Azeroth is dying.

The Horde and the Alliance defeated the demonic Burning Legion, but
a dire catastrophe is unfolding deep below the surface of the world.
There is a mortal wound in the heart of Azeroth, struck by the sword
of the fallen titan Sargeras in a final act of cruelty.

For Anduin Wrynn, king of Stormwind, and Sylvanas Windrunner,
warchief of the Horde and queen of the Forsaken, there is little time to
rebuild what remains, and even less to mourn what was lost. Azeroth's
devastating wound has revealed a mysterious material known as
Azerite. In the right hands, this strange golden substance is capable
of incredible feats of creation; in the wrong ones, it could bring forth
unthinkable destruction.

As Alliance and Horde forces race to uncover the secrets of Azerite
and heal the wounded world, Anduin enacts a desperate plan aimed
at forging a lasting peace between the factions. Azerite jeopardizes the
balance of power, and so Anduin must gain the trust of Sylvanas. But
the Dark Lady ever has her own machinations.

For peace to be possible, generations of bloodshed and hatred must
be put to rest. But there are truths that neither side is willing to accept
and ambitions they are loath to relinquish. As Alliance and Horde
alike grasp for the Azerite's power, their simmering conflict threatens
to reignite all-out war-a war that would spell doom for Azeroth.
