World of Warcraft Classic: The Story So Far

The universe in which World of Warcraft Classic (as well as the original game) has a long story marked by conflict and drama. The story started in a series of three real-time strategy games. It was later extended upon in World of Warcraft, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game or MMORPG.

The story depicted inWorld of Warcraft Classic and vanilla, started during the events of the game Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. In this game, the fallen titan Sargeras put in motion, a plan to exterminate all life on Azeroth. He possessed Medivh, a human sorcerer, and contacted an orc Warlock called Gul’dan on planet Draenor. Both of them opened the dark portal, allowing the orc horde, corrupted by the Burning Legion to invade Azeroth. The human army of Stormwind fought with courage but was ultimately defeated by the horde after a brutal war.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness started after the defeat of the humans. The human hero, Anduin Lothar gathered the remnants of Stormwind’s army and led them to the kingdom of Lordaeron. This marked the birth of the Alliance, which was composed of different races, humans, gnomes, elves, and dwarves. After several battles, Gul’dan and his forces abandoned the horde. However, the remaining forces of the orcs succeeded in killingLothar but were finally defeated by the Alliance led by Turalyon, Lothar’s second in command.

Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal takes place mainly on Draenor, after the victory of the Alliance. The game introduces Ner’zhul, an orc shaman, leading the forces of the Horde on Draenor. He sought to open a portal from Draenor to other worlds that his forces could invade. However, he needed some artifacts present on Azeroth to reach his goal. That put him into conflict with the forces of the Alliance. They invaded Draenor but were trapped on the planet after Ner’zhul’s schemes shattered the planet.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos started years after the events of Warcraft II. Thrall a young orc shaman, has taken the lead of the reformed horde. His goal was to flee the burning legion by going to the continent of Kalimdor. Meanwhile, Prince Arthas of the alliance was trying to fight the undead scourge released by the legion on Lordaeron. Unfortunately, he succumbed to despair and became a death knight under the order of the lich king. An alliance of humans, night elves, and orcs were able to defeat the burning legion after a hard battle.

Warcraft III extension, the frozen throne shows the aftermath of the battle and serves as a starting point to World of Warcraft Classic.
