Okay, guys - it's official. Modern Blizzard writers are retconning the Chronicles. My gosh, what a mess curent WoW lore is. Retcons of retcons that retconned previous retcons.The good thing is that Burning Crusade is still kicking and I enjoy it. True, bad retcons began here (eredar and draenei controversy), but at least I still care about the old story.

I still think that this is whar was given to the broker and not necesaroly the true, so there is sadly still place for more retcons
I'm of the opinion that the 7th cosmic force is Time. We know time magic exists, but it does not appear anywhere on the cosmology chart. The whispers from the statue in 9.1 makes a lot of references to time, history, etc.
theyre retconning the living !@#$ out of it cause they cant just end the game by letting us go against the prime evil of that universe, the void gods.removed
WoW players don't even know what retcon means. Any further divulging of information is a retcon in their books. We can't learn anything new because they're already screaming retcons. *!@#. I'm so tired of hearing players complain. Why are you still here? Leave already and let the rest of us have a crumb of enjoyment.
So the primus stated that zovaal is after the sepulcher. It seems fair to assume that the final encounter against him will take place there, trying to prevent him for reorigining the universe, after him taking all what he needs to reach it. Bad news for the arbiter
Other then the fact already mentioned above that that Chronicles are written from the point of view of the titans, did it even occur to anyone that said Broker might just be ..wrong?Just because some NPC writes a book, does not mean its necessarily 100% accurate. He is just trying to understand his own world. Just look at how many different view points on our real world exist, and all the controversy around that. Why does a NPC written book have to be assumed to be 100% correct and taken as strict true fact?Different points of view might see the same reality and interpret it very differently. Two people can see the same thing, research the same history, and come up with totally opposing conclusions.TLDR:Take it for what it is, a book written by a NPC Historian. Its his personal take on the world, not the absolute truth. His own introduction even says that he is just at the beginning of understanding.
Why would the 7th Force be the First Ones if the First Ones are mentioned multiple times and the 7th Force is unknown as @#$%? If anything, the First Ones seem to be the 6-7 forces that clashed with eachother, but they went together one day, took a piece of themselves (AKA Light, Shadow, Order, Disorder, Life, and Death), and used those pieces to forge their design, their chart. The 7th force is apparently out of the Design, and is likely the indirect cause of all the other Forces wanting Reality. Seems more like the 7th Force could be an implication of an Evil First One. Just my assumption, however.And do we know what comes before the First Ones?
Yey! Thanks for sharing this DiscordianKitty! I wish you would have included my questions and answers too though.After all, we both helped to explain the text ^^On a personal note, (as I said on tweets) however plausible I still think Portergauge's (and now this article's) reasoning is quite a far reach. Because, all the 4 volume of text does not contain these, it just tells about how hard it was to reach that final knowledge and what he went through. Ends right before revealing all that.Also, "fractal" implies the formation of cosmic forces, their complicated interactions and their final states in the cosmic chart. At the end, the language of the First Ones also implies to look "fractal" in that same complicated sense.So, there is nothing like being a "Seventh" cosmic force, more like they are the "First", before all 6, as creators, not one of them. Also, there is no implication that they have planned the cosmic conflict between the Light and Void. It may be true, but it's not in these texts.PS: No, this is not a "retcon" at all, it's a tease of an upcoming explanation of cosmic forces of Chronicles in a wider perspective. Probably may also be hinting the upcoming book Grimoire of the Shadowlands and Beyond by Sean Copeland and Steve Danuser. After all, we know it's written from the Broker perspective.
Maybe the First Ones are the top of the top, but it is possible they could write an all powerful God in WoW...Just saying, an Evil First One doing @#$% like that AKA trying to take the powers of that 1 top God in WoW or maybe trying to destroy the other First Ones would be a good step up from the Void Lords.
Has anyone ever thought, maybe we are never going to find out the 100% true meaning/origins of the WoW universe? Much like IRL there is going to be many different theories/beliefs. Maybe the Devs want to further develop some of these theories so the player base can choose which to believe as well.
