A lot of these are very good questions, but as with so many tales, telling you too much now would risk spoiling what’s to come. You’ll just have to hang tight and experience the journey ahead firsthand as it happens.
I’d also humbly suggest that if you are curious about the storms that are brewing in Azeroth, you would do well to check out the new World of Warcraft novel, Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War. The book delves into quite a number of prominent lore figures as they try to find their place during these uncertain and turbulent times.
Go go unnecessary product placement.
In my own opinion, it’s hardly “unnecessary product placement” since the novel directly delves into many of the issues brought up in this thread. It’s also really not my place to spoil the content of the novel for those that might be interested in reading it, and you never know who out there might be unaware of it or that it’s been released.
On a more personal note, I purchased the digital pre-order for it many months ago, and on one particularly late night, I received an email notification letting me know it was available to read. While I needed sleep (perhaps desperately), I actually ended up staying up and reading it straight through in one sitting. I truly enjoyed it, and I’ve continued to babble about it on my CM Twitter account
for weeks now because I think it’s a fantastic lead-in to the upcoming pre-launch events and Mists of Pandaria. I don’t get a dime for suggesting that others might enjoy it. Just like when you get out from a great movie and want to tell your friends they should go see it because you just know they’ll really dig it, that’s the same way I feel about this book.

Hopefully you’ll be pleased with some of the upcoming content we have shaping-up. The pre-launch events are definitely story-driven.
