Survival of the Fittest

On the border of Mulgore, Desolace and Stonetalon Mountains there’s a rather large plateau which on first reflection seems rather peaceful but on closer inspection tells a very different story. It makes me wonder what happened here to make these seemingly normal looking mice, rabbits and prairie dogs mutate into something unexpected. I’ve heard of fighting cats and dogs but this is something you need to see to be believed.

In what appears to be random in nature, the critters will mutate one by one, growing a lot larger than normal. Suddenly wearing helmets and other weapons to do battle or exterminate the other species.

This strange critter war is being waged between the battle-armoured:

  • Prairie Dogs with¬†spiked pit helmets and daggers;
  • Axe wielding Rabbits ready to pounce on unsuspecting enemies and;
  • how about those Mice wearing skull helmets and dual wielding shotguns.

Whether this is just an easter egg of sorts or something to look forward to for Mists, you can be sure they had fun adding this into the game.

Don’t worry though, as they seem oblivious to outside visitors. Unless of course you attack one, so beware if you happen to come across the path leading up to this spot while leveling, as they may just get the better of you.

  1. Maybe they’re preparing for MoP, when they’ll get to do battle as well as the larger heroes of Azeroth?
