Elegy is a World of Warcraft novella by Christie Golden. It recounts the War of the Thorns from the Alliance's point of view, while its companion novella A Good War details the Horde perspective.[1] Both novellas take place simultaneously.[2] The story takes place after the events of Before the Storm.[3][4]

A limited edition hardback book containing both A Good War and Elegy along with exclusive original artwork will be included in the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Collector's Edition. Both stories were announced to become available online later in 2018, but buying the Collector's Edition would remain the only way to own the hardback version containing original artwork.[1] The digital version of the stories were released on August 6, 2018.[5]

Description

Tension and drama unfolds between the Horde and the Alliance in the Battle for Azeroth novellas Elegy by Christie Golden and A Good War by Robert Brooks. These two tales explore the Horde and the Alliance versions of a fateful event, but only you can decide which faction tells it best.[5]

The artwork is EXCLUSIVE to this edition too!

"Elegy" is a novella which, in tandem with "A Good War," tells both H and A sides of the burning of the World Tree. "Before the Storm" takes place BEFORE that event. They are two thoroughly different stories.

"Before the Storm" focuses on Anduin and Sylvanas & takes place BEFORE the World Tree burning. Elegy" is a novella that, along with @RoBrooks13 "A Good War," depicts both sides of that event -and- has a few non-spoilery references to BtS.

To allay some fears: There are TWO novellas, one by @RoBrooks13 and one by me, in the BfA Collector's edition. Each one has a looot of art, and each one runs around 35K words. Total reading is therefore the length of a short novel. So lots to enjoy!
