*** The wingless Arakkoa were not cursed by fel magic. They were cursed by being dunked in the blood of Sethe, a wind serpent god killed by Anzu in the distant past. It's shown in patch 6.2 that fel magic can actually *cure* the curse of Sethe and restore their wings (they effectively trade one curse for another). This source of the wingless Arakkoa curse is shown in detail in a quest chain in Spires of Arak.

*** Rightfully so, too: [[spoiler: it's supposedly his solidified blood. In Dragonblight, you learn that the Tuskarr call it "the black blood of Yogg-Saron".]]

* Given that the orcs who were interned were the children of the ones who committed the horrible war crimes, were still beaten shat on forced to live in their own excrement in cramped conditions just because of what their parents did, and that children punished for what their parents did tend to have a massive chip on their shoulder, if anything Daelin's reckless attack confirmed a lot of feelings the orcs had, making his actions the biggest NiceJobBreakingItHero in the entire franchise. Even with his death he managed to fuck it all up

** Basically, because Blizzard said "we don't want this to be seen as a time travel expansion". The reason noone meets their AU counterpart is because the AU counterparts of all the orcs and draenei that go there are "conveniently" either dead or never existed to begin with.

* In ''Warcraft III'', Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore has this to say to Jaina about understanding the situation with the orcs: ''"I understand more than you suspect, my dear. Perhaps in time, you will too."'' Fast forward to Tides of War and ''Mists of Pandaria''...

** Ditto for every important Broken Draenei who, in spite of their crucial roles in Draenei society, do not go through the Dark Portal to help. I bet Akama would have loved to go back in time to avenge the demons who ruined his life...

** Untrue. The Sundering left behind scores of demons on Kalimdor, none of whom are known for being weak. Felwood and Desolace are in that state specifically because the demons are so powerful. There were also trolls, centaur, undead Highborne, harpies, giants, and other humanoid creatures beyond Ashenvale. Sure, they aren't as advanced as the night elves but a few hundred barbarians can easily overwhelm a band of archers. Remember the Night Elf empire spanned from Winterspring to at least Desolace and from Darkshore to Azshara. Remember also that the night elf empire was all but completely obliterated, leaving how many thousands of elves behind to rebuild? In other words, Tyrande never presided over a standing army. She presided over snipers and raiders who kept the enemy at bay along massive borders, i.e., brilliant archers and other ranged characters. The true bruisers were male druids who were all asleep. She is bad at tactics for the same reason many countries flounder when going from battlefield to guerrilla warfare. What she needs to fight now is not what she needed to fight in the past. *** The more likely reason is the seeming misogyny of the writers. Every major female character in Warcraft III, e.g, Tyrande, Maeiv, Sylvanas, Jaina, and Lady Vashj, was absolutely neutered. Take the Battle for Mount Hyjal: in Warcraft III, Jaina's camp could hold out for a decent amount of time against the demons before being overrun. In the raid, she would let out a despairing whining wail of, "They've broken through..." whenever she was attacked. (Thrall would yell, "Take the fight to me and pay with your lives," on the other hand.) This line was changed somewhere in WoTLK when Blizzard realized one of the most powerful mages in all of Azeroth could probably take a few hits. Hell she killed her own father to preserve peace. **** The general uselessness of the Night Elves is [[Lampshade Hanging lampshaded]] during the MoP scenario, "A little patience". The achievement for aiding the Night Elves is called, "I Used to Love Them."
