Notes and trivia

  • The book features the art of adult Li Li Stormstout.

Mistakes and inconsistencies

Given the fact that the entries are written from the characters's point of view, these could, theoretically, be considered as in-universe mistakes instead of retcons.

  • The book claims the Ruins of Dojan as potentially being the "Dojani Dungeons", while the older The Lost Dynasty in-game book writes "Dojanni Dungeons". It is unclear if the former is a spelling typo or change in canonical naming.
  • Shen-zin Su, a giant turtle, is referred to as a great dragon turtle.
  • Li Li notes that the portal to Darnassus in the Incursion has been repaired and that people can come and go as they please now. However, Darnassus was destroyed during the Burning of Teldrassil, so a portal to it would be of little use. This is likely an oversight.
  • When describing the Alliance attack on Garrosh'ar Point Li Li incorrectly declares that the commander was a man, when in reality that the commander was a female.
  • Li Li observes that the Kirin Tor and Sunreaver forces on the Isle of Thunder appear to have formed a truce, and that hostilities have cooled to friendly competition. The Sunreavers rejoined the Kirin Tor in World of Warcraft: Legion, which she makes no mention of. If not a continuity error, Li Li could just be conflating her blood elf factions: contrary to its namesake, the Sunreaver Onslaught was spearheaded by the leaders of Silvermoon; it stands to reason that Dawnseeker Promontory and Violet Rise are still maintained independently.
