Since discovering Ulduar in the Storm Peaks, adventurers have journeyed to the titan city to learn more about its mysterious past. Further exploration has revealed that the magnificent complex is above all a prison, intended to permanently confine the Old God of death, Yogg-Saron. This ancient horror has corrupted its guards, and now it is breaking through the last of its restraints.

the story of Pandaria Emperor Shaohao
here is the story:

The One-Way Journey

The time was ten thousand years ago, maybe more. Back then, the Well of Eternity was still there, and Kalimdor was still the Land of Eternal Starlight. The dynasty of Pandaren of Pandaria had lasted for years and generations that no one could tell.

The empire of Pandaren was built upon their overthrowing of the slavery of the Mogu. But still, it took a lot of efforts to remain peaceful with all the other strong and even aggressive races, which was a hard burden for the emperors of Pandaren.

Pandaren had great faith in Shao Hao, the crown prince, that he would be a leader of great deeds. The crown prince took training at Tian Monastery, which endowed him of the top-notch skills of a monk. Domestically he was benevolent to his people. Diplomatically he allied with other races - Jinyu, Hozen, Grummle and Yaungol - so they could make peace with each other, excluding the Mantid and the Mogu. He also shared a profound bond with the Monkey King, the leader of Hozen.

After crowning, he was referred as Emperor Shao Hao.

According to the old tradition, every new emperor needed to visit the Jinyu elder at Jade Forest who possessed the mystic power of fortune-telling by listening to the words of water. However, what was told to Shao Hao was cruelty and terror beyond his imagination.

Night elves would summon the Burning Legion, who would devour everything of Kalimdor, including Pandaria.

From that moment, the newly crowned Emperor Shao Hao realized his destiny. The throne was no longer an easy task for him. He had to search through his whole life with difficulties to fulfill it. All the glories and fortune of an emperor meant nothing to him. He had to set out immediately on the journey of the salvation of Pandaria.

This journey would be of all pains and no happiness. Should he fail, it would be the end of all.

Monkey King and the Sha

Many roads did Emperor Shao Hao took, many people did he counsel with. In this tedious and fruitless journey which seemed endless, he came to realize that the wisdom of the Celestials was essential to the puzzles. By himself he climbed up Mount Neverest, the highest summit of Azeroth in order to seek the counsel of Yu’lon, the Jade Serpent. Yu’lon did not seem to disappoint him. Shao Hao seemed to find a way to save everything – he was required to free all the burdens upon his shoulders, cleanse his body and soul, so he could be the one with the land.

But the wisdom of the Jade Serpent confused Emperor Shao Hao. What were the burdens that he needed to let go? How could he purify himself? And which was the way to be the one with the land? All these questions puzzled Shao Hao. No zen could help him to discover the secrets within.

Maybe it finally came down to his incapability? How did such an incompetent emperor deserve his jade throne? The frustrations and hopelessness depressed him. All the negative emotions became heavy burdens crawling on his shoulders. He felt like he was about to succumb.

Witnessing his bosom friend in great doubt, the Monkey King tried his best to help. He came to Jade Forest to whittle a strange magic visage out of bamboo in order to please Emperor Shao Hao. But the unexpected happened. The doubt of Shao Hao was absorbed into the mask, his doubt no longer linger. Yet another unexpected thing happened. After they buried the magic visage that had absorbed the doubt of Emperor Shao Hao deep into the earth, a monster that brought forth doubt showed up.

It was called Sha.

Just walking out of shadow, Emperor Shao Hao was confronted with the monster that the Monkey King created unintentionally. What was worse, they soon discovered that Sha could not be eliminated but controlled and sealed. Even for a strong warrior like Shao Hao and with the help of the Monkey King, it took seven hours to eventually have Sha controlled. Sha was sealed within the Jade Forest for real this time.

The idea finally struck Emperor Shao Hao. It came to him that what Yu’lon required him to do was to eliminate the negative emotions such as doubt, so he could one day gain the ability to save Pandaria.

The Seven Burdens

On realizing that, he immediately went to visit the Red Crane, and by the power of the mask that the Monkey King carved for him, he expelled his despair. The Sha of Despair held the dark power of devouring all the hopes. Shao Hao, the Monkey King and the Red Crane fought the Sha of Despair in the pouring rain for four days and five nights. Eventually they sealed it under the land of Krasarang Wilds.

With no hesitation, Emperor Shao Hao and his companions headed to Temple of the Black Ox on the Mantid Steppes beyond the Great Wall. This time they faced the Sha of Fear, who possessed even greater power. The Black Ox joined the three to fight. It took eight days for them to seal the Sha of Fear under Mantid Steppes.

After these battles Emperor fully understood the desperately evil power of Sha, and the countermeasure came to his mind. He gathered the best of all the best Pandaren warriors in Pandaria, and established Shado-Pan. Together, they reached temple of the White Tiger, the last station of the journey. With the help of the White Tiger, Emperor Shao Hao demonstrated the skills to yield and seal Sha, and successfully sealed his Violence, Anger and Hatred under this land.

Thus Emperor Shao Hao finally sealed all his negative emotions. The Pandaren of Shado-Pan had to become the undercover protectors of Pandaria, working on the controlling and sealing of Sha.

After he let go all the seven burdens, Emperor Shao Hao managed to purify all his body and soul. But time was ticking; the War of Ancient was drawing to a close. The foretold day approached. Yet a problem appeared. Should he save Pandaria, Mantid, the archenemy of Pandaren would be saved together. Pandaren and the Mantid warred now and then. Their hatred had lasted for millennia. The decision that Shao Hao was about to make suddenly became heavier.

So the Monkey King spoke.

He counseled with one fact. Every hundred years the Mantid would attack the Great Wall of Pandaren, this cycle was a part of Pandaria. There would be no fish if the water is too clear. Even the conflicts between the two races could not be mitigated; they certainly could not be separated. Pandaren could not be saved without the salvation of the Mantid. The Mantid defined Pandaren as Pandaren defined them. So Emperor Shao Hao understood the deeper meaning of the Jade Serpent.

He knew what he had to do, and the call was made.

The Mists of Pandaria

The Great Sundering began. The first irreversible destruction of Azeroth befell. In the eyes of all his beloved people, Emperor Shao Hao raised his staff, initiating the ritual.

The people of Pandaria looked at their beloved Emperor with full gratitude. While he was chanting, the whole of Pandaria separated from the main land of Kalimdor. It drifted off further to the sea. Silent and solitary.

Quietly, something began to condense in the air. It was the mists! The ocean around Pandaria swelled and shaped into a ring of impenetrable mists, shrouding Pandaria within. From then on, Pandaria was hidden in the Mists; the rest of the world could not bother it any more.

And an incident happened.

When all Pandaren were cheering, celebrating, and their eyes on the emperor, Emperor Shao Hao suddenly struck the ground with a clack.

The emperor who spent his whole life on saving his people fell.

Slowly, the body of the emperor seemed to dissipate. He became a mist, together with all the mists around Pandaria, the land that carried the people he loved.

This is the story of the last emperor of Pandaria. His legend ended there, ten thousand years ago.

He no longer exists by now, yet he is everywhere. He is a part of Pandaria. He is Pandaria. He keeps watching and protecting the people and the land that he always loves.

The days when great troll empires stretched across ancient
The savage trolls of Azeroth are infamous for their cruelty, dark mysticism, and seething hatred for all other races.
......
Kalimdor are long past. Millennia of war and internal strife have stripped these nations of their power, lands, and glory. As Azeroth recovers from the destruction of the Cataclysm, the world's divided troll populations face a bleak future. These dark times have spurred the trolls of the Zandalar, the historically wise and scholarly tribe from which all trolls originated, to take drastic action. They have embarked on a bold crusade to save their race by uniting trolls into a single mighty empire. With the Zandalari's aid, the fallen capitals of the Gurubashi and Amani nations -- Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman -- are already rebuilding, replenishing their forces for a bloody campaign to expand their territories.....

the work spend me more time(about a week) to collect the background and characters of the troll,so many dungons and boss they have,it seem the troll is the most popular enemy in Azeroth,so it is difficult to choose a whole story to rope the troll, but the animal worship is going trough all troll story,so I make the annmal half-god to be main characters in this pic,and the fight to bugs and high-elves history should not be forgoten,and the sunken temple and Zul-farrak is the early classic dungons and then the others is waiting for you to found out~~

Long before the fallen titan, Sargeras, unleashed his demonic Legion on Azeroth, he turned his baleful gaze upon the world of Argus and its highly intelligent inhabitants, the eredar. Believing that this magically gifted race would be a crucial component in his dark quest to undo all of creation, Sargeras contacted the eredar’s three leaders – Kil’jaeden, Archimonde, and Velen – and offered them knowledge and power in exchange for their loyalty

Only Velen abstained, for he had seen a vision. In it, his people were transformed into hideous demons, and they joined the ranks of Sargeras’ Burning Legion: an army of unspeakable evil that would grow vast and decimate life on countless worlds. With the aid of the naaru, benevolent energy beings who had resolved to combat the fallen titan’s nihilistic crusade, Velen gathered other like-minded eredar and narrowly escaped Argus. Forever after, these renegades would call themselves the draenei, or “exiled ones.”

Kil’jaeden, who had loved Velen like a brother, was infuriated by the draenei’s flight from Argus and their ungrateful refusal of Sargeras’ offer. In retaliation, Kil’jaeden led the Legion’s armies on a relentless pursuit of the draenei throughout the cosmos. Eventually, Velen and his beleaguered people eluded their hunters and found sanctuary on a remote world that they would name Draenor, or “Exiles’ Refuge.” Having been instructed by the naaru in the ways of the Light, the draenei developed an extraordinary society on their new home and came to know the shamanistic orc clans native to Draenor.

Yet the draenei’s peaceful existence did not last. Upon discovering the renegades’ home, Kil’jaeden corrupted the noble orcs into a single, bloodthirsty force of destruction: the Horde. Blinded by rage, the orcs wreaked havoc upon the draenei, slaughtering over eighty percent of the race and forcing Velen and other survivors into hiding. Many draenei also mutated into lesser forms known as the Krokul, or “Broken,” after being exposed to the fel energies wielded by orc warlocks. Decades after the Horde’s genocidal campaign, the shaman Ner’zhul opened magical portals throughout Draenor, and the resulting magical stress tore the dying world apart.

In the wake of the calamity, what remained of Draenor – known henceforth as Outland – devolved into a battleground among the Burning Legion and other factions vying for control of the ruined landscape. To escape the mounting chaos, Velen and a number of his followers commandeered the Exodar, a satellite structure of the stunning naaru dimensional fortress named Tempest Keep. Using this craft to search for new allies, the draenei left Outland and later crash-landed upon the world of Azeroth.

Inspired by heroic tales of the Alliance and its victories against the Legion, the draenei sought out and pledged their loyalty to this courageous faction. Not long afterward, Velen and his noble refugees played a key role in urging the Alliance to invade Outland and disrupt the Legion’s nefarious activities. Armed with their unshakable faith in the Light, the draenei ventured to their embattled former home as steadfast members of the Alliance and defeated their ancient demonic rivals.

The return to Outland offered many draenei a chance to reconnect with their brethren who had been left behind. While some of Velen’s race chose to rebuild their society in the shattered land, the majority of draenei remained on Azeroth, vowing to uphold their commitment to the Alliance. Recently, Velen was granted a dire vision concerning a war between the forces of light and darkness that would take place on Azeroth. Thus, the draenei and their sage leader are now bravely preparing to stand against the shadow that they believe is fast approaching.
