Did a copy and paste from the Outland article. At some point some variety may be required. However, there are a few issues I'd like to voice, and it seems best to do it on the same page.
Firstly is the issue of Draenor's sun. I've read the prologue of Tides of Darkness (seen here and one thing that caught my eye was the issue of Draenor's sun, how prior to the orcs' corruption it was yellow and gave off a great deal of heat, while at the time of the Second War, it appears to have become cold and red, though not a red giant.
Granted the red sun could simply be due to a sunset, but that doesn't seem to be the case. And although fel magic turned Draenor into a wasteland, I doubt that it could affect its star and it couldn't have simply aged so rapidly either. Perhaps in the Warcraft universe, a planet's sun is linked to the well being of the planet itself, such as whatever link Elune may have to Azeroth itself. There's been nothing to support this however, but the star thing presents such a thought.
Or I'm over-analyzing ;)
The second issue is the matter of categories. Shouldn't Draenor be classified as a world too, in that at the time it existed, it matched the definition perfectly? As the wiki is kept up to date, Outland is essentially the world of Draenor, though doesn't match the category if one considers what a planet is. The definition will vary, but Outland is essentially a floating rock with no spherical properties that doesn't even seem to orbit its star anymore. Anyway, just a thought. The stub category will have to be removed sometime anyway.--Hawki (talk) 08:38, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
- Yes its a world, add any related categories as needed. Also try leave draenor history as brief as possible on the Outland page. Also this page should be the primarily source of information on Draenor before its destruction. Also minor correction Outland is a bunch of floating rocks, you only get to visit the main continent in WoW however.Baggins (talk) 08:40, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Draenor is referred to as the "red world". Azeroth, meanwhile, is a very Earth-like planet. Does anyone else think that the relationship between Azeroth and Draenor is comparable to that between Earth and Mars? (Intentionally, not accidental.) Bill (talk - contr - web) 02:47, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
- I guess not, these two planets are far away from each other, possibly in each their galaxy, while Earth and Mars are pretty close. On other points, however, I somewhat agree. --Meltheon 14:33, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
- Not so far from each other, Azeroth can be seen from the Black Temple courtyard.
