The World of Warcraft is one of the most extensively played online multiplayer games.

It comes under the "role-playing games" genre and has multiple characters and a plotline to follow. It belongs to the Warcraft fantasy universe and has multiple depictions of race and has a culture of its own.

Inside this world of fantasy exists a certain uncorrupted race of beings that fled from their homeworld and are considered supreme. There is a huge hue and cry about these being called "Draenei" and because they are of utmost importance, the names given to them are in turn important to the game and plot as well.

The capital city of Draenei is Exodor.
