Lore Question: Bronze Dragonflight and Outland/Argus?
Return to board index
Something struck me today. If the Bronze Dragonflight guards the timelines on Azeroth, then who does the same in Outland, and consecutively on Argus? Wouldn't the absence of the Bronzies mean Orcs, or perhaps more likely Draenei, could tamper with timelines all they wanted before they came to Azeroth, assuming they learned/developed Chronomancy?
Consecutively, though this might rather be a question of temporal logic; How does the Dark Portal work in the Black Morass instance? The portal opens a spatial gateway between two points. One is in Azeroth, right in the instance, in space controlled by the Bronzies. The other is in Outland/Draenor, in space/time not controlled by the Bronzies. Thus, couldn't the opening of the Dark Portal be prevented by going to Outland, going back in time, and preventing the events leading up to the opening of the portal, thus unequivocally and retroactively preventing the portal from opening on Azeroth?
We don't really know.
Quite honestly, I don't think Blizz even thinks these things through. It's just sorta: Here's a cool idea, let's do it NOW!

; would you want to piss off the Titan Highfather?
As for the Orcs; since they've only recently learned Arcane Magic, they wouldn't have been able to back in the past.
In regards to the Portal: The Black Morass is a doomed time line, one that is not meant to exist; had the Infinite Flight won there, the Portal would have never opened in the first place. Even if the adventures had gone through, they would have walked right into the Dark Horde forces waiting to come through to raze Azeroth.
The only reason the Portal was able to open was because it was Sargeras in Medivh's body; just as in the War of the Ancients, where he worked with the Highborne to make a Portal, it was an outside force that was manipulating those powers, and not anything to do with Time.
