Why isn't Pandaria as frigid and arctic as Northrend?

I'm not sure when did we learn Azeroth orbits around a star the same way the Earth does.


WoW and earth share a 24 hour day. So that alone makes it entirely possible.


I don't think you could have made a less intelligent, more inane post. Let's break it down!

First of all, I never said it was not possible. Hell, I never said I don't believe it, I merely asked for confirmation from official sources. Not only that, but even with confirmation of Azeroth orbiting a star, there could still be plenty of explanations of Pandaria not being the frigid mess Northrend is.

Then, you make a ridiculous comment about a 24 hour day means Azeroth could be orbiting a star? You are correct, Azeroth could, however, the length of even presence of a day/night pattern is not evidence in its favor whatsoever. Every other planet on our solar system has a different rotation period, and they orbit around a star too. How does your argument make sense considering that? Not to mention that day/night relies on a planet's rotation upon itself and being near a star, not it's orbit around one. Despite all planets sharing these two traits, to assume they do as well on a fantasy world that hasn't even been properly charted in its own fantasy setting, let alone placed properly in space, is a terrible argument.

I thought about this once but all I could think off is that it shouldn't be necessarily like Earth, though funny enough the day/month/year spans DO seem like what we are used to. Of course, I am not saying that it's February 2nd 2013 now in Azeroth but the holidays and major events duration as confirmed by the developers for example when they say that Arthas is in his 30s or that Deathwing emerged 3 years after the Northrend Campaign somehow point out to similarities.

Then I read what the other guys said: What if this indeed isn't yet the entire planet?

My guess is the Azeroth map isn't geographically scaled nor representative correctly, and is solely there for "gameplay" purposes.

maybe the map is using unreliable narrative, you're just seeing what people of azeroth think is real

Wrathion shows you the globe with northrend at the top and pandaria at the bottom.
