The Arakkoa

Happy Friday everyone! Also a Happy long weekend to all my Canadian friends! Don't you always feel better on a long weekend? I know I do. So I was thinking, and with that time in thought I realized I had not done any posts concerning WoW Lore in quite some time. I have been getting a lot of emails about WoD beta and some of the stories going on within it. So I figured this would be a good time for one of you to pass on some information about some questlines in the beta. Now if you don't want anything spoiled keep in mind there will be spoilers here so don't read. So here is Gamespud and his findings regarding the Arakkoa.

So I've been playing in beta and I'm in Spires of Arak atm. I'm not 100% done with it but I've already found a lot of interesting facts about the Arakkoa. So it seems there are 3 variety of Arakkoa split by their deities. There is the outcasts who we work with who worship anzu and follow the teachings of Terrok. There are the Setthek who worship seethe (the creator of the curse) who does not appear to be an old god btw.. impossible to say unrelated but we literally kill him (again) so yeah.. Then there are the adherents of Ruhkmar who worship.. well.. you guess.. and like to burn people with fiery beams of doom. 

One interesting thing I found in the zone is that the adherents did not create their tech themselves. In fact they are just using apexis tech dug up from excavations. You get to peek inside these a little bit and let me say they seem suspiciously reminiscent of Uldum. The tech seems very titanic in origin. It's hard to say if anything is really old god related as nothing directly states so but they have hinted at odd things in my opinion like "returning to the old ways". Then again its hard to say anything on the Arakkoa definitively at the moment as the whole zone is very much filled with mystery and is kind of a chase for answers. 

I love the zone as each quest is basically little tidbits to taste at as you constantly search deeper in the darkness trying to uncover these secrets. So I was mostly just reporting what I've learned from beta to you who I know is a big lore buff and was hoping to get some thoughts from you on the subject.

The Arrakoa have always been interesting to me as they seem to have the Old God connection without it being stated outright, and now with what might be a titan influence on Draenor is even more interesting. Thanks to Gamespud for the report and I look forward to hearing more from you and everyone else.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

  1. I think the Lore in general is going to be interesting in WoD. So the more the better about this alternate timeline/universe/whatever it is.
