Finally some love for the cuddly bears! I have been fascinated with them since the start of WoW, primarily since all my mains are Night Elfs, and have had many quests centered around them. Even though I've never gone the full mile and grind to exalted on any of my chars, I think I am revered with Timbermaw Hold on my Druid and Hunter, and I have the Furbolg Rod on ALL my characters. What thing do I particularly love about them though? I couldn't say, I just love everything about them. I mean, what's not to love? Furry-walking-talking-man-bears-occasionaly-with-shovels-who-live-in-caves? They are without a doubt my favourite NPC race. P.S I'm all for the big lore entry! :D
Still have my Dartol's Rod of Transformation ....
I have to say while the Furblogs have some very interesting lore, I think there is another race with alot of untapped potential and mystery. A history so mysterious it could even possibly be a future content update! What strange race am I talk about? That race that's not even native to Azeroth at all...Worgen.What are the orgins? What were they before they were summoned to Azeroth? Where is their home? Why can their dimension connect to the plane that Azeroth shadows? What actually happened to Argul? Are there any other mystical object's like the scythe? So many questions! So much potential for a great content patch!Also what would a worgen furblog offspring look like?
I agreee about the Worgen's, such easy lore to write about since they've been in game forever and have never had anything develloped about them. Arugal wasn't at anyone's service in Shadowfang Keep, he only later was raised as a servant of the Lich King. Even there only kill the Shade of Arugal, wich means he is probably still alive somewhere. I love that they took such an old boss to remake an appearance and I hope he does reappear later on, hell make him a boss in Icecrown if needs be and devellop some more lore around him.
I have to say, lore is one of the bigger reasons I've stayed long after the friends who introduced me to WoW left for Warhammer Online. whether it's just interesting history (Wolvar > Gorlocs imo) or game-shaping sagas (I've really come to like the Dragonflights and the Titans, and I may find myself going insane delving into Lovecraft's books soon enough after looking up the Old Gods), it really does contribute to the experience.
the worgen's capital city would be SFK
Alliance players listen up! This is how to turn into a Furbolg whenever you want to 100% to the rules!First off, go to Ashenvale. Make your way to Astranaar. Somewhere, I think in the inn, there will be a Night Elf Female giving out a quest, called Raene's Cleansing. It is a quest chain. Continue the chain until you get an item called "Dartol's Rod of Transformation". At this point, do not I repeat DO NOT CONTINUE THE QUEST CHAIN! If you complete it, you will never be able to change into a Furbolg ever again. Dartol's Rod of Transformation can be used to turn into a Furbolg with a two minute cooldown. The buff duration is five minutes. If you receive damage the buff is cancelled.I don't know if The Horde can do this, but if they can't ; HAHA! Re-roll, IMO. This is one of the many vast reasons that The Alliance rule!
Keep it up with the big lore posts, I love it!Oh, and yes.......thongs. I vividly remember the first time I saw the furbolgs' attire from the rear.Specifically the part when my boyfriend heard me yell, "Oh my god, the bear-men are wearing butt-floss and feathers!"He was confused.
BLizzard doesnt consider lore when making video games silly!
Worgen. Of all the hostile races, they seem to be the fewest in number, and although we know the basics of how they got to Azeroth...that's it.Where is the Scuthe of Elune? Are there other artifacts that can do the same thing? Worgen are not demons, and yet can be summoned; are there other races for which this is true? Are there non-hostile Worgen, somewhere?
