Under the radar: the official Warcraft Encyclopedia

Blizzard Encyclopedia

The nice people at Blizzard have started posting articles to their official Warcraft Encyclopedia.  The main link is located at the top of the ‘Workshop’  section of the main WOW community site.

While it far from complete and lacks much of the depth found in the wowwiki, it is the official source and it has some noteworthy features. The official encyclopedia takes a very dry authoritative tone and focuses on rather abstract concepts such as immortals and demigods (with liberal doses of Burning Crusade references).

Speculation: It seems that either Blizzards creative writers want to flesh out their back-story for the upcoming expansion, or they have nothing to do right now (seems unlikely) and they are emptying all their notebooks onto the website (also seems unlikely).
