A WotLK preview hidden in the 2.4 Patch Files: The Tuskarr


This is the shot Verth sent us
We've already speculated a bit on whether Blizzard's been slipping some early WotLK stuff into the 2.4 patch files with Holyform, but World of Raids and a tipster of ours by the name of Verth have dug up something that's definitely straight out of Northrend: a Tuskarr Male.

What we know so far about the Tuskarr is that they'll be based primarily in the Borean Tundra and be fighting the Naga with help from Garrosh Hellscream, who will be overseeing the Horde settlement of Warsong Hold there. What we don't know is why we got a model in game so soon. Could it be that we'll start seeing preparations in-game for the voyage to Northrend soon? Maybe we'll see a Tuskarr Ambassador in Thrall's chambers. Either way, it's always nice to get a bit more new expansion news, and we'll be on the lookout to see if this guy's smiling face shows up soon.
