Timeline Question

Hi there!

I have a quick (sorta but not really) time line question. I've looked stuff up on Wowpedia (as well as read some of the novels. But I read them in totally opposite order, so it wasnt much help), but I cant seem to get a good handle on the time line of Azeroth (and Outlands, I suppose). How long ago was it that the Orcs first came through the portal? And when that happened, did they immediately attack all the humans or was there a break? And after that, did they attack again (not counting the current war)? How long were they in prison camps?

I recently created an Orc to start RPing (I generally just do Alliance, so Im not great with Horde stuff), and was wondering how old she would be if she was there when they first drank the demon blood and/or came through the portal?

the first war happened when orcs came through the portal the second time and wipe out the kingdom of azeroth(stormwind)

that happened in year 0,roughly 30 years ago

and then they headed north through khaz modan toward lordaeron where the second war began which was year 6

The short of it is that you'd be around in your late forties or in your fifties by now.
