World of Warcraft timeline: A brief history of Azeroth all the way up to Shadowlands

The World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion is just around the corner and there is every reason to be excited. Not only will we get a new dungeon, new customizations, and new gameplay options, but a brand-new story to underscore all of it. The Warcraft lore is one of the best aspects of the long-running MMO, but it can be a little overwhelming. To get more news about Buy WoW WLK EU Gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

With so many games, expansions, books, comics, and even a movie, Blizzard's narrative has become increasingly complex over the years. That's why this World of Warcraft lore recap could come in handy for those looking to dip their toes back into Azeroth's waters for the first time. Although we will stick to the essentials, reading this will tell you the full story of WoW, from the very beginning of the universe itself, to the start of the next chapter in Shadowlands.

In true high fantasy fashion, World of Warcraft lore includes a universe origin story. It all started with the Titans. These godlike creatures spent the first part of their existence as slumbering world-souls. Once awakened, they searched for more of their own kind while shaping worlds and maintaining order.

Little did they know that the evil Old Gods had set out to corrupt the slumbering Titan world-souls. When the Titan Sargeras discovered the first corrupted world-soul, he made the not-so-heroic decision to slay it, thereby killing the innocent Titan. It was an action his fellow Titans did not appreciate.

Unable to convince the others that a world without life was better than a world with corrupted life, Sargeras went rogue, raised an army of Demons, and started the Burning Crusade; an attempt to purge the universe of all that was living. Meanwhile, the Titans found the world-soul of the planet Azeroth (yes, the main map). It was corrupted by the Old Gods, but they could still save it. As the Titans were unable to destroy the Old Gods without destroying the planet, they opted for the next-best solution: locking them away.

Happy with their work, the Titans ran over to Sargeras to tell him the good news; the world-souls could be saved without destroying all life. Unfortunately, Sargeras had no intention to come back to the good side, and a war broke out. Long story short, Sargeras won.Fortunately for Azeroth, Sargeras did not know how to get there. Things were happy and peaceful on the planet, with everyone busy building their world, inventing things, and wielding magic. That use of magic, however, gave away the planet’s location to Sargeras, who then manipulated the elven queen Azshara into opening a portal using the magical Well of Eternity.
