Blizzard released details of the Tuskarr race in this Wrath of the Lich King preview.
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 taunka and local murlocs.
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.
