The (almost) Complete History of World of Warcraft

    Hidden Azeroth

    Runtime: 23:16

    Have you ever wondered who that raid boss you just killed was, how all those Hordes are different, or why Khadgar can't keep a portal closed? Well wonder no more, because in this episode I'm explaining the entire history of Azeroth!
    This is a video I've been planning for over a year and after a month of work I'm incredibly proud of the result. Enjoy!

If the audio is too fast, I recommend setting the custom speed to 0.9, it slows me down a bit without making me sound drunk like 0.75 does. Enjoy!

If you're watching this the first time, and if you're only familiar with the stories of Warcraft 1, 2, and 3, like myself, a 0.5 speed will be perfectly fine. Sorry for making you sound so funny. :D

Seeing it all like that...that's a large pile of depressingly bad writing with a ton of hype and extremely drawn out stakes. Man, writing for games is hard. You're told to sell a game to as large a crowd as possible and inevitably end up with plot points that belong in a tabloid mag.

Wait but we know now that the Jailer made the Helm of Domination and Frostmourne... Well not him himself but like he was the one who had the plans to make it... So how does this affect what we know about Ner'zhul being the helm?

Dude, that portion of the story where it is essentially the plot of the warcraft movie is way more interesting than what they showed. That whole thing where the orc woman killed the king against her will etc, I dont know, I just feel they could have done better.

As someone who just recently got into WoW I appreciate this video and see the Warcraft universe in a different light - kinda deep, 25 years of history (if you count the initial ideas of Morhaime and his crew it might even be older than that) and it's still evolving and not at its end. The initial stages seem more coherent, later on it gets really messy and difficult to grasp (not a big fan of time travel medium to convey a plot amongst other tbh). I highly recommend to watch this video on 0.75x speed, made it way more bearable and understandable to me (not a big fan of speaking too fast, would rather have a 35 minute video than listen to this, hence the play-back speed feature came in super handy on that one and turned a rather unlikeable video into a very likeable one)
