Extended Vanilla

Welcome to the first ever fully-interactive story expansion for Vanilla WoW. This expansion will take a different path from Burning Crusade, emphasizing the familiar Azeroth of Vanilla WoW over the cosmic battle with the Legion. It's heavily based on the background lore from Warcraft 3 and Vanilla WoW, and seeks to follow some of the story threads from those games without breaking established lore.

In addition to new dungeons, raids, and zones, the expansion will also feature two new races. A group of greedy Goblins will split off from the Venture Company to join their fellow outcasts in the Horde, and High Elf refugees from the fall of Quel'Thalas will lend their magical talents to the Alliance.

Prepare yourself for an all-new, never-told chapter in the story of World of Warcraft: a three-part expansion storyline that will lead you on adventures never had and to depths never visited.

Coming storm

The Thalassian Elves have suffered much since the loss of Quel'thalas, a large part of their people have left for Outland, disappearing with only a few scattered sightings around the world since then.Another group have remained with the Alliance, either residing in old lodges from the Second war or living in Human settlements, however recently the Elves have been rallied by something, there are rumors of a new settlement where the Quel'dorei can once more build their people. Rumors say it will be like a miniature Eversong Forest, however such a settlement requires a lot of work, and it is said that the elves will be requiring assistance soon.

Meanwhile in Kalimdor a strange conundrum has appeared, in the last few months Forest Trolls have been seen in small groups, searching for something or someone, the Trolls have remained elusive, avoiding almost all contact. A sneaky Darkspear scout managed to listen in on an internal conversation, she had to keep her distance but she heard whispers about Trol'kalar and a Troll settlement within Kalimdor. The Horde is not on good terms with Forest Trolls, except for the Revantusk Tribe, it's said that they have been contacted.

Elsewhere in the Blasted Lands, Sin'dorei and Naga have been seen working together, searching for something while engaging the scattered demon groups. Prepare to face the coming storm or be swept away!


Shrewd, greedy, and ruthless, goblins have a long-standing reputation for being neutral in the rest of the world, despite the Steamwheedle Cartel allying with the Old Horde during the Second War. Heroes of goblin society are not bastions of honor or integrity. Instead, goblins tend to admire the ruthless acquisition of profit, by any means necessary. Goblins are gifted engineers and accomplished seafarers, but are best known for their unabashed avarice.

High Elves

Long ago the exiled high elves founded Quel'Thalas, where they created a magical fount called the Sunwell. Though they were strengthened by its powers, they also grew increasingly dependent on them. Ages later the undead Scourge destroyed the Sunwell and most of the high elf population. Now these scattered refugees are seeking to find a new place in the world as they search for a cure to their painful addiction.
