In retrospect it's quite amazing to see how rich a story they weaved from games that were actually so low on actual story and plot. The leader of this market is World of Warcraft chronicle volume 2. Nonetheless, the story of Medivh and Khadgar is well-written. We also get introduce to the events of the first Horde Invasion of Azeroth Warcraft I and second where the battle gets to the eastern seas until to the battle beyond the dark portal What a great book for the Lore fan Chronicle Vol. The Chronicle begins with a detailed backstory of Draenor, which I thought was probably the best element of the book.
Now, it was the first task the keepers accomplished after the fall of the Black Empire, before they began shaping Azeroth. This last detail reflects a disturbing pattern in World of Warcraft.

Again, the only bad thing about this book is the Czech translation, which is very inconsistent with its dealing with names, sometimes it translates them, sometimes don't and so on, it spoils the reading experience. They are forced to invade Azeroth after utterly ruining their native world.
In wow, many of the modern races are devolved, degenerated forms of previously superior predecessors and these offspring though initially lesser than their sires have now reached or reaching a point where they are building themselves up and advancing again.

I'm not sure that someone that hasn't played the game would really enjoy it nor would I expect them to do so.
Each of these Volumes is stunningly beautiful. Volume 2 will reveal more sought-after details about the game universe's history and mythology.

In WoD the ogre empire was stil going strong having slaves and being a more advanced. I notice that night elves, Tauren and Pandaren went the opposite, with night elves the only ones to have been elevated from an already fully evolved race. Also, plot of the movie is slightly different. The war machines that had so devastated Shattrath several months earlier now were again pressed into service, repaired, oiled, and tested. I had no idea about the first Death Knights and how different they are from my little Draenei Death Knight who runs around with her ghoul.

Es como un rejunte de Rise of the Horde, The Last Guardian, Tides of Darkness y Beyond the Dark Portal. Like anything to do with Draenor, the most interesting parts are about the arakkoa and the least interesting are the orcs, so of course the book is mostly about the orcs.
