Warcraft Timeline Compilation
#1
Now then, this isn't the official timeline, but that misses out quite a few things, and, being Blizzard it's predictably wrong.

But anyway; this timeline has always helped me keep track of things, so I thought I'd post it in our Shiny new Lore section!

What I suggest you do, is read down here to find the time you're looking for, and then follow the link to the Wowwiki page and type in the event you need.
http://www.wowpedia.org

And yes! I will be adding events as they happen here.

A few events were added on the bottom, to comply with server lore.
If there's anything wrong, or I'm not on track, feel free to PM me, so we can have this up-to-our date.

EDIT
Added notes: year 25, The Scourge came about, and 26, Forsaken broke free.

This is great stuff and will work well with my compilations of all the ingame lorebooks in their respective chapters, there will soon be no need to go to wowwiki =)

Hey, with the Undercity lost and retaken, was that between Sylvannas and the Dreadlords? Or is that the Putros and Varimathas?

(Never played any of the Warcrafts =| ) And if no to the first question, when did Sylvannas and the Dreadlords' forsaken fight? For this server lore, anyway. I'm planning a character idea for an undead.

That was when they originally broke from the Scourge, Sylvanas and the Dreadlords fought, eventually forming one Undead army.

The fight in our server lore is when Varimthiras broke away again and overtook Undercity, Sylvanas and her lads fought for it back, and won.
I hope that's what you needed to know.

It sort of was.

But I needed to know, if a Forsaken who survived was alive today, would he have turned mindless by now?

Thanks.

Nope, all the Forsaken that fought in that war ARE the forsaken of today.
No (t many) Forsaken have been released from the Lich King's grasp since then.

I know that! Let me try put it another way...

Could I, right now, create a character who fought on the Dreadlord's side? As in, was it over 200 years ago so I can't make the character?

You CAN have fought on the Dreadlord's side, the survivors of all the armies merged into Sylvanas' army.

And there wouldn't have been any form of undead besides Gul'dan's Death Knights more than about 8 years ago I think.

Not quite what I mean! XD

Alright, just answer this question:

How long ago was the battle between Sylvannas and the Dreadlords? 50 years? 20 years? 100?

I need to know so I can have an accurate age for my upcoming undead character!

They were formed at the end of the Third war, so anywhere between the years 28 and 29 would be about right. So Forsaken themselves are 5 years old, though the plague that created the Undead was in the beginning of the Third war, the Lordaeron one anyway.

I've added some info about the Plague, both in the timeline, and a quick reference at the top.

Will stuff be updated at Year 33? Like major GM-run events and such?

Well, only if the events are something that would affect all of Azeroth in some way.

If 30 Draenei made a human pyramid for some odd reason, that kind of thing wouldn't be put in there. More significant events.
