Storm Peaks

Wrath of the Lich King has brought hundreds of exciting new quest lines, done in more detail than ever before. Not just in lore, but in the immersion of the player in the quest.  The days of retrieving or slaughtering X number of Y are not gone, but they have certainly evolved.

My Shaman, Psionic (Nazjatar), has been level 80 for a couple weeks now. In my own journeys I have been completing the Quest achievements in Northrend and have come across several chains that are really cutting-edge.  My favorite so far was Storm Peaks, in the chain that leads to the dailies for Sons of Hodir.

There are around 20-25 quests in the chain, beginning with simple requests from Lok’lira the Crone, inside a cave.  She transforms you to appear as a Hyldnir, an ancient race of female (except for the King) warriors.  Through your efforts an alliance forms between the Hyldnir and the Sons of Hodir.  Certain aspects of the world change depending on where you are in the quest line, so it truly feels as if you guide the outcome of the truce.  And the ending… magnificent.  I won’t spoil it for you, go find out for yourself!

The starting quest is They Took Our Men!
