  1. Did you pick your class based on lore

  2. I'd love to playthrough WC3 again, but now we may as well wait for them to release the remastered version

  3. HEY Nobbel who was Jesse Morales? He has a tomb in Southshore

  4. I played classic, but man, I never knew the lore behind the dungeons and I knew very little about Alliance lore. Can't wait to revisit it all again, and try out raiding this time!

  5. Thanks for the reminder. I've played Warcraft since Orcs & Humans. I love the game, loved the lore. I am seriously considering WoW Classic.

  6. thanks for the video! But as a non-native-speaker, i find it sometimes hard to understand you. coud you try to pronounce more precicely?

  7. Terug in de tijd ! Ik kan haast niet wachten.

  8. Appreciate the effort.. but I can't understand half of what your saying.

  9. Best intro for a video game. Ever.

  10. Now this is story telling ❤️

  11. goddamn, you sound like Dracula

  12. Only person I know to pronounce the Horde "The Hordt" and you also call Thrall "Throwe"

  13. Love your videos, but your pronouciation of some character's names are waaay off. You put so much effort and care so much about the details, so why not make sure to pronounce the names properly?

  14. Helloo everyonnnnnnnnnnnnne

  15. Hate this guys voice... cant listen

  16. Oh man, I just can't wait for Classic to come out, I'm so hyped

  17. FARKEN ADDS!!!<br />How do I UPDATE my AD Blocker to stop adds on Youtube?

  18. There’s just something about your voice that makes me unable to focus on what you’re actually saying. I don’t know if it’s an accent or you just talk funny.

  19. You talk too quickly and your accent is messing up things and you come of as try hard you are not smoothly telling the story.

  20. Appreciate the effort put in this video but please man, you need to speak slower. I am having a difficult time understanding you. There's a lot of bizarre names and places in warcraft so you need to slow down your delivery.

  21. What

  22. Playing a mage for soon to be classic release. My main goal is to get atiesh. Oh boy the grinds coming boys.

  23. I’m sorry but I’ve gotta say. With all due respect your tonality is all over the place when your reading and telling stories. This is very distracting and makes it hard to focus.<br />If your not sure what I mean then ask any English major to break it down for you.

  24. getting killed by Murlocs, what a noob...yikes

  25. Please do this story by expansion for every expansion to BFA. ??????

  26. My best friend really likes WoW so I’m trying to understand it so I can talk about it to her ?

  27. If only you would speak like a decent human being so people could actually understand what you are saying,...

  28. every time i watch your lore videos i'm getting pissed about the movie again...

  29. This was brilliant.

  30. Just a few more hours!!!!!

  31. I love the way this guy builds a sentence. Every Sentence, begins low, then staRTS TO GROW, UNTIL HE'S BUILT UP AND READY TO BLOW!!!!!.

  32. cant understand what youre saying with the strong accent and fast talking

  33. "Cufoon"

  34. wtf is with your accent.. god i cannot listen to you talk anymore you sound like a stuttering we little leprechaun

  35. It has been 2 years since I watched one of your videos. I love you man

  36. Are these by any chance available in text form?

  37. Why does everyone who makes wow videos have the craziest accents.

  38. the Dutch accent is thick in this one...

  39. Sen'jin be like, "I'm 4 mana"

  40. please more classic lore!!

  41. I love your content nobbel, as always accurate and well written, but I think I need to correct you here:<br />on <a href="">9:20</a>, I'm not certain if you are implying that the summoning of archimonde made arthas lose power, but that was not what happened. What happened was that illidan was trying to kill the LK, with a spell that would torn Northrend apart, while on process of the ritual, his brother sensed this rupture of the earth and stopped him in time. But this spell was not a complete failure, it breached the LK's frozen throne a bit, enough to make him bleed, thus making Arthas lose his power bit by bit and losing control over his minions, sylvanas included.

  42. Awesome video, love the outline of the timeline. But as a native english speaker I found it a bit difficult to follow without subtitles.<br /><br /><br />For example, at <a href="">14:20</a> you make a transition and I get completely lost

  43. Where are you from?<br />Just wondering where to travel to next and look for a wife bc this accent is amazing.

  44. Why do you say Frall... It's Thrall with a T

  45. Fucking WoW lore so deep my mind hurts

  46. fun fact in silverpine forest on retail you can do the quest sylvanas explains how she hates artha's so much she will do anything to kill him how he took her life from her sister

  47. Ten fousand years ago. Some fing. lololol

  48. The cadence of this guys voice makes his videos unwatchable unfortunately as they are quite well made

  49. "the drums of war thunder once again" that HAS to be lady Tsunade from naruto
