    World of Warcraft Books in Reading & Chronological Order ? Full Lore Collection 2018

    This post will teach you The Best & Easiest Way of Learning the WoW Story / Lore, by following this ULTIMATE Collection of World of Warcraft Books, Movie, Videos, Cinematic, Novels, Comics, Manga, updated for 2018 and sorted by reading order / with chronological marked years as timeline for easier Flow & understanding of the FULL Lore of World of Warcraft.
    *Just a Tip: Since here I can't paste the completely finished list with all the pdf / audio download links and best prices and stuff, due to code limitation, I will just paste book list here, but if u want to see the full list with links, color coded types for easier navigation, and all the bells and whistles, click on the link above this text.

    Some "words of efficiency" before we start... I have, primary, made this warcraft book list mostly for myself, and my primary idea in my head was to grab ALL the World of Warcraft books I can for cheap price, deal, and best edition I can get for it. So some of the warcraft books even tho they are listed as separate Novels in the list, for chonological purposes, they might be part of the same collection, or same book, or similar stuff. If you want to save some money while buying the books, then pay attention to * (asterisk) mark.
    Take these Warcraft books for Example:
    ? The Last Guardian - Novel (Amazon)*1
    ? Day of the Dragon ? Novel (Amazon)*1
    ? Lord of the Clans ? Novel (Amazon)*1
    ? Of Blood and Honor ? Novel (Amazon)*1
    All of them listed in separate chronological paragraph, and section of the list, yet they are all part of the WarCraft Archive (WORLD OF WARCRAFT), that you can probably buy for half, quarter or even less of the price, than if you buy them separately (or even if you can find them separately). Which book is combined with what, will explain on the end, after the list is done.

    Either way, The post will be long enough by itself, we have lots of warcraft books and stuff to cover, so I will jump right in, but before I do that, I just want to explain some of the stuffs down in the list, for easier understanding for you.
    ? The numbers like -13,000 or Beginning of the World, is approximate time of the listed warcraft books when the events has taken place.
    ? Then you have Titles of the book/media
    ? After that, all of that will be followed by "-" and the type of the book/media Ex: Novel, Comic, Audio, etc.
    ? And lastly, in (brackets or parenthesis) I will tell you where the book can be found. Ex: YouTube Video, Amazon Buy, Free PDF Download, Free Audio Book, etc.

    Recommendation before start:
    ? I would highly suggest you to read / watch the materials as they are listed.
    ? I would prioritize reading the Novels first, then fill the gaps in between with the rest of the materials (Videos, Cinematics, Comics, etc), if you cannot get everything.
    ? Playing the games (where recommended) would be really fun and interactive way of getting into the Lore / Story, BUT if you cannot play the game (you are not gamer), don't despair, most of the Warcraft books, Novels / Short Stories / etc that are recommended for the same period, in the list below, cover the story. Some more than the game, some less, but u will get into the Lore 100%.
    ? Lastly, I tried my best to sort the warcraft books / media up by reading order, or chronologically as they happen in the Lore, by using many sources (linked below), and I re-checked everything for mistakes. However, I am human and I might have slipped something, even though I highly doubt. Any case, Let me know. :)

    Walla, list is done! :D
    Now we wait for more content to come out, and I will try to keep the list as updated as possible!

    Highly Recommended:
    ? As said on the start, I will use some markings to tell you which of the warcraft books are combined with what, so you don't buy them separately, if there is cheaper and bigger version to buy, unless you specifically want to buy them separate. Well this is what I did: Next to the (Amazon), on some Novels and stuff I use (Amazon)*X, where X is a number.
    Well if you see (Amazon)*3 next to one book, and (Amazon)*3 next to another one too... then just consider they are parts of a bigger book, or that by following my link you can buy them in some sort of collection for cheaper money.
    ? I've made this "collecting" stuff because it helps me keep myself organized for when I started buying them. The Collections are numbered from *0 to *10. Pro Tip: This is what I did: I printed this whole list on a paper. Took another paper (or u can use notepad in PC), and I use "Ctrl+F" in this list, to search on page for everything that contains "*0", and 1 by 1 I was writing all the titles from that collection, while crossing them on my printed paper list that I printed. Then move to "*1" and up to "*10* until i combine all the collection titles together.
    That way I always know that when its , lets say Day of the Dragon / Warcraft Archive (World of Warcraft), turn to be read, I just buy the "Warcraft Archive" collection, and I will have all the rest of the books, so I don't buy duplicates, save money, and stay organized :)
    ? Next "Pro" tip: If / when you buy games, make sure that they are not just boxes and stuff, that there is actually game inside :D I know for some people will be "common sense" or something, but for a guy that might never have played game, and want to try them, since they are very very fun (in my opinion), I wanted to clarify.

    As Always If you have any questions, feedback, concerns, fixes, or whatever, shoot!


    Enjoy & Let me know how u liked the books, if u decide to grab ones. I already started, they are amazing :D

    Glad that you found the article helpful brother
    Also, the legends are like because of reasons when you read them you'll understand. But I've seen lots of other people recommending it that way, so I just followed the feedback + my gut
    Thank you for the lovely feedback tho!
