World Of Warcraft: Here's WoW’s Entire Lore Up To Shadowlands

Video games aren’t all action-packed shoot fests. Some of them prefer to tell a story, whether through the environments or the events of the game. RPGs typically focus on this aspect, and WoW, as an MMORPG, is no different. There’s more to the game than just grinding, raiding, or having to buy WoW gold for equipment.To get more news about Buy WoW WLK Gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

The Beginning

In the universe of World of Warcraft, Titans are beings called world-souls. They slumbered in peace, though they can wake to shape worlds or maintain order. Everything was at peace, but everything changed when the Old Gods decided to corrupt these beings. Titan Sargeras was the first to find a corrupted world-soul.


Without asking his fellow titans, he slew the corrupted one, destroying an innocent in the process. It was the Old Gods who corrupted it, after all. This fact made the other titans unconvinced at Sargeras’ claims that no life was better than corrupted life. Driven mad by the desire to prove his claims, he raised an army of Demons and thus started the Burning Crusade to purge the living from the universe.

Meanwhile, the other Titans found the corrupted Azeroth. They couldn’t destroy the Old Gods’ influence without destroying the planet, so they went with the next best thing. They locked up the Old Gods with their powers.

Happy to succeed, they rushed to tell Sargeras the good news. However, he was too deep into his madness and war broke out. The other titans, unwilling to kill or perhaps still wanting to convince Sargeras, lost this war.

After the War

With the other titans gone, Sargeras can now destroy Azeroth without any interference. The problem is, he didn’t know where it was or how to get there. As for the inhabitants of Azeroth, they went about their lives, building, inventing, and innovating with magic.

Though the latter led them to prosperity, it also became a beacon to Sargeras who finally found his quarry. He goaded the elven queen Azshara into opening a portal using the power of the Well of Eternity. It was foiled by the brothers Malfurian and Illidan Stormrage. However, Illidan was addicted to the Well’s power and was betrayed by Malfurian who destroyed it. That caused a huge explosion called the Maelstrom, but Azeroth was saved from an invasion.

Building an Army

Sargeras needed an army, so he went to the planet Argus to recruit. He successfully roped in two of the three leaders of the Eredar race. The third, Velen, fled to Draenor with his people. They were then called the Draenei, meaning the exiled ones.

Unfortunately, Kil’jaeden, one of the Eredar leaders under Sargeras, had the idea to corrupt the Orcs in Draenor. It was a very effective tactic, and the Horde was born. They fought against the Draenei as Kil’jaeden’s revenge. When all was said and done, though, he left the Orcs behind on their dying planet.

In a bid to find somewhere else to live, the Orcs opened the Dark Portal to Azeroth but were rebuffed by its inhabitants, and their portal shut. Desperate, they opened more than one portal all at the same time, shattering the world and turning it into the Outland we know today. Some brave heroes jumped into the Dark Portal to stop the problem at the roots, though they remained trapped in the broken world.

There were remnants of the Orcs trapped along with the Alliance heroes, as a majority of the Orcs had fled to Azeroth or taken captive.

The Lich King

After leaving the Orcs on Outland, Kil’jaeden created the Lich King to weaken Azeroth. Its purpose was to raise an army of the undead to conquer Azeroth. However, it got trapped on the Frozen Throne. Still, he can command his army telepathically, so it wasn’t a problem for him.

Anyway, in a bid to combat the undead plague, the human prince Arthas Menethil took up Frostmourne, the Lich King’s blade, to defeat Mal’Ganis. He succeeded, but lost his soul in the process, becoming a Death Knight. Once a shining hero, he became Azeroth’s worst nightmare.

He crossed paths with one Sylvanas Windrunner, and in the ensuing battle, he ripped out her soul. This turned her into a banshee and a servant to the Lich King.Under the leadership of Thrall, Orcs returned to their peaceful way of living. Due to the increasing problems of the Lich King and an impending invasion by the Burning Legion, Thrall went to Jaina Proudmoore for an alliance.
