In an effort to clear up all of the story chaos that has occurred in World of Warcraft over the past few years, Blizzard has launched a new animated short film series. In the "Lore in Short" videos, the developers summarize the most important parts of WoW's history in a short and easy-to-understand format. This allows veterans and new players alike to dive into Warcraft lore instantly and learn about a specific faction like the Burning Legion. The short summaries in video format save you a lot of time and you don't have to consult external sources like books and co. to learn about the WoW story.

New short film from Blizzard revolves around the Dark Portal

In the second short film, the developers explain the origin story of the Dark Portal. The portal is both a curse and a blessing for Azeroth. Long ago, the fallen guardian Medivh opened a portal between Azeroth and Draenor in a night and fog action. The First War claimed countless lives among the orcs who fled their ruined world, as well as the humans, dwarves, and elves. On the other hand, the orcs and the Horde were given a chance at a fresh start in Azeroth. Find out how and why the orcs came to Azeroth and how the Alliance once sealed the Dark Portal in the video below.
