    Trivia with the Timewalkers!

    Not sure how much traction this will get, but I figured it was something I really enjoyed as a fan of the lore. Blizzard added in a daily on the Timeless Isle where essentially you're asked a lore question. Mists of Pandaria is essentially the first expansion where Blizzard has added store just for story sake, and not gameplay. And its something I absolutely love. Here is a look at it:



    Was contemplating uploading more of the questions, but you can find them online.

    Yeahhhh! Lore for lore sake. Which is fantastic.

    I just wish they'd have like 3-5 questions per daily instead of 1.

    Awesome! Though it's too bad it's only 1 question a day..

    Also the NPC is called after Blizzards very own "master lore person" I believe. The other NPC's around there are also "historians" I think.

    Yes, cause rushing lore and skipping over the story to get to the conclusion is exactly what this daily is about xD

    I love that they put this in. I had a question about a quest mob name, forgot which one it was. I had to cheat and look it up cause there were 2 virtually the same answers that were what I thought it was.

    Its just funny how her description of the quest has nothing to do with "Answer this lore question" is all :P

    I'd like this quest to be in every future daily hub, updated each patch with a few more questions. Although some of the questions ask minor wiki information that won't make people more interested in learning lore.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    You'd get too many repetitive questions after doing them dailies for weeks in that case. :/

    There are 10+ books, 4 full-length games, not even counting WoW, and 4 expansions now.

    They could easily find enough questions.

    Added another video with some questions:

    pretty sure there was a question quest like that before.. a long chain that started in thousand needles back in vanilla, it had you go to sm, do various trials, grab some books and at the end there was a lore question and the answer was ner'zhul or kel'thuzad i forgot... quest is gone since cata of course.

    Ah, cool. Since I couldn't make an alt of another faction on the same server, I never got a Hordie alt in Vanilla that high :P
