A New Alliance.
8:30 AM EST | Brad Custer
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is the exciting new expansion to Blizzard Entertainment's award-winning massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
It expands the game by tremendous bounds, adding new races, lands, Battlegrounds, professions and items, and more.
The Draenei descended from the Eredar, the same ancient race as Archimonde, leader of the Burning Legion's recently thwarted invasion of Azeroth, they resisted the demonic forces that corrupted their brethren and fled their ancient homeworld, devoting themselves to ending the Legion's apocalyptic crusade.
The Draenei visited many worlds in their travels and explored much of the known cosmos on their quest to find safe harbor.
During this exodus they befriended the enigmatic Naaru -- a race of beings with a deep affinity for the Holy Light of Creation that empowers the paladins of Azeroth.
The Naaru blessed the Draenei with this power in an effort to help them in their struggle.
This makes them a natural ally of the Alliance races who embrace this holy power.
In addition, the Draenei hold no affinity for certain Horde races.
They outright hate the Orcs, who nearly drove the Draenei to extinction in Outland.
And more recently, the Blood Elves stole technology from the Draenei and also sabotaged their dimensional ship, which crash landed on Azeroth.
A strong and welcomed ally in the battle against the horde. ;)
With the release of the expansion pack World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade from Blizzard Entertainment looming on the horizon my inbox has been flooded with emails for another visit to this anticipated title.
As always, I enjoy honoring your requests so I find myself returning to the realm we all love so much.
It felt only right that my second desktop for the expansion would feature the other new race in the game.
I was able to make this week's wallpaper with the help of Blizzard Entertainment.
I simply entitled this selection, "Draenei", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)
Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.
