I found out today that Maw Lore could actually be read in the beta. Now they're just static items for rep. Anyone know why this changed?
Some of the stories seemed really cool, like a night elf used as an experiment for soul forging by making her relive the burning of Teldrassil constantly to provide more power to soul forges.
Manifestation: Maw Walker
Experiment 72 Hypothesis: Maw Walker anima extraction provides more power when soul forging.
Test 1: Physical Pain
Various implements used to inflict physical pain. Subject was highly resistant to all physical methods.
Test 2: Sound
Partial success of anima extraction through constant exposure to gnomish tavern jigs. Problematic implementation. Caused several mawsworn to abandon posts resulting in subject nearly escaping.
Test 3: Forced Visualizations
Similar implementation to the torture chambers of Torghast, subject forced to relive specific moments. Breaking point: 115th run of the burning of Teldrassil.
Significant anima extraction resulting in equally significant stygia generation. Soul forge fully supplied equal to 10 times normal sources.
Transfer of Maw Walker prisoners to soul forges ordered per Warden Korrath.
