Lore in Short: The Dark Portal

Watch a quick refresher on the history of the Dark Portal’s origins in 90 seconds.

A colossal gateway between worlds, the Dark Portal has wrought destruction on Azeroth and Draenor alike. In World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, venture through this passage to the remnants of Draenor, now known as Outland, in an attempt to quell Illidan and the Burning Legion.

    THIS IS THE KIND OF LORE YOU NEEDED TO USE FOR YOUR WARCRAFT MOVIE not some random orcs coming from nowhere. You should have started with the Titans and Sargeras and the creation of the universe to introduce viewers to the World of Warcraft !

    Gul’dan died on Azeroth so his skull would’t be on Draenor but on Azeroth so they could’t have gotten it since that would mean that Ner’zhul went to Azeroth without The Dark Portal which we know is wrong since he would have mentioned that in Warcraft 3 if he did but he didn’t so he could’t have died before the first war since the first war was when The Dark Portal was opened for the first time

    It's legion khadgar ? From after the aging effect from medivh faded ? With that same armour... It's a cool look for the character but in the visions he had in last gaurdian it was described how he had white hair beard and so forth, the khadgar we see in shatrah atm.

    @Kyle Draconicus It might be another retcon, where he obtained it before the second war errupted. Or right after he and Lothar slain Medivih. That would erase Medan to nothing.

    Possible that's just an error cause the artist used the actual skin of Khadgar. All is possible. But in the official lore, Khadgar have the staff of Medivh in Warlord of Draenor (source: wowpedia)
