I think it's a collaboration between the two, and will be regarded as a canonical source of lore.. hopefully.

I certainly won't be buying it due to lack of funds, but I hope somebody does so we can see what they have to say about their official and up-to-date timeline.

I doubt I can find any bookshop that stocks it, I'll gladly spend the cash for a timeline though.

Montoya, I can't believe you made this thread to tell us you have the book and are reading it, and then you just disappear!

From the previews it looks like Wowpedia: The Book.

Let's.

By the way, Sean mentioned new lore, so that alone makes the book worth it, as far as I am concerned.

My local Barnes and Noble says they have some in stock, hopefully I can pick one up later today and share what's inside if Montoya doesn't come back before then.

Obviously the Cairne/Baine mistake traumatised him more than he let on.

Found it in the store of the university.

It's quite similar to the SWTOR Encyclopedia, except there are far many more characters and factions to introduce. I didn't find much "new" information, if you are a big fan you would have known 99% of the lore it presents. It's mostly targeted at those who aren't a big fan of the lore.

However the arts of the characters are pretty cool, like Highborne Azshara and some other unseen image, if you like, buy it.

You think you're sneaky like that, but I see right through your game.

I bought the book, will share info and scans once I get home.

I have to say the SWTOR one provided much more lore, and this one is mostly about the arts. Beside Azshara, there are prior transformed Deathwing and a few other interesting images.

If it was going to be that it would've been advertised as such. Even the name doesn't imply much.
