Dutch Youtuber and streamer Nobbel87 is no stranger to the spotlight when it comes to World of Warcraft. With over 300,000 subscribers on Youtube, he commands a sizeable audience for his extensive and highly regarded lore videos, and he has produced many dozens of them over the last few years.
Nobbel also answers questions he receives from his subscribers (and others who contact him on ask.fm, Twitter, or in Youtube comments) in a series of Q&A videos. Every month or so, he delivers elaborate responses to the biggest questions about the game at the time, weaving his wit and experience into video presentations that can run over an hour in length!
“The Story of the Demon Hunters” is the latest in his lore series. In each of these videos, Nobbel takes an in-depth look at an individual, or race, or storyline from Warcraft. In his most popular video to date, the 42-minute long “Story of Warcraft – Full Version [Lore]”, Nobbel has 1.6 million views (and counting). It’s one of three videos that have garnered him over a million views, along with “The Story of Warlords of Draenor – Full Version [Lore]” and “The Story of Sylvanas Windrunner – Full Version”.
He also streams plenty of gameplay. From leveling up characters in order to experience the story of WoW from different angles to soloing old raids and trying to farm rare mounts, Nobbel never seems to run out of good ideas for things to see and do in game. To supplement his knowledge of the many stories of Warcraft, about four months ago, Nobbel began playing Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. That has turned into an ongoing documentary that has 19 parts at the time of this writing.
We asked Nobbel “what motivates you?” He said:
I’ve always enjoyed telling stories and with my Warcraft lore videos, I try to show a different side of the game. When you get invested into the story, you’ll find yourself wanting to know more about the characters and the heroes and villains that set the stage for our grand adventures. From in-game voice acting, to cinematics, to grand videos like Lords of War and the upcoming Warcraft movie, I’m always exited to see what the next chapter is going to bring. I love being able to share that passion with the viewers.
