First of all, we run on 1.15.x game client — the first ever fully-interactive story expansion for Vanilla WoW. This expansion takes a different path from Burning Crusade, emphasizing the familiar Azeroth of Vanilla WoW over the cosmic battle with the Legion. It's heavily based on the background lore from Warcraft 3 and Vanilla WoW, and seeks to follow some of the story threads from those games without breaking established lore.
