The Arcanomicon

The Arcanomicon is the map of all of the magical ley line intersections in the world of Azeroth[1]. Gifted to Malygos ages ago by the titan Norgannon, the Arcanomicon has been continuously updated and revised by the blue dragons over the long years of Malygos's seclusion. Malygos planned to use the Arcanomicon to locate and tap into the ley lines and divert the magical powers that course beneath the earth to his home base in Northrend, the Nexus.[2]

Inspiration Edit

  • Arcanomicon could mean two different things:
    • One, "Image of the Laws of the Arcane", which mix a word with latin roots - "arcane" - and the greek ending "nomicon" - mixture of "nomos" (law) and "eikon" (image).
    • Two, "Image of the Laws of Power, which is a full composed greek name that employs the word "arche" (power) and the suffix "nomicon".
    Both meanings can be considered as valid.
