There is a big chunk of story already missing from all the Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria lore. Example, where is Rexxar when we need him, not even for warchief, but to help the horde? Why did Tyrande go berserk? Why has Garrosh become a racist dictator, since the last time we saw him he was simply an inexperienced leader? Why does Wrathion think hes the last black dragon? These things, and more, can be explained this way, and I saw it fit to do such.
But, to, why go back to Garrosh's time? Simply for Continuity time's sake, so go azeroth (cata), Outlands (cata), Wotlk (CoT-cata), Cata, MoP, then new expansion. Its all for cohesive and continuity story.
Ill be honest I didn't read any of it, but I would enjoy an outland revamp if done correctly.

I don't want unique quest rewards and dungeon drops to disappear.. revamped zones and instances had made some of my alt to be unable to get some unique looks for xmogs such as the Bloodmail set from Scholomance or the Scarlet Crusade set from SM.. or worse, some mounts are now extinct
I love it, great job. I think it's time for an Outland revamp as well (I think the 1-60 revamped content is some of the best content in the game)...would be nice if they rolled out such a revamp if they ever introduced demon hunters as a hero class, the class could start in Outlands.
Nice read but I don't want more revamps.
New content is infinitely more exciting to me
While I'm all in favour of Outland (and Northrend for that matter) being revamped I think it should be as 90+ zones so as not to run into the same problem as Cata.
I stopped reading at "With Garrosh going from the inexperienced to a ruthless dictator..." because that's really not true. Garrosh was a huge douchebag in Northrend, considering in his conversation with Saurfang in Borean Tundra where he only considers things like supply lines an excuse to destroy the Alliance, and tries to justify the Orc's slaughter of Draenei children with "But surely you do cannot think that those children were born into innocence? They would have grown up and taken arms against us!" - among other things he pulls in Northrend.
There's no point in trying to fill plotholes that aren't really plotholes.
Woah, you took your time.
But Outland shouldn't be revamped, it's the last remaining thing we have of early WoW, too much nostalgia comes from that place. I love outlands the way it is and wish for Blizzard to not ruin it.
