Filed under: Analysis / Opinion, Lore, Know your LoreThe World of Warcraft is an

expansive universe. You"re playing the game, you"re fighting the bosses, you know the how --

but do you know the why? Each week, Matthew Rossi and Anne Stickney make sure you Know Your

Lore by covering the history of the story behind World of Warcraft.For the past several

weeks we"ve discussed magic in the World of Warcraft setting. We"ve talked about where it

comes from and the various ways it manifests in the universe. We"ve talked about druidic,

shamanistic, fel, arcane, shadow and the magic of the Holy Light. We"ve even talked about

subsets of arcane such as necromancy. This week, things veer off into the speculative.We"ve

seen that there are different ways to achieve the same thing. Kel"Thuzad, a magus of

Dalaran, learned necromancy from the Lich King. The Lich King gained his necromantic [url= http://www.gw2goldshop.com] gw2 gold[/url]

from Kil"jaeden, an eredar and second in command of the Burning Legion, which makes heavy

use of fel magics, and the Lich King himself was originally Ner"zhul, a former shaman.

Meanwhile, it was Ner"zhul"s former studen Gul"dan who took demonic secrets from Kil"jaeden

and developed Horde necromancy and invented the first death knights. Meanwhile, the mage

Naberius developed his own form of the ritual of undeath that created liches with no help

from any of them.Likewise, we"ve seen that the naaru can tap into powers of the Light and

also of shadow, just as priests can. And yet warlocks tap a similar shadowy power despite

having no connection at all to the Light that fuels the naaru life cycle. Indeed, warlocks

tap arcane magic to fuel their shadowy arms, even as priests tap the Light and its opposite.

What does all of this mean? Ironically enough, a broken who became the first shaman of the

draenei may well have stumbled upon the answer.Everything that is, is alive. And magic?

Magic is.
