World of Warcraft is usually a game characterized by bigger than life characters. Sargeras, Velen, Sylvanas’the list of its heroes and villains goes on and on. But to get a game about players killing gods and becoming heroes of Azeroth, Warcraft’s community has surprisingly handful of notable players-turned-turned heroes as well as less villains. Except 1. His name is Angwe, and in 2005 he was World of Warcraft’s ganking god.
For those who travel to Menethil Harbor nowadays, you’ll obtain the once-thriving port city half-submerged into the sea. But back in 2005, Menethil Harbor was submerged in a thing considerably a lot more tragic: the endless tears of countless players of the Alliance as they fell victim towards the Terror of Menethil, an orc rogue named Angwe (pronounced like Elmer Fudd saying “angry”). For four months for the duration of that year, Angwe setup camp in Menethil and slaughtered hundreds of players for eight hours every goddamn day. Applying stealth, he could slip previous the guards undetected when players waited for the boats that would whisk them across the sea to Kalimdor. Then he would strike.
Getting one of the only approaches to move amongst Kalimdor and Azeroth, Menethil Harbor was a bottleneck that practically every player had to pass via at the very least after. And after they did, Angwe could be waiting. Even whole guilds rallied to bring him down. It was a ceaseless bloodbath which has develop into among Warcraft’s few player-made legends.
“I just like getting Freddy Krueger,” Angwe tells me using a sinister laugh. “There had been a great deal of occasions that someone will be waiting for the boat, and they’d be like, good, Angwe is not here. They’d get on the boat, and I’d get on with them but I’d use Stealth so I was invisible. About halfway by way of the boat ride I’d kill them and after that just jump off and swim back. I loved producing men and women scared, producing them watch their back the entire time. I love becoming the bogeyman.”
