Sifreldar Village in the Storm Pekas might be the reference to Sif.
Another reference:Útgarðar -- Utgarde Keep/Pinnacle
Another possible reference to Yggdrasil is the jormungar Yggdras that you must fight in The Amphitheater of Anguish: Yggdras!. Cut off the -il on the end of Yggdrasil and it's the same word.Now it's monday... I want a comic =(
Excellent blog post Argent! Too bad you couldn't find anything for Fenrir . . . :'(
Good job argent! Love norse... Er... Well, whatever the proper term for it is... Mythology. I had an old book of legends that I need to find (Refind?), because the game keeps reminding me of one or another.It probably doesn't help that I have a guildy named Lokee. (Loki, as you may expect, was taken. It was taken by a bank alt, simply by chance. Actually, probably to screw over rpers wanting the name. Fitting, no?)
Strangely I think there was no reference to Odin himself here, but Arthas himself may be that reference to Odin.... no?
No, there is no direct reference to Odin. Not name-based at least. Aman'Thul, the leader of the Pantheon, so to speak, is very much like him though.
O my god... my brain hurts.I used to play Stronghold Legends, and I liked to play the role of ice, which had a Norse religion. Everyone on those names I yelled WHERE TF DID I HEAR THAT BEFORE?
Huzzah! someone finally puts a list of the norse references onto wowhead, nice work Argent!Oh, and Amon Amarth do indeed rule, victorious march!
Emortee, Armageddon is a reference to, well, Armageddon from Hebrew mythology.
I really didn't think of Northrend like this until now....Just, immense.Now, I <3 Greek Mythology so pl0x I can has some? :O
