Judging the tense relationship with the Burning Legion during the events of TFT, plus beforehand in RoC as in with the case of Arthas telling of Illidan to kill one of the major Legion lieutenants(Committing intrigue against the Legion). I'd say, it wouldn't be unsurprising if Arthas had been incognito in and around Lordaeron during the time. Perhaps in Quel'thalas?

For me, the perfect Volume III would have two parts just like Volume II.

Part 1 would be the history of Northrend, explaining the consequences of the Loken's betrayal and the Winterskorn War, passing through the Aqir War and the arrival of the nerubians, the Drakkari, Ymiron and the Jalgar, and history post-Sundering, showing us the human lands and how the dragons related to all the that. It would end with the arrival of Ner'zhul.

Part 2 would begin right after BtDP and tell the story up until the end of TFT, with some sections telling of the creation of the Scarlet Crusade and stuff.

Of course, this would be my perfect version, of it really must include WoW then take it up to Kel'Thuzad's defeat in Naxxramas.

Then give us a Volume IV talking about TBC, WotLK, Cataclysm and MoP.

Gold (War3)

The settlement of Durotar and Theramore could be a great topic for the Chronicle to delve into. The South Seas, the trade, the tropics, all those wonderful aspects of TFT-Vanilla Kalimdor.

It's a shame that, unless we're dealing with elves, we rarely get untranslated names for clans, tribes and races. Maybe Chronicle 3 will rectify this and provide us wih the Darkspear tribe's true name.

Unlikely. Even elven names such as Whisperwind and Stormrage go untranslated.

I could ask the devs on Twitter, but its Golden Age is already over.

Yes, all of this. In particular, I want to know Thrall's line of thought upon landing in Durotar:

"A sun-baked wasteland! The perfect home for my people!"

Yeah, there was some stuff later that said Thrall settled his people there as penance but that just creates more problems.

I haven't played the RTS games, was Durotar always a sun-baked wasteland?

In TFT Durotar was part of the Barrens instead of a region of its own, so not quite as much of a wasteland.

If I remember right there was this really bizarre part in the book Cycle of Hatred talking about a fertile forest in Durotar getting chopped down, that has literally never been mentioned anywhere else before or since.

It did look similar to how it does now and shared its tileset with The Barrens. Maybe less red.

Looking at Gorgrond and Nagrand, I can understand why orcs would like to settle in Durotar and The Barrens.

Actually, it did happen in TFT's orc RPG. Thunder Ridge, or whatever the region with the thunder lizards was called, was forested.

It probably won't ever be answered, but I wish they would explain why Thrall in the beginning of Vanilla WOW let the Warsong rampage in Ashenvale instead of telling them: "Get the fuck out of our neighbors forests!!! We don't need another international incident!"

Eh. I'm not necessarily unsympathetic to that breed of edgelord philosophy that describes hope as monstrous, but I'm more inclined to view it as a positive thing. Hope is a fickle friend, and all too often breaks her promises, but without her I would not have the strength to break these chains you call reality.

Not to derail the thread too much, but hope only makes one promise, and that's this: she will always be the last one standing.

Meanwhile, re: the thread, doing a volume three that starts with the build-up to the third war and ends with the fall of the lich king feels like a good pair of bookends for the story.

A theoretical volume four that covers Cataclysm, Mists and Warlords makes sense as a follow-up, since it would allow for a strong focus on Garrosh' rise and fall from power. Having Warlords leave off with the knowledge that AU-Gul'dan escaped sets up volume 5 to lead off with Legion.

But at this point we're a lot of years away from that if we even get there.

400+ pages seems odd, considering the last volume is only 202 pages long (including the index) and
lists the hardcover of Volume 3 as only being 184 pages long. Furthermore, Volume 3 is supposed to include the events of Cataclysm, and Malfurion, Mount Hyjal, and Murozond's last mentions -- which would all logically be during the later parts of the book talking about Cata -- are all between pages 213 and 219. The most important events involving Med'an happened way before that, around the timeframe of early Wrath of the Lich King, so it doesn't make sense for him to only be mentioned on a single page almost 200 pages after the Cata parts. Also, Medivh and Med'an are apparently never mentioned on the same page, so that's pretty weird as well (even if Blizzard does something dumb like retconning it so Med'an was never actually Medivh's son and just some random half-breed kid that Garona/Meryl found somewhere, it seems to me that Medivh should still be mentioned in some capacity like "Garona mistakenly thought that Med'an was the son of her and Medivh"). So, all in all, I'm leaning towards that image being fake.

Regardless of whether or not that image is legitimate, though, Med'an is probably the thing I'm most interested in seeing how Blizzard handles. Seems like it's something they can't really ignore any longer given how important some of the events surrounding Med'an are (Aegwynn's death and Cho'gall's mutations, mainly).

It's not page number, it's "404 — Page Not Found".
You can see what end of Cata events (Murozond) takes place at pages 213/219

... oh. I guess I should have figured out that it's a joke, given the easter eggs in the Volume 2 index. Feel free to ignore the above rant, I guess.
