This week Nick and Katie discuss the plot of the Stormheim zone and the history behind it. But first, Katie shares her thoughts on the Legion expansion, and Nick talks about loving his trinket that turns him into a Vrykul. Nick is also disappointed that the Frostwolf gear from Frostfire is leather since his rogue can’t tame Frostwolves but his mail-wearing hunter can. But onto Stormheim, the duo discusses the merits of starting the zone after taking a portal from the Broken Isles to Durotar just to travel back to the Broken Isles.

Then they go into the history of Sylvanas and her battle against Greymane throughout the zone. Her relationship to Eyir and the Val’kyr is brought up. Greymane’s merits as a ruler are questioned. They recap the history of Sylvanas and the Forsaken, and then go into the history between Helya in Helheim and Odin in the Halls of Valor. Then they talk about Havi and his secret identity. There’s also a brief discussion about class halls and followers, and then some complaints about how geographic scaling is not accurate in WoW. Katie loves Storm Dragons. Finally, they list their favorite fun references in Stormheim, including Sir Finley Mrrgglton. All this and more on the second episode of The Tauren & the Goblin!

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.
