Mother’s Day

ancestralgrounds2

A letter to Garrosh’s mailbag reveals a shocker: Garrosh’s mother, Lakkara,* is alive and well in Nagrand, where she has lived in self-imposed exile until being treated for an especially potent strain of the red pox. Garrosh returns to Nagrand to investigate, and after confirming that it’s true, returns to Orgimmar with his mother and begins introducing her to the orcs’ new home. While bringing Lakkara to Grom’s monument in Demon Fall Canyon, Garrosh is attacked by a revived General Grebo; Lakkara intervenes to protect her son and is killed. Furious and believing the humans to have been behind the attack, Garrosh begins to plan a massive attack on Theramore, including an insidious new potential weapon. Before the attack can take place, though, the truth comes out: the return and death of Lakkara were all a scheme by Magatha Grimtotem to create the illusion of Lakkara’s return, only to take her away.

* A quick note: I realize that official lore since this story arc has revealed Garrosh’s mother’s name as Golka. For blog purposes, Garrosh’s mother is still acknowledged as Lakkara — but don’t worry, I’m not just ignoring Blizzard. Bear with me for the time being; it will all mesh together eventually. There is A Plan.™
