The Tauren & The Goblin #56: On Zuldazar

November 22nd, 2018

Warning: This episode contains spoilers for the Zuldazar zone.

Katie and Nick are back and now that Katie has dinged 120 on Klanker, they can finally talk more about the Horde story. This week, they talk about the story of Zuldazar, picking up where the Horde intro quests left off But first they get into a tangent about the Loa and Nazmir and the fate of Torga.

Zuldazar is the tale of the Zanchuli council and their coup against Rastakhan to take over the Zandalari trolls. You start out amicable with the Council, going so far as to do some of their work for them, but soon enough things turn dour, and it culminates with Yazma consuming Shadra’s essence (similar to how the Drakkari trolls consumed their Loa in Zul’Drak.) This leads to an effort to stop the Council, but Zul backstabs Rastakhan and almost succeeds in his coup. Nick compares the attack on Rastakhan to Vol’jin’s attempted assassination in Mists of Pandaria. We seek out Rezan and Bwon’samdi to resurrect Rastakhan, and in doing so, we see that Rezan’s fate is foreshadowed. Yazma leads the council in an assault on Atal’Dazar, and Rezan goes to stop them, but winds up walking into a trap and is killed. He is ressurected as one of the bosses in the Atal’Dazar dungeon, which culminates in us finally killing Yazma, although Zul and the Zanchuli council remain a threat at large.

Katie also mentions her adoration for Loti and Raal, a married couple who are also priests for two different Loa in Zuldazar. Nick and Katie look at Loti and Raal’s marriage. They also talk about Gonk and Pa’ku as loa. They talk briefly about some of the dinosaur breeding quests in the area, including the one’s which involve Goblin technology. They also talk a little about Hemet Nesingwary’s appearance in the zone and whether he is a good character or not.
