Is it really correct to use the cover image of the previous book? Xavius, the Satyr Lord 10:02, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

A new pic has been added by someone.. and guessing from it Vereesa, that male blood elf and the draenei will be the main characters.. -Rovdyr 14:22, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

The elven character in the middle could be Krasus -Archmage Rodyn 2:51 PM -5 GMT, 29 April 2008

I take it that the draenei character has officially been established as female? (If it's important that the blood elf character is male, this seems equally so.)

Given the cover art, I would imagine so. -- Dark T Zeratul 09:35, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
The elf in the middle looks like Krasus...or anyway it's more like an High Elf than a Blood Elf--Gorund 17:48, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

It looks a lot like how he did on the cover The Well of Eternity so most likely it is him. Leviathon 03:35, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

i'm pretty sure the elf in the middle is krasus because the description of him in the beginning of the book says he has black and red streaks in his hair Nickorr171

Renegade blood elf

A renegade male blood elf will be involved. Fifty bucks says he has a magical panther. --Super Bhaal 17:12, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

I'll take that and see your 50 bucks with another 5. I bet it's a dragonhawk. I'm not bashing your theory, but how'd you find that one out? Oh and Krasus looks SCARY.  IconSmall HighElf Male Mr.X8 Talk Contribs 00:56, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Krasus seems to use the Cult of the Damned skin...--SWM2448 01:17, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

As much as I'd like to raise the stakes, X8, I don't get paid enough to take such risks. Sixty's as high as I'm going. As for my theory? It was a stab at everyone's favorite renegade dark elf from the Forgotten Realms, Drizzt Do'Urden and his magical panther buddy Guenwhyvar.
Now, Krasus, I think he's supposed to look like a Highborne. He's tall and colorful like a night elf, but at the same time he looks a little sickly like a high elf. --Super Bhaal 02:57, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

lol I can't believe I took that seriously.  IconSmall HighElf Male Mr.X8 Talk Contribs 12:43, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Hehe I took that seriously at first too when I first read tha , btw I bet he's not even going to have a pet :D (Marakanis (talk) 08:42, 29 May 2008 (UTC))

I bet *checks money* 2 Gold on him wielding dual scimitars. Inv misc orb 04Xavius, the Satyr Lord 19:25, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Points at the TCG* You 2 Golds and an epic socket gem that it IS the elf-rogue from the TCG...--Maibe (talk) 18:13, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
You're on! And because I don't know a whole lot about betting, I'm going to bet you five gold that this elf is going to steal the show from the rest of the characters, carry two named scimitars (Sparkle and Flamingdeath), and be on the run from a dysfunctional family headed by a misandristic matriarch and from his dark past (which he talks about in letters at the beginning of every chapter). I as well bet another five gold that he'll have violet eyes and silver hair. --Super Bhaal (talk) 18:31, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

More Things to Put Under Plot

found these here.

We will see the Shadow of the Black Dragonflight (I don't know what that means).

We'll see someone from a family (I think a family of dragons) from which we have not heard, along with the first hints of something new.

The female Draenei is a priestess named Iridi.

Menethil Harbor and Ratchet will be a significant part.

We'll meet another member of the Windrunner family, which isn't necessarily a good thing for Vareesa. Meneldir (talk) 13:45, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

With "shadow", he probably means something like it's legacy. And nothing says Menethil and Ratchet will feature significantly. Another thing: what on Azeroth is the "skardyn"? It's some kind of race, but what exactly? Inv misc orb 04Xavius, the Satyr Lord 13:58, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
The Skardyn are Dark Iron Dwarfs mixed with Black Dragons. I'm guessing Sinestra found a way to merge the two species. (Omega2010 (talk) 05:21, 3 December 2008 (UTC))
Gods, why can't Knaak answer a simple Yes/No question >_< From the interview I do not feel like the book will bring anything good.--Maibe (talk) 14:10, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Simple: he's not allowed to. Blizzard undoubtedly makes authors sign NDAs for every book they write, and Knaak is no exception. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:43, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, there's a surprise appearance by one character who hasn't appeared in the novels yet. (Omega2010 (talk) 07:52, 18 November 2008 (UTC))


I just got this in the mail today from amazon, despite the site's posted (and now incorrect) release date. Happy reading everyone! Bentup (talk)

I just picked up my copy at Barnes & Noble. In fact its appropriate that the novel came out on WotLK Launch Day since Dalaran is a major part of the plot. I just love how the novels get released early. I guess we have to wait a bit before posting plot info? (Omega2010 (talk) 21:27, 14 November 2008 (UTC))

Actually, in the U.S. WotLK was released on the 13th, 3 days before NotD was released.--Drakolord7 (talk) 20:26, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Just to clarify, I picked up my copy on the 14th but I was informed that my order arrived on the 13th. That means the book was out at the same time as Wrath. (Omega2010 (talk) 05:18, 3 December 2008 (UTC))

Story Summary

Does anyone who's read the book have a summary of the story? Even a partial one?--Drakolord7 (talk) 00:22, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

There's 2 week spoiler rule, if you want to put it that way. Give people the chance to read the book before giving a summary and spoilers :) --Maibe (talk) 20:55, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, I haven't read it, and I'm not planning on buying it. Not saying I won't, but probably not. Any idea when the 2 week rule is done?--Drakolord7 (talk) 00:17, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Should be the 1st, I believe. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 09:14, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Cover people

It says under the section Cover that there is "an unknown night elf" depicted. Isn't that Krasus? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 04:01, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Fish-like dwarves?

Are there really fish-like dwarves in this book? That would be a new race if I ever saw one. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 04:29, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

i'm guessing from what ive read that they are dwarves mixed with black dragon dna this is just a guess from the descriptions in the book Nickorr171

The Skardyn, and I don't recall them being described as "fish-like". They are compared to dragons, not fishes. This "black dragon DNA" thing I cannot recall either. Inv misc orb 04Xavius, the Satyr Lord 15:59, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
