The First War was a conflict fought between the orcs and humans following the arrival on Azeroth of the orcish clans of Draenor. The human kingdom of Azeroth was completely destroyed, its survivors forced to flee to Lordaeron. The true timeline of the First and Second Wars are blurred somewhat. The initial invasion of the Horde was crushed completely by the Humans, but after a change in power the Orc Horde came back for a second attempt. When the change of leadership happened in the Horde the First War ended, and when the Horde invades for a second time the Second War began.


The Second War was a conflict between the Alliance of Lordaeron and the Old Horde, engulfing all the lands of the Eastern Kingdoms, and ending with the victory for the Alliance. The events were chronicled in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. The Second War is also used to refer to events of Beyond the Dark Portal in some accounts as well.


War of the Spider was a conflict between the fledgling undead army of the Lich King and the Nerubian kingdom of Azjol-Nerub in Northrend.


The Third War was a conflict between the mortal races of Azeroth against the Burning Legion. Unlike the previous wars, the Third War took place in both the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. In the war, the ancient Night elves were reintroduced to the world. Its events were chronicled in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.


The Nexus War is an ongoing conflict between the blue dragonflight and the alliance between the Wyrmrest Accord - a coalition of the four remaining dragonflights - and the Kirin Tor of Dalaran. The war was instigated by Malygos the Spellweaver, the Aspect of the blue dragonflight and Lord of Magic.


The war against the Lich King (also called the "war against the Scourge"[3][4] and "battle against the Lich King"[5]) is an ongoing war that is played out in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. It started when Varian Wrynn prepared to attack the Scourge, but the Lich King had already made his plans and attacked Stormwind before he could send the offensive, at the same time the Scourge invaded Orgrimmar, and so the war began.
