It’s the time of the alt appreciation week that I introduce you some known NPC in game.
This time I have Horde characters so Lok’tar ogar my friends! 🙂
Thrall (birthname Go’el)
Atleast some of you know that Thrall is my favourite character in WoW and I’ve waited #ShamanWeek to come so I can write more about him 😛 He was also the reason Why I got my For the Alliance achie and mount so late. I chose not to kill him, and when he he promoted Garrosh as the new Leader I was more than happy to go get my mount. 🙂
Hes father was Durotan who was the chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan. He is the former Warchief of the Horde.
After Lich Kings fall increased elemental unrest news from the Shattering Thrall had step down as leader of the Horde, and he appointed Garrosh Hellscream as Warchief.
Some trivia knowledge you might not know:
- Thrall was going to be voiced by Clancy Brown in the unreleased game Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans. He is voiced by Chris Metzen (!! <3) in Warcraft III, World of Warcraft and their expansions.
- At BlizzCon 2010, Chris Metzen claimed that Thrall and his wielding of the Doomhammer was inspired by Thor.
- The Thrallmar outpost on the Hellfire Peninsula in Outland is named after the Warchief. It is the Horde’s staging area to recolonize the orcs’ former native planet. Although few individuals will remember their planet before it exploded (Drek’Thar, for example, told the Mok’Nathal Rexxar that he fought alongside other Mok’Nathal on Draenor), all orcs will be shocked to see the state in which it lies now.
One of my favourite factions is Frostwolf Clan, I remember farming the reputation on my Warlock to get the so awesome Horn of the Frostwolf Howler mount (which was my goal right after I learned I can get mounts and I can get WOLF mounts! <3)
Drek’Thar is the leader of the Frostwolf Clan, he is elite boss located in Frostwolf Keep in Alterac Valley. He also was Thrall’s tutor many years ago.
He’s been blind since birth, he had to prove his worth during the Horde’s dark period. He was also one of the first shaman.
“Stormpike filth! In my keep?! Slay them all!” – Drek’Thar
She is a level 62 quest giver located in Elder Rise in the tauren city of Thunder Bluff.
She is also leader of the Grimtotem Clan.
Magatha was the chief rival to High Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof for the leadership of all Tauren. After engineering Cairne’s death and briefly taking control of Thunder Bluff, Magatha and her Grimtotem were defeated by Cairne’s son’s,Baine, army. She and everyone who chose to remain with her were exiled by the new High Chieftain Baine.
Today started whole new week of alt appreciation over at World of Lae. It’s Shaman week, my shaman has been with me since Wrath of the Lich King. Doing heroics back then as a resto shaman you were able to keep people alive with chain heal spam 😛 I liked that, but the change of the healing now is better. You can actually do more than hit one button 😀
I’ve always wanted a shaman (just because of the Ghost Wolf travel form :D), but leveling in classic and bc was total pain as resto (Yes she is only been Resto) so I gave up that idea, but in Wrath i put myself together and leveled one. I have now even tried playing as Elemental, not much of a fan. I like healing (as you may have noticed that almost all my hybrid classes are healer specced :D)
My Shaman is my “go to” class when I’m bored to my Druid and I don’t feel like leveling anything else. Sadly she is sitting at ilvl 493 at the moment, but on this week I’ll try to run more LFR with her to get hear gear up 🙂
I wish that there would be more choices with Mail transmog tho, finding something pretty and fitting is bit hard sometimes. But I love the shaman tier sets, they look down to earth and you can really see that it’s for Shamans.
