While I typically enjoy seeing these "X character found in Shadowlands" due to most of them being small minor NPCs that are easily miss-able, and therefore I might not otherwise have seen them, showing off a character who, as part of the night fae campaign, is really story-important is just a bad move on your part, Wowhead.There's a reason they refer to him as "the horned hunter" and don't give off any clues as to his identity until he shows up as part of the quest, and that moment in of itself is supposed to be this "holy sh** its him" moment - I remember saying "osh**!" out loud in /say when I saw who the horned hunter really was, and by posting such an article you're potentially ruining that surprise for newer players.While your site is invaluable, and I absolutely love your team's dedication to publishing wow news and keeping us up-to-date with the game, I urge your staff to please either remove this article, or at least mark it with a spoiler, as otherwise leaving it as-is would be irresponsible on your end.
He also has a special greeting for any Highmountain Tauren doing the quest."Those antlers... you bear the blessing of Cenarius! I am Huln Highmountain, the Horned Hunter."
He's not the only legendary figure in Legion to leave a mark in Shadowlands. Sinstone of Irmaat, the Tol'vir creator of The Fists of the Heavens Monk artifact, can be found.
It's rather unfortunate that, as a Night Fae Hunter, Huln Highmountain does not have special dialogues. I even mounted Eche'ro in front of him!
I thought we saw him in Bastion near the starting area before he is changed into a blue human. Hard to find which Tauren that was now.
Anyone keeping a running tally of who all is showing up in Shadowlands in one master post rather than one-per-entry? I'm curious to see the breakdown across faction/racial lines. (Of course, knowing how Bastion works it throws a wrench in things; but still curious.)
being pretty liberal with the word found. I wouldn't say a child found the bathroom after having their hand held there. it's not an easter egg it's literally just part of the quest chain. you wouldn't say players found Kael'thas would you?
I'm one of the few people who play survival and actually have talonclaw transmogged! Was really hoping I would get some special dialogue but sadly not. Still, seeing Huln was a pleasant surprise! Was a really cool questline :)
Am glad I found this out ingame before seeing the WoWhead article. Try be more careful WoWhead. People want news but the risk of spoilers can stop people checking your news. The article title should be something like “Returning lore character found in latest Night Fae campaign part”. When I realised the Horned Hunter was Huln I was filled with joy! I want others to have that feeling too!
All this post needs is a better title "Notable legion character found in Shadowlands *spoilers*"The article is great.
Still no mention of Warbrave Oro, who just happend to die during the quest to get the Hammer of Khaz'goroth. We come across him quite early in Bastion.
