    That was just some false information someone put up on wowwiki that stemmed from a conversation with a joking GM and someone who took him too seriously. It was because of technical problems, the blue child has always been there lore-wise, even depicted in books and comics for the past 2 years.

    time to leave azeroth .. (insert that's no moon.jpg img) i'ts not a moon i'ts an orbiting battlestation. (who wants to bet nagas become next playable race we need some fishy guy to yell .. IT'S A TRAP!! when we raid that construct that is back).

    hopefully they will fufill the whole tought that the moon is acutally a titan construct and there is a old god imprissoned in it. only the old god now has controll of it and it's planet destroying abilities. so we gotta take it out!!

    This is my notes based off if real life time between expansions:

    2004 - 622 - World of Warcraft
    2005 - 623
    2006 - 624
    2007 - 625 - World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade
    2008 - 626 - World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
    2009 - 627
    2010 - 628 - World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
    2011 - 629
    2012 - 630 - World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

    I use this formula when creating my character's backstories.

    on cata it's been 5 years since vanilla (according to westfall quests involving vanessa vancleff)

    MoP was said to happen an year after cata, so 6 year since vanilla.

    don't trust that timeline from wowwiki. WoWpedia is more trustable.

    whoever made the wowwiki timeline probably thought vancleff died during WotLK lol

    Calling it now;
    The Blue Child is a Titan Failsafe device of some kind. It's abscence was the start of some activation protocol, and we're gonna have to go diffuse the big deathmaker-in-the-sky in a future raid. Think Algalon meets Death Star with a dash of "Earth stood still".

    That or it's a titan weapon we'll use against the Legion.

    The last part of that article was from a GM having some fun. The actual reasoning it went away during vanilla was due to technical problems of the moon having graphical issues all the time.

    Matoclaw states that the Battle of M. Hyjal ended a decade ago, the vanilla intro states that it takes place 4 years after the Battle of M. Hyjal... So Vanilla to Cata = 6 years.

    I very much doubt there is 2 years between MoP and Cata or that it took 2 whole years to stop Deathwing.

    The Blue Child was active during WoW vanilla Alpha, and then got removed for no reason at all.

    Weird shit, indeed.

    Use http://www.wowpedia.org/ it's better than WoWWiki, and Blizzard links it on the official site.

    Question is, do we still have the white lady? We must have both or it will not be complete.

    In the short term I'll bet it's return is gonna be directly related to the parting of those mists that hid pandaria. Blizz could also tie it into the whole Zandalari uprising story too...

    Is it wrong that this is the part of the Beta I'm the most curious about now?

    Or it could just be a moon. That Blizz didn't use because it has a slow rotation and spent the whole time on the dark side of Azeroth.

    p.s. And I spend a ridiculous amount of time looking at the sky...it's one of my favorite things to do on flight paths. Take screenshots of the sky.
    This, one of my fondest memories of WoW back in Vanilla was during FPS to stare at the sky cause I usually played at night. So the stars and the 2 moons was fantastic to look at. When BC came and the Blue child went missing, I was actually saddened to see it missing. >.<

    I forgot where it was said or who said it, but i remember someone mentioning that each expansion lasted approximately 1 year in game time.

    I think it'd be interesting to visit the moons one day - probably filled with titan artifacts.

    I bet Algalon's observatory is built on one... he is called 'the Observer' after all (Marvel comics 'The Watcher' reference ftw).
