Canonicity

The sword itself is canon. Loreology on twitter said the name "Gorshalach" (which only appears in the RPG) is tentatively canon. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 18:45, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Really? You don´t happen to have a transcript of this statement? Would be good because according to my notes the tweet about Gorshalach and his two fragments was in August 2014 and it said something along the lines of "the info of the weapons is non-canon until stated otherwise" which is kinda not what your´e saying... and if it´s true, it should definitely be noted. --Mordecay (talk) 19:45, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't. It was sometime before 2014-12-27. The info about the weapons is definitely non-canon (semi-sentient, splitting itself in half, Aggramar reforging the other half, only reform with a good person, etc.). But Sargeras owning a greatsword and a broken piece of one are canon, as shown in the WoW Magazine. Its name being "Gorshalach" as tentatively canon (he didn't say anything about the names of the pieces). I get the argument that the broken one isn't definitively stated to be the broken piece of Sargeras' original sword (name notwithstanding), but the intention is pretty clear. Gorshalach was Sargeras' signature weapon and that's the one depicted in the comic, along with the other titans with their signature tools. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 20:25, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
You sure it was from Loreology? Because since around 2014-11-15 he wasn´t very active and, in fact, I have nothing noted from him since that date. Though I agree with the part that Sargeras had a sword and then its broken part but the rest idk, man...--Mordecay (talk) 20:50, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't remember when the tweet was made, 2014-12-27 is just the earliest I started noting it. The only previous note I made about it was in 2014-02-26, prior to learning the name was tentatively canon. If I had to guess, it was mid-late 2014. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 21:23, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
