So I’m gonna start with posting a piece of warcraft lore on a daily basis. Starting with the creators (How can it not be!?) Picture of Sargeras, The destroyer of worlds (Dark Titan)
The Titans!
The titans, also known as the makers, the travelers (to the trolls), or the Great Ones (to the Oracles), are a race of extremely powerful, majestic creatures, akin to gods.These metallic giants traveled across the cosmos bringing order to worlds. Many believe them to simply be a progenitor race.
 History and cultureA generally aloof creator race, the titans are now a subject of significant interest on Azeroth, at least for the dwarves — especially the Explorers’ Guild. Their part in Azeroth’s history lies far, far back in time, although Sargeras has, of course, taken a more active role in recent conflicts through the Burning Legion. There are two known races of titans (aesir and vanir). The Pantheon are the leaders of the titans and some of the universe’s most powerful entities. Their figure is humanoid but gigantic, with gleaming metallic skin and a perfection of form that makes the heart ache.
Very little is known about the titans save for scraps the dwarves have unearthed and some vague night elf folklore. Few human scholars actually believed the mighty demigods even existed. Legend holds that the great ones shaped the land when the world was young, then left the world to its own devices. The ruins and buried cities that remain on Azeroth — Uldum beneath the Tanaris Desert, Ulduar beneath the Storm Peaks of Northrend, and Uldaman beneath the dwarven home of Khaz Modan — are known to a few to actually be “titanic” ruins. Most mortals believed that they were only ancient ruins. There are two presumed types of titan, the stronger, smarter, more agile aesir, and the tougher but less powerful vanir. One scholar has postulated that there are other subspecies of titans. No titans have ever been spotted, and it is believed that they live among the stars where they continue to this day shaping new worlds. In this passage, the majority of “scholars” and the “most mortals” refers primarily, if not entirely, to humans.
Each titan cultivates specific interests that relate to particular elements or energy types — essentially, to some small aspect of creation over which the titan holds a measure of dominance. Some titans refer to the piece of creation upon which they focus as their “sphere of power”.
Titans generally believe they are invincible. They wade into the thickest of battles using their most powerful abilities, or even just swinging with massive, alloyed fists. Titans with well-defined spheres of power have wildly varying combat tactics, focusing primarily upon the strengths of their spheres.
Types■Aesir (platinum) ■Vanir (bronze) Aesir and vanir are two presumed types of titans. However, it is believed that there may be other subspecies. In the game files “titans” have skins for gold, silver, stone, and ivory, in addition to bronze and platinum. These may represent additional titan subspecies.
Known TitansMost of the known titans come from the elite, ruling sect known as the Pantheon. Little is known of the names or details of the titans, beyond these few:
Pantheon■ Aman’Thul ■ Eonar ■ Norgannon ■ Khaz’goroth ■ Aggramar ■ Golganneth ■ Sargeras (Vanir titan/dark titan) ■ Avatar of Sargeras
