Thoughts on the Shattering Part 2: Themes and Story

Entire post is spoiler ridden. Do not read if you care. You’ve been warned.

The Next Generation of Azeroth: Who Dey Be?

Cataclysm is pretty revolutionary for lore because, for the first time in 15 years of Warcraft story, we’re starting with a fresh beginning (sort of). It started mid-Wrath, technically, but up until then WoW was essentially overlapping the previous storyline from the original RTS games. Even as we moved forward in the timeline of the…
