World of Warcraft is an expansive universe. You're playing the game, you're fighting the bosses, you know the how, but do you know the why? Each week, Matthew Rossi and Anne Stickney make sure you Know Your Lore by covering the history of the story behind
World of Warcraft.
WARNING: The following post contains spoilers for World of Warcraft: The Comic
. Players who are currently reading through the comics or simply wish to avoid spoilers from the series should avoid this post.
We're taking a step back from Alliance politics
this week in light of some new information from the 3.3.5 PTR
. The servers have been laggy and somewhat unstable, but I've still been able to log on and play through a few things. One of those things is an interesting new quest chain available in Orgrimmar involving Doomsday Cultists who are suddenly making appearances in the Drag and talking about the end of the world as we know it
The biggest thing that sparked my interest was mention of Cho'gall
. Matthew Rossi did an excellent write-up
of the Twilight's Hammer and their leader Cho'gall, but what struck my interest was that Cho'gall's presence in game may lead to more interplay between story lines from the Warcraft
comic series and World of Warcraft
itself. However, while I made the connection readily enough, there are plenty out there who haven't read the comics and have no idea who Cho'gall, Med'an or any of the other characters I've referenced in previous posts actually are
In light of this, today we're going to be talking about the last half of the Warcraft
comics series -- what happened in them, who was introduced, who died, what happened with Cho'gall, why Silithus was suddenly relevant again, and most of all, who the heck that Med'an kid is that I've been going on about. As I will be talking about these things in detail, this post is absolutely brim full of spoilers for the comics series; readers who are interested in picking up the comics and reading through them may want to veer away from this post.
