It really is, though I wonder how many people, even amongst Blizzard, remember that one lonely quest giver on his small island. (who is entirely miss-able even when you actually quest the zone.)

It would be nice to see them clarified someday.

Perhaps someone should make a thread collecting all the out of the way little things we have no answers for, for future chronicle books. Worth thinking on.

The may still remember about them, since they have their own lore bible. And according to Kosak they check wowpedia.

The idea for a thread like this is really good. I dig it. But I have doubts that some of the things will fit in the new Chronicle volumes. Vol. 2 - a bit info about Argus, a lot of stuff about Draenor, First War, Second War. Vol. 3 - Third War, aftermath of the war and maybe some of the early WoW events. Sadly, the riders can't really fit in here. As Farondis from Azsuna. They've mentioned Elisande from Legion in Vol. 1, but not this guy. Yeap, he is less important, but an addition of one more page about another elven prince wouldn't hurt anyone.

They could always release a chronicle book detailing the whole of the Kaldorei Empire history, filled with all those details

I imagine that volume one was supposed to do that. Prehistory and all. It covered their origins and empire.

Yeah, I highly doubt they will use any more Chronicle pages for the Kaldorei empire.

I meant that Volume 1 gave an overview from the Mythos all the way to the Dark Portal.

Chronicle: Children of the Stars could give us a whole 200 pages only of the history and geography of the Empire for nerds like me :p

Would buy two copies if it contained a lot of variations that were presumed entinct or similiar. What could have been have been is often just as cool as what is and it requires a lot less effort to show off.

Black - earth;
Green - absolutely no idea whatsoever. Spirit?

But also I'm wondering that there is no mention of the Hour of Twilight. I understand that the titans were probably speaking with the Aspects as they were empowered, but what about that potential vision Aman'Thul had of the Old Gods awaking?

-------------------------


------------------------

Furthermore, do you guys think there are more titans that aren't of the Pantheon? St some points the book points to yes, and at others to no.
Alextrasza and Ysera were literally sisters, and Ysera was yellow before her transformation. She may be a product of a hybrid pairing. Still, both being descended from fire elementals is likely. Also recal that a green dragon has been changed into a fire hawk.

Other Titans could exist. Perhaps ones that awoke independent of the Pantheon. Perhaps ones that have already been corrupted.

Nope. She was just on the top ten Wild Gods list, unlike Cenarius.

A few questions:

Did the Mogu Empire really only survive for 200 years after the death of Lei Shen?

What do you think happened to Tyr's Silver Hand?

How are there still earthen and mechagnomes in Uldaman and Ulduar? Why weren't they affected by the Curse of Flesh?

Is Lathar'Lazal Blackfathom Deeps? It seems almost obvious to me, but wowpedia seems to think it's Sargeron.

When you compare the maps of Old Kalimdor and modern Kalimdor, that seems unlikely, as Lathar'Lazal is south of modern day Astranaar.

Idk if anyone mentioned it here, but Zin-Azshari was called Elun'dris. Azshara replacing Elune was always kinda a thing but this drives the point home further.

Oh and the helves made Quel'thalas into a eternal summerland because they almost got themselves killed by a winterstorm on the way there.

Maybe they're involved in... Something that happened during the long vigil?

Non-Druid male nelfs had to do SOMETHING.

It's certainly an idea. You could fit the rigid society stance by supposing that if you had no druidic potential as a male then you were assigned to a dragon with inherent connections to the dream instead. Those with skill ride, those without it clean or just generally maintain them. Not a typical relation with dragons though so would need explaining. Would make a good short story!

Non-druid men wouldn't be able to enter the Sentinels, but it doesn't mean they wouldn't learn to fight and protect their home. Remember, there were always satyrs, beasts and centaurs to look out for. For example, during the Shifting Sands, men fought with sword too.

Apart from that, there would be crafters, food makers, perhaps judges and stuff?
