Looking back at origins of Ahn’Qiraj, the Aqir, and the Titanforged with the launch of Ahn’Qiraj in WoW Classic
All the mats you’ll want to hoard before the gates of Ahn’Qiraj open, and what to expect when they do
Back in the day I raided in AQ 40 when it was the hot new raid and we’d just mastered writing. One of the things that was weird and cool about that raid was, C’thun (the Old God who was the big boss of the raid) would randomly whisper things like Your heart will explode or your friends will abandon you to your raid. Now, my wife Julian used to play in the same room as I did, and as a result often C’thun would whisper to her and then to me within a second or so. As a result, the whispers would get mangled together, and we’d often hear Your heart will abandon you or your friends will explode, which to our mind was both every bit as creepy and also a touch more bizarre as threats go.
Your Heart Will Abandon You sounds like a 70’s country song to me.
Anyway, this is the Queue. My new book is out, if you like weird Lovecraftian monsters making friends explode. Even if you don’t.
