- The hope for future generations has always resided in mortal hands. And now that my task is done, I will take my place...amongst the legends of the past.-Medivh
Legends are the most famous heroes and villains from all eras of Azeroth's history.
The world of Azeroth is rife with adventure. Even the smallest villages have their stories of monsters assailed, treasures discovered and battles won. Yet only a few adventurers in each generation rise to face the next level of challenge, to become true heroes. Of those heroes, fewer still survive their trials to become legends that will be remembered for all time.
Decades, centuries, even millennia later, their names are still known: Malfurion Stormrage, Tyrande Whisperwind, Orgrim Doomhammer, Korialstrasz, Uther Lightbringer and the other characters are beings of great renown and greater ability, legends.
