So you're saying Knaack is omniscient? ;)Realistically, Blizzard should never settle this. This issue is nowhere near as muddy as real history is, and Blizzard should not cater to fans who insist history be wildly, unrealistically sharp and accurate in a fantasy world, when realistically, it should be even muddier. It's the kind of question that no one should really know the answer to, and there should be conflicting evidence galore if it's to be at all realistically portrayed as history. Instead, fans want history to be as well known as if it happened just yesterday, more or less destroying the feeling of depth that history, legend, and myth ought to have. You remove all the mystique by parting the shrouds of time too completely. You destroy the mythic feel of a backstory by giving it the crystalline clarity of a court transcript.
