Specifically, "how much damage did this book do."

I'm trying to decide if it is definitively saying that the Titans came before the Old Gods. There is a picture of Cairne and it is labeled Baine . Other than that, smooth sailing so far .

They didn't make a ebook version so I probably won't get it regardless.

The first review of it on Amazon is

Quote:
The layout of the book is nice and does a nice job of going through the history of Warcraft. The behind the scenes has nothing to do with the development of Warcraft and basically shows you pictures of Blizzcon and Blizzcon Panels along with some Warcraft merchandise. No pictures of the developers working in house or even the support team behind Warcraft. I take 2 stars away for this because the description read as "even goes be yond the game, giving readers a peek at the behind-the-scenes development of Blizzard's vivid fantasy world." and is nothing that you won't see on any website that covers Blizzcon.

I'll probably end up buying it since I'm a Blizzard otaku.

But haven't got it yet. Need to wait for budget dollars to come in.

My thoughts exactly. I have a feeling that this'll be a piece of shit... I'll still buy it, though, because I'm an utter Bizzard whore. Can't wait for the books fuck-ups to be revealed.

If it's really that bad then there is no reason to support shitty products. Most of the pictures can probably found on Sons of the Storm site anyway.

I'll get it if it does not suck. So, Wowpedia II or Book of Cain lite or what?

It was written between Sean Copeland and Anne Stickney, if I recall rightly. He even said it was a good piece of canon...

But first, Montoya... Would you transcribe the timeline?

I wanna know if it has anything more about Gilneas and Worgen, as well as any better detailed explanations of magic studies.

I suppose that isn't so terrible, I can just imagine them getting characters wrong.

Still I think if more races are to be taken seriously then they need to be given more publicity.

It's not like Blizzard doesn't do that already.

Okey

Surely the worgen, as every race, will be mentioned... It's a visual guide.

Undoubtedly there will be mention of worgen since they are a playable race. But as for new info, don't bet on it. They had their spotlight in CotW. Blizzard hasn't tried to expand or do anything with them beyond that. Why would this book be any different?
