Azeroth, the setting of the vastly popular MMORPG known as World of Warcraft is teeming with creatures of every imaginable size and kind. In the game's latest expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, players will get to meet many of these creatures, some old and beloved or hated others new and definitely interesting. One of the creatures that you might meet in the expansion is a Nerubian Vizier. Ruthless, cunning, and immensely powerful, these creatures are fearsome enemies and equally useful allies. To have them on one's side would definitely give you an advantage. There is a lot to know about these creatures. For their brief history, read on.
The Rise and Fall of the Nerubians
According to lore, the Nerubians have existed in an underground kingdom in Northrend since time immemorial. There, the peaceful and scholarly tribe of spider people lived in peace, rarely venturing out of their kingdom and into the surface and preferring the study of magic and the gathering of knowledge than warfare and bloodshed. For centuries, their might was undisputed. It was said that their collection of magical tomes rivaled that of Dalaran, and that the expanse of their wondrous kingdom cannot be covered in mere months. However, when the Lich King arrived in Northrend, he immediately senses that the Nerubians, of all the denizens of the continent, were the only ones who posed him some considerable threat. Thus, he planned to annihilate the whole city and its people, from the mightiest Nerubian Vizier to even the kingdom's helpless normal citizens. Far from being a weak race and untrained in war, the Nerubians shed their scholarly skin and fought with equal vigor and violence. However, the Lich King and his innumerable army of the Undead won in the end. The kingdom lay in ruins and the Spider people all but wiped out.
A Lingering Hope
But all was not lost. There were Nerubians who escaped and plotted revenge against the Lich King and his Scourge. It is said that the survivors, from the Nerubian Vizier stripped of his power, to the common Spider-people who ached for their lost land, vowed to bring the Lich King down. The Nerubian Viziers led the renegade attacks against the Scourge, and with their sorcery and arcane knowledge, they became the leaders of what was left with the once powerful kingdom.
In the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, you would more likely see a Nerubian Vizier than ever before. They are leading their people against the ultimate battle against the Scourge. It is rumored that they are working for a Nerubian emperor, although this remains unverified. Still, having the Nerubians and their leaders, whether they just be the Nerubian Viziers or an Emperor in the Shadows, as allies in the war against the Scourge is definitely an advantage.
