The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm (Part 1)

Posted 1 year, 3 months ago.
Preface “Shattering” is a powerful word. When something is shattered, it breaks into a thousand irreparable pieces. Even if you can glue it back together, it’s never quite the same again. It’s more prone to falling apart in the future. It’s usually ugly and misshapen. When something is shattered, it is never truly whole again. The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm is not about the physical shattering of Azeroth, but the shattering of life as it is known. Uneasy peace, status quo, and personal relationships…

What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been - My Return to WoW

Posted 1 year, 3 months ago.
July 2009 was the first time in almost 4 years my WoW subscription lapsed. I had already informally withdrawn from raiding, having seen the inside of Ulduar only once since its launch. I still remember my last moments online: finishing Argent Tournament dailies for the 100th time already. Feeling no more love for the game, I mounted my beloved Time-Lost Proto Drake and logged out right there, on the Argent Tournament grounds, never intending to return. In that moment, hundreds of hours of battlegrounds, end-game…

Some of these stories focus on a central character, telling their backstory or telling of a specific event in their life while others can span across years of events. In terms of overall lore, some books tell more than others. Taking place post-Dragon Soul and pre-Mists of Pandaria, Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War is one of those stories that sets the tone for an entire expansion. When…
