A Storm on the Horizon
The Warring Times
The Warring Times were a period of time immediately following the banishment of The Crimson King by the Paladin Ishar in 1A. It was during this period of strife (which is also considered the Battle for Akeroth) that soon followed that many of the races of Akeroth mistrusted each other specifically Man.
This time-period is marked by an almost continuous warfare that lasted almost hundreds of years and included sub-periods of times. While man was the first common enemy of the Akerothian peoples this sentiment soon changed as the Orcs during the Orc Wars, as the Orcs were usurped from their position in the social hierarchy and replaced by Man.
The Warring times were ultimately ended at the end of 2A when the Kender sacrificed themselves to prevent the Countless Hells from engulfing Akeroth. With the Kenders’ sacrifice the entirety of the world came to a standstill and an uneasy peace began, however, this would only last until the start of 3A (see Timeline).
