The Tauren & The Goblin #95: On N’Zoth

May 20th, 2020

Nick and Katie are here to talk about all things N’Zoth! But first, Katie talks about playing with her brother who doesn’t pay attention to quest text. Nick talks about finally getting his cloak, and then goes on a rant about being a Tauren and having helms with horns.

They start talking about N’Zoth, but Nick brings up that we first learned about N’Zoth at the Blizzcon Lore Panel in 2010. He then brings up how we first saw art for N’Zoth on a Hearthstone card, and how this is unusual that the character was so hidden for so long.

Then they talk about N’Zoth’s history after the fall of the Black Empire, starting with his recruitment of Deathwing and Azshara. They discuss how N’Zoth reached out to Deathwing because he was down in the earth and easily reached. They talk about how N’Zoth controlled a fish to communicate with Azshara and how he was trapped so he accepted her counter-offer. They also talk about N’Zoth recruiting the Elemental Lords and complain about Neptulon’s sudden anti-climactic reappearance in Legion, and how these four bosses together formed the basis for much of the conflict in Legion. They also praise the Vash’jir zone.

They speculate that N’Zoth plays at being the weakest Old God but that doesn’t mean that he’s weak at all. They also discuss the theory that N’Zoth is tracking who defeats his minions to know who he needs to corrupt and recruit. They very quickly run through the BfA story. They talk about the various ways Blizzard could bring N’Zoth back if they so choose.

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.
