However, if you're just trying to understand the recent plots, this isn't the book for you because it only tells about the events before the Dark Portal and the history behind Azeroth.
It was overall an enjoyable read, even though it took me a long while to finish it. The art incorporated was more tha ...more
I promise I'm not nerdy!!!
(I am. I totally am.)
ANYWHOOO. This book was 100% awesome. But a small warning: it's not for the casual WoW player, or for someone who is looking for a traditional "story." In short, this is the history of Azeroth from the VERY beginning - literally before the universe was formed - and it goes DEEP. It is more a solid history book than anything, but if that's what you want (it was what I wanted) ...more
YASS Who thought World of Warcraft will save my day ?! LOL The stories are just so interesting. I've always loved The Blizzard Trailers for their stories and art. BUT THIS ONE OMG. <3 It's everything I've ever wanted! ...more
There's something truly magical about Warcraft as a series. I think I can speak for many people when I say Azeroth often feels more like home than my actual home in real life. Experiencing this world on the daily basis and having so many fond memories of it, I do consider it a big part of my life at this point. As I read this book, I found myself going "ohhh, I get why that thing is there now!" or "I've seen that!" quite a few times, and it was great.
This book is the first volume of a l ...more
Reading this book definitely helped me to understand the world a bit better. The first chapter is all about the creation of this universe, which ...more
I have mixed thoughts on this one. As a fan of Warcraft I found aspects in this, and the history it shares, that I really enjoyed. On the other hand, it was very technical and extremely bland in context. If it wasn't for the fact that the subject interested me so much, there is no way I would have plowed through this. There was no personality behind this at all. Very, very dry.
This is not a book to read if you are just curious about Warcraft. No. This is for the fans. If I had not playe ...more
In 1994, gamers were first introduced to the Warcraft universe with Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, a real-time strategy (RTS) game; however, it was on the tenth anniversary that World of Warcraft (also known as WoW) was released as a massive, multiplayer, online role-playing game (MMORPG). In the intervening years, several expansion sets have been released, with a sixth expansion announced last August and anticipated to drop later this autumn. As of late last year, a Forbes ar ...more
I must admit that at some point there are a lot of "extra" information that is kind of boring, but i guess thats the cost of having a detailed introduction to the world.
The story begins long before Azeroth was known to the titans. It starts with the primal forces of light an ...more
