Default WarCraft Encyclopedia

Wow, I can honestly say I didn't expect this. Blizzard has updated their page with a friggin' World of WarCraft Encyclopedia. It's rudimentary so far (most write-ups are Elves-related right now), but a great source of lore information for WarCraft newbies to check out and it even has some interesting tidbits for those familiar with the lore. Be sure to check out the Languages section, as that has some cool translations in it too. Many thanks to Creative for pointing this out.

Heh, no problem

This will be a great help for lore noobs, and Wowwiki might fall!

But they should atleast have covered Humans and Orcs from the start, I mean, they are the frikking main races of Warcraft :p

And, the Legion being able to suceed is cool ^^

Nah, Elves win through popularity. It's sad but true. Besides, with all the BC stuff, ppl want to read about Blood Elves anyways.

Again, WoWWiki won't fall, because it's a good source of non-lore related info. Gear, strats, and general game info, it's a valuable source. Just not lore. It's fine if you don't like WoWWiki, but viewing it as evil-incarnate just because it's bad with lore is unfair.

I agree with that, but as a source of lore it does suck

BTW, I especially love that the Prision of the Universe thing is a TD map - which makes it even more rediculous that they considered it canon. It's like writing up an entry about an even where "the King's castle" was besieged by thousands of Gnolls, Trolls, Murlocs, and other creatures, and 12 adventurers banded together to defend him before they could break through to his throne room

Oh btw, the "Farstriders" under Factions is new info on there. Seems to be BC-related.
