Origins of the Races (Part 2/3)


 Worgen
  • Worgen were initially Night Elves transformed after tampering with primal magic.  First banished by Malfurion, then let loose by Dalaran Magi.  Recently, the Worgen Curse spread into Gilneas, transforming Humans into Worgen.  A partial cure allowed them to retain their sanity.
Draenei
  • Draenei, or Eredar, come from the world Argus.  When Sargeras came to corrupt them, those who followed the Prophet Velen, and the Naaru, refused to join his ranks.  They used a giant diamond for interdimensional travel, ending up in The Outlands.
 Goblins
  • The exact origin of the Goblins is unknown; however we do know they are an ancient race.  Originally dumber than trolls, they were forced to mine Kaja’mite.  However, Goblins soon realized it had a power unapparent to Trolls, and after experimenting with it, the mineral caused the Goblins to greatly increase in intelligence.
Blood Elves
  • After the Well of Eternity collapsed, the Highborne were banished by the Night Elves.  They settled on Quel’Thalas, took on a diurnal cycle, and called themselves High Elves.  After Arthas ravaged through Quel’Thalas, the survivors renamed themselves Blood Elves in remembrance.

Thanks for reading.  The final addition is coming Thursday!
