Do you want to start playing World of Warcraft, but don’t have to time or willpower to read and familiarize yourself with all that has happened since the game launch? Did you breeze through all that pesky text that comes with each mission, and now have no idea what’s going on?

Fear not! YouTube user Nobbel87 has created a 40 minute video summarizing the entire lore of Warcraft Рfrom the events prior to the old RTS games, and up to the upcoming expansion Warlords of Draenor.

This video is a part of a very long series detailing the story behind the Warcraft games.

Thanks to PC Gamer¬†for bringing this video to my attention. I still have about 30 minutes to watch, so if you’ll excuse me…
