    5.1 spoilers - Origins of the Demons

    Interesting bit revealed during Patch 5.1 events involving the Black Harvest warlocks:

    # Your kind far predates Sargeras's betrayal. What WERE you?
    # This knowledge is useless... what are you trying to achieve, Kanrethad?
    # STAY OUT OF THIS! The demon will answer, NOW!
    # What an odd demand. Not even my own kind care about our origins. Why should you?
    # If you do not care then there is no harm telling me.
    # ... before Sargeras freed us, we were the Titan's hounds. Forever enslaved to police the use of arcane.
    The Doomguard, the 'Ered'ruin,' were apparently a servitor race of the Titans, presumably created by them like every other servitor race they've used in the past. How many other demons were failed, outcast, or corrupted Titan races, I wonder? How much of Sargeras' job fighting demons was really him cleaning up the messes of his fellows?

    Lots of other interesting tidbits on the front page right now.

    Doomguards rebelling against their Titan oppressors vs. Pandaren rebelling against their Mogu'shan opressors.

    Seems the demons might not all be as evil as we assume they are.

    That's pretty interesting, wouldn't be surprised if observers and possibly felhounds were the same.

    It seems for the most part they'll serve whoever can feed them magic or something, it just so happens that Sargeras and the Legion have a LOT of power from conquered worlds to spare.
    He is the life of guilds he has never joined.
    He once had a noobish moment- just to see what it felt like.
    If he were to beat you in a duel, you would have to fight the strong urge to thank him.
    The Lunar Elders have a holiday in which they honor him.
    He can speak Darnassian. In Orcish.

    What a delicious and juicy and savory crispy bacon wrapped ball of lore.
    I love that Blizzard is developing the lore and world more using scenarios.


    The stuff about Illidan's power source, I wonder if he used the vial of the Well of Eternity to create the source they're talking about.

    Either that or the demon is lying. They aren't exactly known for their honesty.

    Corrupted/altered creations are a theme in WoW though. Humans, Dwarves and Gnomes were originally Titan constructs, Dragons were altered by the Titans to suit their purpose, Satyr and Naga are altered Night Elves (who are altered Trolls). Wouldn't suprise me if Pandaren are altered Furblogs, back when Pandaria was part of Kalimdor.

    But yeah, interesting.

    I'm pretty sure that in the "original" Pandaren lore, before it was re-written when were officially added to WoW, it was mentioned that they were related to furbolgs. And let's not forget the high elves who were also once night elves, the troggs who were earthen that took to Curse of Flesh badly, the Broken and Lost Ones who were once draenei... a lot of the races in Warcraft are connected somehow.

    We do know the Mogu created the Pandaren with their flesh magic to be farmers and slaves. We don't know if they used furbolg, but it's possible.

    And I really doubt Blizzard really would go to the trouble for such a detailed and lore heavy bit of news just to have it be a lie. It's rare enough they even give us such lore heavy new content.

    True enough. It is only their side of the story though.

    The Mogu confuse me a little. Are they actually living statues, or can they just turn to stone, or are they able to make golems that act exactly like fleshy Mogu?

    And maybe Furblogs are feral Pandaren that degenerated after being cut off from Pandaria (or are twisted by the Well of Eternity).

    Living beings, that have the ability to add life (bind souls for example) to unliving things, like statues. The real mogu are flesh and blood, but all their quilen and statues have living souls inside, but were crafted from stone.

    Warlock has always been one of the iconic classes of the Horde in my opinion, should always be proud!

    would be interesting in a lore perspective if we can see there reasons for joining the legion in the 1st place,either free willingly for power or forced to because they were invaded,either way it might give them a plight and rare idea,freeing them from the legions grasp

    I can understand your shame then, hiding in that bar in the park, pretending to be a mage. The horror!

    Everything is more and more pointing towards the possibility that Sargeras might ultimately be the "good guy" compared to the Titans.

    Well, The Demons were created by Sargeras to "Dispel" any Corrupted races (Since the old gods were corrupting races). So..idk man..
    Howay the lads!
