Dec 5th 2011 8:58PM Although Parallel Context addressed the issue, I think one could argue that the extent of the legion's corruption is viewed in many more gene pools than just the Draenei and Elves.
As the article mentioned, the brown orcs of Draenor were corrupted into the fel orcs and chaos orcs we see in Hellfire Pennisula and to a lesser extent the current playable race.
The forsaken, the undead in general, are all a product of the Lich King, originally created by the Legion.
The elves and Draenei were not only shaped by the legion's actions as the article described but were altered to their Man'ari eredar, broken, lost ones, wrathguard, satyrs, blood elves, wretched and felblood elf off shoots.
Many of the local denizens of Azeroth have become curropted as well such as dragons, furgbogs, and even spiders!
I'd be interested in learning if the Burning Legion is similar to Starcraft's zerg where a mutation at the genetic level eventually brings in new species into the fold. What are some similar characteristics between corrupted creature and full-fledged demons? General madness, bad hair days, and fiery appendages?
Jun 1st 2010 6:21PM I agree! It might be one of those RP/Lore crossover topics but some explanation on the nature of the schools of magic would be really useful. For example, some clarification on how certain races that don't practice the light also maintain the priest class (blood elves?). You could really get into all the racial flavor of some of the more interesting class combination.

May 29th 2010 12:34PM The tome in The Master's Glaive that sits on top of a stand. When I first made a druid and was questing through Darkshore, nothing freaked me out more than a huge, clawed arm coming out of that book and giving me the back hand.

May 4th 2010 4:33PM I made a new death knight for the purpose of redoing all the incredibly lengthy, 60ish quest chains that end up being epic adventures taking me all over Old Azeroth to get in some of the sights before they might change. Although some quests require a group or a level 80, many elites were changed to be soloable a few patches back. What I really enjoy about these quests is that Blizzard took the opportunity to really show us the lore behind the loot and conflicts of instances in these quests. Among the epic chains on the to do list...
Razelikh the Defiler - Fallen Hero of the Horde (Blasted Lands, Azshara)
Emperor Thaurissan - (Burning Steppes, BRD)
Tirion Fordring's Story - Before the Crusade (EPL, Strat live, WPL)
The Battle of Darrowshire - Little Pamela (WPL, EPL)
It's a Secret to Everybody - Linken (Un'goro Crater)
Dawn's Gambit - Broodling Essence (Burning Steppes, Winterspring, WPL, Scholomance)
Paladin/Warlock Mount Chain
And for the truly adventuresome/insane - Dungeon Set 2 (.5) Mega Quest Chain! (no deathknights)
WoW.com bloggers already wrote a bunch of quest guides for some of the really cool quests that I think would be really enjoyable to complete before Cataclysm:
Hunter only Rhok'delar, Longbow of the Ancient Keepers
Priest only Benediction
Arko'narin - Epic Felwood Escort
Does anyone else have some epic quests they remember or forgot to ever wrap up from their leveling past?

Mar 27th 2010 1:32PM As a druid, I use to use the /script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("\124cff0070dd\124Hitem:17191:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Scepter of Celebras]\124h\124r"); back when it was needed to access the final wing of Maraudon. It's such a fantastic, nature oriented instance with the huge waterfalls and flowers.
Other than that, getting teleported up to peak of the Twin Colossals in Feralas never gets old! The place is especially fun for anyone who has watched Tales of the Past.
Mar 1st 2010 3:08PM When running Shadowfang Keep during Love is in the Air, did anyone else notice Arugal on the other side of the courthouse gate when you first enter the instance? Has he always been there at that location or was he added for the Love is in the Air boss event?
