@QM: You are glorifying the other races. Gnomes and Dwarves (and to some extent Trolls) had no lore to speak of at the time of WoW launch. Specially gnomes since they only make some few appearances during WIII and WII, and as animations, no hero or npc was ever a gnome in those games. Then in Burning Crusade: For the Draenei, The "years of established lore" you talk about is 1 (one) mention on the WII manual, and a weird appearance in WII as 'broken'; all to be retconed in WoW. And for the Blood Elves, (oh the blood elves!): The BE were the followers of Kaelthas who supposedly managed to escape with Illidan, if not all, most them; and they supposedly were few of them to begin with. Enter BC we have an entire city full of them who survived the attack of the scourge, didn't manage to escape, but are still mad about that mean, mean human captain who mistreated their beloved Kaelthas, so they join the Horde. And cataclysm. Worgens. They came out of freaking nowhere. there were 4 worgen hotspots in the whole game, 1 incomplete quest chain, and that's that. Everything about worgens came afterwards.Pandas? Chen helped Rexxar (The most awesome hero in the whole history of Azeroth and Dreanor) help Thrall build Orgrimar. That's no joke. And that's all there was to it. No retcons, all new from now on. I don't see why it's so far fetched.
