The place where the Well of Eternity once stood is now known as The Maelstrom. Kalimdor is slip into 3 continents today known as: Northrend, Kalimdor and The Eastern Kingdoms. But Illidan stole a vial of water from the well and creates a new one. When Malfurion finds out he throws Illidan into prison.

    Wrong forum.

    And I don't see the point to this thread. Is there something to discuss here?
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Where Thrall and the Horde needs me to be
    Error filled timeline. For example, you state that WoW starts in "year 25", 5 years after TFT.... Might want to watch the Vanilla intro which starts with the sentence "FOUR years have passed..." Now that's 4 years after the Battle at Mount Hyjal.... So yeah.

    Also your "around -1000" skips to "0"... Some of the stuff like the Orcs drinking Mannoroths blood, yeah that's really not that long ago.

    Oh and the Kaldorei weren't drawn to the Well of Eternity, a band of Dark Trolls were. They drank it and POOF Night Elves were all over the place.

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    Starts off wrong by calling Earthen Dwarves. Stopped reading there.

    Alsow what Vizzle said. What are you asking/stating?
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    I've seen similar numbers on wowpedia, but I wouldn't mind sources for the really early stuff, the arrival of the Titans and the creation of the dragon aspects.

    The oldest event that I know is confirmed is the war between the empires of the trolls and the Azj'Aqir kingdom, which was roughly 16,000 years before the present age.
