The Tuskarr page recently unveiled has been stealthly modified.
“Despite the absence of any records documenting the tuskarr’s past, many significant facts have recently come to light.
The tuskarr are a kind-natured nomadic race that roams the southern coastlines of Northrend, guided by the carved cyclopean statues that mark their seasonal fishing routes. The tuskarr’s tribal affiliation is evidenced by the sigils inscribed on their tusks, and although they are a peaceful race, they are constantly beset by the Kvaldir and an arctic race of murloc-like creatures known as the Gorloc.
Yet even their enemies marvel at the tuskarr’s prowess and fearlessness in catching some of the most dangerous creatures in Northrend’s frigid waters, including whales and giant squid. Not even the unnamed leviathans that lurk in the ocean’s depths are beyond the tuskarr’s reach.
The tuskarr have seen their share of difficult times, but with the Horde’s recent arrival they have found a new ally in the ongoing struggle against the hostile forces of Northrend.”
Now, the “Kvaldir” could very well be a Taunka faction. But judging from the name, a fan (Drazhor) says, would say a Vrykul faction is more likely – purely based on the fact that the word sounds more viking like. After some searching Drakzhor believes he found a translation of the words. It comes from the icelandic word Kvaldi (kvelja, kvalið) and means “to afflict torment”. Or something along those lines.
Interesting that we seem to have a new breed of Murlocs on our hands. I hope they expand on the known murloc lore with this addition.
Thanks for the heads up, Drakzhor of Deathwing (EU).
