I wouldn't say so much that Alleria is weaker than Sylvanas, considering her stats are from around 20 years ago compared to Sylvanas' current stats....It's like Grom he's level 23 same as Uther, yet his stats are from when he first landed on Kalimdor. I'm willing to bet he gained a level or two from his battles with Cenarius and Mannoroth. Like Khadgar, he's like level 22 but his stats are before he went Beyond the Dark Portal.

Like it or not, Knaak has lots of say in WArcraft lore.

What? You didn't think the WOTA Trilogy was canon the minute it was released? Knaak and Metzen are friends, they have even gone to book signings together, and Metzen respects anything that Knaak decides to add to the WarCraft world.

Does this mean SoL's lore section was slain before it rose? Does that mean Kenzuki and Scythe are gonna lose their power?

Anyway, I guess Gul'dan really didn't see Sargeras after all.
'There have been no reported sightings of Sargeras since the death of the wizard Medivh, who was possessed by Sargeras' spirit at the time.'
Think they should have mentioned Gul'dan specifically though and should have said he didn't really see Sargeras.

Remember the Gul'dan died in the Tomb, hence, he couldnt report if it was Sargeras or not :p

Well if you want to go technical, but the message is pretty clear, or so I think.

Maiev may have told about it to other night elves, who went to Kalimdor with Malfurion later on.

There's a Farstrider Lodge in Loch Modan. I've never played a dwarf, so I'm not sure if there's a connection, but it's possible.

Gul'dan was half dead and delerious at the time he saw "Sargeras", which for all we know could have just been some residual effect of the demon lord's body in the tomb.

For being "half dead and delerious" he made it quite far after that.

Gul'dan didnt get the bleeding until AFTER he saw "Sargeras", so I would say he noticed it wasnt Sargie, and got a wound from the demon, and then, he either killed it and moved deeper into the tomb, or he fled.

Whatever he did, the wound later killed him...

But that is my theory.

It wasn't so much the wound that killed him than the rampage of screaming bloodthirsty demons that chewed him into pieces shortly after the final cutscene.

The thing is Sargeras could not have been there, because this was AFTER Medivh was killed and Sargeras' spirit was banished to the "Abyss". Considering that Kil'jaeden is the leader of the Legion it's resonable to assume that he hasn't heard anything from him as well.

I've been curious as to what this Abyss place is; anyone know what it is and why when sargares got banished he got sent there? I am still convinced he is going to makeit back eventually to if anyone can, its Sargares.

As for the WoW Encylopedia, very cool idea, I like it. Hopefully future segments answer a few unanswered questions that are floating about.

I hope they add Eredun to the language section next. I thirst for demonic tongue knowledge. Also hoping they write up on Mephistroth... really hope they haven't forgotten him.

I just hope they fill it up with just about everything in the end - and make it a real 'encyclopedia' of Warcraft.

Yeah, "A collection of background information for The Burning Crusade" is more accurate ATM.

Well thats not neccessarily a bad thing. So many players are ignorant of the history of the Warcraft world; trying to change peoples mentality and get them involved in something other then epics is always a good thing.

Yeah, but my point is that there's plenty of room to expand.

It's a work in progress at the moment. Don't jump to conclusions about it when they just released it. Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather they release it little by little, instead of in one huge release. This way I can go through what's just added whenever they update it, without being overwhelmed.

Now, if in 6 months they haven't added a single thing to it, then it's time to be annoyed, but the amount of information that will be in this when it's done will be immense, and I doubt they want to devote the manpower to get it all done in a short time. They have other things that need to get done first. They've probably assigned 2 people at most to filling this out, and they need to cross reference the information with Chris Metzen first, probably.

So, it's been 12 months. Can we be annoyed now?
