Eh, there is some speculation on wowhead about old gods, and arakkoa worshipping them. I really don't buy it. Shadowmoon Valley was a nexus of evil, from Ner'zhul to Gul'Dan to Teron Gorefiend to all the Burning Legion influence there, not to mention Illidan and his mongrel self.Old Gods are massive. Like spanning large parts of planets massive. They have tendrils reaching everywhere. Shadowmoon Valley has lakes that are green from Demonic influence, no need for an old god to have done all that. A couple of slimes in a broken-off piece of Outland isn't enough to make me think "old god."You want some out of the box thinking? How about this:On a planet with Titan technology, guardians, lorekeepers, and influence, a warlock would not be able to basically turn the entire planet inside out and send it into the twisting nether. The planet would be "re-originated" long before anything like that would happen. There is no curse of flesh. There are no earthen or larger versions of known species. There's a lot of animals and energy, but there aren't any corrupted world trees.Let me put it another way: Old Gods and Titans are not small people with small ideas. They are gigantic and larger than life. In a world that has been turned inside out like a bad sweater, we would see all kinds of huge buildings with columns, ruins all over the place, old god tendrils and brains and eyeballs flying out all over the place, not just a few slimes in an off-beaten corner of an evil part of Outland.
