SPOILER The Current Timeline Of Wynncraft Lore

    Minecraft:
    Wynncraft has gained various amounts of new lore throughout the years, and changes to the old established pieces of history. An official timeline of all the known historical events has been created by Grian (according to his old profile post), however, it hasn’t been revealed to the public. There have been a few fanmade timelines in the past, but all of them are now unfortunately outdated. So earlier this year, I decided to start creating a cohesive and updated timeline of the current Wynncraft lore that has clear dates of when they happened.

    While there are still a lot of Wynncraft history that does not currently have any exact dates to go from and would be pretty much impossible to “calculate” their time periods, there are still nice amounts of information to create a timeline.

    But first, I would like to give a mention to @jpmrocks and his timeline thread from 2017. His timeline was pretty much the only good one at the time and it helped me tremendously at creating this thread. While it is outdated like I said before, I still have to give him credit for creating it in the first place. You can check it out right here!

    And as you may notice when comparing these timelines, pretty much all of the approximations haven’t been transferred into this timeline. The thing is, like jpmrocks said himself, they are “guesstimations” and should be accounted at your own risk. I really tried to search the game itself to find any actual dates for those events, but couldn’t. Some of them, such as the founding of the Caritat Mansion weren’t trustable. It could’ve easily taken place 70 or 20 years ago, depending on the last Caritat’s, Atisun’s, age which isn’t told in the game. I also couldn’t find any exact dates for the Ice Nations events and the Corkus factory creation for example, so I didn’t include them here. I kind of wanted this timeline to have the events as “trustable”, so the approximations aren’t here. Still, you can check out the old timeline of jpmrocks if you want to see them.

    Also, for the newcomers to this server or people in general who don’t know:
    BP = Before Portal (Before the corruption portal’s opening)
    AP = After Portal (After the corruption portal’s opening)

    But anyways, here it is:

    The Current Timeline of Wynncraft
    Color Guide
    • Non-colored text means that the info is from a quest.
    • Red color means that the info is from one of the lore libraries.
    • Blue color means that the info is from a discovery, both secret and territorial.
    • Cyan color means that the info is from an item’s lore.
    • Orange color means that the info is from a non-quest NPC.
    • Green color means that the info is told by something in a certain location (e.g. signs in Skien’s Island) and isn’t really told in quests, discoveries, by NPCs or in item lores.

    I have now added the currently unknown dates to the timeline that are mentioned in quests, item lores, specific locations, etc.

    I would also like to mention that there is a possibility for the Olm and the ancients to be part of the same species, or at least be related to each other in some form. But it hasn't been confirmed yet.

    Feels quite traitorous of Hashr, the emperor's 26th son to do that, also what does it mean by "life between the walls"?
    ________________________________
    I do have a theory about the rupture that the Purple and Blue meteor was the cause, it probably caused a massive earthquake upon impact from telling by its size, and two crystals broke off from the meteor and found a way into the void, one of them purple which you are sent to find in One Thousand Meters Under and stumble upon a blue one, suggesting that these crystals may be what is causing the void to spread and infect the villagers who live down below and why they need the purple crystal as a power source as they are imbued with it, but this knowledge is probably fairly known and easily guessed but it would figure out the time that the meteor crashed in.

    Bump. Added a new color (green) and also colored the unknown dates section just in case someone questions it in the future.

    So I'm 99.9% sure that it was actual cataclysm.
    For many reasons.

    1. Cataclysm's lore.

    "Despite the existence of the Nether Portal, few believe that it is possible to open such rifts with sheer force alone. None believe that a tool with enough power to accomplish such a monumental feat could exist. And yet..."

    This is its newest lore, before it read something different, something about it falling from the heavens, and having been able to cut threw rifts and worlds, similar to its current lore.

    And yes, we know where it fell.

    2. Where it fell.

    "
    • Trials Overseer: I hafta wonder now if this weren't bein' guarded for a bit of a nefarious reason. This be... Quite the weapon. It'd be deadly if this got used.
    • Trials Overseer: Well, thanks to ye, us Skyraiders might have it now, but using this weapon against civilization would be beyond terrible. We might be pirates but we ain't heartless!
    • Trials Overseer: I think we'll just have to keep this locked up nice n' tight once we get back. We'll be sure to tie this little cataclysm-in-a-box down much safer th'n those idiot men did. "

    This means it was more then likely landed on sky islands.

    I will post more later if I find it.

    I mean there just crystals really?

    For all I know they are the things spreading the void, but I'm almost 100% sure they didn't shatter the sky islands.
