    LORE - Warcraft Lore in a Minute!

    Sargeras, a Titan entrusted with protecting the universe, spent countless millennia battling demons from the Twisting Nether. As eons passed, Sargeras became corrupted by the very demons he destroyed. Having refused the Titans' vision of an ordered universe, Sargeras left their ranks and resolved to undo all their work. He released the demons he imprisoned and recruited Kil'Jaeden the Deceiver to raise an army, and Archimonde the Defiler to lead his invasion. And with that, he set upon a Burning Crusade throughout the universe.

    Sargeras grew attracted to the Well of Eternity, the heart of Azeroth's magical and natural power, thus setting in motion the plans for his next invasion. Queen Azshara of the elven people fell victim to Sargeras' undeniable power and agreed to summon him and his army into the world through the Well of Eternity. Malfurion Stormrage and his allies, with no other choice, destroyed the Well of Eternity, causing the Great Sundering that split Kalimdor into 4. Still, Sargeras would not be denied.

    Aegwynn, a Guardian appointed to combat the Burning Legion, is drawn to a demonic presence in Northrend. There she encounters and defeats the avatar of Sargeras and casts his body to the depths of the ocean. Unbeknownst to her, Sargeras transferred his spirit into her body where he would lie dormant for many years.

    Aegwynn later gave birth to a son who she would name Medivh. Both her power and the sinister spirit of Sargeras were passed down, during which Sargeras made his final plans for his second invasion. Medivh's terrible powers begin take hold of his body and mind, and he would begin constructing the Dark Portal. Meanwhile, Kil'Jaeden had successfully enslaved and empowered the Orcish clans of Draenor, setting the stage for a war that would change Azeroth forever.

    Have fun!
