Hey all!! First post! HUZZAH! I had a bit of a lore question regarding the connection between The War of the Ancients and The Battle for Mount Hyjal. Are the two one and the same? I've read the WotA trilogy and played quite a bit of Warcraft but for some reason my memory escapes me. I recall Malfurion and Illidan using the Demon Soul to close the portal to the Twisting Nether, but I dont remember what happened to Archimonde. Was he just....sucked back into the portal? If so, what brought him back for Hyjal? So many questions, so little time....Thanks guys!

Not the same thing.The War of the Ancients happened thousands of years before the Battle for Mount Hyjal.

Hyjal was the 3rd War, thousands of years after the War of the Ancients, and involved Horde/Alliance working together to stop Archimonde. The War of the Ancients was Night Elves, Ancients and Dragons working together to stop Azshara and resulted in the destruction of Kalimdor.

They're two completely different, yet reminescent, events. War of the Ancients was the first invasion of the Burning Legion on Azeroth, 10 000 years ago.The battle of mount Hyjal was the final battle of the Third War (Warcraft III), only 20 years or so agi, where the Burning Legion attempted to return to Azeroth yet again and destroy the World Tree.

Nice fail, bro.
Since Archimonde is a pretty big demon, he can't get to Azeroth just by falling from the sky. He has to be summoned.Kel'Thuzad summoned Archimonde.
