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.
