclusive evidence for any hypothesis regarding Skyriss, it is important to note the possibility that he isn't Qiraji, and that he's a member of an Old God serving race on another...

Point 3 here is, in my opinion, the crux of the entire issue, as it is simply logically insurmountable. As there is no way to overcome this paradox, I must conclude that the twitter post that started...

I think the problem here is that people are looking at this from too deep a lore perspective, when in reality, people like Vol'jin for in-game and historical reasons. Even from the start of WoW, the...

The poor quality of the faction conflict has nothing to do with writing, but with the concept itself.

The faction war has been done already, and it will always be somewhat predictable. This...

Consistent with Warcraft 3? So a story that never evolves? That never introduces anything that didn't happen in a dated RTS game? That literally only uses lore that already exists, never creating new...

The fact still stands that the majority of pre-history lore suggests that the Old Gods arrived on Azeroth first, negating the entire thing. The Halls of Stone is in conflict with most lore on the...

It'd be a pain to look it up (if anyone is so inclined to help...), but I know that there was a lore bit somewhere that implied that the OG are not native even to our plane of reality, let alone...

I see this pop up a lot, but I want to slow down and actually unpack this for a second. If a faction war happens, does it necessarily need to have an end or a victor to be good? If somehow, by magic,...

I like the black hole style idea as well, since the concept of a black hole in reality was once referred to as a dark star in the early 20th century.
