    Baine Bloodhoof and Anduin Wrynn are friends?



    This shows when you ask Dezco why he doesn't capture Anduin Wrynn.

    "Besides, this little one has earned the friendship and trust of High Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof. For that reason, consider him under my protection." - So Baine and Anduin are friends? Did I miss something in the lore?

    1 book. The Shattering, Prelude to the Cataclysm.

    They became friends in The Shattering. A decent read, but a shame all the massively important events there are hardly mentioned in game.

    They met each other on Theramore, when Anduin was there and Baine asked Jaina for help against the Grimtotem coup. Baine even used for a while the Fearbreaker, a mace that Anduin gave to him (returned back during the Theramore's Fall event).

    It was one book pawl. They're basically the newer Alliance Horde vie for peace friendship generation. Last one was Jaina Proudmoore and Thrall. Now it's Anduin and Baine.

    Well fortunately not everyone kisses Garrosh's Orcish feet :P

    Don't forget you have to play every class and earn exclusive legendary weapons just to know what's going on.

    Blizzard actually released the end video of what happens to Wrathion for the Rogue Legendary quest. *Tsk*

    I think the point is that the game's lore should be in, you know, the game.

    Point taken and noted, still doesn't hurt to be resourceful ;D

    Yeah you need to do some outside reading to keep up to date on all the lore. I don't mind little bits like this being in books and I don't know why one or two people are kicking up a fuss about this. Baine and Anduin met and they became friends. Hardly ground breaking stuff that will alter the lore in any significant shape. That's what you missed out on OP.

    There is also a mention of Baine and Anduin friendship in Tides of War novel. But of course, The Shattering explains it much in detail.

    On the websites though you get very little if any dialogue and it's just stated facts, it's a clever but greedy marketing scheme. Screw over anyone who is interested in the lore without money to spare for books.

    Either read the books or read wowpedia.

    This isn't something new and has been old news for the past 2 years.

    How else do you expect such lore to be brought to you otherwise? Practically all lore in books is either incredibly hard or impossible to show in-game. I don't really see how it's greedy in that way.
