Since it can be difficult to find all the basics that you need to know about Draenei lore I’ve compiled a post that is quick and to the point. It also includes links!
Lots of this information is very helpful, but the ONE THING that drives me crazy about that fucking…
The 200-250 years comes from Rise of the Horde. I can’t give you an exact quote but one of the Draenei mentions that they’ve only been on the planet for roughly two centuries.
And naturally…the game says something else. Blizz is terrible about keeping lore straight. Especially when you take into consideration that the Draenei came about because to paraphrase “lawful good demon would be awesome!” And then after that they gave them some basics then said screw everything else! Draenei got the shaft and still are receiving said shaft. They’re like the disowned child Blizz wants to forget about.
As far as Auchindoun goes it could be something they carried aboard the ship? There’s no real way to know exactly when or where it came into existence.
I personally find 200 years a bit of a short time to have build EVERYTHING they built but like I said I took that information from the book. But then again if they’d been on Draenor for thousands of years wouldn’t you think they would have made a little more effort to befriend the Orcs beyond just trade? You’d think they would have tried to make them proper allies instead of only contacting them to trade goods.
Then again, they did see the Orcs as primitive and perhaps thought leaving them on their own was best…but then really kind of defeated the whole thing about the Naaru wanting them to help recruit an army to fight the Legion.
I think I’ll stop there, because this is something I could ramble back and forth on forever. Pointing out how one timeline makes more sense than the other and so forth.
In the end it all boils down to how people want to interpenetrate that part since Blizz isn’t exactly going to help fix it.
