[Hi! Meznir here – Telwyn’s hubby. Today I’m doing a guest post about WoW. Telwyn quit the game a few years ago as he hated the direction the game was going, but I’ve been carrying on without him. We had the idea of me occasionally posting about WoW so that the blog still covers that game.]
In Part 1 I started on my mission to find out what happened to Garrosh in The Burning Crusade (because woe betide Alliance players should be told the main story in WoW!), spent a good while doing Prerequisite quests and catching up with Lantresor of the Blade.
But finally I got the quest chain I was looking for: A Visit With the Greatmother
I went to chat to Greatmother Geyah (sat next to Thrall!), who told me about raising orphaned Orcs (including Garrosh) after the last time the Dark Portal was opened. She also implied that Blackhand (a boss that we’ve just killed in Warlords raid Blackrock Foundry) had sick Orcs killed, to strengthen his pack.
She tells me that Garrosh could be a strong leader of the Mag’har, but that he is overcome with fear: That if he let himself go, his rage would consume him and all near to him (Well she got that right! For those who don’t know – he goes insane in Mists of Pandaria and ends up as the end boss of the expansion, with even the Horde coming together with the Alliance to stop him). She tells me though that she can’t pass on to the spirit world until he has found his heart. She decides that I should expand my mind so that I can commune with the ancestors (in particular, Mother Kashur – who was the clan mother in the time of Garad – Durotan’s father) – by collecting herbs from various zones in Outlands, to make a potion.
Back in Garadar, Greatmother Geyah creates the tincture and makes me drink it, before sending me off to the Ancestral Grounds to speak to Mother Kashur’s spirit.
To be continued…
