New NPC with a disability in Dragonflight! (spoiler)

I saw a WoWhead article about a new NPC we’ll meet in Dragonflight.

I thought this was pretty cool and am glad Blizzard is making strides at diversifying the lineup of NPCs in all manners. I feel characters with disabilities (especially invisible ones) tend to not get that much representation.

While I’m able-bodied I’m really happy to see this and cannot wait to interact with Sansok!

Hopefully there will be many more characters like this in the future.

Why care? Such a pointless thing. Will they be spotlighting the next random piece of paper on a desk too?

Never mind that at the same time people with a Disability are neglected by keeping something like the Slime Cat out of LFR.

I know drek’thar is blind, but he’s old school and from AV.

Maybe I’m not remembering correctly, but I don’t recall a big lore character who is deaf, I don’t even remember a quest NPC. Maybe there are.

Also with a sign language interpreter, I think that’s super cool and new.

Not sure if they have done a deaf character before

My response was to the idea that they are going woke. Because theyve had a prominent character with a different sensory disability before. So this cant be called a new thing for blizzard to include others.

WoW is full of people with severe handicaps: All demon hunters are blind, and entire orc clan chops it’s hand off, Drek Thar is blind AND crippled, Vol’jin is dead and Mekkatorque is a gnome.

Gnomes are cool!
They just need to change their walking animation to not be a waddle

All of that was made before derangement syndrome took hold of the populace, so it isn’t special.

Yes, that Orc clan that chopped off their hand replaced it with a blade, totally disabled.

I don’t care, I feel every little thing that is ‘inclusive’ or ‘diverse’ needs to be celebrated in some way here in the West.

Chop off your hand, get a fully working hand prosthetic and then sit back and enjoy your disability payments/status (at least in the USA). It’s a disability.

best hunter = best hunter
best hunter =/= chief.

Is this the first deaf NPC? I know Softfoot was mute. And we’ve had a few blind NPC’s.
