The Quick & Dirty Primer on Azshara & the Highborne

Posted by gracedashen on July 29th, 2015

World of Warcraft has reached the end of the Warlords of Draenor expansion with the deployment of the v6.2 update and now that players have voiced their concerns (to put it kindly) with what has been felt to be a rather lackluster expansion to date, it seems a good time to begin thinking about what could possibly come next for the game.Dear wow fans , offer the safe and fast wow service, you can buy cheapest wow gold at wowtoes.we will provide the latest news for you. you can get futher information in there.Are you preparing for Warcraft of Draenor flying mounts?

Many players have expressed a hope that Blizzard will return to story, to take the time to explain some of the many mysteries that have confounded the community for years. In October of 2014, Blizzard trademarked the name "Eye of Azshara". Given that Azshara, once the ruler of Highborne Elves, is only a presence in World of Warcraft (though obviously she can be added to Hearthstone or Heroes of the Storm by virtue of "pirating" of WoW characters), it is likely that this is the name of a future expansion.

The Quick & Dirty Primer on Azshara & the Highborne

For those who are less familiar with Azshara’s and the Highborne story, here’s a crash course.

Queen Azshara had been a most beloved ruler of the night elves of Kalimdor over ten thousands years ago, and remains a current ruler of the naga of the Nazjatar Empire. After the almost successful attempt to summon the leader of the Burning Legion, Sargeras, into Azeroth, which resulted in War of the Ancients and following Great Sundering, she (along with most Highborne) was sent into the depths of the ocean. Once there she and the others were discovered and found to have been transformed into Naga by Old God N’zoth (who is presumably the Old God who drove Neltharion-Deathwing to madness).

There are many compelling reasons why Eye of Azshara could be one of the ways that Blizzard could return to lore in a big, big way. Azshara herself touches nearly all of the most popular mysteries in WoW including:

  • The Burning Legion: Xavius, adviser of Azshara, along with the Queen was working on opening the portal for the lord of the Burning Legion;
  • The Old Gods, Aspects & Titans: deemed a useful tool, Azshara and her Highborne were been transformed into Naga by an Old God, presumably N’zoth, the same entity who drove the Aspect of the Earth to madness, transforming him into Deathwing;
  • The Elemental Lords: Naga have have challenged the Elemental Lord Neptulon for dominance of the ocean. Horde and Alliance have seen to it that this plan didn’t come to pass, however, Neptulon was left without his most powerful artifact, his trident, as is revealed later in quests of Vashj’ir.
  • Naga have a long history with their night elven relatives and are connected to the Blood Elves through the Warcraft 3 campaign.
