So hi. I'm Exxile, and I'm not dead. I haven't been playing WoW for the better part of the last 18 months. Shit happens. Fuck you.

Anyway, I'm not going to dig through the hundreds of pages of comments on the Legion thread, so I need you nerds to fill me in on the important lore going in. I won't give you anything in return, and I will probably still hate you, but at least you'll know that before helping a brother out.

And tell your mom to stop calling me, Omacron. Once was enough.

Vol'jin gets lost, and people think he's dead.

Varian is said to be dead, but we haven't seen a body yet.

Sylvanas is trying to corrupt the Titan keeper that controls the Val'kyr.

Ysera, Cenarius, Ursoc, Malfurion and some other green dragons/druidic beings get corrupted by Xavius, who's working for the BL again.

Jaina left Dalaran. Khadgar replaces her, and Kalec replaces the elf.

Tirion bites the dust.

Thrall loses the Doomhammer and the elements don't talk to him anymore, because eh doesn't believe in himself.

Maiev is sane again, and her brother forgives her trespasses.

Illidan is sane, good and on our side.

We have demon hunters. They are only elves.

Gnomes can be hunters.

Kalec replaced Rommath, who was only on the Council of Six in the alpha.

Aethas is back in Dalaran, but not on the Council.

Anduin is the King of Stormwind.

Magni is back, and the council may or may not be dissolved.

Thrall lost the ability to use the Doomhammer/the elements ever since he killed Garrosh. We don't know why.

Class halls. Lots of class halls.

Artifact weapons that makes you feel like a special snowflake as long as you ignore literally everyone else. At least you can transmog them.

Idk what you give a fuck about so I don't know what to be more specific about.

Also fuck you you fucker. Go fucking fuck yourself you fuck face.

Some stuff people surprisingly haven't already mentioned.

-Sylvannas is Warchief of the Horde.

-Genn Greymane is acting as the military leader of the Alliance it seems (but has no official title). He's focusing the Alliance's army's efforts on killing Sylvannas for "what she did to Varian," apparently under Anduin's orders.

-Vereesa takes the player to a Legion portal world called Niskara in the marksmanship hunter quest to find Alleria. She isn't there, but they locate her bow. Vereesa concludes that Alleria was being held there, but must have escaped at some point in the past, but due to the way time works in the nether, it could have been "days, weeks, or centuries ago."

-The "Tears of Elune" are one of the Titan's Pillars of Creation, hard to say what that says about the nature of Elune herself yet. They're obtained when Elune cries over the death of Ysera at the hand of the player character and Tyrande.

-Wrathion finds a clutch of uncorrupted black dragon eggs in Neltharion's Lair, and decides to raise them to make a new black dragonflight.

-Gul'dan stole Illidan's corpse for nefarious, possibly sexual purposes.

-Maiev is good again

-Blizzard spends millions of advertisements

-Player characters are mary sues

-We travel to isles that may or may not be broken

-The citizens of Draenor got what they wanted from us then left us waiting for their help

-Thrall is sad again, this time because the elements don't want you to kill evil people

-Vol'jin is dead or not, depending on the fan reaction, just like Bolvar was

-Bolvar returns, is evil probably

Greymane seems less the military leader of the entire Alliance and more just the military leader of the Gilneas Brigade. Although even then I'd argue Lorna is the commander there.

It could just be a side effect of the Gilneas Brigade being the only Alliance presence, though Rogers seems to defer to or at least be equals in command level with him.

Malfurion is only kidnapped actually. Stormrage novel 2.0 basically for him.

I'm not haha

Actually, I'm sorry if that's what you guys (I've been approached on the subject twice - may be because of my english) understood, but I'm fine with spoilers. Discussing WoW lore/spoilers is one of the main reasons I'm here. The only thing I'm avoiding is watching alpha footage of the shaman quests, especially enhancement but I'm happy to get info on all the rest.

Appreciate the concern tho

The moose Tauren were magically given their moose antlers when Cenarius blessed Huln Highmountain and his people back in the WotA. You even see Huln's model change from horns to antlers in the flashback quest.

Datamined dialogue shows that Azshara destroyed one of the zones, Azsuna, pre-Sundering because one of the Highborne there helped Illidan, Tyrande, and Cenarius. So she blew up the entire zone in return. The zone isn't actually open for questing yet so who knows if that's actually a part of it though.

-moose antlers are awesome.

-Huln banished Deathwing with magic hammer from Khaz'gorath

-Huln had a pet deer

-You use huln's spear.

Well, the good thing about Dalaran is that it has a lot of useful portals. Portals to just about anywhere are quite useful for a cabal of this sort, and I wouldn't be surprised if Dalaran were facilitating their transport.

We must remember that unsavoury types have availed themselves of Dalaranese portals before...

I like how they explained moose antlers for Tauren. They should do something similar for red panda tails on Pandaren
