The spirit world draws close during the Day of the Dead.
This is why we decorate the graves of our dearly departed with flowers and candles and offerings: To welcome them back, even if only for a time.

Let us cherish and honor those we have lost in their ghostly presence so that they might eat and drink and smile and know that they are loved. – Catrina

Delve into the world of dragons from before the events of World of Warcraft®: Dragonflight in this exciting prequel. A new light will shine on the story of the war of the dragons and the impact it’s had on the very future of the dragonflights.

When the world was young, all life shook before the might of Galakrond, a massive primal dragon whose hunger could not be sated. Five primal dragons rose valiantly beside the titan-forged Keeper Tyr to combat this threat. Though the fight was desperate, Galakrond fell by their teeth and talons, and they were chosen to become protectors of Azeroth. The titans gifted Nozdormu, Ysera, Alexstrasza, Malygos, and Neltharion with order magic, transforming them into the Aspects, powerful dragons with command of time, nature, life, magic, even the earth itself. Other primal dragons followed them on their path, and, imbued with the titans’ power, the dragonflights rose to shape the world and serve the Aspects.
