The initial chapter of the series is titled "World of Warcraft: The War Within," where you will encounter the Nerubians and journey to the Heart of Azeroth.
- Following that, the second part of the saga is called "World of Warcraft: Midnight." In this chapter, you will revisit the old world and the legendary lands of Quel'thalas, which have been invaded by void forces, threatening to plunge Azeroth into darkness. Your mission is to banish this shadowy threat for good.
- The final segment of the saga is known as "World of Warcraft: The Last Titan." Here, your adventure takes you back to Northrend, specifically to Ulduar, where you will witness the titans' return to Azeroth and unravel a sprawling conspiracy that spans the world's history. This revelation challenges everything you thought you knew about the world and is referred to as Silithus.
- In the "War Within" chapter, you will encounter Xal'atath, who leads a Nerubian civilization. The new zones to explore include Azj-Kahet, Isle of Dorn, and The Ringing Deeps, while the exciting new features comprise "Delves" and "Warbands." An account-wide reputation system is being introduced, allowing you to consider alternate characters as part of your in-game family.
