Here is an interesting picture from a scene in one of the starting quests of Howling Fjord. It's from 15 000 years ago and it shows what seems to be two Vrykul parents (Mom and Dad) with a human child.
Is this a possible hint at the origin of humans? Are humans perhaps the descendants of the Vrykul? Much like the Aesir and Vanir looked just like humans only bigger.
I have hardly quested at all in Northrend but if we say Vrykul are like the Aesir do they have enemies in Northrend like the Vanir then? It will be fun to find out!
Majestic viewsOn a completely different note, I took the opportunity of trying out the premade level 80 pvp-characters that was made available on the Beta. They were equipped with flying mounts so I took a quick flight over the Storm Peaks and Howling Fjord.
Something that strikes me from what little I've seen is the difference in height and depth of Northrend compared to Outland and the rest of Azeroth. It feels majestic in Northrend when you stare down the abyss outside Ulduar or look at the cliffs surrounding the Howling Fjord.
