The long anticipated Highmountain episode has finally arrived. Nick and Katie start by briefly discussing Patch 7.1 and Katie’s journey into the Druid Class Hall on her Tauren alt. Stijn sends in an email about Marcus and the Steamy Romance novel, and Nick and Katie talk about his various romances and how Blizzard keeps playing with that character, and wonder where it can go from here. Nick talks about his impressions of Thunder Totem, and how he went from not being impressed by the concept art to loving the structure, and how it feels like what Thunder Bluff should have been.

The story of Highmountain starts in the Highmountain – A Mountain Divided comic which introduced Mayla, the aspriring Chieftan, and Dargrul, the aggressive villain. Dargrul seizes the Hammer of Khazgoroth and kills Mayla’s father, leaving her in charge, and she must work with the Outsider (they player) to unite the Rivermane, Skyhorn, and Bloodtotem tribes. Ultimately, she takes her rightful place as Chieftan, and the Hammer is reclaimed.

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.
