The Warcraft franchise needs its own “Knights of the Old Republic”

wow1 - The Warcraft franchise needs its own "Knights of the Old Republic"

I propose a prequel series for the Warcraft franchise. BfA made it obvious that current lore is too much of a mess these days and expanding any further would just make things worse. So why not go back in time and play events that have already transpired?

I personally think they should use the Troll Wars that transpired 2800 years before the events Warcraft 1 since that's one of the defining moments for both Trolls and Humans and there's a lot of fertile ground there. It would take a few retcons but since the event was always so vaguely explained it shouldn't harm anything.

Whether it'd be an MMO or a Single-Player experience would be up to the devs but I think a single player game would be best for this kind of thing.

The general idea would that you'd choose to play either the Amani Trolls or the Humans.

The best part would be being able to meet characters and see locations as they once were in the past like in Caverns of Time and Warlords of Draenor.

  • Jintha'Alor when it was a new city.

  • Stromgarde when it was a new city

  • Human culture when they were still mostly tribal

  • High Elf culture before the Scourge

  • Forest Troll culture when they were still a superpower.

  • Eastweald before the Humans and the Scourge.

  • Re-imagined Zul'Aman

  • Quel'thalas and Silvermoon Pre-Scourge Invasion

  • Meet lore characters who died before the events of WoW like: King Thoradin, General Lordain, Meryl Winterstorm, Ignaeus Trollbane, Anasterian Sunstrider, Thalorien Dawnseeker and Jintha.

  • Meet High Elf characters we know today as they were in the past like: Lor'themar Theron, Kael'thas Sunstrider, Alleria Windrunner, Lady Liadrin and Lorash Sunbeam.

  • See major lore events made into cinematics like King Thoradin using Strom'kar to kill Zakajz the Corruptor

  • Introduce new characters and then add references to their existence in WoW

This was just an idea I had rattling around in my head and I wanted to know if anyone else thinks this would be cool.

EDIT: I also think that the magic firestorm the Human mages created to annihilate the Amani army and end the war could add the moral grayness that the franchise has been being starved of over the past decade. It’s a celebrated moment in Human history as it marks the beginning of a new era of prosperity for Humanity but for the Forest Trolls it must have been their Burning of Teldrassil. Luring the Alliance into a trap in Lordaeron was “dishonorable” according to Saurfang and the firestorm was the same strategy but on a immensely larger scale.

But then one could argue that the Humans wouldn’t have been able to beat the Amani any other way and that it was the Trolls who were the aggressors. Then troll sympathizers could argue back that the Amani only became aggressive because the High Elves were forcing them out of their home. Then elf sympathizers could argue that the Quel’dorei needed a home where the Leylines were or they would starve for magic. This circle of finger pointing could go on forever which is the truest essence of moral grayness to me.
