Omega-Prime has little to show at this moment (9)

Before the Titans arrived in Azeroth, there were five Old Gods who reigned over the raging elementals. After the war, three were imprisoned under the earth; one was slain, and his corpse rests in Darkshore, a shining glaive in his forehead (which, one would presume, belonged to a Titan).

Another one, in a one-against-one battle against a Titan, had success in slaying the Titan but was left greatly weakened. This Old God was C'thun.

During the War of the Ancients (as detailed in the trilogy with the same name), the three Old Gods that lie imprisoned under the earth are responsible for the corruption of Neltharion, responsible for the transformation of Queen Azshara and her servants into the Naga and, perhaps, responsible of the very abnormality in time that almost destroyed Nozdormu and the world. They used Neltharion to create the Demon Soul, which they then managed to, through Malfurion and Illidan, send to Sargeras. This powerful disc would be used to strengthen Sargeras' portal, allowing him to enter the world of Azeroth. However, the Old Gods were simply fooling Sargeras and his demons into the creation of a portal which they would then usurp, creating a gateway into their prison through which they might escape.

The Old Gods are thus so powerful that they not only used Sargeras himself as a pawn, but were able to corrupt one of the Aspects and imprison another (Nozdormu) in order to facilitate their task. In the current state of events, they are the most powerful beings in Azeroth, and perhaps in the entire Warcraft universe.

Ok, that may explain something, but still how come the Old Gods even in their weakend state never once tried to get out, through their minions and regain some power. I mean why are they sleeping ffs they should be out conquering mortals and consuming them...

The Old Gods, after waging a war against the Titans, were imprisoned under the earth. In that prison, their powers are weakened, and even then they used Neltharion and Sargeras to attempt to escape. As for the minions of the Old Gods, the elementals, they exist in a separate plane of existance, only able to come to the world of Azeroth when summoned and bond to an entity. This is what occurs with the Archmage and the Water Elemental, for example. The Old Gods probably enlisted the elementals as their servants in exchange for a permanent bond to the "real" plane. When the Old Gods were defeated, the bonds were severed, and the elementals, for the most part, were sent back to the elemental planes (there are some exceptions, according to lore; in the Thousand Needles, in World of Warcraft, a rock elemental named "Rok'alim" is one of many elementals who had enough power in themselves to keep themselves connected to the world of Azeroth by themselves).

Now, the elementals themselves require "exterior" entities to even be able to exist in the world of Azeroth. Groups such as the Twilight's Hammer serve the elementals and thus, indirectly, the Old Gods, summoning elementals into the world of Azeroth. Also, as Phoenix pointed out, the imprisoned Old Gods aren't "asleep"; C'thun spent countless aeons perverting the Silithid into servitude, and even attempted to assault the world in the War of the Shifting Sands, only to be stopped and imprisoned behind the Scarab Wall by a coalition of Bronze Dragons and Night Elves.

I reckon Sargeras in his prime would cream an Old God.

In my opinion, If I'm Sageres. It will be such a great idea to let all old god free.
But in others... Have u guy thought that if the Titans bind all old god beneath. Then why Ragnaros been free that easy just by a few dwarf sorcerrors.

I've some idea...
what about If the old gods didn't tried to consumed everything...
what if Azeroth have only elemental creature from the first.
That's mean Azeroth was rightful belong to the old gods.
By the reason that most of all living elements worshipped them.

And it was absolutely not those idiot Titans's business to shaping that world or this world especially the world that had a ruler or rulers...

May be the others old god may contains such an unimaginable elemental power.

But C'Thum seem not hav any of that power.

C'Thun got a powerful mind power which make Eonar Patron of Life can't detect C'Thun when he was defeated in the original war.

His Job - War of Shifting Sand : Silithids have such a complex mind if C'Thun success in absolute control them...

- Corrupting Aspect : It use to have such a power of mind rot to did something like corrupt the dragon, harder with dragon aspect.

Ragnaros and the elementals were banished to the elemental plane, the Old Gods probably got sent to somewhere else, harder to reach. If archmages can summon elementals, then a truly powerful one can probably set Ragnaros free. But even then Ragnaros did not retain all of his powers.

This is partially because the Titans created the dwarves and so they probably is why they can unlock Titan seals. This is further reinforced in the Dward Campaign when a dward archmage (dont remember his name) removed the seal to an old gods prison. This turned out to be a HUGE mistake as the old god noticed the dwarves and promptly summoned one of his greatest servants. A Faceless One Starspawn, (please note that the theory in the dwarf campaign is that the Faceless ones come from N'Gah a realm where they worship the Old Gods it is my theory that the old gods created the faceless ones anyway). The Starspawn is powerful enough it destroyed an entire dwarven city with ease and began channeling a spell that would free the god allowing it to wreak havoc. So in a way Azeroth owes it's existance to the Dwarves .

Okay that's the theory of the Dwarf Campaign. On another note in the campaign it is implied that the dragons main purpose is to stop the faceless ones from overrunning the world should they come out in large numbers.
