Kelkar, right?

Every question was true/false though so you had a 50/50 shot even if you didn't know.

Yeah what they'd do is that Evelyn (did I spell that right?) the senior historian would answer the questions, but sometimes she would give the wrong answer. So you had to say if that answer was true or false.

Nope, it was that Grom wanted to continue the war, despite the fact that the orcs had a low enough population to live without harassing them now.

Ahh, went back and went over it just now, almost the very last of BotDP, so you are right. Haratha was slain moments before, which is why I remembered the way I did

I never picked up the books that served as retellings of WCII and its expansion because I thought I knew the original games so well.


Then again I didn't remember when Teron invaded Dalaran for its eye so apparently that proved me wrong, too.

I really would recommend picking them up. Theres a new "Chronicles of War" archives that has Rise of The Horde, The Last Guardian, Tides of Darkness, and Beyond the Dark portal.

I'd recommend shutting your mouth before I put my fist in it.

I kid, I kid. Is it available as an ebook? I really only buy physical warcraft books because I want them signed by the authors at Blizzcon. Since it's a compilation of older works (and not all of them are by Knaak and Golden) I'd get them on an ebook.

The Leg and Eye things yes... but not the wolf thing, that's valid.


Draka's family toes the line, but if it's True/False it should be fine.

Do you remeber the name of these guys?

Doubtful. It was against the rules to record gameplay. So I doubt many risked it. Let alone for more than a few minutes like those clips.

Not gonna read through all of this thread.

I want to know how the Monk's playstyle felt, and how well you think it'll do. Also, how much cooler do you think the Monk will be when it's a draenei?

The monk is "solid" but it didn't "wow" me like when I first played a death knight during WotLK's beta. The Chi regenerates way too slowly for it to be the fast-paced, rhythmic martial artist that I'm sure so many of us are expecting. It's basically mash your basic attack, use your light attack until the enemy has less than 50% health then mash your dark attack. It needs a lot of tuning, IMO, because I really shouldn't have too much downtime with a class like that. Then again, that may be because I just got to level 7.
