Haze - the mighty Troll Shaman was at his hut near Orgrimmar, resting after a long 2 year expedition across Azeroth with this guild.
During this time, he had made friends and enemies, he had fought against giant fire elementals, dragons and even an old god… yet, despite all the knowledge he had gained from both his fights and communing with the elemental spirits, he still lacked a few basic bits of knowledge compared to his (rather stupid) best friend “Grom” the Orcish warrior.
As he sat in his hut and inspected the latest haul of loot from a raid, he grabbed a mace and inspected it, before deciding it wasn’t as powerful as his current one - next… next was an intriguing item to Haze - It was a strange bladed object… he vaguely remembered Grom using something similar in the past! IT WAS A SWORD!
Excitedly, Haze picked the sword up - but by the blade accidentally! In shock, he dropped the sword and fell over - IMPALING HIMSELF ON THE BLADE!
It went straight through his heart, killing him instantly.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the story that has been told through generations of Orcs, Trolls and Taurens, warning their kiddlywinks of the dangers of Shamans using Swords, and why Shamans will always refuse to wield one.
