Got another multi-part post today. Another Saurok sighting in BfA, a video to inspire some Saurok warrior animations, and also a screenshot I took.
With the new sighting, this is something that I think may have been in the game since launch. In Tiragarde Sound, there is an underwater bar area, which you can breathe in the general area, called the “Whale’s Belly.” If you want to know how to find it, here’s a video:
From what I saw, there were two Saurok in the area next to each other.
As far as I can tell, the tribe they come from isn’t clear. You can’t interact with them, and they seem to have male Worgen idle animations of sniffing in the air (how they do this underwater, I have no idea) and the green Saurok does a Worgen roar emote every few seconds. They do appear in friendly green text when you mouse-over them, and a Dwarf captain walking in the area walks up to them and does a friendly roar emote to them.
Obviously this place is meant to be fun and silly, but it does serve as another instance of Saurok being among other races, actually having fun this time, and not wanting to tear the other patrons’ faces off. It also shows that Saurok can swim quite well in order to get down to the area. Funny how ideas meant to be silly or cute seem to add more to Saurok personality. Hey, I’m not complaining. I still hope to see the day Saurok hang out at different Horde establishments as members of the Horde.
The next part of my post involves a couple of playthroughs I’ve found of Soul Calibur V’s arcade mode as the character, Aeon, who is a lizardman character I’ve talked about before earlier in this megathread. You can see the action here:
Different forms of Lizardman were playable in previous Soul Calibur games, where they wield a sword and shield. In this game, Aeon dual wields axes. Looks kinda like a fury warrior, doesn’t it? I thought I’d share it to inspire some Saurok warrior animations, although I don’t expect Saurok to grow wings or breathe fire, cool as that would be.
Lastly, I did take another screenshot of my Horde Assassination Rogue using the Glyph of Disguise to turn into a Saurok. This time, I sent the Saurok ambassador to the Sethrak’s Temple to have him learn more about their race from the Blood Scribe there:
It was also to show that I do support Sethrak as a playable race, regardless of what faction they would be on. WoW could really use a playable reptilian race, and Saurok and Sethrak could offer a lot if both ever became playable. I’ll always support Horde Saurok, and I’m happy to see the support for playable Sethrak still going strong. Regardless of what happens in the future, the Saurok stand with the Sethrak!
More Saurok research to continue in the future!
