well, there's more to it than just that...

They discovered Pandaria, and the territory war that ensued woke up ancient demons that feed off negative emotion or some ****...

****, i don't even know... i just play because I've got friends who live cross country and playing is the only way i get to hang out with them. I don't actually know what's going on except there's a big black and white thing that keeps yelling at me while i'm questing... it gets annoying.

Well... actually this is a big part of the Old God mythos. Yeah, C'Thun, Yogg'Saron and that lot. They are beings of chaos as opposed to the Titans who are beings of order. They are insanely powerful and can't be killed (Yeah, Yoggy and C'Thun are supposedly still alive and kickin', just much weaker.) and were imprisoned inside of Azeroth.

There's said to be 6 of them in a hexagon placed around the world. One in southern Kalimdor (C'Thun)
one in northern Kalimdor (N'Zoth, the guy behind the Emerald Nightmare)
Northrend (Yogg'Saron)
Northern EK (There's some lore about red crystals that absorb blood similar to how Saronite is Yogg'Saron's blood gone all coagulated)
Lower EK (Below Karazan, the place where everyone went ******* mental.
and Pandaria (With the Sha going all mad with this war that's popped up.)

So there you go. That's what the Sha supposedly are. There's also evidence that the Mantid serve the old gods... like the Silithids and the Nerubians... it's always the ******* bugs...

I do enjoy Warcraft Lore. Never understood the old god ****, now I do somewhat better.

I should play MoP eventually.

Well, the Old Gods are actually a reference to H.P. Lovecraft. Yeah, the Cuthulu guy. In fact, so is a lot of Warcraft.

Warcraft = Lovecraft
Achievement: Make Love not Warcraft (Though that may be a coincidence)
C'Thun = Cuthulu
Yogg'Saron = Yog'Sothoth
Azeroth = Azathoth (The all-corrupting mass of chaos and hatred... which has lead to a lot of interesting speculation as to exactly why Azeroth has so many Old Gods and so many Titan creations...) In fact, all evil in WoW can be tied back to the Old Gods.

trolls anciently fought the Aqir (The bug race that split into Silithids, Mantids and Nerubians) in ancient times. Then some Dark trolls were warped by unknown magic into the first Highborn. (Presumed to have been caused by the old god N'Zoth)

Then Highborn started summoning daemons to the world which killed a lot of it's ancient guardians and split them apart into the High Elves (Who would later discover an island in northern EK where people started going nuts), Naga (Yet again N'Zoth displays an ability for changing things, a tad more drastically this time though, perhaps because he had changed them into the form that they were already in a long time ago) and the Night Elves.

Meanwhile Yogg'Saron started corrupting the titan machines with the curse of flesh, turning those Iron Vrykul into actual Vrykul and the same with the Gnomes and Dwarves. Then those Vrykul began giving birth to far smaller young who were considered abominations, later growing up to be the first humans.

And the humans and high elves ended up ******* with the creatures 'not' created by the old gods like the trolls; and the Tauren were getting slaughtered by the Centaur...

The only ones who were still living in peace and NOT fighting the hordes of Old God monsters were the Pandaren and even then they still have to fight the Mantid.

So yeah, Old Gods are dicks that feed off the chaos and pain that the wars they create cause to get stronger and make bigger wars.

Or so we speculate.

Well... I do, but that's mainly because of the spare time I used to have. No, the majority of this information is not known in the game. It is outside speculation based upon common factors that appear in many places. E.G. **** got real freaky wherever the old gods were supposedly buried.

I don't like conspiracies unless they're about fiction, in which case they tend to be correct.

Also, a great place to find out more about the lore is the RP servers and the RP forums. A lot of people there know **** you would never see on PvE and PvP servers... but it's admittedly more fun when they get into an argument. Not gonna lie, there's some hilarious rage-threads pop up there.

An ancient evil has awakened that has destroyed all of Azeroth.
Better beat him with 24 other pugs using the LFR tool.
