I posted this in the Breakfast topic Is Wow Science Fiction? but I figured it would probably be better here. I feel WoW does draw heavily from several different fantasy worlds but most fantasies do the same. I do see a lot of key things taken from the series "The Wayfarer Redemption" by Sara Douglass. Humans are Xenophobes for the most part, Blood Elves are extremely vain and love magic as do Icarii, Tauren and Night Elves both value the power of the trees and nature and the Night Elves are extremely reclusive and unwilling to fight much like the Avar. Undead can be seen as the villains in books 4-6 (Don't want to spoil in case you read it) in they want to destroy all life by various plagues. There are a lot more similarities but they can be seen as spoilers. Definately worth the read IMO and I am glad to see Blizzard, even if unintentionally, has some parts of this series in their own Warcraft series.
