Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

South Park may have spoofed, "Make love, not Warcraft," but millions of fans can't resist the allure of a video game that continues to spin its multiplayer magic. Apparently, DK continues to unfurl its own brand of magic; in this case, an Ultimate Visual Guide to The World of Warcraft. This fully authorized, fully illustrated hardcover spotlights the game's major characters, key locations, and history. A master key to a widely favored fantasy realm.

From the Publisher

"There's tons of lore for the story enthusiasts, including — wait for it — an official timeline of events, something many of us have been clamoring for, for quite a while now. If you're a big WoW geek (like most of the staff here at WoW Insider)it wouldn't be surprising for this book to earn a place of pride on your bookshelves." – Joystiq.com

    Excellent Book

    As a fan of the lore of Warcraft since the first game in 1994, I found this visual guide to be an excellent source of information. From the opening pages explaining the timeline to the in-depth character portraits, this guide goes over just about every aspect of lore of the game. It doesn't just explain the story for World of Warcraft but covers the story of Warcrafts 1-3 in depth as well. A must-read for any fan of the series, especially those who only started playing WoW and never experienced the great RTS games that preceded it.
