    11) Uldaman?

    Wrongish...

    Because the earthen stayed so long under ground, when they emerged from the mountains they discovered to have pale weak skin

    17) first death knights were created by Gul'dan, from the slaughtered members of the Shadow Council*EDIT: They were revived within fallen Stormwind Knights, while wielding powerful truncheons created from hearts of Necrolytes.

    The second generation of DKS came from fallen or corrupted paladins/warriors, imbued with powerful demonic magic and given rune blades.

    It doesn't kill the point. The whole lore makes sense if you know the books and the games well.

    No it doesn't. Books were written by novelist who had almost no connection and by Blizzards word their lore isn't 100% correct and only characters are part of the lore. Some books were even made just to justify things in WoW that never should happened.

    Also the big problem with lore are quest makers. All this was able to make lore full with loop holes. If you want I'll go write every mistake but It would take me days.

    Not according to guy who is in charge of lore. Novels are less accurate then games or are written to justify Blizzard like why orcs and humans are at war again .

    The Silver Hand was created by Uther and Archbishop Alonsus Faol (the first to preach the ways of the Holy Light) to order the first paladins (they were 5, Uther, Tirion, Saidan, Turalyon and Gavinrad)

    Orcs and Humans are at war again because of the events at the end of the Orc Campaign in WC3:TFT.
    And has you play WoW, you'll noticed that they even banded together when the cause demanded it, which meant their relationships were improving, until the events at the Wrathgate came to pass. Those events shattered any trust between the two factions, although neither had the fault.

    Pandaria is west of Stonetalon Mountains. Some claim that's it is on the shores of Kalimdor, west of the Mountains, some claim it is on the continent itself, some claim both. That's why currently there's a gray area in WoW.

    Also, under Light's Hope Chapel are the remains of the Heroes of Lordaeron.
