Like any good time-traveller with omniscience and omnipotence, the titan that showed Nozdormu his death (can't recall the name sadly) is an excellent gambler with spotty results. Imagine it this way, you have a device and with it you can see the 100 possible outcomes of any given action forward through time. The wise man would never allow this device to control his actions but would use it to inform his decisions. The titans have such a device/power. When 'fixing' Azeroth they used it and saw this high likelihood that it would end in an Hour of Twilight beyond which they could not see.So the first thought, how do you get Azeroth past that Hour? First you use everything you have to push it off as long as possible. Imprison the monsters that cause it. Appoint multiple wardens at multiple sites. Create life that will desire to live rather than to serve blindly, and safeguard it with protectors (five: one to protect life, one to protect the natural world that feeds life, one to protect life forms from one another using geography, one to protect life from rapid advancement and the power that comes with it, and one to monitor the timeways to be sure the Hour itself is put off as long as possible).The machine now tells you that one of the protectors, and a great many of the life forms will betray their purpose. One will, in fact, usher in the Hour of Twilight. Now you begin placing pieces on the board to counter that. Create a life extinguishing weapon in Uldum and Ulduar - nuclear options that watchers and overseers can employ. In cleaning up the elemental madness create separate spaces for them to rage against one another, but just within reach of the world itself so that they will factor into the Hour. Why the elements? Because in the distance before the hour you can see the arrival of creatures from another world who will be masters of the elements and from whom will come the power to combat them. Finally, convince the protectors and guardians that they must do their duty or else they will face the worst possible death: replacement. With the system securely in place, the likelihood of the Hour happening is reduced, but the pawn of the Titans stands as its harbringer, and that pawn has built in weaknesses that other life forms can exploit. The system should correct itself, the hour should be averted, and future calamities will now be faced by the capable mortals that the system was devised to protect long enough to fight back against the senselessness of necrophotic death eaters.Or, to quote Blizz in regards to why the Titans would do such a thing: "Working as intended."
