This is just a theory, but perhaps the Titans placed the Well of Eternity as a sort of prison for the Old Gods, and the magic maintained the world. They had a connection to it; They needed a portal IN IT to escape from their prison. It may be the only door to the place they remain... --Gigawolf1
There's no connection between the old gods and the Dark Portal... True, Nozdormu was sucked by tentacles from a blackness like the well but the portal above the well was random, aswell as the arrival of Deathwing there and the Demon Soul (all see the War of the Ancients Trilogy..) but again, all of these events are random, Malfurion could've destroyed the portal with other things... but I think there is some connection between the Burning Legion and the Old Gods...
Another Theory By Creator:
- note: this is an UNofficial theory which wasn't prooved by Blizzard or any Warcraft Lore official resource.
The Theory of The Well of Eternity: In the map of Azaroth, if we look on the two areas in both Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms, we can see two zones with a hole in its structure, those zones are the Wetlands and Azshara. Azshara was known where there were Temples of Elune, which we can see clearly if we travel there in World of Warcraft. From what is known to me, there is no telling where does Zin-Azsharai, The Well and Suramar was, so, i assume by the name of the zone: "Azshara" that those were there. So, if you merge the two isles you will get one huge landscape which once was Kalimdor itself. But, there will be a hole in the middle, between Azshara and the Wetlands, that was, before the Burning Legion's first invasion to Azaroth, where Azshara's glourius palace, Zin-Azsharai, and the Well of Eternity, once were. That Explains why there are Nagas on the Shore of Azshara, and why there is a hole between Azshara and The Wetlands.
Again, this theory WAS NOT proved by any offical Warcraft source. --Creator
- A pretty good theory (what's it a theory of, exactly), apart from one thing: the continents weren't blasted apart during the Sundering, most of the landmass was simply flooded. That's why the ruins of Suramar are in the Broken Isles. --Ragestorm 19:26, 17 November 2006 (EST)
So why does the area after Ashenvale on Kalimdor is particularly called 'Azshara'? I've read the entire trilogy of Richard A. Knaak and The Sundering aswel (of course), and i know the well actually mostly exploded and just made a giant Tsunami but still, how come that part of Kalimdor sank soo deeply beneath the Great Sea? and it ain't beneath the Malestorm because, Maiev was there, aswell as Illidan, so they didn't become Naga just to visit it... aswel as Tomb of Sargeras... It was in the capital? kinda wierd when it says that he 'died' in the portal... well, here see, it says the tomb is in Suramar: "The term Tomb of Sargeras refers to the remnants of the Temple of Elune in the ancient Kaldorei city of Suramar". It also says that the Aspects were the ones who drowned the isle, which means it was up for a while (till they drowned it and then Gul'dan raised it back up...). Well, think about it that way: in World of Warcraft and according to the lore, Azshara's palace (and the first\second Dark Portal it doesn't matter) should be just underneath the Malestorm. I don't think that the land was so vast that Kalimdor was back than where it is today and the lands weren't blasted apart. I still think my theory is quite correct... =] 23 January 07 15:20 (GMT+2) -Creator
- Quoted from Lands of Mystery:
After the Great Sundering, a good part of Ashenvale was renamed Azshara to remind the night elves of the mistakes.
- That should probably settle the debate? 11:39, 23 January 2007 (EST)
How many did Illidan take exactly? About four were used to make the new well, and Dath'Remar found one... Does anyone know how many of those things are still around? One was powerful enough to bring back Kel'Thuzad, so I think we should know if there are any left out there...
- Illidan took seven vials. Three are in the new Well, one is the Sunwell, and Vashj and Kael each have one. The the final one is probably held by either Illidan or Tyrande, assuming it wasn't a component of Teldrassil.-- (talk · contr) 15:13, 21 February 2007 (EST)
Wells and dragons?
Does anyone know if the Titans made a well of Eternity and empowered one of the greatest species to protect every world they visited, or did they just feel like doing it on Azeroth? -Rovdyr
- Sign your posts, properly, please. We don't know- since both were developed in response to the Old Gods, it makes more sense that it was unique to Azeroth. However, since no descriptions of other Orderings have reached us, we cannot be certain. -_ (talk · contr) 19:13, 26 January 2007 (EST)
I've not been using this page for that long, and was actually wondering some kinda template that makes that "_Ragestorm (talk · contr) 19:13, 26 January 2007 (EST)" though this is probably not the place to talk about it -Rovdyr
Thanks alot -Rovdyr 16:10, 1 February 2007 (EST)
(cough) anyone here? If noone has responded to this in a day or two I'll remove it.. -Rovdyr 19:33, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Alright, it's out -Rovdyr 22:25, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
The Kaldorei and the Well of Eternity
The in-game book, "The Kaldorei and the Well of Eternity", redirects here but I don't see ALL of what's written in the book written out here... Is there a good reason as to why this is such? Yes, "we haven't gotten around to transcribing the book here" is a good reason, the case of which would likely cause me to transcribe it myself.
