If they ever will, my money is on a retcon (=Azeroth only ever had one moon) if they can be bothered at all. Of course knowing Blizzard they may pull off that "we had this grand plan all the time" act at some point...

The GMs don't know, and they're constrained in what they get to make up (since their pronouncements are effectively official), at least according to an acquaintance of mine who was (and maybe still is) one of the GMs.

If Draenor was the Blue Child, then it logically follows that the White Lady (and therefore Elune) is Argus.

Ooh, I like that idea! If you have time, that might be worth fleshing out in a longer post :-)

Welcome to The Piazza Andrew.

I don't quite follow your logic there. :?

Please tell me more.

I believe the implication is that since the ship and gate travel don't go as far in this view (Draenor being seen (from Azeroth) as a "moon"), then Argus (homeworld of the Draenei and the Eredar) would also need to be nearby since the ships cannot travel as far.

I should add that the Draenei build mostly white and crystalline structures (look at Exodar, for instance), which would potentially tie in with Elune being the "White" Lady.

Of course, that puts the Burning Legion closer than ever, but it might also limit the scope of the Legion's activities to, say, one star system. (In this case, Xoroth, home of the felsteeds, might be either an outer, fiery planet or this system's Mercury...)

However, I, too, would appreciate some expansion of the idea.

Maybe Blizzard's setting will turn into Worlds of Warcraft. :)
