It all started because I wanted to fly.
Flying in Draenor has been tucked away behind the Draenor Pathfinder meta achievement. Since I’d torn through the content so quickly, things like the Loremaster component had been left quite unfinished. So Deathrokk started questing through Nagrand to check that box on the meta achievement.
I’d heard about, and seen clips of, The Cutscene. I’d actually thought it happened in Spires of Arak. Lo and behold, there it was at the end of Nagrand. We all know that Thrall kills Garrosh Hellscream, but what I didn’t know is what led up to it. Turns out, it’s part of the quest “And Justice for Thrall“. You run the quest, fight Garrosh, and then Thrall steps in to bat cleanup on Garry.
And he cleans up big time.
What’s that? You didn’t know any of this. Uh, okay… [SPOILERS]?
Something happened during that fight. Like I said, you start the encounter by throwing down with Garrosh. He cheats, you’re stunned, and then Thrall kill-steals. A dick move, but let’s be honest here – Thrall can be a bit of a dick. Double so for me because I was actually winning that fight. Garrosh was down to 50% when he stunned me. I was at maybe 98% health. Thrall stole my kill, and as you can see in the video Garrosh dropped Gorehowl.
I saw it in the video. And I wanted that axe.
Since I couldn’t pry it from Garrosh’s cold, dead, electrocuted hands I had to go with Plan B – back to Karazhan. Back to dealing with that pain in the ass chess game. All for a shot at Prince Malchezaar, who is keeping my axe warm for me. Well he didn’t drop Gorehowl this time, but since I’ve got everything else except for one Apexis daily that I need to wait for, I’ll take my time and wipe out Kara every chance I get until Gorehowl is mine.
