However if you read The Shattering, you will remember that Cairne Bloodhoof and Garrosh fight off waves of Kvaldir at Garrosh's Landing when Garrosh and most other Northrend veterans get back to Orgrimmar. The tauren states that when he sees a Kvaldir from upclose that it's just a normal humanoid, wearing seaweed and ravaged clothing to scare of foes. Nothing ghostly or watery about them.This really bothered me, since ingame they splatch into some seaweed/water mixture when they die, while they should just fall on the ground and be a normal corpse. Anyone has an explanation for this?

"Yeah Alex, what's up with that?"

The answer is simple: The game content and book contents are not interchangeable. Blizzard oversees the books, but has stated that what is found in those pages does not necessarily hold any sway over what happens in-game."They're more like guidelines, really."

Books are 'secondary canon', and therefore can be overwritten at any time.Fortunately Blizzard only changes minor details like that rather than completely retconning the entire plot of the last half of the best book ever written for their franchise simply because they can, unlike another dev that currently works with Activision.(Yes Bungie, I'm still mad.)

It was the normal guys dressing up like the ghost guys because they're spookier. At least that what I like to pretend happened.

In a roundabout way, let's explain Star Wars lore according to George Lucas.Movie > Books > Radio plays > Whatever else.If one in the previous line trumps the next, it's canon.If something is contridicted in the radio plays by one of the (trilogy, not EU) books, then it's official canon. If the movie contridicts something in one of the books, then it's official.So, in that same way, I don't know if Blizzard has a tree, but it could go like this,Game > Books > Comic books > RPG board game.
