Although my intimate knowledge of WoW lore doesn't extend very far into the past (I started with WoW in the closing weeks of TBC), I read determinedly to expand it. In my opinion Sargeras would not be in a position to be able to influence the Old Gods, since he is of titanic design himself. It is not very plausible that one titan alone would have the potential to influence the mystery of the Old Gods over the others, since they are all complete and perfect as Mr Rossi wrote. I would conjecture that one of two situations is the case. The first and less likely is that Sargeras (lawful evil (in my opinion)) and the Old Gods (chaotic evil (presumed)) operate with unified intent, Sargeras being under the direct influence of the Old Gods. However I believe Sargeras was corrupted by the inherent chaos coexistent and interdependent of order in the universe, which is the reason for the Old Gods' existence, rather than an Old God's direct whisperings. Hence the second more likely situation: Sargeras had within him a disposition towards such a corruption by such a universally present chaos, perhaps due to his role as a protector and therefore a wager of (protective) war; any war is a chaotic process, regardless of whether it achieves or re-establishes order or fails to do so. Thus he would be operating with intent separate from the Old Gods'. The very fact that Sargeras has his nihilistic, fatalist principles separates him from the Old Gods, who do not have intent at all, and are rather analogous to entropy."Oh, what horror await..."—General Vezax
