Recently, there appears a research paper which reveals the  the deep connection between Norse Mythology and the World of Warcraft Unvierse. Let's check out the full research below.

The World of Warcraft, with the support of rich content, has no doubt to attract the majority of the community. Today, a research paper emphasizes the deep connect and influence of Norse Mythology in the universe of the World of Warcraft, and how the two fantasies are "parallel" to some degree.


Let's start by defining Norse. Norsemen is considered a full-time seafarer and trader in the Vikings era, and is the same relative as the Vikings. The only major difference is the occupation of two people. Although Norsemen was a seafarer and a full-time trader, the Vikings were peasants and soldiers of the "aristocratic birth." (They are also known as good at sailing).

Norsemen is famous for their Nordic mythology, including tribal culture, and how they view the world as it used to be. Just as how rich their culture, "World of Warcraft" has developed a deep hobby for the world we love today. A student is now having a deep study on the  the parallel nature between the "Norwegian mythology" and "World of Warcraft".
