Didn't even know this was on the way, sounds really cool, and holy hell, Gally is one hell of a dragon!
While it's going to be incredibly captivating to read and learn more about, this feels like another awkward step for the fantasy genre that is the Wow franchise; The more is explained and laid bare, the less mystery and wonder remains.
While this is a good thing for reality, I feel it's counterproductive for fantasy.
But we'll see.
If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.
Plus who knows we could see Wrathion....
Never had the desire to read a book about WoW until now.`
I love the look of the proto-dragons. Hulking and monstrous. I wonder how they're going to represent the aspects pre-transformation - the proto-dragons always struck me as having animal level intellect. It'd spoil things a bit if the proto-Aspects are just as intelligent as their current incarnations.
Also hoping for more clues as to proto-dragon origination - whether they're naturally evolved lifeforms like the trolls or elemental drakes that were afflicted by the curse of flesh.
Oh, and from what I understand, this isn't a novel but a multi-part story series. Purely online.
This will be interesting. Not only will we learn more about the genesis of the dragons and the Aspects, but we will learn more about the Titans, their ordering of Azeroth and their war against the Old Gods. Afterall, the Aspects were created to be the guardians of Azeroth, especially against the Old Gods.
It would like if the five Aspects to be had other, more primitive names as proto-drakes and if they had more primal and brutal personalities as well. Something like furbolgs...

EDIT: Errr, it's called the Eye of the Storm and it's a Naaru thing not Titan. Serves the same purpose in the end

Looking at some of this info makes you think. What if the Dragon Aspects weren't as noble as we thought....Were they given the strength they would become legendary for...or did they earn it with blood? Kalecgos’s discoveries will change everything he knows about the events that led to the...DAWN OF THE ASPECTS
The former Dragon Aspects are on the brink of going their separate ways to forge new destinies. As Kalecgos ponders the uncertain future awaiting his kind, he uncovers a mysterious artifact that allows him to see through the eyes of his late predecessor, Malygos. Intense visions bombard Kalecgos, transporting him to a time when the original Aspects were no more than primitive proto-dragons. Across ancient Kalimdor’s northern plains, they fought for survival against each other and a terrifying creature that dominated the era: the Father of Dragons, Galakrond. But many questions remain for Kalecgos. What are the origins of this strange artifact? Are its visions a gift, or a curse?
I'm kind hoping to see if Alexstrasza was a total bitch back in the day...and then when the Titans changed her she became the Alex we know and love/fap too....
Two weeks til Part 1 comes out
It is some nice lore, though it is written by Knaak, I hope the damage to the general lore will be minimal.
He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
They are just not aspects anymore and their powers (and they are no longer immortal) have just been weakened to the level of their kin, only I think, they are still alot stronger.
I don't get what's with that hate toward Knaak, I think he's an excelent Writer (he is even anounced as one) But if there iso ne thing he good at, it's dragons.It is some nice lore, though it is written by Knaak, I hope the damage to the general lore will be minimal.
