Not to be confused with The Story of Warcraft or The Story So Far.

The History of Warcraft is a part of the Warcraft universe. It is a comprehensive account of Warcraft's history created by Blizzard Entertainment as background information to the World of Warcraft universe, and is made up of the entirety of Blizzard's published record so far.[1] The full text was available on the official World of Warcraft site. Additionally, all chapters can be read below or within the game itself as in-game books.

The compendium was first released on July 16, 2004.[2]

An updated version of Warcraft's history is presented in World of Warcraft: Chronicle.
