    why is this even being debated? blizzard just did whatever they wanted and thought nobody would care about the small details, thats all there is to it.

    Couldn't it simply be one of those things where since no one ever really left the Tuskar villages, and when one did he never came back (Enjoyed life outside of the village, eaten by animals, etc) that they just ASSUMED this happened?

    You don't even know how much Blizz cares about the details in MoP, to the point they created new Horde buildings just for Pandaria alone.

    As others said, can be a placeholder, or an explanation will be given. It's not uncommon to adapt to a different climate.

    Maybe that was just a piece of superstition, passed down over generations to keep the Tuskarr in Northrend.


    Or maybe who cares?

    I lived in Minnesota once. I might have thought I would have died there during the winter until I went through one and didn't.

    Polar bears are cold climate animals as well. The global warming trend has affected them greatly. So polar bears are interbreeding with other bears to produce offspring that can survive in warmer climates. Reports of polar/grizzly crosses are on the rise. I believe the Tuskarr should be able to adapt as well. Yes, I know I am comparing something real, to something in video games, but isn't everything in a video game some bastard hybrid of what we know and what we wish?

    It was a tiny detail that was overlooked, that's all there is to it. I'm not gonna blame blizzard for forgetting something as stupid as that.
    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    Humans die after being out of their home for a few days.

    There. I said it. Now it's true. I hope no one had any plans.

    The Jig is Up is what you are referring to and it's not really lore in my opinion. It's one NPC, and only one, saying about how Tuskarr being sold and used as slaves die a few days after they have been taken. Also this is said by Human Pirate, Annie Bonn. So this should be taken with a huge amount of salt. Or just the simple fact that she wants to continue to get you on her side so she can become queen pirate of the Northsea Freebooters.

    With the more ample amounts of Tuskarr in different climates that her barely memorable statement is bred more in ignorance than fact.

    Well, a slave isn't what one would call best prepared for extreme situations.

    Blizzard has said many times that they adapt the lore to fit the gameplay, not the other way around.

    It's one tiny, insignificant, overlooked detail about a race that has nearly no importance in the lore at all, that was included in some random quest without any actual background. This is the kind of thing that they can and will rectify or expand upon without any kind of trouble, because of how small of a detail it was. People are debating it because it's a forum about WoW and that's what we do. The fact that you're so upset at something so minor is baffling.

    Like other people have said, there could be tons of reasons they could give for a tuskarr being there. It could be a subspecies, the aforementioned quest NPC could be wrong/lying, it could be a placeholder, etc.

    Uh, when have we ever killed an Old God? They're all still alive, C'thun being the only possible exception. We're not really sure what happened to him.
