I found this little beauty lying randomly at the north-western pillar inside Wintergrasp fortress, outside the instance. Who would have known Archavon was such a cutie? <3
Edit: This journal is kept "backwards" apparently, so the first day he writes is at the last page.
Second edit: Since they started adding on to it, it is no longer kept backwards.
Im curious, anyone know what was happening on "Day 2145617?" I'm guessing the sundering, but i really have no idea on timeline.
Assuming there are 365 days a year in Azeroth, this means that Archavon is at least 9900 years old.
has 9,970,675 hp, maybe he started with 9000 HP and gained ~1000 each year? lol
This is purely out of curiosity about the other realms.
Can people post what the journal says for Horde and Alliance captures and defends?
I'll start it off

Looking at the model of Archavon's log, I think the scribblings may be
script, one of the oldest written languages, originally from Sumer, known as the cradle of civilisation.
I have absolutely no idea what it says, though. Either somebody at Blizzard will have to translate for us, or we're left waiting for the appearance of a WoW-playing language historian.
i always seen this book but my mind never registerd that it was a readable one =(
This would be a nice anti qq item. On my server (EU Anachronos) there is a ~2:1 ally/horde relationship but the wins/losses are almost identical (a difference of max ~15% iirc) and defense only loses about 60% of the times.
Very useful book if you ask me.
this is just an assumption but during day 900500 or something he says "it gets cold". I don't know what the max was so i cant compare the time, but maybe this is when the lich king came? If its not please downrate, i didn't compare times.
On Garona, both the Horde and Alliance Keep Captured count is identical (and has been before). Does this bug exist on other servers as well?
Been very boring outside. Archavon go to sleep. Some noises outside, it get cold.
This might be the day that Northrend turned into the frosty glade familiar to those progressing through it... due to the slow drift of it upwards after the Great Sundering.
I have no idea what comes next though.
This is the timeline as written previous to patch 3.3. Archavon's Log is currently bugged in patch 3.3, I'll write up the new timeline after they fix it..
shape Azeroth into the world as we know it; Create Archavon.
10 Days Later:
"The makers left. Archavon left here to watch."
The Titans leave Azeroth.

"Been very boring outside. Archavon go to sleep. Some noises outside, it get cold."
The Well of Eternity Created
. The balance of the elements is upset, causing wintergrasp to freeze over.
2880 Years, 13 Days Later:
"Archavon wake up, notice face feel soft. Not important. Go back to sleep."
Curse of Flesh

"Large quakes outside. Little people seem to be busy. Archavon stay in home."
9900 Years, 225 Days Later:
"The little people come to Wintergrasp from across the ocean. Fight many times everyday. Archavon watch."
The start of "Wrath of the Lich King". Alliance and Horde forces fight in wintergrasp.
9900 Years, 260 Days Later:
"At night, Archavon sneak out and collect the armor they leave behind. Archavon try to fix. Tough to do."
The reason why Archavon has tier and pvp gear.
9900 Years, 285 Days Later:
"Archavon stop journal. Instead, watch puny little men fight. When they finish, Archavon wake up and see who touch orb fastest."
This seems to have had an update.
I feel even guiltier for killing him now...
My brothers are back! It turns out they were sleeping in other closed off halls.
I'm a little mad that they left me alone to do all the watching, but I shared my shinier baubles with them anyway because I'm tired of being alone and attacked all the time.
The violent little people have started attacking my brothers, which is sad. They leave me mostly alone now though, which is not sad.
I think they want the shiny baubles I gave away. I feel guilty now.
please tell me why again we're slaughtering this purely innocent giant who does nothing besides stand there with his two brothers all day long?
i mean, it's not like he's attacking us at all, or a threat.
Asides comedic purposes and inspiring guilt.
If you've got a horrible WG team on your server, this is a slap in the face when you happen to see it.
Your side wins: 80!
Other side wins: 1100!
It's not even funny. >_>
Archavon needs a hug.. he's so lonely as of 3.3.
I want to visit him, just to hug him and turn away without doing the innocent revenant-kicking-giant harm
possible lore-explanation for the dates being off, granting an excuse for the writers making a mistake:
Maybe when the Curse of Flesh got him, his brain turning organic damaged his internal clock, or his ability to record really precise dates?
I think they may misspell some numbers after the update
It would have been cool if Blizzard wrote something after the release of Cataclysm like "Now they all leave me alone" or something along those lines .
According to this log people starting raiding VoA 374 days after the fighting over Wintergrasp began, which means that the Alliance and Horde landed in Northrend about a year before the expansion began.
