Headcanon 2: Electric Boogaloo

I think it's that time of the month again kids, where we discuss what wonderful headcanon we've got cooking! Let it be small tidbits involving lore ranks, or how the economy is run. To possibly controversial claims like witnessing such an important event as the creation of the universe!

What is your headcanon!

(P.S: While on the topic of headcanon I'd like to announce I'm running for High King of the Alliance, we shall build a wall and make the Horde pay for it!)

As for my headcanon, all Zandalari Trolls speak with a Ugandan accent.
Lightforged have plasma shields because they're protoss.
I still hold to the idea that goblins are low key the reason the Horde even exists anymore. They provide all the infrastructure, management and do pretty much everything else boring because they do it so damn well.
Draenor isn't a planet but is actually a moon of the larger of the two objects you see in its sky
There's a lot of ideas, but one I like is that Draenei (and Eredar) males are prejudiced against based on their head-shape. (Demonology Hidden Appearance kinda hints at this too)

Like a large headcrest is obviously a sign of strength, the Jed'hin is all about strength and opens with headbutting eachother (as we see in Mac'Aree), while large facial tentacles are a sign of emotional sensetivity, because they're sensory organs, like whiskers/tentacles.

Obviously a man with long tentacles and a sprawling headcrest would be the most traditionally handsome!

I'm pretty sure that's just regular canon. They certainly have some kinda shields.

*enjoying her Prydaz bubble*

We should just go back to calling ourselves Eredar so the Demonology lore fits better.

PART EIGHT

From chapter one of A Treatise on Eredar Phrenology:

"The science of phrenology--the study of skull shape as a means to determine intellectual aptitude--became popular in Argus around the time of the Second Duumvirate. Its proponents believed that an eredar's mental faculties, such as willpower, memory, and perception, could be attributed to the shape and size of various protuberances on that individual's skull. Some theorized that if an eredar's skull was sufficiently well-proportioned for spellcasting, it could be utilized to channel magical energies even after death. This practice was deemed too barbaric to be put into common use, though it was not unheard of.

"Among the most prominent phrenologists during this period were Thal'kiel and Archimonde. Thal'kiel in particular was noted for having the archetypal sorcerer's skull, for which he was widely admired."
DKs have greater physical strength than most living because of the unholy power which infuses them.

Is that really headcanon? Aren't both DKs and DHs noted as being stronger than normal members of their race?

Not quoting the enitre thing since it would take up unnecessary amounts of space but this is pretty much what I go off, though I personally see Vargoth wielding Aluneth, other than that spot on.

They get a 15% strength buff from Unholy Might passive.

Tbh I have no idea. It's probably canon but idk. *shrug*
Lor'themar banned the High Elves from the Sunwell.

The Sunwell is also extremely heavily guarded (unlike the, like two guards, you see ingame).

A'dal hates Xe'ra guts, which is why we didn't see the Shattered Sun and Sha'tar in Legion.
Also my headcanon is that the racial base line stats are representative of their lore traits.

Think about it, humans are baseline average. Not outstanding at anything, not great at anything either.

Draenei, tauren, worgen, dwarves, orcs, trolls have the highest strength by baseline.

Races like night elves, gnomes, goblins, trolls and blood elves have high agility.

So it all adds up to how those races are represented in lore. With that in mind, blood elves have the highest intellect, gnomes and goblins btfo

Except they're not.

But it seems the Sunwell reacts very badly to anything on the shadowy side of the spectrum.
Hey, it's just my headcanon.

Why allow enemies of the state inside your borders?

My life for Aiur... <cough> Argus. My life for ARGUS!

Regrettably that would leave the Pandaren in equal strength as humans which wouldn't be the case at all, same with agility, which would be lower even which isn't how their portrayed at all.

Head cannon; That the Lightforged has their own light version of the khala. "I fear no enemy. For the Khala is my strength. I fear not death. For our strength is eternal"
I thought headcannon was something that you use when there's no proof either way?

EDIT: Proof being lore, I thought headcannon was just to fill in the gaps in the lore.
