Genn Greymane: Lord of his Pack. You referenced the Present Day and the flashback to when he began building the Greymane Wall, but there were also scenes at the beginning of the founding of the Alliance around Tides of Darkness times, and before the Portal when Genn was a child.

If I understand correctly, the Warcraft Legends books aren't really canon. I'll look for a source when I can, but that was stated recently.

Thanks!

I really had to ask about the Legends being canon. Those are really good stories and it would be shame if they were non canon

Well, First Guardian takes place in -2600, so 1 hundred years after the Council of Tirisfal was founded (in year -2700).

So, it would be:

Troll Wars (-2800).

Founding of Dalaran, then founding of the Council of Tirisfal (-2700).

First Guardian of the Tirisfalen (-2600).

It's because the draenei were corrupted 25.000 years before TBC (which begins in year 26). That date was stated in the TBC Townhall (which I transcripted to Wowpedia).

It should be -29,974.
