WoW: Blizzard's "What's Happened So Far" Story Recap for TBC Classic Launch

Tonight is the night: The Dark Portal opens and the heroes of Azeroth may enter Outland to take on the dark demon spawn. In the raid challenges of WoW: Burning Crusade, we can expect to encounter a number of well-known Warcraft characters such as Illidan, Lady Vashj, Kael'thas, Archimonde, and Kil'jaeden.

But why is Outland home to the meeting of some of the most outrageous villains in Warcraft history? What does the Dark Portal have to do with it? And what role do the new races Draenei and Blood Elves play? All these questions and more are answered in Blizzard's "What's Happened So Far" story article. Here is a small excerpt:

"This story began over 10,000 years ago during the War of the Ancestors, when the demonic Burning Legion invaded Azeroth. In exchange for untold power, the promising night elf Illidan Stormrage joined Sargeras, the Destroyer of Worlds, and his Burning Legion. In the darkest hour of the conflict, when it seemed inevitable that the Burning Legion would win and Azeroth's inhabitants were on the brink of slavery, Illidan had a change of heart. He allied himself with his brother Malfurion Stormrage, and together they reversed the magic of the portal Sargeras had used to enter Azeroth. Though Illidan fought against the forces of the Burning Legion, he was tried for his nefarious crimes - for attacking his people and for creating a forbidden Source of Power. He was found guilty and imprisoned under the watchful eye of the Night Elf Guardians led by Maiev Shadowsong."
