    World of Wacraft lore has gotten VERY complex in the past couple of expansions. There is tons of hidden lore, mysterious motives and confusing conclusions that are more important than ever in WoW’s newest expansion, Shadowlands. Let’s find out what we NEED to know!

I'm so glad this video exists! I stopped playing warcraft like 8 years ago because it got to be too much for my wimpy, crappy, old laptop to handle. I just got back into it a few months ago and was sooooooo confused lore wise. Thanks for clearing this dumpster fire of over saturated storytelling up for me! 😃👍

So basically, the entirety of Shadowlands, is all because Sylvanas got sent to the Maw. Meanwhile, the Houndmaster, formerly of The Scarlet Crusade, got sent to Revendreth for potential redemption. Used to people to his dogs. Kael'thas, of The Legion, also sent to Revendreth. "Baroness" Vashj, former servant of the Old Gods, is living out a dream in Maldraxxus. Kel... fucking... Thuzad is in Maldraxxus. 🤔

@KiropLokiIncarnate that's a valid point. And him being a Baron can be explained away too. I guess it would be nice if the story were a bit more cohesive in this regard. WHO sent Slyvanas to the Maw? WHEN did the Arbiter get knocked out? Was it before, during, or after Sylvanas went to the Maw? Hopefully they answer these questions, and more, as the game progresses. Those aren't really questions that can be left hanging out there unanswered.

To be fair, we're not told that Kel'Thuzad got to Maldraxxus the standard way everyone else does. It's very likely that, through a deal with Sylvanas/The Jailer, he actually physically entered the Shadowlands much like us and has a physical body made from real bones/metal/whatever. Remember- pretty much all 'matter' in the Shadowlands is created from condensed/purified/byproducts of/rarified anima. Some realms let their souls use said anima to reconstruct bodies for themselves (Maldraxxus, Ardenweald) and end up much more wild/messy, and other realms 'confiscate' the majority of newcomer's anima to create and maintain the designed realms. That's why Bastion and Revendreth are much cleaner AND why their newcomers are all spirits instead of bodies.

I forgot all about how fucking dumb 8.3 was. Like they built up this storyline for 2 expansions only to get bored with it when it became time to pay it off. It's literally the most anticlimactic way for us to get rid off a giant lore threat. Multiple giant lore threats at that if we take 7.2 into consideration as well.

Not gonna lie, this new lore for Shadowlands and Sylvanas is so fucking lame. I always thought i'd be more interesting that Yogg-Saron was the one who showed that vision of the afterlife to Sylvanas, after all it is described that she fell on top of Saronite, the blood of the old god. Instead we got the most boring-ass villain ever made. Afterlife lore is cool and all but, man... N'zoth died like a bitch for this folks.

Thank you so much for this video bc I took a year and a half off so I barely knew what was going on. On top of that I always loved sylvannas and her as warchief but I also didn't understand her actions bc it seemed like she just went randomly "evil" out of nowhere after she killed saurfang who kept crying about honor. And she's not a random type person, she strategizes amd contemplates things way in advance. I wish blizz would have hinted more throughout the expansions but you explained when she went left back in wotlk, so I see now, thanks for that.

It happened I believe in some book and not in game. After Wrath since her main purpose for existing was taking down the LK, she decided to no longer live on. Once she died "again" the abyss/maw/hell version of WoW was too much for her and wanted out. So a Valkry being offered to take her place instead and....that's how she got back.

I'l have to agree with you. The starting event of battle for Darkshore was lame at best. It totally diminished the so called power of the Night Warrior stuff. She couldn't even beat Nathanos. Perhaps if she was facing Sylvanas herself, which also had some new weird powers - great oportunity to hint them for the first time too - but, no: her freaking friendzoned pet. But it has been some time WoW lore don't have any worries about coherence... Azshara collecting the Tidestone of Golganneth offscreen is kinda par for the course with Blizzard's writers. They are just stopping pretending to care. I mean. Uther is a fallen angel. Fuck you, Blizzard.

Vor 4 Monate

My theory: Uther broke the Shadowlands inner workings. When he and Devos caught Arthas soul and sent it to the Maw without judgement, that's when the Arbiter was shut down. Without the Arbiter, all souls started flowing to the Maw as well. Everyone we recognize that are in the Maw died after the events of Wrath of the Lich King. The ones we recognize outside died before.

Oh yeah. The Tidestone. Walked through one of the most boring dungeons in Legion, which had a lot of good dungeons in comparison to BfA's shitfests, to get that thing. And of course they immediately lose it to Azshara in the next expansion, SOMEHOW. Almost makes it seem like the precautions and stuff you're doing is trivial from one expansion to another.
