Allied Race Intro Text - Highmountain Tauren
Patch 7.3.5 adds some dialogue lines for the Highmountain Tauren Allied Race intro.

Summoned to the Embassy
Players are summoned to the embassy to choose between the Highmountain Tauren and Nightborne as the first Allied Race to pursue.

Nathanos Blightcaller - Meet me outside Grommash Hold. Keep this quiet... or the consequences will be swift and severe.

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - You have observed our operations in Silithus. Clearly the Alliance is doing everything in its power to undermine our efforts.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - The Horde's selfless leadership in the war against the Legion has left our ranks depleted. Our enemies slaver at the thought of stealing what is ours. We will not let them.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - I've authorized the building of an embassy in Orgrimmar. From it, we will win others to our cause. Meet me there at once.

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - Leaders of the Horde, I summoned you here--along with one of our greatest champions--because our enemies are gathering their strength.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - The Alliance is scouring the far corners of Azeroth in search of every advantage against us. We must do the same.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - War is coming. We need fresh blood added to the ranks of the Horde. What say you?
Baine Bloodhoof - Warchief, the tauren of Highmountain fought boldly alongside us in our campaign against the Burning Legion, just as our ancestors did long ago.
Baine Bloodhoof - I have invited their leaders to a great feast in Mulgore. This could be a chance to bring them to our side.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - A simple people, but strong. They would be a boon on the battlefield.
Lady Liadrin -I too have a suggestion, Warchief. The sin'dorei have maintained diplomatic ties with the nightborne since we helped liberate Suramar from the Legion.
Lady Liadrin -The regent lord and I agree that our kingdoms have much in common. We believe the nightborne would make valuable allies.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - Even without the Nightwell, Suramar holds vast arcane resources. A most useful arrow added to my quiver.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - Each option would have its uses. I believe (player) knows both these peoples. Which potential ally do you suggest we pursue first?

Baine Bloodhoof - It shall be so, Warchief.

Mayla Highmountain - Your invitation was most kind, Baine. It is time for our two peoples to renew our bonds of kinship.
Baine Bloodhoof - It is of kinship that I wish to speak. I hope that--
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - I should never... have left... the mountain...
Mayla Highmountain - Ebonhorn! What dark force grips you?
Baine Bloodhoof - I know this power all too well. Champion! We need your help!
Mayla Highmountain - I must get Ebonhorn back to Highmountain at once!
Baine Bloodhoof - Until we discover what's behind this attack, Mulgore will never be safe. I will come with you, Mayla. Let us face this darkness together.

Mayla Highmountain - I understand, my friend. Baine, I must get Ebonhorn back to Highmountain.
Baine Bloodhoof - Very well. We will drive this Old God filth from Thunder Bluff.
Baine Bloodhoof - Your masters will not take my city, monster!
Baine Bloodhoof - We will drive your shadow from Mulgore!
Baine Bloodhoof - Hahahaha! It feels good to swing my mace again!
Baine Bloodhoof - Thunder Bluff will be free of you!
Baine Bloodhoof - Go back to the void that spawned you!
Baine Bloodhoof - Go to Highmountain and aid Mayla, champion. I will join you soon.
Baine Bloodhoof - I must be certain the Old Gods' minions are driven from Mulgore.

Saving Spiritwalker Ebonhorn

Mayla Highmountain - Ebonhorn is not well. We must find a way to bring him back from the brink. Speak with Spiritwalker Graysky. I believe he can help.
Mayla Highmountain - I will remain here while Graysky aids you. Pray that restoring the wards will mend Ebonhorn's mind.

Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - The whispers... they have stopped. Thank you, champion, Graysky.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - My mind is my own again. Return to Thunder Totem, champion. Let us gather strength for what is to come.

Baine Bloodhoof - Champion! Graysky told me of your courage.

Uul'gyneth Backstory

Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Follow me, champion.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Long ago, the Old Gods sought to lay claim to Highmountain. Their campaign was led by a terrible general... Uul'gyneth the Darkness.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Huln gathered heroes from among the tribes to stand together. They fought against Uul'gyneth's servants, the Necrodark... but the forces of shadow were too great to overcome.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - So Huln devised another plan. Wards were placed to lock away the Old Gods' influence. Though the general survived, Uul'gyneth's essence was trapped.
Mayla Highmountain - So the Necrodark have been lurking in the shadows, waiting to call forth their master.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Indeed. And when I left the mountain to visit Mulgore, the wards weakened just enough to let the Darkness take hold.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - The last ward was placed at Highmountain Summit. That is where we must go. Just as Huln stood with his allies, so we must band together.

Uul'gyneth - Yes... come! Your strength will become ours, child of darkness!
Baine Bloodhoof - Child of... What does he mean?
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - I... cannot say. Mayla, you and I must go on ahead. Baine, you and our champion gather the others and meet us at the summit.

Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Together, we will banish your darkness!
Uul'gyneth - You will serve us, dragon, just as Neltharion did! Your kind always bends to the whispers.
Mayla Highmountain - I cannot let the Darkness possess my father's body!
Baine Bloodhoof - Mayla! We must stand together!
Uul'gyneth - Serve your true masters, drogbar! Your defiance means death!
Uul'gyneth - The Skyhorn shall serve my masters! You will become the shadow that darkens the skies!
Uul'gyneth - The Legion was nothing compared to our power! Surrender!
Uul'gyneth - You have failed! The Darkness rises... and Highmountain shall fall!
Uul'gyneth - The wards have weakened! He will be ours!

Uul'gyneth Defeated

Baine Bloodhoof - I did not realize that I had invited a dragon to feast with us at Thunder Bluff. Had I known, I might have set a bigger table!
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - Only Mayla and our champion knew my secret before. Now I entrust it to you as well, chieftain.
Baine Bloodhoof - I see no reason for anyone else to know, spiritwalker. Let it be a matter kept... between friends.
Mayla Highmountain - Today was very nearly a dark day for Azeroth.
Mayla Highmountain - Had Uul'gyneth's plan succeeded, we all would have been made into servants of the Old Gods... including Ebonhorn.
Spiritwalker Ebonhorn - I shudder at the thought, Mayla. Without the swift action of Baine and this champion, all would have been lost.
Mayla Highmountain - Baine Bloodhoof, you have demonstrated courage, honor, and loyalty. I believe it is time for your people and mine to renew our bonds of kinship.
Mayla Highmountain - If you will have us, the tauren of Highmountain would be proud to join your Horde.
Baine Bloodhoof - The Horde will be honored to welcome you! Let us travel to Orgrimmar and share the good news with our Warchief.

Mayla Highmountain - Warchief, the strength and courage of the Horde has been demonstrated by Baine Bloodhoof, as well as your champion.
Mayla Highmountain - From this day forth, Highmountain vows to stand with you against all foes.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - I accept your oath of loyalty. The Horde offers its protection... and expects your obedience.
Baine Bloodhoof - For the Horde!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner - For the Horde!
Mayla Highmountain - For the Horde!

Mayla Highmountain - Today you begin a new journey. You will be our voice in the lands beyond the mountain.
Mayla Highmountain - Go to Orgrimmar. Meet our new allies and learn what it is they care about... what they fight for.
Mayla Highmountain - Stay true to who you are. And should you ever miss your home, know that Highmountain is here for you. Always.

It has been an honor. But the time has come for me to adventure elsewhere within Azeroth, and tackle a different challenge... Cards! I'll see you soon, Hearthstone fans!

If your class can equip the respective weapon, you'll have a chance of earning it from Agrammar and Argus respectively. It doesn't matter what your loot specialization or active class specialization is at the time.

This Week in WoW History
We're taking a look back at old MMO-Champion posts and World of Warcraft news that occurred during this time in previous years.

Cataclysm Live
The third expansion of WoW hit the live servers in 2010, bringing new raids, dungeons, zones, professions, and races to the game. The new raids were Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, Throne of the Four Winds, along with Baradin Hold, which was the raid which had a chance at rewarding players with some PvP loot as well. This expansion brought five leveling zones, and two introductory zones for the new races. PvP lovers got to enjoy Tol Barad, the new outdoor PvP zone, along with two new battlegrounds, Twin Peaks, and Battle for Gilneas.

Heroic Dragon Soul
The race is on! With the opening of Heroic Dragon Soul, guilds set off to kill Deathwing and claim the World 1st title. However, the introduction of LFR brought an unforeseen exploitable bug which some guilds took advantage of. A few of the top guilds, most notably Paragon, were banned for exploiting this buff preventing them from progressing Heroic until their suspension was over.

Cinder Kitten
In 2012 the newest addition to the Pet Store was the Cinder Kitten. As always, during the holiday season Blizzard donated 100% of the adoption fee to the American Red to help with the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. This battle pet has Rare quality stats and is part of the Elemental family.

Black Market Auction House Items
Patch 5.1 brought a few new items to the BMAH, with the addition of the Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King, which turned the wearer into Sig Nicious on use. For players who missed out on their Ulduar and Naxxramas Glory achievements, the Reins of the Plagued Proto-Drake and Reins of the Rusted-Proto Drake were added as well.

Warcraft Movie Cast
Legendary sent out two tweets in 2013, revealing the cast and production date of the new Warcraft movie. Roles were not announced quite yet, but Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky would star in the new movie. Production was scheduled to begin in Vancouver, during January 2014.

Alliance Chopper
Warlords of Draenor brought the newest gold-sink mount, with the addition of the Alliance Chopper. This mount is purchasable in Stormwind for 100,000 gold. The community had mixed reactions to this addition, especially because of its very high price, compared to other mounts.

American Red Cross Bundle
In 2014, Argi the Inter-goat-lactic pet and the Grinning Reaver mounts were added to the Blizzard Store. All proceeds from pet purchases directly benefited the American Red Cross to help with Ebola relief efforts in Africa. The pet and mount was also sold in a bundle, with discounted price, with the full price of the pet still going to charity.

Micro Holidays
Call of the Scarab and Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl were discovered on the PTR, along with the announcement of many other Micro-Holidays. These new events only lasted a short time, and celebrate small things we love in the game. Currently there are eight micro-holidays in the game, such as the Hatching of the Hippogryphs, Un’goro Madness, Volunteer Guard Day, and the Thousand Boat Bash.

Ronda Rousey and Vin Diesel are WoW Friends
During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Ronda talked a little about her adventures in WoW. While working on the production of Fast 7, she became friends with Vin Diesel and they played WoW together as a Druid and a Hunter.
