The commandersEdit

Why are there commanders shown to have been killed during the third war when they only visibly mentioned, and certainly slain in TFT, which was after the third war. Even more strange, is how if this is including TFT, why are only some commanders mentioned and others left out? Warden Shadowsong (talk) 11:52, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Because I did the commanders thing off the top of my head. If its wrong, change it.--TheUltimate (talk) 00:29, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Shouldn't there be Northrend in the places section? After all, there were several skirmishes fought there when Arthas tracked the scourge there, and slew Mal'ganis. (Okolorion (talk) 8:03, 1 March, 2009.

In game reference Edit

'The Third War' is the name players of the warcraft games would know this war by as it was chronicled in the third game. However, it does not really make sense for the inhabitants of Azeroth to call it this way. As the war is only casually related to the other wars. I know, there are perhaps more than casual relations between the wars but not so much that the witnesses of these wars would be likely to see them as a series of three wars. In real world history, wars are usually only seen as being part of a series when the sides in the wars are more or less the same. Especially the Night-Elves and Tauren, who did not experience the first two wars would not be likely to call this the third war. I could pose suggestions as to what they would be likely to call it but I am not trying to start a forum discussion here. So my point/question is: Is there any source material available for how the various inhabitants of azeroth call/see this war? Or is this just a looked-over issue? Like a little flaw in Warcraft lore. I am inclined to think it is the latter: I know for starters that there is at least a reference to it in the Death Knight talent: 'Veteran of the Third war'. Are there not also in game books that refer to it as such? If there is more available on this subject, I'm guessing it might be worth including it in the page. --Fransbal (talk) 11:56, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Other Orcs Edit

Hellscream and his Warsong Clan were pretty big players in the struggles of the Third War! Also, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the orcs under Thrall's command weren't all Frostwolf, but didn't they include members of the various freed clans that had been assembled? He is 'Lord of the Clans' after all. Not that each clan needs to be listed since at this point; they were all united as one force, but some kind of single credit should be given to this entire group if I'm right about this, not just the Frostwolves. ---Rotgar (talk) 17:33, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, the Warsong Clan did play a critical role in the Horde's progress in Kalimdore, providing warriors and raw materials. They fight they started is still being fought (Warsong Gulch). Also the New Horde was made up of the orcs in the interment camps, meaning the various clans that were left behind on Azeroth all had some part due to the fact most of them had members in Interment camps. It's not like every orc is now a member of the Frostwolf clan because Thrall freed them. Gorlack2231 (talk) 19:39, July 16, 2010 (UTC)
I'm glad you agree. I'd like to edit this, however I can only seem to edit the "war" template itself. Might not be the right place to ask, but how to I go about making these changes?---Rotgar (talk) 18:50, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
Scratch that, I've figured it out, I'll change this shortly unless anyone disagrees. ---Rotgar (talk) 20:01, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


Combatants updateEdit

I've updated the combatants section, felt some of the orc info wasn't entirely correct, the Night Elves were missing some of their allies/organizations, and that the list needed to be better formatted/organized. ---Rotgar (talk) 20:57, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

"Near the end" Combatants are wrong Edit

Most, if not all of these, are wrong as far as I understand. The Third War ended at the Battle of Mount Hyjal, did it not? These other forces listed are mostly involved in the various events following the aftermath of the war. not the war itself. ---Rotgar (talk) 03:45, May 3, 2011 (UTC)
