What would it take for you to join up with the Old Gods?
The Old Gods appear all throughout World of Warcraft. They’ve been some of the most memorable bosses and have twisted the very landscape around them to be more in line with their vision for the world, and it seems like no matter what, they always have legions of devoted followers. Have you ever thought about what made all of those Twilight’s Hammer Cultists join up, or what was whispered to Neltharion to corrupt him and make him Deathwing?
I hadn’t really thought that much about it until I got the Voice of the Silent Star cloak from defeating Scalecommander Sarkareth in Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible. It’s a fairly unique cloak because it can “borrow” some of your allies’ power for a little while, which was chaotic and powerful enough for me to want to use it based on that alone. But I soon figured out that there was an added bonus — I started receiving mysterious whispers.
I will elevate you above all others. It’s what you deserve.
I alone see your struggle. I alone hear your pain.
They cannot hear me. Is that not proof enough of your significance?
You aren’t like the others. You are… special.
Focus on my voice. Let the rest melt away…
My chosen. My champion.
So much noise… let silence set you on the path to glory.
Having an item whisper spooky things to me already catapults that item into the top tier of items, but the actual whispers themselves are what seal the deal. Sometimes playing as a tank you just don’t get the recognition that you feel like you do and it’s just nice to be appreciated, y’know? Once I saw how encouraging these whispers could be, I knew that I would throw my lot in with the Old Gods the first chance I got. Well, aside from all of those other times I threw my lot in with them and borrowed a bit of their power.
So how about you, how close are you to falling to the whispers of the Old Gods? What would it take for you to forsake the path of life and doom existence to the infinite blackness of the universe between the stars? Money? Power? A really nice hat?
Or are you prepared to be the lone beacon of light standing against the inevitable darkness at the end of all things?
