A comment about the Pandern:There will never be a Pandern playable race because it is against Chinese law to kill a Panda or image of a Panda. It would be an unbelivable amount of work for Blizzard to create a race and have to modify it for a significant portion of its player base. Rumor is thats why they made the Dreani the Alliance race, whom were supposed to remain a neutral faction (Aldor/Shattar).Anyways I have a question for Ask a Lore Nerd:I was under the impression that the 'Titans' were the creaters of Worlds, Sargeaus being one of them. The created the universe, gave it its beings and guarded it (made the Dragons to guard Azeroth for instance). Now having played through the Son of Hodir quest chain, are we to belive that Loken someone who we kill regularily (although with great effort on heroic) is a Titan? I just forsaw something alittle more grand for a set of beings who empowered the Dragon Aspects, created the Burning Legion, and well created the universe.So where am I going ary? Is Loken & co not the Titans? or are we seeing the same term to describe two different things.-M

I think a quick run through HoS would answer that; though admittedly I dozed off a little during the lengthy chat following the 3rd boss fight.

China has no laws against portraying the deaths of pandas.

Idran is correct, there is no such law.To answer your question though, Loken was a guardian of sorts, left by the Titans. He is not a Titan himself.

1) The Titans did not create worlds or the universe. They simply bring "order" to worlds. Azeroth existed long before the Titans came along, but it was under the control of warring elementals and the Old Gods that commanded them.2) Loken is not a Titan. He was a construct built in the image of the Titans and left as essentially the chief steward to watch over Azeroth in the absence of the Titans.
