It says something about Spoiler Protection of some sort, so that a reader has to select the text to see the information. It gives an example of this, but it does not occur in any part of the Timeline. What's the point of it then?--Neri 05:33, 20 Feb 2006 (EST)


I could have sworn that Warcraft 3 took place 15 years after Warcraft II, yet it's listed as 19 years. 6 + 15 does not equal 25. -Kongurous 23:46, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

That date has been changed many times, the listing here is the most up to date resolution of the date and should be correct. I can't confirm because I don't know the detials or the source anymore, as i stupidly didn't make notes. Baggins, who heavily contributed to this behind the scenes can probably answer it better. --User:Zeal/Sig2 23:54, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Actually, seems its the result of changes post-wow to the timeline via the RPG and novels. See the more recent official timelines for details. --User:Zeal/Sig2 00:00, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

War of the shifting sands, problem.

the timeline on the main page shows the war of the shifting sands to happen before the war of the ancients, but that conflicts with events detailed in the war of the ancients trilogy. During the war malfurian was young and not yet mated to Tyrande, but in wow it is quite clear that malfurion's son was killed by General Rajaxx of the Quirajii, not to mention that during the war of the ancients malfurion was somewhat unknown and in the war of the shifting sands he was clearly a powerful leader of his people.

Malfurion doesn't have a son. You're confusing Malfurion with Fandral Staghelm. -- Maenos 22:29, 14 November 2006 (EST)
In The War of the Shifting Sands Shiromar recalls the war "as if it were only yesterday and not a thousand years past" during the opening of the scarab wall. Not very precise but that may help place the war in the timeline. I cannot find any reference to the war as occurring prior to the war of the anchients as described above. Can anyone else locate such a source? Micron 22:09, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

It was said to to be one thousand years ago in TBC manual as well.Baggins 22:06, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

"The spirit of Balnazzar"

In the section of the article entitled Between 21 and 25 Years After the First War, there's a note that the "spirit of Balnazzar [...] possesses the body of the paladin Saiden Dathrohan." This seems inaccurate, since when you kill Dathrohan, he transforms into Balnazzar, not resurrects Balnazzar. It seems more likely that the dreadlord is actually masquerading as this paladin rather than possessing his body. See the article on Balnazzar for more information. I'd like to change that note to something more accurate but can't quite think of what that might be yet. // Montagg (talk · contr)

Well actually it is a possession, of a corpse.Baggins 16:07, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Revision as of 19:29, 7 January 2007 (EST)

This timeline has been compiled and completele revised to match the latest official sources, taking retcons into account. The events and sources are now marked and offlinked from the timeline. This means all events Blizzard consider important and have provided an ability to order and determine relations by are present. This means no adding on random notes of events from the sources, as these are already included in the written accounts and the sources from Blizzard and would be very messy, difficult to place, and would result in admins needing to determine what what deserves to be added, and when enough is enough. It's better to leave this up to Blizzard. Feel free to question and discuss issues you may see, and make correction. I will be revising this personally on the release of each new source a information revealed from them. --Zeal (talk - contr - web) 19:29, 7 January 2007 (EST)


  • Rest of the In-Game books
  • In-game stories and pecies of text
  • War of the Shifting sands and other patch related stories from the official site
  • Double checking all the RPG placements


Just to point out i'm no longer maintaining this page (infact, i stopped a long time ago now). I will however be updating the one in my userspace here from which anyone is welcome to update this one where they see fit. --User:Zeal/Sig2 12:23, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Add the fall of the Betrayer?

Maybe we should add a few events to the latest facts of this timeline.--K ) (talk) 14:42, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

The Temple of Atal'Hakkar and the Gurubashi Empire

In the world dungeons page the temple's destruction is described as "over a thousand years ago". DO we have enough information to be more precise and relate the initial summoning of Hakkar to other events in the timeline or the Gurubashi empire's history? Micron 22:09, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

New Horde

Lord of the Clans and the New horde are misplaced. They would allow for Thrall to be only 10 year old during the liberation of the orcs, who's lethargy would have only lasted two years with this placement. Also, Lord of the Clans takes place at roughly the same time as Of Blood and Honor, which is listed as taking place ten years later.Tweak the Whacked 21:04, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
