The Tauren & The Goblin #121: On the Necrolord Covenant Campaign
Katie returns to go deep on the Necrolord campaign. There are too many people with K, apostrophe, and T in their name!...
SPOILERS FOR THE NIGHT FAE CAMPAIGN AHEAD!
Katie couldn’t be here this episode so Nick is joined by Spazz Wesson and Kurabara to talk about the Night Fae campaign. First, Spazz talks about what he’s been up to in game getting through three of the four Covenants. Kurabara meanwhile has been raiding Castle Nathria.
After some comparison with the Kyrian campaign, they get into talking about the Night Fae campaign. They jump through the first two chapters as that is common for everyone, as that is when we meet Ve’nari and free Baine from Torghast. After that, the campaigns differ. In chapter three, Shandris Feathermoon helps us to search for Tyrande. We work through the Maw and eventually encounter her, but she opts to stay in Torghast fighting the Jailer’s forces. We also help get some souls from Teldrassil out of the Maw.
In chapter four, we find a mask of Bwonsamdi and meet up with him, as he is concerned about loa disappearing in Ardenweald. After searching through some Spriggan dens, we discover Muehzala’s forces are encroaching. He has two loa working with him, and we push them back into De Other Side. We kill one of the loa, and that leaves Muehzala and Hakkar to be bosses in the dungeon. Nick has at least managed to play De Other Side, and talks about how Muehzala drops some significant lore about what he is responsible for.
In chapter five, we meet the Night Warrior Theonax and his husband Quedarin who were Night Warriors on a different planet. They became Night Warriors to help defeat the Legion on their planet, but despite trying to share it, they were consumed by it.
In chapter six, Aralon helps us fight off some Drust. We go and visit Ulfar the Thornspeaker in Drustvar, who sends us back to Ardenweald to commune with his teacher. Aralon disappears.
In chapter seven, we work with Huln Hightmountain (to Nick’s delight!) to search for other Night Warriors to help save Tyrande.
In chapter eight, we help Bwonsamdi to interroate Muehzala. Several loa have wound up in the Maw since they died in Battle for Azeroth, and we go and rescue Ashamane, Hireek, and Shadra from the Maw. We do so with the aid of Vol’jin. The chapter ends with Bwonsamdi and the Winter Queen interacting in an amusing fashion.
In the final chapter, the Drust return. We learn who dies in the campaign story and work with the Kyrian, who arrived to help with the Drust.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
Katie is a long time gamer who has fallen in love with multiple genres. She started young by playing Nintendo 64, Spyro, and Blizzard games such as Warcraft II with family, then eventually moved into playing games in both my leisure time and as a occupation. She loves being immersed in different universes and exploring the characters that live in them, as well as just playing games for a good time.

Grimoire of the Shadowlands wasn't quite what we expected, but we still can start digging into the lore it contains.
