The Tauren & The Goblin #94: On the Old Gods and Black Empire

May 6th, 2020

Katie is back this week with a SHOCKING SURPRISE! Klanker has moved from Dalaran-US to Earthen Ring-US. This throws Nick off and the two talk about server transfers for a bit before resuming the show. Katie then talks about raiding and getting to 10 of 12 in Heroic Ny’alotha. Nick meanwhile has been leveling his demon hunter and working on finally getting his cloak.

Then the two talk about the Old Gods. Katie talks about how the Void Lords flung the Old Gods as masses of flesh into the universe, and how they randomly hit planets. The Titans were looking for dormant World Souls, and Sargeras found a corrupted planet that was too infested to save. He cleaved the planet in two and found the Nathrezim (Dread Lords) who told Sargeras of the threat that the Old Gods pose. Sargeras dedicated himself to fighting the Old Gods and decided to form the Burning Legion to help with that.

When talking about Sargeras cleaving the planet, Nick compares this with Sargeras stabbing Azeroth, and the duo debate just what was the purpose of Sargeras stabbing the planet, since he could easily have cleaved it earlier before he was pulled away by the Pantheon.

Back on Azeroth, the Old Gods hit the planet and find that the elemental lords are out of control. They subjugate the elements and the Black Empire is created. The Titans show up and Aman’thul rips Y’shaarj out, creating the Well of Eternity. Nick and Katie then ponder about what happens to Old Gods when they die, and even what happens to lesser Old God minions. Could we see the Mantid in Shadowlands?

Hosts

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.
