Anyone who watched the show would see it was nothing like the comics, or the movies, and did its best to dance around certain storylines.
    That is my point. Prequels you tie your hands, with a reboot you dont do it as such. The writers wanted a reboot of the original and to do that would mean thinking of a way to explain that story.

    Honeslty, I might enjoy a Steampunk/Cyberpunk version of WoW, set 8k years in the future. All the races we have, and 1/2 races in between. We already have a Human and Gnome married in the game, I would be curious to see the offspring of half races, and make it all techno based with some magic behind it. Something like Cyberpunk meets D&D. I would totally play a Gnome Data runner.

    While I often agree that prequels limit the story, I don't really think that's the case when the prequel is set over 10,000 years prior to the main series. Most of the characters in present day WoW wouldn't be alive, meaning whole new characters and storylines but with just enough continuity to keep that WoW feeling. It's like how the Lord of The Rings and the Silmarillion aren't prequels or sequels to one another (depending on whether we're going by writing or publication order) - they're simply two works in the same setting but that happen to take place in different eras.
