I have a bit of a question concerning the Titan re-origination device in Uldum.Why could the mortals of Azeroth not simple take the Dark Portal to Draenor, and thenallow Algalon to re-originate Azeroth, ending the Old God threat? The mortals of Azeroth could then return when it was safe to do so, and never have to worry about Old Gods ever again. Sure, they'd have to rebuild EVERYTHING, but wouldn't it be worth it to have the Old Gods finally eradicated?

The re-origination device is huge. It's likely connected to the halls of origination complex. Judging by the size of the Forge of Wills' mechanisms, which literally spread all throughout uldum, I doubt it's as easy as lifting it up, bringing it to the blasted lands and shoving it through the dark portal- and that, of course, also glosses over the fact that there are still people living in outland: mag'har, ogres, arakkoa, sporelings, blood elves, draenei, etc, who would be killed in the reorigination.

My apologies, I totally misread your original comment.The fact of the matter is that transporting the entire population of Azeroth to Outland is just not feasible, not to mention that I doubt Outland could support that population for any amount of time. And frankly, it's probably far easier to kill the old gods rather than move the entire population to another planet and then rebuild civilization from the ground up.

@Omacron: Old Gods can't die... when you "kill" them, you simply send them back to the hole they came from, but they don't actually die. Their essence is symbiotically merged with Azeroth, if they were ever destroyed, Azeroth would be destroyed with them.

@linkers746: You're looking for an happily ever after ending. From a gameplay perspective, such thing would be the end World of Warcraft. With no enemies to defeat, what's the point of everything? No more raids, no more PvP... no nothing.From a lore perspective, how do you decide who gets to live and who gets to die? Obviously you won't take everyone thru the Dark Portal and those left behind would all die. Most of time WoW follows a "redeemable villain" ideology. To simply doom every guy that is slightly wicked isn't an option

That's thinking the same way as "why don't we just kill Arthas in Culling of Stratholme and avoid all the bloodshed and destruction?". We wouldn't have a game if we did that.

As much as this thought is interesting and amusing, I don't really think that there would be anything to rebuild on. The reply code omega includes eradication of the planet's corrupted life support. That means that every tree, all the water, the atmosphere, all the animals, probably the connections to elements and maybe even the timeline of Azeroth itself (Nozdormu (or whoever is the leader of Infinite dragonflight) would just go Chuck Norris over the whole history of the world leading to this point, trying to fix it) would be destroyed along the old gods and Deathwing. A high price for a deed that seems more and more possible to be done on our own...

@ Good4ktThere's still Sargeras, Kil'jaeden, and the rest of the Burning Legion.

3 things stick out from your idea. First is that if Azeroth was re-originated then the dark portal would be destroyed and cut off the way back home. Second who knows how long re-origination takes. I doubt it would be a quick week long vacation to outland. More than likely it would takes hundreds if not thousands of years to accomplish it. Third outland is compartively small to Azeroth. Its not even really a planet, its just a chunk of space debris floating in the nether after the portals tore draenor apart. I don't think it could hold the entire population of Azeroth.
