???

What has mountain giants to do with old gods??? What mission?


I think the Watchers are Titans. Loken was the watcher of Wisdom and im pretty sure he is referred as a Titan many times.

Mimiron probably just got a very heavy steam warrior suit x1000 + titan tech and has replaced many of his orginal body parts.

They are NOT titans. 1. They are to small 2. They refer to the titans as "the creators" 3. They are made of stone. And that aren't even all points that speak against the fact that they could be titans

These guys:

We see them at Molten Core, allied with the servants of the Old Gods, and we see them at Outland.

The question is: Are they elemental-related, or titanic creations?

The other Giants are these ones:

Who I'm sure are Titan-created.

I always thought Princess Theradras resembled a mountain giant more than an earth elemental, the fact her part of Mara is crawling with them adds something to the theory.

Mountains Giants were one of the first creatures to be listed as one of the Titans creations and protectors of Azeroth, same goes for Sea Giants.

They┬┤re doing a terrible job at it but still...

I think Mountain Giants aren't titan related.

Just go mention any Mountain Giant sided with any titan-related thing.

That and the fact they can be found in Outland makes me believe they're something more elemental related.

Fazruk in Arathi Highlands. The Mountain Giants guarding Uldum. The Mountain Giants fighting with the Iron Dwarves.

When it comes to Outland, those are just a different type of giant, one forged through different methods but not related in any way to the Azeroth ones.

Are you sure those are titan created? (Sorry if misinterpretated, the previous post, my fault)

Not the same as allied >_<.

And, actually, there are mountain giants at Outland, and I'm not speaking about the Colossus, those with crystals.

All the Colossus in Outland are creation of Pathaleon, it's pretty blatantly said over and over of them.

The giants you speak of are earth elementals, which they just reused the Colossus model for to differentiate them from the "imposter" elementals. If you have to define them as Mountain Giants though, they aren't Titan made.

Well, there are Collosi in Shadowmoon which Illidan is trying to bully into allying with him. Once you pretend to be an Illidari slaying them Behemothon, King of the Collosi kind of snaps and freaks and tells Illidan "HELL NO MAN NOT COOL.

I got the impression that Pathaleon drove the collossi mad and attracted them with his fallen crystal rather than created them.


"It must be that the evil emanations from that giant crystal are summoning the mountain giants and driving them insane."

What I said still hasn't been refuted, they are not by any definition Titan born Mountain Giants, just elemental spirits.

Well, wasn't trying to contest that part of your claim anyway.

Mountain Giants are Titan related, there is no retconning that

Well, being crafted by... that doesn't mean they weren't there before.

You know, it would be something like crafting your own elementals..

Anyway: Have they anything to do with the Northrend giants?

They're 2 different species, I believe.

And we have "stone" versions of both of them.
