They actually explained this at Blizzcon and it contradicts this. Seriously, on your own website. Go look.Arugal summoned Worgen to defend Gilneas against the Scourge, and had no intention of harming his home nation. They're in some way related to an ancient sect of Night Elf druids and it is heavily implied that they are not in fact extradimensional, but from another period of time far earlier in the history of the world (most likely the War of the Ancients).And, the cure to the curse that allows Worgen to maintain their presence of mind in both forms is developed in Gilneas, ask anyone who played through the Gilneas starting zone at blizzcon, it is the first or second quest.Perhaps retcon, perhaps incomplete storytelling, in any case you're just plain ignoring everything actually said about "Cataclysm Worgen" other than "they're from Gilneas".

This man is 100% correct. The Worgen are NOT from another dimension, but from Kalimdor's ancient past.Also, the Worgen in Gilneas were NOT directly cursed by Arugal. It was the soldiers who fought alongside the Worgen that first began turning into Worgen at night. These men quickly spread the curse throughout Gilneas.Honestly, did you even listen to what was being said at Blizzcon about the Worgen?

WoW.com? Proof Checking?Don't be silly!

You're assuming they're from the past. All the comment said was "someWHEN else". The Worgen Arugal hoped to use against the Scourge could very well be summoned from the cataclysm-era. Go go time paradox.

I think WoW.com is going by the old version that was known about the Worgen not this new version. The old version did state that Argual did create the new Worgen when he was mad. This new part of Humans fighting along side the Worgen getting turned into Worgen themselves is Blizz changing/altering/giving the finger to Lore that they already stated.

@Jacob: You're taking as fact something the very website referenced (the official Blizzard page describing the Worgen) states is specilation. You're also reading into the text stuff that isn't there. What the Blizzard website says is, "Records indicate that the worgen existed for a time in Kalimdor. In fact, more recent evidence suggests that their true origin might have a connection to the night elves and a secretive druidic order from Kalimdor's distant past. Yet until new evidence comes to light, this information remains speculative." Note that it does NOT say the WORGEN come from the distant past, rather, it says they may have a CONNECTION to a secret order of NIGHT ELF DRUIDS from the distant past. It does NOT say the Worgen are FROM Kalimdor (merely that they existed there for a time).

Tarin is right. People, go read your WoWwiki.com info instead of article bashing.

This makes a lot more sense to me. I have no problem with beings from other planets/dimensions (yay, BC), but it has to fit the "flavor" of the race/zones/class/etc. Other dimensions are a lot less creepy than having their origin be the result of a curse. I think, anyway.

"...ask anyone who played through the Gilneas starting zone at blizzcon, it is the first or second quest."They started goblins and worgen at level 6, to keep the early phases a surprise and let people see some of the stuff that happens in later levels.The Blizzcon demos don't accurately represent level 1-15, since they start in the middle of the zones.
