3. Warcraft has recently gotten political
Maine Democratic senatorial candidate Colleen Lachowicz was controversially known for being an extremely dedicated member of Azeroth.

However, she defeated incumbent Tom Martin in the 2012 senate race! Apparently, Warcraft isn’t just a training ground for future CEOs, but also senators!

5. Silence of the Horde?
Warcraft can take on a narrative more like Silence of the Lambs at times, with the Undead race having the ability to eat their victims and regain health. So, yes, cannibalism is possible in Azeroth.
Hope you enjoyed these fun facts I found as we wrap up Warcraft for the year!
