Great tragedy has rocked the Tauren tribes and shaken their once stalwart devotion towards the Horde. A disagreement, between the new orc warchief Garrosh Hellscream and the beloved Tauren chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof, led to a duel that ended in Cairne's death. With his loss, the vile matriarch, Magatha Grimtotem, launched a murderous attack attempting to seize control of Thunder Bluff for herself. However Cairne's brave son, Baine Bloodhoof successfully repelled the attack and banished the surviving Grimtotem to the farthest reaches of the land.
Under Baine's hopeful leadership, the Tauren people now seek to heal their wounds and restore the balance between the various factions of the Horde. To this end, a new generation of tauren Sunwalkers has arisen, to lead their people into the light of the new dawn and the promise of rebirth. As a proud tribesman of Mulgore you must uphold the honor of your people and safeguard the lands of your ancestors.
