Throughout all of World of Warcraft it seems that all the terrible things in history has been either one of two celestial forces: the army of demons, The Burning Legion, or the corrupting ancient deities, The Old Gods. Every villain that we have came across can be traced back to at least one of these two terrors.
The Old Gods have been responsible for:
The war of the Shifting Sands
While the Burning Legion had their hand in:
Illidan’s rise and fall
The Orc’s corruption and their actions in the First War
The creation of The Lich King
But as I thought about all the ills these two forces inflicted on to Azeroth, I asked the question: “How would these forces react if they had to meet?”
In the War of the Ancient trilogy, it was confirmed that the Old God’s used the Night Elves and the Burning Legion to destroy the world, granting them their freedom from their prison within the planet’s core. It was implied that the Burning Legion was just clueless pawns in master plan, just like how the creation of Deathwing and the manipulation of the other Aspects was just another step to their victory.
But the the Burning Legion’s leader is Sargeras, previously one of the Titans that has been fighting the Old Gods since before Azeroth’s creation. So he must know something about the Old God’s existences and how they acted.
And through pieces of lore, it has been discovered that both The Burning Legion and the Old Gods have expanded their reach to beyond the stars, so it’s not that hard to imagine that somewhere in time and space they have met on some distant planet.
Imagine, the Burning Legion and the Old Gods fighting in an endless war, with the demon’s massive army, countless solders housed in the Twisting Nether, verses the constantly scheming Deities equipped with their powerful corrupting forces. Constantly fighting for the sole purpose to destroy each other.
Sadly, I do not think that Blizzard will ever make a story line where the two evils would meet, let alone finding a way for the players to get involved with the conflict. No, Blizzard would only make that a ‘reality’ if the game developers are scrapping the barrel for future content. For now the Idea of Satan and Cthulhu fighting on a distant planet is only for imaginative players and bloggers.
